    I tried searching about it on google but did not found any correct answer. So, I just wanna know. What is the legal least age for doing marketing? I mean creating websites, SEO etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: What about a 14 years old kid? Yeah, It may sound like "what" but yes. I am a 14 years old kid who have earned pretty good amount of money via CPA. Ill be starting my big project next month which may bring me thousands of dollars per month so I was wondering if there is any least for marketing.

    My dream is to become world's youngest
    millionaire. Beating "John Koon" .

    Country: US
    Territory: Fashion
    Net worth: $80 million
    Age: 16

    Ashley Qualls

    Country: US
    Territory: Website
    Net worth: $8 million

    Age: 14

    Tyler Dikman

    Country: US
    Territory: Technology
    Net worth: $3.7 million

    Age: 15

    I would like to beat these kids and become one of the world's leading youngest self-made millionaire and world's youngest CEO.

    Some of problems that I think are solved:

    1) Paypal account:
    I already got a verified paypal account that is connected to the bank account.

    2) Bank account
    I already got a bank account, This bank allows kids to register.

    Do you think I may face any other problem?

    I don't think there is a 'legal' age. If you can do it, then do it. There may be some age limits in terms of signing up for a few things or minimum ages for working in certain countries, but for marketing as a whole, I can't see you being arrested for underage SEO.

    Normally, you will need to be 18 years to enter legal contracts. But I doubt anybody will ask and verify your age for working on normal SEO. Some may ask for it if their data is sensitive or age restricted. I know many guys who started out as college kids.

    The only problem you may run into is getting paid. For example to be an Adsense publisher you must be 18 years old. I am sure most places are similar.

    However, there are ways around that (put it in your parents name or a company name).

    The age limits tend to go as standard. ie gambling, 18, well that is in the UK. Porn 18. Other no aged subjects, like Crayola Crayons, I guess there is no age restrictions. Ask Wilson, he is our youngest member here.

    Sounds like your worried about building something great and then it getting shut down because of your age. Do a google search for entrepreneurs under 16 and see what restrictions they had to face. I would say that your only problem will be getting paid as all online wallets and payment processers require you to be 18.

    You have to look at the terms of the cpa company.Some of them, especially adult (duhh), say you have to be atleast 18 years old. Alot don't have an age limit so yeah you can go.

    If your under 18, paypal is a problem. You need to be 18 to have a paypal or you just lie about your age and you have a risk to loose all the money in your paypal. Also payoneer needs 18 plus. If you want paypal (legally) if your between 13 and 18. Ask your parents and they can setup a student paypal. That is the same but your mom can see where the money goes and comes from.

    There is no age restriction for tax papers i've noticed.

    Goodluck man!
    Never to early to start internet marketing & making money

    If you are asking about bank account then I already got my own bank account. Here in my location there is a bank for kids from age 12 - 18. I have a account there.

    WOW! First of all thanks blackhatworld members for supporting me. I mean I really didn't expect everyone would help me with it. I expected that some of your may say "here is a young stupid kid" but none of you said that and this is what really made me happy.

    Thanks everyone for your support and love. :)

    I already got a paypal account (verified). I connected that paypal with my bank account (That bank allows kids to make accounts). So, I don't think I will have problem dealing with it.

    I already got a working paypal account (verified) + bank account (This bank allows kids to make account).
    So, I don't think I will be having trouble getting paid. What are other main problems I may face?

    Hey, just keep going man, the fact that you've made some money makes you more experienced than many of the people here, you've started out at the age of 14, there was a kid nere (LegendaryHacker, with some weird font in his username, hard to track) who started a journey thread at the age of 15, now he's making $200-$400 a day after a few years. You're young, just stick to the plan if you got one and you'll get your goals really soon.
