May 1 is a Legal Non-working Holiday but its Sunday

According to the Philippine List of Holidays, May 1 is a National Non-working Legal Holiday, sad thing it falls Sunday this year (sad face). Meaning to say, it is legally and normally no work day. How some of us wish it falls Friday or at least Monday.

For those of you who don't know what is the significance of this day this, I will be asking you back, why the heck you don't know it? It is already obvious on its name.

Ok, Labor day is the celebration of worker's hard work and labor. As Sophocles said "Without labor nothing prospers". Nobody prospers with lazy hands. So at least once in every year, we have to celebrate our being laborious.

The History? Ok, I am not a history savvy person, but what I knew it started in 1903 when Philippines is still under the American rule. And here is the full story of the Labor Day history.

160th Anniversary of First World's Fair: Not for Ninjas

Unlike Ninjas, Prince Albert took the initiative to show-off their country's and other countries' pride through the First World's Fair in 1851 held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, celebrating its 160th anniversary today, May 1, calling it "The Great Exhibition". It is an exhibit of the participating nations' manufactured goods and products, one way of telling the world they are great. Though Ninjas exhibit a great skill and talent, they never show it off for public eyes' satisfaction but instead it is for the satisfaction of the soul to keep.

This is a perspective of the soon to be built "The Crystal Palace"

Very Nostalgic Image of "The Crystal Palace". It seems I am looking in an old twenty-Philippine Peso bill.

Merceditas Gutierrez: Online Ninja

You might be wondering why online ninja? Doesn't she look online? I mean On the Line?

Oh well, she resigns. With an overwhelming 212-46 vote by the House of Representatives to impeach her, she definitely has nothing to do with it. I still hail her Ninja, at least she knows the meaning of the word "delekadesa".

Actually she went personally to PNoy 10 am this day(Friday) to submit her resignation letter, saying "Effective May 6, I am resigning my office. Even as a private citizen, I will still support the efforts of government in stamping out corruption". Ok whatever.

5 Outsourcing Mistakes You Should Never Follow

For all Online Ninjas out there, we all had outsourcing mistakes, I even outsource jobs and made mistakes. I am always asked: what do you think is the best way to outsource your work? I replied, then what could be the worst mistake you should never follow?

Ok, what is outsourcing then? For those who don’t know what is outsourcing is, it is simply giving the task to an outbound employee either local or abroad. You pay for the work done online, something like that.

As a Filipino online ninja worker, I am being outsourced and also I outsource for my personal use, like doing the Wordpress stuff and programming, fields which I don’t have the strength.

Ok, so what could be the worst thing an outsourcer does in outsourcing his task?

First stop:  Over expecting. Expecting somebody to do all the online chores for you is a very big outsourcing mistake. Why? If you are looking for a person who has a good command in written and oral English, who is good in back linking and link building, who is good in all programming languages and who is good in all aspects of office application, guess what? That person doesn’t exist, or if he exists, he is probably 1 out of a million online workers.

Second Stop: Task giving and not Job Giving. Trying to hire somebody, giving him loads of tasks and then let him work for you for a trail period without pay, isn’t a good idea at all. Why? It is like tricking the person and two nobody’s going to work for a task that will assure him no job at all. Give him a job then you give him tasks. You might give him a paid 1-week trial period. If everything goes well, go on and continue working together. If not, find another.

Third stop: Has no objective or goals. Giving him mere instructions is not effective. Give him or her idea of your desired results. Give him/her grounds or objectives or goals to meet, not just instructions to follow.

Fourth stop: Don’t communicate and don’t build relationship. Communication is very important between the two of you. Why? It gives the outsourcing employer a real time overview of what is happening to the tasks. And it gives the outsourced employee security and trust. Build relationship and you will surely reap its fruits.

Fifth Stop: Don’t Pay on time or don’t pay at all. The worst mistake of all is not paying. Just imagine yourself not getting paid for an effort? Or if you pay, it is always late or delayed; just explain why the pay is late. Just don’t make it a habit r else you will be left alone.

Follow these 5 simple outsourcing mistakes and you will surely fail. These are just 5 simple steps for you to follow if you want to fail in your outsourcing needs. Just a reminder, never follow them.

