20 Ways to Make Money from a Computer

If you carry a computer around and feel comfortable working online, the world is your oyster when it comes to remote work.

Freelance Writing

Freelance writing is in hot demand, and you can get work in so many places, from working for a larger company or starting your own blog writing business.

In fact, I have several people who write blog posts for my site, The Wayward Home. A good place to find blog writing jobs is on the Problogger Job Board.

Aside from writing blog posts, you can pitch to magazines, newspapers and online media outlets.

You can ghostwrite, write technical or white papers, or write copy for someone’s website or email list.

Need help getting started? Here are some resources from one of my favorite freelance writers, Lindy Alexander, who is an expert in magazine writing.

Start a Niche Website, aka, Blog

Starting a blog, aka a niche website, isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme, but if you love everything about writing, digital marketing, email marketing, and being your own boss, this could be a great way to get started making money remotely.

You’ll have to learn how to choose a niche, do keyword research and write posts for the internet. Niche sites can make some serious money if you go about creating them the right way.

I make a full-time income from my site, The Wayward Home, which is over 6 figures per year. And in the beginning, I knew NOTHING about blogs or niche site creation.

This is a great way to make money on the road as once you get it up and running, a niche website is mostly passive income. I make the same from ads and affiliates whether I work or don’t work, which is amazing.

Bookkeeping

If you’re into crunching numbers, you may want to think about starting your own virtual bookkeeping business.

There is an incredibly high demand for bookkeepers, and the best part is that you don’t need to be in any specific location to do the job. You are able to work virtually from your computer from your campervan or RV.

This business is obviously for a very specific type of person. In order to find out if you fit the criteria, I invite you to watch this FREE video webinar, presented by the Founder of Bookkeeper Launch, Ben Robinson. 

Social Media Management

The number of blogs, YouTube channels, Tik Tok and Instagram accounts are growing by the day. You can jump on this trend and become a social media manager for all types of businesses, whether you work for an online content creator or sign up with a company.

Graphic Design

Becoming a graphic designer is the perfect way to make money from the road as a van lifer. Tons of companies need graphic designers, myself included!

I currently hire people to create social media graphics, YouTube graphics, charts and images for blog posts, templates and PDFs. If you have an eye for design, this could be the perfect remote work opportunity for van life.

Proofreader

Are you really good with grammar and have an eye for detail? Being a proofreader might be just up your alley if you’re wondering how to make money on the road. There are plenty of writers out there who need someone to go over their work with a fine-toothed comb.

If you’re not sure about proofreading as a way to make money, proofreader Caitlin Pyle offers a free webinar for people interested in proofreading. 

To check out the free webinar, go here: Webinar: Learn the Skills you need for a career in proofreading.

Transcriptionist

If you don’t mind listening and typing away on your computer, transcription might be just the gig for you.

Plus, you could listen to audio and transcribe anywhere from your campervan to make extra money – you don’t even need an internet connection!

There are two types of transcription services you could offer – legal and general.

You can take a free transcription mini-courseto learn more about transcription and see if it might be right for you.

Virtual Assistant

A virtual assistant takes on administrative tasks for content creators or businesses. I have virtual assistants for my website who take over a variety of jobs I don’t like to do. Here are some examples of what you can do as a virtual assistant:

  • Writing and responding to emails
  • Formatting Wordpress blog posts
  • Finding images for Wordpress signs
  • Managing social media
  • Managing a calendar
  • Graphic design
  • Uploading pins to Pinterest and writing descriptions
  • Making short-form videos

Podcast Producer

The podcast industry is booming, with over 5 million podcasts worldwide, with the majority of listeners in the U.S.

Podcast producers can take on a variety of tasks, from editing audio and video, to uploading to pocast host and video platforms, to writing show notes and creating social media images for podcasts.

I’ve seen podcast producers that charge around $1,500 PER PODCAST for four episodes per month. So as you can see, the money can rack up if you start this sort of business.

Video Editor

If you love editing video, there are plenty of companies out there, and YouTubers, who need your help. Video editing positions tend to be a great way to make extra money on the road. Of course, you’ll need video editing skills, a computer and the software required to make these types of edits.

