Some businesses may be interested in adding other types of paid content to your website. This could include videos, podcasts, or any other material that would work with your site and help a business market itself. Always make sure that paid content isn’t too promotional. It needs to add value to your audience first and foremost, and not just present as an advert.
To work at a pool you’ll need a National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) or The National Aquatic Rescue Standard (NaRS) qualification, and for the beach it’s the RLSS National Beach Lifeguard Qualification or the NaRS. You can get these qualifications by joining an RLSS lifeguard club or SLSA as a volunteer and training with them or with a commercial training organisation. Some pools will train their own staff whilst they work. You can get details on lifeguard training courses on the Learn Direct website.
To make money online you need to have a niche site. Blogging in a niche will make it easier to become an authority and rank with Google. Choosing the right niche is important. Choose one large enough to have a good readership but small enough to make ranking easier. Ranking within Googles top ten search ranking will drive thousands of readers to your site.
Hi Dody! I honestly don’t think that’s a question that can be answered with an one size fits all answer. The best site for affiliate marketing will be based on your niche, what you audience wants and what you are comfortable selling. I know lots of people that RAVE about shareasale.com – I personally haven’t had wild success with them because they don’t offer many products that I personally have found useful / easy to promote on my blog. I would strong suggest taking the making sense of affiliate marketing course – it will clear up any questions you have about affiliate marketing 🙂
Paid advertising — this method requires an effective combination of ad copy, graphics, and a highly-clickable link.[30] Unlike more traditional affiliate marketing strategies, paid advertising (through pay-per-click ads) earn you money regardless of whether a reader buys the product or not. Services like Google's AdSense make this quick and easy for you, and can even supply you with an advertising code.[31]
Harris Poll Online is another legit survey site that pays people to complete surveys. When you join Harris Poll Online (it’s free to join), you’ll fill out a profile.  Harris Poll Online shares information about you to other companies. This helps companies get surveys from people with coordinating interests. FYI, the information you share is secure and never sold to third parties.
Create apps: There are over a million apps available to both Apple and Android users today. Coming up with a new idea for an app can be nearly impossible so your best bet is most likely to improve upon already existing ideas. Although creating an app is a lot of work, it’s the marketing and sales component that can be the most challenging. See A 12-Step Guide to Building Your Very First Mobile App: Part 1 for a good high-level overview of what it takes to build an app.
You shouldn’t notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.
So there is this app named featurepoints. It is an app which you can make money by downloading other apps and testing them out. For each app you download you will receive points, these points can be exchanged for rewards.

Teenagers today have an assortment of skills that are useful on the Internet. For those who are skilled writers, earning money will be that much simpler. Additionally, there are well paying jobs available for teenagers who know how to write web pages or programs, are skilled at making crafts or collecting antiques, or are just interested in making a bit of cash from using the web like normal.


People are turning to audio and visuals when it comes to technical subjects. However, you should consider doing an ebook first and turning it into an audiobook through a resource like Audible's ACX platform. You can hire a producer either through a royalty share program, so you don't have to shell out upfront cash, or you can do a pay-per-hour hire as well.
Don't know how to code? No worries. Ethan Duggan, a 12-year-old from Las Vegas, took an online coding class for a few months in between the 5th and 6th grade. He ended up developing an app called Lazy Husband and is now in the process of learning about pricing, profitability, and other real-life business topics that are great to learn at a young age. Check out Codeacademy to learn more.

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a service that lets you make money online through doing paid microtasks. Each task is something simple that requires human interaction like rating search results, checking for the right spelling on search terms, categorizing the tone of an article, or even basic translating. You can do these tasks from anywhere you want and make money online from the world’s largest e-retailer.
Honestly, affiliate marketing can be easy, but it’s not going to get you hundreds of dollars overnight. Successful affiliate marketers make money online because they’ve put in time to learn the business, are constantly adapting to an ever-changing landscape, by investing initial earnings into outsourcing work, and were incredibly patient. I’ve said it many times before and I’ll say it again… the vast majority of people do NOT have the patience to succeed in affiliate marketing.

