If you want to make money with HTML5 games, actually making HTML5 games is not the only available option. You can create your own games portal and earn with in-site ads just like most websites do.
During the life of this blog I published some interesting success stories:
When it comes to run a game portal, the first question is “how should I design it?” followed by “where can I find the games?”.
While there are some WordPress solutions which provided a game portal theme ready to run, some people do not like WordPress because they don’t want to deal with themes and plugins, and prefer a “plug and play” solution with a simpler learning curve.
This is when Best Arcade Script comes into play.
Designed with ease of use in mind, while being full of options like most WordPress solutions, it only requires a server running PHP and a MySql database.
Everything is simple and fast when you configure Best Arcade Script, you don’t even have a real user management as you only have to protect your admin area with .htpasswd – if you don’t know what I am talking about, here’s a useful link.
During my test, I was able to import all GamePix games with a simple click. Everything is also ready to be monetized thanks to built-in ads space.
