How to Make Money Online Using Your Phone

News based on studies even said that most Singaporeans spend almost 3.4 hours a day using their phones. So why not use that time to earn money as well instead of simply use it for leisure. A few dollars can go along way especially during this Pandemic.

Have you ever heard of the term Influencer? Back in the cays, influencers are usually those known people who you would usually see in Television or Movies. Nowadays though, everyone can be an influencer. With the use of your real friends, internet friends, and hard work.

As long as you’ve got a Social Media account, Instagram or Facebook, then you’re good to go.

Here are some platforms you can join to earn extra cash as an Influencer:

Partipost

Partipost is a is a mobile app that you can easily download into your phone. You can then participate in their campaigns by posting in your social media account. Each campaign contains a set of rules on what you what you should include in your post for you to earn. I have downloaded the Partipost app and have joined in a few campaigns as well.

For those who might be wondering if it’s legit, well, it is. I personally have withdrawn from my Partipost account and transferred it easily to my bank account without any issues.

What to know:

Social Media You Need: Instagram

No. of Followers: Each campaign has a different requirement. Tip: You’ll be able to join more campaigns if you’ve got more than 1000 followers.

Payout Currency: Depending on what country you are (e.g. SGD if you joined Partipost Singapore)

Countries Available: Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Philippines

Amount You Can Earn Per Campaign: SGD $5 to SGD $150

Withdrawal: Partipost is tied up with Xfers, a payment platform, which charge 5% as their transaction fee. You’ll also need a minimum balance of $5.00 in your Partipost account for you to make a withdrawal. They say their processing time takes up to 5 working days though based on my experience, transfer has been made the next day.

Note: Some campaigns might require you to purchase products that you’ll use for your campaigns. Make sure you’re willing to shell out that extra cash before you can get your payout.

Supermom Voices

Supermom Voices is platform made for moms. You’ll love this if you’re currently pregnant or have a newborn to toddler child as their campaigns caters more with that range of products. The mechanics is would require you to snap and post in your social media account for you to earn.

If you’re more of a Facebook user than Instagram, you’ll love this app too. I have experienced earning (and withdrawing) from this app as too so I can confirm that it’s legit.

If you happen to go to their website, don’t miss checking out their FREEBIES too

Note: Some campaigns might require you to purchase products that you’ll use for your campaigns. Make sure you’re willing to shell out that extra cash before you can get your payout.

Tip#1: Earn extra $$$ by doing their surverys. I’ve earned a total of $5.00 already from doing this (each survey pays out $0.20-$1.00). It may be seem like a few cents only but this can help pay out for your transaction fee so you can get your campaign earnings without deductions.

Tip#2: You can also earn by referring friends. You’ll not only help them learn how to earn extra cash but you’ll earn a bit for yourself as well.

It would mean a lot to me if you’ll use my REFERRAL CODE: ZC0M08J if you’re going to sign up an account with SuperMom Voices. Thank you😉

Narrators

Narrators is a platform for every influencer. I haven’t had the chance to try this platform though but heard good feedback about them. I noticed though that most of their campaigns require more followers compared to the other two platforms mentioned above.

What to know:

Social Media You Need: Facebook

No. of Followers: Each campaign has a different requirement. Tip: You’ll be able to join more campaigns if you’ve got more than 1000 followers.
Payout Currency: USD

It would mean a lot to me if you’ll use my REFERRAL CODE: 4W2UEISCI if you’re going to sign up an account with Narrators. Thank you😉

Try and Review

Try and Review is a platform which allows you to try their products for a review in return. Money doesn’t only comes in form of paper and coins but in real products as well. If you’re going to get food or any other product, for free, then that’s like saving some cash which you can use for other stuff. I’ve tried this platform many times already and can say that it’s worth to join it.

By simply filling up a simple survey for them to determine if your profile is what they’re looking for for the campaign they’re doing. Once you’ve done that, all you need to do next is to wait. Yes, wait to be chosen and wait for the product to arrive at your doorstep.

They’ve got a wide range of products to review which you can easily apply. There’s no limit to the number of products you can apply on. You’ll simply need to do a review and post it in your Social Media as part of your participation. While they may give some guidelines on how your post should be done, your honest review is at most important.

What to know:

Social Media You Need: Instagram
No. of Followers: Each campaign has a different requirement.
Payout : Product NOT Cash

Note: You’ll need to fill-up a short survey as you application for the campaign. This would be their basis on picking who they’ll be collaborating for the particular product review.

