- Breaking into the Philippines11.5.2018
A FRIENDLY WARNING: our today’s post is not really tolerant. We don’t want to offend anyone or to point out some… weaknesses, but there’s no getting away from it, so we say sorry in advance.
Time goes by and affiliates are still asking what offers they should run traffic to in Asia (but not Thailand, Malaysia or Vietnam, of course). Everybody understands that there are a few good offers but more enterprising ones already run traffic to them and feel great, making easy money.
Diet Stars, for example. The second we said this offer is breaking records, everyone started to run traffic to it. Also, people really liked our Morocco insights, but we know that pretty soon the lead cost will go right through the roof.
So what’s this all about? It’s time to prepare reviews at other GEOs.
The Philippines – mobile internet coverage area is really huge, young population but not very bright people. With a population of more than 90 million people, they have an average I.Q. of 86. Well, this fact helps affiliates, because the population of the Philippines is the people who order our favourite COD offers.
And, unlike Indonesia, mobile Internet is available throughout the whole country there.
Now, get to the point. In a word, the Philippines is some kind of a mix of Vietnam and Thailand offers. VN-traffic is cheap, there is lots of it, but conversion rates there are really low. TH-traffic is expensive, payouts are very good but it’s much harder to get profit there.
Average cost per click in the Philippines is about $0.02-$0.04. Conversion rates range from 0.5% to 1.5%. The saddest thing is that people there don’t go for adult offers. At all. That is weird but there is nothing you can do.
Well, they are obsessed with a healthy lifestyle. It exists at the level of a national idea – keep your apartment as clean as it’s possible, what and when you eat, etc. Also, they are hung up on “parasites” so Detoxic, for example, is popular there year-round.
Now let’s talk about how to run traffic there.
White-hat options are not profitable at all. This needs an aggressive pre-lander and banners with celebrities. And don’t waste your time on local celebrities – they are such bores.
https://www.instagram.com/itscamilleco – this girl gets conversion rates to the top better than anybody else. She is a fashion- and lifestyle- and even beauty blogger. The only noteworthy in the Philippines. You can easily find photos where she advertises her products and put the products you need instead of them, using photoshop.
ATTENTION: Don’t use any materials without changing something. This girl has a confirmed blogger-account on Facebook so you can be banned after the very first creative material.
Also, you can make really cool pre-landers using a local TV-show called “Salamat Dok”. It is a weekend morning show where three show’s hosts talk about healthy lifestyle. Use those hosts for creative materials and you can make your pre-landers in the style of the show. There are lots of episodes on YouTube. By the way, those episodes can be fully inserted in pre-landers. Nobody will watch this until the end but it definitely will enhance the credibility.
You can make creative materials in both local (Filipino) and English languages. But we recommend using Filipino there.
Speaking of the approval rate and targeting.
The approval rate is pretty unstable. The rate varies from 33% to 55%. Nobody knows what this is about, even call-centre operators. And as a tradition, we give you the statistic from our call-centres:
About offers. We recommend you to try Detoxic and Ecoslim. But maybe someone will be much luckier than all of us and get profit from other offers too.
Anyways. The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything. If you are looking for something… exotic then try the Philippines. It will not disappoint you.
Good luck out there!
