The year is 2016 and the world is at peace. For the first time in forever, there aren’t any international borders, political tensions or mass media bias. However, this doesn’t mean that working for a company, or even creating one, isn’t full of challenges. The real world is still a very different place from the one portrayed in Grand Theft Auto V, with its bright graphics, shiny objects and larger-than-life characters. In this blog post, we will discuss how to make money as a GTA V online president – both while playing the game and outside of it.
The Many Ways To Earn Money In GTA V
If you’re looking to make some quick cash in GTA V, you’ve come to the right place. The world’s most popular video game may not be as friendly to players as it seems, with hidden tasks, side-quests and money-making opportunities galore.
If you play your cards right, you can make a good chunk of change even when you’re playing against the computer. But in order to do so, you need to master the game’s many systems and know how to properly utilize every feature.
Here’s a short list of the ways you can earn some extra cash in the GTA V world:
1. Take On Jobs In Small-Scale Operations
One of the first jobs you’ll encounter as a rookie in GTA V is as a courier. You’ll simply have to pick up packages for people, transport them to other locations and, occasionally, drop them off at specified destinations. This can be a quick way to make money and it’s a task that’s pretty easy to grasp once you’ve played the game for a while. You’ll just have to make sure that you don’t take on too many delivery jobs at once, otherwise, you’ll struggle to keep all of them satisfied. But if you do end up getting a bit overzealous and take too much on at once, you’re in for a rude awakening. It’s then that you’ll realize that this is no ordinary job and you shouldn’t be expected to pull off these kind of deliveries all by yourself. You’ll need help from other players – or at least, you’ll need the assistance of a mannequin.
Another way to make quick money in GTA V is to take up arms for hire. This is also one of the more traditional ways of making money in the game, with you joining one of the many war-ring factions as a hired gun. For the most part, you’ll be doing combat missions for whoever offers you the most money, but a select few will require you to escort vital supplies or even people to safety. And although this might not seem like a lucrative venture, you need to keep in mind that you’re also on the lookout for the law and, occasionally, rival gangs. The last thing you want to do is upset the people you’re working for or end up having a violent confrontation with another gang. This will unquestionably put a dent in your wallet – but it’s better than getting caught by the police.
2. Start An Internet Café
An easy way to make money in the GTA V world is to start an internet café. You’ll need a decent-sized room with a few computers and internet connections, and you’ll need to make sure that all of your customers are having a good time. You can’t just sell them Internet access though, you also need to offer them games and other useful utilities. Once you get the hang of it, setting up an internet café in GTA V is a fairly straightforward process. And although it can be quite the endeavor to take on, it’s a lucrative one.
3. Start An eBay Business
A lot of people are attracted to the idea of making quick cash on the side by selling and buying items on eBay. There are several business opportunities available for gamers on the popular auction site and some can be extremely profitable. If you want to start your own eBay store, you’ll need to register a business account and then set up a small reserve of items to start with. From there, you can develop your own strategies for selling your wares. You can use tools like eBay profit center to track your sales and manage your listings effectively.
4. Start An Air Travel Agency
Air travel agencies can be a very lucrative way to make money in GTA V. Just get a uniform and start calling yourself an air transport agency. You’ll need to register with the FAA (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale – The International Astronautical Federation) and begin taking on deals to transport people and cargo around the world. Although this might sound like an unorthodox way to make money, it’s one of the most reliable ways of generating a healthy income in the game.
You can find out more information on the kind of regulations that apply to air transport agencies at the FAA website – or you can contact them directly via email at email@example.com.
5. Start A Photography Business
A lot of people enjoy taking photos and many of them are on the lookout for talented amateurs who can capture the essence of their travels, big events or even just everyday life. If you’ve got a good eye for photography and the right equipment (lighting, lenses, etc.), you can become a professional photographer and start making money right away. You can use your camera to take photos of anything and everything in the GTA V world – from landscapes to famous faces trying to keep a low profile, even for a second – and you can market these photos to various businesses and individuals for massive profits.
To get started, you’ll need to register a business (EIN) with the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) and then track down clients and begin billing them. You can use platforms like QuickBooks to help you keep track of your expenses and generate bills for your clients. Once you’ve got the hang of things, you can move on to bigger and better things – like drones and satellite imagery for example.
6. Rent Out Your Game Room
If you’ve got a spare room in your house, you can rent it out as a game room to gamers in need of a room to play their consoles. You can do this either completely online, using platforms like Airbnb or Game Room Rental, or you can get out there and meet potential customers in person. Either way, you’ll need to make sure that the room is well-stocked with the latest hardware (Xbox, PlayStation, etc.) and that it’s in a perfect condition to ensure a pleasant gaming experience for your guests. You should also set up some snacks and drinks (soft drinks are free, but juice and milk are not) to make sure that your guests feel welcome.
The takeaway from all of this is that there are several ways to make money in the GTA V world, provided you know where to look. As before, the real world is still a very different place from the one portrayed in the game and while we might not always have international borders, organized crime and terrorism are still very much a reality. Just because the world is at peace doesn’t mean that business as usual has ceased – and you never know when an opportunity for profit might present itself.
