Best Business Ideas For Teenagers Wanting To Make Money Online

The money making bug can hit you at any age and there’s no time to waste when it comes to creating your first big bit of money.

I’ve put together a list of the largest growing online businesses that anyone with some drive and commitment can dominate.

So Who’s This For:

  • Any teenager who wants to start making money online
  • Anyone who desires tried and tested ideas to make money online
  • Anyone who really wants to sink there teeth into a business
  • And finally anyone who likes a little guidance with ideas (a small starter blueprint)

Now I’m going to start this with my FAVORITE ideas first and then continue from there… Let’s get this started!


When done correctly affiliate marketing can be the greatest, most addictive online job out there…

…If you haven’t already heard here’s what affiliate marketing is:

Example: Sites like amazon allow you to become an affiliate, once you sign up you get a special link for each of their products.

If someone clicks that link and buys within a month you get a % of what they spend on Amazon.

That’s one example, but there’s sites that offer hundreds of dollars per sale and all you have to do is promote the product:

Sites that you should become an affiliate on: 


First, if you’re a complete beginner you should try this amazing course called Wealthy Affiliate, it’s free for the first 7 days and will teach you everything you need to know about affiliate marketing.

My Two Affiliate Marketing Rules:

  • Only sell what you believe in. People can sense when you are being false and it never converts into profit.
  • Don’t try to promote things you or a close friend/family member doesn’t know about. Trust me, I’ve tried this and in the end I wasted hours just researching topics I didn’t care about.

So instead get a pad and pen, write your interests, I.E: Sports, Diet, Marketing, Facebook, Drinking, Etc… Then find products in them niches.

Easiest Ways To Make Money With Affiliates:

Now Wealthy Affiliates will teach you all about this, but here’s a broken down version:

There’s three ways to make good money at the start…

…With a Blog/Websites

…With YouTube

…With Social Media

I mix all of these together for my BIG ideas but at the start I always jump in with YouTube.

I do a video review of the product I’m talking about, show it off, explain what it did for me, etc.

I then use my secret ranking recipe, promote it and get it to page one on Google and in YouTube for my chosen keyword (you can learn that method in this $12 course).

I put my affiliate link in the description, sit back and see if it converts.

But… That isn’t good enough. You see people are smart, they don’t like affiliate links so what I do is have a link to an email opt-in, I then say in the video ‘get my free quick how to guide’ and then once I get their email I can send them over the link and start promoting through emails.

EXTRA: The above sounds difficult but it’s really easy to do, just use Aweber and Optimize Press and if you don’t have a clue what you’re doing you can either message me or just use your affiliate link instead, it won’t convert as much but it’ll still work until you have enough to buy and learn about the software above.

Fast forward 3 weeks, if I’ve made a profit I setup a blog, a great theme is ultimate Azon, I then do some basic SEO and keyword research using Long Tail Pro, write some articles and release.

I connect it with the YouTube video and what I find is they both help each other generate more profit and traffic.

At this point I have a complete money making system and I usually let it sit and go and repeat this process all over again.

Sometimes, I’ll do social accounts if the niche calls for it and occasional I’ll promote links on there to build extra profit.

STOP: If that was too complicated please trust me when I say go and try Wealthy Affiliates it teaches you everything you need to know in a much simpler format.


Now this method is my favorite, it incorporates affiliate marketing and can be a lot of fun if you pick a niche you enjoy writing about.

First: I have a service, where I (Oli from 101geek) will make you a full running blog, with SEO, logo, domain, super hosting and my ultimate money making guide. Now I can only offer a few of these per month because they take a long time to create and come at a BARGAIN price, this is really just to help people who can’t afford to pay $1000 for a blog.

PS: For limited time get $25 dollars off making it just $150 starting price by poping your email in here.


The best way is to create an affiliate blog and how I do this is I write down all the things I enjoy, then use Long Tail Pro to find great keywords and then go on Click Bank pick a product, buy it and test it.

After this I create a blog and I do some simple articles using the keywords I found on Long Tail Pro, usually Reviews, Top 10’s and How To articles.

Then I release, do some basic SEO, sit back and see how it goes…

…Here’s where it gets extra juicy, above is a basic affiliate blog but if you’re clever you can find a niche that allows for Super Affiliation:

Example: I create a fitness blog, I then find 5 products, diet, home fitness, at gym workout, womens fitness, creatine/protein supplement.

I can then create a wealth of reviews, how to’s, advice and list articles all based around these products, that way if I put money into SEO I know I can make it back in numerous different ways.

