So, how Filipino bloggers earn money?
Below are the list of proven ways of how Filipino earns money from Blogging.
But, First of all, I just want to make this clear Filipino bloggers earn money but its not as easy as a cup of tea. It might take 3-6 months before you can actually see your first earning. It also depends on your dedication, passion and commitment. Also, out of 10 only 3 bloggers stayed and successfully monetized their blogs.
Here are some of the few reasons of why Filipino Blogger fails:
- People thinks once they’ve established their blog it will start earning.
- They easily get disappointed with the negative results.
- Too impatient with positive results
- Gets discourage by negative opinions.
- No specific time frame for blogging.
Now let’s continue to the topic, Below are the list of the proven ways of how Filipino bloggers earn money from blogging.
1. Advertising Networks
Advertising Networks is also known as ad-networks its a platform that serves as broker between publishers and advertisers.
Publisher/Bloggers will secure an ad-space on their websites then ad-networks will provide a code for that ad-space.
Advertisers will now avail advertising packages etc on the Ad-networks. Then the advertisement will show on the ad-space provided by the publishers.
Once a visitors of the site will click on that advertisement it will automatically generate income for the publishers.
Below are the most popular Ad-networks for Filipino bloggers:
Google Adsense – offers cost-per-click (CPC) based ads. Since it is owned by one of the biggest organization “Google” be sure to follow their strict guidelines to get approved.
Infolinks – offer in-text ads, overlay ads, banner ads, in-screen and in-frame ads and you can choose the ones which you want to display on your website.
Revenuehits – has a variety of ad formats you can choose from, to place on your website and gives instant approval. (Perfect for Starters)
Propeller Ads – offer CPM, CPA, and CPC ad programs and real-time reporting for all the ads. This makes it easy to track the performance and earnings easily. (Perfect for Starters)
Bidvertiser – is an old, yet trusted ad network which offers so many types of ad formats that it becomes easy to choose the types which suit your blog well.
2. Affiliate Programs
Affiliate program are features of merchant websites that enable members to sell their products and services and you get commission whenever a successful transactions is made. Merchant will provide a unique url/link called affiliate link or sometimes called referral link.
Then you will promote the merchant product and services and include that affiliate link.
Commonly used in Product and Service Reviews. By creating a blog post about a specific product stating your feedback, texture, packaging, effects, etc. then just insert the affiliate link anywhere in your post.
Whenever someone click that affiliate link they will be redirected to the merchant websites and if they buy something you will earn the commission.
