OK. I'm 16 years old, and I have a few hours after school that I can work for a website. (And weekends) Until a few weeks ago I ran a website for someone and I only charged him about $20 a month. A few weeks ago he asked me to shut it down cause he was done with it. I still want to make legit money online, but I don't want to do ptc sites, or something that takes a year to get your account going. (NeoBux) Any suggestions/ideas?

i suggest you stick to mylot..... if you like to write short reviews (100 words) there is a site that pays you 50 credits (50 cents) for a 100 word review of products/people/service.... it only takes less than 3 minutes to write 100 words... they also pay 10 credits (10 cents )for every graded products/people/service and 1 credit (1 cent) for every products/people/service you rate... if you have 2000 credits ($20)--which takes about 3 days to accumulate-- you can request payout via paypal and they pay less than 24 hours.. you can do that every 3days and you have $20 every 3 days... it's the green and white banner in my profile page (imreport) -- under the paypal banner goodluck

You can easily earn 20$/month only from this site, what's the problem? ;) If you want to earn more, you will have to put more time into it.

Yeah I know. I was just woundering if there was a faster/easier way to do this.

To do just mylot is that what you mean "faster and easier way to do this"?... Once you ge tthe hang of it, it will go a bit faster. Don't set too high of a goal for yourself, and comment under other user's on other discussions... Just respond respond respond like it's going out of style! lol!

A faster way would be joining several sites, a survey site if you are from US but that would take some time aswell :)

My only advice is to stick with only a few things online. Mylot is a great site to earn money with and you can have fun. It takes a bit to get to $20.00 a month but this site that you could do that on to replace what you made while helping that one guy. Go around and ask people offline and online if they need help with creating a website and charge them.

True. I can focus all my free time on one or two paid sites like this. Then throw in a little site jobs every now and then. Thanks for the fast, and great reply!

I see that you are in the U.S. How do you feel about playing a dungeons and dragons game where you fight monsters and collect gold that you turn into cash at the end of the month. If you played for an hour a few times per week and you have about 10 or or so active referrals you could easily earn 10 - 20 bucks per month, maybe more. If you know allot of gamers and especially if you can spread the word around your school with some fliers, I bet you could get allot of active referrals in less than a week or two. There is a banner in my profile for for game site. Also if you do join, other places for you to find players would be to place the link in your school news paper but writing a article about the site. You could place fliers on the bulletin board in your local laundry mats, or grocery stores. If you have a blog, you could write about how to use the site and strategies that you have developed. I'm just putting some ideas on the table. But go to the banner in my profile and have a look at the site. Also the site states you can't cash out until you have 10.00 and it is sent to your paypal. Hope this helps.

one more thing, do you have a digital camera. Not your cell phone camera, that won't work. If you have a digital camera, I have a site that might be of interest to you. I'll wait to hear from you.

Check out my website! (link in profile.) As long as you're older than 13, which you said you are, you should be able to particpate in these sites. I honestly am not sure if there are any sites out there than require you to be 18 or older or not,but you'll find that out during sign up. There are a lot of sites out there that pay you to do things, such as surveys, writing, completing offers, etc. I have a lot of these sites listed on my website. If you just read down through the descriptions you should get a feel for what each site offers! One of my favs I'll suggest - squishy cash! Good luck to you :-)

Thanks. I looked at it and I've seen a lot of them before. I've also never seen a lot of them. I'm going to look into them. I just need to find one that accepts PayPal. Thanks for the fast reply!

Well aside from mylot, you can be a freelance provider doing a lot of job like being a virtual assistant, writer, blogger, data entry. You can also make an article and submit to sites that pay for doing it. YOu can make a blog and earn from it. That's what i do and i used to earn from my blog more than $10 a day depends on the task that was given to me and i earn $150 a month for that alone. HOwever task are not abundant always. There are also times that are less task but other online job compensate for that so you will not be zero in a month. Its just a matter of being resourceful if you know how to research online. Hope this helps.

Impressive young SSlimJim! I suggest that you try checking Odesk.com. There a lots of available online jobs there. It ranges from writing articles, web development, graphics design and virtual assistance job. If you really want to earn from online jobs, it is a good site. Just be a little patient. :)
