Four Great Job Ideas That Give You Freedom to Travel

Tips for Launching a Successful Freelance Business

With travel more accessible than ever before, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of people have decided to spend at least a small portion of their lives exploring more of the world. Today, if you want to travel, you have a wide variety of options available for you, particularly when it comes to making money to keep yourself on the road. Whether you’d rather work for yourself or find paid employment as you go, here are some awesome job ideas for avid travellers.

#1. Teaching:

If you’re a native English speaker, then you’re in luck – teaching English as a foreign language is one of the most popular job options for travellers today. As the most-spoken language around the world, English tuition is needed in almost every country worldwide at schools, education centres, and privately. To become an English language teacher, you’ll first need to gain a widely recognized qualification, such as the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate. If you’re already a qualified teacher, you might want to take your skills and knowledge around the world with you. Consider teaching overseas with Point to Point Education or working from your laptop as an online tutor.

#2. Freelancing:

If you have a skill that can be put to use online, you might want to consider making your money as a traveling freelancer. For example, if you have a knack with words and excellent grammar, you may be able to find regular work writing website content, sales letters, marketing emails, social media content, articles, press releases and blog posts for a wide range of companies. Social media management is also becoming more accessible as a freelance job, with more brands in need of experienced social media users to take control of their profiles. If you have a passion for creating, you might want to consider freelancing as a web or graphic designer. All of these jobs can be done from anywhere, as long as you have a laptop, an internet connection, and any relevant software programs.

#3. Affiliate Marketing:

E-commerce is a popular option for anybody wanting to start an online business, but it may not always be the most practical choice for those who want to travel a lot. If you’re moving around quite regularly, you may have nowhere to put your stock, which is where affiliate marketing comes into play. As an affiliate marketer, you’ll be promoting other people’s products online, and receiving a percentage of profits when an item sells. A good place to get started is Amazon Associates and choose a niche that you enjoy. How about travel products and accessories?

#4. Blogging and Vlogging:

Lastly, you might want to consider making a living out of your travels themselves. As you go on more and more adventures around the world, you can make money from writing about them, taking photographs, making video clips, or a combination of the three. You can make money from influencer marketing, selling space, affiliate marketing, and more.

Don’t let your job hold you back from traveling the world – try one of these exciting careers that you can take almost anywhere with you.
