    Does anyone have any experience in promoting online poker tournaments?

    Im running a full tilt poker league on my website (PM if you want to see it) starting from next week and im hoping to gain some comissions from the full tilt affiliate program along the way.

    Basically user signs up to my website and then gets sent a link to full tilt using and then gets sent the tourny password each week.

    I know that using a facebook like page would be one way to go though i have limited experience promoting these types of pages.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to promote an online poker tournament?or any other poker affiliates here for that matter?

    Also thinking of running a BHW poker league if anyone is interested?

    I would definately be willing to learn. I've always wanted to learn so i bought some books and didnt learn shit. If i had someone teach me like on the internet or sitting across a table from me then i would pick it up easily haha :)

    I play poker daily. I have a few poker websites myself. It's really difficult to get new people to sign up for well known poker websites like tilt or stars. This is because most people already have accounts with these sites. If you are looking to make money with an affiliate program I would use a site like cake or UB. You want United States players to play and these sites accept US players.

    Send me a PM with your link also.

    looks like there is some interest in a bhw tourny,

    ill set up a weekly or monthly one if i get enough interest and post the details in the lounge.

    Id just like to say (before people start flaming me) i will not be making any commissions off the torney unless users sign up through my affiliate link which i will not be posting here.

    eagleshot - cheers, im already promoting cake and UB as well as a few others.

    Ive done very little promotion so far ive got plenty of experience as an affiliate just not as a poker affiliate which is a whole different ball game, the same principles obviously apply to SEO however the competition is tight and im looking to get an edge

    A BHW poker tourney def sounds fun, I love watch/playing poker though I'm not that great.
