Rather it is a common fact that to enjoy life while travelling we need to have a sound source of income. What if you don’t have that income source or financial support? Relax you don’t need to be a professional digital nomad all the time. Even as a normal traveller you can earn money and continue your journey for years. There are multiple ways to enjoy your life as a traveller while earning, all you need to do is to muster up some courage and put a smart strategy in the place.
Start a Website:
Be a blogger! A blogger is someone who keeps writing on his/her blog and when the blog begins receiving good traffic the blogger makes money by running adverts, affiliate programs, or reviewing products. It is one of the best ways to earn money while travelling. To discover more about blogging browse others websites and study their cases. Choose a niche which suits your interests or hobbies. Initially you will not be able to make huge money with it but as the time passes and you put more content in it, you will get more visitors, it means good money.
Start a Local Job:
If you are visiting a famous local tourist place, there are chances of finding a variety of local jobs. You can work in a motel, campground, restaurant and store or teach a language to locals or join a boat club. These jobs are suitable when you have plans to stick to that place for much longer time. I was in Goa for six months and there I worked for beach shacks to fund my stay and local outings. In Dharamshala – a famous hill station in India – I worked for a Tibetan store and handled customers who used to converse in English.
Freelance Your Services:
There are plenty of service marketplaces through which you can sell your services to clients looking for the work done. Through these portals you can be a virtual assistant, freelance content writer, and ask for SEO or data entry jobs. There are plenty of freelance jobs are available. I had been a freelance content writer for some Indian clients when I was a digital nomad in Nepal for six months.
Though this job is rarely available but you may find it at very remote places, where population is less and tourists don’t flock in around the year. As a house janitor or keeper means you will stay in that house for free while guarding it. At times you can get paid as well.
Try to travel at places which are famous for tourism as there probability of finding jobs is always brighter than secluded places.
