The answer is definitely, YES! Earning money online is possible in the Philippines and I’ve been doing it since 2007. There are a number of ways an individual can do to make alternative income on the internet.
My online income streams were varied. I have experiences in the following:
1. Online research (bids and solicitations, news research, US clients)
2. Search engine results evaluator (US client)
3. Virtual assistant (US, UK and Australian clients)
4. Article writing (US, UK and Australian clients)
5. WordPress blog design and maintenance (US, UK and Australian clients)
6. Social media accounts maintenance (US and UK clients)
7. Customer service/technical support (US Clients)
These above-mentioned tasks are home based yet I still have an employer. I have a specific number of hours required and a quota to reach every single day. And my salary is fixed. The good side is I could cut my travel and food expenses. I even work with just my boxer shorts on.
After 2 years working in this set-up, I grew tired of the routine. I don’t have control of my time. When I travel I always bring my weighty Toshiba laptop since I still have to log-in online in order to finish my employer’s assignments. So I searched the web for alternative ways to make money online.
Fortunately, I discovered blogging through a video uploaded on Youtube featuring successful Filipino bloggers on GMA 7’s Mel and Joey. That video changed my perspective. I was so inspired that I immediately implemented what I learned on July 2009. Here’s that exact video:
I agree with Abe Olandres’ statement in the above interview. Making money online especially here in the Philippines is NOT easy yet it is POSSIBLE.
Blogging requires hardwork, patience and dedication. No one is guaranteed to become a millionaire overnight. If you want to learn how to blog and monetize, you should have a mentor to teach you the steps and experiences where you can pattern from. [Contact me if you want me as your mentor =) ]
Through this, you can shorten your learning curve and eliminate the trial and error steps on what works or not.
