We have some very interesting news for bloggers in Singapore that we’ll like to share. And to top that off, we are rolling out some new programs to optimize earnings further! Read on…
Advertlets Reaches MORE Singaporeans Online, And Our Ad Slots Are FILLED!
We’re happy to announce that Advertlets now reaches over 100,000 online viewers in Singapore PER DAY. These are network-wide uniques – meaning that even if a single online user were to visit 30 different blogs with Advertlets ads installed, that user would only be counted once. Hence this is a very accurate count of our true audience reach through the banner ads installed on blogs.
We would like to thank you for helping us grow so quickly – and would like to reinforce our commitment to make Advertlets a viable platform for all bloggers of all traffic ranges, not just celebrity bloggers. We at Advertlets consider this a significant achievement as not only do we have the reach – we are able to provide more ad opportunities to more (and nearly ALL) bloggers than the competition.
Every month, we have sponsored post opportunities that bloggers are welcome to apply for, as well as ad campaigns that run every day across the WHOLE network. Because, as someone has said before…it’s not one blogger can do, it’s what thousands of bloggers can do – and we believe in putting that into practice!
Sponsored Post Opportunities For More!
Most of you would be aware that we have open post opportunities from SGD25 that a lot of our members can qualify for. Good news – we have a significant amount of sponsored posts coming up, some of which are above SGD100. These higher paying opportunities will be only available to Advertlets Titan members. Login to your account and check your blogger dashboard for details!
Because Your Blog Deserves A Shot!
Got great content, just not the traffic…yet? Advertlets is happy to help. Using our own network through the Advertlets Titan Widget as WELL as some very prominent local Singaporean partner communities – we will be rolling out an extensive program to feature selected blogs over the next 2 months. Contact us for details, or find out more about the Advertlets Titan program.
Yes, You Can Earn From Your Neighbours Too!
For Singaporean bloggers with Malaysian traffic, we are happy to announce (or actually, remind you since it has already been in effect), that Advertlets enables you to earn from BOTH your Malaysian (yes, Johor too) and Singaporean traffic, unlike competing networks that only allow you to earn from one source. Those with a significant amount of Malaysian visitors (above 200 per day) are welcome to contact us for some additional opportunities and earning optimization.
Blog Channel Expansion
We would actively like to invite more blogs which cover the following topics to join us: Parenting, Females, Travel, Photography, Technology & Business. We are aiming to form dedicated channels for blog advertising – which basically translates into more relevant ads, and higher rates for the blogs involved. We are primarily looking at blogs that cover these topics exclusively (as opposed to blogs that cover many topics simultaneously). Please contact us if you believe your blog fits the criteria.
You can contact us at email@example.com with the subject ‘Singapore, Baby!’ if you would like to enquire more on the above items. Thanks!
Hello people! We’re pretty excited to announce that next week, we’ve got some ads for pretty much everyone in our network, and some great deals from our advertisers that you can enjoy too!
The following campaigns start Monday next week…(drumroll)…and we have…two tech brands & two banks running in two countries!

Lenovo : Put your design skills to the test for a chance to win a new Lenovo laptop! Youth Channel only (16-28 y/o)
Dell : Various great deals on laptops and desktops from Dell. The Whole Advertlets Network
So, how does this factor in for you? Most blogs should be automatically matched with this campaign as long as you have the right ad format installed. These ads will run on all our existing ad formats (728×90,336×280,468×60,120×600) except the 165×240 and 180×150 ad formats.

A Quick Q&A on the Advertlets Titan widget…
How will I place the widget on my blog?
The widget runs rotated across the Advertlets network in our Advertlets Ad Unit and for longer/fixed durations on Partner Blogs. We are planning to release a standalone version of the code very soon for those who wish the widget to run permanently on their blog.
What kind of content will run on the widget?
The widget will mostly feature Advertlets bloggers, but will also incorporate news on Advertlets Events, post event pics, gatherings, fun happenings, contest and more. In addition, sponsors can also have their content included in the widget as well!
What are future new features planned for the widget?
Future features include the ability to show more blogs and match blogs more specifically to viewer’s interest, as well as more ways to discover relevant new blogs. It’s going to be very interesting and we are planning for a rollout of even more features in weeks.
How do I get featured? What is the criteria?
Just write to us at email@example.com with the subject “I wanna get it ON!”. Tell us why you should be featured, and we will set you up to be shown to thousands (maybe millions!).
Got some interesting posts you want more of an audience for? To get an idea…maybe you and your friends are going to perform in concert, or start a workout program, or you’re representing Malaysia internationally to compete in a pageant in a foreign country, or maybe you’ve launched a very nice new “hemsem” blog layout, or are running a contest of your own, or maybe you’ve written something really funny and original, or you’ve got exclusive coverage and great pics of a recent happening, or a project to raise funds for charity…anything different and anything interesting!
Blogger applications for being featured will be processed based on relevance and interestingness of blogs submitted, quality & originality of content, as well as the duration of your Advertlets Titan membership.
How much traffic can I expect to generate if I am featured?
As this is also based on how interesting your content/headline/image is, the results can vary due to visitor interest in clicking. However, a 25% to 200% increase per day (yes, really!) is not uncommon based on our short beta test so far.
Apply to be an Advertlets Titan now to enjoy better earnings and increased traffic, or if you already are – write to us for a chance to get featured! firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to getting it ON with you and your blog
