Advertising Packages Expatious – Your Expat Community Forum
The Expatious Forums is a high growth community forum for Swiss expats served pages. We offer to you an excellent opportunity to place your ads in front of all these Expatious enthusiasts for a fraction of the price of print advertising.
The Expatious Forums were founded in 2010 and we have grown at an astounding rate over the past year. The majority of our membership is here to ask and share information about housing, leisure, banking, holidays and other aspects of making live as an expat in Switzerland better. With tons of expat related information and helpful members and staff in the forums, each member can always find an answer to their question, the part they need in the classifieds, or just hang out in the lounge with other like-minded ‘Expatious people’.
