    Hello, I'm 16 years old and I want to get into affiliate marketing. I was wondering if that is to young, I have a paypal account that could be used but it's under my dad's name.

    Is it a possibility for me to create sites marketing products to earn money at such a young age?

    You are what you think you are....
    You think you are too young? Yes you are!

    You think you are too old enough for the job? Holy Shit you have been alive for 16 years in this world, surely you have enough brains to implement these marketing plans.

    Nope, its the perfect age to start. The trick will be signing up for Aff networks. But if you just want to run with adsense, you shouldn't have any problems.

    Just don't let your grades suffer and remember to go out and have fun... this shit can be addicting.

    I am young, 1 year younger than you, I'm 15.

    Many people are amazed when they find out that I'm 15, but I personally think age doesn't matter, 15, or 35, it does't matter online. It only matters for offline marketing where you actually have to meet the clients, but I don't do that that. A person who is 35 doesn't have a lot more advantages than me, but in what I do, there are no advantages in age.

    Don't listen to others, I've had 1 guy tell me that I should stop and concentrate on other stuff, I don't listen to him, I actually don't care.

    If you love IM or want to have your own money, "JUST DO IT"

    :)

    P.S I started when I was 12 or 13.

    There are some people here as young as 13, man, so of course you can. You can get checks cashed out to your name usually, or you could just open your own PayPal account. Unless this is against your parents' rules? I would just talk to them about it if so.

    I started my first buck when I was 13, and it was like 20 cents for a 100 word article :D More than enough for someone who is going to earn money online and it is worth 2 tea here.

    Now I see 13 yr old hiring article writers. WTF :D

    Now its up to you to choose if you are too early to get into. I would say you are late already.

    Not too young but don't go at it like crazy, your young and should be stress free and enjoying your childhood 16 is a great age to be. To many younger people just stay home on the internet all day and night, don't be like them :)

    Thank you everyone! :)

    I'm definitely ready,

    I wasn't sure because of the payment methods mainly, I can most likely get my own paypal account (I know it's not against any parental rules, it may be a pain in the *** for them though so it might not happen any time soon).

    LukaB~ Inspiring in the least. ;)

    Again, Thank you everyone!

    Thanks, I use my brothers Paypla (UK Registered) so that's how I have paypal and I'm sure many use their siblings Paypal (at least that I know off). It won't be a pain in the ass for your dad.

    In everyday life, you sure see people thinking less of you because of your age. Well, on the internet, numbers can be faked. There are litteraly no limits but those you set for yourself!

    LukaB~ Could you by chance PM me or post back here (I don't have 15 posts yet so I can't PM you OR quote you... >.>) how I can set this all up?

    I can't cash checks and I don't quite know what sites I should be using for this nor how to set them up for paypal deposit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
