to Make Money on a Music Website through Affiliate
by Jeff Schuman II
Do you find yourself looking for a way to make some
extra money? How about creating a website on something
that everyone includes in their life, Music? The
opportunities are endless and whats great
about it is that you can make money on it while
youre eating, sleeping, or just sitting around
Dont get me wrong, it is a lot of work in
the beginning to get everything started. Once you
get your website built the way you want it though,
all that is left is maintaining it to keep it at
tip top shape. From there youll be making
money off of it 24/7. So, how do you get started
and how do you make money off of it you may be wondering?
To start off you need to purchase a domain name,
which is your website URL. You can do this at GoDaddy.com
for a cheap price of .20 per year. Now you have
your website name, the next step is to pick a host
for your website. This is where you will build your
website. You can do this at GoDaddy.com starting
at .95 per month, or choose to go to another hosting
company as there are many out there.
From there you are set to build your website, now
how do you begin making money off of it?
There are many ways to make money off of your website.
One way is to join affiliate programs through companies
around the world. How an affiliate program works
is you join under that company and refer people
through your website to their website. Then, as
people go to the companies website through yours,
whatever the person buys you get a certain
amount of money off of their purchase.
The amount made varies from company to company and
it even varies among the different products sold.
The big name companies youll often make less
money off of, such as Best Buy and Circuit City
youll make approximately 3-7% on all sales.
Smaller companies some times offer more through
their affiliate programs, but people sometimes will
opt to go to the well known companies instead.
For a music website youll obviously want to
join affiliate programs dealing with entertainment
of some sort. Bestbuy.com and CircuitCity.com are
good ones to join, but can be difficult to get into
when youre just starting out. One good one
can be found at:
Clickbank.com is an affiliate network that is extremely
good to join as you instantly gain access to you
choice of over 10,000 digital products to sell on
your website. There are nine categories associated
with clickbank.com, but categories to focus on with
a music website through clickbank.com would be fun
and entertainment and sports and recreation.
Where you find the registration form for the affiliate
programs is on the companies homepage, and
it is usually listed on the bottom of their homepage
as affiliate program. When doing a music website
you dont have to just stick with music affiliate
programs either. You can focus on entertainment
as a whole that way you can join affiliate programs
for games, movies, posters and more.
Another way you can make money through affiliate
programs is two-tier programs. Two-tier programs
are programs that you make money off of people signing
up for the affiliate program through you. Not all
affiliate programs offer two-tier programs, but
they are out there and signing up to affiliate programs
with two-tier programs is to your benefit. A few
entertainment two-tier programs that I have joined
The best thing with affiliate programs is that they
are free. You make money off of selling companies
products and it doesnt cost you a thing to
register under the company. Another bonus to affiliate
programs is that there is no limit as to how many
you are allowed to join and put on your website.
The sky is the limit with affiliate programs and
money can be made 24/7 on your music website today
at the cost of nothing.
