Online casinos are one of the great business success stories of the last couple of decades. From an industry that simply didn’t exist until the mid to late 1990s it has become one in which new competitors enter the market almost weekly.

With players all round the world and a seemingly insatiable appetite for online gaming it doesn’t seem like a trend that is going to end any time soon. So, not surprisingly, many people are seriously interested in starting up their own casinos and you’ll find countless online guides to the nuts and bolts of doing this. These generally tend to focus on the technical and legal aspects of establishing the business but don’t really look into what’s needed to make it stand out in a crowded market place – namely the brand. So this is a quick guide to making sure that your branding’s spot on.

Whatever you do, stand out

The main purpose of any brand is to make sure that you present a unique and memorable image to the world. After all, while “me too” brands can survive it’s rarely these that prosper and they never do better than the major brands that they are trying to imitate. So the first step is to have a clear idea of who you’re hoping to appeal to and to create the right kind of identity. For example you think that fun and sophisticated may be the way to go or you might want to be a straighter, more conventional kind of casino or you can simply just describe yourself as the best online casino.

 

Get the games right

Do everything you can to offer unique games too because it’s these that are really going to hook in the players and keep them coming back before. Trying to do things like offering a slots game that they simply won’t find anywhere else or a wider range of poker tables than other sites are just two of the ways to do this.

 

Always add value

It’s most brands’ ambition to become a recognised authority in their particular field and online gaming’s no exception. So including a blog or an information section with articles and guides to all aspects of gaming, preferably written by recognised experts, will also provide a brand with an immediate air of authority.

Use promotions wisely

Promotions, whether they’re welcome bonuses for new players or loyalty points to reward existing ones, are going to be essential in a market as competitive as this. But, unless you want to become known as a site that’s big on bonuses, it’s best to keep them within limits. Admittedly, it’s a fine balance to strike but always offering bigger incentives than other competitors can give a slightly downmarket feel to any brand.

 

Spread the word

It’s all very well having a great brand, but it’s pointless if nobody knows about it. So make sure that a key part of your marketing is advertising through media like Google Adwords or through getting links to your site across the internet. And, the more the name crops up, the stronger your brand will grow.

So there you are, the bare bones of creating a strong and appealing brand. Do everything right and, before long, you could find yourself taking on the big boys – and we all know what happened with David and Goliath . . .
