For many betting companies a well-tailored program is simply a matter of staying above the surface writes Jakub Myszkorowski, Chief Commercial Officer at STATSCORE.In times when everyone offers more or less the same to similar types of affiliates, will you follow the well-trodden and overused path, or try going your own way?If you are still with us, it means that you are at least eager to find out more about how to make your affiliate marketing more effective. You probably have tried everything and the results were not as satisfying as you wanted them to be. Hoping for the best but expecting the worst – we have all been there.How about trying something completely different and turning to a type of potential affiliates who are not yet recognized by the market? And we mean… yeap, unofficial football club websites. What the…?! – you could ask. I’m glad that you wish to learn. Unofficial club websites are one of the hottest pieces of cake at the market in terms of a targeted traffic for betting. Still they are surprisingly skipped by the biggest players, who seek their audience elsewhere. We speak about a great share of the market. Top clubs from the English Premier League (EPL) have hundreds of unofficial websites worldwide focused on local fans communities, while they can still have only one official site (even if it has several localizations and unique local content). Unofficial club websites target their communication at the biggest football club fans, who will seek for the updates anywhere. Instead of leaving them on their own, unofficial club websites gather all the desired info mixed with hot gossip and serve them on a daily basis. In many cases, they are far more attractive than the official websites, which remain more abstemious in communication and much more tied by the club PR policy. With their devoted audience, people are coming there every day – sometimes even a couple of times – while at work or while travelling. They, therefore, make a perfect choice to recruit more players to bet online. The unofficial club websites’ target group is made of folks who tend to believe that they know everything about sports and that their opinions are far better than any others. This makes them a dream group to focus your campaign and win some more regular users and – in turn – a higher level of income. Football fans who usually bet with heart, not with their analytical skills, are the ones that build a loyal group of bettors. So, how can you deliver these campaigns? Well, the more straightforward and openly you come at them, the higher the risk of scaring them off. Why not try something more sophisticated rather than just adding simple banners? STATSCORE came up with a dedicated platform for both official and unofficial websites. TeamCenter is a team-themed centre, which brings all the info about the upcoming games, past results, expanded stats, standings, comparisons and of course LIVE data. Each game is covered with a live tracker that provides dedicated animation for every key incident of the game. While these are all displayed on the playing surface alongside the tracking of the ball position, it secures the thrill of participation for the fans and keeps them involved. Since TeamCenter comes with several advertising spaces (including the bands in front of the pitch) and can include your betting odds, it has it all to drive more users to your website. It is a precious content for an unofficial club website and a great commercial opportunity for betting companies to strike affiliate partnerships. The first party gets, for free, a unique add-on to their site and a chance to earn some reasonable commission, while the latter secures greater access to their fanbase. It is a win-win situation.In the highly competitive market of betting, working with affiliates that allow you to differ from the closest competitors is not something to leave for the future, but a question worth answering right here, right now. So, why not start working with unofficial club websites and empower them with ready-made tools to drive an increased number of bets on your website?last_img read more

UEFA Champions League: Cristiano Ronaldo Scores as Juventus Brush Aside Bayer Leverkusen

