2015 is proving to be a great year for the iBus Media's business-to-business (B2B) portal Poker Affiliate World (PAW) as the site reported a remarkable growth in the second quarter (Q2) of 2015.
Between April and June, the affiliate marketplace managed to double its affiliate base from the first three months of the year, also growing the revenues of its members accordingly. Currently, PAW counts nearly 12,000 subscribers and offers over 50 different affiliate deals.
"We are extremely pleased with the results," the Head of PokerAffiliateWorld.com Viktorija Antanavičiūtė told PokerNews. "This proves that our affiliates have recognized the hard work we all did to make our portal a reference point in the industry."
"However, this is only the beginning," Antanavičiūtė continued. "In the coming weeks, we will launch a new series of premium and exclusive deals together with tools that will help our partners to get the most out of their blogs and convert their traffic like never before."
In January 2015, PAW underwent a total makeover that resulted in a sleeker design and an all-new affiliate backend. Only a few months later, the site managed also to get back to the North American market by signing a strategic partnership with Draftkings, the biggest name in the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) industry.
When asked to comment about the future of the B2B portal, Antanavičiūtė announced that the company has some "ambitious plans for the upcoming months."
"We are going to expand in niches like mobile gaming, financial trading, and DFS. We want to continue to improve our platform and to offer the best affiliate deals in the market."
Antanavičiūtė also hinted at an upcoming high-profile poker-related program on an exclusive basis and this she believes will help the site to keep the momentum going and to keep growing in Q3.
"We aren't allowed to share any details about it right now. All I can say is that this is going to be an amazing and exclusive affiliate deal available only to PAW members," Antanavičiūtė explained. "We plan to announce the new partnership within days. This time, we are ready to surprise everyone with a very attractive offer that won't be available anywhere else on the Internet."
