More ways to make money online

Over at Web Worker Daily, Anne Zelenka writes about 10 New Ways to Make Money Online. Some of the items she mentioned have already been around for sometime while others have become too saturated as well.

I’m now thinking of ways to make money online that’s more relevant to our region (or specifically in the Philippines):

  • Buy & Sell items in TipidPC. I look at TipidPC as somewhat like the eBay for the Philippines, even before eBay.ph came into the scene.
  • Work as a Proxy Player. Some games require you to play a certain amount of time before you reach a level or number of points. I have been told by a friend that these players (students and office workers alike) would pay other people just to continue their game play (proxy-play) while they’re away. Rates go as low as Php20 per hour and the player also pays for the net cafe rent. Others do it from home too.
  • Sell mobile wallpapers and ringtones. The telcos and CPs have already dominated this space but as an individual with talents, time and enough resources, this can be done. Here’s how I would do it. Create all your original mobile wallpapers and ringtones from scratch. Set up a small website to upload screenshots or demos of the products you created. Setup an SMS server on your PC (software costs as low as Php5,000 and all you need is a mobile phone and the cable). Start receiving request for downloads and get paid via Smart Money or Globe G Cash.
  • Proxy blogger. I know some network bloggers are doing this. They have too many blogs to write for that they could not maximize their output for a day. So, if they’re being paid $5 per post, they would look for someone else to blog for them and pay them $2 or $3. They reach their daily quota and they still get a cut.

Lots of other niche industries not yet tapped around here.

    There are two Pinoys I know who are well known in the infomarketing biz, Joel Christopher and Ian Del Carmen. Creating digital content in the form of ebook, audiobook or video is one area where pinoys could excel in. Think of HappySlip, and Rex Hermigido.

    thanks for the tips. i am also making money online by ad placements.

  3. Jonas says:

    Hey, Abe. The mobile content thing interests me. Would people from other countries also be able to order sa proposed setup mo or this is just feasible for the local market? :)

  4. Miguel says:

    For the US market, mobile content is more on mobile web browsing. There are a number of sites for this already, for instance BlogStar.

  5. Jonas says:

    Thanks for the tip! Checking it out. :)

  6. jhay says:

    Interesting tips, especially for those who would go on vacation from school this summer. Alternative sources of money once the allowance stops flowing because school is out for the next two months. ;)

    @ Jonas

    The SMS service delivery can be done either via mobile phone (kahit di na 3 or 4 digit special numbers but just regular 10-digit ones) or via web so there’s no geographical limitations.

  8. aaron says:

    I need to get myself some contacts for those network things.

  9. GM Tristan says:

    actually, the “proxies” are properly called “pilots” in the MMORPG street-lingo.

    There are “pakyawan” rates or on a per-level basis. The economies of supply and demand in this psuedo-black market service is interesting. perhaps I will blog about this sometime.

    Strength and Honor!

  13. Nice inputs, Abe!

    There are lots more ways to earn money online.

    But my biggest suggestion to Pinoys is to make money from the global market and not just from the Philippine market.

    Here is another website where you earn money just by socializing.

    You get paid just by inviting your friends to join. This is just like friendster, but this site pays you for using it.

    Click this link


    That is my referral link, if you sign up under my referral. I can teach you how you can get yourself a lot of referrals as well.

    This is a very nice get paid to socialize website, since the Philippines is the Friendster capital of the world. So why not take this opportunity.

    Watch the video so you can understand more about this website.

    Ok thanks

    To Kevin, i will sign up in cash crate under your referral.

    This is to show my support to all Filipino entrepreneurs in the internet industry.

You’ll get paid $0.01 for each video you personally view, $0.10 for each comment you leave, and $0.35 for each subscription you make.

  24. Hello just thought i would tell you something.. This is twice now i’ve landed on your blog in the last 3 days searching for totally unrelated things. Spooky or what?

  25. fidel f. oliva says:

    thanks for the good tips, maybe i have to ask my sons to do it for me. I’m not computer literate like them so they maybe able to do it.

  26. I was thinking I’d add a info right here to demonstrate you the best way to earn money working with dating affiliate websites along with absolutely free strategies. I succeeded to make 5 thousand bucks per month using the methods in this free posting, http://bit.ly/5kmonthguide – click to see.

  27. Fasthosts processes are inherently insane. Whoever created things was had no idea wtf they were doing. In fact, they fail to notify domain admin contacts when a domain expires. Test them ahead of buying their service. Email [email protected] and see if your message is addressed or instead if you get an example of how hard someone is to reach! Fasthosts throws up huge numbers of roadblocks such that customer service is virtually inaccessible. In my opinion any choice besides Fasthosts is a good one. Run as fast as possible.

  28. jobucks says:

    proxy blogger is a good idea

  29. I really like the style of your writing. I found your blog on bing and decided to check out

  30. Scolex says:

    i’ve been playing online games, but as “pilot” siguro kailangan kilala mo personally ang may-ari ng account. Mahirap na baka ma scam.

    In third month ko almost $200 na, kasi po traffic and

    I have a list of high paing keywords. Yugatech is a inspiring one.

    Pero alam po natin na malakas talaga ang buy and sell lalo na sa mga high tech gadgets.

    Post your item on sulit.com, ayosdito and adpost.com

    Additional info lang po yun actually. Aside from blogging to make money online, many Filipinos are now earning a descent income with freelancer.com

    Thanks for yugatech for keeping us motivated…

    Keep up the good work.

  33. I’m glad at hindi yung typical post lang about making money online but tips na talagang magagamit ng mga Pinoy.

    You try Paid Surveys as well, this is the best paid surveys I ever know w ww.surveysavvy(.)com/?m=5347437
    Best in US and Canada, but if you’re in other country, you may just register and see if your state is on the list and there you go

  39. malds says:

    The TPC idea i think is great. I honestly prefer it to sulit and ayos for the techy things. It’s well targetted for tech stuff so there are more people there who actually know about what they’re selling and who arent just doing it to make money.
