  1. I think the most common for Philippine bloggers are affiliate marketing, ad space and sponsored reviews. I have applied for Lazada but I have to admit, I still have to understand their program more regarding affiliated links. I'm still getting confused! Hehe.

  2. I have an email for CPM but I'm still not sure if the company is legit. I might not get paid from them.
