Comfort. Perhaps the biggest thing that you’ll need to do in order to create a successful B&B is to make sure that your guests are as comfortable as they can be. Remember, they’re paying more for the experience of being comfortable away from home. As a trial, spend a night in the room in your house that you intend to rent and view things from a guest’s point of view. Is the temperature comfortable? Is the bath in the room, or at least a comfortable distance away while still being private? Is the bed soft and inviting? The pillows? Is the bedroom interior design, including colors, soothing? Can you hear household noises, or do you feel that you’re in a world of your own? All of these are important questions to ask yourself, but the answers will determine whether or not your guests recommend your place, or come back for another stay. Think about all the minor inconveniences and discomforts that you’ve just gotten used to over the years, and remember that a paying guest might not tolerate those problems for a night. You may need to spend a little money to fix these issues.

Another good way to make some fast money is to take your old clothes, books, jewelry, furniture that you don’t want any more to a resale store that gives money back for your clothes. Make sure the place you are taking them to is one that does cash back, some resale shops only do store credit for your clothes. But I am a freshman in high school and I do this frequently with my clothes. Resale stores give you from 1/8 to 1/4 of the profit they will make from your clothes. That is a really good profit. I sometimes clear $60-80 off of the clothes, books, movies, jewelry that I take in to resale shops. A good nationwide resale shop to take your clothes too if you are a teenager is Plato’s Closet. They give cash back or will do store credit. They take clothes that are currently in style and also take books, jewelry, shoes, movies, and CDs. Plato’s is also really good about taking name brand items like Miss Me’s and True Religion, and so on.

@Angel – Depends on the kind of traffic, but usually you’d use an Ad network to mediate the traffic so that you can see how valuable it is. Mess with targeting (games, demographics, geolocation, etc) and see which ones produce $$ for you. I’m assuming this is a website? If it’s not then you may have some other options but those will be done directly through advertisers or agencies.
