101 Ways to Make Extra Money




The March 2006 issues of Entrepreneur magazine features “101 Ways to Make Extra Money“.

I quickly grabbed a copy thinking this could be a really good read only to be disappointed. Of the 101 ways that they enumerated, only two of them were internet related:

# 74 – Web Master. The quick “how to and how much” mentioned Php300 per page (so 90’s IMO). And I thought being a “web master” is supposed to be an IT career already, not just an extra gig. Oh well, you can be a “web master” from 9 to 5 then still be a webmaster in the evenings or week ends.

# 49 – eBay Trader. Well, since we already have the local eBay.ph, I guess some people are really making money out of it.

I was actually expecting “paid blogger” on the list. Silly me.

Other technical gigs included in the list are Computer Builder (I think they meant assembler), Content Provider (selling ringtones to telcos), Personalized Photo Calendar Maker, Tape Converter (V8, VCD, DVD).

The rest are really odd jobs (i.e. Bee Keeper, Suckling Pig Roaster, and Matchmaker). I really don’t know where they pull these ideas. Just wasted my Php125.

There’s an article about podcasting there too but nothing we don’t know already. Just wanted to correct something the writer, JC Medina, stressed: “Podcasting is actually a marriage of two key technologies: MP3 and RSS“. It’s not really mp3 but “digital media” (audio or video for that matter). MP3 is just the popular format but there’s a whole lot more — Quicktime, DivX, etc.

    It’s a good thing I haven’t bought one yet.

    I’ll mention on one of my blog posts. I hope you won’t mind. :-)

    i bought a copy of it too. talk about odd
    how about number 11. Papier Tole Maker? XD

    @ taorist

    I actually sent an email to their Editor about my post here and I think they got it since the tech writer emailed me about my correction.

    @ alfa

    No problem! ;)

    @ retz

    Really odd ones…

  5. mparaz says:

    What is “90’s” about 300/page? The rate is now lower or higher? Or webmasters no longer quote per page?

  6. hmmm… the price really sounds outdated… but I guess all of us knows that already.

    dito sa states… kasama sa top 10 entry level careers is a .NET developer… with a $45-60k per year entry level salary.

    too bad I barely passed c# back in college.

  7. mparaz says:

    How much is the rate now?

    And, can you compare C# programming rates to web development rates?

  8. yuga says:

    In the 90’s, people charge on a per page basis since webpages then are mostly static. Now, it’s more like an hourly/daily basis or a per module basis. Say web design is 10k (all-in), CMS is another 8k, etc…

    I believe the PhilWeavers group has an industry standard set for their members.

  9. I hope I’ve seen this post before I bought a copy! I bought it days ago and I only had time reading it today. And then, now at 1:01am, I saw this post. Got the same reactions.

    This is a great way to make money-using pay-pal. ONLINE! With just $5, a Pay-pal account and 30 minutes you could make $$Thousands$$ in 2 SIMPLE STEPS!

    The only things you will need are:

    * An email address
    * A Premier or Business PayPal account with at least $5 deposited in it
    * 30 minutes of your time

    ONLY 2 SIMPLE AND EASY STEPS!

    TRUE STORY –> June Alscar tells how she ran this gifting summation four times last year. The first time, she received $6,000+ in cash in two weeks and then $14,000+ in cash the next three times. When this program is continued, as it should be, EVERYONE PROFITS!!

    THIS CAN AND WILL WORK FOR YOU! HERE ARE THE DETAILS: Post this letter in 50 message boards, chat rooms, or newsgroups. It is simple and takes a very small investment! Just give one person $5. THAT’S IT! Follow the simple instructions and in two weeks, you should have $10,000.

    Simply send a $5 gift to the person at POSITION ..1, if your birthday is BETWEEN JAN 1 THRU JUNE 30, OR, if your birthday is BETWEEN JULY 1 THRU DEC 31, send the gift to the person at POSITION .. 2. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. . .

