Blogging/Freelance Writing

Blogging is the most lucrative way of earning money if done right. For newbies or first timers, navigating the web might seem confusing, and creating a website sounds overwhelming. However, if you are determined, you can reap the full benefits of blogging. Many websites offer free sign ups so you can join and display your Google Ads or other banner advertisement. Don’t forget to put in unique and informative content that is engaging and relevant to the niche or topic so that people will keep coming back to your site.

Some of these sites need you to pay a certain amount as joining fee whereas the rest are free sites with the employers paying the site’s fee.

Pet Sitting/Dog Walking

The pet industry is another lucrative industry that is not affected much by the downturn in the economy. Pet hotels, restaurants as well as pet salons are no longer reserved for the rich and famous and are now more affordable. With more people busy with their work or travelling often on business trips , pet owners are looking for people or companies to take care of their pets while they are away.  If you love pets and have a wide lawn or area inside your home, you can advertise for pet walking or pet sitting for a few hours. Students who are looking for ways to earn money can ask pet owners in their neighbourhood if they want to have their dogs walked or advertise that they are doing pet services.
