Do you think you can’t make money playing your favorite video game? Have you ever been told that all those hours spent on Minecraft were a waste of time? Well think again, now you too could be making money from home. But how do I hear you ask, how is it possible to make money from minecraft? Well, read on because you’re about to discover seven easy ways to make money on Fiverr.com (and impress your friends at the same time).
First, let’s take a moment to review the website, Fiverr.com. Fiverr.com is an online marketplace where people tackle any number of odd jobs or “micro-jobs” in exchange for paying a whopping $5. Users can offer to put 100 flyers on 100 cars, design a company logo or record a personalized message while imitating the voice of a “Star Wars” character. The scope and variety of jobs available will impress anyone unfamiliar with the site, and on your first visit, you’ll understandably wonder how the heck you can get all this “stuff” for just five bucks.
While some gigs have an opening fee of $5, the most popular and highly rated ones earn much more per gig. For example, if you need a project completed in 24 hours add $10, if you want more detail on an illustration add $15, hand out another 200 flyers add $20 and so on. Now a gig that was originally priced at five dollars can earn the seller much, much more.
Like all websites, Fiverr.com has some terms and conditions that must be followed to protect both the buyer and the seller. At the moment, the site is available to anyone over the age of 13, is not limited to any particular country, and does not allow violent, spammy, or illegal concerts. Other than that, anyone can sell their talents and services there. So what can you offer on this website? Here are eight ideas to get you started…
Are you always scribbling Minecraft scenes? Do you have a kill scene of Herobrine and Steve in combat? Well, if you have the talent, you can make money from it. A quick scroll through Fiverr.com using the search term “Minecraft” and you’ll find plenty of artists offering to draw scenes for money.
Recreate images in Minecraft
If drawing isn’t for you, you might be one of those people who likes to recreate scenes from the real world in Minecraft. Can you build the Statue of Liberty, the Grand Canyon or a 747 plane? Then you could also earn money with this talent. With this gig, customers provide a photograph of a real world scene and you recreate it in Minecraft, simple.
If you’ve seen any Minecraft videos on YouTube, you know that the best ones always have a banner, logo, or still image. They have to come from somewhere, so why not from you? If you find image editing software like “Gimp” or “Photoshop” very easy to use, you could provide an opening or closing credit banner creation service for a fee. Get it right and you could find yourself very busy, very quickly.
Do you know how to set up a Minecraft server? Could you do it all day and even while you sleep? Well, you could provide that service at a cost. Just because it’s easy for you doesn’t mean it’s easy for others. So why not get paid for your expertise? You could provide a service that helps other players set up and maintain their servers.
Are you one of those people who loves to make short films with Mine-imator? You could offer your services for a price. With this gig, you can offer to create a unique short animation for a client or (even better) sell the same video over and over again and make money from it. With this option you can offer different alternatives of the same video. In one you can change the music, in another place the domain name of your client, make it shorter or longer or many other options to make each video unique. And of course, every change comes with a price tag.
Do you find it easy to make minecraft skins? So why not make money with it? Just give a gig where your customers provide a picture, example, or idea of what they’re looking for and you create it. To see examples of this, search for Fiverr.com with the search term “Minecraft Skin.”
Do you or your mom know how to create the best Minecraft party food or birthday cake? Could you create Minecraft birthday invitations better than at your local store? Then maybe it’s time to put that knowledge to some use. You can provide this information in a document, print, or video set that you could sell again and again. Heck, with so many Minecraft parties, you could be offering your baked goods for sale to parties in your area.
As you have seen with a little imagination and creativity it is possible to earn money with Minecraft. Are these the only ways to make money, definitely not? Once you’ve spent a little time on Fiverr.com, you’ll probably come up with other ideas and services that we didn’t.
Will you be able to retire to the kind of home Notch has, probably not? All in all, it depends on how good of a service you provide, your reviews, and how many people search for what you have to offer. But do your best, don’t give up and you too could have a nice income from your love of Minecraft. Now, who said that playing video games was a waste of time?
Keep in mind – Mojang now takes its copyright infringement more seriously than ever. Just to be on the right side of your lawyers, it’s best to read their terms and conditions before creating any gigs first.
