You sign up and install a poll on your website. Once we have the appropriate demographics, we can start matching you with advertisers, and you can start making money.
Fill in the registration form, and it will be submitted to us for approval. Once approved, you can run campaigns on your site.
For bloggers: you make money, and you get to know about your blog readers.
To qualify, you must be at least 16 years old. There are no traffic requirements. Your blog must also not contain any inflammatory or illegal content.
The Advertlets network is open to primarily blogs, however different types of websites are welcome to apply, such as forums and portals.
We know that the majority of bloggers probably wouldn’t want to advertise heavy machinery and construction materials on their blog. (unless of course, your blog is about heavy machinery). Hence, we approach advertisers whose needs and positioning and suited to the lifestyle of our blogger members.
We are currently in the process of approaching advertisers, at various stages of negotiation for different deals and here’s a sample so far of the kind of clients we’re targeting: fast food & casual dining restaurants, broadband providers, telcos, liquor and spirits companies, media companies, clubs & bars, entertainment & events companies, and the music industry.
We already have advertisers running campaigns on certain blogs. How soon you will have advertisers depends on your blog content, traffic, and the availability/sample size of your blog demographics. It is up to the advertisers discretion to select blogs for campaigns, however, if you feel you are well suited for certain types of advertisers, do contact us and we’ll do your best to propose your blog to the clients.
We operate via a CPM (cost per thousand impressions) module for the first phase of Advertlets. Which means, advertisers pay a fixed price for say, 10,000 impressions for blog advertising, and there is no additional fee involved. For sponsored posts, it is a one time fee.
In the later stages, when we launch our sponsored polls and new programs, we will have CPC (cost per click) driven programs as well. Sponsored polls will give bloggers a share of the revenue for each poll submission.
Firstly, we are the first internet advertising network to have real time demographics polls that are embedded within the page itself visitors can submit details without having to leave your blog. Also, we are Malaysian and have on-ground, active staff to look for relevant local advertisers. Lastly, Advertlets is developed by a team of professionals, namely Josh Lim & Associates who have worked on digital marketing initiatives for clients in markets such as Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, France, and the United States of America.
What are demographics? – From Wikipedia.org:
“A demographic or demographic profile is a term used in marketing and broadcasting, to describe a demographic grouping or a market segment. This typically involves age bands (as teenagers do not wish to purchase denture fixant), social class bands (as the rich may want different products than middle and poorer classes and may be willing to pay more) and gender (partially because different physical attributes require different hygiene and clothing products, and partially because of the male/female mindsets).”
While people can get an general idea of what your blog is about based on its content, demographics are a great way to determine who exactly your blog readers are and segmenting it in a way that appeals to advertisers accustomed to advertising in traditional media (TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, etc). This allows them to target a market segment that would be more likely to be interested in their product, as opposed to advertising on a blog which they have little information on.
You can encourage your site visitors to take the polls, as well as make sure that your poll code is placed high enough on the page to ensure visibility.
We can’t give you a figure right now, obviously. But how much you make would definitely be determined by:
- how much traffic your blog gets.
- how many Malaysian visitors come to your site
- how relevant your blog content is to a wider audience
- your visitor participation rate

He has also been on Fear Factor Malaysia, and is infamous for a stunt he pulled sometime back where he registered a domain name tied up to an RM30 million dollar advertising campaign , a costly public perception experience for the campaign in question, but a big push for digital marketing in Malaysia.
He has been featured on TV3, 8TV, NTV7, The Star, The Edge (Malaysia/Singapore), CNet Asia in relation to his work. He is also an active public speaker, having spoken at The World Media Summit for Children, HELP College, Multimedia University (MMU), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, and various conferences on the topics of advertising, branding, blogging, sponsorship and marketing organized by the Asia Business Forum.

Together, we have a combined number of over 30 years of experience.
RedesignMalaysia.com is an initiative to push for better broadband in Malaysia. The site includes a broadband coverage map, an ISP list (did you know there’s more than 1 ISP in Malaysia?), and an ongoing broadband blog that focuses on developments in the world of local broadband.
Currently, RedesignMalaysia is planning a public awareness campaign to protest, and hopefully reform the terrible state of broadband in Malaysia. As you might imagine,
complaining about the internet, on the internet is kind of ironic hence the need for a real world media campaign.
This is costly, and hence RedesignMalaysia has tied up with Advertlets, and members of Advertlets who wish to contribute to the fight for better broadband here can choose to sponsor a portion of their earnings to RedesignMalaysia to be used for the public awareness campaign.
Advertlets and RedesignMalaysia are both initiatives by Josh Lim Ventures.
