Creating sellable content around Video Games.

4 replies
I am looking at creating a guide for a computer game.

There is already a large volume of searches for the relevant keywords with Low/Medium competition so I want to get the product completed quickly.

I am thinking of first writing an e-book and seeing how that sells, hopefully making my money back and earning some extra cash to invest into a video and podcast series. Eventually my site would become the goto for any advice or information surrounding this particular game.

Does anybody have any experience in this field? Is it hard to monetize content around games? Does the approach above sound like a good path to go down?

Thanks,
Adam.

    ebooks are giveaways to build trust. copyblogger has some great ebooks that help you understand how to build that trust and ways to engage your niche audience. There are tons more, you just have to opt in to get them and then read them! Always do your IPA first though or you will chase yourself all over the web and have nothing accomplsihed at the end of the day. Remember to give value - more than the buck you expect back - first. People buy from people not a product. I can go to the store for that. Internet sales comes from copy, pictures and a personality behind it all. 80% value, 20% pitch. Ebooks are the free desserts in my mind. Probably more than you wanted to hear, but ah well, just a grandma speaking from her heart!

    That is a good strategy if you have a great product, just see what others do at Clickbank.
    Don't use the name of the game on your domain.

    From my experience with friends, they do make money with the video game niche, but not with products. They make it via ads on their site or ad revenue on Youtube.

    Because there are TONS of searches around certain video game terms/games, this can actually work.

    I'm sure there are ways to make money with products here, but I've just not seen it done successfully.
