Work isn’t easy to come by in Cambodia. Yes, there are many bars who are always seeking ‘lively’ western staff, but pay is very low and normally subsidised by free meals, drinks and possibly free accommodation.
That said, it’s not for everyone. So what if you don’t want to work in a bar and you haven’t got the money or inclination to buy your own?
I’ve met a number of people across Cambodia and Thailand that earn their income ‘Online’. This is very easy to set up, but does require a certain amount of time to be spent on the site, keeping it updated and of interest to visitors. However there is money to be made.
There are many affiliate schemes available to match the ‘theme’ of your website, everything from travel insurance, credit cards etc, to Hotel booking and travel accessories. Assuming your website is Travel Related of course.
You could start a website with any ‘theme’ though, all of us have hobbies or interests that could be of interest to others, think about it, then make a few notes.
If you get the ‘focus’ of the site right though, it’s quite possible to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars each month.
Starting your website shouldn’t cost more than around $100 usd, and it’s pretty safe to say there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get this money back over the next year at the very least. If you get the ‘focus’ of the site right though, it’s quite possible to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars each month.
More than enough to fund your stay in Cambodia.