Facebook Ads Manager

You can also make good money on the road as a Facebook ads manager. There are courses out there that teach you exactly how to run Facebook ads, and then you can approach businesses and offer your services. If you have a passion for copywriting, analytics and image creation, this might be for you.

Online Coaching or Consulting

You wouldn’t believe how many online coaches there are these days, and they make big bucks! If you are an expert in a particular field, or if you are just passionate, you can build a thriving coaching business you can do from anywhere.

I know all types of coaches, from life coaching, to business mentorship, to parenting and sleeping, to real estate, to cryptocurrency, and more.

Course Creation

You can also make money while traveling by creating an online course. This is similar to coaching, but you’ll record videos and write text surrounding your area of expertise. You can market an online course through course creation platforms like Udemy, or by creating your own following via social media, YouTube or a blog.

Course creation can be very lucrative, especially if you understand how to market it using Facebook and Instagram ads.

Online Business Manager

An online business manager, also known as an OBM, is someone who helps an online business with strategy, marketing, operations and systems. Here are some examples of tasks and online business manager might take on:

  • Business strategy
  • Operations management
  • Team management
  • Financial management
  • Systems and technology management
  • Marketing and communications
  • Business analysis and reporting
  • Project Management

Write Romance Novels

You might think I am kidding, but the romance market is HUGE in the United States. Romance accounts for 23% of the fiction market, which means readers are just hungry for the genre.

If you love to write and are wondering how to make money on the road, this could be a really fun way to earn money while living the van life. Heck, you could even write van life based romance novels, go figure!

Create Printables and sell them on Etsy

Printables are a good business idea if you’re into creating graphics. In fact, RVer Emily Baldwin has a bustling Etsy printable business, which she combines with other business ventures to make money while RVing.

Interested in learning more about the online printables business?

Website Designer

A web designer designs websites for businesses, bloggers and sole proprietors. They decide on styling, colors, fonts and images that appear on the homepage and any other pages. This is a lucrative business that’s a great van life job. In fact, I hired someone to design my website, The Wayward Home, and it cost around $4,000. Some web designers charge $15,000-$20,000!

Usually, a web designer uses a combination of HTML, CSS and existing themes to create a stylish and informative website.

Web designers are in high demand, and it’s a job you can do with simply a computer and an internet connection.

Digital Marketing

Offer digital marketing services, such as search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, email marketing, or content marketing, to help businesses improve their online presence and generate leads or sales.

You can also learn how to do Google retargeting ads to help people with brand awareness on platforms like Google and YouTube.

Start an Amazon FBA business

An Amazon FBA business done while living on the road takes a bit of time to get started, but eventually, with the right product and support, it’s a great way to make money. One full-time RVing family, The Roving Foleys, made over $100,000 with their Amazon FBA business.

If you’re curious about starting an Amazon FBA business, you can take a this FREE Amazon Starter Course by The Selling Family, who also makes $100,000 per year on Amazon.

Become a Tax Preparer

Everyone needs their taxes done, right? As a tax preparer, you can work from anywhere as long as you have a computer and an internet connection.

You can learn to prepare both individual and business tax returns, and business will be booming.

Want to know if becoming a tax preparer is right for you?

Sell Your Services on Gig Working Platforms

If you’re a jack of all trades and like to do everything from creating short-form video, to graphic design, to freelance writing, to video editing, to Facebook ads, you might want to get on a gig economy platform. Here are a few popular platforms you can try:

Data Entry

Data entry is a popular way to make money on the road as a van lifer as it allows for flexibility in working hours and location.

With this type of remote work, you would be responsible for accurately inputting and managing data into digital systems, spreadsheets, or databases. This may involve tasks such as data validation, data cleansing, data analysis, or data migration.

Data entry is typically detail-oriented and requires strong organizational and computer skills, making it an ideal option for van lifers who can work independently with a reliable internet connection.

