Preparing for the 2012 London Olympics
After years of hype, the 2012 London Olympics are now just weeks away. That means sports book affiliates still have plenty of time to develop top-notch Olympic betting content and promotions.
The challenge with trying to convert Olympic bettors is that there just aren’t that many of them out there. Because betting on the Games is illegal in Nevada, most American punters have no idea that Olympic wagering is even a possibility. So it’s up to the sports book affiliates to guide them through the process.
A good Olympic betting content strategy will involve creating a fair amount of evergreen content describing the various prop bets and strategies. Getting them past this hurdle is a big part of the process.
With so many different events to choose from over the 17-day games, bettors can feel a bit overwhelmed. Break down the events into simple terms and definitely emphasize those proposition bets. After all, more people are probably going to be interested in betting on which country is going to win the most medals than who is going to take the gold in handball.
