I know it may seem a bit out of the ordinary for your teen to be paid from things they do online, but it’s possible. There are companies that look for the input of our teenagers. If you are a parent like me, you probably would jump at any chance your child could earn some money….instead of just asking for it.
Through thorough research I have found that teens can be paid for many things including; testing apps, completing surveys, visiting websites, and more. Of course I wouldn’t expect them to be able to move-out with this income, but it would put less of a dent in your wallet when they decide they NEED something.
Most if not ALL of the jobs I post will require a computer and-or a smartphone, and possibly a tablet. These jobs would not require any ‘special’ skill, many organizations often desire opinions from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences, including our teens. The jobs I list will be for those who have yet to reach the age of 18. I wanted to offer a few quick tips for completing surveys;
- Don’t rush through it, surveys are timed and examined if you get kicked out you will NOT receive a reward.
- You will need access to PayPal if you plan to be paid in cash.
- Be sure to follow instructions and pay attention during the survey, they often ask questions they want answered a certain way…be careful, this is how they gauge whether or not you’re paying attention in the survey.
- Give honest feedback, they keep track of previous answers to see how honest participants are.
- Tell your friends, you often get rewarded for referring others.
