How To Become A Tipster

We often get asked how to become a tipster and there are several things you need to consider. In this article, we’re going to talk about having the right ethos to be a tipster, the skillset you’ll need to be a tipster, and how to prove you have what it takes to be a successful and consistent tipster.

If that sounds like you, we’ll then tell you how you can prove yourselves to Betting Gods, a tipster platform that already reaches 1 million people per month and has paid out over $1,000,000 to its expert tipsters.

Do You Have The Correct Ethos For A Tipster?

The first question you need to ask yourself is have you got the right ethos to be a successful tipster –which is a desire to make decent profits from gambling for your followers every bit as much as you want to make money for yourself.

If you don’t have lots of followers, you’ll find it hard to be a successful tipster, so always remember to put your followers first.

Have You Got The Skills To Become A Successful Tipster?

All gamblers have good runs, but you need to be able to prove you can make long-term profits from gambling to become a tipster. Most tipsters provide tips for one popular sport, such as horse racing or football. Others diversify into less popular sports such as basketball, cricket, greyhound racing, or ice hockey.

Some even fine-tune their selections further by only betting on a sport in one country, such as US Horse racing, although in fairness James of US Racing Expert does actually live in New York!

Occasionally, we find tipsters that can combine tips from two or more sports, such as tennis and golf. That’s why we keep an open mind when potential tipsters come to us with a new idea for a tipping service.

Prove You’re A Great Tipster

Betting tipsters used to have a bad name for themselves, as they’d spring up from nowhere and announce themselves as tipsters in an attempt to make a quick buck.

A few of these charlatans may still try it on, but punters have got wise to these fakes. Most tipsters now prove themselves through a variety of channels, such as becoming a newspaper or website tipster, or by posting tips on popular social media channels such as Facebook or Twitter.

But many tipsters find it difficult to build a following, which is why many tipsters now prove themselves by taking an extensive trial with popular betting platforms that offer you the chance to connect with thousands of potential subscribers.

Be Consistent

Gaining the trust of punters by taking a trial may make you a tipster, but you’ll need to consistently make profits to keep punters subscribing to your services. Most experienced punters accept that making a profit from gambling is a long-term goal, but they’ll still expect you to have more winning months than losing months.

They’ll also expect you to be responsible with their betting bank and provide a consistent staking plan rather than chasing losses if you’re having a bad spell. Ultimately, punters are looking for tipsters that are making themselves a decent profit from gambling and will make them one, too.

How do tipsters make money?

Tipsters make money by charging subscriptions for their services. Customers pay a fee to receive access to the tipster’s betting tips and advice, which are often based on their expertise and experience in a particular sport or betting market. The subscription fees can vary depending on the tipster and the level of access provided, with some tipsters charging a flat fee for access to all of their tips, whilst others offer tiered pricing based on the level of service provided.

Charging subscriptions is a common way for tipsters to monetise their skills and knowledge, as it provides a steady source of income and allows them to focus on providing high-quality tips and advice to their customers. However, it’s important to note that not all tipsters charge subscriptions and some may offer their services for free or for a commission on winnings. Ultimately, the way that tipsters make money can vary depending on their business model and the specific needs and preferences of their customers.