It would mean a lot to me if you’ll use my REFERRAL CODE: 187687 if you’re going to sign up an account with Try and Review. Thank you😉

Carousel

Carousel is a platform where you buy and sell things that you don’t use. It doesn’t matter if it’s new or old. This is a place where the saying, “A person’s trash can be another’s treasure”. I’m sure there’s tons of stuff around your home that you haven’t touched for months or years even. This is a great venue for you to put into good use those decluttering tips I’ve written on one of my articles.

If you haven’t, I recommend reading this first before you get on your decluttering. This 10 Easy Decluttering Tips would surely help your lessen the stress of doing so.

The concept of Carousel is like having an online store but instead of selling any specific goods, you can sell anything you have on hand that you feel disposing already. I’ve been able to sell most of my daughter’s clothes that they’ve outgrown already.

Instead of throwing them away, why not earn extra cash from it (to buy new set of clothes that are the right size for them), at the same time, help the environment by reusing the clothes. You’ll also be able to help others who wants to buy quality clothes but at a fraction of a price.

What to know:

Social Media You Need: None. You’ll need to download the Carousel app instead.
No. of Followers: None. Your sales would depend on how many items you post and how valuable your items are.
Payout : Cash

I hope this article makes you realise that while you really can’t find money anywhere, the reality is, you can earn money from anywhere. You can actually earn from something that you use everyday, or rather, always which is your phone. All you need is determination and hard work to make it happen.

Benefits you can get from Mindfully Using Water

On this Blog series, Mindful use of the Basics in Life, we talk about Water. One of human’s basic necessities which was supposedly free for all yet nowadays, we pay a hefty amount because of negligence. Come to think of it, water makes up 71% of the Earth’s surface, then why on earth can’t we have it for free?

I’m sure there’s more complexity and reasons behind those which I sure am not in a place to discuss here. As they say, to lessen the stresses in life, only deal with things you have control over. And that’s what I’m here for and want to remind you of. How you can you maximise the water to your advantage as a consumer.

What is water and its importance?

Water is something very important for a human body. Every cell, organ, and tissue in your body uses water for it to regulate temperature, keep it hydrated, and make it function. Water helps carry nutrients to our body cells and oxygen to reach our brain.

It also allows our body to absorb the minerals, vitamins, amino acid, glucose, and other substances. Of course, if it helps things go in our body, water is also the one that helps flush out the toxins and waste from our body.

Too much info is it?! Let’s just simply say, water is THAT IMPORTANT, shall we?

Mindful usage of water

Bathing

One basic thing we do almost everyday is taking a bath. Does it even occur to you that there’s more benefits you can get from bathing mindfully? Bathing is well known as washing of ones body using water and soap. It’s even safe that those who live in a tropical country like me in Singapore, you’re most likely to do half-baths in the evening before going to bed.

But what does mindful bathing means? It basically means using the right water temperature such as cold and hot water, depending on the time you take a bath. By doing so, you maximise the benefits you get instead of just having a clean body.

Interesting, right? Read here to know the benefits you can get from Cold baths, if this would fit your lifestyle, and if possible, challenge yourself to do it to grab for yourself the benefits of it.

If cold baths have its benefits, so as hot baths. Water heater in bathrooms have been so popular that even in tropical countries, it’s a common sight to see. I, myself, won’t lie to be one of those who fancy hot baths. There isn’t any wrong loving warm water to save you from those agonising mornings where you seem to not stop counting to yourself to get in that cold water. haha.

I remember my happiness when water heater was installed at our home when I was in HighSchool. We usually would resort to boiling water and try to bathe with just a bucket of water to use (finish bathing or not). No wonder I would skip using conditioner when I was younger. With my thick hair, a bucket or water surely won’t be sufficient for me to do a good bath.

Anyways, feel free to read more on the benefits you can get from Hot baths here.

Drinking water

Drinking water may be the most important use of water for our body. According to study, an adult human’s body consists of 60% water in total and even parts of our body individually is composed of water such as the brain and heart being 73% water, the lungs which is about 83% water, the skin which contains about 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and believe it or not, even the bones are 31% watery.

No wonder drinking water is always in everyone’s list if you want a healthy body. Though drinking water is a common thing to do, most still debate whether drinking cold or warm water is better for ones body.

In which side are you in? I won’t lie that I’m one of those who love cold water. We always have cold water in the fridge. Here are my thoughts about them though:

If we aim to drink 8 glasses or more of water everyday, then it shouldn’t matter whether it’s cold or warm. As long as you’re able to hydrate yourself throughout the day, then that’s the key.

