Making money as a gamer has got to be thousands of people’s dream job. Doing what you love for cash is an awesome feeling, and one that not many people can identify with. Making money online has become easier and safer over the past few years, with the improvements of many platforms for trading and other online revenue sources. Nevertheless, it can be hard to do so if you are just starting out.

For many gamers, making money from gaming can take years to actually happen. Even if you are working hard improving your gaming skills and growing your online audience, actual monetization can take a long time. In the meantime, it is important to have other sources of income.

In this blog we will outline three ways to fund your gaming career in 2021. Let’s get started!

Teach others to game

Gameplay tutorials for popular games are great money makers. If you can explain things in a concise, detailed and easy to follow way, and of course if you are a great gamer, you can earn money doing these tutorials. But how does one break into the gameplay tutorial market?

Establishing a YouTube channel that gets enough traction to make you any money can take a very long time. Instead, you could conduct private lessons – yes, they really exist! – with budding gamers who are looking to improve their skills. You can charge an hourly fee for these classes, that not only earn you money but also improve your skills along the way.

Get into trading

It might sound like a crazy idea for a gamer to become a trading expert to make money, but trading is actually highly relevant to gaming in many ways. Firstly, with the establishment of platforms and improvement of factors that make a great exchange, trading is now safer than ever.

But what does this have to do with becoming a gamer? Trading online is all about strategy. In order to turn a profit you have to have minute attention to detail, keeping your eye on the exact right time to buy and sell your assets. You could improve your deduction and strategic skills while making money too.

Work as a game tester

If you want to work in the gaming industry, not just as an internet gamer, you should consider working as a game tester. Gaming companies recruit semi professional or professional gamers to test games that are in the development stages, giving feedback and helping them to further develop it before release.

Being a game tester involves pushing the game to its limits in the developmental stages. Finding out what doesn’t work, glitching the game, and seeking to find and report limitations or mistakes in the game design and development process.

Essentially, your job is to figure out what’s wrong with it, so paying customers don’t have to. If you want to game for a living, working as a game tester is one of the most fun jobs out there. Not only are you being paid to play, but you are also getting an insight into how games are created.
