    Lightbulb To promote or not - subaffiliate programs

    I am running www.BestBonusMoney.com aff. site where I
    gathered most of online sportbook, casino and poker rooms.

    I found myself in big dilemma
    Whether to put sub affiliate links on my site or not?

    The next step is to promote affiliate programs so my visitors can create their own site and continue registering by themselves.

    1. Player register through many link /site, and he introduce another friend who also registers.
    commission generated between 10€ - 120€

    2. Player visit my site and decide to join some aff program and continue registering his players on his own.
    commission generated 5%-10% of all generated traffic through his site

    Which is better ?

    I don't think option 1 would work for you. Sub affiliate links direct you to the affiliate program not the actual casino, etc, that your players are looking for. In general the vast majority of them aren't going to signup as an affiliate and because your link doesn't put them straight to the site they want, they'll leave and leave you with nothing.

    The second option doesn't work that well either. Players aren't interested in setting themselves up as affiliates and even if they did, they won't bother getting people to register directly through their signup link. Setting up sites isn't what they want to do wither.They'll prefer just to tell their friend that they play at casinox and to go there to play.

    If you want to market sub-affiliate links, you need to setup unique pages targetted at Webmasters who either already have an interest in the gaming industry or would like to get involved, at least to try it out. This can work - I don't promote sub-affiliate links now but used to have a few Webmasters making me $1k + per month.

    These are of course, just my opinions, and others may feel differently, but I would expect most would agree.

    unless you have reason to believe that you have alot of webmaster traffic, i wouldn't make the sub-aff links a priority.

    This is just a guess but I would imagine that the potential profits from sub-affs is quite low unless you can hit quite large numbers of signups. Probably only the top 10% of webmasters make any decent money, so you'll to somehow signup quite large numbers before you can see decent trickle down to you.

    For the time being work on monetizing the player traffic your getting now.

    OK I understand what are you saying.
    The thing is this is like "double–edged sword"
    It has bad and good side.

    ANW I will start promoting sub-affiliates soon and will let you know how it is going.

    Cheers!