Find a Remote Job

Many companies are offering remote positions throughout the U.S. You can browse job boards for part-time and full-time work in your area of expertise. If you want to learn more about remote work, you can join Camille Attell’s FREE Remote Work Masterclass.

Take Your Current Job Remote

A lot of people forget that you might just be able to ask your employer to work remotely. Your boss might be more amenable to this than you think! It’s worth a try, though. Two van lifers I know, Sierra Eberly and Amber Baldwin, both started out taking their current jobs remote while they figured out how to create their own remote jobs.

Tips on Starting Your Own Business on the Road

Sierra Eberly started her own business on the road

Many of the computer options I mentioned above require finding clients and crafting your own online business strategy. I know this can seem VERY daunting, but it IS possible.

In fact, if you are wondering how to create your own business from a campervan, you should check out my interview with Sierra Eberly of Boondock Consulting. She left a lucrative 9-5 job to start a copywriting business on the road, and she is one of my amazing writers!

Listen to our interview here:

Here are some basic tips for starting a lucrative business

Identify Your Skills and Interests

Before starting an online business, it’s essential to identify your skills and interests to make sure you’re going to love what you’re doing and stay motivated. Make a list of your talents, hobbies, and areas of expertise. Think about what you are passionate about or things that other people typically need your help with.

After creating this list, try to figure out which skills could translate into a profitable business. You can do some preliminary research and find other businesses that are doing well, and try to figure out what has made them successful.

Find Your First Clients

Once you’ve figured out exactly WHAT you want to do, the next step is to promote your services to potential clients. Here’s how to get started:

  • Build an online presence: Create a website or social media profiles to showcase your work and connect with clients. Engage with your audience, send messages, comment on others’ posts, and join Facebook groups relevant to your niche.
  • Network: Join online communities or go to van life events to connect with potential clients, partners, and mentors.
  • Offer promotional offers and discounts: To get new clients right off the bat, you can offer discounts or free trials. Van lifer Sierra Eberly regularly offers a free article to new clients.
  • Ask for referrals and testimonials: Your first customers can become powerful advocates for your business. Encourage clients to refer friends and colleagues or leave testimonials on your website or social profiles.

How to Make Money on the Road Without a Computer (25 Ideas!)

There are lots of readers who come to The Wayward Home wondering how to make money on the road, but they aren’t computer savvy. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to make decent money so you can have even more freedom. Here are some ideas!

Get a workamping job

There are so many campgrounds and resorts out there looking for people to do workamping jobs. These can range from anything to raking leaves, to managing a gift shop, to answering the office phone. 

Sharee Collier is a workamping expert, and she talks about how to find workamping jobs in this post: How to make money and RV with workamping jobs.

Check out my podcast about workamping jobs with Sharee Collier:

Scour Craiglist

One time, when I was in college, I looked for odd jobs on Craigslist for ways to make money. Over a few days, I helped a woman sort through boxes and organize her house! It was a strange experience, but I needed the spending money.

If you’re living the van life on the road, get on that city’s Craiglist site and look under the gigs section to find people hiring for random jobs.

This could be anything from helping someone move, to packing boxes, to organizing paperwork, to participating in a random video shoot.

Check out how full-time RVer Camille Attell found work on Craiglist: 6 ways I’ve found remote work while full-time RVing.

Rent out your campervan or RV for a few days

I know it’s hard for many of you to part with your beloved camper van or RV, but there are several ways to rent your vehicle out for a few days and make some extra money on RV Share or Outdoorsy

Amazingly, some people have turned this line of work into a full-time job!

You can do this while you are staying with family, for example, if you just want this to be a short-term gig.

Offer pet sitting or dog walking

Petsitting and dog walking are great ways to make money on the road. There are many RVers and van lifers who travel with a pet, and can’t take their dog on hikes in national parks. You could be a pet sitter to help these nomads and earn some extra cash.

Or, if you are near a city, you could start your own dog-sitting website or use a service like Rover, where you make a profile that’s shown to homeowners in a particular area.

