Marketing prices are skyrocketing these days, and there are many options for getting your poker site noticed. Pixabay

there are many important things to factor in before starting an online poker site. The first decision you’ll have to make is which poker network you want your site to be a part of. All major poker networks allow new poker site operators to join their existing networks. These existing networks will provide you with the poker software and playing platforms you want to offer your potential customers.


So, your first stop should be the poker network’s websites, where you’ll be able to choose not only a network but also whether or not they can provide you with everything you need, such as instant play, completely downloadable, and mobile poker apps. Keep in mind that starting an online poker business is not inexpensive, as you will have to
pay upfront fees that can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and don’t forget the continued commissions to the poker network. Like any new business, you must be passionate about the subject (in this case, poker) to inspire players to join and stay with you through your journey.

We’ve spoken to some successful poker players who have done just that and have put
together this guide for poker lovers wanting to set up their own poker site.

Attract Players to a Newly Launched Poker Site

The actual cost of obtaining players to sign up to your soon-to-be-launched poker site can sometimes outweigh the initial start-up costs of choosing your poker network and software platform. Marketing prices are skyrocketing these days, and there are many options for getting your poker site noticed.

However, some options can be both pricey and ineffective. Many poker sites provide an affiliate program, which allows web admins to promote your poker sites on their sites in exchange for a one-time fee or a percentage of the revenue
made by the players they refer.

You can only attract web admins or webmasters with highly successful poker-related
websites by providing them more than other poker sites they already promote. As a result,
you risk spending a small sum for each player they bring in for you.

Another option to generate interest in your poker site is to advertise it on television and radio. However, you must target your clients if you choose this route, and unless you offer a substantial signup welcome bonus, your advert will not entice poker players to visit your site.

Configuring Poker Tournaments That Players Will Want to Enter

It will be relatively simple for you to set up your cash ring poker games in such a way that
each level of poker player will be able to find an appealing and affordable poker table at your site. As a result, setting cash ring games will take little effort, as you can offer a standard set of buy-in values and a variety of pot-limit and no-limit games that most, if not all, poker players will like.

If you want to attract players that enjoy entering and participating in poker tournaments, your soon-to-open poker site will need to provide a diverse choice of tournaments. You’ll need a good mix of every form of poker event you can think of, including but not limited to freeroll poker tournaments, multi-table poker tournaments, and sit-and-go poker
tournaments.

Many new poker sites will make the error of offering guaranteed poker tournaments with
large prize pools, and as a result, they risk losing money on such poker tournaments with a
set of guaranteed cash rewards. Keep in mind that a newly founded site may not have enough participants at first to recuperate the cash rewards offered by way of registration fees.

Keep Players Loyal to Your Poker Site

These days, it doesn’t take much encouragement for a poker player to switch sites, so there are many things you’ll have to provide your players to keep them loyal and to keep them coming back to your site. You can retain loyal players by offering ongoing discounts as well as poker rewards program to ensure that they play at your poker site frequently.

However, a few additional factors can and will assist you in keeping the poker players who
sign up for your site, one of which is quick winning payouts. Players will stick to playing at your site if you can set up a system to get paid out immediately after requesting a cash-out, such as when using an online wallet as their
withdrawal option.

Never undervalue the importance of providing players with round-the-clock customer
service. If a poker player has a problem while playing at your site, they will want it fixed right away, which they will accomplish if they can contact your support service at any time of day or night.

Actress Kangana Ranaut has talked about how her weight adjustments for her latest 'Thalaivii' that "messed up many things" in her body and left her with "permanent stretch marks". For her role in the film, based on the life of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and former actress J. Jayalalithaa, Kangana had to gain 20kg and undergo major physical transformation several times.

She took to Instagram to share her experience, detailing that doing all that over the six months period left her with "permanent stretch marks". "Gaining 20 kgs in 6 months and loosing it all within 6 months that too in my thirties messed up many things in my bodya I also have permanent stretch marks as well but art comes to life with a price and more often than not price is the artist him/herself," she wrote.

"Thalaivii" showcases the varied aspects of Jayalalithaa's life, tracing her journey as an actress at a young age to becoming the face of Tamil cinema, as well as the rise of the revolutionary leader who changed the course of the state's politics. Talking about her upcoming works, Kangana currently has 'Dhaakad'.

She is also shooting for her next 'Tejas', where she plays a fighter pilot. The Indian Air Force was the first of the country's defence forces to induct women into combat roles in 2016. The film takes inspiration from the landmark event. 'Tejas' is directed by debutant Sarvesh Mewara.
