Online Researching and Writing: A Great Way for Teens to Earn Extra Money


If your teenager has a special interest in something or is an expert on something, the perfect way for them to try to earn money is through blogging. He or she can learn how to blog by taking an inexpensive tutorial and then take it from there. Once he or she has learned how to set up a blog, the next step would be to learn how to advertise on that blog.

  1. Research – Whatever topic you choose to blog about, make sure that you are well versed in that subject matter. This way, when someone happens upon your blog, you will have a host of information that they will find useful.
  2. Think outside the box – If you have a blog about technology for example, do not just gear it to young people. Keep in mind that older people really do want to learn about technology, but most of the blogs out there are so technical that these older folks turn away. Keeping it simple and thinking about a broader audience is one great way to expand your audience.
  3. Keep up with the trends – Try to remember when blogging that it is important to keep up with the trends. By staying one step ahead of everybody else, your blog will be the first place someone will turn to.

Article Writing

If you have a teen that is proficient in writing, then the internet is the perfect resource for them to bring in a few extra dollars. There are so many individuals as well as companies looking to hire people to write for them. Many individuals do not care for writing or simply do not have the time.

Therefore, a great match for your teen who loves English is to find those companies seeking to hire.

Web Master

There are so many new web master businesses out there because finding employment outside the home is so difficult. This setting up of new internet businesses is creating many legitimate work-at-home experiences.

One way is to have your teen take a tutorial or an online class on how to become a web master. Of course, it does not have to be a college course; a simple how to class will suffice. Once the art and skill of web creation is learned, a teen can offer their expertise to local businesses.

By starting out small and working their way up, a teen can find many creative ways to make money using the internet.
