    Default Bet365 affiliate program requirement? What does it take?

    Hello,

    I have tried twice to become an affiliate with bet365 but I get the same answer evrytime: "unfortunately you have not been accepted"

    does anyone know what they are looking for? High traffic? Website layout? Speed?

    Its hard to know what they expect when they don't inform of their requirements

    Thanks

    Jonas

    I'd suggest that B365 want (perhaps among other things):

    Traffic that has the right intent
    Traffic from regions that will be valuable to them (and/or legitimate for them to be entertaining)
    From a site that's well constructed, well-populated with useful info, and already has or is growing towards strong traffic numbers and looks likely to be able to maintain that level of performance

    There might be some question marks around some of those, of course. Particularly around what constitutes a valuable enough volume.


    I have some recent experience (this year) of having a site accepted (and obviously I know the numbers involved with that one but would be guessing the same as anyone else on what the low-end cut-off would be).

    If you want to post the site, you may get some feedback on why others think you're hitting a wall, or feel free to PM in confidence if you prefer not to say at this point.

    It's not always just about the sites and traffic, 365 are a very people oriented company and they like to know who they work with. Best thing to do is arrange a meeting or go catch them at the next conference.

    Another very important aspect is regulatory compliance, proving that you understand the requirements in the jurisdictions you’re marketing to and are agile enough to adjust when required might help also.

    They are looking for websites ranking for certain keywords of their interest as I've been told last year when I tried to apply for a partnership.

    Well, B365 cover casino, live casino, bingo, poker...alongside ofc sportsbetting.

    I would have thought that anything covering any of those that have strongish acceptable traffic with valid intent and a chance of consistent conversions would have a chance of being accepted without too much hassle.

    (one day maybe someone can teach me how to do multiple quotes! edit/PS thx to Rick, on the ball as ever, for already sending instructions)


    While not disagreeing with the sentiment in any way (or the conceptual or real value of it), and also not being wishfully/intentionally offensive (more a level of admiration, actually)...I'd suggest you are both playing in a different level/area of the game...or - when you played it - the game had some different rules. Many of the rest of us just won't have the level of clout that you have.

    There is a risk here that the OP (and others in similar positions) may think this is all that's required...when it's a no-brainer that without the right site/traffic/intent, no amount of face to face pleasantries are likely to have a significant bearing (although, I do agree that in a marginal case it might help...and there is no doubt that some personal interaction is almost certainly desirable, whatever you're presenting).

    So, don't head for marginal. Be sure the site is in the best state that you can have it, and one in which (if you were in B365's position) you would be thinking 'yes, a piece of this is going to be valuable to me'. When you have that status, then yes some personal interaction is highly likely to be valuable (to both parties).

    You have made valid points and are all important.

    People do business with people - that is the fundermental thing i've learnt that over more than 40 yrs of earning a crust (the last 8 yrs more so being an affiliate). With a solid releationship most things can be overcome.

    This is especially true if you're a small affliate - which i class myself as. I have no clout - no one knows who I am, so I have to engage people in the right way to get the best deals. It works both ways - i can meet someone and immdeiately tell if I could trust them and work with them or not, something I'd never find out through email etc.

    The best advice for the OP is to do all things, none exclusive from eaxh other, but don't underestimate the power of a face to face meeting and relationship. it's worth far more than people realise.

    I also agree with your points but all I am saying is it will help, more so with 365 than any other brand.

    It was definitely different when I started but I didn't have a proper relationship with them until I met them. I've had the same AM for 7 years and that is critical to why they are so good, without going to meet them you can't develop those relationships. I know quite a few affiliates more recently that have had success with getting started by going to meet them, finding the right contact and developing that personal relationship.

    This only applies though if you have good content, target the right markets and take compliance really seriously, as others have pointed out. It's not so much about traffic levels with them its all about the type of traffic and intent. They will take 1 account a month if its a good account from a decent responsible source.

    From my own experience, I can safely say that i have also not been approved on several occasions despite having a good quality site with traffic from top tier countries - I joke when I say this, but I think another requirement bet365 will have will include

    Blood type
    Household Income
    Number of children (must have at least 2 so that one can be sacrificed to their leader)
    Criminal History
    Your ability to do a song and dance on command to entertain the management team

    This is my experince too. I try to become partner with few websites, but none of these have keywords. But nobody tell me what keywords they are looking for.

    For me Bet365 was the absolute worst ever converting major bookmaker, I really have no clue why people are so into Bet365. To put it simple, you probably aren't missing much being declined from Bet365.

    We had an account for 7 years and they closed it on us .I recently applied as we have some legal Ontario sites we are developing and they also denied us so I assume I will wait until I am ranking on our new Ontario site for them to contact us lol .

    I think the final requirement may let me down

    I think it's that mindset of can't get in, lets keep trying, I must get in. Kinda like a door-b#tch at a night club.

    Compliance: a code word for control

    Do the right thing, even when no one is looking. It's called integrity.

    It's your right to be treated honestly: fairness for all igaming affiliates - doch.news - no sponsors. Hence no conflicts of interest!
