There are a lot of people working in the IT field and managing a successful digital nomad lifestyle. There are abundant opportunities for them.

It is important to have some money in hand before planning. It will make the trip easier and prevent the chances of empty pockets. Carefully research for the place where there are already available opportunities. Almost every art place in the world has their website and social media pages.

2. Cultivate a Strong Social Media Presence
Making a travel blog is the most common idea that everyone gives when you share the idea of traveling and working. It is not that easy as it sounds.

It also requires interesting content every day to engage people. Relying totally on a blog is not a good idea. Influencers mostly earn from affiliate marketing, promotion, PR, adverts or product recommendations. You can make a nice social media page to place your art and add some travel updates however you have to wait or spend some amount to make money.
3. Digi-Art Nomad
If you want to make money and enjoy then the best option is becoming a digital and art nomad at the same time. All you have to manage the time to craft and work.

You only need to get in touch or participate in activities.
4. Alternative Travel Jobs

Backpackers consider it a good chance to interact with locals, make money and sometimes get a place to stay. These jobs are to work at organic farms, moving and packing help, daycare for children, etc. At the time of annual events and festival companies need part-time or temporary employees. You can also apply for temporary event management team.
5. Starting a Charity

The only requirement is to create a page and associate it with a valid account to receive money. Raise funds or sell your products. With this job you cannot only sell your art quickly but can also travel and participate in doing well for the society.
If you are a musician or a painting artist you can do a roadshow. Just find a nice place where people sit for relaxation. You can start creating live painting or sketches. This thing can be done anywhere because people love to get their handmade sketches. You can also share your contact details or social media to make some long term clients. However playing some nice live music and letting the audience participate and give you some bucks is not a bad idea. You can also teach your skill of art or music to people.
