31: Behind The Scenes Of A Content Creator Couple With Julia & Gidi
“Slowmadding gives you the opportunity to get the know the place better and experience more”
Becoming a content creator couple
Digital nomad couple Julia & Gidi have been nomadding for three years. Unlike many other digital nomads, they started their journey in their home country Israel. The couple sold most of their belongings and continued their European journey. The next stop was in South America and they are talking from the Cozumel island in Mexico. It’s not a big digital nomad hub but offers beautiful scenery and plenty to explore. Not far from the island, you can immerse yourself in a bigger community in Playa Del Carmen.
How they make money online
They started their journey at the start of the pandemic and worked remotely. Julia is a website designer and Gigi makes a living as a developer. Aside from their job, they also turned their passion into a new career path and income stream.
During their travels in Israel, they got invited to participate in a couples shoot to promote a hotel. They both really enjoyed it and this was when they started thinking about continuing this type of work. To make this happen, they have to learn how to take photos, find their niche and reach out to hotels. At the start ,it was often an exchange from a free luxurious and of course, romantic break up to a free stay. As their portfolio grows and they gain more experience slowly, they are getting better at getting more promising deals.
While they still remain in their day jobs, building their businesses is something that drives them. Doing this while traveling requires a lot of work and as a couple, they need to pay attention to their relationship. We also talked about the digital nomad couple lifestyle in the very first episode with Anat & Orr.
Julia & Gidi share the following takeaways for other digital nomad couples to stay productive, relax and find me-time.
✅ During the day they work and try to finish around 6 pm to watch the sunset.
✅ On Fridays and Saturdays they basically don’t touch their computer and have fun outdoors.
✅ Working in separate spots is what they often do like a different room, location or table.
✅ Community is important for everyone and also for nomad couples. Julia and Gidi try to join meetups together or alone to keep expanding their social circle.
✅ As a couple they spend a lot of time together and they like it, although they make a conscious effort to do things individually.
