    Default So where do they come from

    If all of this twitter and other social media doesn't work. Where do our conversion customers actually come from. Has anybody ever done a customer survey or tried to find demographics on online gamblers?

    Default Social Bookmarking is for Backlinks

    So I have read all the posts on this thread and I did not hear anybody mention other advantages of SBM.
    I am a beginner so I don't have a strong PR. I bookmark to jumptags (as just one example) and I see the Jumptag link show up under my bookmark name in a search before the actual page of mine on my site.
    Also bookmarking will help with your standing with Google ranking a page. It gives authority. IF you could ever stimulate readers in a SBM site to start bookmarking your page (from what I read in recent SEO posts) the page will rise to the top of search queries. In fact in a post this week in an SEO forum, I read that Google has increased (since MayDay) the importance of SBM. So even if the traffic doesn't convert, it is still a very good practice to keep up with your SEO backlink campaign.

    Gosh!!!! Maybe I am off topic because this is standard/common knowledge.

    I found Facebook is ok depending on what your offering. I promote a lot of MGS casinos so although I used to get a good amount of US traffic it was useless to me.

    I think it also depends on how you market yourself in these social arenas.



    Cheers

    I continue to build out my facebook and twitter presence; however, I haven't gained many funded accounts from social media. Like a few comments above, I try to find those with poker / casino listed as hobbies.

    I dont believe in all that hype around "social media". OK, i might click a link of my friend just to see what he's up to or what kind of fun/hobby/interest he likes, but does that change my attitude ...? not really. well, maybe some 1-5% will say "whow, online poker/casino/bingo,,,, gotta try this" but still, the effort is not worth the reward.
    search engine opt is the key, reach for the folks that are actuallly looking for your offering rather than waste your time talking to the "social" crowd who doesnt give a damn...

    I didn't try it but thinking about it. After this reading I have a felling your traffic need to be more target then ever. Social Media shows that people just clicking in Like buttons, nothing more without no interest :O

    I had great success a couple years ago promoting "Free $50 on Party Poker" I was only getting $10 per sign-up, but it was very easy giving away $50 during the poker boom and at that time the sites back round checks were very minimal to where people would sign up several times. I would create profile and add players off of top poker players myspaces such as Phil Hellmuth etc.

    I'm just getting starting out again and creating sites etc and am def counting on social media to get my names out etc.

    Cant hurt...

    I am using social media a lot, so i will give some tips.
    First of all you should know that only 20% of the people who "LIKE" your page, will come back again in the page.
    Your posts should have at least one hour gap between them in order not to lose views. (if you check the views in your posts you will understand it better).
    Check about "Edgerank", the pagerank of FB (somehow), in order to have a better understanding.

    Facebook and Twitter can bring traffic for sure... Just build loyalty

    All of you saying lots of traffic and few to non conversions ...

    Can you please specify the following:-

    1. What was the niche/market? Casino, Poker, Sports betting, Bingo?
    2. What was the promotion?
    3. The landing page the promotion was pointing to.
    4. Did you test the landing page with other traffic sources to compare?

    Regards,

    Jonathan

    I think you're right @nico84, however I haven't tested social media for casinos as of yet. Generally speaking Casino players are more introvert than Sports, Poker and don't forget Bingo which I believe has the most potential in social media.

    I am running a new portal and we intend to attempt a social media marketing strategy in the coming months, I may post the results of my findings here.

    Personal experience, Facebook and Twitter are more about building brand and reputation rather than selling. Once you had a solid reputation, you will start getting clicks.

    Not sure about gambling signups, but I do have Twitter for some other websites of mine and they are surely generating a lot of revenue through clicks from Twitter.

    Agree with gamblingdomainer. We use social media - Facebook + Twitter for building our brand/reputation and retaining our members as opposed to focusing on getting new sign ups/ increasing conversions.

    I'm on most social media, even on facebook although I don't see any use for it, because it's gambling, people usually don't want their friends and family to know they gamble..

    I've had some click through s from twitter, but not many to make a great deal of difference. However, Now I have added a "follow us" button I am getting more organic followers now that we are performing better in the search engines.
