Casino Affiliate Promotion VS The Economy
Well, we are well into the economic issues so it's about time we all take a look at our stats and determine... Is the state of the economy affecting my income as a Casino Affiliate?
We all have heard over and over that disposable income is down... way down they say on CNN and most media outlets. I find it very strange that when I purchased a new laptop for the business about 1 month ago - that I had to wait almost 45 minutes while the folks at Best Buy scrambled to keep up with the traffic in the store. It was unbelievable. I asked the guy who helped me about it and he said 'People are buying like crazy, I don't know what they are talking about'. I even had to purchase the laptop online and drive to another location because they were out of stock everywhere in the state (except 1 location).
So - if that's the case... Then how is gaming doing? Could they be doing as well as Best Buy?
Well, for me (personally):
January 2009 was better than January 2008
February 2009 is already better than February 2008
This year is definitely topping last years numbers already.. That is a good sign and I have seen this trend over the last 3-4 months. Now - maybe that means I finally know what I am doing? Or maybe the economy is just not hurting those with the most disposable income... and I am lucky enough to find those players.