7 Reasons Why I Would Not Work on Traditional Hands-On Job

A lot of people are asking me “why don’t you get traditional hands on job?” and I responded “Why would I?” Being a home-based worker has its disadvantages too, but its advantages outweigh its disadvantages.

First stop: You don’t have to worry about what to wear. Sure thing about online working, I don’t have to make sure my uniform is wrinkle free. I just have to make sure my PC is dust-free.

Second stop: You don’t have to worry about the allowance. That’s the good thing about being at home, since I am working at home, no need for me to allocate something for my allowance.

Third stop: You don’t have to worry what to ride. I live in a remote area, where the only way for you to reach the highway is a single-type motorcycle. What if it rains? Or What if it is raining? What if it is too sunny or gloomy? I don’t have to get pissed with the driver and my co-passengers.

Fourth stop: You don’t have to worry about getting late. As an online worker, my daily routines is wake up, take a shower, and eat, then go in front of my computer and work. If I want to take a break, I can go to my backyard for a while and breathe some fresh air.

Firth stop: You get pay way higher with a little effort compared to tradition hands on job. Since the employers are from abroad, they get to pay you in dollars, which is about 42 times higher than our Peso.

Sixth Stop: You stay at the comfort and safety of your own home. You don’t have to worry about snatchers and getting bumped by a car. You are safe and sound in your own home that’s for sure.

Seventh and the most important stop: you spend more time with your family. Since I stay at home a lot, I get to spend my time to my family instead of spending my tie waiting for a bus ride or eating at the canteen. I get to spend with my family.

Power Interruption: Guilty for Killing Online Worker's Job

Power interruptions are so much killing the online business of our fellow online ninjas and workers. Summer temperature affected the performance of power utility companies that is the reason of frequent power losses. 

You might be asking why summer heat affects the performance of said companies.

The explanation for that is very simple. When you are in heat what will you do? You need something cold right? Where could you find something cold then? Ice? Water? Ice cream? Ok my explanation is non sense.

First stop: Normally, generators producing power heats up. Why? because of friction, since it is spinning between magnets.

Second stop: Now, temperature arises when the internal and external heat combines. That is the produced heat by the generators and the environmental heat produced by the summer heat. 

Third stop: coolants for generators can no longer stop the heat.

Fourth stop: so the solution? Schedule the utility of the said generators. Example, instead of turning all the generators 1, 2, 3 to 10. They will just turn the generators from 1 to 5, then wait for a couple of hours maybe 10 hours to turn generators 6 to 10.

Fifth stop: the result? Scheduled power interruption.

These power interruptions is killing online businesses. Just imagine 10 hours of no power means 10 hours of no works. Not unless if you are an affiliate marketer, which may give you residual income online even though you are sleeping. But if you are a mere worker or employee, it would surely kill your job eventually. So let your boss know about our problems about power interruptions, or else you will be kicked.

Fiverr Fever: 10 Tips on How to Drive Fiverr Buyers in your Gig

From my previous blog about my hyped 16$ in less than an hour experience with Fiverr, I gave you an overview of what Fiverr is and now I will give you simple but sure tips to drive buyers in your gig. But first you have to know that being in to Fiverr is like also selling. You are the Seller and the clients are the Buyers. Unlike job posting sites, the clients or employers are the ones posting their needs. But in Fiverr, the ones posting are the sellers or the employers with the services and products they could offer for 5$.

Can we go to the tips now? Ok

First stop, I will ask you “Have you made an account already?” If you do, let us proceed to the second stop. If you haven’t made and account yet, well get your ass working with it. Go to their site and return here. Just type in your browser’s search bar and then register.

