If You Love Online Games, These 4 Side Activities Will Make You Money Online | by Paulo A. Jose | April 2022
I found this on Tumblr
There are many ways to make money from online games without having to gamble.
It doesn’t matter if you are 12 or over 67.
The best side hustles are the ones that have been proven to work.
And the online gambling industry generates over $85 billion every year.
Additionally, anyone, anywhere in the world can start making money doing it.
And you will only need an iPhone, tablet or computer and more wi-fi.
Training in online games on TikTok
TikTok is the fastest growing social network in the world since 2020.
Giving advice in short videos on how to play an online game well on TikTok, can be one of the best hustles around.
Get paid to coach others, teach them tips and strategies, and help them get better at the game they want to master.
The key here is to position yourself as a kid in the middle of a candy store. This can be done through videos, blog posts, and sharing helpful tips and information.
Since success breeds success, you will slowly make yourself known on different social networks and send videos with secret information to subscribers.
Once you have enough of an audience to follow you, you can start giving expert advice, coaching, and teaching other people to think and play online games just like you.
Reuse your TikTok videos and post them to YouTube Shorts
YouTube is still one of the best platforms for making money online.
Many famous video gamers started by uploading videos of their games to YouTube and Twitch.
Gradually they gained an audience, subscribers and subscribers, and there came a time when their channel was approved for monetization.
You only need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of annual YouTube views.
If you are good at what you do, it will be a breeze.
Also, the amount YouTube will pay you will seem small, but as your channel grows and more people subscribe and watch your videos, that income can increase exponentially.
Call this scalable income.
So much so that YouTube channels are the income of many gamers. They live entirely on it.
Here are some of the ways to make money with YouTube:
- Through advertisements in your videos
- Affiliate links/sales of products/services
You can earn extra income every time someone buys what you recommend through your specific links.
This is called affiliate marketing.
Another way to make money from YouTube is to become a member of a channel.
If your channel adds a lot of value to online gaming users, they can donate money to motivate you to keep uploading their favorite content.
This can be a small amount or a very large amount, depending on your follower count.
Plus, all donations are tax-free. In other words, if it is $10,000 that you receive, it will be the $10,000 in the account.
Choose an NFT game
You should now be familiar with NFTs.
NFT – non-fungible tokens that are unique collectible cryptocurrencies that you can play with and generate income.
By participating in crypto NFT communities and playing NFT games, you will generate tokens that you can sell within a crypto broker and turn those tokens into dollars.
These NFT games have allowed many people to earn income above the average salary in their country just by playing a few hours a day.
This is the case in countries such as the Philippines, Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina where the exchange rate of their local currency against the dollar has been devalued.
It also gave them an additional source of income far beyond what they would get from an average 9 to 5 job in their country.
The most famous NFT games in the world today are “Plant vs Undead” and “Axie infinity”.
The first was inspired by Pokémon where you can create small creatures called “axies” and make them fight and the second is by the famous game Plants vs Zombies.
How much can I earn playing NFT games?
It depends if you do it as a hobby.
Don’t just frame TikTok, be a part-time online gamer
If you are very good at what you do, you can participate in tournaments and become known internationally.
Many games have weekly and monthly tournaments. Where sponsors seek out the best digital players to offer perks and sometimes even pay to play.
If you are good, you can not only become a professional gamer online, but also travel the world sponsored by big brands.
Side Hustle isn’t just for Millennials. Choose yours today and start making money online.
