Are McDonald’s and Burger King the only places where teenagers can work? By a long shot, no. If you want to earn more than $10 per hour, choose your hours, and have some fun while doing it, keep reading! Teen Jobs?
Here are five different ways for teenagers to earn money:
1) Writing an article
Do you have any idea how many websites there are out there? Millions! The internet is the way of the future for the business. Writing and submitting articles is one of the best (and cheapest) ways for website owners to attract more visitors to their Free website. You can monetize your website with Google Adsense or other Ad networks.
On the other hand, business owners are usually very busy and may not have the time or desire to write articles. That’s where you’re needed! You could offer to write articles for small website owners (around 400-500 words). You can usually expect to be paid $10-20 per article.
EzineArticles (of course!) is one of the article directories where I’ve had the most success. Howthingswork.com, as well as Wiki.com
Can you figure out what the best thing about writing articles for money is? You can work from anywhere, at any time: no more dingy uniforms or stench-filled shifts.
2) Participating in online polls
Filling out surveys will not make you a millionaire, but it is a simple way to earn money quickly. Companies will pay you to take short surveys or test out their products. They want to know what you think about what you like and don’t like!
Cash Crate is one of the best and fastest growing paid survey sites. Signing up is completely free, and you can begin earning money right away. But be warned: you’ll start receiving an avalanche of spam unless you set up a separate email account.
3) Taking Care of Other People’s Pets
You’ve probably heard of dog walking or pet sitting. This, on the other hand, is a novel twist. I own a condominium complex and hire a local teen once a week to pick up doggie. For $15, it takes less than an hour.
Although it isn’t the most glamorous job, a pooper scooper makes it simple to do and never runs out of work!
In colder climates, this service is helpful. There are numerous business opportunities as the snow melts!
4) Car Washing, Waxing, and Car Detailing in People’s Driveways or at Work
I’m not sure what happened… However, my cat got locked in the van overnight by accident. I can’t tell you how revolting the odor is! Someone else cleaning up the mess would be worth a lot of money to me.
This is a fantastic way for high school or college students to earn cash. You could even advertise with local businesses and shine their cars while working in the parking lot.
5) Use Etsy to sell handcrafted items
This is my preferred method of earning money for teenagers. And it’s something I only recently learned about! It works similarly to eBay, but it’s for handcrafted items. So, if you have a talent for creating anything, from furniture to baked goods to dog collars, you can sell it on this site.
Over a million people are looking to buy on their website. It is free to join, but it does cost money. List items for thirty cents and pay a 3.5 percent sales tax on items sold. It’s working for me! These are just a few examples of teen jobs that pay well. That’s all about teen jobs.
