Making money in online poker from non playing avenues

If you want to make a success of online poker then you need to avail yourself of as many external financial resources as you possibly can. This is especially the case of new players and novice players who may not have the experience level or skill level to be able to make money from the actual games. Until that point is reached then it is important that you take advantage of the sign up bonuses and other promotions that sites like Switch Poker offer you.

Let us look at a hypothetical but all too real situation where two poker players with equal ability start out playing online poker. Both are novices and both lose $200/month on the tables. However player number two takes advantage of a sign up bonus that means that he breaks even over a three month period.

Player number one on the other hand is down by $600 despite having the same level of ability and who plays in the same games. If player number one becomes disgruntled with the game and leaves then he is not only down by $600 but he has never given himself a chance to improve into being the type of player that can make money from the tables.

The money that you make when poker is taken much more seriously can snowball. For example if you become serious about your poker then you may start a poker blog or become a writer full stop. If your thoughts and opinions reach a wide audience then promotions like the “Aeroplane” at Switch Poker can suddenly begin to earn you money down other avenues. Everything is linked in life and poker as well and it is amazing how many opportunities present themselves to you in the future and all because you treated your poker in a more business like way.

    I agree you need to give yourself the best opportunity to “win” in life as well as in poker. Have you found it hard to find other avenues to make money aside from playing poker?

    Here is estimated expense to build a website :
    – hosting : $40 – $80 a year
    – domain name : $2 – $10 a year
    – wordpress theme : there are a lot of free theme
    – content : if you have no skill in writing, I have a vendor that charge $0.75 per 100 words. I usually outsource to him. You can see the quality in my blogs below.
    – generate backlinks through bookmark, blog network, blog commenting, etc. I prefer utilize fiverr. There are so many cheap service ($5); to do that.

    Regarding the content, I can give you contact name if you are interested to outsource the article content.
