Another 10 Unique Ways To Make Money As A Teenager
Hopefully you checked out my other post about making money as a teenager. Some of the younger people reached out so I decided to write a follow up so in this post we will go over another 10 unique ways to make money as a teenager.
You’ve probably heard of Fiverr and it’s just a really easy way to make a little bit of money here or there doing something that you’re good at.
It could be editing some photos, editing a quick video or putting together an Excel spreadsheet for someone who doesn’t know how to do it.
#2 Cleaning Houses
It’s a really easy way to make pretty good money and the easiest way to start is just offer it to your family and your extended family.
It just involves dusting, vacuuming, mopping floors, wiping down surfaces and cleaning glass. Basically all you need is a bit of patience and an eye for detail. You can put on some headphones, get to work and make some money.
#3 Doing Yard Work
You can work in their garden raking leaves, mowing the lawn or doing whatever other little odd jobs that they need done. You’d be surprised how many people will take you up on an offer to do something that they feel like they just don’t have the time to do themselves.
Usually they will already have the equipment, like the lawn mower or the hedge trimmer. You just need to come in and do it for them.
#4 Paper Delivery
This is one that I did when I was thirteen and I made really good money doing it. Usually companies who want people to do paper deliveries will advertise in newspapers or local classifieds.
Someone will come and drop a whole lot of Newspapers and advertisements to you and a whole lot of rubber bands and so basically you have to grab one of each, put it together in a little bundle and then take them around the suburb and drop them in people’s boxes.
A great thing about this is it will get you outside and walking and getting paid for it. I think nowadays you can make a couple of hundred dollars a week doing this.
#5 Wash People’s Cars
All you’ll need is a hose, a sponge and some basic cleaning products. You can clean the outside of their car with some soapy water, rinse it down, clean inside with glass cleaner and some surface wipes and give it a vacuum. That’s pretty much all you need to do.
If you wanted to do a more professional detail you could invest in a couple of products, and then you’d be able to charge a little bit extra. But it depends if you have startup money to invest in the products.
YouTube is your best friend because there’s so many tutorials out there on how to detail and clean cars properly, so that will really help if that’s something that you want to do.
#6 Dog Walking and Grooming
A lot of people want someone to walk their dogs because they just don’t have the time. This is another one where you’re walking which is good exercise and you’re getting paid to do it which is great, and if you love dogs it’s even better.
You can also charge a little bit more if you include dog grooming so if you give the dog a bath at the end of the walk then you could probably charge double, so that’s an option too.
#7 Sell Your Projects on Etsy
I know people who have been selling on Etsy and it’s been a really good source of side income for them. Think of something that you already make that you can profit from.
Etsy is better in some ways then selling at a market because you don’t have the age discrimination of being a young person. So if you’re 13 years old people don’t know that, they’re just looking at your work.
It’s also good because you don’t have to pay the upfront cost of hiring out a stall at some markets, you can just start straightaway on Etsy.
#8 Do Makeup or Hairstyles for Proms or Formal Events
The best way to get started with this would be to do practice runs on your family, your siblings and your friends. Take photos and upload it to an Instagram or a Facebook account.
It’s probably a good idea to have both because you can reach moms and parents through Facebook and you can reach people your age through Instagram.
Make sure you have clearly displayed contact information so if someone wants to contact you to book you for a formal event then they can hire you.
#9 Sell T-shirts or Designs
There are websites where you can upload your design and you can put it on phone cases, T-shirts, pillows, wall hangings, literally anything you want.
This is great because it’s passive income which means they can be selling while you’re sleeping once you’ve done the design.
#10 Teach the Older Generations How to Use Technology
You could show some older people how to set up a Facebook page for their small business or how to use products like Microsoft Office Word and Excel. If you just listen to what some people are struggling with you can offer to help.
