1. Toluna

A survey site which you can access on all platforms. There’s an app for it here (iPhone) or here (Android). Toluna is a mini community-based platform with the key function of phone devices being public polls and random surveys. You earn in the form of points every time you complete a survey and these points can be used to redeem attractive prizes, ranging from PayPal cash to Capitaland vouchers. Occasionally, polls also reward you with points too. The interesting thing about this platform is that you can create surveys yourself too, kind of like a free tool for social experiments where you can obtain a small pool of results on what people think about a particular topic or product. This produces fast instant survey results for your polls, without having to persuade people to do it through Whatsapp.

Recommended for: Teenagers who want to earn additional S$20+ a month or for adults whose primary objective is not to make money online but to gain opinions and perspective from other people in this community. Do note that Toluna takes up to 3-4 weeks to process your rewards once redeemed.

  2. Redundancy is a real issue for the average middle aged guy or gal out there today. The trouble is online and digital marketing skills is touted like some mysterious and a difficult to understand subject matter that is meant for the young. Really, if you look at it, the basics of marketing still applies to the internet or digital economy, albeit a little different on the approach. I started taking the time and effort to understand this and all in my forties, so it really is not impossible to understand if one can realize that digital marketing is a tool like anything else that drives your purpose in the marketplace.

  3. Making money online is everywhere now. For Uber or Grab driver, in fact they are making money online using their online platform. Drivers receive notification from the online apps and accept the job to pick up riders.
    For affiliate marketers promoting products on Amazon or Lazada or Q0010, they make money from the commission when buyers click their links.
    I have started creating my online business with a powerful platform to achieve my goal of owning my own business with #onlinebusinessfor50. The platform give me many tools to do keyword research, host my website with SSL security, purchase my own domains, with large community of internet experts to guide me along.
