The Ultimate Guide On How To Find A Digital Nomad Job


So in my last article, I talked about what a digital nomad is and how to see if you’re ready to be one.

You can read that article here.

As I’ve said before, and as I will say countless more times, being a digital nomad is tough.

If it doesn’t suit your personality, you are not going to like it.

Like everything in life, it requires a lot of hard work and dedication; it is not the glamorous lifestyle that some people make it out to be.

But you have probably heard an “internet marketing guru” talk about how it’s the most amazing thing ever.

Well, internet newbie, you need to be aware of scams. If I were trying to sell you something, I would probably tell you that I could make all of your dreams come true.

Now, maybe being a digital nomad does indeed sound like a dream, but it’s also not 100% lounging by a pool in a tropical land of magic.

Again, if I were trying to sell you something, I’d show you a picture like this:

This is me… chillin’ by the pool… doing some work… livin’ the life…

Looks nice, right?

But this situation also came without internet, power, and unlike the sparkling pool and the palm trees suggest, it was surprisingly cold.

But here’s the flip side of that picture: One day I wanted to work beside a luxurious pool in Kuala Lumpur… so I did.

That’s the beauty of being a digital nomad. I can make spontaneous decisions and live a life free of stability.

  • That’s exciting to me.

If that’s also exciting to you, you may be looking for a way to start working as a digital nomad.

But before I get into how to find a digital nomad job, I want you to know that you can perpetuate a life of travel without being a digital nomad.

That’s right.

People were nomads before the internet existed…

I’ve met plenty of travelers who make money on the road by doing offline jobs.

You should only be a “digital” nomad if you have a job that you love and it happens to be based on the internet.

Let’s look at some “non-digital” nomad ways of making money:

Selling photographs/artwork

I have met travelers who take photographs of their travels, print them out, mount them on some posterboard, set up shop in some public space, and sell them. I have also met painters, sculptors, digital artists, etc. who do the same thing. All you need is a little bit of creativity and some confidence, and you can sell your craftworks as a means to sustain your travels.

I see this one happening a lot, and I have met many friends who have had success with this all throughout the world. If you are a performer, musical or otherwise, you can always go to a public place and perform. It’s best if your act is something unique (like playing a Shakuhachi while riding a unicycle), but even the typical acoustic guitar/singing routine will be successful. As a former acoustic guitar playing singer myself, I can personally vouch for the validity of this method. Again, this one takes a lot of confidence.

Teach Language

Assuming you’re traveling outside of your own country (that doesn’t speak the same language), you can almost always find an opportunity to teach your native language.

As a native English speaker, I can pretty much go to any non-native English-speaking country and easily find a teaching job. For other languages (Hindi for example), there are plenty of opportunities out there if you go looking for them. Remember this: Wherever you go in the world, someone is looking to learn your language.

Offer Other Services

You definitely have some kind of marketable skill. Maybe you can do massage, or give acupuncture, or teach dancing, or teach yoga, or give haircuts, or provide psychological counseling, or perform tea ceremonies, or write poetry, or whatever.

Everyone has some kind of skill that can be offered to the people of the world. Wandering Earl gives some good examples in this post; he mentions a woman who would refer clients to tour services for a commission. If you know how to be creative and tap into your innate human abilities, you can make some decent money on the road.

Now, don’t expect to break the bank with any of these money-making methods. But if you want to sustain a level of perpetual travel, these things can surely get you there.

That said, if you’re looking for more serious, more fulfilling, and more profitable work, pursuing a digital career is a great way to go.

Here are the three most common types of digital nomad jobs.

Note: Not all of these jobs will land you million dollar paychecks. Again, working on the internet requires a lot of really serious work. The more work you put in, the better your chances are for making a lot of money.

Three Types of Digital Nomad Jobs and How To Get Them

1. Blogging

If you’ve ever read any post here on SML, you know two things about blogging:

  1. It can be done from anywhere.
  2. You can earn a lot of money.

In terms of how to earn money blogging, well, there are a number of ways.

If you know how to do content marketing, you can probably do well selling affiliate products.

If you know how to get a lot of traffic to your site, you can probably do well with AdSense or other kinds of advertising.

There are countless ways of making money blogging.

But again, you need to put in a lot of hard and smart work.

You can read this article to learn more.

The big question is:

  • What do you want to blog about?

Well, the easy answer is this:

  • What do you like?

If you’re reading this, you probably like traveling. You could blog about that.

You also probably like working online. You could blog about that.

