The Best Ways To Make Money Online While Travelling Right Now

The Digital Nomad game is really a long one. It takes time, commitment, perseverance and investment to build up websites, portfolios and clients that will start earning you money to allow you to live a location free lifestyle wherever you may choose.

All of the investment of your time, money and resources into a project is great for the long run and for building a healthy, solid online career out of your passions and skills, but sometimes it is necessary to earn a quicker dollar here and there when you are just starting out, or when you have a slower month than usual on the work train.

There are many ways to make money online, and for as long as people have been travelling they have been trying to find ways to extend their travels and to make a bit of cash to fund it on the side. There are plenty of ways to do it, long and short term, and it’s always best to have a mixed portfolio to count on – long and short term goals – to keep your money rolling in.

Building affiliates, audiences and generating leads all takes time, and there are quicker methods to utilise your skills to keep things ticking over until that long term pay off kicks in.

If you need an alternative income, a bit more cash to fund that latest trip or just want to try a hand at a few different online money making routes, then here are the best ways to make money online while travelling right now.

The Best Ways To Make Money Online While Travelling Right Now

Sell Stock Photos And Videos

If you travel, then the chances are that with all the technology available to take on our journeys now, that you have some sort of camera, even if it’s just on your phone.

Chances are too, that you usually take a few pictures. You see something interesting, you photograph it. You might put it on Facebook or upload it to your blog, but unless you are also a professional photographer, you probably don’t plan on using that picture to make any money.

Well, those travel photographs and travel videos you have taken across the world could actually be worth something. If you have great images from a good camera- like a DSLR – then you can try uploading your content to platforms such as Shutterstock where buyers are always looking for stock footage and photographs to license. If you sell, you earn, and those old travel pics could be worth something after all.

Sell Viral Videos To News Companies

Now this sounds like an interesting way to make money online while travelling. And no, you don’t need to be a member of the Associated Press or have any contacts at the BBC or CNN, you just need a video that could potentially go viral or be very current and news worthy. It could even be of someone just falling over…

These videos can then be uploaded to video footage brokers, who will then try and sell footage onto news companies and other media. The beauty is, you can upload anything, and if they make a sale, you get a big cut of the profits.

The best place to start uploading is Newsflare!

Find Remote Work On Upwork

Upwork is a fantastic resource for finding short term freelancing projects online. It’s a place for clients to meet their future freelancers, and companies and individuals will post asking for suitable candidates work which can be completed remotely. From social media management to running full on advertisement campaigns, there are one off gigs and long terms projects too, you just have to start looking and start applying for work.

Write For Copy Press

Copy Press is a company dedicated to finding freelance work for writers and finding freelance writers for companies who need content written. There’s lots of work available, but the standards are high and written tests have to be completed before they start to issue you with freelancing projects. They have lots of varied clients, and for copywriters it’s a great place to start and to get a foot in the door, or to pick up casual work every now and then.

Earn Crypto On Steemit

Steemit is the future of online media. If you haven’t already signed up, then get it on it as soon as you finish reading this post. It’s a platform that actually pays you for the content that you create and share with others, be it photographs, videos or writing, and it’s fast becoming a great community.

Steemit can be both a long term and short term money maker, as the platform pays you in their own Crypto Currency. This you can either keep, and invest in itself or other Crypto or you can simply cash it out to US Dollars and spend it how you like.
