Email from WSEX...

[ QUOTE ]

WSEX Poker would like to announce that we now have full hand histories to hard drives available for all levels and types of games.

We pay back 75% of the rake every Monday, no minimum play required. There are three $5,000 added Tournaments per week with a $10 entry fee. Of course we still offer our "Aces Never Lose" promotion four nights a week.

Play poker at WSEX and find out how much you are throwing away in rake anywhere else.

One idea: we finaly got a hint at WSEX strategy, that is, getting players then slowly decreasing the rakeback. Except that there aren't any players over there.
Or, maybe 75% rakeback sounds more credible than 100% rakeback.


Another thing, if it hasn't already been discussed before:

As of Today, August 28, 2007, WSEX is offering two types of tables. One type allows players to record all of the hand history data, including player names, directly to their hard drive. The other type doesn't allow any access to the hand history.

Both items are old news. They went to 75% RB a couple of months ago. The HH/Non-HH tables is much more recent; there is a seperate thread on that; it's titled "worst WPEX improvement" or some such thing.

http://www.worldpx.com/funding/firstpay.asp

does anyone have any experience in withdrawing via first pay? how exactly does it work, any problems, etc. ?

this seems too good to be true and far superior to the payout by check which takes forever, yet I can't find anyone talking about this...why not? what am I missing?

First Pay is dead. I don't see it when I go to the cashier page. That's an old page that shouldn't be linked from anywhere.

Default Marketing

I believe what WPEX needs more than anything right now is a marketing campaign. I'm no marketing pro, but I do have a few ideas I'd like to share.

1) Deposit bonuses: give people a reason to move money there. Offer an ongoing 20% first-time deposit bonus, $100 max, 7x playthrough, which gives you the other 25% rakeback WPEX currently keeps.

Reload bonuses: offer $100 reload bonuses on a regular basis, maybe every 2 or 3 months.

I believe deposit bonuses are one of the strongest marketing tools available for poker sites.

2) The Theme. Make WPEX the focus of the ad campaign, not WSEX. Possible slogan: 'Free Money, More Choice at World Poker Exchange'

Along these lines, I appreciated the free t-shirt last year, but the advertising value you got for it was minimal because I never wore it until I blacked out the big WSEX.com on the front. You see I was too embarrassed to wear it out because WSEX.com sounds like a porno site. Call me a wuss or whatever, but that's the way it is.

I'd suggest you try (again, probably?) to buy the domain www.wpex.com, if you are committed to make the site big in the long run.

3) FPP points, make these worth some reasonable value. Model this on Stars program, including the VIP portion. Giving people levels to shoot for is an important mental trick to encourage heavy play. Making the points worth something will also reward those loyal players who have been with you long term.

Offer sign up and reload bonus to attract new players.

Offer something value for the point earn.

How to fund this:
Get rid majority of the added tourney each week, get rid of the AA promotion if necessary.

You will have tourney going automatically if you have enough players.
