Internet marketing is essential for any casino. Without it, you're relying on an inconsistent and unpredictable stream of visitors to your floor, and that means the amount of money you earn can vary wildly from week to week.
But with Internet marketing, you can make sure you have visitors lined up to come to your casino months in advance. Whether you promote your casino with concerts, deals, celebrity appearances, or some other method, you can use events at your casino to draw people with pre-purchased tickets, offers, and other incentives that make people commit.
That’s easier said than done, though. When you want to generate leads for a casino, where do you even start?

Create and optimize a top-notch website
The backbone of any lead generation is a highly-functional website. Top-notch websites show people that you’re a modern, active company. On the other hand, poor websites make you appear outdated, lazy, and unsuccessful. That means if you want to start getting leads for your casino, you need your website to look great.
After that, you can generate leads by improving your site for search engine optimization (SEO). There are hundreds of factors that go into successful SEO, but new websites can concentrate on on-page factors like your URL name, headings, title tags, and more.
Publish high-quality content
Now that you have a quality website, you can fill it with outstanding content that’ll engage visitors to your site and show them that you’re the casino they want to visit.
You have a lot of options at your fingertips when it comes to content, including:
Blogs can cover a huge range of topics, like current events, industry news, and even in-house staff interviews. Articles generally deal with more conceptual topics, like how casinos make money or what games have the highest payout.
Videos are also versatile, and you can use them to show off your facilities, demonstrate how to play a game, or just show people having a good time on your gambling floor. Similarly, you can use graphics to show statistics and other information in eye-catching, fun, and interesting ways. And last, you can create guides that teach new gamblers how to play classic games like blackjack, Texas hold ‘em, craps, roulette, and more.
Create and maintain social media accounts
Now that you have great content on your site, you should promote it. That’s where you can use social networks like Facebook and Twitter to promote different content on your site. After you do that, your followers will see that you made something new, and they have the chance to share it with people who follow them, resulting in brand recognition and new lead generation.
You can also use social media accounts to keep in touch with your customer base. If people have questions about your casino that you don’t answer on your site, you can have a direct conversation with them on the social network of your choice. You can also field any customer complaints or show your fun side and joke around with your followers.
Regardless, you’re improving your public image, spreading the word about your brand, and attracting new leads to your casino.
Make it easy for someone to become a lead
With all of that done, it’s time to actually get your leads.
It may sound obvious, but you won’t have success in generating leads unless you make it easy for people to become leads. That means you should advertise all of your contact information, events, and form fields prominently on your pages.
Contact information traditionally goes in the footer of a website. Events are almost always shown on a calendar that you can link from your homepage. And form fields can be on every page you have, including your homepage, contact page, about page, and blog. The key is to keep them short so that site visitors can type in as little information as possible and become new leads for you to nurture.
The basic information for leads includes:
- Email address
You can also ask for more information. However, it’s important to note that you’ll get fewer leads when you ask for more information. It’s generally good to limit yourself to four pieces of information that could include:
- Zip code
- Phone number
- Favorite game
There are more possibilities out there, but these are some of the most common for casino lead generation.
Nurture leads through email marketing
Now that you have leads, it’s time to nurture them into becoming paying customers. For casinos, that means following up with someone by email. Your email messages should be based on the information that your leads give you so you can nurture them the best way possible.
For example, if someone gave you their information on a page about a band playing at your casino, you can send them an email about future concerts to keep them interested. Similarly, if someone signed up and told you that they loved blackjack, you can email them about your world-class blackjack dealers.
With so much going on in one place, it’s easy for your casino to nurture any lead and turn them into a customer.
