5 Ways to Make Money Using Your Smartphones or Tablets

After possibly spending a lot of your hard-earned cash last Christmas on gifts and food, it’s now once again time to save up as the new year begins. Like most people, you might be thinking of new ways to make that few extra bucks. Why not start with something that’s always with you? In this article, we list down some of the ways you can earn using your smartphones and/or tablets.

1. Prepaid load services

Prepaid Loading Service

Although it has been around for quite some time now, prepaid load services from our local telcos are still one of the most popular sources of income using your very own smartphone or feature phone. What’s good about it is that you don’t need to have an expensive phone with heavy specs as you (and most people do) can even use feature phones. Additionally, it is pretty convenient that you can just do it at the comforts of your home.

2. Selling pre-loved items online


Selling pre-loved (or second-hand) items used to be something that could only be done using computers, but they soon made their way to mobile devices so people could easily sell online. This paved the way of posting an ad right away after taking photos of the product. Just shoot and upload the product shots, key in the description, and all you have to do is wait for a response. Instant money!

3. Transportation services

You’re now probably aware of transportation services like Uber and GrabCar after their issues with the congress and LTFRB last year. Both of them rely heavily on smartphones and tablets since booking rides are done through them. So if you have a smartphone and a car to spare and you want to earn extra money, why not consider signing up and provide private transportation?

4. Outsourced services


There are a number of websites out there that host wanted services for different companies abroad like Upwork. If you’re good with a particular skill, you can use your device to scout and apply for projects that you think you’ll be effective in. This might sound new to some, but there are reportedly a lot of Filipinos already making serious money while staying home. Are you good at animation or illustration? Check out the available jobs under that category.

5. Crowdsourced apps


For those that are always on-the-go, and like taking pictures and videos of things, there are services that require you to do just that which you could sell afterwards. As an example, there’s Scoopshot that helps you sell timely, relevant, and publication-worthy footage to media entities. All you have to do is be where they want you to be (like a rally, for instance) and take a shot so you could upload it to their database. Those with the most interesting shot or better angle will be picked by the companies and bought from the uploader. It’s that simple.
