Do you want to know how to make money fast as a kid? Okay, you are in the right place. If you know the secret at this early age then it will be very easier for you to get rich earlier.
I will discuss with you all the legitimate ways of earning money.
I will share the method step by step because you have the right to know and there are so many examples of kid billionaire which you should not overlook. I will tell you about them and show you the steps that you can apply for you too to be successful.
Remember you are a kid and you have enough time which the grown-ups miss. So, apply what I say from today and get success to make money fast. But there is a disclaimer and that to sustain your money flow you must make a long term goal and that will be helpful for you a lot.
Remember, maybe you are a kid now but a few days later you are going to be a teen and then one of the grown-ups. I believe you have the same intelligence as most of the grownups have even sometimes your working effort can be more than few grownups, so, my advice for you is to implement what I say as soon as possible.
Tools you need to make money as a kid:
a) Mobile or Laptop
b) Internet Connection
c) Average Reading and Writing skills.
Step 1: Use Legitimate Survey Sites to make money fast:
To make money fast what you can do is to go to legitimate survey sites. I will give you a list of legitimate survey sites so no need to be worried for now. By going there make some cash. After making the cash just use 10% of the money for your expenditure and try to save 90% of the money. This saving will help you to make more money about which I will discuss later.
At first, I will recommend you Swagbucks. You may get $5 at first by joining there. It is a legitimate survey site and working properly gaining so much popularity and trust. You may earn money from this site by doing the following work.
- Doing survey work.
- Watching videos.
- Searching the web by making Swagbucks your search engine.
- Playing online games etc.
By doing all these things you will get points and later you can convert these points into rewards or cash.
Just go and signup in Swagbuck and check if you can make an extra buck or more than that.
My second recommendation for you to join Survey Junkie if you want to earn some money from survey sites. Yes, according to me it is another legitimate site I trust to make money.
You have to do paid online survey jobs there. You can make an extra $200 a month if you do the job in the right way. There 1 point = 1 cent that means 100 points = $1. But you have to earn at least $10 into your account if you want to cash out.
The task in Survey Junkie is mostly the same as Swagbucks that I have discussed above.
What I like about SJ are:
- Easy to use.
- Comparatively greater reward spending little time.
- No email spamming.
- You can redeem the point into e-gift cards or Paypal.
- Overall trustworthy.
What I dislike about SJ are:
- Sometimes it is tough to get the most profitable surveys.
- Accidentally, some rewards are not added to the account sometimes.
- Every time you have to be qualified for surveys.
So, to test it I will tell you to Join Survey Junkie now and take some surveys to check if it’s worth your time or not.
My third recommendation for you is to join InboxDollars if you love survey sites to make some extra income. You will be rewarded $5 at first if you signup there.
It is a nice website that gives you a chance to earn money from your home by doing fun activities.
My fourth recommendation for you is to join Pinecone Research which is also a survey site that pays huge money to its users by providing some research-based survey tasks.
So, I think you have understood that to make money from survey sites you have to join with more than one survey network. Because then if you find one survey site to pause you for a specific time, then you can utilize your time by another survey site and can make money by completing the small tasks. So, recycle your work from one website to another those I have mentioned here.
My fifth recommendation for you is that if you are really in love with the survey sites then get connected with ClixSense (yesense). This one of the legitimate survey sites that help its users with paid surveys, Cash offers, completing small tasks, or sharing their contents with a new user. It’s so trustworthy and really worth your time.
Keep in mind that these survey sites are not an alternative to a daily job. Those just work as a side hustle and you may use only your free time here. For a permanent source of income, I have other recommendations for you. So, just keep going.
Step 2: Get Paid to Click:
Do you love to see advertisements by clicking on them? Then this job is for you. You can go to Neobux and see the ads they will show you. What you have to do is to click on the ads and in such a way you will be paid there.
Earning from PTC sites is regarded as a good earning method from the comfort zone of your home. But, the only downside I find here sometimes ads takes a little bit of time to load.
