Is Making Money Online Possible from the Philippines?


Yes! The answer to that question is a big YES!

I started making money online from the Philippines in 2008. Though the journey wasn’t easy from the start, I finally found the road in 2007.

To be honest, I started this money-making journey back in 2000. I just had my first child that year. After giving birth and seeing her grow, I just wanted to stay at home and just be with her. But since I gave birth at a young age, money was really scarce at that time. I need to make money somehow if I wanted to stay at home.

So, I ventured out. I tried making money offline. I earned a couple of bucks but still failed because you need TIME if you want an offline business to work. Then I tried making money online. From 2000 to 2007, all I got into was a scam. I spent more money than earning it.

Then, at the end of 2007, a friend of mine introduced me to blogging. The concept was new to me that even without knowing how to do it really got me so excited. Fast forward to May of 2008, I got my first earnings online and the rest was history!

P.S. I will write more about how I earned online in my future articles. Please stay tuned or better yet subscribe with your email below so you won’t miss a thing!

    I tried making money online but some aren’t successful because you can’t redeem the rewards without reaching the minimum amount or encash the check because they send me check in US dollar.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, however I found your article a little bit short or bitin. Can you tell us more how do you earn? Do you use adsense? Or can you recommend any similar medium to earn? Thanks in advance.

    II started with earning online just like you did. I wanted to earn from home after getting stuck at home taking care of 2 or 3 kids. Had encountered scams, too. Thank God, I have found something that works, but it’s not rich quick kind of thing.

    Making money online is possible as long as you have a computer and steady internet connection. For me, making money online doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend big amount of money to get started on it.

    Teach us more. I got into (serious) blogging for 2 years now. The year before that was just into learning the stuff and the like. No one taught me so it was so difficult to read all over tutorials and understand them. It was crazy! Now, I am enjoying blogging but really not earning from it. I get products in exchange of a post though.
