Tips For Making Money With Technology As a Kid
Guest Post By: Steven Cooper
Today kids understand technology and how to use it faster than ever before. When I was a kid, I remember playing Oregon Trail and Stratego on the computer and thought it was pretty cool. (I still think Oregon Trail is pretty cool.) Computers were very basic, and the Internet wasn’t around yet. Today, before the age of two, kids are experts on ipads playing games learning the shapes, numbers and colors. It is no mystery that kids are more technology inclined.
Kids can use these skills to make money while they are young. By understanding technology at a younger age, they are able to develop skills to create products and services. This will help them make extra money to buy the latest technology that they want. Below is a list of 19 products or services that kids can do to make money.
1. Blog- Create a blog on a topic that interests them and put Google Adsense on it.
2. YouTube- Set up a YouTube channel and make funny videos. Get paid from ads being displayed on videos.
3. Podcast- Start a podcast about something they enjoy and get sponsors.
4. Niche Website- Create a niche website and earn money with Google Adsense, affiliate links and digital products.
5. Online Product Reviewer- Create a review website and talk about the latest and greatest product in an area of interest.

18. Video Rental- With blockbusters gone and Redbox not always having the shows we want to watch, it creates a great opportunity to rent out your DVDs to friends and neighbors. Digitize them first.
