How to Make Money Online in Singapore?

Are you are fellow citizen living in Singapore who is looking for opportunities to make money online to increase your income or even quit your 9-5 job and start working from home fulltime?  If it’s a YES than you have definitely come to the right place.

In order not to waste yours and my precious time, I would like to tell you something important first. If you are looking for “quick get rich”  schemes than this is not the place for you. To be honest, all those that promises to make you rich overnight and nothing more than just scams. I believe we are all smart enough to realise that there is no way anyone can become rich without literally putting in any efforts.

If you think you are up for it… than you may read on.

I would definitely encourage you to diligently read till the end because there are lots of key information within the post.

Hey guess what? You may never know… this maybe the turning point in your life 🙂


The truth about living in Singapore…

#1: Cost of living



I guess by now most of you would have already known that Singapore is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Because of the high cost of living in Singapore most average people like us have to think not once but twice before we want to purchase anything.

One good example is owning a car in Singapore, Most middle-class family always have dreams of buying a car as a mode of transport. Honestly, if you got a choice will you rather take public transport(Bus/MRT) or drive a car? I bet most of you would definitely choose owning a car over public transport.

Unfortunately, owning a car requires you to set aside a big chunk of money every month outside your other expenses for fuel, insurance, road tax, repairing and etc. Let alone those, just take a look at the COE prices of cars in Singapore… because of that very reason most of us can only dream about them.


#2: Frantic lifestyle

Its definitely sad to see that almost everybody in Singapore are living a hectic lifestyle. You wake up every morning and rush everything hoping not to miss your bus or else you will be late for work and get scolded by your boss.

Majority of us are having a 9-5 job, with 1/2 rest days at most. Even during our rest days, our mind is never free of thinking about going back to work…”Oh no! tomorrow I have to go back to work again”. It’s common, everybody has that kind of feeling.

As a human being, everyone’s dream is to lead a luxurious an enjoyable lifestyle. Waking up late in the morning, relaxed(mind-free of work) and having a sip of coffee and start the day as you wish. But how many of us can do it? not many… unless you are a born billionaire.


Internet is the land of opportunities

Well, you don’t exactly have to be born rich to live rich. Take me as an example, I’m getting a fulltime income working from home. I wake up at any time I want and start doing my work. I’m my own boss, I set my own rules and whenever I want to work its up to me and there is nobody to control me. Having said that, that doesn’t mean you should relax too much till you forget about your job… self-discipline is very critical if you want to succeed in this industry.

Though I have not completely achieved all my targets, I am still happy that I’m half way through..

So you may be wondering… what on earth is this guy talking about? Ok, enough for the suspense’s… I’ll get to the point!

So what’s the trick to earn passive or fulltime income from home?Work-at-Home-Singapore

Online Marketing !!

Well, don’t get afraid of this word because it is not as what you exactly think it is. You don’t have to be a smart, intelligent or an internet geek to learn about online marketing. Anybody can become an online marketer, so don’t worry even if you have ZERO experience. Everything is a learning process, you have to start somewhere. For instance, when you are born you didn’t immediately start to walk, you learn to crawl first then only you slowly learn to walk.

As an online marketer, you only job is to promote products and earn commissions from them. The best part of it is that you do not need to own any of the products you promote. How much commission you earn from a product depends on the particular company you are working for.

You may wonder is it really possible to become rich over the internet… the answer is it’s ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE!!

Just to share with you some statistics, there are over 3 billion internet users in the world and everyday there are more people getting access to the internet. If you can target a very tiny fraction of these people, you can easily become rich.

The definition of rich differs from person to person, so you must ask yourself how rich you want to be. As for me, If I am earning about $6000-$7000 per month I am very satisfied with it. Currently, I am not hitting that level yet… but I am definitely on course.



My Amazon Associates Earning

As you can see this above is a snip of my past earning report from Amazon Associates. I’m not showing you this to brag, but to tell you that online marketing really works and is definitely the REAL DEAL.

I am not going to lie to you that within a month or two you are going to make thousands of dollars. It may take slightly longer than what you think, but ultimately it all goes down to yourself… how much effort are you willing to put in!

One of the wonderful things about being an online marketer is that your target audience are worldwide, not only within the country you live in.

Hence, more opportunity = more sales = more commissions = more revenue

So… you may wonder how exactly will you earn money. Below I will explain the entire money making process in just 4 simple steps.


