Affiliate Success wit Chris from SlotsJack.com

In this weeks affiliate interview you can get to know Chris from SlotsJack.com, a fresh slots startup providing comprehensive and detailed guides on everything from planning a casino vacation to comparing games!

Name: Chris Bibey
Age: 34
Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Living in: Pittsburgh
Favorite Food: Spaghetti
Must Read Book: The 4-Hour Workweek
Profession/Job title: Internet Marketing Consultant

GAV: Tell us a bit about yourself, we want to know who Chris Bibey really is, the person behind the SlotsJack startup. Where were you born? What was the main idea of developing this great online slots and casino platform?

Chris: In short, I was born in the United States and never had much of an interest in casino games until I turned 21. At that point, I took my first trip to Las Vegas. Within a matter of days, I realized that I wanted to be involved in the gaming industry in some way, shape, or form.
After working with several high level brands and affiliates for 5+ years, I decided to branch out on my own to create SlotsJack.com.

The main idea behind the site is simple:
• To provide high quality reviews of slot machine games and casinos. Before writing any piece of content, I see what else is out there. From there, I go above and beyond to ensure that the review provides greater depth and higher quality information.

GAV: Since there are thousands of websites in your niche out there, where do you think Slotsjack.com stands now?

Chris: Right now, SlotsJack is in its infancy. However, we have laid out a plan for robust growth over the next 12 months.
Most importantly, feedback from visitors has been great. They love the depth of the content and the honest approach.
As you know, there are thousands of websites that provide casino related content, however, a lot of it is short, full of fluff, and meant to do nothing more than drive conversions for affiliates. We take a different approach: the player always comes first. SlotsJack.com

GAV: What are the strong points of Slotsjack.com and what makes it stand out from the other websites/platforms?

Chris: There are several things that allow SlotsJack to stand out from the crowd:
• We make sure every review provides more information than what else is out there. So, if we’re writing a review and the top results show an average of 700 words, we’ll go much deeper by providing 1k+ words on the game or casino.
• Honesty! Let’s face it, not every slot machine is worth playing. We do our best to provide honest reviews, as that is what people want.

GAV: How did you start and what bumps did you have to overcome?

Chris: Due to my years of experience in the field, getting started was pretty simple. That being said, there are a few challenges in the way.
Primarily, competition is stiff in regards to generating search engine traffic. That being said, we’re doing what Google wants: providing nothing but high quality, targeted, unique advice.
With each passing month, SlotsJack traffic continues to grow, thanks to search engine rankings that continue to climb.

GAV: We have browsed your website and found some quality content. Are you writing it by yourself or you have a team writing for you? How many casino reviews do you have on your website?

Chris: This is a great question. Right now, I am the only person writing the content. And to be honest, things will probably stay this way for quite some time. For many years, I’ve been a writer, providing top brands in many spaces with high quality content. So, for this reason, I actually enjoy cranking out content on a daily basis.
Right now, there are about 200 pages on the site, which includes game reviews, casino reviews, and in-depth gaming guides.

GAV: Is it hard for you to keep the content fresh and relevant on your website, when a lot of fluff and nonsense appear on the Internet on a daily basis?

Chris: It really isn’t, to be honest. From our perspective, content is king. We know that this is the most important thing to our success, and that’s why I have no problem devoting the necessary amount of time to this task.
As noted earlier, there is a lot of fluff out there. This is why we review every piece of competing content before starting to write.

GAV: We are pretty sure that you receive messages from Affiliate Managers on a daily basis showcasing their best products. What are your thoughts on how Affiliate Manager-Affiliate relationships should be built?

Chris: Once again, it’s all about an open and honest relationship. Through my experience, as long as both parties are getting what they want, as long as both parties are on the same page from the start, things typically work out.

GAV: How do you see the future of the online casino and land based casino industry? For instance, will it become a truly global phenomenon?

