PIN IT! <3

How to get started?

Before I share to you the  favorite affiliate programs and networks that bloggers  use to monetize their website, here are a few tips to get you started and put you on the right path:

Never treat affiliate marketing as ad display. You can’t just put a banner on your sidebar and expect sales. You have to engage with what you’re promoting and share your experience by writing it or reviewing it.

Write a list of products and services you wrote in your blog and would want to suggest your readers to purchase or try.

Remember to disclose! It is required by FTC regulations that add a disclosure on the pages and posts where you have affiliate links. Grab a free disclosure template from my RESOURCES

Get creative when promoting your affiliate links and start using it on all your social media platforms.

To tell you frankly, there are a lot of affiliate programs out there but I suggest that you choose a few that are relevant to your content and start testing out a few different strategies to see what works for you and your target audience.

To give you some insights, here are a few of my favorite high-paying affiliate networks for bloggers! Remember that you can earn commissions ranging from 5% to 60%.

AWIN

I recommend this for new bloggers or to all those who get started with affiliate marketing it is because they have a WordPress plugin that automatically transforms all your links into affiliate links once approved. Install the plugin first and your blog is instantly monetized! You can have access to merchants such as Fiverr, Etsy, Paperchase, Misguided, ASOS, Swagbucks, John Lewis and more.

The only catch is that they require a $5 admission fee (that you get back with your first payout) so don’t worry it is worth your $5!


 

Shareasale

Shareasale has over 1,000 merchants that are exclusive only to their site, which means this is the only program that you can use to promote them. They also have wide access to a good selection of digital products and services.

This is my current favorite network with over 4,000 current merchants such as (Wyzant, coupon surfer / , Name CheapGrammarlyTailwind, and Creative Live), no matter what you blog about you will find something here that your audience will want to buy!

 Ebates

Ebates is an online shopping platforms that gives you cashback every time you purchase something through them. They work with all these big names such as Amazon, Nordstrom, Ebay, Nike and so on which is why you can end up saving big sums of money over the time if you remember to go through them before shopping online.

They also have a referral program that awards you $5 for every person that makes an account with them via your link. They even offer bonuses such as $40 for referring the first two people, $100 for referring 10 people, $600 for referring your first 50 people and so on.

Sign up using my link and get a $10 bonus just for creating an account!

Flexoffers

Felxoffers has a growing collection of 10,000+ affiliate programs, which can be promoted using their expanding selection of applications including content feeds and text links, among others when you get approved! Brands such as Walmart, Macys, Bloomingdales etc.

 


Skimlinks

Skimlinks, a top affiliate network that gives you access to all its merchants when you get approved. Unlike other affiliate networks, you don’t have to separately apply for each advertiser and wait to be accepted because once you’re in you are free to promote all merchants Topshop, Ebay, ASOS, JCPenny, H&M ,Target etc.

They also have WordPress plugin that converts all your old and new links to these merchants into affiliate links, which is a time saver because you could be blogging and earn money without any extra effort on your part all at the same time.

Ever wondered if you’ll need a breast pump when your baby arrives? A pump can be a very useful tool for a new mother to have even if she intends to only breastfeed her child.

I’m currently expecting a baby and considering breastfeeding. So, when I’m browsing for good breast pumps I came across this link on how to get a free pump 100% covered by your insurance.

I was able to get this free double electric breast pump  through my Medi-CAL pregnancy-related insurance  Now, let me show you the steps I did to get this free breast pump.

First, you need to have an insurance and they must cover the breast pump for you.

you can see and check if you qualify for breast pump by filling up forms online.

10 tips on how to pass US VISA interview

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

As you know, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. So be sure to check my previous post about How to apply for US VISA before reading this.

Preparing for US Visa Interview is a bit difficult so I’ve written down helpful guides which you can follow so you can be well prepared during your appointment and answer all the questions right.

  1. Arrive at the US embassy or consulate where your appointment for a visa is scheduled.

Remember that if you have incomplete applications you will not be admitted. Please contact the consulate at least 48 hours prior to the interview to arrange admittance for an assistant if you are PWD.

2.    Stand in a queue outside the consulate and show the following:

·         original passport (Visitors traveling to the United States are required to be in possession of passports that are valid for six months beyond the period of their intended stay in the United States.)

·         appointment letter

·         Visa application fee receipt

·         2×2 USA visa photo (optional, if you submitted online then no need to bring a photo with you)

3.    Security check at consulate

Once you enter the consulate, you will go through a security check, which may include a full body metal detector scan so make sure you leave all the prohibited items outside prior to entering as if they see some prohibited items with you they will ask you to leave and come back again.

Prohibited items:

electronic equipment, cell phones, chargers, cords, USB, sprays, perfumes, liquids, backpacks, bottles, food, sealed envelopes, sealed packages, and dangerous items are not allowed inside the consulate.

 There is no facility at the consulate to store prohibited items. If you bring prohibited items with you, you will have to dispose of them before entry or you can ask the people outside to look out for your belongings but it is at your own risk.