Second stop, create a catchy line or phrase. You can base your gigs on buyer's suggested or requested gigs found on the right side of the page. As you can see, when you are in Fiverr. Each gig starts with “I will” and ends with “for 5$” which means, in between those phrases, you will insert your catchy gig. Of course, you should not put a catchy title line that is too good to be true just to drive buyers. Never offer what you can’t deliver, that is the rule of the thumb, or else they will leave a negatve remark on your review page. And that will lead me to the…

Third stop, which is having a good reputation. Make sure you deliver your work with quality standards. Make your buyers happy, and when they are happy, encourage them to leave a rating and a comment to your review page. Why? Because other buyers will tend to buy gigs with good reviews on it and with good rating. So always make your buyers happy and ask them to leave a comment I got 3 gigs so far, and got 10 out of 10 positive reviews
Fourth stop is to build a relationship with your buyers. Rate them if you want. You see, you are in fiverr on the sole purpose of earning money, but how will you earn money if you don’t have repeat orders or buyers. Build a relationship with your buyers and they will surely recommend your gig to other buyers too.

comments under lamchops9's gig (a featured gig)

Fifth Stop, just make everything clear, from the title to the description and instructions. This will save time and effort.

Sixth,  I put 4 or 5 days as my maximum date of delivery for simple tasks. Why 4 or 5 days? To give me an allowance just instead fiverr communication broke or I slept away or any other reason. Because when you submit a finished task past your estimated time of delivery, the buyer will have the full option to cancel it and it is such a waste of time.

Seventh, you might be wondering with the “full option to cancel the order” don’t buyers have that option from the start? NO, they don’t have that option. Once an order is placed for your gig and delivered it on time or faster, and even the buyer hated your work so much, they have no option but to accept it. Only that, they will surely give you a rotten tomato review. That is why on the third stop, I discussed how important delivering a good quality work.

Eight stop, if you are not sure with your buyers order, don’t be shy to ask him about it. Discuss with him what he wants and how he wants it. If you still don’t agree with what he is trying to make you do, try asking him to mutually cancel the order. You can find the MUTUAL CANCELLATION BUTTON under “got problems” tab. Never deliver a work that is uncertain. It will have a big impact on the quality

Ninth stop; upload an image that will represent what you are offering. Make it as clear as possible. The description page only gives you 450 characters for you to type in so most definitely; you cannot express everything you want to say. Instead, put it in pictures. Pictures express a thousand words so make use of its full potential.

Tenth stop, honestly, I haven’t uploaded a video on my gig yet. But if you have the guts to make a video of yourself to promote you gig, do make it. It will increase your traffic rate. Almost all the featured gigs have videos attached on it marketing their gig. So make one.

If you still don't get it, move your butt and click the "HOW DOES IT WORK" button on their home page.

4 R's to overcome your fear of failure

"4 R's to overcome your fear of failure" was the title of the post my friend posted on her wall as I am scanning my Facebook News feed:

1. REMEMBER that everyone fails.
-Proverbs 24:16

2. REALIZE that failure is not final.

4. REPLACE your fear w/ faith to God.
-Philippians 4:13

Let Not Failures Define You
Proverbs 24:16 For a righteous man falls seven times

What makes failure and success the same?
they are both not permanent, you have to realize that...

Have Faith always
remember that stars shines the brightest during the darkest hour, have faith

As an online Ninja I always feared to go one step higher than what I knew I am capable of. Why not replace that fear with faith?

16$ Hyped Experience with Fiverr in Less than an Hour

I am a member of Fiverr for just like less than 3 weeks but I had been getting hyped already because of my positive experiences and I just made 16$ in less than an hour. For those who don’t know Fiverr, well I will ask you why don’t you know it? Gosh!

check it out here: (not a referral link, ok)

First stop, Fiverr is a site that lets you sell something or anything for 5$ that is why it is called Fiverr. You can sell anything you can from stuffs you think is val
ued 5$ to services that is worth 5$.

Second stop, Yes, I am an avid seller there and I sell services for 5$.

So what are you selling specifically?

Third Stop, I sell Facebook profile banners. Not just ordinary banners, but they are hand-made creatively picked banners.

Fourth stop, why I wrote this blog? I am so hyped with my buyers comments on my finished products. They just love my speed and how I made their Facebook pages look more professional and eye-catching not mentioning that I earned 16$ in less than an hour.