Google Adwords can be used to drive targeted traffic to a sales page. You simply make an ad in your adwords account then use your affiliate link in the target page URL of the ad. Obviously, you will have to continuously measure the conversions and see if the campaign cost is less than the campaign profit in order to keep the campaign running but I am sure you get the idea.
Yet another Amazon service providing the possibility to make money online is the Audiobook Creation Exchange. You can create a standalone audiobook, or create an audio version of your eBook as complementary media. And you can narrate your audiobook yourself, or Amazon can put you in contact with a professional to help. Once sold, you can then earn up to 40% royalties per audiobook.

Dayo, sadly, because of the market size, app related business remain only profitable in a few western countries. I don’t know of any that could be used in Nigeria. That said, you can always put your own twist on things and make something that people in your local area could find useful. Essentially, you create a niche market out of it, and that can be very profitable.
Rather than making money through subscriptions, YouTube channels are based on a traditional advertising system. Meaning the more viewers you get, the more you make. Once you’re approved for the YouTube Partner Program and can start including ads on your videos, with every 1,000 views, you will make approximately $2-$4. Which might not seem like a lot, but if you have 100 videos with 5,000 views a month each, that would be $1,000–$2,000 already. Just imagine if your videos start hitting millions of views!
I used to have fun doing surveys while I watched TV. I was choosy about the companies I used and I never paid to sign up for any. I got about $25 in free BlockBuster movie coupons, cashed out about $25 from another site and did an in house project trial where a company sent me to full size body lotions to use and record information about. I had fun, felt like my input was improving the business world, but I wasn’t looking to get rich quick, just earn a little bit in time that typically wasted. Some survey companies pay very little, others pay better. Of course, it is not fair to the businesses conducting the research to lie in order to qualify for a survey and they certainly deserve honest and thoughtful answers to their questions. The companies I worked with told me how much the survey would pay and how long it would it would take. Research for the reputable companies.

mTurk: I personally like this one for some spare cash. It does not take much to earn $20 a day. Some claim that they are able to make a living by dedicating their time to different jobs at mTurk. You will have to go through a learning curve, but once you get comfortable, you will find plenty of good and interesting HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks) to work on.


Qmee is a browser extension that you can install on pretty much any browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). Once installed, sometimes Qmee will show sponsored advertisements on the side when you're searching on any popular search engine. Each advertisement will pay a certain amount (usually a few cents or more). If you visit any of the ads you see when they pop up, you'll get that cash into your Qmee account. They will pay out instantly to Paypal no matter how much is in your account. Qmee is open to people ages 13 and up in either the US or the UK.
Dr. Rose wrote that she was about to give on in frustration, then, fortuitously, she ran across a pin that blared, “How To Make Your First Affiliate Sale in 24 Hours Using Pinterest.” She clicked it out o fcuriousity, then found out what the “catch” was. The link was to a purchase page for a book by that name. Not wanting to make the purchase — after all ,she’s been blogging for a couple of months, but still ahdn’t made any money, she thought to herself “How’s this possible?”
Yes, companies will pay you to install apps (or place ads) on your cell phone and leave them there. These apps often run in the background and track your spending/purchasing habits but if you’re not one to really care who knows what groceries you’re buying that week then this is seriously the easiest way to make upwards of $300 per year for no reason.
Yes, you can make money online.I run a few small niche websites. For instance, How to Convert PDF is a tiny site that has free videos on how to convert other types of documents into PDF format. It sells a piece of software called PDF Creator, and I make a few dollars every time someone buys from that site. I promoted the site using pay-per-click ads and it was profitable. Don’t copy me directly, but do find the intersection of people needing help and a tool, ebook, or software program that will help them fix their problem. Then, create a website designed to get them to buy it!
The beautiful thing about a course is that you get about as much out of them as you put into them. If you want to do one course launch, make a few thousand bucks and walk away, you can do that. If you want to create multiple courses around a general topic and run an academy that you advertise through webinars, podcasts, blogs, and joint-ventures and build a lifestyle business from your home, you can do that too!  
The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort. Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing almost nothing ("Three clicks to rich!"). Or, they suggest you can set up your affiliate site, and then forget it, except to check your bank deposits.

