MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Lazada Philippines (www.lazada.com.ph) held a thanksgiving dinnerand recognition ceremony for the culmination of their “Affiliate Online Revolution” contest last January 22, 2016 at the Asian Institute of Management Conference Center.
The contest called on all new and existing affiliates to step up to the challenge of generating the most number of sales for Lazada from October to December 2015. Cash prizes amounting to one million pesos were given away to top performing affiliates. Michelle Ng, who operates Discount Group Asia, was awarded Php 200,000 for being the overall top performer. Winners for the other rounds were also awarded with cash prizes as high Php 150,000 each. The commission that the affiliate program has extended doubled in the last two months making potential and current affiliates more driven to earn extra money in promoting Lazada. Marc Farrales, a full time IT programmer and the contest’s overall top 2 performer, earned an average of Php 60,000 for the past two months compared to his average commission of Php 10,000 monthly before the competition. His strategy is to maximize the use of Facebook groups in pushing promotions.
More than just profit
More than earning commission, affiliates are able to be part of the fast growing ecommerce industry. “Through the Lazada Affiliate Program, I learned to set up online promotions and be a digital marketer. The program empowered me to earn money to support my college education. It also taught me how to use my extra time in a very productive way and most importantly, connect with amazing people whose passion for blogging inspire me everyday to become better in my craft” mentions Chester Chanco, a 4th year Entrepreneurship student from the Ateneo de Davao University.
Janette Toral, e-commerce advocate, shares “I am glad that Lazada took the bold move in launching an exciting affiliate competition. I am sure that this made our participants realize that affiliate marketing is a lucrative business if they put their hearts and minds to it. Anyone who aspires to be an expert in ecommerce should consider becoming an affiliate. It can give you hands on experience by putting your skills to the test that no formal training nor program can teach you”.
The recognition ceremony also paved way for the launching of the Chinese New Year Sale in Lazada. A wide assortment of unique finds for the year of the fire monkey and discounts as high as 88% across 15 categories will be up for grabs from January 26 to February 8.
