Last time on my post on blogging for teenagers, I mentioned some ways for teens to earn money from blogs. Today, I’m gonna make an overview on them again as well as add in some new methods to spice things up a bit.
Let’s get going then !
1. Place Advertisements on your Blog
Let’s start with the basic. When people think about make money online, people think of ads. Placing advertisements on your website is the simplest way to make some money online. Pretty much set it and forget method.
Just try placing a few advertisements on your blog with AdSense or any other ads network. You should be getting a stable source of passive income, provided that your blogs actually have visitors.
2. Use Affiliate Links
If you’re a teen that is keen on a specific niche when blogging, the chances are that you’re gonna find something you want to promote to your readers. Try and search for affiliates programs related to what you’re promoting. You’ll both make some extra money. as well you readers will have some things to try. Everyone will be happy 🙂
It can either be a subscription to read your blog or as a more popular approach, a subscription to access premium contents such as downloads, special posts, etc. This can be a nice way to always have a passive source of recurring income. However, your blog will need to have a very large reader base as well as providing really good resources.
4. Offer Guest Posting
Once your skills are good enough, you can consider writing for other teens or bloggers for some extra bucks, also gaining some readers and credibility. It’s pretty a good way to expand your blogging circle too. Other bloggers linking to you will help greatly on getting you more visitors. You can expect around 40$ per post or more, depending on your skills.
5. YouTube Video Blogging
Trying out video posts can be a nice change of style for both you and your readers. Not to mention, you can also earn money from it. The same rules apply whether it’s normal blogging or videos. You need lots of visitors to make a decent amount of money.
Another thing to consider when making some money with YouTube is that you’ve just expanded your blog. People can now find your contents through YouTube, not just SE but also videos. What’s more, they tend to be shared easier.
Last but not least, us teens love watching videos. To some extend, making them might give you a feeling of an interesting blogging.

6. Sell Your Blog
This is not a method I’m really fond of since a blog is not just about the money. It’s about your readers and your effort too. Nevertheless, there are cases when blogs are made just to be sold to a more suitable owner. That’s why this is by no mean bad or anything.
Pick a niche that you think you can make a good blog with and well, make a blog. Write on it. Get a decent amount of visitors. Then sell it to one needing it, usually a business owner in that niche. This can be rather time-consuming but the payoff is really great. Some blogs can be sold for thousands of dollars, depending on the niche and the blog’s quality.
You are teen with a decent amount of free time and creativity? A good way to try !
7. Promote your own Products
If you’re really into selling, making products of your own can be a wonderful way to kick-start your income. You know. the best place to start promoting is no other than your own blog.
If your blog is good then people would think that your products are good. Well, they should be. If your first product is successful, create another one and keep going. You’ll soon find yourself having a buyer base that would make you money for a long time.
And a lot of teens have succeeded in promoting their own products.
8. Use Link Shrinking Services
If your blog shares download links or just share a lot of links in general, utilizing link shrinking services like AdFly can really help with passive income. I have seen many games download sites using this method nail to great success. Why? Games are generally heavy thus need many links to download. Also, games are downloaded daily. You can imagine how much money the owner makes everyday.

9. Build an Email List
Building an email list can both help your readers get access to your to your post easier, as well as help you build a great buyer base for you to promote.
The inbox is the best place to send offers. If someone has already given you his or her email address, rthe chances are that person would buy stuff from you.
Teenagers in general shouldn’t have many things to sell on a daily basis so this might not be optimal. However, give it a try if you’d like.