One of the things I have done over the past two years is tracking the methods I use to make money with Amazon by tracking IDs as well as tracking other things that I have done while building websites. My Amazon. The first time I published my findings in two blog posts early last year when I first started this blog and even today, they are still among the most popular posts. It’s been over a year now and I’m providing an up-to-date list of some of the new tips I’ve learned since that time.
Slice the Pie is a website you can use to rate and review music. You can sign up at 13 and older. Simply listen to a clip of a song — most of the time by a newer artist — and give it a 1 to 10 rating along with four or five sentences explaining what you liked or didn't like about the music clip. Pay for each music clip you rate varies. Sometimes I get as much as .18 cents and then other times it's down to 7 cents. Slice the Pie occasionally has special promotions where you can earn more for rating songs. They pay out every Tuesday and Friday with Paypal. You must have at least $10 to request your money.
In 2017, there were almost 90 million pet dogs in the US. Which has opened up a huge opportunity to make money online as a dog watcher or sitter. Specialized sites like Rover or Care.com connect pet owners with pet walkers, sitters, and boarding houses to help look after their best friends when they’re at work or on a trip. If you’re an animal lover, you can make extra money and get to spend some quality time with a furry friend.
If you’re in the WordPress industry like I am (whether it be design, development, or SEO) I have accumulated quite the list of WordPress affiliate programs. I excluded those I found unsuccessful or pay too little to make a profit from, specifically ThemeForest, Creative Market, and low quality theme stores like Template Monster. Hosting pays well and I wrote a tutorial for SiteGround’s affiliate program and StudioPress themes which are my 2 highest paying affiliates. Those tutorials have tons of screenshots/social proof especially for SiteGround.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online? This isn't just about generating passive income; this is also about finding ways and means to create an active income through the conveniences afforded to us by the internet that will not only help us with our debt obligations, but also empower us to save, invest and get really rich in the future.
Amazon’s affiliate program is the most popular of them all. I don’t participate myself (yet) but the majority of affiliate marketers I know use Amazon because… it’s Amazon. You can review products you have used or write tutorials (eg. how to connect computer to TV) and drop an affiliate link to an HDMI cable… just a couple examples. You may want to build relationships with the manufacturers so you can get products before they’re released – giving you time to create a review before the product is launched and capture sales during peak buying times.

Hi, I commented a year ago, but from what I can tell, nobody ever messaged me. I’m sixteen (gonna be seventeen in a little over a month), and I am looking for a job. I don’t have paypal, but I do have American Express if anything uses that. And I still don’t have a phone. Are there any writing or music jobs I could have? I thank you very much if you took the time to read and answer back.
I almost didn't list Swagbucks here because, while it's a great rewards site, they list in their terms that you can't expect for up to 10 days after you cash out. However, it's still an option to earn fast cash because some people report getting paid much faster than this. You can redeem you SB (Swagbucks) for Amazon codes, Paypal cash, and gift cards to popular merchandisers among other things. These points build up quickly thanks the the large number of things you can do on the site to earn. I've used this site and been paid many times. 

I have reviewed tons and tons of survey sites to find which ones I would recommend to you. These are the top 7 survey sites that I have found that are the best for making money as teens. They all have their differences but they are also kind of similar. You can earn money taking surveys, watching videos, playing games, etc. These are probably the easiest and fastest ways to make money online as a teen.


Thanks so much for this informative post! I have been trying to find a way to work from home ever since my son was born in 2003 and I just haven’t found the right fit yet. I’ve dabbled in the VA thing and sold a few things on ebay. I am actually now starting a business (in its very early stages), but I would love to write articles for magazines as well.

