For those who are fascinated by ghosts, spirits, demons and aliens, square off against the supernatural as part of their day-to-day life is a fascinating concept. While some people do make a full-time living as paranormal investigators, it is not an easy job and one that is rarely lucrative at all. It is more often than not a hobby that people do for fun or to satisfy their passions and interests.
Those who do pursue a career as paranormal investigators typically do so because of some sort of personal experience or interest. They may have had a personal encounter with the unknown or watched videos on YouTube that convinced them to pursue the field. It is also not uncommon for them to have a career in some other industry like marketing, advertising or filmmaking and choose to supplement their income by doing paranormal investigations as a sideline.
While there are many ways to earn money as a ghost hunter, most do not generate much in the way of revenue from fees charged on an individual basis to clients. Instead, they usually make a large portion of their income through speaking engagements, giving tours of local haunted sites and generating interest in their brand by creating YouTube channels and podcasts to promote themselves and their paranormal investigations.
Those who are interested in becoming paranormal investigators should be prepared to invest a lot of time and effort into this line of work. They should be ready to put in long hours on a regular basis and be prepared for the emotional toll that comes with this field.