Maybe you like dogs. Or building houses. Or writing comic books. Or whatever.

Whatever it is you like, you can blog about it.

Try not to overthink what is appealing to you. You may even know what niche you should be blogging in but are too afraid to commit because you think there’s no commercial appeal (i.e. no way to make money).

But this is not true.

If you know how to do proper keyword research and content marketing, there is always a way to reach the top authority spot of your niche (and make money).

When working online as a blogger, again, you need to work really, really hard.

And again, this is not the glamorous lifestyle many people think it is. Even the bloggers who advertise what a glamorous lifestyle it is know that it’s not as glamorous as they make it sound.

Even if you just want to make enough money to maintain a bare-bones level of travel, you need to put in a lot of really serious work.

And even then, your blog will probably not start earning any money for several months.

Even THEN, you may not be making enough money to sustain your nomadic lifestyle.

But if you put in the necessary work and are sincere about your niche, you absolutely can make money as a blogger.

And if you keep at it and persist, you can absolutely maintain a level of travel with your blogging earnings.

2. Remote Freelancing

So yes, freelancing is a pretty broad topic.

But it needs to be said:

If you can do anything that involves working on the internet, you can find online freelance work.

For instance, I’m a writer and an editor.

I can go to any online publication and freelance with them.

Every single website that has writing on it (i.e. the vast majority of them) needs to have a writer and/or an editor. These are essential roles of pretty much every website.

But it doesn’t stop at writing…

If you are a photographer, many websites need photography. If you are a designer, many websites need design work. If you are a statistician, many websites need statistical analysis.

If you have any kind of skill that involves the internet, people who run businesses on the internet need that skill.

  • Save
Does anyone need someone who has a MacBook?

Here’s an example:

  • In the ShoutMeLoud team, there are writers, editors, designers, researchers, and managers. We are all freelancers working in our various specialties, and we all work remote. I randomly met up with Harsh one time, and I have never met any other team member in person. All of our communications are done via the internet.

If you have a skill that can be performed online, there’s no need to commute to an office every day.

Think about what kind of skills you have that can be translated to the online world, and then find that kind of work.

If you really don’t think that you have any online skill, you can always take a free online course and become educated in some online field. Go here and learn more about that.

Freelancing is all about working in a way that makes you happy. Don’t ever work in a way that doesn’t make you happy.

The life of a freelancer is varied and unpredictable. Some days you will have a lot of work, and other days you will have a little work. It’s best to learn good time management skills and how to stay productive.

Now, this is very important:

There will almost definitely be periods of downtime where you have no pending contracts and no “work” to do. During these times, you should spend about 75% of your time looking for work opportunities and the remaining 25% practicing your craft.

You don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you land a job but are unprepared to perform that job adequately.

Always be maintaining your craft, even when you have no “work” to do.

If you want, you can even offer to do quick and easy “free” jobs just to maintain your discipline. If you’ve ever worked in the entertainment field, you’ll know that this is a common practice (actors/musicians working for free just to keep up their craft).

If you’re a writer, you need to be writing.

If you’re a coder, you need to be coding.

If you’re a photographer, you need to be photographing.

You get the idea…

Keep the wheels of your craft greased so that when you get a job, you can adequately perform that job to the best of your abilities.

If you don’t do this, not only are you hurting the business that hired you, you’re hurting your chances of finding future work, becoming an expert in your craft, and perhaps most importantly, maintaining your digitally nomadic lifestyle.

How to find remote freelancing work:

Firstly, before you do anything, I would suggest setting up a personal website which contains a portfolio. For instance, if you’re a writer, you should have a website that has a portfolio of your writing. If you’re a photographer, you should have a website that has a portfolio of your photographs. And so on… This is not a requirement, but it helps A LOT.

So in order to become a freelancer, you need to start thinking like a freelancer.

The best part about freelancing is the “free” part (“free” as in “freedom” not as in “work for free”).

This means you have options.

You aren’t bound by any one job or any one office. You make your own decisions about when and where to work. You have all the power.

So when you go to look for work, remember that you are indeed a highly desirable employee. Many different people need you for your many different skills.

Don’t forget this.

To find freelance work, you can always go on freelancing sites:

Check out this article for some more sites.

And remote freelancing job boards:

You can also find a company that you know you want to work for and see if they’re hiring.

Check out this list of the best companies that hire remote workers.

And while all of these methods are great, you may not have much luck with them.

This is because freelancing sites have a lot of problems. If you’re not well-established on the platform, you could very easily never find a job.

