Top 10 Online Business Ideas for Digital Nomads

Running a business online is a lot easier these days than it used to be. In fact, you’ll likely be surprised at just how many options there are and at how many amazing business models can be run without necessarily needing any kind of ‘base of operations’.

Here are 10 examples to get you thinking.

1 Copywriting

Become a copywriter and provide websites with the copy they need. It’s a very straightforward job you can do with simple tools.

2 Web Design

Another good option is web design. Building a website is relatively easy these days thanks to the likes of WordPress, while tools such as the Surface Pro 4 provide everything you need for design work.

3 Programming

Coding will always be in demand and you can find all manner of coding jobs easily on freelancing sites like UpWork and Elance.

4 Service Arbitrage

Don’t want to spend your time travelling performing work for other clients? Then why not find someone who’ll do the job a little cheaper and just keep the difference? Yep, it’s that easy!

5 Vlogging

People love challenge and they love to live vicariously through others. So if you can share your travels on YouTube, then you can quickly get a big audience and start profiting from ads or even sponsors!

6 Sports Commentary

Many online sites need sports commentary so that fans of teams can follow games online. You just watch the games and write what’s happening!

7 Instagram

Believe it or not, you can actually make a living from Instagram if you have enough viewers by getting sponsors!

8 Blogging

Running a blog is a tricky business that takes a while to get right… but once you do manage it, you’ll be earning a lot of money writing about things you love!

9 Selling a Product

Sell a product online by using dropshipping. This means you can work with a manufacturer to personalize an existing product and then let them handle storage and fulfilment. All you need do is create an ecommerce store! Or how about selling a digital product instead?

10 Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing means selling an existing product for commission. You don’t have to do anything – just promote the product and then point your visitors in the right direction with a custom link.

And these are just a small selection of businesses that you can use on the road!
