You are about to know the most reliable sources for online jobs for teens. Every teenager wants to have more cash in the pocket. This can be true, with minimum efforts.
I will share how teenagers can make money via very simple online jobs.
Before getting started let’s know why doing the job online is better than traditional and seasonal jobs.
Traditional Jobs vs Online Jobs For Teens
As a teenager, you can find traditional old-time jobs like part-time working at McDonald’s, other fast food restaurants or at retail stores. As an owner of these places hires teens for summer, weekend work or after-school evenings. You can also get hired for keeping parks clean during the summer time. But these jobs have limited pay and they are seasonal.
While online the opportunities are broad and you can work at your convenience. That’s why working online is a win-win situation. Now, there are also many scam sites out there, you should have the ability to recognize them. I have listed legitimate websites below but if you ever came across some website that seems a little bit fishy, how would you know if that website is legit or not.
Worry not, before letting you know about the websites where you can make money. I am going to give you the knowledge and tools for spotting the difference between a legitimate and fishy website.
Tool and Information to Check any Website’s Legitimacy
Ever heard of Alexa? Alexa is a company that rank websites based on their popularity. Number 1 is top and as the number increase, that means the website is less popular. Click here to install the Alexa chrome extension. I recommend if the website has an Alexa rank below 40,000, it’s a really good website. You should trust it. Google and Facebook stay at number one or two, as their ranking often fluctuate.
Now it doesn’t a website above the rank of 40,000 is not good. It can be a legitimate website but it ranks low because its new.
