    Ps Grosvenor affiliate programme is the worst in over 20 we’ve promoted.

    Current earnings this month ZERO - FTD’s submitted last year 140 amount of current active players ZERO - last communication with my manager don’t even remember his name.

    I have been earning quite well from Grosvenor for a couple of years now... but it is ALL sub-affiliate commission!
    No income at all from my own links.
    I have no idea who that sub affy is - but they've done me a big favour! :)

    Genuinely...

    Not really a fan of the big UK brands after William Hill, Ladbrokes, and SkyBet began to put the
    screws to affiliates. We promote some of the lesser known UK brands and we do well with them.

    It's been six months now and I still haven't got a single sign-up! It's really depressing but I'm not giving up!

    After a 12 month period, of the 100 new affiliates who entered the industry (12 month previously), maybe 1 or 2 haven't given up. It's a hard slog these days, given the multiple pitfalls and steep learning curve.

    If it was easy, everyone would be doing it ;)

    @Lacy - what's your web site URL?

    Keep going and don't give up. Maybe try and explore a new niche?

    Unless you have high xx.xxx or xxx.xxx budget...

    I would first work on your website. Find a good niche or a realistic way to get a piece of the pie. Then work, let's say a year - year-and-a-half, without having a look at the stats. Just build content and links.

    It makes no sense to check stats daily or something. Work on your website.

    My opinion might sound a bit harsh, but it's with a good intention.

    I have no idea what's a Birko, but Vegas rings a bell (Las Vegas). When I enter the website I see:

    - sports betting section which is just a banner farm with 100 words or something. No way you will rank this.
    - news section: last update september 2017 and I see an Amazon banner
    - then in the menu 2 casinos. The reviews are very thin: both quantity and quality.
    - then there's a bingo banner farm
    - some US section with dozens of the same affiliate links

    In the side bar i see banners about bitcoins, a deposit bonus, some sound thing, sport and some cheap money making banner.

    And a forum. Why this website should have a forum?

    I would have wondered me way more if you would have a sign up then that you haven't.

    The websites lacks focus (bingo, bitcoin, Amazon, sports, mobile... ) and lacks quality content. Articles are all short and lacking quality.

    The website also has almost no backlinks and no way that like this you're going to get some natural links.

    Like this you can continue 6 years without earning a penny. With this thin content banner farm without focus, you can just gain something if you're a master in off-site SEO. But that doesn't seem the case neither.

    Sorry to be harsh, but I think it's better to be honest.

    And so you shouldn't there is no effort in that site whatsoever a few pages with few text whilst many of us spending hundreds of hours weekly perfecting a top site, you need to work much harder if you want to get anywhere

    No problem posting a link (as long as you're not blatantly spamming) - we're all friendly affiliates here!

    Have to agree with the other comments above - quite a nice looking layout - but terrible lack of content.
    You obviously write very well - so that's not the problem.
    Only 2 casinos :eek: You definitely need a LOT more if you want to start getting conversions.

    Looked at your Leo Vegas page: the banner doesn't even fit properly (right edge cut off), but one thing is for sure, no-one can miss the 18+, T&Cs apply, etc... I see it FIVE times! :confused:
    Looks like a Slotland banner missing on the right too...

    Smarten up the site, add more quality content, concentrate on one product (casinos), work hard and hopefully something will come of it.

    PS: At which coastal town did you mis-spend your youth in arcades?
    Mine was in Hastings! :cool:

    Ok, thanks for the advice, even if it is a bit harsh! :eek: Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Like I said, I'm not giving up! :p

    ps: KK, in answer to your question, Great Yarmouth and New Brighton. Ah they were the days :cool:
