Our advertisement program is designed for small businesses, organizations and corporations whose business target is Africa and Africans in the Diaspora. Businesses located anywhere in the world can market their services, products, resources, and ventures to this broad audience on the AfricaResource platform. We are very much interested in working with African businesses, as well as businesses that actively and positively engage Africa and the African Diaspora.

A distinctive feature of our service is that clients who enroll in any of our advertising packages for a year will be profiled on AfricaResource and featured in our upcoming business podcast on global business, economics, and trends. The profile will feature an interview with the CEO, a brief company profile and history, and why Africa is an integral component to their company growth.

If the outlined options below do not work for you, and you require a custom advertising package, we can work with you to develop a comprehensive plan that is tailored to meet your company's need. You may contact us for more details, or with further questions at advertising at africaresource dot com.
