4 ways to make money online and always be traveling
Working online usually gives you the freedom to wander around the world and work throughout your journey. There are actually a lot of people that do this, but it's not like what you've read about in success stories, they are just working from home and going on vacation whenever they want. I'm actually able to pick up and leave whenever I want because I just have to bring my laptop with me and I can work whenever I want as long as I have an internet connection. One of my main sources of income is through my SEO company and a close second it from my content writing services. My SEO team can handle everything if I happen to be offline for a week, and everything will run just fine because I chose them based on their backgrounds and they're not new to the game. My writing service is a little different though, since I have to send content to my clients around the world, and my SEO team doesn't handle this task so I have to be online at some point. The beauty of this is that I can write up all the content on my laptop, regardless of having an internet connection or not, and send the content to the clients when I do happen to get a connection
Not everyone can do this, but a lot of us want to, and that's the reason I'm writing up this discussion
There are a lot of risks involved when it comes to being a nomadic business owner, such as you might not be able to connect online for a few days, which could hurt your sales if you're running everything by yourself. If you have a business partner, they can certainly handle online things while you're offline, and you likely won't lose any sales. Sure, some clients may only want to talk to you, but your business partner will be able to tell them why you're not online and the client will either work with your partner or wait for you to come back to civilization lol Another risk is some business owners might not want to work with you because you are nomadic and don't have a single location to where you're working.
Regardless of the risks of being a traveling business owner, it's still a great thing to achieve and you should always try to achieve it. If you aren't sure of what to do, don't worry, here are 8 things you can focus on to build an online business that allows you to travel the entire time if you really want to.
Write your own eBook
One of the best ways to build a passive income, and one of the oldest, is to write up your own eBook and put your own affiliate links in it. You can write up your eBook and publish it on various platforms, and get paid for every purchase as well as make a commission on each affiliate link clicked and a purchase is made. Now, some platforms require you to write it up in a specific manner, like Amazons kindle direct publishing platform, but that's not a big deal if you already have all the content
With eBook selling platforms, you need to be sure if you can place affiliate links within the book to actually make money off of or if you can't. If you can't, you have to sell your eBook to make a profit, and you won't be able to give it away for free to entice people to download it
A proven way to build up your passive income is to start blogging because people will begin to trust you over time and eventually purchase from you. People go on blogs all the time to read reviews, read "how to" articles, get an update about an event, etc. If you can write up a blog that is super niche specific, and not general at all, you will be able to target a specific set of users out there that will engage with your content more than a general post, which will increase your sales and profits along the way. This does take some time to get to the top of the rankings, but it's a sure fire way to get some profits rolling in that are completely passive
Sell digital services
Well, you're already here on SEOLads so you likely know where this is going lol If you are selling a backlink service that requires software to run all of the time, but you may disconnect when you go off the grid, you might want to invest in a VPS to run all the time. If you're running a content writing service, just like me, you'll be able to write up the content while you're not connected, then you can send the finished work when you get back online Digital services are beautiful if you can blend them into your nomadic behaviour, because you can run a full-fledged business and be gone from home for a few weeks or a few months lol.
Become a consultant
Consulting is a big thing right now, online or offline, and you can make a pretty penny offering your expertise to new businesses out there looking for some direction. You can be a fully digital consultant, meaning you never really visit your clients, and you're just working with them via phone call or video chat. People around the world need consultants and you could fill that gap with your vast knowledge of the niche you're in.
Becoming a nomadic business owner isn't a difficult thing to do, but you might not want to buy plane tickets just yet. It does take time to build up your online business, so be sure you have plenty of income prior to going around the world and working along the way. You can do various things, and the 4 businesses I mentioned above are just the tip of the iceberg, so use your imagination and get to work
