It is obvious that making money on the Internet is not an easy task – cut throat competition drives the margins lower and lower. But one positive trend on making money online I can see is the growth of miscellaneous ways to make money – you can code, design websites, be in affiliate marketing, sell some product from eBay and your website, promote miscellaneous online services (for example, link sales).
One more method that allows you to earn some cash online is MMORPG Gold Selling site. What is MMORPG?
It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game that enables thousands of players to play in an evolving virtual world at the same time over the Internet.
I am not in the game industry and this method is not familiar to me. But David Turnbull knows much more about this.
a. Start a few page website explaining the advantages of buying gold and other equipment. Add contextual ads blended into your website design.
b. Join affiliate programs of numerous MMORPG websites (for instance, MOGS.com, GamerKing.com, IGE.com). The more the better – it will help you with time to select the working programs and drop the inefficient ones.
c. Now you need to promote your website – as you have next to nothing chances to get search engine traffic you need some other ways to get people to know about your website. Recommended ways: join TOP (top 50, best 100) sites.
d. One more promotional technique: join a few active gaming forums and add a link to your website in the signature. From my experience, you should spend some time to explore the subject to look like a knowledgeable person – you are going to post messages on those forums. Another technique – use some wisdom from another forum transferred to a new forum or just keep asking questions (but ‘smart’ asking questions if you want to get some traffic from your link in the signature.
I would recommend you to start browsing the gaming forums: you need some content for your few page website. If you do not want to pay for content – you have to write it yourself. Check also the game websites for FAQ and general descriptions.
Write your content based on your research:
- describe games, why they are great
- rewrite their FAQ
- explain why people need gold and equipment (they need it to save time and enjoy the game not spending much time upgrading their equipment)
Top Sites in Gaming Industry:
Summary: MMORPG’s gain popularity fast. It means that their user database increases and people need products offered on your new website. Do not expect to make a fortune with this technique, but you can ask a few teenagers to help you with this – I primarily mean posting on forums. As a result, your online business gets a new income source, you enjoy a more diversified (and that means a more stable) business.
