A Primer On Affiliate Marketing

Put simply, affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting someone else's product or service. The affiliate (the one promoting) sends traffic to the affiliate offer and earns commission when someone buys, clicks, or otherwise engages with the offer.

As music producers, we can earn money by linking our audience to affiliate offers. In this industry, we'll often make a commission if the product or service is purchased (rather than getting paid per click or per lead), though “per acquisition” is also popular in subscription services.

So if you have favourite software (DAW, plugins, virtual instruments, etc.) or favourite hardware (MIDI controller, audio interface, microphones, headphones, monitors, computer, etc.), you can tell your fans about it and make some side cash while doing so!

After signing up for a program, you'll get an affiliate link that has a tracking code specific to your account. When someone clicks your link, they'll be sent to the product/service page, and any purchases will be associated with your account, earning you a commission.

Technically, when someone clicks your link, a cookie is placed on their browser. The cookie duration refers to the length of time a click is “good for.” Any purchases made within the time limit will be connected to you.

Commission rates refer to the percentage or flat fee paid out to you, as an affiliate, for each action (purchase, signup, etc.).

Affiliate marketing can be very lucrative. In fact, it accounts for roughly half of My New Microphone's income. So, if you've even made a purchase based on my recommendations, I want to thank you!

I hope you can see the potential in affiliate marketing as a music producer.

With that out of the way, let's get to the top affiliate programs for music producers.
