  • Become a Digital Nomad – Top 5 Jobs for Travel Buffs

    If you are someone who is always monitoring flights on MakeMyTrip, reading travel blogs for information about unusual destinations not many others have uncovered and if you don’t mind living out of a suitcase or backpack, you, my friend, are a true gypsy soul driven by wanderlust. The thought of traveling for a living excites pretty much most of us – let’s face it, discovering new and beautiful places is an adventure no one would complain while undertaking. But, the logistics of actually pulling this feat off intimidates the very best of us, because one has to pay those pesky little bills, and for that, there has to be a steady source of income. Well, in the world of digitalization, here are five jobs that will empower you to become a digital nomad so you can travel the world without going broke.

    Travel Thought Leader

    With more and more people spending time consuming specialized content online, there is plenty of scope to become a thought leader in the travel sector. If you are very good at what you do and your content is unique, you could actually become a sought-after vlogger, blogger, travel Instagrammer, or all three and make money through tie-ups with various brands.

    Designer

    Lots of companies are outsourcing work to freelancers, since it cuts back on overhead costs for them. If you are a graphic designer or Web designer, or even an animator, you have plenty of opportunities to grab ample work you can handle while traveling as long as you have your laptop, phone and some stead WiFi access. You can either scout for work through job portals like Freelancer and Craigslist, or you can make a list of agencies in various cities and manually approach them for projects. Be proactive.

    Digital Marketing Consultant

    As mentioned right above, the future is telecommuting in many industries, including marketing. More and more professionals are offering consulting services related to SEO, marketing, copywriting, branding, strategy, PR and the works, while treating the entire world as their workpad. You need to make sure you keep pitching and securing new projects to maintain a steady flow of cash, though.

    Digital Video Editing

    Many companies need video editors who can edit bulk content – if this sounds right up your alley, and if you can guarantee a high-speed internet source while on-the-go, this work might just fund your love for traveling very well.

    There are plenty of other jobs which can be done remotely, while traveling, including translation and transcription work, as well as voice overs (if you can invest in a decent mic).
