    Hi

    As ever I am trying to get as much info out of you as possible.

    So I would like to know how much notice you require when posting new events, for example lets say I am going to run a new poker promo do you need weeks or days????

    Thanks in advance for your vote and comments.

    Certainly within 7 days, by the time the 21st day comes along there's a new promo up and running anyway.

    I need about a week in case I am already an affiliate of the brand. It can be made shorter if the promotion needs urgency.

    Sorry guys I dont think i was clear in what I meant.

    In the past I have had affiliates say to me I am so busy ect ect ect so if you want me to run your promo or event on my site you need to give me at least 20 days notice prior to it going live otherwise you will not get coverage.

    Thanks for your comments so far, please continue to vote and comment.

    Thanks

    I can agree with the too busy part. For me however, the length of the promo is more important.

    I usually won't take the time to promote a promo that ends in a week or two. By the time I get it advertised fully and get it in the searches it doesn't leave much time before it expires. Then there is more work by going back and changing everything I just did. That kind of thing would go on my blog or forum only.

    For all promos 7 days if fine for me for a heads up and if it's an outstanding promotion with no notice I will drop what I'm doing and add it on the spot.

    7 to 10 days. If you can give a teaser that you have something coming up at xx date, as far out as 30 days, it helps to plan out the release of it. This way I can list it and have it on "the list". For the actual launch, 7 - 10 days prior I need to have all the info, creatives (if any) and any other helpful materials.

    When the promo is a week out, then it is time to start promoting... blogs, landing page, home page, whatever. If you list it too soon, the interest is not high and it lacks a sense of urgency for the player. A week gives a good time as it will be indexed, players can start signing up, etc.

    Hope that helps.

    If it doesn't involve gathering materials it's up in a day or two.

    That means I get the whole thing in the mail, with banners and all, if applicable.

    Assuming that the promoting is simple banner replacement, advertising press release, and perhaps a bit of forum promotion then 1 weeks notice is ample.

    Unfortunately, many "promotions" fall short of being interresting enough to make the cut.

    I like at least a week. That gives enough time to make the effort of writing the offer worth it. I used to get frustrated when I would receive a promotional package that started in 1-2 days and ended in 4 days.
