Hello EF members,
I'm a regular high school student. I had to start out with a type of job where I was paid around 9 dollars per hour. I didn't have any flexibility with my schedule, my manager put whatever time he needed me to come. The people for the next shift didn't arrive on time and I had to wait an extra thirty minutes for them to arrive. There were no breaks either. I was getting frustrated with this type of job because I wasn't really treated good.
I started looking for other methods to earn money. I wanted to earn money for my college funds, so I started looking online. I found that there were many many ways to make money online. I taught my self web-designing/website development and started my own website. I heard about Google Ads and started placing them on my website. My website received around 800-1000 uniques per day. It was on my favorite TV show, and I submitted it to good topsites also. I ended up earning $50 the first month, and $100 the next month. It was nice getting the $150 from Google Adsense. I was content with the earnings I got from the web.
I started developing other websites with different subjects and slowly started earning more. I quit my job once I figured out that I could earn the same amount online, and I could be my own boss too. I had a lot of free time too. I improved my web development skills through forums like SitePoint. Since then I've learned a lot about search engines, cpc ads, cpa ads, and other ways to make money on the web. I've been earning at least $100/mo.
Start your own website, make good content, and advertise. I earned money this way and you can too. The Internet is a place where you can make tons of money, you just need to find a way to make it. The guy who did the Million Dollar Page
was able to earn a lot of money. You can too. Come up with your own idea, do not wait.
