Hi Zorin,

Most of gamers revenue come through sites where they create content just as Youtube or Twitch. The first thing you want to do is find a game or games which are popular and will generate a lot of searches. The next thing you want to do is be really good at not only the game you play, but how you edit, market and share the content. It's important to find your Niche and what will set you apart from other streamers. Overall, it takes a lot of different skills to be a successful gamer, but it's a fun an exciting career if you can make it work.

Best of luck to you!
Thanks,
Dan

To make money as a gamer online, it's important to have a presence on many different platforms. Definitely stream on both Twitch and Youtube for starters. I've seen streamers make great money getting paid for subs on their live stream who make money off of the stream a second time by grabbing great clips and uploading them to Youtube for ad revenue. Patreon is also a great way to make the money from Youtube more predictable and less vulnerable to the risks that inherent to being a YouTuber. I'd recommend making a discord and developing a community as well as these are great ways to expand the size and enthusiasm of your community. Engage them in the comments section of videos and make emojis on Twitch of exciting moments that happen on stream if everyone is talking about those moments. Having a presence on Twitch, Facebook, Reddit, or Discord can be very helpful as well.

Savannah’s Answer

Hi! You can be a gamer by alot of things,
for example, if you have an E-sports at your school you can join that and go to tournament, or you can make a youtube and just play and give tips while you play, or you can do what most do and just play alot and know alot about the games you pay and do research and watch youtube videos on other people playing so you can master the game.
If you have fellow friends who are gamers you can play with them to get better if not make some friends who have that same interest as you and you be sure to become a gamer if you want to. Hope this helps!

If you're looking to be a professional gamer it helps to pick one game and study every aspect of it. A lot of time needs to be spent studying logs or watching perspective replays of higher skilled players. It's not enough to just watch YouTube or Twitch streams. You need to analyze what they're doing, why their doing it at the moment, and then either be able to emulate on it or improve on it. Players in the professional scene often find themselves in the game 12+ hours a day practicing and studying.

As an example, if you're in to Dota or League of Legends you should start with narrowing your hero pool for to 5 for a specific role and try to understand what makes them work well. Watch replays of how current pros are playing those heroes and see how they react to all phases of the game. Are they able to be more aggressive vs. certain heroes or do they need to play more passive early game. Often time there will be cookie cutter leveling/item builds for those heroes. Start with those then as you get better start to analyze what items work best with your team's comp as well as what comp your up against. Certain builds will be in favor if you have an early lead vs. having to play from behind.

There's really a ton of angle to approach this from, but in essence they all boil down to treating this as a job rather than a hobby. If you can sit down and stay focused on learning how to play a game you'll already be way ahead of your peers. It's the reason a lot of pros are able to go from one game to the next and maintain a high skill level when doing so. They understand how to study and can be successful at anything they put their mind to.

If you want a long career in the industry, not only do you need to be one of the best in the world, but you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle outside of the game to combat the sedentary nature of gaming. The reason a lot of gamers top out in their teens and early twenties is because they don't take care of themselves outside the game and end up with hand, knee, and/or back pain making the 12 hour days unbearable and their reaction times slower.
