The business environment sure has changed in the last 10 to 20 years. Long gone are the days where you have to go to an office and push papers around. These days, people work from the beach or anywhere they like.
The term digital nomads are becoming more and more popular and for good reason. This lifestyle offers freedom! Freedom to work from any location in the world. Freedom to choose your business hours. And the freedom to spend more time doing things you love with the people you love and less time working.
But to make this type of lifestyle a success, you’ll need some basic tools other than a mile long bucket list. In fact, without these tools, you probably won’t get very far. Here’s what you’ll need:
A Killer Website
A website is more than just an online profile. A website can be used to generate an income big enough to support your lifestyle. But not just any old website will do. You need a professional, aesthetically pleasing, optimised, mobile-friendly website that is updated with fresh content on a regular basis. You could update the content yourself in the form of regular blog posts or you could hire a professional to do it for you.
Another thing you need is a marketing strategy. Without proper marketing and a monetisation plan, your website will be useless. Think social media channels, ad campaigns etc. Again, a professional web and software developer can take care of this for you.
Cloud Storage and Backup Software
Since you won’t be bound to an office you’ll need somewhere to store your information and business data. This will protect your business should your laptop crash for some reason or get stolen. Reliable cloud storage and backup software like Acronis are not negotiable if you want to be successful as a freelancer.
Bulk SMS or Email Communication Software
Communicating with your client base via your smartphone will take forever.
