How Iowans Can Make an Extra $10,000 Off Their Dogs
First off, I'll start by saying that I think making a Facebook or Instagram page for your dog is pretty dumb.
I know several people who run three or more Instagram accounts -- one for themselves, a fake Instagram (or finsta), and one for their dogs.
I don't understand the desire to be on that app (or any others) any more than I truly have to. We've got a big world to experience, and there's much more to do in this life than spend four-plus hours a day on our phones or in front of screens.
Anyway, rant over.
By the numbers, I may just be a crotchety 26-year-old who doesn't want to get with the times, because you can make a solid chunk of change by using your dog's social media accounts to promote pet gifts and accessories.
Yappy.com, a website that makes personalized dog gifts, is looking for a 'Chief Fluff Officer,' to become the face of the website. The pay to make your dog a model for the site? $1,000 a month of Yappy products and/or agreed-paid assignments. In other words, you could make an extra $10,000 this year just from taking some snapshots and videos of your dog or dogs.
Yappy lists the following as key responsibilities and attributes you and your pup will need to have:
Look ‘furbulous’ and be camera-ready, groomed, and ready to go at the flash of the camera!
Be a content creator’s dream to work with – the hired Chief ‘Fluff’ dog should be comfortable showing off their best poses, sassy struts, tail wags, tricks and expressions
Confident jumping on the latest TikTok trends, shooting a reel and taking photos
Create amazing content for Yappy featuring your latest haul of personalized products, designed just for you, with your own unique icon created by our team
Must be socially savvy, with an established social media presence and at least two active social accounts (to include Instagram and TikTok)
A fluffy and fabulous appearance is advantageous but not essential!