Find seasonal work

Back when I was in college, I worked at Gap over the winter break. It was just one month of work and an easy job to boot. All I had to do was go in after hours and stock shelves, fold clothes, pull items out of the back storage room. Tons of store hire for seasonal retail work over Christmas to help with the influx of sales and customers.

Finding seasonal work is a great way to make money on the road. In winter, many retail stores hire seasonal workers, but if you’d rather be outside, ski resorts hire seasonal workers as well.

Manage properties for people with Airbnbs

A lot of busy homeowners don’t want to deal with managing their Airbnb properties. That’s exactly what Elin Rose does, a sailing woman who does a variety of odd jobs to fund her travels.

She coordinates with the handymen, the house cleaners, and the renters to make sure everything runs smoothly with the Airbnb rental.

Sell plasma

This isn’t a good odd job for the squeamish, but you can definitely make extra money selling plasma. According to WalletHacks, you can make $20-$50 for every donation. I saw in one van life Facebook group a person making $200-$300 per month selling plasma.

Donating plasma is more of a hassle than simply donating blood. First, the blood is taken from your body, the plasma is sorted out, and the blood is funneled back in.

It’s a time-consuming, not-so-fun process, which is why you’ll get paid.

Work at a dude ranch

Maybe you love the open-air plains of the wild west. Maybe you’re into horses and cows. Whatever the reason, there are plenty of jobs available at dude ranches across the United States.

Here are some of the jobs you could get at a dude ranch: line cook, office coordinator, wrangler, waitstaff, maintenance worker, ranch hand, you name it.

To find a job on a dude ranch, go to the Dude Ranchers Association website, which represents well over 100 ranches.

Work at a national park

Many national parks all around the United States hire workers for temporary or seasonal jobs. These jobs can run the gamut from mechanics, to museum curators, to data analysts to landscape architects.

There really is a job for anyone, plus, you get to be at a gorgeous national park!

Seasonal jobs are either for the summer months or the winter months. This might be one of the best van life jobs out there.

Imagine waking up in a national park, and making money while you’re at it!

Run errands with Task Rabbit

The gig economy means there’s plenty of random tasks being hired out in cities across the United States.

You can join Task Rabbit and become a Tasker, which means doing anything from helping someone move, to assembling furniture, to home improvement, to heavy lifting. There are plenty of ways to make money here.

Make deliveries with Postmates

Postmates is a team of couriers who deliver anything from a store or restaurant.

If you sign up to do deliveries, it’s on your time and your watch, and you can pick where you work and what you’ll deliver. The app allows people in many cities across the United States to order from restaurants, grocery stores and personal items for delivery in under an hour.

You can read more about being a Postmate in this article: What it’s like being a Postmates delivery guy

Offer tutoring services

If you find yourself living the van life near a certain city for awhile, you might want to offer up services as a tutor as a way to make money on the road, especially if you’re good at math, science, a foreign language, or writing.

You could post an ad on Craigslist, or call schools you’re close to and ask how to get involved as a tutor.

I know at least two people who make $100 per hour tutoring. One lives in San Francisco and another is in Houston, so you never know when you might get a lucky break tutoring.

Work as a bartender

When my sister was traveling and living on the road for a year, she and her boyfriend were always looking for ways to make extra money.

They decided to stop at an RV park in South Florida for several months, and she got a job working at a bartender at the beach.

She said it was a good experience, mostly serving snowbirds, and she was able to make a decent income. If you’re planning on hanging out in one place for awhile, this could be a good option.

Become a flea market flipper

If you’re driving around in your van or RV, why not stop and look through a thrift store or a flea market here and there. You could then mark those items up and sell them via eBay.

Melissa of FleaMarketFlipper.com made $40,000 in a year just flipping items.

She and her husband have a FREE webinar on flipping flea market items.

Become a campground host

If you’re flexible in your traveling and love people and management, you might want to consider becoming a campground host to make money while traveling.

These are not high-paid jobs but could keep you busy for a few months out of the year. Plus, you’ll get a free place to park your rig.

