Poker Affiliates should reinvest money to get the ball rolling

One of the greatest feelings as an online poker affiliate is receiving that first check or payment from one of the poker rooms you are promoting. Not only because of the fact that you are able to put some extra money in your back pocket, but because it really shows that your hard work is paying off, and that making money online isn’t just something that ‘other people do’.

So what should you do with your affiliate payments? For some of you this is going to be a simple question; head to the bar and get a load of drinks in with your friends. After all, you did work hard for this money, so why not treat yourself? This is a top-notch idea, because affiliating is not about all work and no reward, so treat yourself and look forward to the following payment the next month. However, aside from the first payment (if you choose to treat yourself with it), what should you do with the rest of the money you make from being a poker affiliate?

Some people will decide to carry on treating themselves and buy stuff they don’t really need, but these types of people are normally in the poker affiliate business to get a quick $100 or so, and they will never make it far in the poker affiliate industry. But if you want to continue as an affiliate and try and double the amount you make the next month, you should reinvest money back into your site. Now if you really have a love for your site and have the desire to make it as a big timer one day, making the decision to reinvest your money is not going to be hard at all.

What can you reinvest money in?

After deciding to use your earnings for the benefit and development of your site, where exactly are you going to ‘reinvest’ this money? Well, there are a number of ways you can improve your site with the use of your affiliate payments. One of the best ways to reinvest money is to buy some content from a solid player that writes poker articles. You can normally find someone who does ‘ghost writing’ on a forum if you do some searching around, and this extra content will help to expand your site and provide another point of entry from the search engines if you SEO the page well.

You can also use the money to buy some advertising on other poker websites. If you search around, you will notice that a number of poker sites offer advertising spots to other webmasters, where you can pay a certain amount per month to advertise depending on how popular the site is. This will help you to get more traffic and get your site recognised a little more in the big world of online poker websites. As a tip, search around for sites that will work best with your website banner on them. Always ask yourself “Would a person visiting this website be interested in clicking on a banner to visit my website?” If the answer is no, then you should shop around for something a little better.

Another way you could improve your site is to get some graphics or logos designed. Images are a great way to personalize your site, and make it stand out amongst the crowd if you can get a good designer to work for you. You will be surprised at how a good image in an article will help to break the page up a little and make your content look that little bit more interesting.

For those that have been making a steady income from affiliating for a while, how about using some of that money to start a new project? With the money you have coming in and the new knowledge you have about making websites, why not try making a new site in a different niche? If things don’t go to plan and you decide that you are not interested in running the extra site any more, you can always sell up the site and get your money back (or probably more). But the experience you gain from developing a new site is only ever going to be beneficial, there’s no two ways about it. A good point to remember is that it’s much easier to make $1000 from ten sites, than it is to make $1000 from one.

There are a number of other things that you can purchase for your site, but it always depends on your needs at the time. I for one have a little notepad file in the corner of my desktop listing all the things I am looking to buy when I get the money. These can sometimes be expensive, but at the end of the day I want to do what is best for my site, and I know that all the money that I put into my site is going to be returned to me many times over in the following months and years. So the next time you come across something that you feel would help with the development of your site, jot it down somewhere and think about it the next time you get your affiliate payment through.

Just remember, reinvest money for future success!