And freelancing job boards feature companies that are almost immediately inundated with thousands of resumes from highly qualified people. Even if you’re good at what you do, someone else probably has a better-looking resume.

So here’s a trick:

  • Send out cold emails.

Prepare a resume, prepare a portfolio (link to your website), and send out a letter of inquiry to a company/website you want to work for.

This is how I’ve gotten almost every one of my freelance projects.

This works because when you present yourself in a professional and coherent way, businesses can’t help but accept the value you are offering them.

“I think your company needs more money butterflies.”

But there’s a major catch:

  • Don’t send out a generic email blast!!!

You need to do your research, carefully craft a letter of interest, and ensure that the business you are targeting actually needs your services.

I can’t tell you how many emails I have received from “internet marketing masters” for a domain I own that didn’t have a website on it. If they really were an internet marketing master, they’d have done their research and seen that I don’t need them to market an empty domain.

No one… NO ONE likes spam.

Don’t become a spammer.

You will be ignored 100% of the time and no one will want to work with you.

Instead, identify what the website needs and plan out a smart approach.

If you’re a web designer and you find a website with a bad design, send out an email, attach a resume, attach a portfolio, and tell them how you can help.

*And here’s the real secret to landing freelance clients:

  • Send out a sample of what you can do for them.

In our website design example, send out a snapshot of a re-designed homepage.

Or if you’re a logo designer, send them an example of a nicely designed logo (be sure to include a watermark so it doesn’t get stolen).

If you’re a writer, include a sample piece that would work well for their website.

If you’re an editor, take some of the text from the website and edit it.

Whatever it is that you’re good at doing, offer up a sample so that the company can get a taste of how good you actually are.

This also shows the company that you’re serious about contributing to the greater good of their business and are not just interested in making money.

Not only is spam annoying, it will only waste your time.

You will not find work. Guaranteed.

3. Your Current Job

So let’s say you already have a great job that you love, but you also want to work remote.

Unless you work in a physical retail environment (restaurant, clothing store, car dealership, etc.), you can likely figure out a way to keep that same job and work remotely.

Here’s a story:

I once knew a writer who was working for a large travel website. Her job was “content writer”, which for this site essentially meant “travel blogger”. But she had to go and work at the office every day! She was writing about being a lifelong traveler, but she had to do it from a physical office while working a “traditional” 9-5 job. How absurd! Even more ridiculous was that her company’s HQ was in a different country, so all communications were done online!

The company wanted to keep everyone together in an office setting to “encourage team morale”, but it was having the opposite effect on my friend who felt stifled and unable to perform her job.

Eventually, she convinced her boss to work remote, which had the effect of her increasing her productivity and output. Because of this, the company also had an increase in performance simply by allowing their employee the freedom to work remote.

Now, again, there are definitely situations where this won’t work. You can’t be a remote barista or a remote pastry maker. Maybe at some point in the future, but definitely not now…

However, if you work in tech, there is likely a way for you to maintain your current workload while working in a remote environment.

“I used to be an office worker with a suit. Now I’m a remote worker with a silly hat.”

How to talk to your boss about working remote:

So, if you’re reading this, you are likely feeling discontented with your current working situation.

But it’s possible that you love your job, you just hate being stifled by the office environment.

If you think you can do your job remotely, there’s only one thing you need to do:

  • Be honest.

Talk to your boss about how you’re feeling. Tell him/her that you’re feeling stuck and really don’t like working in an office.

If the company values you as an employee, they’ll figure out a way to make your workflow entirely internet-based.

Again, you really need to have the company’s best interest at heart- this is the most valuable kind of worker there is.

Show them that you really like the company, not just the paycheck they give you every month.

Offer to do a remote-based trial to see how it goes.

Offer to spend time in a training session to learn a new skill that you can apply to this new style of working.

You can even offer to take a pay cut (if you truly value your freedom above making money).

The point is: Be honest and clearly communicate your needs and expectations. If you’re a valuable member of the team, the company will want to see you at your happiest and most productive.

If it’s really not going to work out, you have three options:

  1. Accept defeat and work for a company that makes you feel stifled.
  2. Find a company that lets you work remote.
  3. Become a blogger/find freelance work.

Ok, there’s actually a fourth option:

  • Find offline traveling-based work (see the intro of this post).

But before you do any of these things, see if there’s a solution to be had with your current employer.

