The new Marketing Services Directory Asia has been launched by AdAsia Media. Companies operating in this area such as ad agencies, media agencies, brand consultants, PR firms, digital agencies, web designers, printers, film production houses etc. can list themselves without charge.

“I thought there were already plenty of directories covering our industry until I started to explore them,” explained AdAsia Editor, Allein Moore. “Most were out of date or the companies placed in the wrong category – such as printers listed under ad agencies. The few good directories charge an arm and a leg and therefore have a limited number of firms within them. We decided to make the listings free and change only small amount for any special enhancements.” Of course, search engines are free but Moore explained that, unless you know the name of the company beforehand, one has to rely on what pops up.

The Marketing Services Directory Asia allows one to add coloured panels and logos as well as a company profile. There are also ad spaces available.

How does AdAsia aim to keep the thousands of entries updated? The IT team have programmed it so that the listed firms can go in and change to a new address or phone number at any time also with no charge.

If you want to check your listing or put your firm within one of the 60 categories then go to www.marketingservicesasia.com. There are still categories in some of the countries to be filled so the publishers is inviting firms to add themselves in. This new Directory should be a very helpful and useful service not only to people working in Asia but for USA and European clients, too.
