Better Collective named Affiliate of the Year at the SBC Awards 2017

Sports Betting Community rewarded Better Collective with their premier affiliate award

 

Better Collective, the world’s leading developer of digital platforms for bookmaker information, iGaming communities, and betting tips, secured the title of Affiliate of the Year 2017 at the annual SBC Awards. Better Collective is no stranger to the SBC Awards, with their odds comparison platform, SmartBets, picking up the Best New Affiliate Product at last year’s event.

Earlier this award season, Better Collective also picked up the award for Casino Affiliate of the Year at the EGR Operator awards—commending them for their position in the casino sphere. Now, with SBC (Sports Betting Community) recognising their position as an affiliate, the true spectrum of Better Collective’s strength as an all-round affiliate (both sports betting and casino) is on full display.

Better Collective was also shortlisted this year for another Best New Affiliate Product award with their new innovation, BetBehind, which, in its beta phase, was not ready to take home the big prize.

Jesper Søgaard, CEO at Better Collective: “We are very proud to receive this acclamation from SBC. With their earned position of being thought leaders within the sports betting industry and community, it is truly an honour to be recognised by them for our achievements in sports betting. A big thanks to them, and a big thanks to our dedicated team who continue to develop products such as bettingexpert.com, SmartBets, and countless other sports betting platforms that are educating new users every single day.

We’d also like to congratulate LADBible Group for taking home the award for Best New Affiliate Product. We had hoped that BetBehind could have made a photo-finish, but as it was strictly in its ‘user by invitation only’ phase, we respect SBC’s final decision. However, I’m sure that BetBehind’s fully launched version will be a stronger contender next year.

Delegates who attend this month’s event will also benefit from an exclusive 30- minute MasterClass training on how to use content marketing to generate more leads for their website or business delivered by Ms. Kabani.

In addition to this, a collaboration with leading AI and Machine learning technology provider, Publisher Discovery has been secured.

Lee-Ann Johnstone said: ” This event has been curated to help my community get better connected during these uncertain times on a personal level. I really want to support affiliates and digital marketers to get access to expert insight, be able to collaborate with one another  and help support new business development at the same time. I’ve partnered with UGenie.io and the Publisher Discovery team to help make that achievable at this month’s networking event.”

Digital Marketing Mixer to be hosted for second iteration of FREE business networking on 30th June

Digital Marketing Mixer to be hosted for second iteration of FREE business networking on 30th June

 

 

Last month saw the launch of the first Digital Marketing Mixer, a FREE business networking event created by Lee-Ann Johnstone which hosted over 150+ iGaming and Affiliate Marketing professionals in attendance.

The event which received outstanding delegate reviews, will be hosted again on Monday 30th June between 4-6pm (BST) via Zoom. The aim of the speed networking event is to bring together affiliates and digital marketers, technology providers , agencies, experts and marketing service providers together to promote their services virtually.

With limits on travel and attendance at physical events still in play opportunities to network for new business have been limited. That combined with increased remote working has had a natural impact on business development slowing in the short term.

The Digital Marketing Mixer has been created as an open platform for professional social networking to take place in a structured but relaxed virtual atmosphere. The event has been created to support new business and continued lead generation for all businesses operating in the Affiliate industry.

Lee-Ann Johnstone, the event host commented: “The Digital Marketing Mixer is a key event for digital and affiliate marketing businesses to get better connected during this uncertain time. The objective is simple, bring people together to talk, to collaborate and ensure new business and service opportunities continue to thrive. I’ve created this FREE networking event for EVERYONE to benefit from in the affiliate industry to help get new business deals done.”

The mixer remains 100% FREE for delegates to attend and is open to any vertical. Once again the event is held in collaboration with founding collaborators GPWA.org, iBet Directory, and AffiliateINSIDER collaborating to deliver this event.

“The toughest part of the conference experience to replicate online was always going to be those oh-so-important conversations in the bar. I was delighted to find myself in just such conversations at the Digital Marketing Mixer – top marks! “  said Sue Dawson from bestnewbingosites.co.uk who attended last month’s inaugural event. 

The Digital Marketing Mixer will offer a host of  fun networking games, speed selling challenges and enable delegates to enjoy discussing the latest industry trends whilst providing a platform to market their goods and services. The focus of this event remains on getting digital and affiliate marketing professionals quickly connected, getting new deals – done!

Lloyd Richman, founder of iBet Directory commented: The Digital Marketing Mixer Party is a great concept and offers all delegates the option to contribute unlike other webinars and conferences. It had a good mixture of natural event speakers, experienced iGaming professionals and new people to the industry. A great event which was highly successful.

If you are an agency, affiliate, consultant, operator, digital marketer, payment provider or saas product owner, everyone working with or in the affiliate industry is welcome to attend.
