Why Blogging About Real Money Gaming is a Good Idea

Published

on

Most people prefer to blog about highly popular topics, like technology, video games, celebrities, and such. But these topics are often over-represented, and in some cases don’t attract the audiences you might be after. When starting a blog in any niche, you need to think about why you are blogging in the first place, how you can provide value and of course how to make a little bit of money in the process.

In this article we are going to discuss why and how a gaming blog might be a great opportunity for you to explore. Of all the different industries out there, real money gaming is one that never changes with the economy or events in time. Someone is always turning of level age to gamble every day, and it’s something that people like to do in their free time.

According to Statista, the online gaming industry generates of $40 billion dollars every year!

At the same time, the gaming industry is one of the most lucrative markets out there — which some affiliate programs paying up to $300 for a verified new player. Some sites will pay out on a rev-share basis as well, sometimes in the 30% range of all money wagered/lost.

As you can see, this can be quite the opportunity if your site has great content and can get in front of the right audience. While it may seem like a world of glitz and glamour, the truth is that the competition is tight and finding success with a gaming resource blog of your own won’t be easy — but then again, nothing worth doing is!

Now let’s cover some of the best practices when attempting to launch a real money gaming blog resource of your own.

Decide What Type of Content to Create

The real money gaming industry is constantly growing, thanks to its increasing reach and popularity. If the gaming market was dominated by a handful of veteran developers a few years ago, today we have an ever growing number of studios releasing new games every month.

With that being said, there are plenty of opportunities for starting a resource blog and providing your audience with the content they are looking for. To help with this process, we can look at look at almost any online gaming see to see what type of content is on their site, then how we can swing that int a resource of our own.

Just for example sake, let’s take a look at the Royal Vegas site below.

The Royal Vegas, one of the veteran gaming destinations of the industry, adds at least one new game to its library each month, aside from its ever changing promotions and specials that you can cover. And the Royal Vegas is just one of the hundreds of similar gaming portals that you can keep an eye on month after month.

Right away we can see that the majority of their games and attention are on slot machines — an easy game everyone like to play, usually because their is no learning involved. However, other games like blackjack, craps and roulette do take some time to learn. Millions of people are searching for information and videos online for how to play these games. This is a great opportunity for site owners and bloggers to create quick videos and learning guides on how to play such games.

When it comes to creating original content and training guides, there really is no limit — especially with all of the unique games being offered through various playing sites.

Finding the Right Audience

Unlike tech news and celebrity gossip, real money gaming related blogs will attract either an initiated audience or one that’s interested in what you have to say. You won’t have to tell them to join Royal Vegas for awesome online casino games since they will most likely already be a member at one – or more – similar gaming outlets.

Even though real money gaming offers can be targeted to general audiences and still convert fairly well, it would be more effective to go after long tail keywords and create content based on your audiences needs. Again, this goes back to creating gaming players guides and resources as well. Keyword and search phrases like “how to win at craps” and “best online gaming deposit bonuses” are searched all the time, while also being very targeted.

Converting Your Audience in Real Advertising Dollars

Depending on what country you currently live in, you may be limited on the ways you can promote and earn money from online gaming sites. While the United States still has many limitations in place, it’s still one of the biggest contributors to online gaming and revenue. Targeting audience in Europe also offers up huge opportunity.

No matter where you live or the audience you are targeting, trust is always of the utmost importance. When providing your audience with a list of recommended sites to play on and deposit money, you are going to want to make sure they are all legit and verified.

Before recommending a gaming site to your audience, it’s a good idea to see how they are rated on other top sites. Casino.org is a top gaming rating site. You can see how their ratings look for different trusted gaming sites look like below. This is a great type of resource for anyone looking to build out their own comparison sites and reviews.

Providing your own personal reviews and ratings on different gaming sites is a great way to provide original content and value to your audience. At the same time it will also allow you to potentially earn commissions from multiple gaming sites as well.

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, gaming sites are paying upwards of $150-$300 per new customer who makes a deposit into their account.

The best converting gaming resource sites seem to be online comparison sites — those which list the best promotions and comparisons of what games are available through their recommended sites.

No matter what method you choose for content and promotion, always keep in mind that quality content is going to win at the end of the day. If you want to stand above the crowd and refer high-quality players to gaming sites, make sure you have quality content that your audience finds value in and trusts.

