For those starting out in the Casino Affiliate business it can be a lonely uphill struggle. In the beginning most affiliates will be working alone and largely in the dark, trying to figure out the best merchants to promote, which casinos convert and discovering the most profitable niches.
All casino affiliates will make mistakes in the beginning. It can take years to accumulate the knowledge needed to turn traffic into profits. However, you can limit mistakes by joining a few friendly Affiliate Forums.
I’ve found the majority of affiliates are more than happy to share information with one another. However, that’s not to say they will give you a list of there most profitable keywords! Nevertheless, they’ll help you identify rogue merchants, share SEO tips and give coding/tech advice – along with numerous other subjects and topics will can help you build your business.
