    There's more money in the igaming niche than you can every imagine ;)

    One thing has to be said though - the competition is fierce and unless you know exactly what you're doing (and do it well), you won't see any results.

    couldn't agree more, it's tough, very tough. you could invest in a lot of money but get nothing out of it.

    Poker is my cash cow, started 7 years ago, after about 6 months I earned enough to quit my day job, been at it since. It took a hit a few years back with the withdrawl of the US market. But it is still very profitable, I could not tell you how profitatble it would be starting fresh, as it is pretty much auto-pilot. Never used any ppc at all. Seo is pretty tough for new starters though as majority of the larger sites including myself have established hundreds and I know of one poker site that owns in the thousands of good websites to prop their serps.

    Good luck, one way to look at it is there is roughly 400,000 people a day become of legal age to gamble around the globe so there is never a short of people just got to find that way of getting them.

    PS full tilt would not be my first choice of rooms to push the traffic to with them only allowing you 60 days to convert a player, I would push poker stars over them if paying for the traffic, and targeting the US market, and party poker for rest of the world.

    What some people consider a disaster, others consider as an opportunity.

    for me full tilt converts the best and has the best revenue share but tell me should i invest in ppc do players keep playing for a long time or a short period then stop. can i say a depositing player will keep bringing me revenue consistently every month

    ive gone down the rakeback route and its been profitable so far, though ive not done any ppc i might look into it today, could do with a boost.
    Full Tilt converts well for me though i have them on revshare not the rakeback scheme

    Full tilt is considered the worst revenue share, while it is profitable, the lower tier at 20%, with that cut in all fees they incur, transactions, deposit, withdrawls, bonuses, player points, player point shop you get hit for them all. Far better revenue shares available, most other rooms will bump you up the scales from the start also. Conversions are good but if you target new average players they will more than likely get used to the first room they sign up with.

    In answer to your question majority of players are occassional, you just have to keep pushing until you hit a regular player, however and once again which sucks for promoting full tilt if your big player turns pro and plays for full tilt you will lose that player from your account. From my experience to earn anything considerable on revenue share you need about 100 occassional players and a couple of hardcore players with full tilt. A good portion of your players will simply hit and run, or play every couple of months. Do not have the stats to hand will pm you in answer to the pm you sent me this week with actual figures if you are really interested.

    You really are defending and posting full tilt alot, you work for them?

    Just to add, if you look at the poker rooms and see what the highest CPA they offer,then you know that on a large enough sample a player is worth more than that over the lifetime. Your sample is far to small to draw anything from, but the CPA is easy enough to work out that on average you will earn whatever % tier you fall in to from players.

    Hey,

    I'm doing poker affiliate bussiness for living over a year now.
    My site is not any big, not any good indexed by google but i managed to find players with friends and agents working for me. However, I'm not offering FullTilt for MANY reasons!
    First if you pick the rakeback scheme then your players are NEVER happy after they find that there ARE affiliates giving rakeback. But if you pick this scheme you will get paid with 3% ?!?! LOL thats low!
    Also they was good enough to NOT offer me this structure from the beggining since I'm a new affiliate? Wtf ?

    However, try the euro networks it will be far better for you, i can give you some tips but no pms are allowed at this time.

    I would like also to ask you, how do you manage the PPC since of what i`ve heard you can`t advertise gambling oriented portals almost anywhere, am I wrong?
