Every millennial dreams of traveling the world today. If you ask anyone graduating college, you’ll get the typical: “I just want to see the world, then go to work afterwards and start my career.”
The two don’t need to be mutually exclusive. Instead of graduating and seeing the world, I went right to work, establishing a base that now enables me to travel at my leisure while sustaining an income.
How do I do it?
Well, I might not totally divulge my secret, but I can definitely go through my 3 major sources of income that keep it coming even if I’m on another continent.
If you want to make money while traveling, check out my top 3 recommendations:
1. Fiverr.com: If you haven’t heard of Fiverr yet, it’s time to familiarize yourself. I joined the freelancing site close to 3-years ago, starting out with some light editing work. Since then, I offer blogging, press release writing, press distribution, social media content, Instagram consultations, email writing, and website copywriting through the site.
The beauty of Fiverr is that you really are your own boss. You can turn your “gigs” off whenever you want, ensuring the orders aren’t flowing in too intensely while traveling. You can also keep the gigs active, ensuring a steady cash when you want it.
It definitely takes some hard work and patience in the beginning, so I’d recommend opening your account today. If you’re not sure what to write as gig descriptions, check out the competitors in your category and start from there! I’ll also happily post blogs specifically about Fiverr details if anyone is interested.
2. Social Media Management: Every business in existence today is in need of some social media assistance. Whether it’s for Facebook or Instagram, writing the posts, or researching hashtags, anyone can do it if they put in the time. The beauty of social media is that it occurs digitally. Find one or two clients that pay you to post to their accounts for them, and you can get a nice cushion of $500 or more a month going for you.
3. Blogging: It’s not easy monetizing a blog, but the good thing about blogging is that everyone has something in their life they can blog about. Whether it’s guitar products or a new vegan recipe you just concocted in the kitchen, there’s something you can share with your audience. Identify that passion, and open a free blog on WordPress.
With Plugins, you can implant ads that generate revenue when people click on them. Not to mention, you can partner with brands and offer their product on your blog for a portion of the profits.
Some cool news is that through one of my digital companies, Websites While U Wait, we’re actually going to pre-build eCommerce sites for clients that are already set up to generate revenue while you do NOTHING.
You can travel and earn money simultaneously today! I would recommend prioritizing an income structure before you hit the airways, instead of doing it the other way around. Set up a Fiverr account, list your services, secure a few friends or family social media accounts to manage, and start blogging about your travels and passions.
Plus, stay tuned for our pre-made eCommerce sites that are already set up for you to use!
