    Default I already have traffic, I already know my people are gamblers. Now what?

    I currently run a message board with 15,000 members. It's fairly active.

    I already know they have a gambling mentality, and I know they have credit cards and the ability to wire money if they don't have credit cards.

    I'm really looking for a long term game plan here - knowing what YOU know about the gambling industry and the sponsors out there, what would you do if you inherited my network?

    By way of reference, and so you know you're not just typing a response to speed along your probably unavoidable carpal tunnel... I recently ran a promotion that generated over $100,000 in sales. This is the same crowd that I want to market to. I will sign up under your affiliate link if you give good advice and a clear gameplan for me to follow.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Wolfy! Good to see ya man.

    It's a tough call right now due to banking issues. Hopefully we will see a turn around after the November elections when a change in legislation will be politically possible stateside.

    Depending on the country that your target market lives in whether or not there are banking issues, and how severe they are.

    Also, depending on the country helps decide what software and casino groups you will want to work with the most as well.

    As an example, if your target market in US visitors, you will likely not want to promote Microgaming or Playtech, since nether of these operators allow their licensee's to accept players from the US.

    However, Rival and RTG do.

    In the case of RTG some operators accepot US players and some do not.

    Players from the US have generally had more deposit and banking issues than players from some other countries.

    As far as programs to work with, you could check out my casino affiliate site (link in my sig) as well as read a lot here, AGD, GIA, GAP, AffAid and an ever growing list of casino affiliate resource sites....

    The more time you spend now researching and reading, the better you can decide which groups will do the best for your promotions as you roll them out.

    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly!

    I'd think in order to help you more accurately, you'll need to post the country your traffic is in and what the theme of the site you have is (presuming you aren't willing to share the address.)

    What's worked well in the past will also help.

    There are a wide range of gaming products on offer and knowing these details will allow others to give more reasoned advice.

    I have to agree with above. It looks like you are looking for someone to "sell" to you, but in order to do that I think the countries and other information about your players are very important. An program should know where they best convert...

    Unfortunately for me, my traffic is 95% US.

    The domain I WILL be using for promotion is gamblerslair.com - I can do anything with it, it's currently just using a placeholder wordpress layout.

    I'm confused. Where's your 15000 members coming from if gamblerslair.com isn't developed?

    This is not necessarily a bad thing.
