    Question How did the first quarter of 2020 compare with the fourth quarter of 2019 for you?

    The first quarter of 2020 ended yesterday at midnight, so it is now time to ask our periodic question to members about how the revenue they are earning has changed over the last quarter.

    If you compare revenue from the first quarter of 2020 (January to March) to revenue from the fourth quarter of 2019 (October to December), how did it change? Did it get better, stay the same, or get worse for you?

    And post your thoughts about the changes you have seen and your view of what the future holds. How much do you think the changes you saw between the two quarters is due to general economic conditions, how much is related to changes in the online gaming affiliate marketplace, how much is related to seasonal fluctuations, how much to special events, how much is purely random, and how much is related to changes in what you are doing?

    I'm particularly interested to hear thoughts about the extent to which the coronavirus pandemic might be influencing the earnings of individual members here.

    I'd say those who are self isolating, are responsible for the HUGE spike in my earnings, especially for March 2020, for my main earner program. That aside, I'm seeing large increases in NDP's at some programs (buffalo for example). Though, lots of small minimum deposits. Which, accounting for, they probably take the welcome bonuses, that and the additional fees on each deposit, I'm not actually seeing much RS from these NPD's, as yet.

    On programs I don't widely promote, they're also starting to earn some dollars, which, least this month, I'll receive payments from everyone. Nice change, instead of having to wait a few months to reach payment threshold on these not so heavily marketed programs.

    I can't put it down to anything else, other than, the current status quo of the world, right now.

    Growth here too - but only really from previously registered players.

    I only had a small rise in growth, but any progress attained is better than none

    There is no big growth at the moment, but we do predict some in the near future fact we have decided to re arrange.
    These corona quarantine times put us all at home, if it means more or less time to work - its another story, but it did change priorities, focus, way of thinking and also we all changed a bit.

    We looked at some stuff we have done for many years and changed them, adjusted them and some were cancelled as well.
    So we hope t see the growth of these actions in Q2, lets see...

    We've noticed a small spike in the past month (but nothing huge, and not per quarter), in terms of old players depositing, but also an increase in conversion for brands which were otherwise pretty dormant.

    It's a natural phase I think, due to the massive self isolation and lack of activities. It all might be followed by another kind of phase, where people will be worried as to their finances and the economical context We'll see, it's all quite unpredictable, I believe we'll have to change our ways, rethink it all and readjust after a few months.

    January good, February average, March shocking - Cheltenham week was terrible for us, then everything has dried up with Covid. Hopefully a strong bounce when this is all over.

    I think it really depends on what vertical you are promoting.

    Sportsbetting certainly went down, casino almost certainly went up for most of us here.

    For Casino City, the change from February to March in 2019 was -4.2% and in 2018 the change from February to March was -5.1%, so historical patterns show March as being a slower month than February for us. This year, March 2020 showed a slight increase from February 2020. So there is a slight uptick in affiliate earnings for us in March versus what we've seen historically, which I'm guessing is related to the coronavirus.

    Hi friends! First of all, I wanted to wish everyone good health!
    There was not a large increase in our projects, but we noticed some changes. The small first deposits became a little more. In the income over the past two months, this is not much reflected, but traffic is noticeably increasing.
    Conclusion for me personally, the migration of players is present. How this will affect future conversions is not yet clear.

    I think that we should be flexible and work on the pain of players who come from other niches, such as sports betting or land-based casinos.

    For the time being, many are staying at home and searching for some fun online, which often leads to some kind of gambling. I think the traffic is increasing in most cases unless google punished you for some shady tactics

    I find that casino is doing better in this quarter mainly because of the COVID-19 effects, otherwise I believe it would be a downswing, and I see the same thing with Forex - there's a lot more increase in Forex than in gambling

    Growth here too but mostly due to the hard and ongoing work, regarding the economic condition I would say here it's not effecting too much because on some aspects it helped the growth while on other aspects it significant caused loses so I would say it's balanced overall.

    The quarter was down. The second quarter is also off to a bad start. It is because of my customer focus. My two biggest signup periods are during January for US football and during March for college basketball. There has been a little crossover to horses and poker but not even close to the handle I am used to.
    For all the talk about gambling addicts. It appears the vast majority of my customers have the will power to not bet when their sports isn't available.

    Will be great to hear from Poker platforms here as the poker industry doubled itself recently, since many sports bettors found Poker to be good replacement. It make sense for sports bettors to realize esports and virtual sports, but just the poker numbers raised alot

    Q1 was not so bad for us and all increased almost 50%. Q2 will be fantastic.... but only because of the corona situation ):
