Sponsors could contribute to a large portion of your income. In other words, promote brands products while playing in tournaments and shocasing your skills.
  • Team sponsorship: Professional esport team owners or franchise organizations are backed by sponsors or independent investors and behave in a similar way to traditional sports teams. They buy and sell players to compete in the best tournaments and leagues. They also invest in building audiences on Twitch and YouTube. Considering the size of the esports industry, it’s not surprising that these organizations are paying pro gamers on average $60k per year, and this accounts for only a part of their income. PLayers can also benefits from sponsorship bonuses and royalties.

    1. Hi MrBiizzy,

      Thanks for leaving a comment. Indeed, there are various reasons why people are choosing fortnite as a way to make money playing games.

  4. My son plays Fornite often; he has not said anything about making money on this game. Although he has been talking about starting a YouTube channel for video games, maybe this has inspired him to do. I wish I were into gaming now as much as I was when I was younger. 

    Fortnite seems to have made quite an impact on many young kids; I know my nephew loves; maybe he can do something to earn some money for himself. Another thing I was wondering about is, do you think Fornite is here for longterm or is just a fad game?

    1. Hi Eric,

      Thank you for reading this post. Even though fortnite’s revenues has dropped a little last year, It is still one of the most prolific and popular game in the gaming industry with its 250 million users. So yes, I believe fortnite is there to stay for long term.

  5. one of the best things about games like this, is that there are a massive number of people playing them. There are a lot of people that are very enthusiastic about these types of things, so when you create a YouTube channel in which you help people with their questions, and even show them your video footage of you playing. Or live streaming, you can generate substantial traffic this way.

    1. That is exactly right Jake. Fortnite is counting a huge 250 million users as of now. Pretty impressive and no need to say that this is a big bassin of potential clients or fans in need of help!

  6. I always knew that you could make money streaming fortnite and even as an esports player and coach but I did not know that people boosted people’s accounts for money. I will have to look into that for other games as that can be a real enjoyable way to make some extra money.
