    Alright. I'm 17 years old, been reading here for at least like 2-3 months now. I'm looking to start and try making money online. I'm currently trying to grow instagram accounts and the thing I can't decide is this:
    I have 100$ budget to invest in IM. If I am able to make money doing one of the things I mention here, I will invest ALL of it to scale or something. The two things are:
    • Shopify + Aliexpress drop shipping (I have a budget of 100$ which I understood isn't close to enough to start. I did want to get some sales and scale Facebook ads but I understood you can't make sales with 5$ daily Facebook ads.
    • Amazon Affiliate review site. I know I can start this now (following meathead's method) without any problems, but I'm sceptical if it can make me enough money to start drop shipping.
    I don't know what to do/decide/choose! Please help me fellas :)) thank you!

    Yeah, don't spend that $100 on ads. You're going to lose a lot of money on ads in the very beginning while learning (probably way more than $100). Learn how to get free traffic first. One of the best hustles I can think of for a teenager is make a site that your friends would be interested in, then learn how to influence them to visit the site, share it, etc. Get feedback from them, grow it.

    Teens are a great audience to monetize because they're so bad with money and make impulse purchases like crazy. For example, if your group were really into skateboarding, make a site about skateboarding, try to make content that your friends would be interested in sharing, then figure out how to put effective affiliate products into the articles once you've gotten some readership. Discuss new decks, trucks, bearings, etc. Try to get your friends to comment with their opinions.

    Don't approach them like this though: "hey guys, I made a new site about skateboarding and I was hoping you could help me promote it." Try a more organic approach like "hey, check out my skateboarding site."

    If they voluntarily share content, then you're doing something right, if not, then you might need to do a bit more work. I know it's tempting to approach this like "I'm almost out of high school, I need to have a million in the bank now!" but it rarely will work that way. Establish a really solid foundation for yourself on how to properly market online. You're already way ahead of the curve by being on here, so keep it up. You don't want to be a one-trick pony in this business.

    Good luck to you man!

    Boils down to how committed you are to learning and earning money online. In my opinion The amazon affiliate route is the better idea out of the 2 because of how much you will learn. If done right you will make money from it 100%
