A lot of us do wish to make money by doing something fun. Especially when we as travel lovers see travel vlogs on YouTube or social media, we are often like “man, what a life he’s spending. Traveling all day, getting to visit the world and no care to earn, I wish I could be like him”. Luckily, it is possible but not that easy. What we see on the other side of the video is a traveler who appears happy and peaceful but what we don’t know is that behind the man, is a lot of struggle and hard work to reach such a level.
But worry not like today I would be discussing with you some best ways to make money through travel especially through dubai tours. But before we begin, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
- Earning through traveling requires a huge amount of experience and you should have value and popularity in the field of traveling, which obviously can only happen if you travel often.
- This field is like a business, the more you invest, the more profit you gain.
- It isn’t all about traveling, there are other things to handle as well which are directly related to your traveling.
- It requires determination, motivation, strength, courage, and a lot of struggle.
So let’s start with our countdown of the top 5 ways that can help you earn through traveling:
Earn Through the Internet:
The very first step towards your career in traveling is to let people know you. But most importantly you should have years of travel experience before you start to popularize yourself. You can do that by making your travel page on social media and a channel on YouTube. Keep posting pictures of you at different destinations in the world. Make sure you post interesting stuff because people are not interested in you standing in front of the Eiffel tower. You need to make people engage with you by either showing the positive sides of a highly misunderstood country or by showing people the hidden wonders of the world which people are not aware of. For instance “Eva Zu Beck” is a travel blogger. She visited Pakistan and explored It and showed the world how Pakistan was so misunderstood as a terrorist state but when the audience saw what a beautiful country it is, Eva became popular and probably she is one of the most loved people by PakistanisBasically, you just have to make people interact with you because traveling has a very broad scope and there are thousands of ideas out there waiting for someone to grab. This journey is miles long, it depends on your imagination and creativity and how you manage to interact with the audience.
With a good amount of followers and traffic, you would get ads that will pay you and this is how you reach your first step towards a long journey. Remember, the first step is always the hardest and demands determination but it’s worth the effort.
Travel Blogs and Promotions
If you are a popular traveler, you can either create your blog or write for someone. For instance, your words would have worth, and any travel company that you would write for would pay you for every word you write. In the same way, if these blogs get popular, third parties would share their products with you so you could promote them in writing or your vlog. This would thus become a major source of your earning. There are many travel companies out there and they want someone to write blogs for them. These blogs are a way to promote the company, and similarly, product or website promotion or sponsorship with the help of a popular traveler is another major thing these companies would want to do.
You might be thinking that how you could become this popular. Well, it’s not a big deal. All you need is consistency and determination that would help you struggle for a long time. Also, you are in luck because people love to watch travel vlogs unlike education stuff on YouTube. So you won’t take a lot of time. Just keep your stuff entertaining and interesting that keeps the viewer engaged with you.
Conduct your tours
Another amazing way to earn through traveling is to promote yourself as a tour guide as well. If you are well recognized, foreigners would want you to help them travel across your country and in return they pay you a lot. Similarly, if you plan to travel abroad, you can make a team of new travelers who are not experienced. Take them with you and help them explore and learn the real meaning of exploration. These tourists would pay you back and you can charge them according to what you feel is suitable. Traveling is an expensive thing to do but with others with you, they might even pay your whole tour off. In that sense, you earn extra than you spend.
Publish your E-Books
All of your tour experiences can be compiled in a form of a book. People who are new to traveling or are somehow unable to travel would want to entertain themselves with some of the very interesting incidents you came across during your tours. For instance a funny incident of a traveler asking silly questions to a local or stuff. Because tours are filled with such incidents and they are very interesting to read. You can also write about different cultures and which countries you found to be the most interesting and why, or your thoughts about people in different countries. It’s a vast range of things you can write in your book.
There is a secret that I might want to share with you. Compile your book, adding pictures and a highly attractive name and cover picture. This creates a psychological effect and people would rush to buy your book. For each copy sold, you earn money.
Earn in that particular country
You can also earn in the country that you have visited. There are hundreds of ways for that but if I cut it short, you can do some voluntary work such as painting a children’s school and spending a day with the children, or you could, on longer tours, work part-time at restaurants or other places where you earn a lot. For instance, some countries would pay you $30 for an hour of work. Combining your total time spent on work, you can earn huge amounts of money. There are different opportunities in different countries and we cannot discuss all of them but if you struggle to find some, you can find a suitable job the could help you earn a lot more than you could imagine.
So finally I would erase all the extra or thorough discussion and let you clearly understand the crux of the entire situation. You would have to spend years, perhaps 3-4, struggling and making vlogs and promoting yourself without earning anything and all of what on your expenses. If and only if your promotion of yourself is interesting and makes people engage with you, only then would you find yourself at ease, and automatically you would start to gain followers and your never-ending entertainment would officially begin. All these travelers who earn through traveling have spent a history of struggles that helped them reach such an interesting part of their lives. This journey is broad, complex, exhausting but healthy, entertaining, and peaceful providing all sort of aesthetic satisfaction. Nothing would work if you give up too early. Start today by making your plan and an excellent strategy that would let you travel and earn without causing you to lose more money instead of gaining.
Well, good luck and happy traveling!
