In this post, I'll show you the 10 best ways to make money online for kids, teens and bloggers. 'Make Money Online' is perhaps the most searched for phrase on Internet, and that shows how many people seek such opportunities and want to earn extra cash. There are thousands of sites out there promising to get you money, but hardly some which really help you do that.
10 best and genuine ways for Kids, Teens and Bloggers to make money online:
1. Start a Blog - PPC Advertising
Starting a blog or a website is perhaps the best time investment. I have already discussed this topic in my previous posts and emphasized a lot on using blogger platform if you're a newbie. Once you do, start posting quality articles and work on bringing visitors to your blog.
You may have started a blog with the sole intention of sharing information or just for fun. But after getting enough traffic to your website, you may want to make some money from it, that's when PPC advertising comes handy. Display Pay-Per-Click ads on your blog, and when a visitor clicks on one of the ads, you get paid for it.
You just have to sign up for a publisher account in any PPC service of your choice. Adsense is one of the most popular services out there run by Google, though not the only option. There are hundreds of other ad networks to your rescue, choose the one that suits your needs.
2. Paid/ Sponsored reviews
Writing paid reviews is the most sought after ways to make money. You can get anywhere from $5-$50 per 100-500 words of content. This is perhaps the fastest way to earn money from your website and slightly better than PPC if you want fast cash.
There are hundreds of paid review sites like - Sponsored Reviews and SocialSpark. You don't have to worry about finding advertisers here, they do all the hard work for you.
3. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is the backbone of some of the most popular blogs on Internet. In fact, some display only affiliate ads and earn over $10,000 per day (quite a big deal, isn't it?). Read More
Sign up as an affiliate for Amazon or Clickbooth. Once you're approved, you can sign in to your affiliate account, generate an affiliate link of any product and display that link on your blog. So when a reader clicks on your affiliate link and purchases that product from the affiliate site (in our case - Amazon.com), you earn commission on that sale. The commissions range from 5% to 40% depending on the type of product. For instance, if you display an affiliate link of DSLR camera (worth $2000), and if you get a lead. Don't be shocked if you earn $500 just from one sale.
4. Sell a service
If you're good at too many things at a time, then why not use the Internet to sell bits of your talent for a fixed price of $5? Fiverr.com will help you post small tasks (Gigs) that you're ready to take up. And when someone has a suitable gig , they will hire you. Finish the gig and get paid. It may seem like a freelancing site, but trust me its not. Try it!
5. Web Re-seller
Are you a business minded person or always want to start a business of your own - the entrepreneur type? Than why not become a Web Re-seller.
Sign up for a reseller account in any web hosting company. Just keep managing the domains by selling and hosting services. This one needs a little investment, but once you know how to deal with it, money will pour into your pockets at the click of a button.
Of course, you have to know the basics of web hosting and stuff before starting, or you will fail to set things up and eventually end up as a failure.
6. Get paid to answer questions
If you're one of those who knows lot more than others do, then you sure at luck. Use your talent to answer questions and get paid for it. Read More
I know this sounds crazy, but there are people out there who want instant solution to their problems. For instance - if someone has an issue with his laptop and doesn't know the solution, and if he could find someone who could offer a solution for $5 then why would he call an engineer to get it fixed and pay $50? Seems logical right? Then why don't you give a shot. A good website for this is Just Answer.
7. Sell Photos Online
If you have a collection of some awesome images, you can sell them to various microstock agencies and build a passive revenue stream for a lifetime. If you don't have any photos, you can click some. You just need a camera and a little bit of creativity to click those perfect moments.
Once you have a good number of photographs, sign up with any microstock agencies and submit your images. When someone downloads/purchases your submitted images, you get paid. The payment rates range from $0.25 to well over $10 per download. For instance, if you have 25 approved images and each image is downloaded 10 times per day, you get 25x10x0.50= $125 per day (Assuming the royalty rate per image as $0.50). Read More
Popular microstock agencies to sell your images - Shutterstock, Fotolia, Dreamstime, 123rf and Bigstockphoto.
8. Design Stuff
99designs is a design oriented website, where people post design contests. Designers have to submit their designs as per the guidelines. Win the contest and return with a bag full of money. After winning at least one contest, you become eligible to sell your own designs priced at $50 each or higher depending on the design type.
9. Sell your blog
Many bloggers start a blog just to sell it. And why not if you can make good money from it. Just start a blog, add some quality content, get traffic and auction it on sites like Flippa.com.