    STEP 1 Ok, if you’re not already a PayPal user, the very first thing you need to do is use the PayPal link below and SIGN UP. It takes just two minutes!

    Here’s the URL:
    Sign up for Paypal Premier or Business Account at this link. Copy and paste the link into your browser address.
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_pro-nonpro-welcome

    Be sure to use this link so you can sign up for a free PREMIER or BUSINESS account. You’ll need to have a PREMIER or BUSINESS account (and not a PERSONAL account).
    STEP 2 The first thing to do when you have your Premier/Business PayPal account is to IMMEDIATELY send a $5 payment from your PayPal account to the email address in the position (1 or 2 – depending on your birthday in the timeline), along with a note saying: “HERE IS A $5 GIFT FOR YOU.” Be certain to add this note, as this is what KEEPS THIS PROGRAM LEGAL. Instructions on how to send a Paypal payment
    are under “SEND.”

    STEP 3 REMOVE the email address you are replacing (the one you sent $5 to), and REPLACE it with your own email address. REMEMBER: Use the same EMAIL ADDRESS that is used with YOUR Paypal account!

    1.I realy have faith in this system if you do too just think of the possibilities!! Read this, follow the instructions word for word,
    and watch what can come from six individuals with a PayPal account!

    Earn THOUSANDS with PayPal as proved on Oprah and 20/20!!
    coming

    As Seen On OPRAH & 20/20 – TURN $6 into $24600! (or more, thats just what he made)
    Earn money using PAYPAL as seen on Oprah & 20/20
    THE PAYPAL $6 DOLLAR MONEY-MAKING METHOD
    AS SEEN ON OPRAH EARN HUGE $$$$$$$$
    Ok this is all you need:
    1) An email address
    2) A PayPal account
    3) $6.00
    THIS IS A 2007, CURRENT EMAIL LIST
    ?Ever since the internet became popular, the word “scam” has become a daily term. I have never once tried any money making “system” outside of this because of that very reason. However, after reading reports on the validity and reputation of this money making system (seen on Oprah,CNN, and other media forums) I decided to give this one a shot… Especially since the so called “risk” is only $6.00. I mean, for the chance, what a joke right? Anyway, only hours after implementing this exact system I about fell out of my chair as money ACTUALLY started rolling in. I couldn’t believe it and for that reason, I wrote this intro and became a believer in this system.?
    -Dude who wrote this. (hey at least I?m not taking his credit)
    WHAT IS IT?
    The idea is that of a system that takes advantage of the power of
    compounding. And in a big way, let me tell you. First and foremost
    understand that there are countless spin-offs of this system that try to make a “quick buck” off of people. Long lists, the 5 & 10 dollar trees, the birthday systems, etc… Those spin-offs do make money because of the ease of implementation of this idea, but they do NOT use the compounding advantage. This system is THE legit and profitable one.
    Here is how it works…
    There is a list of 6 email addresses (you’ll see it as you read further). Each of these people has already taken part in this system. When someone new comes along (such as yourself) he/she removes #1 off of the list, moves the other five email addresses up one position (i.e. #6 goes to #5, #5 to #4, etc.), and places their PayPal email address in the #6 position. This process is what develops the power of compounding. The bottom line is this… Honesty and Integrity creates Profitability. Following
    this EXACT process is what creates the money, and that is why this system has been raved about in the media. Altering the system creates weak results. The legality of this system comes from the idea that you are of course creating a mailing list, and a “service” is being provided (more on that later.) Now on to how your $6.00 creates BIG money…
    INSTRUCTIONS:
    STEP 1:The first thing to do is highlight and SAVE this entire post in word
    or notepad on your computer so you can come back to it later.
    After that, if you are not already a PayPal user you need to go to
    the PayPal website at https://www.paypal.com/ and SIGN UP. If you want to be able to receive credit card payments from other people then you will need to sign up for a PREMIER or BUSINESS account (not just a PERSONAL account). This is highly recommended to allow others easy payment options. In order to place the initial $6 into your account, you will have to verify your bank account with PAYPAL (which may take a few
