How I Earn Using My Smart Phone
A mobile phone is a small device approximately 3 x 5 inches but can do a lot of wonders. From a tool for communication to acquiring new ideas by means of watching videos in YouTube or in any other platforms or by reading articles or blogs about a certain topic.
We can use it as a camera, a watch, an alarm clock, a calendar. In today’s time, almost anyone has an access to a mobile device. I seems that many people can never go out without a phone. It’s already part of our daily lives. Having mobile phone can be bring enormous benefits to the user, provided that we use it properly.
Martin Cooper, the engineer from Motorola developed the first hand-held phone that could connect over Bell’s Advance Mobile Phone System (AMPS). Motorola launched the DynaTAC in 1984.
Personally, I saw the first mobile phone in 1995 from a classmate in college and I got my first phone in 1999. It was a basic phone just intended for text messaging and calling.
Fast forward to the current days, smart phones replaced the analog phones. We can use our phones to take high quality photos and videos, we can download apps that can be of great use.
That’s when I started the idea of earning with the use of my smart phone. I am aware that some of us are using our phones to access noise.cash and read.cash. Though with these two sites, I am using my laptop. It is easier for me to type words and phrases with the use of laptop.
But what I will be sharing with you are some of the ways that I am earning with the use of my phone.
There are two ways to have a call or data credits in the Philippines. One is through post-paid line which we need to open an account with a service provider. The second one is with the use of pre-paid credits. Despite many of my colleagues have an access to internet, they would still buy mobile load and data from me.
I have three apps for prepaid loading. Coins.ph, GCash and PayMaya. Anong the three, it was Coins.ph that I would usually use to sell prepaid loads. When the time that Coinsph was still giving rebates, I would earn a decent amount from selling prepaid loads. However, the company stopped giving rebates and switched to giving reward points instead. I still use this app but I need to add on top of the price as a fee.
With the use of my online banking app with one of the popular banks in our area, I can transfer fund from and to any other bank or to other apps including the three apps I mentioned above on real time. Most transactions are GCash transfer. I am charging Twenty Pesos ($.20) for every One Thousand Pesos ($20.00).
When online shopping became popular, some of my colleagues opened their own GCash account and they were transferring fund from Land Bank to their app. However, after some time, they encountered issues when transferring fund. So, they decided to avail of my services again.
This is very convenient for them since they can even message me to do the transaction even without paying outright. They just need to pay when we meet at the office. However, after some customers haven’t paid on time, I decided to refuse transferring unless they give the cash first. I told them I am just rolling the capital.
Every month people pay their bills such as electricity, water, internet, postpaid bills, Home Credit, Credit Cards, etc. Taking a long queue with the bank or with the company would entail time not to mention that they will also consume gas or will pay the fare when going to the place to pay their bills. With the little fee I am charging, they would prefer to avail of my bills payment services.
Following the popularity of the cryptocurrency, many earning apps started to flourish. There are game apps, faucets, and survey apps that became available. These apps may not make us rich but can help us earn some amount on the side.
I have a few of these apps though I know there are many apps that which can help us in adding money to our bank.
The oldest app that I have is Freebitco.in. It is a faucet which gives a few satoshis every hour. I have been using this since 2015 and until this time, the site is continuously gaining popularity with 49 million users.
Another old app that I am using is Cointiply. The site offers surveys and other ways to earn such as watching videos and even participating in the chat.
I used to play some games offered by Bling. There were three games I used to play which made me earn some amount. I can request payment to be sent to my Coinbase account. I know these games are still ongoing but I could no longer allot time due to my busy schedule.
I’m doing a simple activity of buying through an exchange and would wait for the price to go up so I could sell at a profit.
Because of the new technology, it’s easier to invest nowadays. We can start investing for as low as Fifty Pesos ($1.00). I started investing in Ginvest via GCash since last year. Depending on our risk appetite, we can choose from the variety of investment programs being offered by the company.
The two sites I mentioned above are also offering high interest rate for the balance we keep in our account. With this, I am also earning interest in addition to the earnings I can get from the activities with the sites.
I am also using my phone to monitor my investment in Pagibig. Though Pagibig has been round even before internet.
Imagine how technology transformed from a wired telephone to smart phone. The world keeps on changing. Let us make these changes a vehicle for our success.
