If you are a tourist or traveller, or just want to spent some time overseas for a while for something different, how will you support yourself? How will you stay afloat financially? You need a way to make money traveling the world even if you are only on a tourist visa and not allowed to officially work wherever you end up.
The answer is simple?
Ways You Can Work Online
Let’s make a quick list for reference:
- Work as a freelancer (writer, designer, editor, programmer etc.)
- Teach English via Skype
- Do online surveys (doesn’t pay much)
- Write and sell eBooks
- Sell your music or art
- Sell your photos on stock sites
- Run an online business
There are a few ideas to get you going. The pick of the bunch includes these two things in my opinion:
- Working as a freelancer
- Running an online business
I do both and I’m currently living in a foreign country on a tourist visa. You see, the thing is, when you derive your income entirely from online sources, you are legally allowed to work from anywhere. No work visa is required because you are not officially working or conducting business in any particular country. The online world is like a planet all on its own. Click here to learn how I do it.
An Online Business Is The Perfect Solution
If you have some skills to offer as a freelancer, that’s great. You can target freelance sites such as Fiverr or Upwork to get clients, or simply send out emails to clients you think might be interested in your services.
As far as an online business goes, anyone can learn how to do this. There are many forms of online business, but the most convenient one – and one of the easiest and cheapest to set up and run – for people who are travelling abroad, is an affiliate marketing business.
What Is Affiliate Marketing, You Say?
Affiliate marketing is like being an online sales rep for one or more companies, promoting their products for a commission. You don’t need to stock products or handle money or post anything out. The vendor does all that on your behalf. All you need to do is choose a niche (an area that interests you, like weight loss or photography etc.), sign up for some affiliate programs within your niche and promote those products on your own website and via your social media accounts.
It’s a very basic business model, costs virtually nothing other than your time and anyone, no matter where you are from or what age you are, can learn to do this kind of business successfully and make it profitable.
This website you are on now is an affiliate marketing website as well as being a site jam packed full of useful content.
What Will You Need?
The short answer is: not much.
It’s really just your time and commitment to both learning and earning.
All you really need is a computer and an internet connection. That’s about it as far as business equipment and overhead goes. You will pay for a few other small little things along the way – such as a domain name – but this business model is just so cheap to run. And the best part is, it’s mobile!
You can do it from anywhere in the world!
It's absolutely perfect for travelers! and those with a transient lifestyle.
Want To Get Started For Free?
First you will need some training, a guide that will show you how to set up this business a step at a time in a logical sequence.
And you can get started absolutely FREE!
I trained with Wealthy Affiliate, an online portal that is both a training platform as well as an active community of likeminded business people; ranging from complete beginners through to seasoned experts making 6 figures a year plus. Everyone is just so helpful there. The place is worth it’s weight in diamonds if you are serious about having a mega successful online business. Click below for more details.
It costs nothing to get started and you can even do the first 10 lessons of the training for free to try it out. Takes about 2 minutes to join and set up a very brief profile. They don’t ask for credit cards and then start billing you after a month.
The choice to upgrade to a Premium Membership is entirely up to you, but certainly well worth it if you want online business success. You can even create and host 2 websites for nothing, and you get to keep these forever whether you upgrade or not.
If you are a traveller or expat and want to be able to legitimately make money in a foreign country, then an online affiliate marketing business is the best way to do it.
