Why should my business advertise on Tokyo Cheapo?

Simply, Tokyo Cheapo readers are more likely to buy.

Even if you don’t think of your product or service as ‘cheap’, if you think your product offers better value than your competition, then our readers are looking for you. The thing that separates Tokyo Cheapo from other sites is that our readers are in a buying frame of mind. You don’t look for things like cheap pizza or low cost rental cars unless you are in or will soon be in the market for that product or service. Our readers are constantly looking for better ways to do things. If we tell them about it, they’ll try it. So if you have a new product, this is the perfect audience.
