GPWA Times Magazine - Issue 54 - November 2022

writer, SMM specialist, web designer, marketer, PR specialist and “targetologist.” I completely agree that in one to two years it is impossible to become a good specialist, but now it is much easier for me to work with colleagues. I understand them. I distinguish bad work from good work and I can draw a banner or write text myself, if necessary. As for iGaming, I did not get to it right away. I started with easier directions, such as nutrition. Logging into Nutra is much easier than betting or gambling. It’s easier to make a simple video and launch it on TikTok or Facebook. But I can’t say that I really enjoyed working with weight loss products or penis enlargement creams, so when I was called to work at iGaming, I happily moved on. What is your typical day like as an affiliate manager with Iguana Affiliates? Usually, my workday starts at 10 a.m. My colleagues and I have a meeting where we set the top priority tasks we need to get done for the day. Next, I start responding to partners, usually two to three hours a day, since we are just getting started with many. I send out requested information, set up strategies, and negotiate deals. The second half of the day, I usually use to find new partners, possible ad placements or work through other issues related to promoting Iguana Affiliates. Most of the time is spent cold searching new partners who have never heard of us, so the second half is really long for me. It is difficult and challenging, but I have no choice. I have to put in a lot of effort in order to increase our brand awareness, because there is very strong competition in this market. What do you enjoy most about your job and, more specifically, working in the iGaming affiliate industry? Because I have already worked in large companies, I can say for sure that I like the lack of bureaucracy, dress code and clear working hours. I can come to work in swimming trunks and slippers for dinner. I can ask for remote work and the management is quite loyal to this. The second point I can highlight is the budget. I really like to work with large budgets. If at my last job I was allocated one amount, here, I have to work with 59 G P W A t i m e s . o r g
