How to Make Money in Second Life – My Secret Cash Making Tips!
Second Life is an awesome invention and millions of people around the world actively log in to live out a virtual life within, it really does mirror real life in many ways – and it’s because of this that a lot of people want to know how to make money in second life.
I did the same back in 2007 and managed to find some great ways to make some fast cash in Second Life which you can then ‘cash in’ for real money (my bank account has been a lot healthier with this second income!). Here are some of my top cash making tips for you:
1.) Virtual Real Estate
In the real world this refers to websites and such like, but within Second Life this refers to property and real estate.
You can make some serious money in Second Life with property just as you can in real life. What I did was buy land – looked out for the deals where it was cheaper than market value and then spent some Linden dollars developing on it and then selling on for profit. Rinse and repeat this process to make money.
After a while of doing this you can rack up some serious cash. I remember one Asian girl amassed a huge $250 million Linden dollars doing this over about 2 years, which when cashed in for real money netted her nearly $1 million US dollars in her bank account. So, it’s definitely worth it!
2.) Starting your own business
When it comes to knowing how to make money in second life, starting your own business is a great idea. In the real world you have lots of startup costs, taxes and other insurances to take out, but this is simplified in Second Life and so you can get up and running much more quickly.
What you need to do is do some research first. See what people are doing around you, what problems they have and are looking to solve etc. Once you find this out, starting your own business to service their needs will be much easier and you can make good money this way.