I read somewhere that cold water makes you look bloated. Well, I’d rather look bloated than force myself to drink warm water and even hate it that much that I won’t be able to get the hydration my body needs just to look good.

After I exercise though, I’d rather drink warm water/ water that doesn’t come from the fridge. I feel this burning feeling in my chest whenever I drink cold water. It’s like when fire and ice meets and creates friction.

Another time when you need to be mindful when drinking water is the time you drink. Most adults stay awake for around 16-17 hours. That’s an ample time to slowly consume the recommended 8 glasses of water you need to drink in a day.

With that, trying to finish off most of the of those glasses of water before you hit the bed. Not only will you feel like drowning with a belly full of liquid and not to mention a restless night due to frequent trips to the loo throughout the night. So, my piece of advice, drink from the time you wake up to about 1 hour or 30 minutes till bedtime.

Great benefits you can get from Hot baths

Taking a bath is one of the most common things we do everyday. By mindfully using the right temperature of water while bathing though, you get to maximise the benefits you get instead of simply going out of the shower with a clean body.

There are more benefits though one can get from bathing from hot water. Read along to learn more about it.

Makes you sleep better

If you’re one of those who have a hard time sleeping, a hot bath might help you relax your body and help you drift off to a sound sleep. This goes with drinking warm milk before going to bed. That warmed your body gets stimulates relaxation.

Health benefits

Hot water is especially good to improve the cardiovascular system. So if you’re ever having blood problems, no matter if it’s lowers blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood circulation, hot bath can help you with that!

Relieve from flu or colds

My mom used to ask us to do steaming whenever we get stuffy nose. She boils hot water then gets this big blanket and off you go under breathing the steam. This truly gives instant relief to unblock those nasal congestion. With young kids though, going under a blanket with their active little hands is a no-no. So having a hot bath and having the whole bathroom stream kinda makes it like a sauna and does the same effect.

Self-Care

If you want to relax, hot bath’s is probably one of your budget-friendly go-to. Not only can you do it from the comfort of your home but it’s something you can do daily after a stressful day. It’s a simple self-care routine you can do as often as you want to make yourself feel loved and taken care of.

Great benefits you can get from Cold Bath

Bathing is know as an act of washing of ones body using water and soap. It’s safe to say that most of us do this at least once a day or if you live in a tropical country like Singapore, you’re most likely to do half-baths in the evening before going to bed.

By mindfully using the right water temperature, you can maximise the benefits you can get from doing something as simple as taking a bath. What am I talking about? COLD BATHS!

Cold baths are usually great to do every morning. This may sound contradicting as this is the main reason why water heater’s are so popularly sold, so you won’t get cold bathing in the morning, right?

Helps wake you up and alert

Well, our mind might think that way but that doesn’t mean we should forget the benefits what cold bath provides us and our body. Let’s start with the question, why most people take a bath in the morning?

Most will answer help wake us up, right? Then how could warm/hot baths wake help wake you up? Cold baths makes you somehow jump in the shower once the cold water hits your body and helps increase circulation that makes your body demand for more oxygen. This makes you breath deeper which without you knowing helps fight off fatigue.

Cool and intriguing, right? And that’s why you’ll feel more alive and ready to conquer your day.

Relieve itchy skin

If you have eczema like me or psoriasis, you’ll know that cold water is the go-to to relieve ourselves from frequent scratching. Cold water helps to avoid the natural oil our body creates to be stripped away from our skin that causes it to become flaky, hence, itchy.

Lessen soreness of body

This may not come a new thing to most of us as you might have seen in athletes most of the time putting ice whenever they get hurt from a game. This is also common DIY at home as we use ice packs to frozen meat for any body part we accidentally hurt to avoid it from getting swollen.

Weight loss

And if that doesn’t entice you still, then this might make you change your mind. Do you know according to some studies, cold bath can also help in weight loss. This is such a game changer!

Humans have two kinds of fatty tissues, which are brown and white fat. The Brown fat are the so-called, “good fat” that helps keep you warm when the temperature around you suddenly drops. White fat on the other hand are the fats we get from food. It’s the bad fat that’s stored in ones body that causes obesity.

Here’s how you lose weight, when you take a cold bath, your brown fat activates so your body would keep warm. This means that brown fat decreases and needs to convert body fat for it to increase again. And that’s how you start burning those calories by just cleaning your body. Amazing!

So, are you game for a challenge? Let’s start with one cold bath in a week, shall we! Do it and tag #themommywithagoalchallenge and #coldbathchallege in Instagram!
