Sell on eBay
This is by far the easiest method for a teen to make money online. Personally I have made close to $1000 selling on eBay, and I only sold on eBay for 3 months! No matter how you slice it that is 300 extra bucks per month. So if you want to make some money on eBay, you need to first sign up for a Paypal account and an eBay account. You do have to be 18 to sell on eBay but you can definitely work around it if you are under 18. I was selling stuff on eBay when I was 15 so you should not have any issues, but do it at your own risk.
If you have crap laying around your house that you don’t use, create a listing for the items and sell them. I guarantee that you will get at least one sale in your first week of selling on eBay, many people buy a ton of stuff and you are practically showing your item you want to sell to billions of people.
If you don’t have anything to sell in your house, then I would suggest you buy wholesale and novelty items and resell them on eBay. If you want more info on selling wholesale goods on eBay then watch the videos below.
Make Money with Paid Surveys and Cash Offers
There are many sites out there that pay you to fill out forms and complete surveys. The best sites for this are CashCrate, Clixsense, and Microworkers. I have personally made over $300 dollars with CashCrate.
Affiliate marketing is pretty much when you promote other people’s products and get a commission for it. This commission could range from 25% to 75% of the price of the product. The great thing about affiliate marketing is how it can generate passive income and there is virtually no limit to how much money you can earn.
Pat Flynn of smartpassiveincome.com makes over $80,000 a month from his affiliate marketing blog. I’m not saying you will make that much but as someone who wants to make money as teen, you could definitely make a few hundred bucks per month if you really work hard.
This method does take a few months before you start generating income, but if you can get the ball rolling, it can make you huge money! You don’t need a blog or website to do affiliate marketing but I highly advise you do. Check out this page to see all the tools you need to start a blog for affiliate marketing. If you want a more understandable and dumbed down version of how you can make money online with affiliate marketing, then check out the video below!
Video is powerful, you know the YouTube greats: PewdiePie, Jenna Marbles, Elliot Hulse, and others. Believe it or not they make millions of dollars a year from their channel through selling their own products and through the ads that play before the video(Google Adsense). Starting a successful YouTube channels takes a lot of work and it could take years before you make a living doing it.
