5 Easy Ways To Make Money While Living Abroad.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Living abroad is an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone.

Meeting new people and experiencing different cultures really opens your eyes to a whole new way of life.

If your anything like me heading back home becomes harder every time.

Here are a few ways to extend your stay a bit longer or even indefinitely.

#1. This is a great way to earn an income while travelling or living abroad.

If your into all things photography and you’re set up with some decent equipment then it’s really a no-brainer, with a few basic computer skills you can get paid doing what you enjoy.

Heck, you’re going to be taking photos anyway right?

For the real enthusiast, it’s possible to turn your passion into a business.

An easy way to monetize your passion is to become a contributor at depositphotos.

Web Design

#2. Web Design these days is not rocket science and I could confidently say that just about anyone could give it a crack.

So if you know how to turn on a computer you’re well on your way to cyber domination.

There is plenty of platforms available to host the site of your or someone else’s dreams.

Have a look at Wix or GoDaddy, they both give you step by step guidance on the setup process.

Affiliate Marketing

#3. Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn some travel money or even replace your income or more.

Affiliate marketing basically is the process of promoting a business’s products or services (usually the ones you are interested and knowledgeable about) to others.

And if a sale is processed then the affiliate receives a commission from the business.

You need to be able to build an audience and have the ability to keep that audience engaged to be successful in this game.


#4. If your creative juices are freely flowing and you have a well-developed urge to share then blogging may be right up your alley.

Traditionally bloggers will have a website where they share their content on just about any topic you can think of and then some.

Most bloggers stick to a particular theme ie: surfing blog or investing blog.

Some bloggers get paid via commissions from advertisements on their site while others sell their creative skills to others.

Get Creative

#5. There are many ways to finance your life abroad and sometimes all it takes is a little ingenuity and the ability to think outside the box.

One guy I met was financing his way through South East Asia by approaching the local tour companies to the area.

He was striking up a deal with them to get a commission for every customer he could attract to their operation.

The tour operators were more than happy with that arrangement and so was he.

How do you or have you made money abroad?

Affiliate marketing is not quick money, but like blogging, it’s a way to build passive income streams over time once you’ve created quality evergreen content that contains affiliate links.
