    I used to work for a very popular and successful video game website, a journalism/press/review/article website. I am willing to bet a majority of you that are gamers have been on the website. Anyway, I was the PR manager for our website, both for US and UK inquiries.

    In working with this website I have a database of PR contact information for nearly every game company that exist; both US and UK contacts.

    How could this be useful to someone? Most of these contacts are private, so simply having their emails and contacting them for review/preview copies of video games (sometimes even those not released yet) will warrant them to send you out a copy. Even if you need a 'website', just throw up a quick one with a professional theme (blog) and you're set.

    You can use these contacts either to get free games, or, if you are running some sort of video game press website, use these contacts to help further your website (if you need to know exactly how, this probably isn't the industry for you.)

    My question is, how can I monetize this database of contacts that I have?

    Thanks!

    I think you have an idea of what you need to do.

    I would create a game review website and get some advertisements and offers on that website.

    It would take time but it's going to be worth it.
