Boost your earnings online!

Nowadays, traveling to the office to clock in eight hours of work just isn’t ideal anymore. Precious time that should be spent with loved ones is wasted being stuck in traffic during commute.

This is why more and more Filipinos are venturing into online freelancing. Aside from freedom from the grueling commute, freelancing also offers opportunities to earn more while getting control of your time. But, how do you really standout from others? Here are some tips to help you win more e-gigs.

1. Update your profile constantly. Your profile page is your resume. Make sure to put your best foot forward. Properly list your credentials, education background and updated work experience. Also, take time to curate your work for the portfolio section.
2. Bid for projects that suit your skills and interest. Take advantage of your work experience and skills. Whether you are into writing, graphic designing, programming, or working as a virtual assistant, make sure that you put the relevant details of your past jobs to show that you are the best for the project.
“Before submitting a bid, freelancers should carefully read the project description. That way you can properly assess the timeline and provide details that are relevant to the projects. Don’t send generic bids because employers are more impressed with freelancers who prove they clearly understood what the employer wants out of the project,” said Monica Martinez of Freelancer.com.
3. Communicate with your client and make sure everything's clear. Once you get the job, make sure that you are on the same page with your client. Update your client regularly and be disciplined with your time to meet the deadlines. In this way, you will earn good reviews that will be instrumental for you to get more projects in the future.
4. Join freelancer groups and online communities. There are many other useful tips you can get by just joining freelancer groups and online communities. You can also learn from experts like Genesis Reonico, the founder of onlinejobslifestyle.com, a website that helps people to get started on freelancing.
Genesis has been spreading the word about freelancing in the country for years now. “My primary motivation in pushing online work and digital career here in the country is to let others have the opportunity to also experience what I had experienced as an online worker; the flexibility of time, being location independent to do the work and the amount of money you can possibly earn,” he shared.
5. Link your Paypal account to an e-money account that doesn’t charge withdrawal fees. Powered by UnionBank, EON doesn’t charge anything on top of the minimal fees charged by Paypal. To link EON to your PayPal account, enter Union Bank of the Philippines as your bank, enter 010419995 as the bank code and your EON Account number.

You can easily grab an EON Starter Kit at the counter in 7-Eleven stores or have it delivered in packs of 2s to 5s through Lazada. But before you do, check out EON's many cool innovations on www.eonbankph.com, Facebook /eonbankph, or Twitter @eonbankph.

“UnionBank’s EON has been a part of [the lives of] many online freelancers for years now. With the release of the new EON and the features it has to offer, using EON will be a much more enjoyable way of doing financial transactions,” said Genesis.

Remember that just like traditional jobs, online freelancing requires focus, professionalism, and efficient time management. You can contact Monica at monica@freelancer.com and Genesis at connect@coachgen.com for more tips on getting more projects online.

8List.Ph presents the return of well-loved radio dj for Str8 Up with Delamar


8List.Ph presents the return of Delamar, well-loved radio jock stars in her own online talk show & live chat.

Delamar Arias, well-loved radio dj is back for Str8 Up with Delamar, an online talk show produced by award-winning website, the 8list.ph. 

8List is a dynamic website known for making lists that resonate with Filipino millennials. With a pulse on the Pinoy, it has consistently published content that is always informative, enlightening, yet entertaining. The website known for viral stories reached out to Delamar, coaxing her out of retirement because she is undoubtedly someone Filipinos listen to and admire.

Str8 Up with Delamar is her first solo program after she bid goodbye to a radio career that spanned more than 2 decades. She was a mainstay for the award-winning radio show The Morning Rush on RX93.1. Although the decision was not easy, the needs of her growing family came first.

As a wife to BPO executive Tyler Ashby and a mother to two beautiful boys and a new-born baby daughter, Delamar says, “I wanted to spend more time with my family, especially my three children who need attention from their mom at this early stage in their lives.” 

But after a year as a stay at home mom, she felt that she still had a lot of things to say. She knew that with her most important role now as a mom, her world had changed, and figured she needed a different platform to have a different kind of conversation with the public. “Everyone’s on the internet now and it’s such a great place to engage with people. Here, I could collaborate with a team and create content that can really open people’s minds. Or at least entertain them.” Whatever the conversation is about, she promises the show will always present something new or different. 

Str8 Up provides Delamar a digital platform to tell her experiences and express her unique opinions to educate in a clear and fun way. With her different perspective on relevant topics ranging from politics, relationships, and everything in between, which she will be delivering straight up.

With Delamar, Str8 Up aims to be a voice of discovery, striving to talk about important issues both old and new with well-thought-out arguments backed by research -- a refreshing break from the usual fare online.

The first of the series to be aired will be all about comfort zones which Delamar is all too familiar with. Transitioning from radio to video is not an easy feat but this is where Delamar shares how she grew in doing so. She also encourages other people to do the same -- get out of their comfort zones and learn something new, every week by watching her show on the 8list Facebook page, and then participating in a Live Chat right after the video. 

Like the 8list Facebook page so you can watch Str8 Up every Wednesday at 12 noon beginning June 21 and catch Delamar on her live FB video chat following every episode. Check out Str8 Up teasers on the official Facebook page of 8List for updates.

Experienced Joy Ride! by NutriAsia food truck in Luneta! NutriAsia offers new Filipino flavors on the road

In light of the celebration of the recent Philippines Independence Day , NutriAsia brings to us Joy Ride! NutriAsia's food truck in Luneta, eager to have a taste of both traditional and new Filipino comfort food made with quality products of NutriAsia.

According to Dang de Leon, corporate marketing consultant at Nutri-Asia Inc., the food truck goes around the metro serving reimagined local food fare.



