PartnerMatrix throughout 2020: challenges, new partners and achievements

The uniqueness of 2020 gave our PartnerMatrix team the opportunity to rise above its challenges, either by constantly optimising our software, making our solutions available for more clients or adapting fast to working from home.

While the COVID-19 lockdown also made an impact on the iGaming sector, with sports betting at a serious disadvantage, it gave a chance to verticals such as esports to shine. And PartnerMatrix, in particular, had the occasion to start new types of partnerships and make sure our software tools are updated to meet the evolving needs of new and existing clients.

According to PartnerMatrix CEO Levon Nikoghosyan, PartnerMatrix succeeded to promptly reorganize its activity in the first month after COVID-19 hit: “Going through remote work experience was not an easy task at first. We could overwork or miss something important due to a lack of face-to-face communication. But very quickly we reorganized and started operating according to the new situation. Thus, we rethought our relationship with partners. Our support and account management teams created a more flexible communication style with clients, proactively reaching out to them regarding system maintenance tasks or updates, for example.”

Boosting our media presence and B2B partnerships

Partnering with media platforms and creating strong outbound connections proved to be the key to success for us. Especially in 2020, with its lockdowns that excluded gatherings in “real life”. Yet, with the help of iGaming affiliate portals and directories such as AffPapa and Affiliate Guard Dog, we managed to extend the reach of our networks, introduce ourselves to new audiences and create stronger brand awareness.

  • Affiliate Guard Dog is one of the pioneers of the iGaming affiliate industry. They proved their efficiency in creating a strong iGaming community, and by helping companies solve certification and other issues easier and faster.
  • AffPapa is a newer and very promising platform that has already united hundreds of iGaming affiliates and operators to find better solutions. We will continue strengthening our outbound connections in 2021 and looking forward to new media partners.

2020 also saw PartnerMatrix expand its business into the B2B realm. Our brand is becoming the affiliate software of choice for B2B platforms through a handful of selected partnerships with providers such as Digitain, Prisma Gaming, DAOGroup, and Soft2Bet, among others. PartnerMatrix’s B2B partners leverage the technology for their own B2C clients, who are looking to launch high-performance affiliate programs.

Industry recognition and networking:
EGR B2B Awards | PM Talks

In July 2020, the PartnerMatrix affiliate system received industry recognition at the prestigious EGR B2B Awards as highly commended Affiliate Software of the Year. Being noticed by EGR was a result of many years of hard work, which makes us very proud and binds us to keep on delivering at the same level.

Admittedly, this year we didn’t benefit from the exposure of meetings, summits, forums and brainstormings, as most big events were cancelled. On the other hand, we were able to reorganize inside the digital space, find new collaboration opportunities, arrange a lot of online meetings, and we managed to extend our network.

Our first event from the digital series PM Talks allowed us to connect with incredible professionals from the iGaming affiliate marketing, coming from Bookmakers Rating, AFFPapa, FotuneJack, GSH Media, Playigo, GPWA, and Friends of Dench. We are looking forward to seeing more guests joining our future PM Talks episodes in 2021.
