This is a fantastic article and it really has given me help. I want to go to this thing in the summer called Creation Fest and it has music and speackers to celebrate God and it costs a lot! I was looking for help and I found this. $100+ seems easy at first but then your stuck when your my age. Thanks a whole bunch and I will probably come back again.

As with most things, the better you are, the more money you will make, but it can be a nice passive income if you work at it!

Quite a useful list! Thanks very helpful

There seem to be some apps popping up that pay you to do simple stuff like take a picture of a menu, or of yourself drinking a starbucks, or verifying that a road is closed you get the picture. Here are a few that I found:

WeGoLook is a way for customers to have someone else do the leg work of having something inspected or perform a task.

Why would I even think about shoþþing anyþlace else?

Basically this is a free site that offers you a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards, or other rewards.

Youll start earning 60% of the price your student pays for lessons and for every 5 lessons you teach, youll earn 10% more of that students lesson price up to 90%!

Then, youll use your phone to scan the barcodes on all products you purchase during any shopping trip.

Hey, I appreciate that you made a whole site for teens like me to learn about taxes on our summer jobs. For teens like me who cant buy youre ebook thing, I looked up the details. Basically, according to a teen that is depending on a tax-payer (like a parent or guardian) can make up to $5,950 without oweing taxes. Another tip from that article was to make sure your employer (if you have one) classifys you as the correct worker. If you get classified as a contractor you owe self employment fees or something similar. Thanks for reading this and I hope it hel

They make it easy to get paid (unlike so many other survey sites) and they have over 7 million members, so clearly they are doing something right.

SurveyJunkie An actual LEGIT survey site

The site is basically a virtual online classroom for freelance teachers and students. Anyone can offer lessons (and set their own price) and anyone can take lessons. From a quick scan, it looks like making $15-20/hour is a fair expectation.

I bought them at a discount from the wholesaler

Basically, as a member of NCP you help manufacturers and retailers make decisions on what products to develop or improve.

Any teenagers that read this list I recommend for you to take action on AT LEAST one of the things on this list.

I have tried it out and have received multiple payments from them, so I can attest that it is legit. Check out myreview here!They also offer a $5 bonus!

I am 17 in May and currently studying year 12. I dont have a job though have tried a couple times. Given i have exams coming up i cant manage a normal job but need some source of income even if its small. Im not all that technical so a lot of the things up there dont work. I have strong english skills, love working with kids. I like sport, , languages animals and can cook. I have tried to get babysitting but havent had much luck so far.

As you can see in the image to the right, you just scan the barcode with your phone (or enter the ISBN ) and then the app provides the prices that a bunch of book buyback sites are willing to pay for that particular book.

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 wasnt 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.

Rose and others looking for employment this summer: Retry the babysitting idea. Summer is a good time to babysit. Maybe volunteer a few times first and then use those families as references. Tell everyone you know that you are available to babysit. Use email, Facebook, fliers, word of mouth. Also try offering a set time every week, like Tuesday evenings form 5-9 pm in your home. Parents know they can drop off their children without calling ahead. They really appreciate that. It takes time and persistence to get the word out, butit can be done!

Some advantage is I look uni age already.

You wont get rich taking surveys, but it may be one of the simplest money making websites out there.

Teens might be great for this because they would be able to work for less than some higher end website developers, which would put them in the price range that it seems many small businesses are looking to spend.

You can list it as often as you want and can list it to be by the night, week, or month. Airbnb offers a $1,000,000 guarantee to protect you from any kind of property damage that may be caused by guests.

If you dont know what Uber is, basically it is the 21st century version of the taxi.  You just use your own car and when someone near you wants a ride you get a notification on your phone (assuming you selected that you were available in the app) you go pick them up and drop them off where they want to go and then you automatically get paid.

I will be a regular here from now on. And will sure invite a few trusted friends who value information such this.

Very Good Resource. Sorry I cant think of the authors name off hand. Wait, Google.. Dr. Denis Cauvier and Alan Lysaght

If you are not familiar withmystery shopping, the gist is that companies often hire everyday people like you and I to come in and pose as regular shoppers.

I first learned about you when I downloaded your free e-book, How to Make Money BLOGGING, via Amazon Kindle. It was a sure one-sitting kind of book but is very meaty. I got all the wonderful ideas from your book and finally decided to visit your website to harvest some more inspiration. I am so glad my path was directed here because I also have just started my incognito blog.

My 18 year old sister has been complaining that there are no jobs and thet she cant make money. After reading this, I think she just might be lazy. Ill forward it to her and see if she still comes up with excuses.

the problem with CashCrate is that the amount of money that u get out of it is VERY slim.. and even to get that VERY slim portion of money you have to complete a lot of surveys and to cash-in on the money you earned u must make over $20, trust me. i tried it, it took me over 6-12 months to get the cash.. i used the site like if my life depended on it. it was very hard.

10Get paid to declutter your house?

After running an experiment to see ifFundrise could earn more than my rental property, I discovered that it did indeed generate more income than my rental and so I quickly sold it!

I cant tell you how many people have asked me to build them a website since I started this one a couple years ago. I am not seeking the work and people are requesting it, so if you do a little legwork and pursue small business owners, there is a lot of work available.

I agree,,, surveys are a HUGE waste of time 25 cents each???? Really???? And yes, they want you to join even more and more and there is your information on the internet. and then you start getting spam and I wonder if its from that!!

In this case, we can make $3.60 selling this Dave Ramsey book.  If I can buy it for 50 cents, then that sounds like a nice profit.

Many big companies are looking for feedback about the usability of their website.

Admittedly, this one requires some money in order to make money, but Fundrise has become my new favorite method ofearning passive incomeso I figured it was worth the mention.

Oh and they also have an A+ rating with the BBB.

If you love cars and arent afraid to haggle, you could start a car flipping biz. We have a friend of the family who has done this for years. He scours the classified listings for deals, lands a good deal and then drives the car while trying to sell it for a couple grand more.

About the list, this is extremely helpful. I know some coaches who are already earning a lot of money and would choose to get paid for the information that they know but you, you choose to share it to everybody else free of charge. Be a proud brethren of Christ because this is his very attitude. I say this is an act of love. May it be returned to you and your family a million fold.

Basically my experiment went like this:

This article originally began as ways for teens to make money, but as I have updated and added to it over the years, I have found that many of the items listed actually work for many adults looking to make some extra income as well.

Many companies are looking for qualified candidates who know the ins and outs of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to help them with their social marketing efforts.
