    Today im going to show you a way to make money off youtube that involves video games. How much money you make is going to be based on how dedicated you are to the method. The money won't come quick but in the end you will have a strong army of soldiers bringing you recurring income.

    This method is a good place to get started with if you are new to internet marketing, but we are still going to need a few things. First thing we are going to need is a program called camstudio. This is used for recording images on your computer that we can turn into a video file. Next thing we need is VirtualDub, you can use this program to re-size the videos you have made in camstudio. Also I recommend starting a deposit files account to host your roms the users will be downloading & a bit.ly account to keep track of your visitors. Other then that the only things you are going to need is a microphone (optional) an emulator & the ability to make/aquire youtube accounts.

    Ok now lets pick a game we want to work on, we will use sonic as an example. Download the game. Now sign into your deposit files account & upload the game we just downloaded. We are going to need this link in the future so it would be a good idea to make an excel file keeping track of these things. The next step on the list is to make a gateway page for your rom. I would go into more details about this but the CPA Company I use is banned here so I will assume you know how to make a gateway page. Ok so take the url from your gateway page login to your bit.ly account & shorten your link. Again this is another link I like to save in my excel sheet.

    Ok we now have our page monetized & ready to bring us bank but there is one problem we need traffic! This is where playing video games comes in handy. Ok lets load up sonic in our emulator along with cam studio & when your ready to play hit the record button. Provide some commentary to your video if you want viewers always love this. Then towards the end of the stage thank the user for watching the video & tell them as a free bonus you have the game available to download in your signature.

    Now save your video in camstudio & compress it with VirtualDub. Compressing your videos here will save you time when you are ready to upload your videos to youtube in the next step.

    Upload the video to youtube. Title it as a walkthrough for the game then in the description throw in your bit.ly link. Add a few tags this is how people find your videos. Lets say one of your tags was sonic. When people search for the word sonic on youtube your video will be included into the search results but if they search for something like mario your video is not going to be in the results. The more tags you have the better but make sure they are semi related to the game atleast.

    Thats the idea. Now obviously just one game isn't going to make you a whole lot of dough. But if you keep pushing these out the money will start pouring in. I cant stress enough to make a spreedsheet. Start the first column with the name of the game type out a bunch of games you want to work on (atleast 100) then make the other columns the steps you need to finish. So instead of me doing one game at a time & having to log-in to these account multiple times I can skip that & just focus on the steps I got listed. Example step 1 downloading games I can focus my time solely on that until I have everything done then move on to the next column uploading. instead of downloading the game then logging in to deposit files uploading it etc etc. Focus on one step at a time you will get more done just make sure you keep track of things. This will help tons tons tons.

    Obviously there are other ways to make this process go quicker such as scraping other peoples videos & outsourcing the commentary/removing it. I just wanted to throw this idea out to the community. What do you guys think?

    I'm making some decent $$ with YT already and think I'll give this a go. People always search foe walkthroughs especially if they're stuck on a level in a popular game.

    Thanks given...

    Besides walkthroughs you could go the alternative route by showing off game cheats people are always intrested in these, you could throw a second download for the games cheats, or maybe even a guide you scraped online. Glad to see soime of you might try this method let me know how it goes. Remember its going to be slow at first don't give up in time it will pay off.

    this is an interesting idea. i am not familiar with the gaming niche. can you please explain to me about:
    1. rom (what is this?) read-only memory?
    2. where do i download the games? do i just download trial versions?
    3. can i use a gateway direct to the deposit files url thru bit.ly?
    4. what is the emulator used for? is this a program?
    5. why do i need multiple yt accounts? will yt ban my account for this method because i am promoting pirated copies of games?

    1. A rom is basically a video game in a file. The emulator is a computer program that acts like a gaming system. You open up the emulator. then you load your rom from there. Just google "sega roms" or "sega emulator" etc.

    2. Use google like I said above to find the games if you still fail vimm.net has some games you can download.

    3. No you need a website to host a gateway its an HTML code you put on your page. A gateway is basically a page ontop of your page that requires the user to fill out a CPA offer in order to download the game. Once the user fills out the CPA Offer the gateway will direct them to your depositfiles page where they can download the game.

    4. If I wanted to play super nintendo games I would search for a super nintendo emulator. Its a virtual gaming system. Then the games for the virtual system are called roms, they can be found all over the place.

    5. I would suggest having multiple accounts just incase an account gets deleted, you will still have your other accounts and not lose all of your data. Also proxies would be great to use with your accounts.

    hehehe your poor soul, so confused


    an emulator is a program you download to emulate a game system like, nintendo, super nintendo etc.

    a rom is like a ripped version of the game

    you combine the rom and the emulator and you can play the game on your computer instead of your super nintendo

    the rest of the stuff u axed about is part of your due diligence as an IMer

    thanks very much for your explanation. now it is coming together. i am planning to do this with the help of my son who is so addicted to gaming. probably convert his addiction to something profitable rather than having him play all day.

    So how do you think ROMs would fare as far as copyrights go, since I know the network you use as well as many other incentive networks are cracking down on copyrighted stuff.

    I've done something like this in the past and I had some income from it :). Just twist and it will definitely work. I would use emulator games ;).

    Try contacting your Affilate manager at the helpdesk MoneyMakerMatt about what you are trying to do. Be honest will them & they will help you out to the best of their ability. They are on your side & want you to make as much money as possible for the company.

    this method will work with many different files (game cheats, keygens, patches etc. - they don't even have to be real, but it will give you bigger traffic if they will be real). Also you can use sharecash if you don't want to pay for hosting.

    Never thought of this twist. Thanks for the share I might be trying this out. Maybe if it rakes in some cash selling the site on flippa ;)

    Thanks for the compliment, on a side note I take back what I said about depositfiles, change that to sharecash. The reason I say this is because depositfiles will delete any file which has not been downloaded after 30 days. Ontop of this sharecash will generate you more income but frustrate/confuse visitors because they will have to fill out a second survey.
