I too, have a ‘Digital Nomad Dream.’🌍🌴😎
I’m one step closer to that dream.
Because damn, has It’s been a cool couple of month with the freelancing.
Yes it has & long may it continue!
I’ve been in the freelance game for a few years now, but I only recently attacked it on a full-time basis this year. I first started freelancing in 2015. Although, back then, it was just a weekend ‘FreelanceWarrior’ thing.😜
I would search online for the odd job on freelancing websites & social media to help top-up my income. Sometimes I’d hit the jackpot, but most times I didn’t!
That certainly didn’t stop me trying though because I had a long-term objective & I was prepared to play the long game as I wanted to live the life of a digital nomad, working online whilst travelling the world earning an income as I travel to help fund that travel. Freelancing is my ticket to live that life.
Albeit, freelancing can be a very difficult game to play & finding new clients can be time consuming & extremely hard work at the beginning, but if you’re committed & proceed in a professional manner, then you will eventually achieve & succeed.
Trust me when I say, I’m going to achieve, succeed & finally reach my target of travelling the world whilst making loadsa money as a digital nomad because I’m very confident that I will!
You too, can live the digital nomad dream & freelance your way around the world if thats what you aspire to do. You just have to keep trying to reach all of your set targets. If you’re a fresh freelancer embarking on your freelance journey, then my short-term advice would be to join as many freelance websites as possible & start looking for gigs today because one platform alone simply won’t cut it. You need to create many possible sources of income as a freelancer until you finally reach an acceptable monthly pay balance that reflects all the time & effort that you put in.
There are some awesome resources online for a freelancer if you look in the right places.
My favourite platforms are:
Get Blogged is a fantastic platform for bloggers who want to work with brands. They find the clients for you & it’s super easy to apply & submit your completed articles. Get Blogged is my NO:1 go to website to earn an income from my blog. It’s an awesome blogger outreach resource that all bloggers can join.
Is one of the best platforms that can help you to find clients. You can create up to seven gigs as a seller when you first join. I’ve found several long-term clients via Fiverr & I would recommend this cool website to find new client as a freelancer & maybe build a long-term working relationship.
Is a cool platform that has many clients waiting for you to complete freelance gigs for them online. You can set your own hourly pay rate & apply for as many gigs as you want via the PeoplePerHour website, which is very easy to use.
Is a good platform if you’re just starting out & struggling to find freelance clients. Although, the pay rate per written article can be very low until you advance from a standard level writer to a premium &/or elite writer. You can pay your way to the higher level if you wish to do so.
As a big part of your freelancing career you should definitely join affiliate marketing programs & start earning passive income via your own websites by advertising your affiliate links to your viewers who may be currently searching for that type of possible passive income.
Offers an affiliate marketing program & advertising. The Infolinks website is awesome & quite easy to earn an income from. I decided against advertising on my websites for now, but it’s a viable option for the future.
Finding affiliate marketing programs & advertising your links is easy. You can create articles/reviews/promotions via your website about products & the services that others provide.
A fantastic platform to find the latest affiliate programs is:
A great resource to find the very best of affiliate marketing programs that are available online. I’ve also found & worked with new clients via my Linkedin connections. It’s a must join platform because freelance opportunities are plenty.
Linkedin really is great for business!
The best advice that I can provide is to create your own freelancing website because with that in place, you’ll gain new clients who actually seek out your service & you’ll find that you don’t always have to sell your soul by constantly pitching to potential clients who haven’t really got the time to respond to your pitch emails in the first place, so having your own website can make life a lot easier.
My freelancing website is:
I’ve had 400+ hits up to date & gained clients directly from their engagement with the website. My client list is rapidly growing. Therefore, I would advise any freelancer to create their own business website if they haven’t yet done so. Make sure to share your services on social media & you’ll reap the rewards for the effort.
The first step towards becoming a successful freelancer is to research & become a subject matter expert, gaining as much knowledge as possible in your area of expertise by reading everything you can find about freelancing.
Check out other freelancers because you may learn a trick or two if you do.
Don’t give up if you struggle to find clients when you first start freelancing.
Always search for new clients & try to build a long-term working relationship.
Knowledge is power.
Try to become a guru in your own profession.
The rest is easy!
Enjoy the wonderful world of freelancing & live the ‘Digital Nomad Dream’.🌍🌴😎
Take care everyone.
Chase Your Dream Travellers!😜