There’s even a company that helps you talk to your employer to figure out how you can work a remote job while organizing all of your travel arrangements, accommodations, and adventures (but because they’ve gotten so popular, they’ve become very selective ((and very expensive))). Check them out here: RemoteYear

BONUS: Become An Online Entrepreneur

This is something along the lines of “blogger”, but is a little more generalized.

An online entrepreneur is someone who builds some kind of business enterprise that is based online.

While this could be a blog, it doesn’t necessarily need to be one.

The more common types of online entrepreneurs run some kind of eCommerce site, but again, an online entrepreneur’s site doesn’t necessarily need to be an eCommerce one.

It’s important to remember that businesses are based around providing service, so if you’re trying to become an online business person, you need to be able to provide a service.

Examples of online-based non-eCommerce service sites:

  • Payment Systems
  • SEO Checkers
  • Freelancer Marketplaces
  • Job Boards
  • Social Media Platforms

“My website teaches you how to look awkward in photos.”

As an online entrepreneur running a website, you may want to maintain a blog in order to effectively market your services. But here, your focus is only on marketing your product, not on getting your blog to make money.

Even still, maintaining a blog is one of the best ways of getting people to know about what it is you do. It’s a fantastic marketing tactic that you should absolutely utilize when you decide to launch your own business.

As an online entrepreneur, it’s entirely up to you what you want to do.

If you have a service that you want to give away for free, you’ll probably need to get some advertisers on board so you can earn an income.

If you want to charge money for your services, then you’ll probably want to stay away from putting ads anywhere on your website.

Whatever you decide, make sure you prepare a well-defined business plan.

How to become an online entrepreneur:

I’m definitely not an expert on this topic, but I do have some pointers.

Entrepreneurship requires two things:

  1. Creative thinking
  2. Persistence

As an entrepreneur, you first need to think outside of the box.

And next, you need to continually battle failure.

As any kind of entrepreneur (including blogger), it is highly likely that you will fail multiple times over.

But you can’t let that stop you from achieving your goals.

Get back up on that proverbial horse and keep going.

If you have a really good idea, figure out how to achieve it.

I’d love to give you some good entrepreneurial ideas, but I can’t. While there are some hallmarks of an entrepreneur, there is no way to “teach” entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is like being an artist; you can’t teach someone to be an artist, but you can encourage a person’s creativity. When that creativity blossoms, this person will produce a great piece of art.

Start a website, market it, get people talking about what it is you do, seek feedback, and keep growing. If your product is truly great, the market will appreciate it and you’ll be successful.

If it isn’t, then you need to either keep refining it or find something else to do.

Again, being any kind of entrepreneur requires a lot of patience and dedication. Just because you think you have a great idea doesn’t mean the rest of the world will understand it.

But don’t let that stop you.

Keep going.

Never stop going.

Other things to do:

In order to maximize your potential as a valuable online worker, you should do a few basic things:

  • Build and maintain an active social media presence (especially LinkedIn).
  • Build and maintain an up-to-date online portfolio.
  • Keep all relationships professional (don’t ever spam anyone).
  • Always be looking out for new opportunities.

Becoming A Digital Nomad

As I have said many times before, and as I will continue to say, being a digital nomad is hard work.

It’s not nearly as glamorous as everyone makes it out to be.

That said, it definitely does have its perks.

For me, I love the freedom of traveling whenever and wherever I want. I love being able to decide to go somewhere one day and then go there the next day. I love being able to intermingle with all kinds of different people. I love sampling different foods, speaking different languages, and learning about different cultures.

And I love writing about what I learn.

These are the perks of being a digital nomad… for me.

I encourage you to explore what the perks of being a digital nomad are for you.

Find out how you can live the kind of life that you want to live.

Find out how you can break free from the office, break free from a boss, and break free from the “traditional” way of life.

Find out what the world has to offer.

Find out what it means to be a digital nomad.

So now…

You know that you want to do it…

You know how to do it…

Now all you need to do is…

Get up and do it.

    Hi Eric,

    Great stuff!

    I prefer blogging. Being a 6 year digital nomad who has circled the globe I tend toward blogging because you can sell anything through a blog. I also render my services, from freelance writing to blog coaching, through my blog too. No brainer for building trust, for helping folks, for having fun and building a digital nomad empire, all while circling the globe.

    I’d add how having a few active income streams but a ton of passive streams serves you well. Especially if active streams involve live, in-person, scheduled appointments. I never know how the internet will be, strength-wise, in some remote spots. Also time zone differences to deal with. So although I do grow my blog consulting business on the road as a digital nomad I focus heavily on building my passive income streams like selling eBooks, audio books and my courses. Big time easier to build a thriving business as a digital nomad that is not dependent of live appointments between folks from all over the globe, sometimes meeting with less than solid connections on my side.

