Ways to Monetize a Game server
I was thinking about getting a battlefield 4 server for me and my game clan. It would cost me roughly about 800 for 1 year. I dont mind spending the money on the server, but I would like to get some money back if possible. I think being able to get a little money back a month would help me open some more servers as well as bring in a little extra income on this hobby.
How would you guys go about setting up this beast up for just breaking even?
I was thinking maybe it would be a good idea to join a affiliate marketing program and sell services that a FPS (first person Shooter) player would find interesting either on the website or on the message of the day on the server itself.
Or selling server slots for people who would like to reserve a spot on the server.
I have ran servers before, but never really tried to get any money for my time. I just think this is something that is not taken advantage of often by people who go in on these adventures.
