3 Main Sources of Online Income in Asia
- eBay Arbitrage

Start a blog on a topic of your interest and get paid from contextual advertising like Google Adsense (where ads relevant to your content are served). To begin, you can create a blog on Blogger.com and open a Google Adsense account where you will be guided to generate an Adsense code to be pasted on your blog for ads to appear. Next, commence writing on your blog and you will receive money whenever someone visits your blog and clicks on these ads.