Fifth stop, was introduced to me by a friend, he said he earned 4$ there just byselling a gig. What’s a gig? And why 4$, since you said everything sold is 5$? Ok, Ok, A gig is the term they used to something being sold there. And every sold gig, fiverr will take 1$ from your revenue that serves as a tax (it is not actually a tax, it’s like a commission from their part).

Sixth stop, if you are an online ninja or worker trying to find something extra money online, please do take away of those PTC sites. It just isn’t worth your time. I tried a lot of PTC’s and took me 3 months before I earn my first 10$, trust me, it’s a big shit waste of time.

Easter Sunday Marks New Breed of Online Ninjas

First Stop, it’s Easter Sunday so I would like to greet all Christian online ninjas a happy day of resurrection. Easter symbolizes Christ’s resurrection from the dead, and marked the new beginning of mankind’s life.

Second stop, I was opening skimming on my Facebook page when I came across with a photo album of a child that seemed to be doing something in a laptop.

Third stop, I said to myself “Will this be the future of newly born kids today? A new breed of online ninjas?”. Below is the image of the baby I saw today with a laptop.

This image was posted on this album, and for more images of this cute little baby ninja, you may find it here.

Fourth and Last stop, today is a very important day. No bunny costumes or egg hunting activities can replace the day’s meaning. A simple reflection for you: John 3:16 “Because God loved the world so much, that He is willing to give away His only son, so that who may believe in Him shall not suffer but instead have an everlasting life”. Happy Easter Sunday everyone!!!

0.5$ to 1$ per Article Compensation for Article Writers

If you think 0.5$ or 1$ for a single 500-word article is already enough to compensate article writers, well think again. Try writing a quality, SEO optimized, emotionally engaging 500-word article and tell me if you are cool being paid with 0.5$ to 1$ per accomplished work. I just recently saw a job post in an online outsourcing site (will not be mentioned) looking for article writers in the Philippines and is willing to pay 4$ an hour. I said to myself, 4$ an hour is a great compensation for starters, but here’s the catch, you have to write 5 to 6 SEO quality 500-word articles in an hour for you to be paid 4$ in that said hour. Can you imagine yourself writing 5 to 6 SEO Optimized, 100% original and High quality articles in an hour(unless you are using article spinners with super low quality, non-sense articles)? Doing the Math (I will do it for you, I know some of you hates Math) that would be 0.67$ to 0.8$ an article or that is equivalent to 32$ in a day’s work. 32-dollar-a-day work? That’s not bad, that’s great! But then again, before you will be paid with 32$ you have to deliver 40 articles in that same day for 8 hours.

Oh c’mon why are you bugging yourself, we need money, and any amount will do even for a dollar an hour. Again will stress out the amount of work and effort versus the compensation is not balanced. I wrote this to express three things:

First: Writing an article is not an easy task. You need to be very creative and takes years of practice to master a good command in vocabulary, grammar and spelling. Even professional high-paid editors also commit mistakes, just compare ourselves. If you (addressing to outsourcing employers and clients) are looking for an ace writer who can deliver a high quality, 100% original and SEO optimized articles then pay them fairly. Pay them bad, and you will reap what you deserve.

Second: Articles or contents can be compared to the main course dish in a fine dining setting. It is the reason why search engines index your site, the reason why visitors go to your site giving volumes of traffic that will eventually be converted into leads and from leads into customers and customers into profit. In short, articles (quality or not) are your source of a long-term residual income as long as you keep your site up and running. So it is only fair enough to pay your writers well since you(referring to outsourcing employers) will having the full rights of the articles created, and you will eventually receive residual and even exponential income out from it.

Lastly, In conclusion, Article writers in the Philippines seemed to be so underpaid. The average rate in outsourcing sites for article writers ranges between 1$ to 2.5$ depending on the length. I am not against per result or per article basis of payment; it is just that, it is way too degrading especially for ace writers who can produce top quality articles. I just can’t imagine people pays 0.5$ per 500-word or more article and expects so much from it.

And because of stiff competition and unemployment, even ace article writers are forced to accept offers for such amount. Writing with twisted fingers is such an agony for writers like me, good thing I am compensated well, but how about those talented newbies? The solution for such a pain you ask? Well online ninja’s don’t do these and should not be doing these, continue reading here.

