“…My (site) spiked at five times my usual daily numbers. (I) had a note today from someone in Paris!” – A’Lelia Bundles

Harlem World Magazine’s 100,000+ a week audience is large, smart and social. We painstakingly create native advertising products from scratch and we want to partner with Harlem brand marketers who “get it.” But, we’re not inexpessive.


Why We Exist

Harlem World Magazine proves that “Harlem is the greatest community in the world.”

Our Philosophy

We love local advertising. Unlike others, we don’t view advertising as a necessary evil that pays for other stuff – we love it. Why? People want to hear from local business. Our goal is to create advertising so great that our audience would be angry if it went away.

What We’re Not

  • We’re not a lead generation tool. If you don’t care about brand marketing and just need leads (which honestly should be the majority of your budget), we recommend buying search engine marketing. It works.
  • We’re not cheap. In terms of sponsorships, we’re relatively expensive and require a minimum commitment of 6 months. This allows us to work deeper with local brand marketers. If you want cheap, go buy Facebook ads (low CPM) or Google Display Network ads. Both are great tools for cheap impressions.
  • We’re not a high volume operation. We always want to have fewer than 25 brand partners – this allows us to go deeper and customize more with fewer brands.

What We Are: Local Brand Advertising At Scale

Harlem World is home to youthful intelligent tastemakers who care as much about the local brands they support as the local news that they consume.

We create and curate the best content, using the best photography, the best stories, and the best design make Harlem World a must. Harlem World is fun, positive and a inspirational movement that celebrates Harlem life around the world around block.

Harlem is more than a place, Harlem is a state of mind.
