If you have a passion for gaming and want to help other people enjoy the games they play, then you should definitely start an online business related to gaming.
I teach people to build websites about their own personal interests, and one of the topics I get asked about most often is video games. “Video Games” of course, covers a huge range of topics, but that’s the beauty of starting an online business in the video game industry – there’s something for everyone.
Getting noticed and gaining an audience online isn’t easy – it can be quite competitive. However, there is a massive amount of growing global interest in the topic of gaming and its sub-genres, and with the right tools, competition isn't something you have to worry about too much.
For example, if you try to make a general “I love gaming” website, there’s a really good chance that you’ll fail just because it’s much too big of a project to take on. However, if you target only competitive gamers playing Dota 2, now you have a much more specific audience. This can help you create content that is interesting and entertaining for your audience, and you don't have to do any Super Mario Maker videos, lol!
There are hundreds of possible niches within the gaming industry that you could potentially choose to start your gaming website about.
- gaming hardware for PCs
- gaming laptops
- virtual reality
- competitive gaming
- strategy game reviews
- horror game reviews
- family friendly games
- games for kids under age 3/5/10
- Dota 2
- mobile gaming
- indie games
- retro gaming
- retro console restoration
- arcade cabinets
- game design
- gaming secrets
I did some research into some of these niches for writing this article, and found some really interesting trends that should get you excited about starting a website on these topics.
The gaming world is immensely diverse. People from different countries, with different cultural backgrounds, of all different ages, all playing for different reasons…these are all real people you could potentially reach out to online.
And starting a gaming website to make money doesn’t have to be just about “turning a profit” (although that is a possible goal if you want to do this full time). Any successful business starts with a core concept of helping people.
If you have a passion for gaming and want to help other people enjoy the games they play, then this is the business you need to be in. Starting your website NOW means you could be gaming online from home full time in a year or two.

Building your basic website is very easy! Adding graphics and learning the interface will have a slight learning curve but all of the lessons come with video training so you can follow along withe the instructor.
Can I change my topic later?
You can build up to 25 websites with your membership, so you can have 25 different topics if you want! However, if you pick a new topic, you will need to purchase a new domain ($11). You should not have more than one topic for a website because it will confuse your visitors.
How much does is cost to run a business?
The one basic thing you need to run your internet based business is a domain name. This costs $11 per year to register. There are many extra things that are optional, but none are required. How much you invest in your business is up to you.
