If you are an avid traveller and love meeting new people and indulging in new cuisines, then you can consider setting up your travel channel on the popular platform YouTube. Millions of people in India and also in different parts of the world are making a decent passive income by uploading their videos on YouTube. You do not have to make any huge investment to start your channel. You can make videos through your smartphone and edit them before posting them on your channel. If you can invest in an external mic for audio then it would be great as most of the inbuilt mic on smartphones do not promise professional quality. Once your channel gains traction, you can start monetizing your channel through affiliate marketing, influencer marketing and through ads. You don’t need a million followers for making money through YouTube. You just need to be creative and plan your content well.

6. Domain Reselling

It doesn’t cost much to register a new domain name. You just need to invest 6$–7$ (500 to 700 INR)h per year or make a monthly payment of around 50 INR. If you can find buyers who badly want to purchase your domain name, then you can quote a higher price than what you paid. For instance, consider that the domain name www.idrone.com has been registered by you. You can wait for a couple of years and wait for a buyer. If Apple decides to purchase it from you, then you can sell it to them by quoting a high price. Domain Reselling is not a quick way of making money. It requires a lot of patience and time. You need to look into the potential of the domain name that you are investing in.

There are numerous ways in which you can derive a passive income while travelling. You just need to identify the options and give them a try. There are thousands of people who are exploring the world from their passive income sources. You can too be one of them if travelling is all you want to do for the rest of your life.
