If you’ve not yet settled on a brand name and domain, then this is the service for you. You feed in information about what you do and they’ll return with ideas for your domain. For those that struggle to create engaging brand names and find the domain to match, this service is fantastic.

It’s a service conducted by real brand experts, not just word generators. With casino and bingo affiliate portals becoming saturated, being able to gain insight into new brand names can really help you stand out.

Twit Ninja

For those that maybe struggle to create a strong social media presence, this is a Twitter growth hacking tool. It allows you to get rid of those you are following that don’t follow back, search for users interested in your portal and finds topics that your followers want to hear about.

There are other tools out there that do similar things, such as Crowdfire, but Twit Ninja seems to have more advanced options. This can drive engagement, new followers and an overall improved brand awareness for your portal.

TwelveZeros

Forecasting data and conversions through AI may seem impossible, but this tech is seriously helpful for affiliates. It takes all possible data and uses it to create a baseline of conversions, which will change over time thanks to the powerful AI.

Collaboration is simple and this allows others to fill in the gaps that the AI may not be able to understand. It gives you a clear view as to what is working on your affiliate site and what isn’t. This can also help you out in negotiations with operators, as you have all of the data at your fingertips.

SEO Prompts

Do you dedicate time each day to work on your site SEO? Most affiliates don’t. This incredibly simple tool gives you a reminder and a task that will take 15 minutes or less to complete. This could be checking out the top ranking pages and using their content elsewhere, evaluating your recent links or working on an ongoing strategy.

Affiliates can feel that SEO gets pushed to the side when they’re busy with other tasks. If you need a prompt to remind you to keep working towards your goal then this can assist you in getting better rankings and brand visibility.

Competitive Business

Keeping an eye on your competitors can be a tricky task for affiliates, as there are so many of them. This tool will track changes made to competitors’ websites, newsletters they send out and what they’re doing on social media.

This is a good way to understand what other affiliates are doing as an overall strategy. They may be running multi-channel campaigns, using this software you can connect the dots on all facets of them. If you see that another affiliate’s strategy is successful then you can work to tailor it to your own brand.

Growth Metrics

While you may already use tracking software to understand what your users are doing, are you aware of why they’re doing it? This is an add on to your site that allows you to survey users before they leave your portal. This can make you aware of errors in the user journey or general areas that could be improved.

You can also use it as a market research tool, for example you could ask users which operator they feel offers a better deal. Then, you can give this more prevalence on your site or replicate the strategy that you’ve used for this brand across another.

TrackYourPosition

There are so many options out there for tracking your SERPs but this one tracks the keyword, not your site. This tells you the top 100 sites ranking for the chosen keyword and how they have changed over time.

This gives you additional insights beyond what you’ll get from just tracking your own position. If you use it in tandem with other tracking tools, you’ll quickly be able to expand your knowledge on the current search trends that work.

These tools are great starting points to build your brand, but if you want to elevate it to the next level consider attending our Affiliate Bootcamp. This can help you gain the tools to build your brand bigger and better than ever before.
