Effective Digital Marketing Strategies for Online Casinos

Online casinos have enjoyed impressive growth and success in the last few decades. The first online casinos began to emerge in 1994 after the Free Trade & Processing Act was passed in Antigua and Barbuda. This meant that online casinos could apply for licenses, thereby making online gaming in this form legal. In the decades that followed, online casinos started to move from a niche curiosity to become an accepted part of the wider adult gaming industry.

Today, there are estimated to be over 3,000 dedicated online casinos, and they contribute to a multi-billion-dollar part of online entertainment. However, as the number of online casinos has increased, there is a need to promote sites more effectively to ensure that consumers are aware of their existence in an increasingly crowded online marketplace. This can be achieved through the adoption of effective digital marketing strategies, some of which will be described in the following article.

 

The use of SEO to increase traffic

One of the most powerful marketing tools is to adopt the best practices of search engine optimization (SEO) for your online casino. This is a multi-faced approach to content and website design that has the overall aim of boosting the site’s page rankings when customers search for online casinos. For example, pages should be fast to load and must be accessible on the smaller screens of smartphones. Regular content should be produced for the online casino in the form of blogs and interesting articles that resonate with the target audience. Keyword research should be undertaken to ensure that sites can compete for the words and phrases that potential visitors are searching for when they look to play online. These are just a few key strategies of SEO, and comprehensive adoption of such techniques will ultimately help online casinos reach the first pages of search engine results, gaining far higher traffic volumes.

Promoting welcome bonuses on social media

One of the key ways to attract new customers to your online casino is by offering exceptional welcome bonuses. For example, if you navigate to Spin Casino Canada, you will see that the site offers new gamers a $1,600 deposit bonus. This is where the casino will add its own funds when you make your first deposits, effectively giving you more money to gamble with. In addition, the site allows new players to spin ten times each day for a chance of winning a $1,000,000 jackpot. Such welcome bonuses are extremely attractive and need to be promoted to the wider adult online audience. Sites such as Instagram are ideal social media platforms to publicize such bonuses as they have a user base of over 2 billion people and accept both short-form and long-form adverts. Create short but memorable campaigns on such channels that link back to the specific webpage of the casino, allowing interested adults to take advantage of the bonuses and become paying customers.

Pay-per-click campaigns

As a brief final point, pay-per-click online campaigns can be an effective way to promote online casinos. The casino will only be charged when a potential customer clicks on the banner of the ad campaign as it appears online. This can make it an incredibly cost-effective way to generate increased traffic to your site and can dramatically increase the brand awareness of the site online. It is estimated that the average cost-per-click is just $2.59, which makes it an attractive proposition for smaller or new online casinos with limited funds for online marketing.
