Niche Marketing Explained

Niche marketing is focusing on a single aspect of a wider market. When it comes to online casinos and online gambling, niche is certainly a way forward and not doing anything niche for your first website is considered a very risky move. The reason being is that you’ll be competing against websites that have been around for 10+ years and have very large marketing budgets and dedicated professionals working on the site every day!

Affiliate marketing is any type of marketing where you work with affiliate programs and get paid commissions based on sending traffic where most of the time commissions are paid out when sales are made. You can earn revenue share when you refer depositing players or CPA which is a one time payment for referring a depositing player.