    days). PAYPAL is 100% secure and is used by millions of people
    worldwide.
    STEP 2:Here is where the action occurs. The first thing to do is to send a
    $1.00 payment to each of the 6 email addresses on the current list
    from your PayPal account. To do this quickly and successfully, follow these simple steps:
    1. Login to PayPal and click on the “Send Money” tab near the top of the screen
    2. In the “Recipient’s Email” field enter the email address
    3. In the “Amount” field enter “1” (This is your $1.00 payment)
    4. In the “Category” field select “Service” (Keeping it legal)
    5. In the “Subject” field type “EMAIL LIST”, and in the “NOTE” field enter “PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST”. By doing this, you are creating a service and maintaining the legality of the system by “paying” for the service.
    6. Finally, click on the “Continue” button to complete the payment.
    Repeat these steps for each of the 6 email addresses. That’s it! By
    sending the $1.00 payment to each address, you are implementing the compounding POWER of the system. You will reap what you sow!
    Here is the current e-mail list:
    *************************************************
    The email list:
    1) [email protected]
    2) giuseppemissione…@libero.it
    3) wonderwall210…@yahoo.com
    4) [email protected]
    5) [email protected] 6) [email protected] 3:Now take the #1 email off of the list that you see above (from your saved file), move the other addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc.) and add YOUR email address (the one used for your PayPal account) as number 6 on the list. This is the only part of the document that should be changed. ** Make sure your email address is the one you have registered with PayPal **
    STEP 4 post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups or message
    boards. Keep in mind that there are tens of thousands of groups online! All you need is 200, but remember the more you post the more money you make – as well as everyone else on the list! I’ve began to see money roll in before I even hit 100 posts, but try to hit around 200 to allow maximum exposure. Use Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or whatever your internet browser is to search for various news groups, on-line forums, message boards, bulletin boards, chat sites, discussions, discussion groups, on-line communities, etc.
    For example?
    log on to any search engine like yahoo.com or google.com and type in a subject like ‘MILLIONAIRE MESSAGE BOARD’, ‘MONEY MAKING DISCUSSIONS’, ‘MONEY MAKING FORUMS’, or ‘BUSINESS MESSAGE BOARD’, etc. You will find thousands and thousands of message boards. Click them one by one and you will find the option to post a new message. Fill in the subject which will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group, and post the article with the NEW list of email addresses included. THAT’S IT!!! All you have to do is jump to different newsgroups and post away. After you get the hang of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup.
    HOW THE MONEY WORKS:
    When you post 200 messages in various forums, it is estimated that at LEAST 15 people will respond and send you a $1.00 ($15.00). Those 15 will Post 200 Posts each and 225 people send you $1.00 ($225.00), etc. through 6 levels of email addresses. For comprehension purposes, here is an easy viewing chart:
    1) 15(1) = 15 people ($1) = $15
    2) 15(15) = 225 people ($1) = $225
    3) 15(225) = 3375 people ($1) = $3375
    4) 15(3375) = 50625 people ($1) = $50625
    5) 15(50625) = 759375 people ($1) = $759375
    As you can see, your $6.00 has multiplied exponentially. What other opportunity that is as simple as this can cash in the way this can?! I’m not going to say this is going to make everyone over $800,000, but within a few WEEKS you begin to see results, thanks to the speed of the internet!
    When your name is no longer on the list, take the latest posting in
    the newsgroups and begin the process again. Simply amazing…
    Follow the system as described, and enjoy your PROFITS!!!
    REMEMBER… HONESTY AND INTEGRITY = PROFITABILITY
    YOUR NAME COULD CYCLE FOR A LONG TIME! THIS MAKES IT THE GIFT THAT
    KEEPS ON GIVING.
    This is excellent seed money to start or expand a business, buy your dream home, car and pay off whatever bills you may have. Good luck!
