    Default eSports Affiliate Site Ideas

    I'm considering starting a project around eSports/eSportsBetting. I'm just starting the process and wanted to get some input about ideas, domain names, niches. Anything would be appreciated.

    I've got a few ideas but I regard them as "intellectual property" so I won't be sharing them. If you ask more specific questions you may get a better answers than this one.

    Well first is it even viable to run an eSports affiliate site.
    Would you do it like other sportsbetting sites, reviews, odds comparisons tips, etc. vs some kind of live streaming content.
    Do these kids bet any kind of money or would I be chasing pennies?
    Would you go ultra niche or spread things out?

    Firstly I think Yes it can be more than viable to run an eSports affiliate site.
    I think it makes sense to be very niche in what your trying to acheive and concentrate on doing a couple of things well.
    As for Domain names, you should think about the SEO keywords you think your potential customers will use and see if you can aquire any similar domains on the cheep and try to improve on them with fresh and regular content which will apeal to your target Niche audiance and in turn help any SEO goals you want to work towards.

    Good Luck!

    Do you play any popular video games? I think esports betting is way different than sports betting and in order to succeed you have to understand the market and be part of the esports community. Esports clearly has a huge potential in being the next big thing in the igaming industry, but in my opinion, there is no single operator that is doing things right in this niche at the moment. In the operators mind they just doing the same thing as the sports betting sites do and just offer the site an esports themed design which is clearly not good enough. It just shows their inability to fully understand the market. I personally blame it on the lack of experts. The old sports betting dude clearly needs to be replaced in those companies.

    I will give the answer to all your questions!

    Type in Google site:gpwa.org Add a space.

    Then add one of the following words:
    esport, domain name, niche, anything that interests you.

    For example:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=site...hrome&ie=UTF-8 or

    https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C...iz.oGQa4bZlz5w

    Then read the GPWA discussion threads thoroughly.

    Hey Laffit and welcome. What you're asking from these guys is a niche idea. The ones who have a great niche idea probably won't want to share it.

    Best thing to do is find it yourself and then come back and ask for advice on the specific hurdles you hit.

    My advice is to be as niche as possible. Find the lowest hanging fruit and start there.

    Will you be chasing pennies? - That honestly depends on how much effort you're willing to put in. Like anything, this is not a get rich quick thing. I'm a 10 year overnight success like a lot of guys on here.

    If you're passionate, hard working, hungry to learn, willing to be wrong.... then go for it.

    I don't see why you can't run an eSports affiliate site. You run it just like any other site and build it up and do maintenance on it in the same way. Personally, I would spread it out evenly instead of just going ultra niche and would also be focusing on what my target audience are looking for. Choose from only a handful of relevant keywords to use and they will help you in the search engines. Social media advertising is also a key factor. These things are all very important when they come together. Only time will tell when you start making commissions. When I first started as an affiliate over 10 years ago, I had to wait about 6-8 months until I made my first handful of commissions. It all takes time, patience and a lot of consistent hard work.

    This question was kind of naive. It is like asking for salary for no work. My tip is: If anybody over here gives you a concrete tip, do NOT follow it. If it was so great, they would do it on their own

    Depends on what you wanna do. If you want to create a website that is essentially your competitor's website but with a flashier design, I'd go for the niche content. I suppose you'd need a lot of funding to get a general-themed site to the top.

    As for the chasing the pennies part and the general advice, talk to the gamers. That is if you haven't already. I don't know whether you know a lot about esports, but someone who spends 8 hours a day playing Fortnite and talks to his friends about Fortnite in his free time would be a more valuable source of ideas.

    Also, did you know about Belgium banning loot boxes? This may spread imo.
