Making money doesn’t have to be a chore. For example, did you know there are now free games that pay real money ? If you get good at playing those, you could be making serious money while having fun! Many of us associate money making with back-breaking, where we work in a job or within our own businesses to bring home the bacon (by which we mean money and not actually bacon, unless you’re a pig farmer).
However, it is possible to make money and have fun at the same time, which is perfect, not only for your mental health but for your financial health too, as you will have more money for the fun things in life, as well as those unexpected costs you might have to face.
Here are some ideas.
Play games online
We are living in an age where playing games equates to big money. We aren’t talking about those online casino games akin to Wolf Moon Rising and the like. Rather, we are talking about video games, where money can be earned through advertisers and subscribers to your gaming channel. If you’re particularly good at playing video games, you could also take part in gaming tournaments, be they online or at those gaming venues where audiences will flock to watch you play. This article covers a number of ways to make money from gaming, so have a read, and if you are into gaming, take your passion one step further.
Make money from your crafts
If you have crafty bones in your body (not a medical term, we checked), you could make money selling your art or the things you create. Be it knitted jumpers, pottery plates, works of art, wooden tables, colorful jewelry, or anything else besides, you could sell them online or at your local market and earn a living from your hobbies.
If you are going to sell them online, you could open up your own virtual store or use one of the many eCommerce sites that will allow you the opportunity to sell your wares. For ideas and inspiration, this post details just a few of the options available to you.
Become a YouTube sensation
Chances are, you probably subscribe to YouTube channels already. You might watch people playing video games, or you might watch funny cat videos. Your younger kids might watch other kids unboxing toys and then playing with them, and your teenagers might be addicted to channels offering beauty tips and advice on fashion.
A lot of these people have fun and make a living from creating videos on YouTube, and surprisingly, some have made an absolute fortune. One eight-year-old made $26 million last year (thanks to his parent’s help, of course). You can find out more about him and other big earners on Youtube here.
So, could you become a YouTube star? You could make a lot of money if you had something to offer online audiences, so if you have a particular passion, consider how it might go viral. For this idea and other ways to make money on YouTube, read this blog post to find out more.
The next time you’re in need of some extra cash or inspiration for a new career or a side-hustle, think of the word ‘fun’ when you’re trying to come up with ideas. You will then have the opportunity to boost your bank account and have the chance to do something you really enjoy.
