Your hobby can be your business
By Entrepreneur Staff |

Do you like creating software and programs during your free time? Or do you have a background in mobile content? It can actually be your ticket to business success.

What will I be doing?
Supplying mobile phone content to telecom firms.

What will I need to start?
Creative and programming skills and high-end computers. If you’re starting from scratch, you’ll need to take programming classes (Informatics charges around P23,000 for a five day course) and buy programming equipment (P20,000 to P40,000 for a regular computer set). Most content providers work in groups of three or four, but if you’re making simple content, do it yourself so you can keep all the money

Who will my customers be?
Companies in the telecommunications and communication sectors. To establish connections, start joining technology fairs

How much should I charge?
Local firms pay P600 for outsourced games and ring tones. U.S firms are said to pay $4,000 to any group of three to four people who can develop content in two months

How much will I make?
This will depend on the type of content you’ll be producing and the number of customers you attract
