If you are in the blogging industry for some time, you may be aware that traffic from countries such as US and UK has higher conversion rate in terms of advertising and affiliate sales. This is because people from these countries have a high purchasing power than the rest of the world.  Most often, the reason for rejections by some advertising and affiliate sites was because I have a lower US/UK traffic. But being turned down by some sites is not the end of the world. Filipinos are known to be resourceful, innovative, creative and clever. We always find a way in order to achieve our goals. 

The Affiliate Marketing World

Previously, I presented a topic on Affiliate Marketing specifying several benefits we can get by partaking in this kind of online activity. I also included some Affiliate Programs which we can start earning from. 

In order to refresh you on the topic, allow me to reiterate the meaning which I previously shared as stated by Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income.

Affiliate Marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.

Upon conducting further research, I discovered several local stores which are also offering affiliate programs in the country. So, instead of trying to grow traffic from other countries, why not concentrate on our own? We can target our countrymen as our potential buyers. No need to worry about not having US or UK traffic. In fact, we have a lot of potential clients in our own country.  The number of internet users is continuously increasing as per statistics released by Rappler.

Currently, we have one of the highest digital populations in the world. The Internet audience's growth rate shows no signs of slowing down either.

Mobile internet access is also getting popular in the country. Because of the lower rate of mobile data, a large number of the population have access to the internet using their smartphones.

It can also be noted that online shopping is getting popular among the Filipinos. Since many individuals do not own a credit card, online shops make necessary adjustments to their payment methods. Most online stores are now offering Cash-on-Delivery (COD). A method which is favorable for most buyers. With the COD method, buyers were encouraged to buy from online shops and the habit of online shopping has been developed. 

How to Start Earning Through Affiliate Programs