4 simple steps to earn $$$ online


Step 1: Identify you interest

This is a very crucial step, so I suggest you give some deep thought to it. As a beginner or starter I recommend you to choose something that really interests you, something that you are passionate about… because it makes it much easier to set up your online business moving forward.

Most people who choose something that they don’t like, have a higher tendency of giving up half way through. The main aim of online business is to make money from working on something you like, if not it becomes no different from your normal 9-5 job.

Interests can be really anything, for e.g. dogs(pets), body building, weight loss, gaming, putting make up… literally anything.


Step 2: Build a Website

For most of us building a website is definitely a stranger to us. No worries, I was in the exact same situation when I first started out. There are many ways you can build websites – manually or through a website builder.

Manual website building requires lots of knowledge about coding and programming. In the past manual is a must but now since we have automatic website builder that does the same job in less than 30 seconds than why not make use of them?

Without good foundation, you can never build a skyscraper… similarly, in order to build a successful online business, you need a good website(foundation)


Step 3: Attract potential customers

The question is how do you make people come to your website?

Well… it’s very simple. You are required to add contents, write reviews and so on..

For e.g. let’s say I selected weight loss as my interest. So my website will be based on exercise equipments, weight loss products, exercise tips, do’s and don’t and so on.. this are just a few I listed but there is really lots of things you can talk about.

Once your content is published, you just have to wait for it to get ranked in the search engines(Google, Bing, yahoo). Once you ranked, lots of visitors have access to you site.


Step 4: Earn Revenue

Here comes the part that everyone has been waiting for. Earning money!! Once you are getting more traffic(people) to you website, you can increase the number of product reviews you write. Product reviews are basically the products you will be promoting. Earn-Money-In-Singapore

Slowly, your money will start coming in… To get you first sale it may take sometime, but don’t be disheartened because its only a matter of time before you get there.

Once you got your first sale, the rest will just follow through…

Lets say I decided to promote a treadmill for my weight loss website. The price of the treadmill is $1000 and 10% commission for each sale.. so if I made 1 sale I will get $100 commission.

Just take note, this is just for one product.. when you do product review for hundreds or thousands of products then you can easily say good bye to your boss and live the life you always wanted.


What now…?

Now, you may be wondering where and how do I even start since I have no knowledge about it.

Well, that’s a really good question. Here is where Wealthy Affiliate comes in…

Hey, I'm Kumar and thanks for dropping by. About a year ago, I was struggling hard to cope with my 9-5 job but now I have quit and started working fulltime from home as an online marketer. The purpose of my website is to help you do the same too. My goal is always to be my own boss and work for myself and I have definitely achieved that. If you want to follow my footstep and start earning money from your own home then you should check out My #1 Recommended Program .


  1. I ended up on your page looking for a little advice on marketing tutorials but I got so much more…
    I had no idea that Singapore had such a high level of living ( cost of living! ).
    I am very interested in your number one marketing recommendation – could you please tell me more about it? How long have you been going through its lessons and have you seen any success?

    • Hello Chris,
      I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for about 9 months now. Normally, I just go through the lessons whenever I have free time and slowly build my website. I will advice you not to rush and absorb too much information, just move along in your own pace.
      Well, it took me about two months before I made my first dollar. Ever since then, as the site grows you will be generating more sales. Now I am making on average about 3-4k per month. But these numbers will just continue to increase as you add more content to your website.
      Hope that helps…:)

  2. Awesome site explaining how to make money online. The content is well thought out and it is easy to naviget throughout this page. I’m curious why you specifically chose target Singapore seeing how online business is a world-wide economy. Keep up the great work however, This site can definitely help out many people.

    • Hello Anthony,
      Well.. the reason I decided to target Singapore in this particular post was I was born in Singapore myself. And from what I know, not many people in Singapore have heard of or are into internet marketing. So through this post I believe I could reach out to more people in Singapore who wants to make passive or fulltime income from home.

