Two Dozen Ponies from Cheltenham


Bookies aren’t the only people to make some nice money at top sporting events. I sensed that I could make some pocket money if I kept on top of the increased bookmakers online offers during the Cheltenham Festival.

I refreshed their content each day with all the latest bonus codes and I even created a bespoke page for the four-day event.

Cheltenham Festival

Was the effort worth it? Too right! I made 600 in commission and that is a huge turnaround to the 15 I made last Grand National Day.

Some notes on the gambling side of things:

Whilst I didn’t manage to convert for Sky Bet, the daily emails from the new Affiliate Hub were very useful and Jo from stream:20 was able to provide bespoke creatives immediately.

It has taken me 15 sign-ups to get into positive equity with Coral Rev Share via the Brand Conversions network.

I’ve a few gamblers betting over 2,000 a time at Coral Casino but without these the commission would be stuck in the negative. I would have made 75 commission if promoting via Affiliate Window but I am interested to see how much I can make via this residual income.

Last month I queried why I didn’t receive a Jackpotjoy revenue share payment on the usual date of the 26th. It transpires that I “had a substantial winner”.

This meant that the net revenue I generated was negative. Fortunately, Jackpotjoy don’t carry over negative, so I shall receive future payments.

To other gambling merchants, please add an 88×31 micro bar creative to your mix. You’ll then feature on the Grand National page.

  1. Interesting Points!

    We recently signed up for Prime Scratch Cards and read that they have a “scratched” commission principle set so that if affiliates do not receive a certain amount each month, it does not roll over. Obviously you can see tha making payments upto certain amounts does not make financial sense, but you would have thought they would carry it over to the next month.

    I acctually found you for the cheltenham festval post which made me smile – but firstly *conratulations* on your profit from the 2009 season. I live about 1/2 mile from the track, and always take part in *manual* promotional activity at the track every year, for one reason or anothr!!

    You obviously have your head screwed on and seem to know the affiliate gambling arena more than most – and keep a pretty healthy input on your blog.

    Best of luck, and if you can share any bad instances, I would love to hear them so we can keep a nice clean fence surrounding our business – an in return I would be happy to share any cases of “bad experience” with you in return.

    Best Regards
    Darren