But, if you have enough free time then you may give it a try and I have no problem with this.
Step 3: Share Link Earn Money:
This is an interesting way to generate passive income. For example, you have an interesting story-book in pdf format. Many people want to read that book but they don’t have it. So, what you are doing.. you are just keeping that pdf file in an online drive like Mediafire and just shorten the link using websites like Adf.ly or LinkShrink.
Now, if people want to go to download that book using your given shorten link they will see a three or five-second duration Advertisement and after that, they can download your given file.
That’s the idea! When they will see the ad few cents will be added to your account. And see if daily thousands of people go to download the file using your link then cents will be at last converted into dollars and you can earn a handsome amount of money just sharing the link like these.
This was just an idea to make you understand. I think you can do this in so many other creative ways.
A list of other highest paying URL shortener websites is given below.
Feel free to research more on this method of earning money to implement as early as possible.
Step 4: Choose a Topic you love on the Internet to read or Write about:
Okay, from the survey sites I hope you earned some money and you saved that. Now listen to me carefully.
Judge yourself which topic gives you so much interest. Reading which topic you don’t get bored. In which topic you can continuously talk about or write.
Listen to me, for me its “Make Money” topic. I love to write about making money ideas online or offline and I don’t get bored for this.
Perhaps there is a topic in your mind too which you love to talk about, you can chat with your friends hour after hour about that topic because you love to write about that topic.
Listen to me again, chatting with a friend will not give you money but the same writing can give you huge money if you use this skill technically.
Yes, I am telling you about this now. For example, you love to play mobile games like “Clash Royale”. You can talk so much about it. Okay, now give some advice to your game community by writing something about your experience. Share your discovered tips and tricks regarding this game.
Okay, now the question is how can you choose the topic that people will read? I will tell you not to choose any topic that you love only but you have to write about some topic related questions that people are asking to google and searching for answers.
Yes, that’s the policy. Go search this “Clash Royal a” or “Clash Royal b” or “Clash Royal c” in such a way (a-z) using your favorite topic in Google Search and Youtube Search. You will see hundreds of search suggestions and that questions what people are searching on Google or Youtube.
Now, if you can write based on those searched questions or topics by answering and helping them based on your experience then you will get huge writing which has been written by you. Okay, if you don’t have the answers to those questions or problems then just Google about those topics and read or see the first 10 websites or Youtube videos. So, now you have enough ideas to write about.
Now, go to Blogger.com, create an easy blogger website and post your writing one by one according to topic or question item wise. Try to post daily or weekly one writing. Try to be consistent.
If you can continue like this then you will see you are getting so many visitors to your free Blogger website and after one or two months because of so many visitors (also known as traffic) to your website Google is trying to suggest you show ads to your website. Isn’t that so funny, yes that is funny but effective. You can earn money from your website by showing Google Ad from your Google Adsense account. Yes, Google will also help you automatically sometimes to create your AdSense account and earn money.
That is called passive income. Many people even kids are earning money like this and alas, you didn’t know. So, don’t waste your time and try to earn some money like this. Try to implement this idea from today. If you diligently work, then in only two months, you can earn a handsome amount of money. Just find a topic you love and try to write on it by searching what people are searching for that on Google and Youtube by applying my provided method.
- Be careful. Don’t use any image that is copyrighted. Then google will not help you to earn money. Go to Pixabay.com, Unsplash.com, or Pexel.com to use the free picture to your writing in Blogger blog post. Try to take a less kb size image because it will make your free blogger website faster and people don’t have to wait for loading your write. Remember, people hate waiting. So, serve them as fast as possible.
- Avoid copying other’s writing. Don’t do this shameful thing ever. Just write what you understand in your own word. Just try to help the people and google will help you by providing you reward by giving your visitors and Google AdSense ad money. Doing the opposite will punish your website by removing it from the search result and then don’t blame me. Be honest always.
