FROM THE FORUMS Some things I have learned as an iGaming affiliate #1 sweetbet 27 March 2017, 10:57 p.m. Private Member I thought that it might be interesting to start a thread about some of the things that you have learned as an affiliate working in this industry. One thing I’ve learned the hard way is never to put all your eggs in one basket. There were times when I sent the bulk of my traffic to one or two sponsors, only to have something go wrong with one of the sponsors (closed down, turned rogue, etc.), and lose the bulk of my monthly income overnight. Never again! Now it’s your turn. What have you learned? “ Reply With Quote #2 golfbettingsystem 28 March 2017, 2:49 a.m. Public Member Don’t give up on a program if the early results aren’t what you expect, particularly if it’s a program that’s well- respected by other affiliates. The more first-time depositing players you get, the more stable and consistent the performance (generally) becomes. It pays to be patient. “ Reply With Quote #3 KasinoKing 28 March 2017, 4:31 a.m. Private Member I would have to write a book! In my 10+ years I have learned hundreds or even thousands of things, and yet I STILL don’t know everything. Here are my Top 5: 1. Don’t work with operators who jerk their players around. 2. Don’t work with operators who have negative carryover. 3. Don’t work with operators who have quotas. 4. Don’t work with operators who are not transparent with the stats and figures. 5. Be very, VERY careful about working with any operators from Israel. “ Reply With Quote NOTE: Thread was edited for length and clarity The GPWA community is made up of gambling affiliates with thousands of combined years of experience. Luckily, many of these industry veterans are always willing to share their thoughts and insights and to offer recommendations and tips to fellowmembers. That, in essence, is what the GPWA is all about: A place where iGaming affiliate friends and competitors come together to support each other. A perfect example occurred earlier this year on the GPWA Forums, when user sweetbet started a thread by presenting a few examples of what he has learned over the years, and asked others to chime in. Not surprisingly, the responses were immediate, compelling and educational. To read the entire thread, please visit: .
