Writing content is not the only way to freelance over the internet, with visual media creators, web designers, and programmers all in high demand. If you already have any of these skills, it may be possible to start your own business and start living the boat life of your dreams. Just like writing, other freelance work can be carried out from any location with very little investment. While visual work may require a larger laptop screen or separate monitor, there is nothing you can’t do from your boat.
There are many websites dedicated to online job postings, and others dedicated to freelance photography and website design. Along with large global freelance websites such as Upwork and Fiverr, some disciplines are associated with their own dedicated services where people can find qualified and experienced workers.
From photography and logo design through to all aspects of website development, remote work opportunities abound in the tech sector. While most online jobs are highly competitive, work is fairly easy to come by if you have specific skills in data science, blockchain applications, cybersecurity, and specific languages such as Scala and Ruby.
