Running a business is challenging. There’s a lot that goes into running an online agent business. It’s not as simple as accepting plays from your clients and collecting money from them.
First off, in order to even be competitive in the market you’ll need software, a website, real-time odds and a large selection of markets from sports leagues around the world.
The days of a player only playing on a single sport such as the NFL are over. While some players stick to a single sport, the majority of players today expect to have hundreds of markets to play on.
Players also expect a variety of bet types, including props and futures. Trying to keep up with all of the moving markets is impossible without the help of professional odds managers.
The way small agents are able to be competitive in the online agent industry is through joining a pay-per-head (PPH) service that includes all of the features discussed above, plus a whole lot more.
Features of RealBookie
RealBookie offers a complete business package for agents starting at $10/head or less (based on number of active bettors). The cost is what you’ll pay each week per active player.
This is ideal for small-medium sized agents. First of all, some players won’t play every week and with this pricing structure you won’t pay for an inactive player. Lastly, the size of your player list is irrelevant. You can have as little as one player when you start your business.
- Software and Odds: The software is regularly updated and has a great UI that your players will find easy to navigate. The team at RealBookie have several odds managers working around the clock to ensure that your lines are always sharp. One reason why it’s important to maintain sharp odds is so that your clients don’t use your lines to place arbitrage bets.
- Features: Some of the features include mobile-accessibility, games and horses. Having a website that’s responsive (mobile-friendly) is imperative in today’s market. The ability to provide games and horses has multiple benefits. For example, you’ll increase revenues as well as increase player retention since you’re an all-in-one solution.
- Call Center: Your players can call in bets 24/7 using a toll-free number. Sometimes players won’t have access to the internet, which is why offering a call center is beneficial.
