ThePOGG Network launches POGGWebmasters.com

Published

on

thepoggThePOGG.com Network has just launched its 3rd property, POGGWebmasters.com. Over the last 4 years ThePOGG.com has established a strong reputation for their thorough and professional approach to the management of player complaints, recently becoming the only affiliate model operation to receive Accreditation from the UKGC as an Alternative Dispute Resolution service. POGGWebmasters has been set up to extend this complaint service to affiliates.

ThePOGG.com has done a great job of establishing itself as a very credible mediation and review service within the remote gambling sector. So much so that we became aware via forum posts and private communications that a significant number of affiliates were checking with our operator reviews on ThePOGG before selecting which program to work with. As time has passed we started to feel that there was a distinct gap within the marketplace for a resource that allowed affiliates to see at a glance how affiliate programs treated both affiliates AND players and another big gap in terms of a service where affiliates could gain help if they’d been mistreated. POGGWebmasters is our answer to these gaps.
Affiliate Complaint Service offered for Free

POGGWebmasters is the first site to offer a dedicated affiliate complaint service. Building on their success and experience running ThePOGG.com’s player complaints service, POGGWebmasters provides a full complaints infrastructure to allow affiliates to submit a complaint, the complaint to be managed in the private manner which ThePOGG.com has demonstrated is most conducive to a positive resolution and finally a complaint report to be published to allow other affiliates to see the nature of the complaint, how it was managed and the actions that have ultimately been taken to remedy the situation.

 

Detailed Affiliate Program Reviews

pogg

Alongside the management of affiliate complaints full reviews have been posted of over 250 affiliate programs, with another 100 programs to be added in the coming weeks. These reviews focus on providing quality information to affiliates, presenting a breakdown of the terms and conditions offered to the affiliate – highlighting both positive and negative terms that affiliates should be aware of – and an assessment of the reputation of the programs with respect to their treatment of both players and affiliates.
Paid for Placement Model Rejected
POGGWebmasters is also the first affiliate community to reject the ‘paid for placement’ model for operators. To ensure that affiliate complaints are always managed with appropriate impartiality and that POGGWebmasters is free to take whatever actions they deem appropriate without restriction the site will not tie itself into ‘sponsorship’ type agreements. As such, instead of paying to receive premium advertising positions, featured program positions will be given to those programs that maintain an active representative within ThePOGG forum, contributing and improving the community and resources available to both players and affiliates.

POGGWebmasters aims to cover all types of gambling affiliate programs and for launch the majority of reviews tend to cover casino, sportsbetting and bingo and more will be added to cover lottery and poker. Out of about 300 affiliate programs reviewed upon launch, only about 50 have made the grade for being recommended.

 

 

 

Affiliates will also be able to gain links by posting on ThePOGG Network’s message boards, which will be significantly updated in the coming weeks. Three levels of Affiliate Membership have been set up allowing those affiliates that choose to work with stronger status programs to more easily gain rewards and incentives. Only affiliates choosing to work with Blacklisted programs will be entirely restricted from receiving links (and submitting complaints).

The driving purpose of POGGWebmasters is to help affiliates make more responsible choices in whom they choose to work with, both for themselves in terms of ability to earn money and for the players they send to the various operations they work with.

The launch of POGGWebmasters completes over a year of preparation that has seen ThePOGG Network extend its coverage of the gambling markets to include casino game strategies (POGGStrategies.com) and Affiliate Program reviews. The high quality information and wide coverage of various topics within the marketplace has turned ThePOGG Network into one of the most useful industry resources on the market today.

Some of the standout features of the site include a UKGC Accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service for player complaints and player terms and conditions monitoring.

Chris Russell, CEO of Thimba said: “The acquisition of The Slot Buzz is an important strategic deal for us from the perspective that we view ourselves as a contrarian investor. When many affiliates are looking solely at the US market for acquisitions, we are looking at value markets where there is strong regulation and rule of law to govern our business stability in the coming years.”

With its strong brand and community of Slots Players, theslotbuzz.com is a perfect addition to our business. We see the step as a strengthening of our commitment to locally regulated markets globally. Our next step for this asset is to grow it from a UK facing brand to a brand which focuses on locally regulated English speaking markets including the ever-regulating US market.

Mark Wadie, of site owner’s Helicon One Digital Ltd, said “We are excited to be completing this sale with Thimba Media which is testament to our hard work and dedication. The Slot Buzz has achieved fantastic growth in the UK and becomes part of a company with a history of successfully growing affiliate sites across the regulated global market. We now look forward to continuing our own journey as we enter the North American markets with our new site, The Casino Heat.” (thecasinoheat.ca)
