1.     Find your niche

Yes, it is tempting to try everything, from emails up to academic papers. But, in fact, it is better to choose one particular niche. This way one can get better at it as a professional and earn more. Whether you are good at writing promotional materials for companies or scripts for YouTube videos, choose what you like. There are many options, like:

-          Affiliate marketing;

-          Writing brochures;

-          Writing articles;

-          Companies’ websites;

-          Medical copywriting;

-          Sales materials;

-          Advertisement;

-          Academic papers;

-          White papers, guides, etc.

It is important to know that to get the idea of approximate earnings. Travelling can include some surprises and unexpected disbursements. So it is better to stay on a safe side. And try to get travel deals that will save you some money. A starting copywriter might not earn a lot, but the better one gets at it, the more they earn.

2.     Choose the way to attract clients

The easiest one is to make a profile on freelance platforms and find clients there. It is usually very quick and has some security policies regarding payments. The downside is that one should work hard at first to get a good rating and projects score. The other thing is that one needs to apply for each project and do a lot of communication with clients. It takes time and some of the freelancers do not like it. The other opportunity is to create one’s own website and promote it with examples of works. It is a bit more complicated and requires some budget. And the third option is to work for a company that provides copywriters with tasks. One can work for a writing essays service or copywriting agency. So there is no need to find clients on your own, it saves a lot of time. it is also quite secure in terms of payments. So you can enjoy your sightseeing in free time.

3.     Consider working with local clients

Another good way to earn money while traveling is working with clients on the place of stay. One can find them through platforms or forums on the internet. It is especially great to write travel blog posts or reviews on places that tourists visit. This type of content is always in demand. And it might be a form of collaboration. For instance, a resort might provide one with living in exchange for copywriting services. Such deals are not so easy to get, but they definitely are worth it. It is better to have a strong social media presence to apply for it, like travel YouTube channel or Instagram blog.

4.      Be precise with schedule

It often happens that freelancers tend to take too many projects at the same time. It is tempting to earn more and, therefore, travel more. But there is always a risk to not be able to finish everything in time. Or, even worse, compromise on the quality. As working on your reputation, one cannot allow being lazy with quality. It is better to plan one’s work ahead. Create a schedule depending on your abilities and the time you want to spend working. After all, the point of working while traveling is to see other countries.

5.     Be clear about your pricing

It is probably one of the hardest parts of being a copywriter. When only starting off, one will probably compromise on the price. After all, there is not much experience and finished projects. Secondly, there is always a risk to get stuck with a lot of free projects for promotion. They might be useful, but not all of them. One should do research on market pricing and make a decision regarding the time, efforts, and skills.

Conclusion

If you love writing and traveling, there is nothing better than copywriting. It takes almost no special setting and requires a set number of skills. It can be done from any part of the world with internet access. There is also a great demand for all types of written content. Work with locals, get a permanent client, and search for new opportunities. But don’t forget to enjoy your spare time on the other part of the globe!

The Guest Book is such an exciting book and won't be out until May of this year, we suggest that you pre-order this book now. In this novel, you learn about the 3 generations of Milton's as they appear in 1936, 1959 and then in the present day.

Who would think that a simple word "no" would not only hurt Kitty Milton in 1936 as well as for the rest of her life, but would also create a rippling effect for future generations? Kitty and her husband Ogden come from families that are considered the backbone of the country. Not meant to be more then just uttering it at one point in their lives, they enjoy their decadent lives living within their comfortable world - change is beginning to take shape in other areas.

As we move onto 1959, we move from Maine to NYC where we see Kitty in the next phase of her life and two strangers emerge within her family. One has garnered the attention of her daughter while another makes them evaluate the state of their family and what it stands for as change continues.

This change is so present that the very finances of the family are at risk now that Kitty has passed on and in finding out how they can keep the island due to not being able to afford, it they must dig into their family history to uncover myths that threaten the image of the family.

When things get too hectic and you need to take time to just relax, there is nothing better then having a coloring book nearby where you can organize your thoughts by drawing. We're loving this coloring book because it is a merge between applying colors to a city while being transported to inspired locations.
