I’ve got a business for you

Easy work, big money

We are leaving the Philippines, and I have a business that I want to sell. A lot of people ask me how they can make money in the Philippines, so this might be a good thing for some of the readers here.

I don’t even consider this a job, frankly, it is fun and easy.

Tagalog Buddy

Santa Claus

I started doing Santa Claus appearances in the Philippines in 2014. I did it as more of a one time deal in 2014, didn’t intend to make it an ongoing thing at all.

But, it was so much fun, and so rewarding. So, I kept on doing it.

2018 was my best year yet

Business-wise, 2018 was my best ever year as Santa Claus. I got a lot of new business, and my existing clients increased their Santa appearances for the most part too.

I have a great stable of ongoing clients:

  • SM City Ecoland Davao
  • SM Lanang Premier Davao
  • SM City General Santos
  • NCCC Mall Tagum
  • NCCC Mall Buhangin Davao
  • NCCC Main Uyangurin Davao
  • NCCC Centerpoint Davao
  • Amway Davao
  • Globe Telecom

I also get regular requests for appearances in Manila and other places in the Philippines. This year I was even offered a gig on a Cruise Ship that visited Vietnam, China, and Malaysia.

It is special

As I mentioned, in 2014, I never intended to do this as an ongoing thing.

However, in 2014 I was at Gaisana Grande Mall in Panabo, Davao del Norte, and I overheard a man telling his 2 year old daughter “Finally, we have the real Santa Claus this year.” that Statement touched my heard, and I decided that I had to keep doing it, and I am happy that I did.

A lot of these Filipino kids have never seen Santa Claus before, and the reactions that you get are realy heart warming.

Special offer for a Special Business

I am not looking to make a huge amount of money for this business. In fact, I am offering it for less than the amount you can make in a single season being Santa Claus.

If you are the right person, contact me and let me know of your interest. I will get back to you with information about how much you can make (it is a lot more than you think), and how much I am asking for the business.

I am also willing to offer very good non-cash terms for the right person, so give me a shout!

Ho Ho Ho!

Hello, I read your article when I can. Love it thank you and those who write it. I dressed up as Santa here in Polangui Albay for a private party. Just wanted to know how much can I make as a Santa here. Limited on what I can do, have Fibromyalgia, but think I can do this.
