Employees that Employers Should Look for

So while a highly skilled programmer will easily be able to finance his travels in South East Asia with a few hours of work per week, a copywriter will have to do a lot more to finance his travels.

In order to help you to travel the world while working online I have composed a list of skills and jobs you can learn that can help you to easily generate a minimum income of $1000 a month by working online. This is not a lot if you live in New York, London or Munich but it’s definitely enough to fund your travels without having to save up too much money, simply by moving your office to the beaches of South East Asia or Central America and then grow your business from there.

1 Copywriting

Copywriting is not the best paid job in the world, but if you are a Native English or German speaker for example, you can still easily make around $15 an hour – enough to finance your travels in countries with a low-cost of living if you work four hours a day. You can also specialize in SEO, which will help you to charge even more. Another great thing about copywriting is that you can gain a lot of experience by writing articles for others and getting paid for it, giving you a valuable insight into how other Internet entrepreneurs make their money.

Chances are you already know how to write, so you could start today by applying for jobs on outsourcing sites such as Freelancer.com. These sites rely heavily on the reviews of previous clients, so to break into the market be sure to approach every bid with a personal note, sell yourself a little under value and deliver great content to those who give you the opportunity. Start low and once you have built your reputation you can charge more and make more. The more reviews you build up and the more professional you become, the higher the income potential. You have to like writing though, otherwise you will probably end up hating the job and giving up on the way.

2. Virtual Assistance

Virtual Assistance is a very broad topic – and may be likened to being a jack of all trades but a master of none. E-Mail correspondence, answering Skype phone calls, data entry and updating websites are just some of the jobs you can do. This was actually the first online job I ever did, when I started to work for German and Swiss clients while living in South Africa. Within four months it allowed me to quit my job in a tourism agency, making the same monthly wage in just two weeks and spending the rest of my free time studying the online skills I was actually interested in.
