A digital nomad will most likely use an internet website to get started. This creates a central hub for people to find you online and a sort of online property you own synonymous with a house. WordPress is one of the most popular platforms that you can use to build a website with little coding effort. With the use of frameworks, themes, and plugins, you add the form and function aspect to it.

To get more advance and build an even more customized site, you can do many different things. You can learn and build it yourself or outsource to someone who’s more knowledgeable. The easier option would be downloading a framework/theme/page builder program such as Divi/Beaverbuilder/Bootstrap. I’ve been using Divi since starting this website and it has been amazing. Click on any of the Divi links if you want to support me with the affiliate link. Beaverbuilder is similar to divi but doesn’t offer anywhere close to the features of Divi. Bootstrap isn’t something I’ve tried yet but looks just as promising as Divi.

The more difficult option is the learn web development language like HTML/CSS/Javascript. You can learn these skills at Free Code Camp, CodecademyCoursera, or many of the other free online options. This knowledge pairs well with a framework like Genesis, one of the most popular lightweight frameworks out there. You can check out reviews for yourself like I did. You can combine your web development skills with this theme and tweak it exactly to your liking.

Develop your skills to build a basic website first. For all the paths listed below, learning to build an online property, landing page, or basic website knowledge will take you far. If you haven’t noticed, almost every new brand or startup as a website. That should be a big hint for you.

Next up, there are a whole bunch of directions you can take your website or online business. Here are topics that come to mind:

  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Article Writing for Revenue Sharing Sites
  • Amazon or Ebay Dropshipping
  • Niche Sites
  • Blogging/Vlogging
  • SEO Freelancing
  • Web Development
  • Writing Ebooks
