Looking for extra cash o kaya naman you want to try and profit from your passion but still keeping your day job? Start your raketera life by taking notes of these tips:
Before starting any rakets, know what you want to do. There are a bunch of sidelines you can do from offering your creative services, maging virtual assistant, or even be the next entrepreneur. Just make sure that it’s in line with what your passionate with so it doesn’t feel like actual work
Okay, so now you know what you want to do. But how do you actually start? If you prefer to do freelance creative work, check out sites like Upwork, and Truelancer, or even join Facebook groups like Independent Creative & Advertising Professionals. Marami kang mahahanap dun like recording voiceovers, being a talent for a commercial, video editing, writing, and graphic design.
Kung gusto mo naman mag-work from home and show off your prowess in being organized, you can become a virtual assistant. Craigstlist and Kalibrr are just some of the sites you can use to find this type of work. Some people even live off this job para they can travel and work at the same time. Just make sure you have stable internet connection wherever you go so you don’t fail at your job.
If you want to try your hand at being an entrepreneur, you have to know first what to sell and who to sell it to. It’s important na kilala mo yung market mo para mag-fly talaga ang business. Tingnan mo kung ano yung in thing ngayon or even better, innovate something that you think people need and can’t live without!
Now if you’ve got no problem with your products, finding the perfect platform is easy: online! Hindi mo na kailangan magbayad ng rent sa mall and most shipping services are standardized if hindi siya shouldered by the buyer. Check out Instagram, Facebook Marketplace, or even use buy and sell apps like Carousell as your outlet.
Kung gusto mo naman maka-face to face ang customers mo because you find that your charisma helps move sales, kailangan mong makahanap ng perfect place to sell. Mall stalls are pretty pricey pero all year round maraming mainstay at nagsusulputang bazaars that you can join like Spectrum Fair, Legaspi and Salcedo Weekend Markets, and Escolta.
Whatever you decide to do, the most important thing is to look confident and presentable. You can’t just show up for your raket looking frazzled and all over the place. With HANA Soft and Smooth Shampoo, you can be sure to get beautiful and fragrant hair all-day that’s perfect for the go-getter girl like you! Good luck with the raket, girl!
