    Hey guys, I would like to hear you opinion about affiliate networks.

    Do you cooperate with any of them? In the last couple months, I saw that a lot of people cooperate with them and also I saw a few stands on affiliate conference.

    So I figured out that there is some advantage to working with them, but I don't know what advantage.

    Depends on the networks .. I prefer to make my own deals with programs but if you do not have a lot of expertise dealing with the AM it could be beneficial for you to work with them.
    If you do not have time chasing up money etc it is good to have someone chase after the company for you..

    The difficult part for me is the fact that you would sign up with many programs... and then you would be governed by T&C's that you probably haven't read. So - if the 'network' signs you up for 888 and if you send less than 5 players in a month - all of the sudden you are getting 10% revshare. Or other programs - maybe terminated. It seems to me that it could be a crapshoot. But - I haven't worked with one. I've only had requests to certify them. My response has always been that we certify the T&C's - so it is impossible to certify a network that has many, many T&C's outside of their own T&C's.

    I never work with them, make your own deals instead. If you got any kind of traffic most programs will abide by your terms to get listed.

    I concur, learn how to negotiate yourself so that other people aren't making money off your hard work for doing nothing

    Better not start working with someone who has unclear rules, later we can only observe how we are being robbed and get from 10% to 30% less, or nothing! because we are inefficient in their opinion

    Hey, guys thank you for your opinions I really appreciate that. You are right, it's better to make my own deals. Speak with affiliate managers etc...

    Thank you ;)

    I prefer to make my own deals with programs as well. Gambling niche is a little bit different than other niches, because there are many revenue share deals instead of CPA, which are ordinary in affiliate networks businesses. Many affiliate network platforms are prepared strictly for these CPA deals, not revenue share ones..

    Why do you need a network?

    Surely Affiliate Networks exist to help small companies promote themselves online... we're online anyway and all operators (worth dealing with) have there own affiliate program. Why give some of you're own commission to someone else?

    If you're new to the game then go to a trade show and learn the ropes don't sign up to an affiliate network.

    Good day.

    Good affiliate network is much easier to work with by some reasons:

    1) if you have traffic from diff geos - it is comfotable to sign once ad have all stat in 1 place
    2) payout - with aff network (reliable and log lived) you will get paid wihtout doubt + with stable % (even the traffic will stop)
    3) support - landings, sites, banners on sweden or finnish and etc

    If you know how to get traffic it is always a headake to solve administrative problems or thouthands of support chat to get smth done.

    + having big stat the guys from aff network can suggest you the best converting casino for exactely your traffic )

    )

    but if your traffic stricky target in 1 geo + you work with 1 casino - aff network is no-nead
