The strategic partnership focuses on what is currently a trending topic among many betting operators – engaging sports audiences and increasing conversions through editorial content.
Tzvetomir Naydenov, CEO and Founder of Efbet said: “The online betting industry may be incredibly fast-paced in terms of technology, but at its core, the main products still remain commoditized in the eyes of the customers. For us at Efbet editorial content is an extremely valuable differentiator. It gives us the ability to leverage our sponsorships, showcase our in-depth sports expertise, and ultimately build our brand. A brand that puts fans at the heart of everything we do. Besides cutting-edge CMS technology, Sportal365 gives us a decade of publishing know-how incorporated into a single out-of-the-box product. It has already been deployed in Bulgaria (https://prognozi.efbet.com/) and we are planning to use it also as a lead generation tool on markets with more restricted legislation on direct advertising.” he added.
“We are glad to have earned the trust of Efbet for powering their content capabilities. A very innovative and entrepreneurial driven company that never settled for anything but the best. We share the same passion for sports and fan engagement”, said Stilian Shishkov CEO and Founder of Sportal365. “Content has become a hot trend for many bookmakers only recently. But when it comes to Efbet, they were going in this direction even before we decided to partner. The focus of our project will be to boost what they were already doing well in terms of editorial features.”
