Kenya has a huge number of betting sites, among them, there are those that offer a chance to making cash by referring customers to them. In this article, we are going to cover these betting platforms that have a referral or an affiliate program.
Difference between affiliate and referral program
Affiliate and referral might sound the same, they all involve referring customers by use of an invitation link for online platforms. However, they are slight differences and here is look at them;
- Referral program- in most betting sites, a referral program will involve inviting users and a bonus is given, mostly, it is in form of cash after they register on the site. At times, the token might be awarded when they making their first deposit or place a bet.
- Affiliate program- this is a well-established program where you invite users to the betting site and you earn a commission of what the customer stakes in a lifetime on the betting site. In rare cases, you might meet betting sites with a program that rewards you only for registering users and not a lifetime commission.
Affiliate programs are also referred to as partners programs. In most cases the programs are on their own dedicated site other than the main betting site, on the other hand, referral programs are usually incorporated in the main betting site.
The kind of program where you earn a lifetime commission from those you referred is better. Joining such programs might however have a higher requirement such as a website.
