Do Some Writing

Do you have a talent for putting together words? And could you quite happily write about any number of topics in a clear and concise way, while meeting deadlines and pitching yourself to new clients?

If so, freelance writing could be an ideal job for you. Keep in mind that not just anyone can write, and you’ll need to have some serious writing chops if you want to make it a career, while starting small with low-paid jobs to get testimonials and clips. If you’re a professional who can get the job done and be trusted to work quickly and effectively, you’ll quickly gain referrals and build up a nice network of clients. Build a portfolio on a website and begin learning to pitch, and you may find that you’ll stay overseas for a long time. Here are some guidelines for better writing.

Make Websites

If you have a gift for building easy-to-use and attractive websites, you’ll find that you can earn a lot of money on the internet in a number of different ways. If you’re good at SEO, keyword research and marketing, you can attract people to your website and sell affiliate products to make money. There are also many businesses which have poor websites that aren’t user-friendly or optimized for mobile use, so if you can pitch to these businesses you may also find that you can do freelance web design and development.

Another fun option for making money while travelling is to play and win. There are many different internet casinos to choose from, so if you’ve got some time on your hands and you love to play games, this could be an idea option. You can do this from anywhere, and with a laptop, tablet or mobile, so if you’ve been wanting to get your adrenaline flowing and earn some money with internet casino games while still having fun, this could be the best option for you.

Get Competitive

Spend some time online and you’ll notice how many businesses and organizations have competitions with some incredible prizes. There are thousands to choose from, and some people make a living by signing up for competitions every day, earning thousands of dollars in prizes and cash, including cars, holidays, houses, and more. This may seem a little strange, but when you’re travelling you often have time on your hands while you’re in an airport or cafe, in a hostel or elsewhere, so it makes sense to use this time wisely and enter some competitions. You’ve got to be in it to win it, so sign up to as many as you
