    If you are a NEW affiliate or someone who has 'lost their way'... then the AGD Mentor Program may help you on your way to more traffic and better search engine presence.

    Our Partnership:

    We are partnering with a group who are very good at helping affiliates get started. Gaffg.com have helped quite a few affiliates more quickly learn about becoming an affiliate and making money. They give 1-on-1 advice to ensure that you make fewer mistakes along the way. They have a team of high-quality experts in the areas of Affiliate Marketing (specifically iGaming), SEO, and website development. More information on this group can be found here:

    Affiliate Coaching

    **NOTE: AGD will help you use our system to benefit your website. This will be in the form of AGD Member Websites and how to use it wisely among other possibilities.



    What we expect in return at AGD:

    We expect very little.. However, an occasional (or more often) post regarding your website and your progress would be beneficial to everyone here at AGD. When you start the mentoring program, please do the following:

    ** Create a post with a title similar to: {YourName or Website} - AGD Mentorship
    * Post some information about your progress in the program
    * Post questions you may have to other AGD Members

    Your 1-on-1 team will answer most of your questions. But if there is something you want to ask - we are all here for you! It might be worthwhile to find out what AGD Members as a whole think about something as well :)



    How do you get started?

    Create a post as mentioned above**. Additionally, you could contact the guys at Gaffg - Affiliate Coaching. Both methods will get the process started.

    Sounds really good :) You've laid out the expectations of AGD and these are fair. Though with Gaff, What's the catch? No offense but there's no such thing as a free lunch.

    They can speak to this more than I can :) I believe they are doing it similar to the way I used to run the Mentor Program here at AGD - They ask you to become a sub-affiliate for specific programs so that they can make a return on their investment. It works for both sides because the Mentor has to get you rocking and rolling or they have little benefit.

    Again - they can speak more to this, but that is my understanding.

    You know... your right there is no such thing as a free lunch. Here's why I back Gaffg and why I put their seal on casinomobilebonus.co.uk.

    We can all relate to when we started a new project, how difficult it is to get it off the ground. Only a tiny fraction of ideas take off by themselves, and believe me, most of those are played out in this industry from many angles.

    When I first stared I realized that I needed help, and people here and on other forums came to the rescue, some are gone and some are still here. My point is this...

    Gaffg un-selfishly and without any ask of a link or shoutout, wanted to review my sites, with the rule I am providing an option for players to get help with addiction. This is a core value to me, but I know whats going on here.

    Of course they want that seal there, a nice juicy link on my site, but did they ask for it first... no.

    They revised all of my sites. They took the time to write about them in detail. It was evident that the author visited the majority of the deep pages of them as the analysis, although somewhat brief, would be best described as concise and accurate.

    Only then, after a good amount of work (Investment*) they are rewarded with what they wanted, and I am left impressed at the professionalism over there for a new venture.

    If anyone wants a quick analysis we usually do this for free but we try to make an article out of it whether on Gaffg or in some cases the iGB Affiliate Magazine. With the AGD Mentor Program affiliates can ask as many questions as they want on the forums and we can comment along with more of the experienced affiliates on the forum. If anyone wants to return the thanks in anyway we wouldn't say no to any links or sub affiliate signups.

    If anyone wants detailed coaching then we do ask for some sub affiliate signups to give us an incentive to help the affiliate. Sub affiliate signups don't come out of your commission and everyone benefits. If you signup direct with an affiliate program, well they save money.

    2 affiliates we have worked with in the past few years include e-sportbets.org and thepogg.com

    I've seen your website Matt and it looks great. So I don't think I would agree with the term failing :)

    Yes seems like a great deal. I've been talking with John and already I'm starting to get a better idea of the steps I should take to improve my website.

    It doesn't have to be new affiliates only, our best coaching work and results to date have been with sites that were established but needed some guidance on generating more traffic, SEO and improving conversion to start earning commissions.

    Just contact for details and see what can be arranged whether you need a lot of help or maybe just a shorter session to point you in the right direction.

    Long time lurker. First time poster.

    Is this thread still alive? No update since Dec 2013.

    I'm interested in this program if it is still available.

    I'll ask here then.
    Glad that the program is still running.
    Very simple question, how can I join the program.
    What is the basic requirement for me to be accepted into the mentoring program.
    We can continue our conversation in PM or email if you want to know more about me.

    @gamingaffiliatesguide was helping with this as AGD's internal program was shut down quite a while ago. I haven't talked to John on this in a while, but feel free to PM him.

    I can, but typically do not for a new member without much history. So - please watch yourself. If anyone complains - then I will have to disable for much longer.
