As a student, you could use a little extra cash in your pocket from time to time. No matter how hard you plan your budget, there are times when you run short on money. Besides, student debt is most likely overwhelming, making you feel anxious and lost. If you are looking for some ways to earn cash during your college years, we've got you covered. A part-time job is the best solution in this case, but maybe delivering pizza is not your thing. Well, here are some ideas that do not imply you smelling like a pizza when you get home. 

Babysitting

This is one of the best ways to make money as a student. The great part about this job is that your services will be needed during the evenings so you will not have to skip your classes. If you don't know where to start you can check online for websites that list babysitting jobs in your area. Choose the ones that imply you working part-time, around 3 hours a day. Some babysitting jobs may require you to also tutor the children, care for the pets or do some housekeeping work. Decide which one is suitable for your needs. 

Pet sitting or pet care

If you do not get along with children but you love animals, you can make money as a pet sitter. You'd be surprised how many people are looking for someone to sit with their pets when they are away from home.  You can find these jobs the same way you would look for a babysitting position. Or you can print some flyers and offer them to people in a public space. You will decide your schedule, price, type of pet, and age. 

Instagram influencer

You've probably heard of people who are earning money with the pictures they post on social media. You can do that too. Instagram influencers, just like YouTubers can reach and influence audiences and earn money from doing it. Depending on the content you decide to create, you can use different strategies to earn money. You can create sponsored posts for brands, you can make a commission selling for companies that manufacture products, or you can sell licenses for your videos and photos. You will need followers for doing it, but not as many as you think. It is important to have engaged followers this is the best and most secure way to buy followers on Instagram. The great part about being an influencer is that if you choose a strategy you don't have to rule out the other, you can use them all. 

Be a photographer

If you are interested in photography, why not making money off it? You can work during the weekends to take photos and to film special events like weddings, parties and even corporate events. 

Another idea is to take fancy pictures and to sell them. You won't need an expensive camera for taking them, you only need inspiration and an account on a platform to sell them. Decide the niche of photography you prefer and explore the options.
