5 Ways That you Can Make a Living Online
More and more Australian people are turning to the Internet as a way to make a living, and there has never been a better time to switch to the life of a digital nomad, which offers huge benefits. No more getting up in the early hours and battling the rush hour traffic, not when you work online, and, of course, there is the added luxury of being able to work from any location. Bangkok is one of the most popular destinations for digital nomads, as you can live a great life for a relatively small amount of money, and with that in mind, here are some ideas on making money online to get you started.
Become a Social Media Influencer
This might be a tall order, but there are people with millions of YouTube followers that make a very good living. If you are a funny and self-confident person who has a particular take on life, all you need is a good mic and video cam, and you could get a Nimble loan today that would equip you for the role. Daily postings could gain you quite a following and the funnier you are, the better, however, it should be noted that many try and fail at this.
If you have a natural talent for writing, why not exploit that and become a paid blogger? Simply hook up with an online content agency and you can become a freelance blogger, which means you decide when you work and for how long. Once registered, you simply login every morning and tell the agency if you are available for work, and they will send you assignments with a usual 24-hour deadline. Most pay every 2 weeks and the money can be paid into your PayPal or bank account, whichever you prefer.

Teaching English Online
Even if you have zero teaching experience, if you are a native speaker of English, you can register with one of the many online language institutions, where you would be trained how to teach Chinese kids to speak basic English. Such is the demand, you could teach up to 50 hours per week and you would certainly make a good living, especially after some experience, when you would receive top rates.
Selling Products Online
Setting up an e-commerce website has never been easier and if you do your homework and research the market, there’s no reason why you can’t create a successful shopping cart website. Choose your products carefully and outsource all of your IT and logistics needs and be prepared to invest heavily in digital marketing, as without SEO services, you will likely be an ‘also ran’.
