If you are responsible and love animals, consider becoming the neighborhood pet sitter or dog walker.

Even though many people are working from home right now, many parents are still looking for babysitters. Offer to help entertain their kids as a fill-in for recess or P.E.

3. Virtual Tutor 

Become a virtual and help kids with their homework. Look into teaching English!

4. Errand/Task Runner

Run errands and tasks for people in your neighborhood (like getting groceries for an elderly neighbor).

5. Host a Virtual Garage Sale

Have some items around the house you can sell? Host a virtual garage sale and sell your items online.

6. Blogger/Vlogger

If you enjoy writing or being on video, use those skills to start a blog or vlog. You won’t earn money right away, but if you get enough followers, you may be able to land some sponsors in the future.

7. Social media assistant 

Do you love social media, keep up with all the latest trends and have mastered all the apps? Become a social media assistant and help people step up their social media game, sell products, or increase their number of followers. Maybe your parents have friends with small businesses, start there.

8. Photographer or Videographer

Nowadays, you don’t need a fancy camera to take beautiful photos and engaging videos. If you know how to capture great video footage, have an eye for photography and are good at using editing software, photography and videography may be a good fit for you.

9. Website designer

Wordpress, Squarespace, Wix and Shopify are the most widely-used website design platforms. If you can master how to create websites on any of these platforms, then make money by helping other people build their websites.

10. Website tester and online survey taker
