Advertise and Sponsor
We are an international network, a website, Yang-Sheng.com, and an e-magazine featuring ancient wisdom, modern research, clinical applications, and practical tips for mind-body exercise, spiritual cultivation, food as medicine, sexuality for healing and longevity, including articles written by over thirty columnists and other experts as well as daily inspiration for health, happiness and harmony.
Why advertise with us or become a sponsor of Yang-Sheng?
Although we are new in the field (initiated in February 2011), the precursor of Yang-Sheng, the Qi Dao e-journal, was founded in 2006, and has brought about 3,000+ subscribers to the Yang-Sheng network. By March 2012 (one year later) Yang-Sheng website had 16,000+ unique visitors per month (total visitors over 130,000; up to 1250 unique visitors per day). Our Facebook page has 3,400+ fans and 15,000+ active viewers per month. In addition, about 10,000 unique visitors to read each issue of our flip-book version, and about 3,000 subscribers downloaded the PDF version of Yang-Sheng magazine each month to share with their friends and students (many of our readers are professional instructors of Qigong, Taiji, Yoga, Reiki and mindfulness meditation). Approximately 70% of our visitors are from the USA, with the remainder primarily from Canada, Europe, East Asia, and Australia. Our audience consists predominately of practitioners of mind-body exercises (such as Qigong, Taiji, Yoga, reiki, mindfulness meditation, and other meditations), healthcare professionals who are interested in preventive medicine, and people who are interested in taking care of themselves for health and happiness.
Yang-Sheng offers a unique platform to reach a special health-conscious population. We also offer a variety of advertising options to fit most budgets.