- To increase the traffic or visitor to your website what you can do is share your writing (blog post) to your friends and relatives using your social media accounts like Facebook, Pinterest, etc.
- Try to go to a community like Quora, Reddit, Topic related Facebook group, or Web 2.0 and try to answer people questions regarding those. Try to help people at first by answering their questions. After that when you will be so popular or trustworthy to those communities, try to give related blog post links to your paragraphs of the answer. It will give you so much visitor to your blogger website and you can earn a handsome amount of money.
Another method you can follow to earn some extra passive income as a kid is Youtubing. Don’t worry, you don’t have to buy a camera. Or, even if you have a mobile camera that will do too.
With camera or mobile camera of your parents:
Using your mobile camera just shoot funny moments with your parents and sisters. Perhaps it can be the incident of playing family games with your younger sisters where you were cheating and got caught. Try to make few incidents like these and make videos and then upload the video to youtube.
Share those youtube videos with your friends and family members using social media. Tell them to share too. In such a way, if you get the most sharing of your youtube videos in 24 hours then there is a high chance that your video will go viral on youtube. That means there will be created a huge earning possibility using your youtube channel using Google AdSense.
In such a way, if you can continue funny videos with your friends and family then there is a huge chance that you will be converted into a kid influencer and kid product-related company will try to give you money if you show a little bit of ad of their product into your video. That means you will get money by sponsorship. Isn’t it nice? What you need a little bit of consistent work which can be daily or weekly.
I think there are so many cute cats in your neighborhood. Why are you meeting the cat owners and taking videos of their funny cats? I think the owners of the cat will not dislike you as they are so generous. So, take the videos of those cute and funny cats and post them to your youtube channel by creating a cat-related youtube channel.
Those funny activities of cats will attract viewers for you on your youtube channel and actually who doesn’t love to see cute activities of the cats!
Your channel will be popular day by day. In such a way, you can earn money mostly in two ways. One from Google Adsense and another is from sponsorship.
Companies which sell pet product they will try to contact with you to show their product ad into your pet youtube channel and provide you with a handsome amount of money.
You can do the same by creating a dog-related youtube channel too. Perhaps, this may help you to start your own business as a dog walker. You know about dogs, you have so many videos on your youtube channel about how to pet a dog, so why people will not think of you as a good advisor for their dogs and they will easily give you their dogs for dog walking. And I think in such a way, you can earn a decent income even if you are a kid of 13 years old and want to make some money.
You can earn money by creating Tiktok Videos:
So, if you have a phone with a good camera then why you are not going to be a Tiktoker. Today Tiktokers are earning so much money by getting sponsorship. You can be a Tiktok influencer too where age doesn’t matter at all.
Also read: Can you earn money from Tik Tok?
Without camera method:
So, you don’t have a camera. Ok, that’s great. That means you can make money from home by using this method.
But you need to achieve a little bit of video editing skills using your phone or laptop. In this case, using a laptop computer is better.
Just download and install OpenShot. It’s a free video editing software that you can use very easily.
Now, go to archive.org and find out some meditation or inspiration related voice audio that has CC beside their name. CC means creative common. You use cc audio without any copyrighted problem
Now go to pixel and search some fee videos of sea beach in the morning, sunrise, people exercising related clips.
Now, go to youtube free music library and download inspirational music.
So, now you have an inspirational voice audio file, inspirational music file, and many free inspiration video clips.
You will take these all to OpenShot software and arrange video clips with voice and music. Now see after proper arrangement you have got a nice video by saving those.
Now, upload this video on youtube and share it on different social media. Your videos will get popular and by getting AdSense later you can earn a handsome amount of money later will be a great source of passive income for you later.
Just avoid using copyrighted materials and always use video, audio, image files, or materials having Creative Commons License (CC). This will help you to grow.
Step 5: Get paid for designing attractive business logos.
Yes, you can get paid for designing logos online. But for this, you have to study at first.
Don’t worry. There are so many resources online where you can start. Just Google for how to design a logo and you will get so many useful resources.
