Internet Marketing for Teens

Can Teens Make Money Online?

When I was a teen, there was no Internet and I didn't have the opportunity that kids have today. If you are a teen now in 2008, you have have before you the means to start making money on your own and to start building a business. There are so many ways for teens to make money on the Internet and to start learning and building something that they can profit from for the rest of their life. And they can start it all for free!

Now I know kids today are totally mesmerized and wrapped up in video games and all the cool technology on that front. I know they only want to do one thing and that is sit in front of their TV with their latest game. But let me tell you that you can get a big rush from making money too. If you are someone who likes an adrenaline rush, just wait until you start making sales and see some real money come in. You can gather all the fake gold and money you want in video games and become a powerful player. But once you turn that game off you are back to reality and you can't do anything with your high level character.

But if you start playing the real game of Internet marketing, you can be making real money. Getting an email from Paypal or wherever saying that you just made a sale is every bit as fun and exciting as a video game. And when you start making multiple sales in a day, the adrenaline rush you can get is incredible.

The great thing about the many ways to make money on the Internet is that it is free to start and you can go at your own pace. What other job or business can you say that about? None that I know of. You don't have to pay for employees, inventory, a store, or anything else that makes a real brick and mortar business so hard to succeed at.

You can keep adding on to your business as you have time and energy. As I mentioned above, those are the things I would probably have right now if I had started sooner. If I had had the chance to start as a teenager there is a good chance that I would never of needed to get a real job. I would have just kept on building and building my "online assets" as I am doing now.

Unfortunately, if you are a teenager, you may have to get assistance from your parents in signing up for some affiliate programs as the age requirement is usually 18. You may have to get them to sign up in their name. But if you are serious about learning and making money, I would think that most parents would welcome an enterprising teenager and be willing to sign up. There are many ways for teens to make money on the Internet but you will probably need to join these free affiliate programs to be successful.

There is no better time to start than right now. Building your own "online empire" will not be easy and will require dedication and hard work. But once you start learning, having your own ideas, and start making money, it will also become fun. You might even be able to turn it into a work from home jobs. Teenagers have so much creativity and learning potential that starting young at this is a great advantage. If you start now and build at your own pace, there is no telling where you will be in just two or three years.