1 Freeing but Sobering New Blogger Realization

10 Disastrous Mistakes Newbie Bloggers Make and How to Fix Them

I think through a common blogging error.  This error is so common that it cripples most bloggers. New bloggers especially. What is the mistake?

 New bloggers believe blogging is easy, comfortable, and requires a little work, AND you will quickly and easily make money through blogging. New bloggers expect to make money, like if they worked a job.

Sobering

 Have you sobered up yet as a new blogger? I woke up big-time many years ago. I learn blogging requires study, work and not getting paid for months. Imagine that? You blog and help people everyday for months of your life and see not a penny in earnings. Most human beings panic and quit. Most struggle with this idea.  We are all conditioned to expect a pay day after work. Most of us have been employees. Work everyday for 8 hours. Get a paycheck on Thursday. Logical. It makes sense. But blogging is different. Work everyday, sometimes seven days weekly, generously. You may not see a payday for 5 months. But you proceed. This is the wake-up call. Quite sobering. Most bloggers did not visualize blogging going like this. But there is a freeing element that leads to stunning blogging success over the long haul.

Freeing

 Ah yes, the freeing part. Letting go outcomes literally lifts an energetic weight from your mind. How does it feel to do something with zero expectations? Awesome! The work becomes the reward. Everything else like traffic, profits, and other forms of success feel like an extra. Or maybe like a bonus. Or like icing on the cake. Or like a cherry on top. This feels really good. Expectation can be a heavy burden. But if you blog for the fun and love of blogging, you position yourself to be stunningly successful over the long-term.

 Every seven figure earner I know worked generously for free for many months or even years of their lives before making millions of dollars through blogging. You have to. Working for free improves your skills and exposure. Skilled bloggers with massive exposure who open multiple streams of income make a lot of money. Simple process. But highly uncomfortable.

 See the journey through. Be generous. Sober up, and embrace this freeing concept of blogging. Give freely. Receive easily. Let go expectations. Make the work, the reward. Embracing this lesson as a new blogger puts you well ahead of the herd. Plus you will avoid so many struggles too. 

I had to learn this lesson the hard way over very many years. Plus I saw some success, then sprinted back to my old, struggling, failed ways of thinking based on outcomes, for years. Now I just help people generously and release expectations. Serving people feels good. I’ve sobered up enough. Now I am largely free from expectations, I just help people all day long. As my presence and skills expand, success finds me. But only because I freed myself from outcomes and focused on the process.

 Be generous. Surround yourself with pro bloggers as a newbie. Learn from these established bloggers. Follow their example. Be generous. Be genuine. Expect little or nothing. Have fun helping people and your blogging star will shine brightly.

What Is a Blogging Tribe?

Published

on

Much talk has been bandied about blogging tribes over the years. People like myself say you need a tribe to succeed. This is true. But you may be confused. What is a blogging tribe?

 Today we will break down the definition to help you understand what goes into building a large, loyal, loving blogging tribe.

 So….. What is a blogging tribe? Basically, a blogging tribe is a group of loyal, loving readers who follow your blog posts, read your blog posts, promote your blog posts, and grow your business. Tribemates are friends and fans who read your blog and spread your word. Tribemates also hire you and buy your stuff. Simple definition, right guys?

 Tribes can be fans. Tribes can be friends. Doesn’t matter. The main point to keep in mind is that growing a tribe requires persistent, generous effort every single day on your part. Tribes do not grow organically unless you help people for free. Please impress that idea on your mind. You grow your tribe. Then as you grow your tribe, your tribe grows itself, as you tend to your tribe.

Help People for Free

 I comment genuinely on blogs to add value to posts and to make friends. Friends I find through this strategy join my tribe. I publish a genuine, generous comment on a blog. My fellow bloggers appreciate the comment and comment on my blog. Said blogger tends to share my post on social media. Sometimes, the blogger mentions me on their blog. In other cases, a blogger asked me to guest post on their blog. My tribe just grew by one member. But I also became a member of their tribe by supporting their blog.

 If you want to build a tribe, become a member of other blogger’s tribes. Promote other bloggers. Comment on other blogs. Give whatever you want. Doesn’t that formula just makes sense?

