Initially, the newsletter will be published three times per week, which is intended to be expanded to five by autumn and sent to PointsBet’s customer email base of around one million people.
The new publication will replace the existing one sent out by PointsBet, while it is stated to feature more gambling news and tips for the target audience.
The aim of the newsletter is to ‘help existing bettors become more engaged, in addition to accruing new customers’ – according to PointsBet, while also intended to be a cheaper alternative to paid digital marketing, which is an expensive endeavour.
Guided by PointsBet Editor Teddy Greenstein, the publication will be created by Front Office Sports’ in-house content studio.
Rick Martira, EVP of Marketing and Strategy, said the company is not “opposed to monetising the newsletter with sponsorships, as long as it is secondary to the primary objective.”
