How the bingo-affiliate industry landscape has changed over the past 10 years
“When we first started, I’ll just say ten years ago, it was all about search engine optimization. A lot of affiliates are coming in getting great rankings using Google strategies to get those rankings and we had a lot of group share at the back of that. And a lot of those affiliates disappeared and what’s happening now is a lot of CPA (cost-per-action) affiliates coming into the market doing a lot of PPC (pay per click), a lot of Facebook PPC and then there’s also the mobile side, there’s a lot of feeds coming just concentrating on mobile because that’s the new wide and everything’s going. Affiliates are changing habits. Their viewing traffic is changing.”
How the UK POC tax is going to affect the online-bingo industry
“We will have to deal with that as it comes out. There are some people who think that it is potentially a good thing. We are sort of looking at operators, and when they want to come and work for us, are they going to be here for a long term, Because it’s a risk for us to do deals if the operator won’t be here for a long term because of the point of consumption tax. If they’re not dedicated with their business and a decent brand. We are up for the long hold and we want them to be too. ”
Scott Logan’s advice for the affiliates who wants to succeed in 2014
