Do you need a gambling website business plan? Gambling websites can be some of the best web portals on the Internet. Upscale gambling sites with slick graphics and strong user interfaces—FullTiltPoker, PokerStars, and BoDog come to mind—are some of the most successful sites online when it comes to attracting incoming traffic and building a loyal user base. But how can you join their ranks? Sure, a gambling website business plan needs to show the market opportunity, but this might be the easiest part. What you also need to do is develop a marketing strategy that can drive traffic, build a competitive profile that shows the weaknesses of the sites that will advertise alongside you, and create an integrated five year pro forma model outlining when and how you will break-even and what the eventual return on investment will be. Consider these questions:
• - What sort of gaming will be your core focus—conventional table games like poker and blackjack, or automated games like slots?
• - Will there be interactive features for multiple players to compete, or is your concept all "player versus house"?
• - How will payouts be conducted? Can you demonstrate the timing accurately in your financial model?
• - What marketing methods will you explore other than cost-per-click and web banners?
Because a bank loan is unlikely to cover the capital required to launch, you will probably have to approach private investors, which means building out a complete financial model with cash flows, revenue projections, a balance sheet, sensitivity analysis, and a complete monthly breakdown for the first year as an appendix. The financial model can be difficult to complete well without advanced software or the help of a business consultant.
