Are you looking for some easy side gigs that can bring in extra money? Maybe your regular day job just isn’t cutting it. You’re living paycheck to paycheck and you’re looking for some extra breathing room at the end of the month. It’s life and we all go through some sort of financial issues so it is understandable. But that doesn’t mean that we only have to settle for our primary source of income which for most of us is our day job. We have to have some easy side gigs that can bring in extra money, or if we’re really ambitious, we can start a business to eventually take us out of our regular day job. Here are a few easy side gigs that don’t take too much effort, and can pay very well.
Pet Sitter or Dog Walker
Pet sitting or walking people’s dogs is one of the most effortless and easiest side gigs that anyone can take up. It is a win-win situation. You take the dog for a walk to get some exercise and some air, you get exercise also, AND you get paid. If need be, your clients can hire you to pet sit if they are on vacation or have a business conference that they need to fly out to over the weekend. Why not ask your nextdoor neighbors or other residents on your street if they need your services? It would be great for busy people who are always on the run and don’t have much time to spend at home.
Since you’ve got your foot in the door with some of your neighbors and others who live in your area, why not see if there is someone in their family who could utilize Caregiving services. We all have someone in our families who gets of age and they will need help getting around the house to do simple things that they just don’t have the mobility to do anymore. To add to that, it could be too expensive to send them to a home depending on the family’s budget, so in that case they would seriously consider caregiving services. If they let you pet sit or trust you enough to be around to care for their animals when they aren’t home, surely they will trust you to do things around the house for their senior relatives that could use the help.
The way these three points are set up, you would think that this is a planned out business funnel that could lead into upsell after upsell. Well, the truth is that once you have clientele that trust you to do certain tasks, that trust can carry over and since they are willing to not only let you care for their pets and their senior relatives, chances are that they will also be willing to let you tutor their kids. Kids struggle in school and sometimes fail in certain subjects. If you happen to be good in Math or Science, think about offering tutor sessions to the kids of your clients.
