Digital nomads all over have inspired a lot of people to quit their everyday 9 to 5 routine for a more relaxed and controlled work environment. Gone are the days when people would do try their luck for 9 to 5 jobs and fret over being jobless. Today, you self-employ yourself and choose your own working hours and allow yourself the luxury of traveling the world while you earn.
The digital world is rapidly growing which makes people more inclined towards carrying their laptops around, enjoying their favorite destinations and earning while they do so. People with this frame of mind are called digital nomads and are their own boss.
They decide their working hours, breaks timings in between and the employers they want to work for. Now, these digital nomads can take up a lot of different professions that may interest them individually. You may find digital nomads who are programmers, website designers, content writers, photographers, social media marketers and the list goes on and on.
However, there are a few popular career choices that are used by digital nomads to make a living that do not require them to be at one central location. Learn more about these digital nomad career paths that can not only build a healthy bank account but will also let you decide how, when and where you work.
Programmers develop software for computers and one of the most popular career paths adopted by remote workers and digital nomads. As a programmer, you can work offline and is it a location independent profession which means you don’t even need a stable internet connection to interact with a digital interface. These programmers usually develop software for websites and applications.
2) WEBSITE AND APPLICATION DEVELOPERS
Websites developers are a special kind of programmers who are responsible for building, maintaining and fixing websites. They create the design, working layout, and style of a website and they are also responsible for fixing and removing any bugs and virus that makes the website slow or unusable.
App developers also work similarly with just a slight difference in the coding style. This requires them to acquire a different skill set for their job. The app developer uses the idea of an application on phone or on the computer and builds the layout, design, functions and other features of the app. Then these developers test run the application and fix any bugs that affect the smooth running of the application.
As the world makes a shift towards digital format, the requirement of developers is increasing. This work involves little to no client interaction and does not necessarily require an internet connection which is you will find more digital nomads who are developers.
3) SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETER
In this era where social media is rising to new heights, it is now important for all brands in different industries to have a social media presence in order to engage with the consumers directly. A social media marketer helps the brand maintain its presence on the various social media channels to engage the consumers. They do this by posting about the brand, running a contest on social media channels to create awareness and maximize reach and also have forums where queries and complaints are entertained thus making it easier for the consumer to reach out to the brand.
This is another popular career for the remote workers where they formulate strategies to keep the brand ahead of the competition by effective and timely application of marketing strategies. All you need is an internet connection; a mind that knows how to strategize and you are good to work from the location of your choice. It is that simple!
4) ONLINE ENTREPRENEUR
In the digital age, running a business in a brick and mortar capacity is outdated. One needs to have a social media presence to find the right and targeted consumers for their business. Also, many entrepreneurs with a great product or service may not have the investment required to set up a store so having an online presence may do the job for them. They can, most importantly, operate from home or from the vacation and get the business going smoothly.
Thus the digital entrepreneurs perform the basic functions of the business such as management and marketing themselves or they hire a team to this for them. You may find common digital entrepreneurs to be selling an item they make or import through their online store which is again a famous profession, especially for people who do not have a big investment and want to work at their own pace and time.
5) TEACHING LANGUAGE SKILLS
The modern times have made it easy for people to learn a language in no time. There are remote workers who are experts at a language and have command over it. They willingly take their expertise to the next level by using it to earn income out of it without restricting themselves to a location. Online platforms are promoting this idea where teachers and students come together and learn this new language.
Most common teachers available online are the ones teaching English Language skills to the people. Not only the English language there is people willing to learn other languages too which is why online language teaching has become another great profession for digital nomads around the world.
6) CONTENT WRITING
The last and most common digital nomad profession is content writing. There are a number of freelance writers who write for websites, emails, media posts, blog posts and reviews. I am one of them and I tell you my experience that I have worked at various places and mostly offline is why it is an ever-growing profession for the digital nomads around the globe that does not require you to sit in one place and you can write everything remotely with or without an internet connection.
So, what are you waiting for? Travel the world and work on your own terms!
