10 Tips To Make Money While Traveling

1. Become a Virtual Assistant

Tips To Make Money While Traveling: Become a Virtual Assistant

A virtual assistant is someone who works from home, providing administrative and personal support to clients. This can include anything from scheduling appointments and managing calendars, to typing up notes and creating presentations.

A virtual assistant’s job is flexible in that it allows you to set your own hours—you may work while traveling, or during regular business hours when your clients are in their offices. A potential downside is the need for constant availability via phone or email. If you’re looking for a more traditional 9-5 job, this might not be the best option for you!

As a virtual assistant, you’ll earn around $20 per hour on average (though some charge as much as $80 per hour). You can also choose to bill by project (e.g., $200/hour) or monthly retainer ($1k/month). It’s best practice to have clients sign an agreement detailing what tasks they expect of their VA before accepting any money from them; this way there are no surprises down the line about what exactly was expected when the project began.

2. Freelance Writing

There are a variety of ways to make money as a writer, depending on your skill level and what you want to do. Some work from home, some in coffee shops and others from their bed.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Write articles, blog posts and ebooks about topics that interest you.

You can do this for yourself or for companies in your niche market. If you’re a travel expert then write about traveling the world! If not, just write something else related to your interests – we all have them!

Look for places that offer paid writing gigs online if they pay per article (or per word) rather than by the hour because it’s easier to calculate how much money they’re paying out each month.

Other tips you can use:

There are several ways to make money with freelance writing, including:

  • Writing for online publications or blogs that pay for content.
  • Creating and selling your own e-books or courses on a topic you are knowledgeable about.
  • Offering writing services, such as copywriting or resume writing, to individual clients or businesses.
  • Building a following on a personal blog or website and monetizing it through affiliate marketing or sponsored posts.
  • Participating in writing contests or submitting your work to literary magazines that pay for accepted submissions.

It’s also important to have a strong online presence to market your services, such as a professional website or social media accounts. Networking and building relationships with other writers and industry professionals can also help you find new clients and opportunities.

3. Make Things to Sell

Make Things to Sell. Yes, this is the old standby, but it’s still a good one. You can make all kinds of things from home that you can sell online or in person—from jewelry and furniture, to clothes and bags. If you have special skills or talents that someone wants to pay for, now is the time to use them.

Use Your Skills for Work Opportunities as a Digital Nomad or Traveler/tourist-based entrepreneur: As long as there are tourists who want something interesting to do while on vacation (and who aren’t afraid of getting their hands dirty), there will always be work opportunities for digital nomads who know how to make them happy and tell their friends about it when they get home!

Start an Online Business: The internet makes it possible for anyone with an idea, some technological skillz, and $10/month hosting service get started making money right away with an ecommerce website (or create their own blog). While I won’t say that starting an online business is easy (because it isn’t), but if done right it offers many more possibilities than any other type of freelance work available today due largely in part because people are spending so much time online nowadays anyway.

4. Become a Blogger

If you’re a writer, this is an easy way to make some extra cash while traveling. If you don’t have any writing experience, no problem! There are plenty of sites where you can get started blogging—from Blogger to WordPress, there are many free options available.

Once you have your blog up and running, the next step is to find a niche. Not everyone will be interested in the same topics as others, so it’s important to find something that speaks directly to your readers’ interests and needs. After all, if they aren’t reading what you’re writing about on a regular basis then why continue?

Once people begin visiting your blog regularly and are interacting with it (liking posts, commenting), it’s time for monetization strategies like banner ads or affiliate links.

5. Sell your photos

Selling your photos online is a great way to make money while traveling. There are many sites that will pay you for your photos, including Shutterstock and iStockPhoto. You can also sell them directly to travel magazines and websites that feature photo stories or destination guides.

Don’t forget about social media! If you have an Instagram account, start posting pictures of your travels to get followers and build up your audience. Then start selling the photos on sites like Canva or Fotor with clickbait headlines like “The Best Place In The World To Travel This Summer.” Once they’ve clicked through, they’ll see a full-resolution version of the photo without any watermarks or logos on it—and be more likely to buy it!

6. Freelance Editing/Proofreading/Copywriting

There are a lot of different ways to make money while traveling. You can work in the hospitality industry or teach English abroad, for example. If you have a specific skill or talent and are able to take it with you, that’s another way to go about things and really maximize your income potential.

One option that many people find incredibly lucrative is freelance editing/proofreading/copywriting — and why wouldn’t they? It takes very little work on your part (in fact, the less time spent doing actual work usually means more money earned), so even if you only manage a few hours of productivity each week, there will still be plenty left over for spending money at nightspots around town.

7. Work Online for a Company

Working online for a company can be a great way to make money while traveling. You can work remotely, which means that you can work from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection.

The first step is finding a remote job opportunity that fits with your experience and goals. Some companies will only hire people who live in the same country or region, but others allow applicants from anywhere around the globe to apply for positions advertised on their website or social media channels (such as Twitter or Facebook).

Once you’ve found an opportunity that looks appealing, send them your CV (curriculum vitae) so they know who they are hiring and if it’s possible for them to contact you about further details about working together!

8. Teaching Lessons (yoga, music, languages)

Teaching lessons is a great way to make money while traveling. If you have a skill that you can teach, there’s a good chance that you can find students who are willing to pay for your knowledge. You could teach anything from yoga and music lessons to languages and cooking classes.

You can find clients online or through word of mouth and even advertise in hostels, hotels and cafes around the world if they allow it (some won’t).

9. Work at Hostels (reception, cleaning)

You can also work at hostels if you haven’t yet left on your travels. I have met many travellers who found themselves stranded in a country or city by an unexpected event, such as an illness or injury, and needed some extra cash to get home. In this case, working part-time at the hostel for a few weeks will help you get back on your feet financially so that you can continue traveling.

Working at a hostel after returning from your trip is another great way to make money while you travel.

You may want to consider returning home with more experiences and skills than when you left; perhaps now you know how to cook vegan food or build furniture from scratch! If this is the case, there are many ways that people use their newfound knowledge for extra income: teaching classes online (e.g., via Skype), starting their own business (e.g., creating websites), working part-time locally in their hometowns…the possibilities are endless!

10. Recording Podcasts

Recording a podcast is easy—you just need a smartphone and some basic recording software. If you want to make your podcast sound more professional, consider investing in a fancy microphone like the Rode Procaster or the Blue Yeti.

Once you have a rough draft of your show, it’s time to edit it down into an audio file that can be uploaded online. Most podcasts are edited using Audacity, which has its own tutorials on how to use the program (and there are plenty of other resources online as well).

Once you have all the pieces together, upload them onto something like Soundcloud or Podbean so people can listen! Then start marketing yourself by telling everyone who will listen about your new show! You can apply for sponsorships from companies by contacting them directly or Googling “podcast sponsorship.”

At The End

While you’re traveling, there are plenty of ways to earn some cash. If you want to keep your options open and have fun while earning money, consider becoming a virtual assistant or freelance writer. If you want something more hands-on, try working in the service industry at a hostel or teaching lessons like yoga or music!
