1. Earn Money Online Through Blogging

I bring it up to be number one because this is actually my favorite option. Blogging is a great way to earn money online and it’s a long term business. One of the good news on this option is that in the Philippines, blogging space is not that crowded yet.

What I mean by that is that there’s still a lot of money we can make through blogging.

Blogging simply means creating free content for potential readers and make money out of it through different ways of monetization.

You can either sell your services through your blog or promote other people’s product (affiliate marketing) or sell Ad space, like from Google AdSense.

It’s just like Television, let’s just say ABS CBN. They make free content like the drama “Ang Probinsyano” and then they cut the movie and they will show you an advertisement.

That’s how they make money, and is also the same scenario when it comes to blogging. More content means more readers equals more money.

I have a free step by step tutorial on how you can create your own blog. Just (click here) to get started.

I also included to that post every important stuff you need to know about blogging so just click that up, to know everything about it.

2. Launch And Grow YouTube Channel

Second ways to earn money online in the Philippines is by creating content for YouTube. It’s also the same idea with blogging, and some even called it “vlogging”. The only difference between the two is that you can get started with YouTube for free.

And the only thing you need is some basic skills in video editing, video recording, and some talking skills and your good to go.

My simple explanation on how potential is creating videos for YouTube is the picture below.

There are many ways you can also make money with YouTube, just like Blogging. You can get started with Google AdSense or letting YouTube display advertisements on your videos.

And along the way when your audience or subscribers grows, you can also promote other people’s product through brand deals or affiliate marketing.

You need at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time to be qualified for Google AdSense. It takes time to grow on YouTube. Not unless if you’re an artist like Toni Gonzaga and many other popular stars who are now doing YouTube.

Me personally I’ am growing three different YouTube channel as of now. One is my personal channel and two other compilation channel.

If you kinda shy person who doesn’t like showing yourself to the camera. Then you can start with video compilation, just keep in my mind to learn the skills of distinguishing copyrighted content.

3. Start An Ecommerce Business

According to Statista website, eCommerce industry in the Philippines will be a billion-dollar by 2022 in terms of revenue.

Another best way to earn money online here in the Philippines is by selling your own services online. But what services you can offer? well, think about things that you are good at. If you can do photoshop then you can offer services like logo designs or t-shirt designs.

Or maybe you can edit videos, write articles, build websites, etc. then you can offer services.

If you think you know nothing about any particular skill that you can turn into services, then just search on YouTube what do you want to learn.

You can get started selling your services online through Facebook groups. Or sign up to freelancing websites like Fiverr and Upwork.

8. Start A Dropshipping Business

Another great opportunity to start earning money online is through dropshipping business. It actually belongs to the eCommerce industry, I just made it as a separate option because it’s a unique type of eCommerce business.

If you don’t like managing your own inventories and creating your own product but you want to have an online store, then dropshipping is the best one for you. I actually tried this option myself with a business partner and it was pretty good.

This is actually one of the best business models that you can also do as a Filipino. The only thing you need to really master is the marketing side.

You need to master Social Media Advertisement like Facebook Ads, Influence Marketing and Search Engines Optimization (SEO) if you don’t like always spending money on advertisements.

If you want to build your own dropshipping store, then just let me know. I can assist you for free.

9. Buying And Selling Products

I’m talking about rush sale items online that you can usually find on Facebook, especially Facebook marketplace. The way this option work is simply buying items for a lower price (rush sale items) and then sell it for a higher price to the market. I actually tried this myself, I bought a laptop from a student who badly needs money for her tuition fee, (and of course, it’s below from the items standard price), and sells it again for a higher price and makes a profit.

Most people who are doing this type of business, they call it retail arbitrage.

Aside from that, you can also buy and sell services. Let’s say you know someone who needs a logo design but you can’t do it yourself, so… find someone who can do it, negotiate the price and flip it and make a profit.

The biggest marketplace that I know where you can buy services is From article articles, video editing, logo design, everything you can imagine, they all have it.

Watch the video below, for a guide on how you can start to making money flipping services (arbitrage).

If you are born with talents, or you’re just simply a funny person who can do entertainment, then there’s a great chance of success for as an Influencer.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
