Making money as a Digital Nomad is every traveller’s dream. Digital Nomads travel from city to city, country to country frequently. They work online to earn a living and sustain this personal and professional lifestyle. There are many ways through which digital nomads can monetize their travel.


  1.   Running a Blog or YouTube Channel

There’s nothing better than making an account for your travels and getting paid for it. Blogging is the number one source of earning money online and people love to read travel journeys more than anything. But how to monetize your own blogs? It’s simple; by selling ad spaces on your blog. By allowing advertising on your blog, you can monetize your content depending on how many impressions or views your blog gets.

The more evolved version of blogging is; Vlogging on youtube. People nowadays prefer seeing live accounts of your travels and expeditions in a video format rather than seeing pictures on your blog which they can see on insta or google. Uploading videos on youtube generate impressions and subscribers way faster than blogging and in no time you can become a social media travel influencer. You can monetize by ads, incorporating affiliate marketing on your video posts which will earn you a commission for every sale
