As a teen, being able to earn and spend your own money is one of the most rewarding feelings. But, it's likely that you'll be met with some resistance when it comes to finding a job; after all, you are only in high school. That's where the online money-making industry comes in. Imagine being able to earn hundreds of dollars simply by spending a few hours doing easy tasks on your laptop. Here are our picks for the top three most efficient online jobs for teens looking to make money.
1. Online Retail
If you have a passion for design, art, or entrepreneurship, designing and selling your work can be the best way to get your work out into the world and make money at the same time. Many websites such as Cafe Press allow teens older than 13 to design and sell their own posters, mugs, bags, clothing, jewelry, and more!
2. Freelance Blogger
If you have a passion and talent for writing or journalism, becoming a freelance writer for online blogs is a fantastic way to better your skills and get a steady income. Although unlike online retail, you'll have to find a writing gig at a particular platform, it's still a very worthy choice. Check out UpWork, Fiverr, and FlexJobs to find freelance writing gigs for teens over the age of 13.
There's always been a huge demand for tutors and supplementary teachers to help the struggling to learn difficult concepts. Becoming a teen tutor is a wonderful way to help your peers that are having trouble with concepts you've already mastered and get paid too. Check out websites like Kaplan that allow teens to tutor without requiring a Bachelor's Degree.
