  • In 2010, Robert Nay, who was just 14 years old, launched Bubble Ball, a simple puzzle

  • game (app) with 156 levels, ranging from very simple to really challenging. Expectations

  • were low, but in two weeks, the game did better than anyone would have expected. It generated

  • 2 million downloads from the app store in such a short period, which is phenomenal.

  • That was just the beginning, soon it generated millions more and replaced angry birds as

  • the number one game on the app store, making Robert nay a millionaire.

  • But not Everyone gets such an opportunity to become so wealthy at a young age. However,

  • that does not mean you can't make a lot of money as a teenager. In the age of the Internet,

  • opportunities are unlimited, and here in this video, I am going to show you 7 real ways

  • you can make money as a teenager. You don't need anything except a smartphone that you

  • probably have since you are watching videos and a computer, maybe.

  • You can start making money right after watching this video, so give this video a thumbs up,

  • and let's start with the first one.

  • Stock photography

  • This is probably the easiest way to make even a living online if you are a teenager, and

  • it doesn't matter in what corner of the world you are living. And all that you need is a

  • smartphone with a proper cameraHere is how it works. A lot of channels here

  • on YouTube and other social media are using stock footage to create content. And where

  • do they get the footage: Shutterstock, Freepik, Storyblocks and many more.

  • You can shoot pictures or videos of yourself and upload them on these websites. Every time

  • someone downloads your picture, you get a royalty, a dollar or two, depending on the

  • site. Let's say you upload 300 pictures within the

  • next few months, and you get on average 50 downloads a day. That is at least 50 bucks

  • a day or 1500 dollars of pure passive income every month.

  • This is not a scam. For example, on our second channel, we use Storyblocks and Shutterstock,

  • and we buy this footage to create these videos for you, so make sure you subscribe to that

  • channel right after this video. Of course, if you have a DSL camera, that

  • would be better, but if you don't, a smartphone is fine. If you don't know what kind of pictures

  • to shoot, check out any of these sites, and see what's popular. And create similar alternative

  • images. It might take you a month before you start earning, but you can quickly turn it

  • into passive income even if you stop doing it.

  • 2. Secondly, Shoot pictures for Instagram

  • The Internet is filled with different ways to make money on Instagram, and unfortunately,

  • a lot of them are scams. But here is a simple and legit way to make money from Instagram

  • right now. Spend a couple of days to learn how to take good pictures with your smartphone.

  • And use your skills to take some good shots of your friends and upload them on your Instagram

  • page. And update your bio: I live in this city. If you want such amazing pictures, DM

  • me.  Nowadays, everyone wants cool pictures,

  • but no matter how good the camera on our phone is, most people just don't know how to take

  • a proper picture. And hiring a photographer is expensive. But what if somebody can help

  • me take decent shots for a very reasonable amount, maybe half or even a third of what

  • a professional photographer would charge. I am sure that that there are plenty of people

  • who would pay you for that. You can start messaging the people you know, maybe your

  • neighbors, friends, classmates, and as you get more clients, people would start recommending

  • you. Of course, if you are good at what you do.

  • In fact, if you are good enough, you will have the same clients coming back to you over

  • and over because everyone wants to take good shots for their Instagram every now and then.

  • 3. Use presets to edit pictures  This is probably the easiest method out of

  • this list. All you need to do is to learn a little bit about photoshop. You don't have

  • to buy any course for hundreds or thousands of dollars, there are plenty of free materials

  • here on YouTube. But you have to purchase a couple of presets. A present is basically

  • a bunch of settings, designed to achieve a certain look or style of your photo. Something

  • like a filter, but it is not. You probably have seen that some famous people

  • on Instagram have one consistent style of pictures. They do not edit every detail every

  • time but save these settings and just apply them every time they want to edit a picture.

  • It just makes the whole process much easier and faster.

