Doing Affiliate Marketing In The Philippines
Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make money using the power of the internet here in the Philippines. It simply means “promoting other people’s products or services and earn a certain percentage of commission every successful sale you refer to them”.

Why Start Affiliate Marketing Business?
If you’re someone who’s trying to do entrepreneurship but you don’t have any idea of creating your own product or services, then affiliate marketing is for you.
Or you don’t like managing your own inventories, handling product returns, managing a massive number of employees and all other stressful jobs to do, then affiliate marketing is the best option for you.
One thing that I loved the most about doing affiliate marketing is that you no longer have to create your own product and figure out if it would work or not.
You’ll just have to find out what’s already selling and working, and just then create a system on how you can effectively promote the offer and make lots of money.
If those lines above sound interesting to you, then let’s go ahead and learn the process of how to become an affiliate marketer here in the Philippines.
Here’s How To Start Affiliate Marketing
In The Philippines For Beginners
These are the simple steps that I have followed on how I get started affiliate marketing here in the Philippines.
I’m going to explain it as simple as I can, but in case you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to leave it in the comments box at the bottom of this page and let’s have a conversation.
There’s a lot of affiliate marketing guide out there that gives you a lot of information that usually ends up you getting confused, especially for beginners.
What I’m going to do here is to just sum them up into three steps, because based on my personal experienced, you will learn all other advanced stuff when you already into it, or when you start doing it.
Step 1: Choosing A Profitable Niche Market
Okay, so the first step is choosing a niche. A niche simply means a specific target market where you can build an audience around it and throw them affiliate products.
If you want a long term business where you can put all your best in doing it, you should always consider the things that you are passionate about.
Let’s just say, you love dogs so much, or to be specific, Siberian husky dogs. Then it’ll be easier for you to create content about it because you love the topic.
Like starting maybe a blog about it, starting a Facebook/Instagram page, or YouTube channel where you can build an audience or a potential market.
It’s important that you choose an specific niche so that you can master and eventually dominate that specific market and you might even end up creating your own brand and have a business not just promoting affiliate products.
Step 2: Finding Affiliate Products Or Services To Promote
After choosing your niche, (which in our example above we are going to target the market who loves “Siberian husky dog”), the next step is to find affiliate programs to promote.
It can be products like “dog food” or “dog training” and other potential products we can promote to our chosen target market.
Now that you know what affiliate products you can promote to your niche, the next step is to join affiliate programs where that particular product is available for you to promote.
I have a list of top affiliate programs here in the Philippines where you can sign up and find products to promote, just scroll down to find it.
Let’s just say you noticed that “dog food” is available on Lazada, then go ahead and sign up on Lazada’s affiliate program.
The system and tools you need will be provided for you to be able to promote affiliate products, and it varies on which affiliate product marketplace you are going to sign up.
No worries, you will learn all this stuff soon. The next thing that you should not forget to learn is the marketing side, or how are you going to promote affiliate products.
Step 3. Learn How To Promote Affiliate Products
Marketing is where the real deal happens. It doesn’t matter how great and amazing is the product is, what matters the most is how you can have it shown in front of your potential buyers.
Now with affiliate marketing, let’s talk about how you can promote affiliate products especially here in the Philippines. Because if you can’t drive sales, that means no commissions.
I will only share with you the ways that I personally do, and that I consider the best options.
1. Promote Affiliate Products Through Blogging
It takes a lot of effort and skills if you want to start a blog, but ones learned it, It’s guaranteed that even if you will be thrown to any part of the world, as long as you have a computer and internet connection, you can make money.
Everything can be learned, all it takes is the willingness and reason behind why you need to learn it.
Blogging is one of the best ways to promote affiliate products, but it requires some advanced skills like managing your own website, writing your own content, search engine optimization, etc.
But, if you have money that you’re willing to spend to get started, you can outsource all those skills above or hire someone to do it on your behalf.
But yeah, how blogging works, why did I consider it as the best way to promote affiliate products.
I will make a scenario, again based on our example above, the niche is about “Siberian husky dog”.
Someone search on Google about “best dog food for Siberian husky puppy” and then you have an article about it on your blog, you did your best and you optimized it, so, that particular person who is searching on Google landed on your article where your affiliate link is placed.
That person click the link, buy the product and boom! you make money.
The good thing about it, once you’re article is there and ranking on search engines, then you will be starting making money passively, and it can be for a lifetime.
I actually have a guide on how to create a blog, just –[ Click Here ]– to watch the videos.
Also, you can also do social media marketing like running Facebook Ads and Google Ads and have your traffic land on your articles.
2. Through YouTube Videos
Another best option to promote affiliate products and services is through creating YouTube videos or running your own YouTube channel.
It kinda works the same with blogging, it’s just that this one doesn’t require skills like the skills you need to have in running a blog.
There’s a lot of tutorials on YouTube on how to create and run a YouTube channel, so just search for it if you don’t know about it yet.
And with affiliate marketing, you can create content or videos like product reviews and have your affiliate links on the video description.
Provide value and guide to the buyers, and drive them to the product page using your affiliate links. Let’s just say affiliate products from Lazada.
3. Through Social Media Pages
You can also promote affiliate products on social media, like on Facebook if you have Facebook pages, or Instagram pages or even on Facebook groups.
And if you’re expert enough and know how to run social media advertisements, then it’s going to be an advantage for you.
I’m just making a summary of the options here, it would take me thousands of words if I’m going to explain everything about it.
So if you wish to learn everything in each of the options above, just search on the internet.
So the next part is going to be the affiliate programs that are open for us Filipino marketers.
