Easy Ways to Make Money in GTA Online Solo

Welcome to another Solo Friday post! Last week, we looked at ways to make money in GTA Online with a partner. This week, we will discuss ways to make money in GTA Online solo. In this series, we will discuss how to make easy money in GTA Online without any partners. 

The Basics Of Making Money In GTA Online

Before we begin, let’s establish some ground rules for this series:

  • We want your suggestions on how to make money in GTA Online. 
  • We want your suggestions on how to improve the guide and make it more helpful to you.
  • We want you to read the entirety of the How to Make Money in GTA Online guide before suggesting changes.
  • And last but not least, we want you to have fun!

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s begin.

The first thing you need to do to make money in GTA Online is to establish your base of operations. For the purposes of this discussion, let’s say that you are in the lobby of the Luxury Plaza Hotel.

You need to decide what you will offer tourists and what you will offer locals. You can start by offering luxurious tours where people can come and see the sights that the city has to offer. People who come on tours will be thankful that you provided them with such a unique experience. You can also use the occasion to talk about the history of the area or the founding of the city, if you so choose.

Another option is to rent luxury apartments for tourists who want to explore the city while having the comfort of a home away from home. You can talk to the hotel management about putting together a special package that would include some upscale amenities and maybe even a bottle of champagne to welcome the guests who are staying in your rental.

You can do the same thing for the locals by providing them with luxurious amenities that they can’t get at home. Maybe you get the chef out to prepare dinner for the guests if they are staying overnight. Or, you can offer them a tour of the city with a professional guide who knows the area and can answer all of their questions. (1)

By providing unique experiences for both the tourists and the locals, you will begin to see a profit in your hotel. Additionally, having someone prepare dinner for you when you arrive at the hotel is a nice touch. However, this also opens you up to additional charges from the lodging establishment. Be sure to check with the hotel management to see what they think about this option.

Once you have your base of operations, you will need to decide how you will make money. There are several options here as well. You can become a tour guide, sell tickets for various events that the city has to offer, become a crime fighter for the police department, or set up a booth at the local farmer’s market and get people to come and buy your wares.

How To Make Money In GTA Online In A Few Easy Steps

Now that you have a general idea of how to make money in GTA Online, let’s take a look at how you can put this knowledge into practice. (1)

The best thing about this series of articles is that they are designed to be used in conjunction with one another. Therefore, you can read the first article and come back a week later and read the second article. Or, you can jump around and read whichever one you feel that you need at the time.

Here’s a quick run-through of how to make easy money in GTA Online:

  • Find a way to attract tourists to your city. (3)
  • Once you have tourists, you can monetize their visit by taking them on tours around your beautiful city or showing them the sights that the city has to offer. (4)
  • You can also charge people for entrance into various places or events that your city offers. (5)
  • Additionally, you can sell tickets for various fun activities that your city has to offer. (6)

As you can see, there are several ways to make money in GTA Online. And because these are all ways of making money offline (i.e. outside of the game), you will not be penalized by the game for doing this. However, remember that the more you do outside of the game, the more you will be penalized inside the game. (1)

This can be tricky to set up and maintain. You will need to constantly be thinking about how you are going to attract more tourists to your city. Additionally, you will need to look for ways to make money from existing tourists once you have them in your fair city.
