Sometimes in affiliate marketing and in life, you run into things that make no sense.

Now, sometimes there is an actually good explanation.

But sometimes, things are just totally beyond comprehension.

I like things of the latter sort.

Affiliate News Takeaways

About a month ago (in our Parimatch affiliate program review edition), we promised you we’d bring you a little roundup of the affiliate opportunities coming up in this year’s Olympic Games.

Now, before we get to the BIG opportunity, let’s get one thing straight.

Don’t go trying to capitalize on the whole Olympic fever thing with this year’s host nation — France.

Apparently, Only about 23% of the population has any positive sentiments towards the games. As for the other 77%, about half of them are “indifferent” about the games (40% of people surveyed). And the other half would prefer to see the whole shebang go up in a bang.

Actually, I probably shouldn’t make jokes about it going up in a bang.

Apparently, ISIS is threatening to do just that.

But, you get the point. Almost half of France hates that the Olympics would come to their country. Which is kinda funny since becoming a host is a massive effort. Or it just means paying big bribes.

Either way, it takes work and/or “investments” to become a host, so it’s weird to turn your nose up at it when you get it.

French pessimism at its finest, I guess.

Or maybe it’s got something to do with Macron spending 1.4 billion eurobucks so he could go for a dip in the Seine (Paris’s waste dump of a river).

And the result of that? Still not safe for swimming.

Anyway, that’s the French.

As for the rest of the world, they’re a little more amped up.

In fact, according to International Olympic Committee (IOC) propaganda, the Olympics are the “most appealing sports and entertainment event” in the world. Apparently they’re especially popular with younger generations who value the games’ “inclusive, equality and fair play.”

Anyway, point is, the popularity is a good thing for us because that creates an opportunity that’s going to explode.

Wanna know what that opportunity is?

Here, let me give you a hint.

Scroll up four memes. You know, the one with our friendly Eiffel Tower sightseeing tourist.

See the T-shirt he’s wearing?

I’m pretty sure that’s a Betano t-shirt.

Clearly, even ISIS is pumped up about sports betting on the Olympics.

See, told you it was about to explode.

Just kidding.

On a more serious note, the Olympics will be another one of those big opportunities where a massive influx of new bettors suddenly appears.

And that means, it’s one of the best opportunities to push new bettors towards a sportsbook of your choice.

And we’re not just talking about a small handful either.

The Olympics are, quite literally, one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Maybe not as big as the World Cup. But it is (according to one source) the fifth most-watched sporting event in the world.

But I suspect it might rank a little higher.

The source that ranks it 5th also says the Olympics have about 2 billion people tune in to watch some of the games.

Meanwhile, Statista reckons that number’s more like 3 billion.

Maybe our friends at roadtrips dot com confused the summer and winter versions — the Winter Olympics did, indeed, get 2 billion viewers according to the IOC itself. Two billion viewers who racked up an impressive 12 billion hours of watch time. (That’s an average of 6 hours per person.)

Anyway, whatever the Summer Olympics viewership may be, billions of people are billions of people. I mean, what’s a billion between friends eh? It’s more traffic than your WordPress blog’s ever gonna be able to handle.

And the best part is those 2 billion people will bet in the worst, most amateurish way possible.

They’ll be placing “patriotic” bets.

That’s great news for you, since most sportsbooks will pay you based on net revenue.

And it’s even better news for you since the IOC publishes medal tables from past Olympic games.

Basically, don’t promote in the US, China, Japan, the UK, or Russia.

Especially not Russia.

And by Russia, I actually mean “Individual Neutral Athletes”. That’s the name the IOC is making Russians to compete under since it would “be unfair to punish the athletes.”


The IOC can play all the word games it wants. But, I’m pretty sure in Russia they still call a spade a spade. So you can bet a bunch of “Individual Neutral Citizens” will all be placing bets on “Individual Neutral Athletes”. “Individual Neutral Athletes” who will, more than likely, be just as jacked to the tits with all manner of chemical aids as they were when they were still called spades… I mean, Russians.

Anyway. What was I talking about?

That’s right. Medal tallies and patriotic bets.

After Russia/Individual Neutral Athletes, the medal tallies drop off fast.

In the last Olympics, for example, this year’s host, France, only bagged 33 medals in total. That’s precisely 0.29 medals for every medal the US won.

But maybe don’t target France this year seeing as they’re all so bitter about the games coming to their country.

Instead, let’s scroll down the list and find some other juicy targets.

How about Saudi Arabia?

There’s a bunch of people there with plenty of cash to splash. And guess what? They only managed to get a single silver medal at the last games.

Now, I know what you’re thinking right about here.

Isn’t gambling illegal… er… I mean haram in Saudi Arabia?

Yes, it is.

But you know what happens when you make something illegal?

People just do it anyway.

Apparently, according to TGM research, 56% of Saudis had participated in gambling at least once in their life. And a full 35% had done so at least once in the last year.

