People working full-time or on the side as gaming affiliates are seeing significant results this year. We’ll explain what a gaming affiliate really is and look at some of the modern methods people are using to be an affiliate marketeer in the gaming niche. We’ll also ask why gaming affiliates are making big moves this year.

What are gaming affiliates?

Affiliate marketing is a way for people to market a product or service they don’t own or provide. However, by getting people to buy or sign up for that service, they can receive a commission or a payment from any buyer or subscriber. Therefore, gaming affiliates are people who make money by marketing products and services within the gaming industry. This might be video games, or it could be casino gaming.

For example, one of the easiest ways to become a gaming affiliate is to set up a website dedicated to promoting other products and services in the gaming industry. You might write reviews about certain gaming products like headsets. Or, in the case of casino gaming, you might set up a gaming affiliate site – such as smashcasinos.com – and review casinos, welcome bonuses and casino games. Links are then created from your site to the company you’re marketing for, which tracks how many customers you send their way.

But this is just one method of affiliate gaming. In 2022, there are lots of other and more innovative ways to become a gaming affiliate. Read on!

Modern methods of gaming affiliation

Gone are the days when you could only be an affiliate marketer with a blog where you would upload product reviews and buyer guides. The best and most successful gaming affiliates are embracing video content as a way to make money.

By creating gaming video content, these marketers can review products in a visual and much more engaging way. It also builds trust with viewers because they can see that the marketer actually bought and reviewed the product. There is a concern that some just review products without actually owning them, relying on other reviews and online info.

Casino affiliate marketers aren’t left out of the video trend either. They can record their casino gaming sessions, including slots, classic table games and live dealer games. They can then tell people where they can play these games, such as recommending an online casino to sign up and play – often with a welcome bonus. Links are often added to video descriptions.

There are different platforms where video gaming content can be successful. Twitch is a dedicated platform with a massive video gaming audience. But it’s also a saturated market. So, YouTube can be just as fruitful.

Why gaming affiliation has taken off in 2022

The events of the last two years have gotten more people into gaming, and these people want to know about the latest gaming chairs and best slot games. Combining this with video affiliate marketing which is much more engaging, there is a natural recipe for gaming affiliate success this year and beyond.
