10 Great Ways for Teens to Make Fast Money
What Do You Think Online Shopping
1. Making Money Online
There are heaps of sites around the internet that will let you sign up and make money for free. Some good and trustworthy ones are:
What Do You Think is another free site to join, once again only dealing with surveys, and the bummer is that you have to be invited to join one. Although this can limit the number of surveys you can do, you also receive discounts on shopping, movie tickets and more just by being a member. It is possible to enter draws and lucky dips for free prizes as well.
2. SwagBucks (Link Blocked from HubPages)
I'm only new to SwagBucks myself, but it is an easy to use, fun site that includes making money by playing games, taking surveys and answering polls. Definitely one of my favorites, being easy to use and free to join.
3. Global Test Market (Link Blocked by HubPages)
Global Test Market is another good site, though not one of my favorites. Only works through surveys. It can be a bit of a pain to fiddle with.
Besides all of these great sites, there are many more than can be found easily. The major thing you want to watch out for, is paying to join. Never register for a site that you have to pay for.
2. Throw A Garage Sale
It may sound like a pretty simple thing, but once you start looking, you'll be surprised by all the old junk you find lying around. As long as you get the 'Okay' from your parents, sell away! Set up a stall at a flea market and sell there! If you don't want to throw your own, discreetly plant the idea into your friend's head, then when they have one, scoot on in and start selling!
Simple as it may be, garage sails are a great way to earn fast money, on the spot with no scams or cons, unless you're in a sneaky mood.
3. Freelance Writing
If you have the skill and the quick fingers needed for writing, then maybe you'd be cut out for this. Freelance writing can come in any forms, from recipes to blogs or stories. Some good sites to check out are https://www.elance.com/ and Odesk. Both Elance and Odesk have a wide variety of freelance requests that can suit any need.
