Today I am presenting a 2nd interview today on the blog with Simon Peter who runs multiple online businesses, in this interview I asked him various questions about a gambling blog he runs.
Check out the interview:
- What got you interested in running a gambling blog? Share your story.
During my college years I desperately needed the money to fund my tuition.
I did not want to take out a hefty student loan and have that extra baggage for the next 10 – 25 years, but I ran out of money.
This is where I turned to online gambling. I intensively studied advantage gambling methods – the very same methods used by professional gamblers – .
After a lot of practice I managed to make a significant amount of money with a method called “casino whoring”.
I spent all the money I’ve earned on my college education and this allowed me to finish my studies debt-free.
To help other people, who wish to learn to make money gambling online, I have created the biggest collection of advantage gambling methods, which you can access on my gambling blog.
- How have you gone about marketing and attracting new visitors to your gambling blog?
Two years of hard work.
Before I quit my day job I was an online marketing professional working for one of the bigger online marketing agencies and we have worked with Fortune 500 companies.
I personally worked for 8 online casinos and 5 bitcoin casinos before I quit.
I will do not want to get into the details but let’s just say, that marketing a gambling blog is REALLY HARD work and takes a lot of time.
- What ways are you monetizing your site? What’s working for you?
I just have a few banner ads on my site.
Not too many, I hate ads just as much as the next guy.
I see them as a necessary evil.
If you have many visitors a few ads is enough.
- How do you stand out from others in your niche doing the same thing?
I simply do not lie. That’s it.
I’m doing this 100% ethically.
Most gambling blogs will tell you that:
- do this and win $ [x] ,
- buy my ebook of “secret winning strategies” and win every time
- or tell you that you can make money gambling without using advantage gambling methods
These are simply just lies. I tell it how it is. The full picture.
I concentrate on the mathematical aspects of gambling and advantage gambling methods and give real advice, I even have 3 house edge and return calculators (coded myself) on the website to help people.
- What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?”
I want to reach 100 K monthly unique visitors before the end of the year. Right now it1s 70 – 80 K per month, which is pretty good considering the niches I’ve chosen.
It will take a lot of work to get there, fingers crossed J.