Reasons Why Filipino Online Workers Look for more than One Employer

Outbound outsourcing employers keep wondering why online Filipino workers engage in having multiple employers. I will lay down to you why some online Filipino employees have more than one employer:

First: Financial Security. Let us face it, the string that holds both of you working together is TRUST and it is a very important thing when working online. Pinoy online workers tend to look for another employer in the fear of losing a job. Reasons like scamming employers where they get no pay after the month’s work could be the worst thing could happen to a worker. So in order to have a security financially, looking for another job or employer is the best thing to do. Here’s the Ninja advice, talk to them personally. Let them meet former employees that you had or let them read feedbacks or reviews about you (if available) for you to gain respect from your employees. Another Ninja Tip, try posting a video blog of yourself for your employees to know that you are real and not a scammer.

Second. Inadequate Compensation. You might not be giving the right price for your employers, so they try to look for another job or employer to satisfy their needs. 200-250$ of income every month with 40 hours per week requirement could be enough for a while but make it increasing. Ninja, try to give them a salary increase either every month or every week (if a certain production is highly satisfied or surpassed). That could give them more motivation to work more and only for you.

Third. Delayed Salary. We work because of the pay and not for the delay. Workers could understand delay, but never make it a hobby to delay ones or else they will find another employer or worse leave you. Here’s the Ninja tip, make your salary bi-monthly or weekly(for newly hired), then eventually, you may agree to make it bi-monthly(to reduce money-transfer cost). Monthly Compensation is less motivating for online workers especially if they are newly hired.

Fourth. Too Demanding or Too Lenient. If you are too demanding or too lenient, the tendency for the employee is to look for another employer to quench their need. If you are too demanding, they will look for a less demanding employer. If you are too lenient, they will tend to look for more adventurous employers.

Fifth. Poor Relationship. This could be the most important among the five reasons. If you see your employees as robots, they will then see you as a mere battery. Employees also have emotions and feelings that need to be fed up. If you are an employee with a good reputation and giving your employees the right compensation timely but without a good working relationship with your employees, they would still look for another job. You need to start building relationship, treat them as friends and as your partners in your business not just mere employees.

These are just five simple but lethal reasons for your business to fail because employees tend to leave you or lack focus on your tasks due to multiple employers. Learn how to turn things around and be a ninja employer.

5 Fast and Effective Re-Writing Methods

In order for your page content not to be indexed as plagiarized or “copy-pasted” here are the 5 simple and effective ways on how to re-write an article fast and easy:

1. Keep the meaning of your text very close to the original article. It is very necessary to stick to the idea of the original content. Re-writing an article can also be compared to as being trapped in a quick-sand. Try to bear with it instead of fighting against it and your life will be spared. Try not to add your own idea so that you will not be trapped in the quick sand of thoughts.

2. Make it Less wordy. (Avoid using "flowery” words). Try to convey your ideas straight forwardly. Adding flowery words to make your content look long is not helpful. Try to remember KISS, Keep It Short and Simple.

3. Avoid unusual expressions. Using idiomatic expressions without explaining why you used that expression in your content or article will not help your readers. You will just leave them blank. Use words and expressions that are very reader-friendly and can be easily understood. Using the equivalent synonym of the word from the original article will not also help you if it doesn’t fit in the context of the sentence.

4. The number of words should be close to the original content. It could be 10-15% more but no need to fill your article with "filler" sentences. This is simply a reminder of the tip/guideline number 2.

5. Keep keyword density to 2-3%. Keyword density is the ratio of a keyword over the total number of words in the article. It is the percent count of how many times a keyword has occurred in the entire content. Say for example you have a 500-word article and in the entire article, the keyword phrase ‘eating disorder’ was mentioned 10 times. To get the keyword density, it would be 10(number of keyword occurrences) divided by 500(total number of words) then multiply the quotient by 100(to get the percentage) so that is 2%. Download and use \Dupefree Pro to immediately check keyword density. It also compare the two articles for duplication and plagiarism. A video tutorial on how to re-write an article can be seen here.

