3 Ways For Teens to Make Money Online on a Budget


I remember what it was like being a teenager.

Pulling weeds and mowing the grass for a measly allowance to spend on weekends out and entertainment with my friends.

If only I knew the power of making money online back then. I would have been making crazy bank and doing whatever I wanted.

So, I know why you’re here. Because you don’t want to mow grass or pull weeds  for pennies; you want to make a decent
paycheck from your laptop.

I’m also assuming that you are on a budget.

So, if I was a teenager on a budget, searching for ways to make money online then this I would pick one of these…

1. Freelance Work

A lot of people make money on the internet by doing freelance work part-time.

If you have any skill in a particular area, then there are people out there willing to pay for it.

Web design, coding, photoshop, voice-overs, article writing, proofreading, graphic design, songwriting.

Whatever it is, you can find a way to get paid for your skills.

Sign up on sites like Fiverr.com, ODesk, and Elance and you can get paid anywhere from $5 – $100+ (depending on the requirements and your skill level).

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is when you sell somebody else’s products in exchange for a commission.

This makes it easier because you don’t have to create a product yourself and deal with all the headaches that come along with it.

You can find an entire list of products to promote on sites like Clickbank and JVZoo.

In a nutshell, you want to create a website around a niche market, build a targeted following of people, and then sell them the product that serves their needs.

For example, if you wanted to create a website in the weight loss niche:

Create a website about weight loss for men –> Find a product on Clickbank or JVZOO to promote –> build a targeted following of people interested in weight loss for men –> sell them your weight loss for men supplement.

Obviously, there’s a lot more to it than that, like driving traffic, creating content, and listbuilding, but that was a simple explanation.

You can choose to become an affiliate it all types of industries, and once you master this skill once, you can repeat it over and over to create multiple websites and multiple streams of income.

3. Online Network Marketing / MLM

Network marketing is my second suggestion for making money online as a teenager.

If you have an entrepreneurial mindset and want to be your own boss and lead a team in the future, then this is a great place to start.

In fact, I started here.

Network marketing is similar to affiliate marketing, in the sense that you are selling another company’s products for commissions.

However, with network marketing, you can build a team of distributors and you will get paid more the bigger your team is.

So essentially, you are working alongside other aspiring entrepreneurs with similar dreams and goals for life and you are getting paid for it for selling their products.

That’s not to say that network marketing and mlm is easy. It’s challenging, but anything worth going after is.

I feel a lot more confident, I can talk to anyone without feeling nervous, I make money, and I have fun. But I hustle, too.

Not everyone is cut out for network marketing.

If you don’t like those things then it probably isn’t for you.


Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll want a mentor so that you don’t waste your time and money doing things that don’t work.