You can also search for campground jobs through this website: Work for RVers and campers

Do harvesting and farm work

There are several websites where you can look for harvesting and farm work, much of which is done seasonally. The Sugar Beet Harvest is wildly popular, with some people banking thousands of dollars in just a few weeks.

According to Sugar Beet Harvest’s website: “American Crystal Sugar and Sidney Sugars hires over 1300 workers stationed at 45 sugar beet receiving stations. These seasonal employees are an integral part of making yearly sugar production a great success. These short-term positions offer excellent compensation and attract applicants from all over the United States and Canada. Locals and travelers alike come to make a hefty paycheck while being able to enjoy various outdoor attractions and campsites.”

Become a mobile mechanic

If you’re living in a campervan or RV, there’s no doubt you’re going to come across people who need help with their rig.

Whether that’s providing oil changes or more advanced work, this could be a great little business to start on the road. First, you’d need to brush up on your mechanic skills, or learn how to be a mechanic in the first place.

Set up a website and connect with other RVers and van dwellers to find work on the road.

Offer your trade to other fellow travelers

Are you an electrician, a woodworker, or a metalworker? Think of ways you can use these skills on the road to make extra money.

My boyfriend is an electrical contractor and a general handyman, and when we start cruising on the sailboat, I know he’ll find ways to fix other people’s boats.

This can be done through networking, social media, services you offer on your website, etc. I know if I were out traveling in a van, I’d love to find a mobile mechanic if I had an issue!

Work at a restaurant

Oftentimes, you’ll be able to find a restaurant to work at for a while when you’re driving through a town. This could be anything from hosting, to washing dishes, to bussing tables, to becoming a server.

Of course, this all depends on how long you’re going to be in a particular place, but could be a good way to bring in some much-needed cash.

Join the Amazon Camperforce

Amazon’s Camperforce is a group of seasonal workers who take positions in Amazon’s warehouse, doing anything from picking, packing, stowing and receiving.

Camperforce has gotten some mixed reviews, but might be good for some people. You can read all about it in the book Nomadland, which followed RV dwelling retirees to their jobs in Amazon warehouses.

Grocery shop with Instacart 

Instacart is a service that lets people farm out their grocery shopping to personal shoppers. I’ve seen this growing in popularity in San Francisco, where people think its too much of a pain to navigate driving and parking to get their own groceries.

Becoming an Instacart shopper means you fulfill orders by shopping at stores like Safeway and Whole Foods, then deliver those goods.

Try busking on the side of the road

If you’re a good musician, you may want to try busking to bring in some money. It may not sound glamorous, but if you’re good, and in the right town, it could be a good way to bring in extra cash while you’re living on the road and have fun while you’re at it!

Work as a day laborer

Have you ever been to Home Depot or a similar store and seen all those workers milling around on the corner? They are day laborers, waiting to get picked up to work on a job.

If you have any construction skills, you could easily work as a day laborer in any city, and in some places, they are paid well.

  1. Thanks so much for including me + my business on this list! Having a product business on the road can be difficult (and take up a lot of storage!), but when you’re passionate about something, it doesn’t feel like work at all 🙂

    1. Totally! Good luck Callee! I think its inspiring for other travelers to read these real-life accounts. Everyone should be able to live the life of their dreams!

  2. Alexander Noorman says:

    I am a changemanager, I live on a sailing carrier houseboat called la dolce vita which I moor in harbours close to where I temporary work. Other weeks in the year I live in my capervan a Mercedes Vito in Europe and I still backpack 4 – 8 weeks a year around the globe. The last 20 years this is my Life. I think if more people live childless and at the places they love to be the world would be a better place.

    1. Wow, this is amazing. Thanks so much for sharing. I also think people need to work less, travel more, and be in nature more! It makes everyone happier and more well balanced. Good luck on your journey!

  3. This is the best comprehensive list I have seen yet for ways to make money on the road. Thank you so much for creating and sharing it! I am seriously considering van life and will definitely look at this in the future!