You have to about color harmony, shapes, and logo trends to win a logo design contest. And your earning will range from $ 50 to $ 800 per logo design project if you win a logo design contest.
Step 6: Blogging for Business:
I have shown you different ways of earning money as a kid above and I hope you have already earned some money by performing odd jobs like surveying, link sharing, and micro-blogging in blogger.com to gather some money.
But in reality, it’s not your future. You have to build a strong career. And blogging for business comes at first in this case if you really want a strong pillar for your success.
Yes, you have to upgrade your blogging career to the next level and you have to see it as a business. You have to come out from the shell of micro-blogging in blogger.com and you have to create your own professional blog based on real Domain and Hosting.
Though it is a slow process at first and you have to perform a lot of tasks to grow your blog but after passing a period of time it will really return on your investment.
Yes, now it is the right time for investing the money that you have earned online through those odd jobs I have discussed above.
Do you know why?
- Though you are earning some money from survey sites now, there may come a bad time when your account on the survey site may get banned. Maybe they will cheat on you by not giving you the full payment.
- Your PTC site earning can be seized and they will show you such a reason that may seem to you fake logical and painful.
- Your passive earning method of link sharing may get tougher day by day because you will find that many social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest are not accepting your links.
- Your microblogging site in blogger.com may be removed for a mistake of you which you have done without any intention.
- Your youtube passive earning may be lowered by AdSense at any time due to their upcoming policies.
Yes, disaster may come like these and those happen most of the time. Take those normally because you were just depending on other’s mercy. Those were their platforms and they can change their policies as their wish.
And you have nothing to do in this case. But does that mean you will not try to earn money from those platforms?
No, I will tell you will surely try in your everyday life to earn some money from where it is possible and you will surely try them.
But what I am suggesting to you is that you must make your own platform to try to run your business forever and it is only possible when you will build your own website by taking Custom Domain (www.example.com) and Hosting.

An eCommerce business is very profitable if you want to sell your own products online. It can be clothing or fashion items, makeup items, or beauty products. As a kid, you can sell your favorite toy collection on your website by creating a toy store.
Yes, most of the smart kids are doing that. Do you know how?
They are just playing with attractive toys, then making a video of their playtime and uploading the videos on youtube.
Then in the youtube video description, they are just giving the links of their website so that anybody can go to their websites and can buy the toy product from their toy store online.
Isn’t that so cool!
Dropshipping is highly profitable and it will save you from the hassle of keeping products in your house and shipping it to the customers manually by yourself what you generally do in traditional eCommerce business online.
That means you can buy a product at a low cost from its supplier and you can sell the product on your website at a high price by keeping your profit.
The interesting fact here is that you don’t have to keep the product at your house rather you can do this business using just your email and website.
You will get a buying request on your website, then you will buy the product at a low cost from the supplier and you will sell the product using your website to your customer at a high price.
It’s so profitable and most of the teens are making five figures starting this dropshipping business.
You can do this too by creating a Shopify or WordPress website easily.
Gymshark is a million-dollar website that is based on this business model on Shopify website builder. A teen just started this business with his friends in the gym and now they selling gym-related clothing products on their website and earning millions of dollars.

Yes, it’s easy but you have to consider the following things.
You have to choose the best domain and hosting service provider in your budget. Then you have to create your website step by step.
From my point of view if you want to build a blog website like me then choosing WordPress software for the website will be better for you because you will get so many customization option here letter which will be helpful for your blog website ranking on Google later using few white hat SEO techniques. (I will discuss SEO later and no need to think about it now)
What is important for you now is to buy a custom domain and hosting and set up your website there.
Before buying the domain and hosting just check your domain name that means website address is available or not. Just go to https://namechk.com/ and check if the name you have decided in your mind is available or not. It will also help you to find out if you want to check and create your website’s business account on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest later.
I will suggest you choose a domain name that is related to the search suggestions or result in google. Because it will help you a lot later to show your website on the top of Google search.
