    Thumbs up Did anyone manage to get good social conversions ?

    Hi ,

    I guess we share the same fight over the social market , as gambling being treated as a crime. Did anyone managed to find a way to cloak around and actually get some conversions or exposure?

    Which social media are you talking about? I can easily see people not wanting to be associated with gambling on facebook where their personal info shows up and their relatives watch, but twitter is very much active from what I see, with people looking, engaging discussing tips, accumulators etc.

    I personally only knew one guys with good fb/twitter conversions, but over the years i lost contact with him. Don't know about conversions I'd guess people with follower tribes of 100k + do alright.

    In fact one of the studies I read about "WHY PEOPLE FOLLOW ON TWITTER" came up with kinda surprising results which were 96% because the account had a large base of followers, which lead to a lot more afterwards.

    Social engaging and frequent tweets were listed as 36% and 10% respectively, which means that good engage will still get you viewers, but I think anyone here with rational thinking would have thought it would be rank #1 factor.

    Frequent updates ranked last with less than a 1%, showing that spamming on itself wont get you much. See the flaw of the model?

    In order to get followers you have to have followers and in order to have followers you'd have to engage in some automatic follow me/i follow you practices which may or may not lead to suspension. If however you manage to break through, the stats show that past 100k-150k you start to get 20-50 followers organically per day. Doesn't mean they are targeted but still.

    May be worth it, i haven't sat down to actually create a plan and follow it for now. Whatever it is, would take months to a year probably before things unravel and that's if like i said the account doesn't get suspended.

    I was beginning to see some good results from my FB page until FB unpublished it.

    I've had a decent response through twitter. Most of the sign ups I've had are through social media as my website is still new.

    I've built up close to 2,000 followers on twitter by following people interested in gambling and unfollowing a few days later if they dont follow back. It has to be done in small numbers at a time to avoid twitter punishment so it's a slow process.

    Like xecutable said, having followers brings more followers. Therefore I'm hoping that all this work I'm putting in will eventually pay off.

    There are many tipster accounts on twitter that have massive followings and an engaged audience who must have decent conversion rates, I've tried contacting one I've had dealings with in the past but no response as of yet.

    We manage to develop a decent following on Twitter. But nothing really comes from there. FB prohibited us from boosting our posts , even though we tried to keep it very simple and not direct and aggressive.

    Have you tried running any polls or gieaways ? This used to be a good method in the past , but still many people come just to participate so ti still no actual conversion.

    We are interested in sponsoring a popular betting tip page on one of the major social channels. If you have any info please share.

    If you're willing to pay you can advertise to get followers, although it's relatively expensive... If targeted well could be profitable, we haven't tested it in a large enough sample yet to know for sure.

    Noticed you used the word relatively so I was like, let set up a campaign and try and wow 3 eur per follower .... considering the tribes some people build and kinda need to convert idk if 300k are well spent on twitter campaigns hahahaha

    This is what it showed me: Average bid €2.34 – €3.27 per follower. Come on, 1 follower isn't worth 3 eur especially on such platform with so many auto following, botting, clicking on their own accounts that have never tweeted in their lifetime. I guess the idea is "not everyone can have a large follow base"

    P.S I like the term they've used: You’ll never pay more than what you’ve bid, and you’ll usually pay less. Who's to say what usually is?

    I did exactly the same, thought I'd give it a go just to see what costs are like.

    I experimented with targeting and got 7 new followers at £1.31 per follower. I could get 7 new followers by spending 10 minutes following people - I can't see how this could ever be profitable!

    Well after a day of running, the campaign was stopped with the following: Gambling content

    Twitter prohibits the promotion of gambling content, except for campaigns targeting specified countries where it is allowed with restrictions as explained below.

    This policy applies to, but not limited: Sites or services providing tips, odds, handicapping, sports picks, forecasts or poker odds calculators

    I had only included the UK so go figure.

    Strange. One of my ads was rejected immediately but the other one ran fine for a couple of days until I paused it.

    Just UK targeted also.