4.     Be sure to answer in English fluently. If you cannot talk in English it is a red flag for them!

Tip: you can rehearse answering questions before your scheduled interview to be prepared.

5.      Answer only the questions you are asked. Do not provide more information than you are asked.

For example,

Question: What is your purpose for travelling to US?

Good answer: for vacation.

Bad answer: I want to go there because I think USA is a nice country and there’s a lot of tourist spots and the weather right now there is good.

6.     Do not present any documents that you are not asked to unless the officer asked for verification. Below are the documents I suggest you carry with you

Supporting Documents:

·         Bank certificate or sponsor’s bank certificate (show money should be 50,000 above)

·         Certificate of Employment/ School letter saying you’re currently enrolled (officers wanted to be sure you have a proof you will come back to your country)

·          Roundtrip plane ticket (optional)

·         Trip Itinerary

·         Letter from sponsor about your trip or invitation letter for weddings etc.

·         Old passports with travel stamps of country you’ve visited in the past before.

See  RESOURCES  for sample letter templates/documents/checklist

7.      Make eye contact when answering

Never answer the officer without looking at him/her directly in to the eyes as they might get suspicious and doubt your answers.

8.     Be truthful about your intention, officer can detect if you are lying and if your answers are inconsistent.

Remember to answer all the questions based from the answers you have written down in your application form. Inconsistencies of your answers can be alarming to the officer.

9.     Be calm and avoid unnecessary movements (as soon as you enter the consulate they are already checking your body language so be sure to just relax)

10.  Be polite and accept the officer’s decision.

If the interviewer approves your application, you will know immediately. The officer will say something like “Your visa is approved”. Your passport will usually be delivered to your mailing address by courier within 3-4 business days. If the officer denies your application, you will know immediately too as he/she will give you a paper with instruction on how to re-apply again.

I hope this post helps you to be well-prepared for your VISA interview!

This is my actual VISA

BOROUGH- NYC STYLE COMFORT FOOD opens 24/7 in MANDALUYONG

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Borough Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Have you ever been depressed or stressed out and craving for a bit of comfort and the first thing that pops into your head is comfort food? Well, I have encountered such scenarios and it led me to discover this place I described as “HOMEY” and what cool about this place?  It is open for 24/7! yeah

Let me astonish you with this profound or cliché Euphemism: “HOMEY” to let you understand why I chose this word. I can say this word is a bit of catch call for comfort food but it is commonly used for the cheap eats. You know, when you or anybody in your house can make that themselves. Easy huh?

So this homey vibe recipes of this restaurant is what I like the most aside from the chill hippy atmosphere inside and the really friendly-good-looking Chef Cuit Kaufman in-house!

Let me give you some reviews of the menu they have served to us for the QUIZ night event for bloggers happened last Jul 25, 2016 in BOROUGH, Known for A chill and laid-back spot that is open 24/7 to serve good comfort food.

 

 Note that Recipes are NYC inspired.

  1. chocolate chicken wings 280.00
  • For the adventurous. Baked wings coated in Cocoa and Cinnamon. Served with Cilantro Sour Cream.

I guess this what made me smile! Simply because I love chocolate and cinnamon in the first place. It tasted far from what you are expecting of overload sweet-cinnamonish texture. I did taste the cinnamon flavor more than the cocoa but later on, it would tastes as if it got over toasted. 3/5

  1. buffalo chicken wings 360.00
  • Classic Hot and spicy wings originally from Buffalo, New York, Served with real blue cheese dip.

The spiciness is tolerable but it is not something I would crave long after my visit but it is definitely worth a try! 4/5

  1. Fries in a basket 150.00
  • A whole basket of fries. Served with Borough’s ‘Odessa sauce’

Quite normal fries for me but the Odessa sauce got me munching for more! 3/5

  1. Haystack onion rings 180.00
  • Piled high, served with BBQ sauce and Sour Cream Dip. 2/5

I think this is a bit tiny strips of onion rings and I didn’t really enjoy it much.

  1. Popcorn calamari 290.00

    popcorn

  • Popcorn-crusted Fried squid tossed with extra popcorn for good measure. Served with Clarified cheese butter. 3/5

I love the buttered sauce paired with this popcorn and it surprised me that the bite-sized calamari they have included tasted great however, it is a bit small size for me and quite a bit expensive for a popcorn.

  1. Hummus 130.00
  • Blended chickpeas mixed with extra virgin olive oil and garnished with paprika. Served with homemade Pita bread. with veggie sticks

this is worth a try if you are a fan of Hummus and good for sharing for 5-8 people. 4/5

 

I also had the chance to taste one their bestsellers:

Mom’s Milk and Cookies 220.00

  • Chewy fresh-baked cookies in assorted flavors. Served with a pitcher of cold milk (The Chef’s special blend).

I love the chewy texture of the cookie tasted like fresh from the oven! And the milk is good too! 5/5
