GPWA Times Magazine - Issue 36 - October 2016

When did you launch bestbettingca- How long did it take for it to start producing revenue? We started with the preparations in December 2014, and we went online in February 2015. The first revenue came as a surprise, but it started at the end of March 2015, so within two months. That first revenue was a real motivator. It gave us just the kick to go for it! How did you get into iGaming affiliate marketing? What did you do before? In the past I worked as an affiliate manager at Scoot Media, a performance-based marketing network. During my work there I was also pushing some casino offers, like Unibet and Karamba. I always liked the gambling world, and did some sports betting and gambling in casinos in Holland. When I saw the revenues and possibilities of the offers I thought, why not start my own website? So in 2009 — or maybe 2010, I don’t know for sure — I started a small website in Holland and kept it just for a few months. Then I sold it to a guy who was in the business for a longer time. The reason I sold it was that I was going to start my own business, out of affiliate marketing and online marketing. I started a company where I designed and started a mobile soccer app for local football teams in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands, there are around 3,000 local football clubs. And I saw a business in giving GPWA AFFILIATE INTERVIEW SERIES Cycling is one of Dave's favorite activities, and he travels to compete in cycling challenges several times a year. Stay active with these busy webmasters This issue’s interviewees run very different businesses with unique approaches. One is part of a large team at an ever-expanding family of sites; another runs a niche sports betting site on his own. One splits his time between industries; another dedicates every second to his iGaming sites. But all four love the autonomy and opportunity of working as affiliates. * Views expressed in these interviews are those of the webmasters and do not necessarily reflect the views of the GPWA. Due to space constraints, we could not print the interviews in their entirety. The complete text will be posted on the GPWA Forums in the weeks following publication.
