    Hello everyone!
    I want to start making money online. I've been seeing how CPA works and stuff, but I don't know which CPA network would accept someone who's my age. PPD is a bit difficult and I haven't had the best success with it. I have a website that provides public webmail (similar to Gmail) that I spent a lot of work on, but it's hard to monetize with only 100 users. I even got into Bitcoins and Litecoins and made a small amount. If someone could offer me some advice on making cash online, I'd very much appreciate it; I'm a newbie at internet marketing. The only way I can receive payment is PayPal. :)

    Get your parents to make you an adsense account (or perhaps just give google fake info, be warned though, if they request a w9 form, you are very screwed) and make money with Youtube + CPA/PPD + adsense. I'm sure you can twist that standard method to some degree using a bit of imagination to oomph your amount of success.

    When I was 13 I got a paper round, and fixed peoples computers for money. Don't forget about offline real world stuff.

    not all cpa companies require you to be 18
    theres a bunch of affiliate networks that I'm with and I'm only 16

    so theres definitely a lot of online possibility, don't think age is TOO much of a barrier (because sometimes it might be)
    but usually not

    You can have parent permission from Chitika and other ad companies to run a blog and earn money from it. Also, you got Google search on your side, and a forum full of blackhat promotional methods and services. If you do have the money, you can do whatever the fuck you want in terms of making money.

    My parents think everything is a scam on the internet, so I don't think they're going to sign up for anything. I really don't trust Adsense because they ban so many people! I know what I want to do, and that is make a little money doing some kind of online marketing. Real world stuff just doesn't compare to what you can make on the internet. Anyway, I am going to be searching these forums! Are there a lot of scams on here?

    My parents were the same way, learn how to be sneaky, my friend. You'll have to be transparent to an extent, but some things they won't understand.

    People who are banned from Adsense often had it coming. The premier PPC network in the world has to maintain quality somehow, read the policies, follow them, and you'll never have any problems.

    There are scams here, but the community does a pretty good job of pointing them out, so just read the replies.

    Search the forums well, read the newbie methods for start up money. To make a significant amount of money you'll need to spend some money, not necessarily a lot, it depends on the method.

    I suggest starting on social media, building a website, and LEARNING CODE. You can save so much money and earn money if you understand code. Maybe look at HTML and CSS, and possibly app development.

    But always ask yourself, if I'm a random person, would I click my link? Watch my video? Buy my affiliate product? Find my website? You get the point, most people don't think past that, and never earn anything because of it.

    Good luck!

    You could start just selling the sweat of your brow. Check out fiverr gigs and see if any of them are your kind of service to offer. The upside is little / no investment and learning some skills / getting some experience that you can take into your own business. It always pays to understand all the moving parts in a business.

    Bro, chill out. I am 13 and am accepted into every CPA netword, PPD network, etc; Just make sure when filling out resumes to networks/services, you write with spot on spelling and grammar. Hell bro, I can write your entry forms for free, no catch. I do not require anything, not even any small percentage. Just hook me up on Skype, I am always free to talk. I enjoy building a personal portfolio, so by the time I am 17 or 18, I will have a good five to six years under my belt.

    Yeah man, the fact you started this early is great and you'll have plenty of time to learn the ropes and get the money rolling in. I'd say first thing you should do is get the essential skills down. The essential skills in my opinion would be basic web design and photoshop. These two skills can help you with your own sites and starting to make money with client sites, while you ramp up with seo.

    Learn photoshop and start building some sites to learn the basics of html. These will definitely come in handy in the future when you move on to bigger things.

    The most important advice I can give you is NEVER GIVE UP. Yes, you are starting young - but that means you have an advantage over MANY other people. You may have to spend a lot of hours and lots of effort, but in the long run it will be well worth it. Sacrifice some fun today and you will have 10x more in the future when you are loaded with cash

    Start an article writing service or something similar if youre looking to make money. If youre looking for learning experience spend time finding ways for free traffic, blogging etc. you wont make money for awhile that way but first hand knowledge is invaluable.

    Serious bro, that is actually really bad advice. Chances are, a 13 year-old in this day-and-age would spend all weekend playing PS or XB; I admit that I do, but on my absolute free time. Within July (my first month), I made up in the high $xxx online, while continuing to pull off straight A's in International Baccalaureate. In addition, I wrestled every weekday for 1-2 hours.

    If you do not understand the flow of information, basically, there is no age limit... there is no time limit... friends are still existent... and most of all, there is no maximum success level!
