We’ll tell you what kind of service a good poker affiliate should offer
In the year 2018 there are numerous poker affiliates in many different languages. But who thinks that all affiliates are the same, work the same and also have the same offers, is very wrong. The basic principle remains of course the same.
An affiliate site works with different poker sites together and receives from them a commission for the acquisition of new customers. The commissions are of course quite different, since a lot of factors play a role here. But we do not want to talk about this topic. The goal of this article is to explain what you should expect as a player from a good affiliate.
A rakeback deal is part of the basic equipment of a good poker affiliate. Here we should mention that actually all the sites you find on the internet offer various rakeback deals, which are very different in value. Big poker affiliates like YourPokerDream of course have the opportunity to offer much better deals than other smaller sites. We can proudly say that we can offer you the highest possible rakeback deal on any poker network and poker room.
We also offer special personal rakeback deals that are tailored to your style and volume. If you are interested in such a deal, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at [email protected] or Skype at vip-yourpokerdream.
Different kind of promotions
To offer only rakeback deals is not enough. A good poker affiliate should have a wide range that is tailored to all sorts of players. The professional grinders are clearly looking for the highest rakeback deals, but players who just play sometimes a bit for fun and have not such a big bankroll, are looking for other kinds of promotions.
Very popular are freeroll tournaments. These tournaments are especially for poker beginners and for poker players who do not have such a big bankroll and would be happy to get a bit extra money. Good poker affiliates run exclusive and private tournaments where you can play for real money without to invest any money. YourPokerDream offers every week several freeroll tournaments at some of our partner rooms.
Another important point is the different types of extra promotions which motivate players to play more and to earn some extra cash. There exist many different possibilities. YourPokerDream for example offers every month different rake races, rake chases and other promotions worth over € 100,000.
Of course, customer service should also play a major role. As a player you should feel safe and know that you always have a qualified contact person who helps you with any questions. It does not matter if it’s about rakeback, various promotions, the question of choosing the right poker room or anything else.
An important point is also the communication between the poker room and the player. It may happen that there are misunderstandings between a operator and the player. If this is the case, then it is the part of the affiliate to be also in touch with the poker site and help to solve this case. That’s exactly what YPD does. We maintain a very good relationship with all our partners and are therefore very happy to help, if there should be problems or misunderstandings.
It is also important that the support team of an affiliate is relatively quickly reachable, even on weekends or public holidays. YourPokerDream offers a 24/7 support in German and English. All emails will be answered within 24 hours, usually it takes only 1-2 hours. Via Skype we even offer a 24/7 live support.
Fast Payments/Transparency Honest Reporting
As a player you often play a whole month to get some extra money through a Rake Race/Rake Chase or other promotions. It goes without saying that the affiliate should ensure that all prizes are paid to all players as fast as possible. The same applies to special rakeback deals.
All information regarding player points, promotions and payments should be always transparent and up to date.
And another very important point is honest reporting and open communication with all players. Of course, this business is about money, but the safety and satisfaction of the players has to come first. A poker affiliate must always stand up for the player and test all partners for seriousness, quality and other factors. Should anything become worse or not be as it should, it is the duty of the affiliate to inform its players and to communicate openly and honestly about it. The financial interests of the affiliate should never be in the foreground, so that knowingly information or negative aspects about a poker room may be kept secret.
YourPokerDream takes this point very seriously, and it would not be the first time we stop working with a poker site if things are not going as it should.
As mentioned at the beginning, there exist a lot of poker affiliates on the net. Seek out the best for yourself, where you have the best feeling and which meets your needs.
Should your choice fall on YourPokerDream, we are of course pleased and will do our best to fulfill all your wishes and expectations.
