Make money promoting online poker rooms.
Aside from simply playing good poker, you can actually make extra money by promoting online poker rooms. Being a "poker affiliate" simply involves sending other players to online poker rooms, and in turn you will earn a commission for every player you send.
How much can you earn?
It varies, but you can receive either:
- 20-40% lifetime commission
- $80+ one time payment
for each player you send. Therefore, if you can send a fair number of players, you can make a decent amount of money and even make a living from poker affiliating alone.
How do you get started as a poker affiliate?
Anyone can sign up to be a poker affiliate and start making money, the hard part is actually getting around to sending actual real money players to the room. It's all perfectly safe and above board, it's just that most people are not aware of this or fail to make any money because they are not sure how to go about doing it.
I have actually created a whole site to helping poker affiliates get started with promoting online poker rooms and making money. The site is called New Poker Affiliate and does a decent job of covering all of the essential information you need to start making money as a poker affiliate.
Free poker content.
If already own your own website or blog, I have written some free content that you can use on your site. These articles should help you to pad out your site and keep your visitors hanging around for a little longer, which should help you get those extra conversions.
All that I ask is that you keep the text links in these articles pointing to this site. If you do that, I do not mind how many articles you decide to use or how often you use them.
- Money Management
- Mathematics and Poker
- Bet Sizing
- Table Image
- Online Poker vs. Live Poker
- Playing Big Pairs
- Trouble Hands in Texas Holdem
- Online Poker vs. Online Casino
Where to sign up for affiliate programs.
Instead, I would highly recommend the Poker Affiliate World network, which essentially allows you to promote as many poker affiliate programs as you like from one place with higher commissions. So instead of earning a smaller amount from each room after having signed up to each one individually, you can get all your payments together from one place and earn more money from the start.
Through this affiliate network you can promote some big name rooms like:
- Full Tilt
- Party Poker
There are no catches to using this site and the network is incredibly safe and popular. You will find that I strongly recommend that new affiliates use this network on my Poker Affiliate site, as there is no need to settle for less money when you're starting out, plus it's more convenient.