There’s two rules:

  • 1. I always recommend looking for the best product and buying it, if you don’t have enough for 5 products, start with one and then once it’s earning money get another and so on.
  • 2. Only have 5 – 10 products max, if you look at other bloggers you’ll see that they earn 80% of there income from a max of 5 products, so be direct, specific and don’t over promote to your audience.

Examples of people who make money with blogs: 


We all love YouTube and I can beat that everyone reading this has at one point tried or at the very least thought about becoming YouTube famous.

I can also bet that it didn’t work and you ended up giving up? Or at least giving up hope?

Well I’ve spent the last few years studying YouTube, looking at what content works, how to rank it and how to generate crazy amounts of views.

Doing so I’ve learned ways to get YouTube videos on page one Google and YouTube within a matter of days.

I’ve also learned how to make crazy amounts of money without doing anything.

Now I’ve done a Youtube course that teaches you exactly how to get to get views, subscribers and rank everyone of your YouTube videos on page one. This course is quick and should only take 30 minutes to finish but it costs $12… This is down to me trying to lower how many people know this method as I want it to be as effective as it is now for ages.

How does it work? 

You use the details in the course and then have two options you can create a channel like ‘fail army’ where you gather clips from around the internet and make compilations, this basically involves you doing no content creation and you can start right now.

Plus the videos generate thousands of views and when mixed with my course you’ll be AMAZED at how many views you can get in just a few days.

The next way is you use the content ideas I give you, create your own channel and make reviews, challenges, how to’s and advice videos and rank them.

Now this takes more work but when done with the right product can give you thousands of dollars income per month on autopilot.

Plus the content is yours and will be yours forever.


I’ve done a few articles on re-selling and I get asked all the time if it still works… And the answer is YES!

All you have to do is find a good service that’s cheap and reliable on a site like Fiverr and then re-sell it on your own blog or on another service site like Freelancer.

The easiest example of this is with logo design, all you do is go on fiverr, find 2 great logo designers, buy 5 – 10 logos, then setup a quick website (I can help you using my website service), add the logos you bought to your portfolio, then charge $15 per logo, promote the service on Facebook and use SEO to boost the site, plus other ad buying services.

Then once you get an order just go on Fiverr, buy from your seller, once done send to your client and voila! you’re making $10 from doing nothing.


  • You can hire someone online to send the logo to Fiverr and back to the person who bought your service after it’s complete for almost nothing, and this makes the whole service work on autopilot.
  • Make sure you get a designer who offers unlimited (or at least 5) revisions just in case your client is a little difficult.

Don’t just do logo’s you can use this method with any service, get creative and give it a try.


Right now people pay money for ‘piece of mind’.

And social media always has a way of making people feel like they’re missing out…

…Whether it’s the fear of missing out on the latest Twitter or Facebook trend, or the fear that they’re doing something wrong and missing social media followers… It’s always safe to say there’s a big load of fear.

So if you’re a teen I have no doubt that you know how to use Facebook, Twitter, Google + and just about any other social network. I also have faith that you could learn any new platform  if needs be.

So why don’t you sell your service? There’s plenty of older people who aren’t as net savy as you who’ll pay for peace of mind that they’re not missing out and for someone to take complete control.

Now again this method is simple…

You get a tool called Hootsuite (recommend a pro account and get a 30 day free trail using that link), you then contact local businesses with basic social media. You then offer them a social media revamp, you’ll give them:

  • A complete new social media look (cover and profile pic change).
  • You’ll take full control of their main social accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.
  • You’ll post 1 post on each per day.
  • You’ll keep them up-to-date on all the latest social media networks (so they can be the first to join).

You then say how this will boost their rankings on Google and help them dominate social media.

You can charge $50 – $300 per month depending how good you are at social (some people even charge thousands but that’s for people who know how to advertise on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube).

PS: For cover and profile picture design you can either use Fiverr or design them yourself (depending on your skill level).

Breakdown: You start selling this service for $150 per month, sign on 10 clients in your local area and you’ve just made your first $1500 bucks that renews every single month,from around 2 hours work per day (PS: this work can easily be delegated to someone else so you do nothing and earn the money on autopilot).


People do the same method talked about above but with SEO, now it’s a little more advanced and I wouldn’t recommend just anyone getting into it. But if you know how to get people ranking online there’s no reason why you can’t charge companies in your area $300 per month to get them Google Rankings ;).
