I received my first check from Advertlets yesterday. Josh Lim called me personally last week to confirm the spelling of my name, before he printed it on the check. Since my first review of Advertlets 3 months ago, it seems that Josh has become one of my friend – yes, this sounds like a butt kissing – but sms-ing me at the middle of the night, searching for somebody to write a review for a Digi Fu-Yoh Street Blast concert here in Kota Kinabalu, has made the relationship really close.
I personally do not know Josh, we never met and I do not know how he look like, but I like what he did. Even more when I see my wife smile when she saw a RM300 check in our post box yesterday afternoon. I must admit that is not much as compared to my Adsense check, but it is a good start.
The total figure that I earned were in this distributions:
- RM50 – I earned from writing one reviews on Advertlets for their “RM15k for the first 300 bloggers”.
- RM200 – I earned from writing one reviews on a Digi Fu-Yoh Street Blast concert here in Padang Merdeka, Kota Kinabalu on the 2nd of June.
- RM50 – I earned from CPC and EPM.
The check came with a letter, a strip of Advertlets stickers and two button badges. I was thinking of pinning the badges on my blazer, but before I do that, I think it is better for both of my children to wear it first. I will show them the photo when they grew up and tell them that Uncle Josh is one of the good guy who send daddy the check – to pay for their diapers and toys!
I heard a lot of rumors about Advertlets. Some of them are good, but some of them aren’t. Some says that the ‘other’ blogger-advertiser network is better, but I believe that Advertlets will strive for the best. Unless the ‘other’ blogger-advertiser network can prove otherwise (with my bank account), I will give Advertlets my full support.
