I've been with Footbe for three weeks now, I've tested, or am still testing, various other predictions softwares, whose name I could mention here without being detrimental to Footbe, since they do not compare to Footbe.
So, my first impressions are positive on the whole. What I was told by support before subscribing turned out to be true: one does have to stay in front of one's computer the whole day on week-ends to be able to enjoy the software to its full, since only recommendations that still show within 30-15 minutes before kick off count and should be bet on. Here comes my first question: is it feasible to set a more definite timeline? Indeed, the first day I used Footbe's recommandations, a Championship match involving Wigan was green-squared X 20 minutes before kick off, I bet on it, only to find out 3 minutes later that it was gone from the page. What's worse, X was not the end result. Was this a mistake, or could it happen again in the future? If so, it could impact drammatically the ROI.
Besides, a given recommendation may change completely from the moment it was posted to the moment it is actually squared. This is disconcerting, but, of course, completely acceptable. Here comes my second question: is this radical change due only to a change on the team line up?
I'm impressed with the fact that Footbe is a project that is thought through, and has a long-term vision. I understand that the Beta Test is a test of a purely technical order. Is it so, or is it also that you are stil testing your betting method(s)? No matter how well-planed, a venture of this kind can only last as long as an effective betting method exists.
How many leagues do you plan to introduce? This leads me to a fourth question. From the number of recommendations you post every week, it is clear you are fully aware that betting involves 'feeding' punters with a certain regular amount of bets, as opposed to some 'tipsters' who will deliver only 5 or 6 tips a month. Psychologically, it is important to know that, if you lose your first or two first bets with a 'tipster', or a predictions software, you won't have to wait for a week or more to get a third tip, or recommendation. So my fourth question is: what is your plan for the Summer season, especially for a month like July,, or even June ? If your reply is that you don't have any, that's fine with me, as it's better to wait for the right moment to make a recommendation, instead of 'feeding' punters with recommendations at any cost.
Some minor leagues still operate in June or even July. Do you plan to eventually introduce one or two of these leagues? It seems that bookmakers are not as confortable with some of these minor leagues as they are with major ones, when it comes to set odds. If this is true, it could be an opportunity, provided, of course, that it is supported by an effective betting method.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
