How to make money off Minecraft! -EULA Friendly-
Level 45 : Master Mountaineer
Minecraft is a great platform for making money. There are many options for making money and anyone with decent enough experience on Minecraft can make money to. But, as with real life, money isn't that easy to come around.
Here are my ways to make money off Minecraft. Some might not be included.
- Adlinks: Adlinks are, in my opinion the easiest way to make money, but only small money. After you gain level 20 on PMC you may use a adlink service and have ads feature on your links, gaining you small money. [Approx. $0.00030 a click] Many people do not like ad links as it is a very spammy way of business.
- Donations: Donations are a highly debated topic, while a donation should be to keep a server up or help an author [Mod Author] to keep living, many people use donations to make money.
- Youtube: By monethising your videos -placing ads on them- you can make small money. I do not know exact figures but I have heard for every 100 views $0.013. This is run by google's adsense which is partnered with Youtube.
You can also get sponsored to make videos or paid by people to advertise their maps/servers on your channel.
- Twitch: Twitch allows you to become a partner if you have over 500 views on your streams constantly. This generates small money for streamers.
- Commissions: There are many build teams out there offering to build anything if you have the money for it. From spawns to RPG maps, if you have the money and can think of something [That is massive] then you could probably get a build team to build it.
- Plugins: There are many people out there offering to make custom-coded plugins for a price. From simple economy plugins to massive rpg plugins.
How to make money off PMC:
The easiest way to make money of PMC is to post projects, mods or texture packs where as people click the download link you gain money. This being said you need at least 1,000+ downloads on mod, project or texture pack to get any decent money.
What are the adlink services:
The main adlink service that is most used with mods, texture packs and projects is adfly. It is user friendly and through it's popularity is well known and trust worthy. There are other adlink services but adfly is the most trusted and most widely used one.
How to make money off Twitch:
Making money of Twitch is very similar to making money off of Youtube, it uses the same concept with placing ads on your streams but you need an average of 500 viewers on your streams while for youtube you could only have 20 views and still monethise.
As far as I am aware you may not sell an item on PMC. Normally someone requests a map, or build and a build team leader contacts them or an individual contacts them and they discuss prices and the build/map on skype or other chat system. It is not allowed to post a shop on PMC that you have to pay for the work made.
Making money off of Minecraft isn't as easy as I have wrote here, it takes a lot of dedication, headaches and smart planning to make any amount of money, or in some cases, sheer good luck.
