Different Ways for You to Make Money Online


While  online  survey sites remain the best way for teens to  make   money   online , there are many other options to keep in mind during your ventures. Here is a list of 5 other possibilities that you can use to get started on today.

1.) eBay – There are thousands of dollars to be made on eBay if you put the time in. An account is free and you can begin selling your items today. In fact, over the past month or so I have been selling old video games, clothes and other various items laying around my room and have already accumulated $870. It really is a great opportunity which is why many adults make their living by selling things via eBay. Just make sure that you are a reliable seller and be ready to communicate with the buyers about your items.

2.) Blogging – Have a hobby or interest? Write about it. For example, I have several friends that run a big gaming blog and pull in thousands of dollars a month via AdSense. At first, they got few visitors, but as they continued to write quality content more readers began to show up. By simply writing about something that they enjoyed, they were able to start up a relatively cheap blog and now make upwards of $5000 a month. By posting Google AdSense ads on the blog, visitors click on the ads and they are paid a commission for each click.

3.) Mechanical Turk – Until recently I had no idea what Mturk was. However, after checking it out and using it for a couple weeks I have been pleasantly surprised. Simply put, Mechanical Turk is a service offered by amazon.com that allows you complete small tasks for a compensation. For example, you may be shown a picture and told to describe it in 10 words for $0.10. Now this may not seem like a lot but after doing it for a while you can make a steady income. Also, there are much higher payouts like writing a 1000 word article for someone for $15. There is a good amount of  money  to be  made  on Mturk if you put the time in.

4.) Write an E-book – A simple and fun way to  make   money  is to write an e-book and sell it  online . Consider yourself an expert on something? Put your thoughts down on paper and you will be surprised at the amount of people interested in what you have to say. E-books can be about anything, so don’t think that just because your a teen people won’t want to read what you have to say. When your finished you can offer your book to people on forums, Facebook, etc. and charge a price that you think is reasonable.

5.) YouTube – YouTube is an amazing way to earn great  money   online . Creating an account is completely free and like blogging, you can place AdSense ads on your videos. Thousands of videos on YouTube have millions of views, so just imagine the profit that can be made. If you create a channel and upload funny, unique, informative, interesting videos you can quickly grow your view count on your videos and be well on your way to earning great money. However, just know that just because you make a video, that doesn’t mean that people will watch it. It has to be engaging and make sure to leave the viewer wanting more so they will come back and eventually tell others about your channel.

Combine what works for you

Now you don’t just have to try one of these methods. If you combine a couple of them you can be on your way to earning good  money   online  as a teen. Begin testing what works for you and what yields you the highest profit and stick with that. Good luck everyone! Thanks for reading.
