The Lazy Casino Affiliate’s Guide to 2015
Becoming a successful casino affiliate involves a lot of hard work; long, lonely hours in front of the computer; and little in the way of thanks at the end of the day. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Casino affiliates who want to take a few shortcuts and make life a lot easier have more options than they might think.
Does wanting to working smarter, not harder, make you a “lazy affiliate,”? You’ll have to answer that question for yourself. But if you follow these tips, you have plenty of time to come up with an answer.
Mobile in a Minute
Creating a mobile version of your site sounds like a big headache, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Casino affiliates who are looking for quick and dirty mobile solutions have plenty of great options for getting the job done in just a few minutes.
Both WordPress and Drupal users can utilize plug-ins and modules that display their content to mobile users with almost no effort at all. Most of these add-ons do little more than just display your content to mobile users in a readable form, but that’s all you’re really looking for at first, right?
When you’re ready to do a little bit more with your mobile presence, the tools are there. But if you absolutely, positively need to optimize for mobile right now, spend fifty bucks on a plug-in and forget about it.
SEO the Easy Way
You know the easiest way to get around the never-ending drudgery of SEO? How about forgetting about it entirely?
That’s right. If you want to free up a tremendous amount of time in 2015, stop worrying about SEO and focus on your customers. Dig into your analytics to find out what kind of content is converting and which articles are only adding to your bounce rate.
High quality, natural language content is what end-users really want and no amount of keyword research can provide that for them.
So free yourself from the chains of SEO in 2015 and spend that extra time improving your content.
Content Marketing in No Time
Content marketing and social media go together like, “rama lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong.” That doesn’t mean that posting up every link you produce on social media isn’t a time-consuming affair.
Fortunately, there are plenty of tools, like Hootsuite, that automate the social posting process.
You’ll definitely want to test out whatever product you use to make certain the posting aren’t too automated, but that shouldn’t take long. Once you’ve picked a winner, sit back and watch the social magic happen.
Ditch the Crowd
Are you tired of competing with competing with hundreds of other casino affiliates for a limited pool of poker players or sports bettors? How about swimming away from the crowd and finding your own niche?
Niche markets are the long tail of the igaming world. Sure, there aren’t that many gin rummy players out there, but those who play are definitely serious about their game and ready to play.
So ditch the herd this coming year and find a niche where you can really excel. It’s nowhere near as difficult as you might think.
Fiverr for Everything
Tired of fiddling around with logos and other design elements to make your sites look oh-so-fancy? That’s something you can easily outsource to the cash hungry mob at Fiverr.com.
Fiverr isn’t necessarily the place to start your complete re-design, but it’s definitely the place to go when you need a promotional graphic in a hurry.
Let’s face facts, casino affiliates aren’t always the best graphic designers, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just grab a fiver and head to Fiverr.
Wear the Black Hat
For the laziest of the lazy, Black Hat SEO and social media tactics offer shortcuts to top rankings and social success.
Whether it’s buying a few thousand phony follower to jump start your Twitter presence or loading your pages with hidden text, Black Hat methods work wonders.
We are, of course, kidding here. Black hat techniques offer short-term success but that success is usually paired with long-term pain. Google is very good at sniffing out black hats and punishing them accordingly.
So when you’re looking for shortcuts that put you on the couch instead of in front the monitor, stay away from the dark side.
