    Hi Friends,

    I created a thread devoted to updates from SlotV casino with considering of our discussion. What would you suggest/improve to make it more efficient?
    Thanks in advance!

    We have often asked sites for content and, as above, most of the time it's either 1000% hyperbole or simply churned out duplicate content that's gone to everyone. It's unusable. If we've ever used client-supplied content it has ALWAYS needed to be re-written.

    As an affiliate you may as well write it yourself and save yourself the hassle.

    As a bingo/casino/slots Owner/Affiliate Manager you should know your site inside out and be smart enough to write good quality unique content for any (decent) affiliate that requests it.

    Hey Mr bingo/casino/slots owner, cos I'm in a good mood please may I let you into a HUGE affiliate secret that in 15 years in the game not ONE Affiliate Manager has ever worked out.....



    If you supply an affiliate with good quality, unbiased, unique, factually truthful, grammatically correct content/news/review do you know what they'll do... ? They'll stick it on their site immediately. With your affiliate link. And send traffic to it. And get you clicks/regs/FTDs.



    Yeah I know, sorry guys, sorry I've given the game away but you know what, I bet no-one will do that. Anyone ever heard of a copywriter working within an Affiliate Team?????

    We'll carry on writing our own content....

    I did this once. I gave the same affiliate 10 different unique reviews for the same casino for their 10 sites. I wrote them myself. They were LONG and as you say, unbiased, factually truthful, grammatically correct etc etc.

    That was 2 years ago. They still haven't used them.

    If I can write thousands of reviews, I may as well have my own affiliate sites.

    I agree that not everyone will be like this, but truth be told, you can provide everything on a silver platter and it still won't get used.

    Offered my web development skills gratis to a car club I was a member of. Aside for the site itself, had a cart, payment gateway for membership, the whole kit and caboodle. Three months down the track, and many hours of work later, a couple of committee nuffs nuffs decided they wanted major changes. I basically had to start from scratch. I told em to stick it! Never completed the job, and quit the club.

    Not the 1'st time I've provided my skill set gratis. But it was the last time. Seems when most people don't have an investment of either time, cash or both in something, then their level of motivation|commitment takes a back seat too.

    That's the truth right there.

    I write all my own content too. Aside from making it unique and enjoyable to read, you pretty much know your own content "inside out". For instance, my grammatic structure is different than most, and knowing what I've written, in the way I write, has helped me 'bust' numerous lazy webmasters who have scraped my content. At a mere glance I recognise my work.

    To me a great part of creating of some decent site (casino aff. site or any other kind) is a text writing. I think your texts develop your brand and I guess everyone agree branding matters. Look at LCB, Casnolistings and other good ones, once you there you feel the fashion brought with feather. The truth is that no one could breath into your biz that spirit that makes it outstanding. No one but you.


    Supplying a content we have the same purpose that Morpheus had: to show you the door. And you're the one that has to walk through it.

    We don’t ask programs to write reviews for us. We write our own reviews to ensure they are not self-serving by promoting themselves. It serves us and the players to know that the reviews were not written by the program. What is appreciated is if the program could take a quick look at the review to see if there is anything inaccurate or that may have been missed.

    As for news articles they can be useful and included in our blog network however again having unique content is always much better.

    Some operators/affiliate managers are happy to scan articles looking for inaccuracies for you....

    It depends a bit. I agree with you, but I see also sites that are doing well with delivered articles or articles bought for $ 0,02 / word. It depends on the site and your skills. If you really want to brand, it matters, but not every site is branding.

    2) How many News articles have you been given by an operator to Post that has been uniquely written for you or have you done all this yourself?
    1) i never asked a written review, the review must be made by the affiliate in my opinion, because the casino can be pushing more to 1 side and the affiliate to the other, and also, as Renee said, how to write unique content to many affiliates?
    and how the program knows what kind of review/info is the affiliate looking for?

    if the program just send to the affiliate a review, with many affiliates using the same text, how the content can be unique? CANīT!

    so, i think the reviews should be made by the affiliate, based in a "player experience" way.
    affiliate can create an account and put him/herself in "place of the player" and write the review in the way:
    as a player, what was the best of this casino? and the worst? deposit/withdraw options are good? live chat is friendly? no? is professional? takes many time to answer? gives clear answers or is always transferring to another operator? how fast was the cash-out? and the time of docs verify?
    what would be the probably of me (as a player) recommend the casino to my friends?

    and write the review using that info, the way i said that, can be any other, depending on what the affiliate really wants, affiliate who must know what he/she wants, not the program.

    2) i write by myself.