Chris: This is a difficult question to answer, as a few key markets hold a lot of the power right now.
For example, will the United States legalize online gambling at some point in the near future? If so, I think we can expect an explosion in popularity.

GAV: Tell us one change that you want to see in the casino affiliate world?!

Chris: As you know, there are quite a few “shady” operations out there. I wish everyone would have a bit more respect for each other. This includes site operators, affiliates, and casinos.
If everyone worked together, as opposed to sometimes against one another, the industry would be much better off in the long run.

GAV: Do you have any advice that you would like to offer to newbies who are looking to venture into this great industry!?

Chris: My one bit of advice is this: find something you are passionate about and then start slow.
It’s easy to burn out in this space, as there is so much going on around you. There’s no reason to be in a big hurry. Sure, you want to generate revenue as quickly as possible, but it will come soon enough if you take the right approach.

GAV: Do you attend any iGaming or casino conferences? If so, which one is your favorite and what is your most fun experience?

Chris: To be honest, I haven’t attended any iGaming conferences in the past. I’ve spent some time at general affiliate conferences, with these always providing a great opportunity to connect with others.

GAV: What do you think the chances are for Eastern Europe on becoming a potential gaming hotspot in the future? Where do you think the region must improve upon?

Chris: In regards to the next gaming hotspot, I definitely think Eastern Europe is in position to succeed at a high level. As noted earlier, there are other regions, such as the US, that are also in position to take advantage of industry growth.

GAV: Do you have a favorite celebrity?

Chris: I’m not big into movies or anything like that, but I’ve been a huge Jim Carrey fan for many years.

GAV: Where would you like to travel in Eastern Europe?

Chris: Being that one of my clients is located in Bulgaria, I would love to spend some time there in the near future. In fact, it’s been on my radar for quite some time!

GAV: Where you wouldn’t want to travel in Eastern Europe?

Chris: To be honest, I’m the type who would try anything once when it comes to traveling. SO, for that reason, there is no region off limits!

GAV: What is your opinion about The Gambling Affiliate Voice (GamblingAffiliateVoice.com)?

Chris: I truly enjoy the type of content that is published on a regular basis, such as the news stories. This gives me the opportunity to stay current with the industry, without having to jump from one source to the next. Keep up the good work!

GAV: Thanks for your time and answers Chris, we  appreciate it, all the best to you and if you have any newsworthy updates feel free to contact us!

Bojoko crowned Affiliate of the Year at EGR Nordic Awards

 

Popular online casino listing site fends off stiff competition to take home the trophy at prestigious awards ceremony

 The Bojoko team is celebrating once again after being named Affiliate of the Year at the prestigious EGR Nordic Awards 2021.

This is the second EGR award that Bojoko has taken home after being crowned Casino Affiliate of the Year at the hotly contested EGR Operator Awards 2020.

Bojoko fought off stiff competition from some of the biggest names in the affiliate industry including AskGamblers, Better Collective, Blexr, Catena Media and the Gambling.com Group.

EGR judges said it had been “another excellent year” for Bojoko and that its SEO performance and overall conversion “really shines”.

The EGR judges added: “A more unique idea than most affiliates with great growth and sustainability. A very clever and new type of affiliate that is showing great success. Well done!”

Bojoko allows online casino operators and game developers in the Nordics to create their own dedicated listing page and tell their story through their own words, images and videos.

Joonas Karhu, Chief Business Officer at Bojoko.com, said: “We will need to find more space for our trophies after scooping our second EGR award in as many months but seriously, the entire team is thrilled how have been recognised for our work in the Nordics.

“The Nordics remain a key focus for us and we see plenty of opportunity to drive growth from the region by providing players with our award-winning online casino listing product and service.

“Our mission from day one has been to help players quickly and easily select online casinos through transparency and community feedback and it is a concept that has proved to be hugely popular.

“I would like to thank the EGR judges for recognising our efforts and successes in the Nordics by crowning Bojoko Affiliate of the Year 2021.”
