Want to earn a little money, so you can either save a bit or pay back some debts - well these could be the jobs for you.

1. Walk dogs for pet owners

If you enjoy spending time around dogs, becoming a dog walker is a great way to earn some extra cash. You can make this business as simple or as elaborate as you want. You could start with talking to your neighbours to see if they need their dogs walked. Or, if you prefer, you can advertise your services and take on additional customers. You can even reach out to local businesses that offer pet sitting services to see if they need anyone to walk the dogs that they are caring for. You can maximise your earnings by walking more than one dog at a time since you get a specific hourly rate for each dog you walk.

2. Allow your home to be used in films.

3. Rent your parking space.

There is a common misconception that only mansions or other elaborate homes are used in movies or TV shows. In fact, however, many productions require the use of a normal home. One unique way of making extra money is by allowing your home to be used in films or on television. Typically, production companies will pay a daily rate for the use of your home. The amount of the payment depends on whether the property is being used in a television commercial, on a TV show, or in a movie. However, at the upper end of the scale, you could make as much as £3,000 per day. Enough for many people to pay back a large portion of debt according to Money Expert.

There are location agencies out there that provide movie and TV companies with lists of available properties. Registering with one of these services is a great way to let production companies know that your home is available.

4. Make your pet a star.

5. Offer tutoring services.

If you have a pet, you may be able to put them to work earning money for you. Advertising agencies, film production companies, and television producers are always on the lookout for pets that have star power. If you have a pet that is well-trained and that has the right look, they could become a celebrity, earning you a lot of money in the process.

Typically, companies like to work with animals that have professional training. However, you still may be able to get your pet selected if they have a unique look or any exceptional skills. Be aware that there are people in this industry that try to take advantage of unsuspecting pet owners. Avoid working with agents who want to charge you a lot of money up front to provide representation for your pet.

If you have skills that you could share with someone else, you could get paid to become a tutor. From teaching math to showing someone how to play a musical instrument, you could help another person gain a valuable skill simply by sharing your knowledge.

Tutors usually get paid quite well for their skills - particularly if they are helping children study for upcoming exams. The easiest way to find clients is by registering with a company that specialises in connecting tutors with people who need their services. You can specify which areas you are qualified to provide tutoring in. If the types of skills that you have to offer are a bit more unusual, you can also list them in classified advertisements or on bulletin boards. The best part about earning money this way is that it can be extremely rewarding from a mental, emotional, and financial perspective.

Even if you don't have training in a traditional field, don't feel like this option isn't a good fit. Everyone has a skill that they can teach to other people. From photography to dancing, you may be able to put your skills to work to earn extra money on the side.
