    Decent selection of payment methods for affiliates - the major ones at least
    No NCO
    Affiliate managers readily available, having them on Skype is a big plus
    Good looking banners & landing pages
    On time payments
    Decent & Transparent stats and a great backend in general, if you don't have one, outsource it
    Obviously a great casino

    hey slotsaff,

    I would like to thank you for your replies.

    We totally agree on all the aspects raised.

    I would however concentrate on the first point raised: Good converting products.

    Would you mind quantifying a good converting product.
    What is a good converting product for you?
    Do you believe that a product needs time in order to begin converting?
    What are the promotional/marketing initiatives required for a product to become converting?

    hello Casey,

    Thanks a lot for your replies!!!

    Would you mind commenting on the great casino aspect as well? Aren't there any casinos that are not that great but due to the brand they carry they are converting a lot; thus contributing to the Affiliate programs success?

    No quotas - if i send ONE single player i expect to get revenue from him with a low payment limit like 50$
    No click Shaving - if i run a test and it fails i might reach to others to test also, if it fails something is wrong
    An affiliate manager team that really has several language managers and has a real interest in converting my trafic and not only get their brand name on N1 spot
    Support and site with multi lingual capability is a big plus for me
    Being capable of paying an affiliate prior to get all that content up there, most international webmasters like me write it from scratch hardly any programs will have any serious content on time translated on several languages.

    For what makes a great conversion? i would say the kind of incentive that makes a player register to get those free spins, not 10, but 50 so he then sees some real wins and money and makes the deposit and get another bonus and play play play, making him happy, entertained and i hope broke :D

    Trust is many times the issue so even if i trust a manager and the big boss takes on the course of making retro active changes well them i might not promote the brand despite the manager relation because trust is lost and most of us here are big on trust.

    Dear Viriatu,

    Thank you for your opinion.

    What you are quoting here are the essential as far as i am concerned of running an ethical and professional business...wholeheartedly i agree with most of your points.

    As far as we are concerned the players should be given the opportunity to try out the games and believe me there are many different ways of doing so; for example by providing them with the opportunity to try the platform on a demo version prior to playing for real. If a business is running as it should then its demo platform should be having the same probabilities of winning as the financial platform as well!!!

    The issue of trust is something that needs to be addressed in our market as it poses the biggest problem faced by serious operators; the market is suffering from mistrust due to the actions of some of the market stakeholders. This is something that needs to be changed and we should as a whole market address it...

    For example are you choosing with whom to cooperate, are you performing a due diligence before deciding to join forces with an operator, are you reconsidering your relationship even with big players of the market if they are treating you unfairly?
