You don’t have to be a gaming coder or hacker to make money in the online gaming industry. In fact, far from it! You can make money from online games if you are a good marketer or even a decent player at your favorite game.
Here we will list 4 ways people are making money online with the online gaming industry without programming or hacking.
All you need is a website that is attractive and good online marketing skills. You can learn how to market any business online from one of several courses online. Udemy.com is one of the best places to look for tips on how to create an attractive website for your niche and how to market it for traffic as well as sales.
Once you have your online gaming affiliate website up and running, you can start to make money. You find a gaming website that offers an affiliate program and apply to become an affiliate. Once you are accepted, you will be given links with a code that will tell the online gaming site that it was one of your visitors that clicked through to their website.
You will then be paid out as per their affiliate marketing program’s terms and conditions.
This type of marketing is very much like affiliate marketing. In fact. some will still call it affiliate marketing because it kind of is. You need the same perquisites such as marketing skills and a website.
The difference here is that in general you are helping the CPA site collect contact details, which they are willing to pay for by all accounts.
For instance, 8 Ball Pool is a very popular online game. It requires an email address to start an account. All you need to do is persuade people visiting your site or social page to sign up with their email address. Other types of signs ups are via Facebook.
You will then be paid as a cost per acquisition.
3.Professional Game Player
If you stand out in the game that you play, then you can possibly make money from that game. For instance, online poker players can become millionaires. There are also those that earn a healthy salary playing poker online.
On the other hand, there are those that make a perfectly decent salary playing poker without being a millionaire in the spotlight. They also avoid the typical 9-5 job in exchange for playing online!
Then there are those professional game players at the top of their game. For example, look at the MOBA gaming industry today. DOTA 2 is an online MOBA game that is free to play. The guys that are the best players in this game never dreamed that they would be become pro players. However, they are and the tournaments that DOTA 2 puts on to bring these players into competition against each other are televised.
As you can imagine, with television comes sponsors and big crowds that love the game. In turn this creates a massive prize pool. The last five-man team in DOTA 2 brought in something like $10 million last year including sponsors and prize money.
If you are at the top of your game, start to challenge the best players and you never know, you may be good enough to become a pro.
