How to Make Money from Home as a Teen: 8 Ideas to Get Started

I’ve been asked to make money online from home as a teen, but I don’t know where to start. I know that you need to get started before you even think about getting rich, but I don’t know what needs to be done. This article will show you how to make money from home as a teen, step-by-step.

How to get started

Sell anything you have whether its books, eBooks, graphic novels, and some games you got for Christmas, CDs or just about anything else you’re willing to part with, and have something of value to offer. Now, when I say you can sell anything you have, I mean that literally. I’m not talking about selling a guitar online that you used to have in high school (though some people will definitely be willing to pay for it). I’m talking about things that you can sell online that have a really high market value. When I say sell something, I don’t mean buy it on Amazon and then sell it on eBay for 25% more than you paid. You want to sell things that are a lot more valuable.

Social media

YouTube and Twitch are huge for kids right now, so I will focus on those for my first few recommendations. With YouTube, make videos about anything you want, the main thing you need to do is to have something interesting to talk about. The rest is up to you!

Since it is much easier to post something than to find it yourself, I usually make a few videos on a topic that I am interested in at a specific time of the day. Just because you make videos doesn’t mean that you need to post them every day. I post about once every few days. If you can, try to post around 7-8 videos per week. If you can’t, that is fine, you should still make a video a few times per week. I think that doing 10-20 videos per week would be good. Making money from YouTube can be pretty easy.


Blogging has become an incredibly popular way to make money on the internet. There are all kinds of articles and information out there that you can read and learn from. If you are a teenager, you can start to monetize this through blog commenting and affiliate marketing.


Let’s get started. First, you need to be able to handle multiple client projects at the same time. You may not know, or be interested in freelancing as a teen. But if you don’t work as a teen, you probably won’t get hired as a grown-up. So start working on at least one project that you’ll be able to complete. Let’s see if I can help you start. Let’s start with a couple projects that I’m currently working on. Hey Reina! I’m working on a project that allows you to work on a few projects at once. It’s called PerfMax, and it lets you create a home office, manage your projects, and manage your inventory for a home business. PerfMax is totally free for personal use, or $9/month for professional use.


Teaching is very popular because there is a huge demand for teachers. There are so many students and teachers out there that need teachers. There are jobs that need teachers with college degrees. There are jobs that need elementary teachers. There are even jobs that need teachers for “Special Education”. Getting paid for teaching at home Teachers can make money online through Fiverr. You can make an hourly rate or by the hour if you work on a weekend. Don’t expect to make a lot of money. I made less than $30 for a single job. Ecommerce is a good option for teens and young adults, especially if you want to make money doing something that you love. There are a lot of people who want to get a side hustle.

Learn skills

You need to know how to do a bunch of different things. Things like coding, how to make an iPhone app, and even things like creating html pages. If you have never done any of those before, you need to start with an internet browser and learn to navigate. First, I would recommend getting some free software like Google Chrome. If you are a student, a way to get something like Google Chrome is to request it through your school’s libraries. The school library might be the best place for this. If not, look up a place on the Internet where you can get free computers, and use the library’s computer. Learn to code the first thing you should learn to code is JavaScript. You can learn JavaScript with an online tutorial, or if you are in school, you can get help from an online course.

Selling stuff

When I was a teen, I thought selling stuff on EBay was the easiest way to make money. And for the first few years, it was. You could list stuff like, clothes, video games, and movies on EBay. The cheapest stuff you could list would be video games, because they didn’t really have a second use.

The most expensive item would be like a leather jacket, or an iPhone. Most of the time, you can get lucky and get the best price on your item. The only problem with selling stuff on EBay is that you only get 3 bids (out of 100). And the more bids you have, the higher the price you can list it for. So when you’re selling an item, be sure to post it at the highest possible price, so you can get all the bids. Another problem I had with selling stuff was that I bought too much stuff.

Selling your time

If you do not have a job, there is still a way for you to make money from home from doing something you already love. If you have an interest in photography, why not sell your photos online? If you’re interested in marketing, why not become a search engine optimization specialist? If you’re a football player, why not become a professional online fantasy football player? If you’re into making web games, why not market them on Steam or on your own website? All these suggestions come from online advertisements, but the results you can achieve from them can be pretty exciting. You can make as much money as you’d like from these opportunities. Not ready to take the leap? There is another way to make money as a teen: selling your time.


First and foremost, you need to invest in yourself. You have to invest in your career. The more you invest in yourself, the more likely you are to succeed. You can invest in stocks, business plans, learning languages, and other things. Whatever you invest in, spend money on it wisely. Investing in yourself should be one of your top priorities if you want to be successful online. Start an Online Business The most obvious way to make money online is starting an online business. You can start an online business by creating a blog, a review site, or a social media marketing site. Whatever you want to do, make sure that you have an online business that you can sell your products and services to. Starting a blog A lot of teenagers are very good at making themselves online friends.


So what do you need to start making money from home as a teen? You need to learn to sew, knit, crochet, sew, crochet, sew and crochet. You need to use your time efficiently and just start making things. You need to buy supplies and make do. When you are a teen, you don’t have a steady income coming in. I’m not sure if there are many teenagers out there that would be interested in that, but if you are, then learn to make money with your hands as a teen.

As you get older, you can use the skills you have developed in your teens, and make more money doing it. I have seen many adults that didn’t learn to sew, crochet, knit or sew at all, when they were younger, and are now making a lot of money online from home. You can do the same thing. As a teen, I used to make cakes and sold them.
