Ways for College Students to Make Money Online During the Summer

r-TEENS-ON-COMPUTER-large570As the school years come to an end, most teens and college students are faced with finding a job that pays minimum wage or slightly above. That task alone can prove to be very difficult as companies are hiring less and less adolescents and hiring more adults to fill the same roles. If and once you find a job there’s a good chance that it will be for under $8 an hour minus taxes. So you’ll be wasting away your summer working 30-40 hour weeks, making less than $200 a week. While I absolutely agree that work experience is extremely important in growing and maturing as a person, I don’t agree that kids should be busting their butts and making pocket change in the process. Fortunately for you, there are numerous legitimate ways to supplement your summer income by partaking in online endeavors. Here are some ways that you can spend your summer downtime and make some sweet cash in the process. All are 100% safe.

1.) Online Survey Sites
By far the best way to make money online without having to spend any of your own is with paid online survey sites. They allow you to fill out easy surveys, watch videos, play games, etc. all while making some easy money in the process. It is extremely plausible to spend 5-10 hours a week on these websites and make $100+. A simple Google search for top survey sites will yield you the best options.

2.) Invest!
If you’re in college now is the time to really start doing some research on potential investments. Bonds, mutual funds, stocks or index funds all offer a great opportunity to further grow your income. The sooner you start, the more experience you will gain and the better off your future self will be. Instead of wasting your hard earned income on a new video game, save $1000, invest it, and possibly double that $1000. Educate yourself. People don’t make money in this life by being dumb. The more you learn, the better off you will be and it’s never too early. I’m able to invest the money I earn from survey sites, and earn thousands each year off investing.

3.) Sell Your Stuff!
Chances are you’ve got a lot of old stuff laying around in your room. From video games to sports cards, there is always someone out there that will pay money for your things. Recently, I was able to sell some of my old Lacoste Polos that I had grown out of for over $240 on eBay. They had just been sitting in my closet, unworn for years and I was able to turn those shirts into some cash for my back pocket!

There you have it. Start making some extra money online today as a teen or college student. Best of luck!
