It often happens that you think of settling over in another state or like to travel, but step back of the thought because of the fear that you will not be able to earn a considerable income. Since this decision directly affects your life and your family, especially in terms of making a livelihood, you should be careful before making the move. The following are a few ideas that may help you earn money as an expat.
Online Business Consultancy
The first option is continuing with your present occupation by offering consultancy services online. You can easily handle staff meetings and conversations through conference calls. This means your physical presence in the office is no more a requirement and you can do dealings virtually through the internet.
Online teaching has also become a popular source of income. By setting up online courses like marketing, social media, and graphic designing, you can capture students from all over the world through the internet, and from a single location, which can be your home country or abroad.
Website or App Development
Another idea is designing and launching mobile applications from your cell phone or creating websites from your PC. Again with this option, it does not matter, whether you are at home or enjoying a vacation in the Maldives. The only requirement is a reliable internet connection or high-speed WiFi.
Social Media Influencer
Social media is an excellent marketing tool that can be accessed from anywhere in the world and mobile apps have further enhanced its usage among people. Therefore, if you become successful in making a strong presence on various social media platforms, you can work as a marketer and collaborate with brands to promote their products.
Become A Guide Or Helper For New Expats
Another way to earn money as a slow traveler is to become a tour guide. This can be done in two ways. The first option is that you can become a guide for people who speak the same language as you do or belong to your home country. Another way is to become a guide for new residents by helping the bureaucracy. This is because when someone moves to a new place, they are ready to pay for assistance to get things done in the quickest and efficient way possible. You can be a guide or a helper to new expats if you know the bureaucratic side and language of your area.
Plan Trips for New Expats
You need to find what makes your area special. This will help you to plan trips for people to come and enjoy it and obviously you can earn from it. There are several options that you can choose from, for example, beach weddings, photography courses, mountain biking, climbing, horse riding, Ski training, diving, and boat trips.
Sell Hand-Made Products Online
The best way to earn money as a slow traveler and an expat is to sell products online. Now the question arises, what can you actually sell from a new place? First, you need to do some research, for example, to find out the handicrafts that are specifically made at that place. You can easily get these products from the wholesalers and can sell them at a discounted price. You can do online selling from your own website, or you can also start from Amazon, eBay, and Etsy.
Writing and Blogging
If you are looking for an idea that requires zero investment, then go for blogging. You can earn money by writing blogs and articles without spending a fortune. Most of the people prefer this option as this profession perfectly fits in for a traveler. Through blogging, you can write about your own experience in areas that you have visited. You can also give suggestions to other people who are planning to visit these areas.
So what are you waiting for? If you love traveling and worried about how to generate income, then follow one of these business ideas while you enjoy traveling the world.