“We tweak classic Pinoy comfort food to make the taste more appealing to millennials,” she explains, saying that the brand has partnered with GalaStars Culinary, which is headed by renowned chef Ernest Reynoso Gala, “because they know what young people want.”

Chef Gala is very excited about collaborating with NutriAsia. He points out, “They have so many wonderful products and as a chef, I have a lot of fun being creative with the recipes I am developing.”

The chef appreciates the fact that the leading condiments brand in the Philippines offers well-known products like Datu Puti and Mang Tomas, and that its excellent pre-mixes make cooking a lot easier, especially for harried homemakers.


The Joy Ride! by NutriAsia’s bill of fare offers meals like Adoburrito, with a choice of Spicy Adobo and Humba Adobo, a dish popular in the Visayas. The Adoburrito wrap is a combination of the popular adobo and burrito, created with highly mobile young professionals in mind. 

Acknowledging that each and every region in the country has its own version of adobo, NutriAsia, de Leon avers, puts their Datu Puti adobo series to maximum use. 

Other food choices at Joy Ride!, de Leon discloses, are based on crowd favorites, usually a combination of dishes that are well-liked in the metro as well as in the provinces.


De Leon recommends the Pinoy Chicken Slider served with pan de sal and the Siga Bagnet Wrap, which is prepared using Mang Tomas Siga, a spicy version of the regular Mang Tomas sauce. It also has Datu Puti vinegar and cucumber to give it a kick.

Meantime, the crowd favorite, Skinny Chix, is street food made crunchier and more flavorful by using NutriAsia’s recently launched, first-in-the-market Golden Fiesta Big Crunch Fry and Shake, a breading mix in smoked barbeque, cheese, and sour cream variants. 

On the other hand, Chef Gala reveals that food preparation is done in GalaStars Culinary—from weighing and chopping to marinating, etc.—then brought into the food truck. “We cook everything on-site so that the food is fresh when served.” 

Chef Gala has nothing but compliments for NutriAsia’s products. “When one has excellent condiments to work with, it is easy to adjust the taste and formulate the recipes. Cooking becomes ‘masarap masaya’.”



Affordable, prices at Joy Ride! range from P40 to P80. The brand makes their offerings as affordable as they can because they want everyone to have a taste of their food creations. The serving portions are likewise larger than average, perfect for sharing. 



Apart from making condiments and sauces, NutriAsia, de Leon reveals, has ventured into beverages. “We have pick-me-ups in mangosteen, guyabano, kamias, dalandan and kalamansi. These are locally sourced Pinoy fruits that we have bottled into natural juices.” 


Watch for the Joy Ride! by NutriAsia, which started rolling out in Metro Manila this month, serving people at food parks, employees of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies, and customers at bazaars, events, and universities.

Director, Producer , Actor Albert Martinez finds a deeper purpose being a supportive dad and family man


Albert Martinez with daughter Alissa and son Alfonso
Undeniably a formidable actor with immense talent, Albert Martinez,   even with the many awards and critical acclaim under his belt, Albert’s greatest trophies –his most precious rewards –are truly his kids: Alyanna, stylist and fashionista; Alissa, online entrepreneur and foodie; and Alfonso, certified car nut and restaurateur. 

“From a happy-go-lucky lifestyle, I became more responsible. Being a father really gives you a more purposeful way of looking at life, and makes you more success-driven in order to provide a better future for your family,” as Albert is first to admit how fatherhood completely changed his life and his outlook. 

The untimely passing of his loving wife Liezl two years ago dealt a painful blow to family. While the void will forever be felt, Albert is grateful that Liezl did an excellent job in laying a strong foundation for their kids as they were growing up. “They’re all very focused and grounded,” he beams with pride.

And indeed, the Martinez brood is a picture of a contented, tight-knit family that is supportive of each other’s diverse interests and respective of each other’s personalities, where they make time to bond – to live deeper — just like friends. And what better symbol of this filial bond than the gift of a TechnoMarine watch for dad Albert on father’s day.

“My dad and I have a lot of things in common,” shares eldest child Alyanna. “We love traveling, we love the outdoors, and we’re both moody at times,” she confesses. And while Alyanna was steadily making a name for herself in the world of fashion, Albert was always around to lend his support, attending shows and launches even with his hectic schedule. He even took a break from the hit series Ang Probinsyano just to be with Alyanna on her winter wedding in the US last year.

For Alissa, on the other hand, her being a foodie and love for animals are the ties that bind her close to her dad. Apart from helping set-up her online business PoppyLuca, an online pet accessories store, they can often be found in the kitchen together trying out new recipes. “My dad and I love to cook and we both love to eat!” she shares with a laugh.

And then, of course, there’s Alfonso, the unico hijo and bunso, whose love for cars and karting is something he picked-up from his dad. “My dad loves tinkering with cars during his free time,” he relates. Alfonso recalls fondly how he and his dad would join car clubs and go to car shows. “It’s really his passion aside from acting, and a hobby that I enjoy myself!”

Another thing that runs common among the Martinezes is their love for animals. They currently have seven dogs and translated this passion into a thriving family business: Ask a Vet.

With all these blessings and more, Albert Martinez is no doubt the perfect embodiment of TechnoMarine’s Live Deeper spirit. “For me, living deeper is all about knowing yourself more, being yourself, and enjoying life to the fullest!” 

Albert wears the new TM-616002 from the UF6 line, the premium watch collection from TechnoMarine. TechnoMarine is available in Trinoma, Greenbelt 3, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, SM City Cebu, Robinson’s Galleria, Robinson’s Magnolia, Shangri-La Plaza and all My Diamond boutiques nationwide.
