Filipina Baby is 7th Billion Inhabitant

with one comment

Newly-born baby girl Danica Camacho is the world’s symbolic seven billionth baby who was born at Fabella Maternity hospital in Manila, Philippines today, Monday October 31, 2011. India also greeted its version of the 7 billionth person on earth.

It took only a dozen years to make the leap from 6 billion. And according to the same projections found in this year’s State of the World Population report from the UNFPA, the population will top 9 million by 2050 and 10 billion by the end of this century.

Total population is still climbing, but the rate of growth peaked in the 1960s at about 2 percent. It has steadily declined since then, although it remains well above replacement level in places like sub-Saharan Africa, where it still tops 2 percent.

leave a comment »

Capitol building of Leyte province

President Benigno S. Aquino III awarded Leyte as the most business-friendly LGU (local government unit) or province in the Philippines during an award ceremony held at the Manila Hotel Thursday evening. The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) also awarded the province a Hall of Fame award for consistently winning the award for the third time.

Governor Carlos Jericho L. Petilla personally accepted the award. He was accompanied by Vice Governor Mimyet Bagulaya and the members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Leyte, and several department heads, in a display of unity and force.

PCCI cited the Leyte’s effort to prepare the province as an IT destination through Leyte ICT Park and the launching of the Technology Business Incubator (TBI) that provides initial assistance to starting entrepreneurs in the IT field. The ICT Park has been recognized by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).

The Best Kind of Business in the Philippines is in Prepaid Load

with 6 comments

UPDATE: The prepaid load business is now inoperable.

In replacement, I would like to offer you something else, which is VOICEBLAST.

What is “VoiceBlast?” Do you know what TEXT BLAST is?

Well, instead of text blasting people to death and yet not knowing if they received the message, deleted it, may be interested in it but decline to text back, or simply the number is already dead or terminated, VoiceBlast is the better alternative. With VoiceBlast, you get 100% statistics on all numbers called so you’ll know what the outcome or disposition per number. Plus, voice is definitely 100x better than text.

Read more about VoiceBlast by clicking this line.

We also have a Referral Partner Program where you can get paid for referring SMEs, large companies and other organizations every minute they use the VoiceBlast service. E-mail me at raffy@goautodial.com if you’re interested it this.

—–oOo—–

It’s an obvious fact that more than 90 percent of the mobile phone market in the Philippines happen to be prepaid. It’s a market where almost a billion text messages (technically called SMS or small message system) is sent out every day. Yes, you read it right – one billion text messages a day! That’s why this huge market lives and breathes on text messaging promotions like unlimited text messaging between like telecom providers per day, per week or per month. Sometimes, that includes sending text messages to other telecom networks. For voice calls, there are also unlimited calls within the same telecom network or even discounted calls abroad.

Now, what if you can use prepaid load as an entrepreneurial business for yourself? “Why?” you’d say since not only the telecom companies are doing that for themselves, there have been one or two doing it through a network marketing model. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford the joining fee or start-up cost. Juan dela Cruz (a.k.a. John Averageman) and his meager salary can’t invest thousands of Pesos to join this direct selling business.

Enter “KikoLoad,” today’s cheapest and easiest way to start a prepaid load business in the Philippines by paying a registration fee of not thousands of Pesos but only 500 Pesos! “What’s the catch?” Actually, nothing. In fact, what Mobile Ventures did more was to give half the amount back as a starting credit to the new member of KikoLoad. So, out of the 500 Pesos you paid for joining, you get back 250 Pesos as your initial KikoLoad so you can start your business instantly. On top of that, they’re also giving away 50 Pesos as a recruitment incentive to the member (that’s you) for every person who joins KikoLoad as part of your network. And that’s not all – every new recruit is eligible to receive a 20,000 Pesos life insurance coverage for FREE! That’s probably the best incentive to join a direct selling business using the most popular product in the Philippines.

“Why the heck should I join this kind of business?”

Let me repeat what I wrote above: more than 90 percent of the mobile phone market in the Philippines are prepaid phones. There are more than enough relatives, neighbors, office colleagues, professional acquaintance, real friends and Facebook friends for you to earn a lot of money by selling prepaid load and recruiting others to sell as well.

If you see how those prepaid load sellers in flea markets and the malls use three phones for each telecom network provider, KikoLoad simplified it into just one mobile phone, regardless of the telecom network provider or SIM card you are using. You say you use a Globe Handyphone SIM card owner? Sell and transfer your KikoLoad credits to a Smart or Sun user. “Now, how do you do that?” To simplify my answer, don’t even worry about it. It’s KikoLoad’s job to give you that convenience. Just focus on selling and recruiting, and KikoLoad does the rest of the technical stuff for you.

People are now flocking to join KikoLoad!

Here’s another benefit for the would-be entrepreneur: prepaid load is a product that does not need inventory management and warehousing. This means no need for any bookkeeping to tag assets, depreciation, obsolescence, spoilage, theft, bond payments or deposits, and a whole kaboodle of accounting work that drives many entrepreneurs nuts. Sell KikoLoad, get the cash from your customer, type a command on your mobile phone, and your customer’s phone is credited with the new prepaid load you just transfered.

In fact, the method by which you earn selling (or transferring) prepaid load to another person is something like instant rebate: when you sell 100 Pesos to your friend, only 90 Pesos is actually deducted from your KikoLoad. Repeat this cycle and increase the amount of sales, and you get the drift of the business. No need to travel the distance to get a check payment. No need to wait in line to en cash the check in a bank far away from where you live. The instant rebate means instant revenue or on-the-spot earning.

However, everything I just mentioned above is selling. What about recruiting people to join KikoLoad and being tagged under your network, also called in network marketing or direct selling parlance “your downline?Every recruit you bring in gives you an instant rebate of 50 Pesos, a small token of appreciation for the effort of convincing that person to join the business under your network. Once your direct recruit starts buying more KikoLoad credits to sell, you instantly earn 0.5 percent. But they don’t stop there. When your direct recruit (let’s label this recruit your “Level 1” or L1) starts building his or her own network of recruits (let’s call this network your “Level 2” or L1), and those recruits also starts buying KikoLoad credits to sell, you also earn 0.5 percent from them. In summary, you earn 0.5 percent from each of your L1 and L2 network members. How many you recruit directly and how many your recruits recruit directly, too, including how much KikoLoad they buy to sell, equals your instant rebate or your instant earning.

This is just the tip of the iceberg because all I’ve been writing about is prepaid load or credits. You can also sell life insurance and a host of other products that’s in the pipeline which, again, needs no inventory management and warehousing. As a direct selling company, there are performance incentives and promotions, and reward and recognition for top performers. It’s a whole new way of doing business using one the most popular product in the Philippines today – prepaid load.

Think about it! If you recruit someone, you may not even have to push your recruits to sell to earn a percentage of their sales. Almost everyone needs prepaid load. It’s as if you just need to sit pretty on your comfy couch and watch the Pesos come in. However, do you think people won’t bother you to sell them prepaid load? They will! Do you want to earn more? Think about a girl named RITA. “Huh?” Yes, RITA. Her name means “Recruitment Is The Answer!” It’s your ticket to a luxurious retirement, right?

So, rather than go on and on repetitively, let me just post the million Peso question:
Do you want to earn money while sitting down? “Who doesn’t!”

More than 90 percent of the mobile phone market is prepaid. Make it your business today!
