I have written lots of product reviews for my clients there- from car baby seats, electronic guitars, ebooks to cloud computing saas, rice cookers, and online casinos. I also have read lots of internet marketing books and resources. I can say that I fairly am knowledgeable in internet marketing. However, I lack experience in applying these theories and strategies I have learned.
In my two years, I noticed that I earn when I work a lot. I'm planning on gradually creating a passive means of income. I know internet marketing requires work too but I think it's more exciting than reviewing products you're not interested with. This week I've written 15 sets of rice cooker reviews. I didn't even know that people treat buying rice cookers seriously.
I have been thinking of starting a few niche affiliate sites myself. I only have around $500 for web design, logo, etc. My main concern is that my location can be a problem. Most affiliate programs I have come across accepts leads from US, UK or Europe. Seeing that I'm in the Philippines, that doesn't look good. Even if the program accepts Asian leads, a lot of people here still don't have credit cards to pay for digital products.
If that is so, do you think I have a chance in affiliate marketing? I'd love to hear advice from some members here. If you're Asian and has considerable earnings in affiliate marketing, I'd love to hear some tips.
