The advent of the internet has created a whole new bunch of money making opportunities. Did you know that there are numerous ways for dog owners to turn their love for dogs into an online business. Let’s have a look:
Pet industry is booming. In the US alone, the pet industry reached close to $100 billion in 2020. There are so many businesses offering different types of products for dog owners. There must be some that you like (and some that you don’t like at all). You can start using your personal experience (and some research) to help other dog owners make the right buying decision. You can do this by posting reviews. When other dog owners read your review and want to buy one of your recommended products, you will earn affiliate commission. Just make sure that you are not endorsing products just for the sake of it. Affiliate businesses can thrive when they have earned the trust of consumers. So, be honest with your reviews.
You must have come across a product that wasn’t available in your local store and you had to go online, find a supplier, and get it delivered to your doorstep. Have you ever thought of starting an online store like that? What if you could sell some of these hard to find products? It’s actually easier than you think. All you need is to find a dropshipping supplier and start your online store without having to purchase any inventory. Once an order comes your way, you can forward the buyer’s detail to dropshippers and they will ship the products to their address. This way, you will not have to deal with product manufacturing, packaging, inventory management, or returns.
If you want something that doesn’t involve a lot of buying and selling, you can consider blogging. Start writing about tips and topics that will be of interest to other dog owners. Build your audience by posting content on social media. It will take some time before your blog starts to get some visitors but once it’s getting the traffic, you can easily sell advertising slots and banners to companies that want to reach dog owners. Blogging is one of those evergreen money making methods that will continue to work.
If you don’t want to type long articles and posts, consider vlogging. It’s easier to build following on YouTube as long as you are creating interesting content. You can also try another platform like TikTok but YouTube is certainly the best when it comes to building your brand. Soon you will be getting contacted by businesses who want you to review their products.
If you have been keeping dogs for some time, you will have a lot of things that you can teach to new dog owners. You can use your knowledge to create a dog training or dog behavior management source and sell on a platform like Udemy. Best thing about selling the course is the lack of effort. You only need to create the course once and if it’s good, and it can get some good reviews, it will continue to bring a lot more sales without you having to do anything (though it will help if you can update after some time).