    Awesome post bro! A big digital nomad thumbs up 🙂


    1. Eric

      Killin it, Ryan! Yeah, blogging is definitely a great way to go, and is also related to entrepreneurship. It’s great for those people who are driven, and creative, and have lots and lots of vision (as well as time and patience). But some people really don’t like working with all those moving parts. I sure don’t, lol. Building an empire is a great thing to do, but sometimes I neither have the time nor the patience to spend 2.5 hours learning one CSS code to get one picture to be formatted correctly .. lol. For those who prefer to keep a low profile and a relatively frictionless lifestyle, working on another’s contract is definitely a viable means of earning a living.

      And the lifestyle is not easy. I’m currently living in an area with atrocious internet. It’s extremely frustrating having to battle the internet everytime I try to work. I’d say most of my day is spent looking for decent internet 😀

      Keep it up, buddy! Glad to hear all is well!!

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for your good article. freelancing is a good profession but 80% can not a success due to the patient and dedication. A newcomer cannot manage a job because his profile is empty.

    Can you please make one article for a newcomer .


    1. Eric

      Hey MD Ataur, I would agree that most people can’t stay dedicated to this kind of work and lifestyle, but I would disagree that this method is ineffective for newbies.

      I have gotten many freelance jobs without a portfolio simply by doing what I suggested in the article: Offering a direct sample of the work I would be performing.

      That said, you can also choose to do “free” work for a time just to build up a portfolio or do a series of “mock” works. The portfolio is not a requirement, but it definitely helps.

      If you’re talking about specific freelancer sites, then yes, this is a major problem with these sites. That’s why I outlined a better method of finding freelance clients in this article. Don’t rely on freelancing sites; they are very flawed. Instead, be proactive and find your own clients. You will not only find more work, you will be paid a lot better and be able to build better relationships.

  14. Rajveer singh

    Absolutely right
    I also started as freelancing job but still i m very far away from my first client.
    can you suggest me?

    1. Eric

      I can try to help, Rajveer, but it’s hard without knowing what it is you’re doing. You first need to make sure that you’re really good at your job. After you’re confident in your abilities, you need to be proactive by going out and finding clients.

      Do what I suggested in the article: Offer up a sample to the company along with your letter of interest. But make sure that what you are offering is high-quality.

      And most of all, keep trying!!! It may not work the first time. In fact, it probably won’t. You just need to keep going, and eventually, it will work.

      1. Rajveer

        Thank u very much
        Yes I am web developer and I bet many jobs but as beginner I think it’s very taugh for me.

      It’s true, Jackson. If you have a skillset that people need, you can do that job. If that job is based on the internet, you can work from anywhere!!

    Hi Eric,

    Great article, I especially love the pic of the cute puppy. You’re definitely correct about how easy it is to offer services as a freelancer.

    I am actually working as a WordPress freelancer. I like the flexibility that it offers, One of the biggest reasons that people avoid freelancing is because they don’t think they have anything they can offer.

    However, we all have special skills that we can offer. We just need to get over the fear and get out there and find the clients. Finding the clients was my biggest struggle when I first started freelancing.

    However, just like blogging it takes time. You’re right you just need to do it and most of all never quit.

    I agree, Harsh’s blog is awesome and I’ve used it as a resource to help me learn about blogging. While I don’t use Adsense on my blog, I have learned quite a bit about affiliate marketing.

    Thanks for sharing this article and I know that it will help so many people utilize the Internet to create that digital nomad job that they love.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Thanks for the reply, Susan.

      You’re definitely right about people thinking they don’t have anything to offer. It’s more a matter of people just figuring out what they’re good at and what they like doing, because all of us have something to offer. Once we figure out what we’re good at, finding a client is no problem; we just need to look for people that don’t have the skills we have.

      Glad you’ve figured that out and are working a great freelancing career!

      PS I would give that puppy money…

    Hey Eric,

    It’s an era of freelancing where people are making money from their homes. And it’s good for everyone.

    The website owners are getting better freelancers and both seem to be happy. But it’s not as easy as it seems.

    You can sell photographs, start a blog, do some other creative work but it takes a lot of time.

    The freelancing websites can help you but only if you have a strong audience.

    Having a website for your portfolio is the must.

    Keep chasing your dream and one day you will live a happy digital nomad life.

    Thanks for sharing with us.
