    Question Gaze into a Crystal Ball - Will 2019 be better than 2018?

    Calendar year 2019 is right around the corner, so if you have not yet thought about or set goals for the new year, now is a good time.

    Share your plans for the upcoming year - what are you going to do new or differently to make the new year different than 2018?

    And gaze into your crystal ball and hazard a guess as to how your revenue in 2019 will compare to your 2018 revenue. Will it be better? Will it be worse? By a lot or by a little? And be sure to share the reasons you think it will change for the better or for the worse.

    This is a long-standing annual poll question, In fact, this is the 10th year in a row it has been asked. So if you are interested in seeing how folks viewed the future in any of the nine polls from past years, take a look at the following threads:

    I believe that revenue will remain the same and be within 5%.

    Given the current condition of the stock market, and the news stories about a possible 2019 recession, I don't see a rosy time ahead for the online gambling industry. How many affiliate programs have already closed down or turned rogue this year? How much worse will it get if the economy takes a nosedive in the coming year? For me personally, I see myself working much harder, while earning the same or less.

    P*rn and gambling are two industries (both online and land based) which vary rarely, if at all, are affected by down-turning economies. Though I do agree, we'll continue to see programs close, and others turn rogue.
