Best Way for a 17 Year Old to Start Making Money?

by 43 comments
So what is the best way for a 17 year old to start making money on the internet? I'm not too familiar with SEO, right now I have a site that's a GPT website and I'm doing Adsense making about $20 a day, but I need more. Any suggestions?

    Sell information in the form of ebooks, you can hire someone to write for you or you can write it your own if you are a good writer.

    If you are experiencing success with your adsense website, then make 5 more websites and repeat the method.
    20 x 5 = $100

      Good point! It looks like you are doing just fine with your site! One of the principles of success is duplication!

    On other major forums a lot of the people who are underage get started with youtube

    The usual method is making a ton of videos and ranking them using Vagex... Then they use a PPD Platform to monetize (Pay per download)

    If I can back to my past to 17 years old, I will build my lists.

    I think age does not really matter.

    Slazengeer is right. Why don't you repeat the method that is already making you money?

    The same way as the rest of us.

    The internet isn't judgemental when it comes to age.

      Except the new rule on this forum of not being able to post if you're under 18.

      OP: Like everybody else has said, age doesn't matter. I started learning about I.M. and making money online at 16. I'm 19 now and I know a lot more than I did before. Forget about your age and try to do what everybody else is doing. Pick 1 solid business plan and STICK TO IT! In 90 days, with whatever business route you choose, if you stick to it I can almost promise you'll be making money.

      The good thing about online businesses (well, the real, sustainable ones at least) is that once you start making money, that number only grows.

      PM me if you have any questions,

    Definitely focus on building a list.
    And learn how sales 'funnels' work.
    Domaining is pretty easy to make some extra cash if you have good eye for brandable, keyword friendly domains etc.

    17 and a focus to be an entrepreneur...I think you already have an advantage to focus on that.

    There are a lot of home-based businesses out there.

    Have you thought about what you would like to do if you had the opportunity to choose your fate and direction (which you do).

    do you currently have a j.o.b to pay for expenses to start a business of any sort. Even $100 if needed?

    Grounded,

    The top way for anyone to start up and build a reputation in a market is to conduct interviews and constantly provide high-quality information/insights in a community.

    What is reputation but awareness?

    The more people are aware of you, the more "famous" you get. To establish a reputation, you can use psychological association.

    Do interviews with the field experts. Get a skype account, get a recording software, and then it's probably quite low-cost/free to start up with an interview.

    You can find experts at rtir.com, or by searching google. Send them an email, telling them about a win-win proposal where you can interview them, and then help to distribute your name. You can even sell it. Podcast it into a viral blog post. Something.

    People over-rate Google too much. Sure, they do provide high-quality traffic, but most sites I build have 20% of traffic coming from Google. Twenty.

      Nothing stopping them from reading, which was the message propogated in the thread concerning the age rule:

      Enforcing the age limit here: You must be 18+ to be a member

      The thread's still here and the OP can still read and use the information. They just can't have an account here to enact whatever action plan they come up with. Good thing the Warrior Forum isn't the one and only site on the internet to make money with, eh? :rolleyes:

      Read the thread I linked in this post. The user admits to being 17. You have to be 18 to have an account here.

    Write great content for your website. If any post gets viral, your $20 could turn into $200 over night !

    $20x30=$600, it is far good from those who are not able to make a dime online.

    Just through other websites like this you will easily achieve 4 figures with adsense.

    $600x3websites=$1800 not bad at all...

    Make an interview with a successful marketer and package it up and sell it as a WSO or promote it using solo ads

    Social media.

    You meet ton of people at your age use it to your advantage to build up tons of "friends" & other followers.

    If you are making money with adsense then you should build more sites like that to increase your income. You can also sell adsense sites for 10 times what the site makes per month. I have sold a good few in the past. Even if you do go into other areas, if something you are doing is working then keep doing it!

    Cool story bro, I am 21 yet still far from where you are right now, but your story inspire me to make a better tomorrow. I see that you have GPT sites, I think with that experience, you should make your own PPC sites. Keep moving forward!
