- It takes money to make money~ whether it's paying for a money-making model, investing on your knowledge, or paying for traffic.
- TARGETED traffic is king.
- Change your mindset about selling and promoting (products, your self, etc). Promoting is not a negative. It's just another procedure to get to your goal.
I have started earning online in 2006 and continued til late 2011. I completely stopped when I had my second baby in 2012; two kids + online gigs = super haggard mommy. I didn't want to lose my youthful visage for a few dollars so I stopped working online ;-) Anyway, back in 2006, most of the "making money online" opportunities were get-paid-to <insert activity here> systems. Freelancing gigs like writing for other people's websites or making logos, designing websites, etc were just starting to gain popularity. The bulk of my income came from writing articles and running ads in my blogs. But the thing was, if I didn't write (for employers or in my own blog), my income suffered. That was it back then: no work, no pay.
Fast forward to 2014, the most popular way to make money online for Filipinos is to be a virtual assistant or VA. In the comfort of your own home (no travel time through traffic!), you can earn as much as P30,000 / month ~ enough for a young family with one kid! Other ways to make money online now includes uploading YouTube videos (popular accounts earn millions a month!), making paid mobile apps or free apps running ads, being an affiliate to online stores (so many options now!), etc, etc. But as in 2006, the same is also true in 2014: no work, no pay. Thus, my quest now is to find an online money-making system that I can set up and just leave running. Will keep you updated! :)
And it's coming early next year!! PLUS it has a 7-second boot time!! Is there any other OS faster than that?? This video below includes a look at Chrome’s short boot time, some of the apps Chrome OS will be able to run, and the operating system’s interface. Google says that if you're a developer, has the right netbook and know-how, you can use their Chrome OS source code and have the OS run in your netbook now. Way cool!
The operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. So today, we're announcing a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome — the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.I'm very, very, very excited about this (as most tech-loving people are) and I just can't wait for 2010! The big question is: will this be FREE (it's open source after all) or will they charge a nominal fee for it? And how will Microsoft react to this? Do I smell a Microsoft versus Google war brewing? YEEHA!!
Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010.
Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web.