    1. Great! I’m so glad you found it helpful 🙂

  29. The jobs you posted will not make someone money enough to live off of. Migrant laborers do not make thousands of dollars for picking artisanal beets. They work until they drop for dollars a day (if they’re lucky). Task rabbit, fivver, and Amazon exploit skilled workers and drive wages down. Day laborers make hardly any money and work in dangerous conditions because employers are predatory and don’t want to pay fair wages or follow OSHA regulations. Sell plasma, are you kidding?!?! It’s painfully obvious you are a white woman who looks at people who do these jobs and assume you will just stroll into them, make money, then go back to your comfortable life when you’re done slumming it. The level of classism and the lack of self awareness is astounding, and I feel terrible for the people on this site that believe you when you say these jobs will provide a living wage because if they follow your advice they will struggle tremendously.

    1. Kristin Hanes says:

      Hey Amy! First thing – actually many of the jobs I posted make enough money to live off of. I am a full-time blogger and make a full-time income. Other jobs I listed such as proofreader, transcriptionist, virtual assistant and freelance writer can also make full-time incomes. The other jobs are just suggestions for people wanting to make a little bit of cash while traveling, and I never said anywhere they are meant to be full-time jobs. These are just ideas – take them or leave them!

    2. Slow your role, Karen. Why are you even here? Obviously, to get to this page, you were searching for income ideas while traveling… So I don’t understand your astonishment at *gasp* income ideas while traveling. These are all very plausible options. All of which, can be done by most anyone. It isn’t “classism.” Anyone can work these jobs. There isn’t an interview where some white man asks, “And what kind of money does your family have? Oh, that just won’t work. NEXT!” LMAO
      Get a grip or leave. You obviously are one of those people who find something to be angry about everything around you. Maybe the nomad life just isn’t for you babe. Take it and move on.

    I worked for concessionaire’s of national parks for 4 years and it was great. I made money, got to travel, and lived all over the country. That was in my early 20’s. Now in my late 30’s and considering doing it again. My husband and I would love to travel full time in an RV. He is also building his Amazon FBA business and I am working on a blog for supplemental income. We hope to get on the road next year. Fingers crossed. I enjoyed reading this to get other ideas.

    1. Kristin Hanes says:

      Yay!! Glad you enjoyed it and good luck on your journeys!

  33. Bailey Strempel says:

    Thanks for sharing such a fantastic blog and awesome pictures.Great post! I’m definitely going to bookmark this. I really appreciate your article, you have given a good insight and a clear picture.

  34. I certainly don’t agree with some of the above. I fulled timed rv for a few years and I made 120k a year plus minus renting out jet surfboards and skateboards . it became so lucrative that I moved to muskoka Ontario Canada and started selling the concept. seriously guys , sitting on the beach , tanning and earning $200 an hour , a few weeks was enough to sustain a great lifestyle. most places I rv ed had either a beach , a lake or a bike path , I had the wow product to rent out and make some serious cash. no this is not a get rich quick scheme, it about survival and enjoying it and being comfortable. nuff said

    Hi Kristin,
    Might be a bit on the nose, but long haul deliveries such as pets with a company called CitizenShipper https://citizenshipper.com/new-drivers is what a few RVers I know use. There is apparently a monthly fee after a few months, but when you aren’t using my neighbors have told me they can build it for you until you do it again. They don’t make a lot of money, but it pays for a trip out somewhere and a little left over.

    Hello!Is it ok to have a business while living in a van like making cupcakes or pastries?. Something like that..thanks for the respond..and for the ideas🥰

      Hey Ashley! That might be complicated because then you have to deal with food laws in the areas where you’re trying to sell food. Like getting inspections, etc. It may be easier if you’re more stationary in one place. You’d probably need a licensed and inspected food truck. Good luck!

    Thank you for sharing the valuable information through your blog as these are the common mistakes that you should avoid while hiring the van conversions company and from my view, the main mistakes that we should avoid are that the price should be checked and just ensure that does not charge any hidden tax as it is the common mistake the customers are facing while choosing the company.

    You forgot, rob liquor stores. These lists are so funny, as in useless.

    1. I found very good information here and to suggest robbing a liquor store shows your ignorance and lack of being a van life interested person.