Sponsored posts work much in the same way as paid guest posts, but they are posted by big businesses instead of individual bloggers. Therefore, the scope for fees is much higher, as businesses have larger marketing budgets than humble bloggers. Having sponsored posts by large companies will also help promote your site as reputable and as a leader in its field.
I would have one partner create a separate page/contact form specifically for the advertiser – so only people who see that contact form are people who were referred to by the advertiser. The advertiser would use that page as their outbound link. I know you can track outbound clicks in Google Analytics events and Contact Form conversions (usually through most contact form plugins) but that is the best way I think. Never done it, but this is how I see most affiliate programs like that work.
Banners – after testing them out I decided to take down my banner ads since they looked salesy and weren’t working like my affiliate links did. They’re easy to throw up, but distracting and probably won’t get great results. If you try them, be sure to show specific sidebar banners based on the type of content people are reading on your blog (for posts that fall under my SEO category I would show a banner related to SEO, and for posts under my website speed category I would show a different banner). You can do this using a plugin like Widget Logic. 

Using a food delivery service can’t necessarily earn you money, but it can help you save you money if you constantly find yourself throwing out half the food you buy. Food delivery services send a box of food every week with new, sometimes unique vegetables, meat, fruit, and so on. If you don’t have time to shop and want simple meal-prep that leads to a good meal, a food subscription service may be perfect for you.
There are lots of people making money online freelance writing. It’s a good way to earn extra money online since there is no set time commitment. Blogs and websites are always looking for new/fresh content. This means there is always a demand for well written articles on a variety of topics. Choose a niche to focus on. Ideally one that fits well with your current interests.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Most of the software and apps you use on a regular basis are made by massive companies or established development studios. Well, yes. But many successful apps, particularly those in the Apple and Google stores, are created and marketed by individuals and small businesses. In fact, independent developers made $20 billion in the App Store in 2016 alone.
Become a busser at a restaurant. While most restaurants require servers and bar staff to be over 18 or 21 years old, many do hire teenagers as bussers, food runners, or delivery drivers. In these jobs, you have less interaction with the customers, but you gain valuable experience in the restaurant industry and often receive a cut of the servers’ tips. It’s also a physically demanding job as you should expect to be on your feet for the duration of a shift, so keep in mind any mobility issues you may have.

I would have one partner create a separate page/contact form specifically for the advertiser – so only people who see that contact form are people who were referred to by the advertiser. The advertiser would use that page as their outbound link. I know you can track outbound clicks in Google Analytics events and Contact Form conversions (usually through most contact form plugins) but that is the best way I think. Never done it, but this is how I see most affiliate programs like that work.


Graphic design is another opportunity, especially if you’re artistically inclined. It typically involves small-scale projects — things like logos, blog headers, formatting ebooks and printables, and other things like that. Fiverr and Esty are both great places to get started with selling your graphic design, and you can also use them to get a feel for what sells.
#19 –  Fiverr – On this market place you would sign up the various jobs or tasks that you are willing to do for not more than $5. Some of those include writing, doing some graphic design work and the like. You get your payment via PayPal, (Payoneer or bank transfer) after fees have been deducted, bringing your net amount to $3.80 for each task you complete.

If you are great at typing fast and transcribing, this is for you! By signing up at Transcribe Me, you get to work on tasks where you are expected to turn audios and videos into text form. What’s more, you get to determine your work schedule and have the opportunity to have a career progression. All that you need is a computer connected to the internet and your transcription skills. Tracking of your weekly work is easy and in real-time. You also get to request for your payment at anytime as long as you have a minimum balance of $20. This is released in a fast and secure way through PayPal every Thursday before 9 a.m. EST.
Secondly, if you want to be successful online, you need to have a next level website design. If your website isn't easy to navigate or doesn't incite curiosity from the get-go, visitors will leave your site and won't come back. Invest time and effort into making it the best it can be. You can build a beautiful WordPress website, for free. All that you need to pay for is the domain name.
Walk around your neighborhood or town and I’m sure you’ll see tons of great local businesses with terrible design. However, with increasingly easy-to-use tools like Adobe Illustrator, Venngage, Stencil, and Visme, just about anyone with a creative mindset and a good amount of motivation can start making money online by being a graphic designer for local companies.
