Gaming companies are using different marketing tracks to promote their brands and services. On the one hand, there is the old school marketing with buying ad space with ads popping at every channel you open. And then, there is affiliate marketing.
Affiliates are partnering with the brand and drive traffic to the brand channels and points of sale. The more traffic, the higher the rewards. For gaming/poker brands, this is the cheapest and most authentic marketing that they can do, as the commission is paid from a successful conversion only.
For the affiliate (poker blogger, webmaster, YouTuber) this is usually no extra burden, as they post about the topic anyways.
Smart brands are always on the lookout for great content creators. And smart content producers are still on the lookout for a high revenue share or CPA deal.
