Digital Music; an area for the savvy affiliate.

An idea that I'd like to present to beginning affiliates is a subject area where I believe there is a lot of growth potential. I think that blogs and web sites devoted to digital music have the potential to explode.

In todays post I will briefly state the reasons why I believe this and give a few ideas on how this knowledge can be used by the savvy affiliate.

1. Digital music is the next wave in the continuing progression of music. Younger people aged 18 - 35 are very interested in digital music.

2. Everyone loves music, or knows someone that does. It is true that younger people love music but older people love it to. So music is a universal area to do affiliate marketing in.

3. There are many quality affiliate merchants that an affiliate marketer for digital music can work with.

Examples include;

iTunes Essentials

Musicmatch Jukebox Plus

Amazon Associate Program

Musicmatch Jukebox Plus

Rhapsody - which has a free down load promotion going now

Also there are affiliate Networks that will administer many of these merchants for you, for example; LinkShare is an e-commerce business solution for over 3.5 million online relationships. Become an affiliate of the LinkShare Network for FREE and earn revenue by linking to over 500 premier online merchants.

And then there is the All program which states;

4. There are tons of material that an affiliate can write about and use to keep there site and or blog up to date with.

For example has a complete list of mp3 files that can be linked to and written about.

In tomorrows post I will talk about strategies that the beginning affiliate can use to create a blog for digital music.


And in other interesting affiliate marketing news;

Online industry executives recently tried to distance themselves from the controversy over adware and spyware, while at the same time insisting that they are working to solve the problem. Well lets hope for the affiliates sake that they get a handle on some of the underhanded tactics that are being used in the name of affiliate marketing.

Which give us all a bad name. You can read all about it here;