  • You can buy a couple of these presets that you really find impressive and start editing

  • pictures for a small fee. A preset cost 20 or 30 dollars. That might not be much, but

  • most people do not upload that often on Instagram, so it doesn't make sense for them to buy these

  • presets. Or they are not aware of these presets or aren't ready to pay 30 bucks to edit one

  • picture. And that's where you come into the picture.

  • Open a Fiverr account and start editing photos with these presets for 5 bucks a picture.

  • One image might take you 5, 10, or 15 minutes, which means in just. Few hours you can earn

  • more than 50 bucks a day. Your clients will probably get back to you

  • over and over, so the longer you keep doing this, the more you will probably earn.

  • 4. Edit videos

  • This one is slightly difficult but nevertheless possible for most people, including the teenagers.

  • All you need is a computer, pretty much every laptop can handle adobe premier, which is

  • the leading software to edit videos. It might not be easy to learn the software

  • at the beginning, but after watching a few tutorials here on youtube, you will get it

  • quick. When I started this channel. I literally knew nothing about video editing, and to make

  • my first video, I had to watch a few videos here on YouTube to learn to edit videos.

  • Fast forward to 2020, videos are getting more and more popular. The demand for video editors

  • has skyrocketed. You don't need a college degree to edit videos, all that matters in

  • this industry is the end resultYou might ask if it's so easy, why don't they

  • do it themselves, well, because its time consuming, you have to sit for hours in front of a computer.

  • And if you are a broke teenager with plenty of free time. Why not use that time to make

  • some money. Especially since you are watching this video.

  • 5. Next, trade Trade is overlooked today because so many

  • new professions have emerged. In fact, trade is viewed as something that only grown-up

  • old adults do. But the core of every business is sales. As a teenager, it might be difficult

  • to find a job, but you don't need to ask anyone to buy and sell.

  • You don't need to start with huge capital, start with little things that you can sell

  • to your friends, neighbors, or classmates. Search on eBay or amazon what's popular, what

  • is currently in demand. If you are completely broke. Find something in your house that you

  • don't need and try to sell it. I am sure there are plenty of them.

  • First of all its fun, secondly it's going to make you money and thirdly it's will teach

  • you how business works.

  • 6. Stream

  • I am not really a gamer. I play every now and then random games. However, I have friends

  • and relatives who play literally 3,4 or even 5 hours a day, fortnight, dota, league of

  • legends, whatever. If you are one of those guys who plays non-stop.

  • How about you take a break and do something slightly different, like stream your games.

  • Create a Twitch account and start recording your games or even here on youtube.

  • It might take you sometime before you start earning, but you are going to play anyways,

  • why not record it. People also search for how to pass a mission

  • if they are stuck. Creating mini-tutorials is also an option. I am sure that there are

  • many more ways to earn by playing games but some of the popular ones.

  • 7. Keep Searching in Fiverr

  • If you are a teenager, you are living in the best of times. The Internet has changed the

  • world so much that opportunities are just endless.

  • And Fiverr is a perfect example of that. If none of the things we have discussed in this

  • video inspire or motivate you. Don't worry, you still have got a chance. Just go to Fiverr

  • and look at all the different ways people are earning money, drawing, designing, recording,

  • writing, researching. There must be at least one thing that you have a talent for or at

  • least find pretty easy to learn.

  • Back then, when I was a kid, we had windows XP, and whenever your computer got filled

  • with a virus, reinstalling the windows was one of the options. And back then, YouTube

  • wasn't a thing, and most people didn't know how to do that at least the people around

  • me, but I did. First, I reinstalled it on my friend's computer,

  • he suggested me to others and slowly I started charging for the service. Soon every time

  • someone in my school or neighbourhood needed to reinstall his windows, he would give me

  • a call thinking that I am some kind of a computer genius when in reality its was a simple job

  • that anyone could have easily learnt. The opportunity is always there as long as

  • you keep looking around. And now it is your turn, what is your favorite method out of

  • this list or how are you making money as a teenager.

  • Anyways, give this video thumbs up if you have enjoyed and make sure you hit that subscribe

  • button and the bell besides it. Thanks for watching and until next time.
