Do you make a living (part or full-time) online as a casino (gaming) affiliate In 2012 the landscape has changed a bit. There have been some huge losses in the industry which have severely limited player transactions. These changes have even restricted entire geographic regions from gambling. For many of us our incomes have dwindled, while some have found a way to capitalize in other areas to increase their take home. If you make a living or extra money by promoting casinos, sportsbooks, bingo, binary options, or any other 'gaming' property - please vote on this poll. It not only gives everyone a bit of hope, but also helps some of us strive harder to achieve more! Are you new to casino affiliate marketing - or marketing in general? Read below... Questions and Answers - For New or Emerging Casino Affiliates Is it easy to make money online as a casino affiliate? Unfortunately, the answer here hasn't changed in quite awhile. Making money online these days in a saturated market takes dedication and effort. It isn't DIFFICULT, it takes effort. With time and dedication on your side, it is more than possible... it is easy. Without spending the time and dedication, it is a losing proposition. What do I need to do to make money online as a casino affiliate? First, you need to prepare yourself to spend 6 months solid creating content and putting that content live. This is an every day process and will help your new site gain recognition with the search engines. Without this dedication, your site will fail and you will lose faith in the ability to make money online. Simple Plan for a new gaming affiliate: * Create a website - your website should use Wordpress or some other blog platform (blogs perform better and more quickly, in my experience) - Create a custom theme for wordpress or find one that suits your content * Sign up with Affiliate Programs - DO YOUR RESEARCH. Promote Platinum Sponsors here, we have done the research for you. Verify that casinos are NOT rogued and do NOT have issues on the popular Casino Watchdog forums (like CasinoMeister tm) * Start creating content - create content that will allow you to post 2-3 times per day for a period of 4 weeks. Creating content in advance can be great if you have the time and dedication. Scheduling those posts within Wordpress is a snap and gives you the time to create more content and 'tweak' your site. * Creating Content - Part II - After the 1st month, I typically stagger my posts. Maybe 1-2 posts (per day) for a week followed by 3-4 posts (per day) for 2 weeks. *** CONTENT - General - Think your content out fully. Do not post reviews from the affiliate program. Create your own. Do not post bonus information with very little supporting information. CREATE UNIQUE CONTENT. Have plenty of context to the content, but visuals are great as well. Banners upon banners will turn off your potential customers and make your site look VERY spammy. Have you noticed that content creation is the key? Creating content that people want to see is always the key to a successful online presence. Many will try to key in specific 'Search Terms' for each peice of content, while some of us (me) just try to create content that is both accurate and interesting for the player. Whatever your approach will be, it will be successful if you work hard. So.... How much do people make as a gaming affiliate? I've created this poll to show new (and current) affiliates what others make online. This is an updates poll for 2012 and has a LOT of different choices so that we can all see what *most* affiliates generate and give us hope to reach what *some* of the big affiliates make!