first_imgTurin: Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal in this season’s Champions League, sealing a 3-0 win for Juventus over Bayer Leverkusen in their Group D game in Turin on Tuesday.Ronaldo blasted in the third goal in the 89th minute to extend his record to 127 strikes in the competition to add to Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi’s earlier efforts. Juventus move top of their section, level on four points with Atletico Madrid, who defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 in Russia.The Italian champions had been held 2-2 by the Spaniards at the Wanda Metropolitano in their opener.”We had a good match against a team who love possession and are not easy to deal with,” said Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.”They took a lot of energy out of us in the first half. After the break, they slowed down a little and we took control.”Leverkusen face an uphill battle after their shock 2-1 defeat at home against Lokomotiv Moscow and are rooted to the foot of the table.”It was a clear defeat,” said Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz. “We played well in the first half even if we didn’t have chances, and then we made the mistake which led to the first goal.”It’s the difference between a team who has experience in the Champions League and one that is beginning its journey at this level.”Juventus next host Lokomotiv and Leverkusen travel to Atletico on October 22.HIGUAIN BACKSarri opted for Higuain and Bernardeschi up front alongside five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo.Leverkusen were struggling from the outset after losing captain Lars Bender in the warm-up to a thigh problem, with defender Mitchell Weiser stepping in.The Germans showed little to threaten the hosts, with Lucas Alario shooting over on three minutes with what would be their best chance of the game.The breakthrough came for Juventus when Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah failed to head clear Juan Cuadrado’s long ball for Higuain, with the Argentine pouncing to drill home after 17 minutes.The 31-year-old Higuain, back in Turin after loan spells at AC Milan and Chelsea, had a chance for a second on 38 minutes but was denied by Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky.Juventus piled on the pressure after the break as Ronaldo tried unsuccessfully to pull off an overhead kick in the 55th minute.Ronaldo then sent Higuain in behind, but although the Portuguese failed to connect with his teammate’s return pass, Bernardeschi was lurking to provide the finishing touch just after an hour.Juventus almost had a third with Hradecky failing to control the ball and almost turning it into his own net before grappling to save on the line.But the Finnish international did well to deny Ronaldo in front of goal after a Higuain charge down the flank.Welsh international Aaron Ramsey was introduced in place of Bernardeschi with Dybala replacing Higuain for the closing stages.And in the dying minutes, substitute Rodrigo Bentancur picked out Dybala who slid the ball through for Ronaldo, allowing the 34-year-old to equal Real Madrid great Raul’s record of scoring against 33 different sides in the Champions League.”It was an important match, after the draw in Madrid we had to win to get closer to the qualification,” said Higuain.”Now we head to Sunday, because another battle awaits us,” added the Argentine of next weekend’s Serie A clash with leaders Inter Milan. atletico madridBayer Leverkusencristiano ronaldoJuventus First Published: October 2, 2019, 7:43 AM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

Football: CR7 fans look away! Woman accuses Juventus star of rape

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementControversy is the name of the game when Cristiano Ronaldo is involved. A Las Vegas woman, who goes by the name of Kathryn Myorga is challenging Ronaldo over a 2009 legal settlement in which the soccer superstar agreed to pay her $375,000 to keep silent over an alleged sexual assault.The accuser came forward Friday as the victim of the alleged incident. She spoke with German publication Der Spiegel and claimed that Ronaldo anally raped her at the Palms Place Hotel in Las Vegas.According to Reuters, Ronaldo has denied all of what his lawyers called “blatantly illegal” accusations and reportedly plans to sue Der Spiegel for “an inadmissible reporting of suspicions in the area of privacy.”Der Spiegel were the first to bring the existence of the settlement and the alleged incident to light last year, reporting Mayorga under the pseudonym Susan K.At the time of the alleged rape in 2009, Mayorga was reportedly 25 years old and met Ronaldo in the VIP section of a Las Vegas nightclub. CR7 was well in his prime and was closing in on a massive 80 million pounds transfer to Real Madrid. Mayorga claimed the following happened in a letter written during her legal battle and confirmed them with Der Spiegel on Friday:In the letter that she wrote to Ronaldo, K. describes what happened later that night of partying. She writes that she gave him her number. That he called her later and invited her to a party. Afterward, they went to his penthouse. When K. arrived together with a girlfriend, she writes that Ronaldo and his friends climbed into the Jacuzzi. And that he offered her swimwear. She claims that he followed her as she went to change, and that the two kissed. But K. writes that this wasn’t enough for Ronaldo. She writes that she wanted to go back to the others. She continues that he took her and put her on the bed. That she used both hands as she attempted to protect herself. “I screamed NO NO NO NO NO NOOOO over and over I begged you to stop. I was never so scared in my life,” K. writes in the letter.After it was over, Ronaldo allegedly turned to her again and supposedly said 99 percent of the time he was a good guy, but that he doesn’t know what happened to that 1 percent. That’s what K. writes in her letter.Mayorga said she has since faced emotional trauma from the incident, a common occurrence with sexual assaults.“I’ve had like these serious breakdowns,” she told the magazine. “And again, blaming of the rape. And I blame him, and I blame myself for signing that thing.”Read the full story by clicking here.Read Also: You WILL NOT believe how many goals the number 7s at United have scored after CR7 leftlast_img read more
