    Hello BHW

    So just the other day I came to a great conclusion.

    Gaming is fun and it would be awesome to base your IM business around that.


    Doing what you like for money is one of the things that many people want to do in their life. Furthermore, it's even better to do it in multiplayer. Not to mention that it's better to do this with more people then trying to do everything on your own.

    The basic idea is the following:

    We create a youtube channel and a blog based on playing different games in multiplayer while on voice and record that.
    These videos on youtube are the main source of content. Also, we would include news articles, giveaways on the blog and casting / walkthroughs / reviews / compilations / whatever on youtube.
    Everything leads to the blog where we monetize all that traffic.

    For the featured games, think Steam games like Planetside 2, Team Fortress 2, Chivalry, Airmech, etc. Games like this don't have that much competion so we would rank stuff easier. Actually anything is fine with me as long as it's not DotA and it's lame copies LOL / HON. I've played too much DotA in my life. :rolleyes:

    This idea would include around 4 people, me included. Each one of us would have a task alongside playing multiplayer.

    They would be:

    1. Caster (Think "HuskyStarcraft", it can be any game that's worth casting as long as it has enough players and not many casters)
    2. Writer (All blog content -> gaming news)
    3. Recording / Video Editing
    4. Myself (Promotion & Marketing)

    I'm not looking for anyone with any extensive IM knowledge but rather just people that like to play different games and plan to take this seriously. Ofc, you'd need to speak and understand english rather well. Also I'd prefer if you where in the 18-25 years range since I'd like to work with people from a generation close to mine (I'm 20).

    If you're interested, please send me a PM and we will talk on skype. :cool:

    Cheers

    Forgot to mention that it would be better if you're GMT +1 / Europe based since it's easier to coordinate things that way (and less lag for someone if we all play on the same server)

    People who contacted me, sry, there's loads of stuff happening today, I'll add you later on tonight.

    So a "let's play" like millions of videos already on Youtube?

    There's also million people in the "make money online" niche but that doesn't stop new people from getting in to it. Also, how many of those actually monetize their traffic? Plus this is more about having fun and making money in the process, not the other way around.
