How much money can a Flash programmer make from Flash game developing?

Flash game developer make money?
Since start blogging about making money as a Flash developer, I've been filtering the big question of most of the Flash developers out-there: How much money can a game developer make as a freelancer? How much money can a Flash developer make by developing Ad-games? Join in-game-advertising networks? Let's start…

Most of the Flash technology programmers in the world were in some point of her life in the situation where they had to decide: Should I go into casual games developing? This issue was on my mind as a Flash site developer since it’s all about finance questions – How much money will I make if I'll stop developing crappy Flash sites and start develop amazing casual games.
If you try to calculate how much will you exactly make – you're heading the wrong way.

Ask yourself first:

1. Can I run my own business?
2. Can I work from home?
3. Do I have the ability to work alone, in professionalism matters?

4. Am I ready to get into the online life of MySpace/Faceboook/NewGrounds/Xpogames etc…? (If you just said: "Huh?" them forget the rest, you're not ready!).
Check out these few facts:
1. There are special portals for game developers: Kongregate, Armor Games, Miniclip etc. Use them.
2. Mochiads (and Google with new bet testing) can supply advertisers for any Flash game. You get paid per click (for 1000 gameplayes, you'll get around $1).
3. Developing games in Flash is the easiest way (the easiest, not 'easy') to get into the game development world.

You certainly are looking at this the right way. Wish alot of other people would do the same!

However the same applies to most professions wether it be other media types e.g. web design or something like Law etc.

Hi, well like your blog is how make some money, here is the analysis of differents eCPM take a look, they all for the same game.

I make a game, (obvious :P) and i take the same game and put in differentes ads services (i want to try out in ecmp star and newgrounds but im a little lazy)
MOCHIADS Impressions: 977,845 Earnings: $52.72 eCPM = 0.04
GAMEJACKET => Total Game Impressions 778889 Total Revenue US$427.16 eCPM = 0.55
KONGREGATE => Views 4,398 earnings $3.29 eCPM = 0.76
I have to test it out with newgrounds and cpmstar but the last one dont accept me , so i have to wait to make the real research. Im impressed kongregate has the best eCPM :D
Let me know your comments... ;)
