Get Ready for the NFL Playoffs
It’s no secret that NFL betting is big business for sportsbook affiliates. By some estimates as much as $8 billion will be wagered on the Super Bowl alone (and Las Vegas will only see around 10% of that action).
In the weeks running up to the big game twelve teams will be battling it out for a shot at the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Unfortunately, that means that its game over for 62% of the teams, and fans, in the NFL.
With some sportsbook affiliates doing as much as 80% of their business during football season, keeping all of these folks engaged until the bitter end is pretty important. Here’s a few tips for maintaining interest in NFL Playoffs, no matter who they pulled for during the regular season.
Contests & Pick ‘Ems
Sports bettors love pick ‘ems and any opportunity to show off their football knowledge. Working with your affiliate operators to arrange a decent prize for the winner – provided they’re a depositing player – is a pretty common promotion.
This keeps your players heading back to your site in the weeks running up the Super Bowl on February 3.
Find New Players on Twitter
Amongst fans of playoff-bound teams, excitement quickly reaches a fever pitch. These folks are all over social media sites like Twitter pronouncing their devotion to their teams.
Sending a link to your picks and previews to these super fans is a perfectly acceptable use of your allotted 140 characters. Just remember that a lot of these folks aren’t regular gamblers, so be certain to place prominent links to your FAQs in your previews.
Get Ready for the Next Phase
We’re all sad to see the NFL season winding down, but it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Now is absolutely the perfect time to let them know that you’re open for business all year long. The NCAA Basketball Tournament starts just a month or so after the Super Bowl, so keep up a procession of college basketball news and promotions along with your NFL content.
