Some links and updates on local affiliates for bloggers as well as new tools and services you might want to check out.
- If you’re interested in earning some extra money, you might want to check out the Asia Century Affiliate Network. They’re an Ortigas-based European company doing affiliate campaigns in the Philippines. The network pays a minimum of Php0.50 per ad click and up to Php100 per lead. They own the Halo-halo.ph brand and I’m sure you’ve seen those contest banner ads for some time now. You can register here to join.
- If you want to inject banner ads into your RSS feeds, you can try the Feed Footer Plugin (download). It allows you to put up to 10 random ads into your feeds. That’s one way to maximize your affiliate revenues from Asia Century.
- If you want to self-manage ads, you can try Google Ad Manager (though a little complicated and bulky). A more simple plugin for WordPress is Max Banner Ads (download here) which is easier to use as it allows you to rotate multiple banners in one spot.
- If you are in the Tech, Entertainment, Auto, Business/Finance, Sports niche, you might want to checkout Direct Ad Sales from Performancing. They’ll represent your blog and find advertisers for you. You just need at least 100,000 pageviews per month to qualify.