As for sports betting itself, about 35% said they were into it, and a full 20% of the population had done it online in the last 12 months.

Presumably, they just did it with a VPN. And hey, that just means you can double dip on the commissions. (PS: If you need a good VPN to cross-promote with, we featured a PureVPN affiliate program review in last week’s edition.)

Anyway, hopefully, you get the point.

Oh, and one other thing. If you think 20% of the population isn’t much, think again.

Data from the same firm found that only 10% of people in North America had placed a bet online in the last 12 months.

The EU was only 18%, just one percent ahead of Asia Pacific (17%).

In fact, as a proportion of the population, the only regions that come close are LATAM (21%), and Africa… which actually beats it by a country mile with a full 34% of respondents having placed sports bets online in the previous 12 months.

Oh, and speaking of country miles, just make sure if you’re going to promote in Africa, you avoid picking up any marathon bettors in Kenya. Even if they place stupid “patriotic” bets, there’s a pretty good chance they’re gonna absolutely destroy your net revenue.

Anyway, hopefully, you’re getting the point.

There’s a ton of people who are into the Olympics.

And a ton of them place silly patriotic bets.

And there are a ton of places you can promote in, even if sports betting isn’t technically halal/kocher/legal/etc.

And that means, if you target the right countries, you should see a nice net revenue in your account once the show’s over.

Now, as for the top sports to target, that’s probably going to depend on what country you’re promoting to.

It’s also going to depend on the audience you promote to.

For example, if you’re promoting to college jocks, then maybe try water polo.

If, on the other hand, you’re promoting to gay men, then FYI — diving became massively popular with them since a bunch of the sport’s stars came out.

In any case, if you do your research, you’ll find a way to niche down with whatever sports/audience you choose.

Otherwise, if you wanna run a spray and pray campaign, here are the top ten sports with no regard for where or with who they’re most popular.

  1. Gymnastics
  2. Track
  3. Swimming
  4. Women’s Soccer
  5. Water Polo
  6. Men’s Basketball
  7. Team Volleyball
  8. Table Tennis
  9. Wrestling, Taekwondo and Judo
  10. Handball

Also, don’t rule out some of the more unusual sports, either.

There’s a good chance some of them might surprise you. For example, did you know curling was much more popular than its “weird thing they do up north” image might let on?

We looked at that in our CamSoda affiliate program review edition. And while it’s not a Summer Olympics thing, it’s a pretty good example of what you can find if you dig a little deeper into something.

As for what unusual sports you should look into, there are many — here’s the full list from the IOC itself.

But just to illustrate what you can find, remember how we found out curling was a bigger thing than it seems?

Well guess what. The dedicated r/Curling subreddit has just 18k members. Meanwhile, r/Fencing (an actual Summer Olympic sport) has 43k members.

Now, whether that translates into as many viewers/fans as curling, that I don’t know. But you’re a bunch of smart affiliate marketers, so I’m sure you’ll find the stats you need.

Oh, and before I close this off, here’s one other thing that appeared in the news this week — Equestrian is a leading cause of brain injuries.

True story.

The injuries can be fatal, too.

To quote one of the top safety guys in the sport talking about stuff going wrong and why it’s way more dangerous than even NFL, it’s that “you don’t have a 300-pound lineman that’s going to fall on you; you have a 1,200-pound horse… so the consequence can be really great.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds like something you could spin into a bunch of clickbait. I mean, who doesn’t want to bet on the most dangerous sports in the world?


That’s enough about the Olympics.

As you can see, there are a billion ways you can promote it, and (at least) double the number of people who are gonna get deep into it. (Probably more… depending on whose stats you trust.)

What there isn’t billions of, however, are sportsbooks that you can promote.

And there are even fewer if you cut that number down to the sportsbooks you’d actually want to promote with.

As for who we’re gonna be promoting with, the Bovada affiliate program is definitely one of them.

Closing Thought

So, with all this Olympics talk, I thought it was only appropriate to go looking for some Olympic athlete inspiration.

That’s when I landed on this.

Now, of course, with Reddit being Reddit, it didn’t take long until some smart ass piped up and put OP in their place.

Apparently, the origin is actually Conor McGregor.

Anyway, whoever it came from, the point remains the same.

If you’re a winner, you focus on winning.

That means they focus on stuff like training/working out/working on their business/whatever it takes to improve themselves in whatever it is they’re trying to achieve.

Meanwhile, losers spend their time fixating on the winner’s achievements, filling up with envy and self-doubt.

And so, instead of getting on with whatever it is that needs getting on with, they get stuck trying to imitate at best, or doing nothing productive at worst.

So if you wanna be a winner, work hard and forge your own path.

As we saw with the Olympics, there are a million ways to achieve success in the same thing. So don’t get envious. Don’t fixate on imitation. Do what works for you.

Oh, and speaking of things that could work for you, there’s a pretty good chance the Bovada affiliate program is one of those things.