  3. Hi Kumar – Great post. Your post provides a whole wealth of knowledege and ideas. It is a very well written piece of literature.
    As you say for some reason people are afraid of Online Marketing. I don’t know why but I suspect its because they fear the unknown.
    You however have dispelled some of these fears an brought the best option for inexperienced people to the fore – Wealthy Affiliate.
    Great job – Keep on posting

    • Hello mark, thank you for your comment.
      You are right, the term online marketing seems not as an easy tasks to make money. Most people are afraid to try because they have no idea what is it about. But in reality, online marketing is one of the most straight forward and simplest way to make a living online, the only thing it requires effort and patience on your side.
      Wealthy Affiliate is the best training platform out there which teaches from scratch how to make money from online marketing. I started out with zero knowledge myself, but thanks to W.A I have learnt lots of useful information at the same time managed to establish a successful online business which made me achieve financial freedom.
      Since Wealthy affiliate is free to try.. there is no harm to try. If you didn’t want to continue wants after you tried is totally up to the individual, there wouldn’t be anyone forcing you.

  4. you did a good job addressing your main point. The cool thing about your post is that it can apply to anywhere in the world. Im sure cost of living in Singapore can be quite expensive at times but it is like that where I live as well, there are many ways to make extra money from home and online marketing is probably the best way. Great post.

    • Well, I have to agree with that statement of yours. Definitely anywhere around the world everyone wouldn’t mind having some extra cash in their hands. Thank you for dropping by.


  5. Great to find you here Kumar. I’m from Singapore too & I joined Wealthy Affiliate a little later than you did (6months). I must say that the immense support you get on WA is tremendous compared to those pesky little scams out there wanting you to sign up with your credit cards. It has certainly taught me a ton of things not obtainable in school.

    • Hi Lee,
      Glad to here that there are fellow Singaporean inside here too. You are very right, Wealthy Affiliate has taught us lots of valuable knowledge which you cant get in school. What better place can you get that allows you to learn and earn at the same time?


  6. Hi Kumar

    I live in South Africa and you can do a lot with our currency. If you can earn $4000 per month here is South Africa, then you can buy a car cash in just 3 months.

    The internet has a lot of opportunity and people need to know that it will never be saturated. Wealthy Affiliate is a good place to get started.

  7. Hi I stopped over in Singapore for 2 days last December on my way to Thailand. I have to say that it is a very beautiful and clean city. Despite your criticism, I think this is a price to pay for every luxury and safety you get if you compare it elsewhere. So I would say do count your blessing.

  8. Hey Kumar,

    Great post. I’m sure the good people of Singapore (that are looking to make money online) will find this very helpful. So helpful, in fact, that it could change their lives.

    Why? Wealthy Affiliate, the program you’re recommending.

    I can say Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to start online.

    They have everything you need to get started (pretty much).

    It’s where I got my start.

    Now I run a blog that is growing fast. 🙂 Plus a couple others that are making me some monthly money. 😉

    Anyway, great post, man. I hope Singaporeans find your resource.


  9. Thank you for posting your Amazon Associates earnings. That’s amazing that you have earned so much. It just goes to show, Amazon Associates is definitely a good way to go when it comes to affiliate marketing. Because people already happily shop on Amazon, they don’t require much convincing that it is a good place to buy a particular product. And the other great thing is that they have so many different products across all categories, you are sure to find products to fit your chosen niche.

    Affiliate marketing is such a great business model. No need to hold any physical products, and no need to deal with customers if there are any problems. All you need to do is to get people to click through to the site, and if they buy, you make money. This is a perfect way to do business. It also works out really well for the merchant, too, because they only need to pay you if you generate sales.

  10. Hi Kumar,

    I liked your post about living in Singapore. I didn’t know about high living cost there, the stress and a lot of hours of work per week. But you inspired me with your post to make money online.

    I already signed up for Wealthy Affiliate program since July 29, and I learned a lot. I finished my 5 level certificate courses, and I am working hard to make money soon.

    Thank you for your stats, is wonderful to know that people like you are generating this kind of income.

    • Thank you!

      Yes, you would need a website to get started. Although you can just get Affiliate links from the products and share on social media and forums, it’s not a good option and you won’t really make anything out of it. The best way is to create a website and lead them to your affiliate links. The conversion rate is much higher than those without a site.

  11. Although I’m not living in Singapore, trying to make a living in Kuala Lumpur on its neighbouring country is not much easier. I resorted to learning the ropes in online marketing, with the hope to tap on the power of currency exchange and the borderless world of internet marketing. Of course, you’re right in having the right expectation that success doesn’t happen overnight.
