    hey guys lately i decided that i want to try something new to make money online that is more related to gaming and games
    so i decided i want to buy a server for a game (i think i am going to buy a minecraft server) and try to bank from it by adding alot of mods and ways for the users to upgrade to premium or buy kits in the game to get stronger

    so here is my questions
    i am not really sure how it will go and maybe i will lose money,has somebody tried it yet? did you profit from it?

    Gaming is a huge niche and very lucrative when it is done right. Strangely enough, it is still profitable even if it is not done quite right. :) I don't know your level of knowledge, but a good team is a must for such operations. A while ago I met a guy who was making a lot of money from a browser game which he was designed and was running until he passed away. Although he had 8 guys working for him, he had still worked like 12 hours a day.

    Just don't forget that you always have the possibility to lose money, no matter what kind of business you are running. I would say just give it a go, if you did your planning right and are not afraid of losing that money. Also, you can never know what's gonna happen without trying.

    Good luck!

    I did pretty good several years ago selling Admin rights and custom servers for CS 1.6 and CZ on Steam!


    Good times and best of luck!

    If you dont have team to work on or populate your Game Server then you can loose
    To win you must Calculate rather than expecting

    Try to find somebody on yt who has a yt channel about minecraft and a lot of subscribers.Start a jv with him so he will push the users to your server.Without heavy promotion and an empty server you wont make anything and to get the server full is the difficult part even if its for free
