Online Jobs for Teens

If you are a mother like me..and you have a teenager, you are probably tired of being asked for money all the time. I know I am, my son has expensive taste (think iphone and video games). They never get tired of asking for money as they need clothes, expensive smartphones, gaming consoles and whatever they like. It’s very hard to make them happy all the time especially in this economy and it’s not very easy for them to find jobs.

But…thanks to the internet there are literally thousands of ways to earn some extra cash.  There are many online jobs that are just PERFECT for teens.

So if you want your teenager son or daugther to earn some extra cash and finally buy stuff they need themselves.  It is never too early to start them on this path.  I tell my sixteen year old son that nothing in life is easy, don’t expect things to always be handed to him.

If you are a teen, I am sure you will love these 4 online jobs where you can actually make money if you put your mind and energy to it!

5 Online Jobs for Teens

If you have been searching for online jobs on the internet you probably came across many scammers trying to fool you into thinking making money is easy.  That’s not the case today, these sites and methods are scam free.  The catch is you need to pick up one site or maximum two and give it all your time.  You don’t want to spread your self too thin and have nothing to show for it at the end of the day!  With all that let’s get things rolling!

1) Tutor Students Online

If you are at least 16 years old there are many great sites where you can tutor students and earn really good cash, and the best part is you don’t need any degrees or experience in teaching!

You only need to be knowledgeable in a specific subject, and you get paid cash to tutor students that need help win-win.

One great site where you can find students to tutor is It’s a very popular website where teens make real money and you could be one of them.

SameSpeak is another great site I like when it comes to tutoring online.  The site’s concept is very easy and simple.  You can earn $10 for every 30 minutes tutoring session!

If you are at least 16 and English is your first language, you definitely want to check out SameSpeak!

2) Start a Youtube Channel

Making money with Youtube is a long term process that requires lots of time and patience.

If you are looking for fast extra cash Youtube is not for you

But if you want to make some serious money that can even come passively you definitely want to start a Youtube channel!

There are many successful YouTubers, but there are those that failed with Youtube.  However, if you do things the right way you will definitely be successful.  I recommend start with something you are passionate about or something you are really good at.

Check out the below video, this beauty’s channel has over 8 million subscribers and in this video, she’s going to teach you how to start a successful Youtube Channel

3) Write Articles Online

Writing articles is one of my favorite ways to earn some extra cash online. There are many sites that are going to pay you cash for every single article you write.  I know what you are thinking, but I’m not a writer…trust me you definitely don’t need to be a writer to make money online writing.

If you don’t make grammar mistakes you’re already good to go!  But if you do need a refresher, there are so many free programs out there to help. Microsoft Word is still great!

Here are some amazing sites where you can start writing for cash!

  • Fiverr (this is my top pick)
  • Hirewriters
  • ConstantWriters
  • AuthorityContent
  • Hubpages
  • Helium

4) Online Surveys

This is  a great way to make money online. This takes some time, but if you stick with it, this can be a great way to make that extra donuts.  Surveys can take anywhere from to 30 minutes, the more surveys you take, the more money you can make.  Here is four that I recommend:

  • Cashcrate (can make money by doing surveys or referring friends)
  • Survey Spot (cash, Amazon gift cards)
  • My Survey (can be redeemed for both gift cards and cash)
  • Teen Eyes (ages 13 to 18)

5) Doing Reviews

This is the perfect job for teens…just think about it for a minute.

They are the users of so many products…electronics, etc.

So many companies will be happy to hire teens (their customers), so that they can know how well they are doing in the marketplace against their competitors.

Reveiws can be done at home on the computer, smartphone, or tablet.  Examples of reviews includes games (my son’s favorite) aps, or books.

Here is two that I recommend:

  • Review Me
  • Shared Reviews

Although not an online job, the good ole babysitting gig is still a favorite for teens to make some serious cash!

Bonus:  Become a Babysitter

If you are at least 15 years old you can become a babysitter and earn up to $18 per hour.  Many teenagers earn a lot of money by simply babysitting.  Babysitting interestingly enough is an industry that generates over 50 billion dollars in the US alone!  So there is a lot of demand and good money to make from babysitting.  You can search in your neighborhood for babysitting opportunities

Or you can check out these amazing sites that will bring all the best babysitting opportunities!

  • Sittercity
  • Nannies4Hire
  • UrbanSitter
  • SittingAround

Final Opinion

These are some great and very profitable online jobs that are just perfect for teens in my opinion

With these sites, you can literally make as much money as you want as they pay very well!

Before you apply to any of these websites though make sure you create a Paypal account to receive your payments as most sites use Paypal to send payments which is a very easy and simple way to get paid
