How to Make Money Playing Video Games
You play video games? Are you good at them? Do you know all kinds of things about a particular video game? Things like quests, locations, maps, techniques, tricks and all kinds of other stuff? This information you have learned is very valuable and you can make money from this! This tutorial shows you how to make money from your video game playing without spending a nickel. Of course that doesn’t include the cost of the game (Which you already paid for).
1. Keep a notebook of things you learn while you play your video game
That’s the whole shooting match in a nutshell and it is really all you need to do to start making money from your video game playing. Now all of this involves work. And what I mean by work is that you have to take notes about stuff in the video game and you have to log into your blogger account and write about it. But you are writing about a video game that you love so how much “work” is it really?
Now Let me give you a more detailed accounting of what to do
STEP 1: KEEP A NOTEBOOK
This step is imperative. As you play your video game you learn things, find things and just improve yourself overall. But this kind of stuff is easily forgotten as you move through the game and you move on to new challenges. But you have to remember that you want to transmit what you learned to other people. And to do this well you have to take notes about what you did and how you did it. Draw sketches and keep track of as much as you can. All of this information is very valuable and will make you money. Remember that you are learning things that other game players want to know.
STEP 2: GET A FREE BLOGGER ACCOUNT
Blogger is totally free. It is a website design site that allows you to make your own website in the form of a blog totally free. Every day you can log in and write about your video game. And more importantly you can tie in your google adsense account with them so the ads that show up on the page will earn you money. Here is where you sign up: https://www.blogger.com/start
It’s very easy to use and after about a half hour you will quickly be able to log in and write your game playing stuff. In effect what you will have is your own website devoted to your video game playing tips, tricks, hints and strategies.
STEP 3: WRITE STUFF ON YOUR BLOG
No need to delay. You know a lot about playing your video game so you should get started right away. Write interesting stuff about the game. Give your web visitor all you got and the best you can give them. Write opinions, strategies, tips, hints, tricks and anything at all that is related to the game. You can give them other links to valuable information and anything at all you think they would be interested in. Give it all away and make it as good as you can. What does the player of your game want to know?
STEP 4: SIGN UP FOR A FREE GOOGLE ADSENSE ACCOUNT AND A FREE AMAZON AFFILIATE PROGRAM
I have a strong recommendation here. Before you sign up for these accounts I recommend you work on your blog for a couple of weeks. Put up lots of good information about the game first. Post a new post every day if you can. Google and Amazon don’t want to have their stuff displayed on junk websites with no good information. But they love websites, even little websites, with good information. So write a lot of stuff first then when you have a good number of posts then apply for the google and amazon programs. They are free!
When you are approved for google you can then input your account number into your blogger account which makes the ads that show up on the pages of your blog your own. They will earn you money in your google account.
STEP 5: KEEP WRITING
This is the most important part of the whole process. You have to keep writing new stuff to your blog. The web thrives on new and fresh information and you have to keep adding stuff to your blog. Keep writing in your notebook and keep writing to your blog. Try to do at least one post every day. Do more if you can.
DOES THIS STUFF REALLY WORK?
Absolutely! This will make you a nice stream of money and the more you do the more you will make. It is a function of two things: 1. How good is the information you write? Good information will bring in the visitors and these visitors will tell their friends. And 2. How much you keep after it. You have to keep doing it. Keep writing and adding stuff every day. It takes a month or two before the internet will notice your site but if you keep adding stuff you will bring in the traffic. People will come to your site and you will make money.