 Help people for free. Make friends. Attract your blogging tribe by embodying the concept of being generous.

Be Persistent

 Be persistent. Being generous for one day or even one week will not cut it. You need to be generous every day for months to slowly, steadily and organically grow your blogging tribe. Grow on people by being helpful. Publish valuable content to give tribemates a reason to follow you. 

Stay on Topic

Stay on topic. People love specialists. Generalists? Not so much. Every time you change topics you confuse tribe members who expect you to cover a single topic. Avoid doing this. Cover one topic every post to slowly and steadily grow your blogging tribe.

Invest in a Resource

 Buy my tribe building ebook to have a resource handy. Invest money in a system that helps you grow your traffic and profits freely thru tribe-building.  I wrote the ebook to cut through any confusion often seen on Triberr. Bloggers join and wonder how in the heck the site works? I lay out 13 practical, simple tips to follow to drive by traffic through the network and to grow your blogging tribe through Triberr.

Tribe-Building Takes Time

 Building a tribe takes time, patience, persistence and generous effort. Do not rush things. Do not force things. Allow your tribe to go organically over time.  People will follow your blog if you stay on topic, solve their problems and spend a good deal of time off site building friendships. Large, loyal, loving tribes do not grow overnight. See the journey through to build your own loyal, loving tribe and to accelerate your blogging success.

Engage Tribe Mates

Engage tribemates regularly to strengthen bonds. This was one of my mistakes during struggling years. I ignored people who loved what I did and those people disappeared. Lesson learned. Now I answer my tribemate’s questions regularly via email and social media. I thank people who buy my eBooks and courses. I also promote these rocking bloggers if they happen to be skilled bloggers, to strengthen our bond. Keep going back to where you are loved. This is the easiest way to grow loyalty, to strengthen bonds and to grow your tribe.

Should You Use AdSense on Your Blog?

Published

on

I admit it. I have waffled on this topic a few times. Back in the day I used to call it Ad Cents. But going forward I do see benefits in adding Google AdSense as a low ticket income stream on your blog. Even for newbies. I know, I know. This seems surprising to you.

Think Abundantly

 Think abundance guys. Why not add a few cents here and there to boost your income stream? Please don’t use AdSense as your prime means of income as a new blogger or if you are struggling as a blogging veteran. Cents do not make up a full-time income, as your sole income stream. But if you create courses, coach, and add Google AdSense as an income stream for driving a few bucks each month in the beginning, you are well on your way to seeing steady profits are the channel.

Detachment

 The key is to think detachment. New bloggers in many developing nations see Google AdSense as the Holy Grail of monetizing. Why? Mostly, because it seems easy to make money through a channel involving no creation or human interaction on your part. Think about it. All you do is post the ad and create content. Money should flow to you easily, right? The ultimate wake up call is experiencing one, two, or three cent AdSense months. Then you realize big earnings flow through blogs with a huge amount of targeted, hyper-focused traffic. This is why you need to detach from Google AdSense as your prime income stream. Big bucks flow through the channel after years of generous, patient, persistent effort on your part.

Take the Cents with AdSense

 As a newbie, pennies will flow through your AdSense profits for your first few months. In most cases. But take the cents because cents add up to dollars. Dollars add up to hundreds of dollars. Hundreds of dollars add up to thousands of dollars. Think like an abundant blogger. Keep adding small ticket and big ticket income streams to boost your overall blogging income.

Everything Adds Up

 I wrote a post recently discussing why wealthy bloggers take the time and effort to add affiliate links even if they earn pennies on the link. Between their ever-expanding presence and abundance mindset, the pennies add up to thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars over the long haul. Think this way with AdSense. Everything adds up. Again, just don’t make Google AdSense your prime income stream because as the pennies add up you’re better off earning more money through channels like coaching, consulting, freelancing, writing and selling eBooks or creating and publishing courses.

Remember This

Ultimately, successful blogging is creating and connecting generously. Never believe that an income stream makes money. Income streams are passive, completely subject to your command, and pretty much worthless on their own. An income stream cannot do anything, including make money. You make the money with your generous effort. Practice writing, create helpful content and build meaningful connections with top blogger generously every single day over the course of years. No matter the income streams you open, your blogging profits will increase over time if you stick to the fundamentals.
