So, you're planning on taking advantage of a pay per head (PPH) free trial?
We know some may be thinking that there's nothing free in this world, but there are reasons why PPH companies offer free trials and there's nothing nefarious about them.
Why Do PPH Services Offer Free Trials?
You have to understand that PPH services want to help turn new bookies into long-term clients.
The main reason is money. Many PPH companies only make a small fee for each active player on a betting sheet each week. The more active clients a bookie has, the more they'll need to pay the PPH.
So, PPH services have a vested interest in their client's success.
That is why they're willing to offer lengthy free trials to new bookies. It helps the bookie get going without an initial financial outlay and if the new bookmaker is successful, it’s a win-win for both parties.
How to Ensure You Take Advantage of a PPH Free Trial
New bookies want to make sure to get the most out of a free trial.
Have Players Ready to Bet: Before starting a free trial, it's a smart idea to have at least 2-3 sports bettors ready to bet. The reasoning is simple. If you start a free trial and then spend a week finding your first player, you've just wasted a good portion of the free trial.
The number one goal to ensure you get the most out of your pay per head free trial is to begin earning money. With a few players active, there is the potential to make thousands during the trial period.
Test Everything: The next goal should be to test out all of the PPH features. Make sure you create betting profiles, utilize the customization features and access the betting reports. Make sure to spend a little time educating yourself on PPH features before starting a free trial.
You want to test out everything. Not only that, but you want to find out what the service might be potentially missing. For example, not all PPH services will offer extended live betting markets.
Length of Free Trial: Find out how long the free trial is being offered. While the number will vary, you should expect a free trial to last around four weeks on average.
A short free trial isn't going to give you enough time to test everything out. Ideally, you should look for a free trial that is four weeks or longer, as that will provide enough time to start making money.
Utilize Support: A lot of new bookies won't even contact support during a free trial. That is a terrible plan. Don't be shy about asking for advice and guidance.
PPH services are there to help you out when you need it. It's one of the features they provide and the top PPH sites will be more than happy to help you, especially when you’re new.
New bookies that take advantage of free trials get a leg up on their competition. By not having to pay any PPH fees for weeks, you can build a bigger bankroll.