You might have heard also about article or word spinning. We will discuss “Article Spinner: To Use or Not to Use?” which will give you a clear overview of what is article/word spinning and why should or should not use it.

What is the significance of re-writing an article?

We will be giving you 3 reasons how significant article re-writing is and why it is important to do it correctly.

1. Creation of a New Content for Article Directories. When you are on to article marketing, one of the best ways to drive traffic to your site is to submit articles in article directories like Ezine, Hubpages, Goarticles, eHow and many more. But Google is inspecting the contents submitted for plagiarism or duplication. In order to avoid being indexed by Google as “irrelevant”, “duplicate”, “copy-cat”, “second-rate” it is best to re-write the original article that you posted on your site and submit it to different article directories. Try at

least two revisions of the article then submit it all over various directories.

2. Time Saver. Indeed, copy-pasting other people’s work saves time but it is totally a big sin, both in the eyes of man and God. If you don’t know it, it is called Plagiarism. You may re-write other people’s work. How is it better than copy-pasting? You a

re not copying verbatim but you are copying thought by thought. It is considered as a way of appreciating others’ work.

3. Production of a High Quality Content. Re-writing two or more articles and combining them to make a one whole new article could lead to a highly informative. Two heads is better than one right? So a combination of more than two articles

could also mean merging of various thoughts into one.

These are just 3 simple reasons why you should re-write articles. Just a thought, re-writing is not a form of Plagiarism. It is simply referring to an original article to create a new content while preserving the idea. Reminder, make sure that when re-writing an article, you should be very careful not to copy-paste even just a single sentence. Even a single sentence can be detected by anti-plagiarism or plagiarism-detecting software and web services like Copyscape.

Simple yet Effective Reward Methods to Motivate Online Workers

Motivating an ace home-based worker can be very challenging to ensure is or her loyalty and trust for you. Unlike Office workers, online workers are not monitored for almost 8 hours of work a day. You only get to talk to them at the end of the work hour virtually. Take note, both of you are only communicating virtually which means, if you had read the article “5 Reward Methods Effective to Motivate Employees without any Salary Increase”, you can surely not use all of the five reward methods since it is designed for face-to-face working environment.

In motivating your online workers, you should try to classify your employees to three divisions:

1. Creative Workers. They are the workers that use creative thinking when doing their job.

2. Administrative Workers. They are the ones that use technical skills and fulfill administrative tasks.

3. Managerial Workers. They are the ones that use leadership and managerial skills most of the time in their job.

After identifying the classification of your employees, you can now identify which reward method is best for those groups of people to effectively reward them. You might not device the 5 most common effective ways of rewarding employees, but you can definitely follow the following reward methods to motivate online workers.

For Creative Workers:

Quality Time

Quality time could be one of the best rewards you can give to creative thinker. Quality time like additional paid vacation days or longer holiday breaks is some examples of quality time reward. In Japan, especially Canon Company, they give their employees shorter daily work hours, instead of 12 hours they lower it down to 8 hours for their employees to render more time for their family.

Appreciative feedbacks

A daily appreciative feedback is very essential in motivating creative thinkers. Constructive criticisms are also considered appreciative feedback when delivered on the right manner and time. It is very important that the creativity of the person is always fed by feedbacks from you. In this way, they will never run out of ideas and thoughts and it will also serve as a spring board of growth.

For Administrative Workers:

Directly Proportional Compensation

Administrative workers are best motivated with salaries that increase in proportion to their efforts. The harder, the longer, the more complex the higher a task should be paid. But the best way to do this is to have a periodical salary increase. Say for example, you may agree to have a salary increase every month and a sudden increase when the result expectation is doubled. That is how administrative workers are motivated aside from daily appreciative feedbacks.

For Managerial Workers:

Combinatorial Approach

A combination of directly proportional income and quality work time-space environment is best for employees with such responsibility. Since they possess leadership skill, it is also best to give a combination of two reward types. Google, Facebook and other large companies implement this type of reward for their employees to keep them motivated and maintain a high quality results and production.

Learning person’s psychological anatomy is very essential especially when you are handling them. Since we are talking about online workers, try learning more about them here.
