    Music/MP3 Affiliates

    Does anyone know of any (good) affiliate programs that pay you for promoting the sale of MP3s through them? It'd also be great if they had a LOT of MP3s for download, and even more great if they paid you for leads, such as a user listening to just a sample of the MP3 or something.

    Is there even anything like this out there anyway?

    I hope you aren't wanting to do this to make money. These are some of the lowest paying CPA programs out there.

    Obviously I want to make money. That's what affiliate programs are for! But, no not really. I already have a healthy internet income. It'll just be a side thing. More of a side thing than the rest. heh.

    Your best bet is to sell music posters, MP3s don't pay jack.

    Lots of sites offer free mp3 download. So, will it be profitable selling mp3?

    If you are doing a MP3 site selling posters wont do much lol. Umm just run banner ads on the site. Top networks may not accept you but there are ad companies who will if you get a good amount of traffic.

    OR

    You can charge people for downloading albums but then again can run into legal problems. Why are u promoting bootlegging anyways? Whats wrong with you kids lol

    He is talking about legit programs like iTunes selling MP3s.

    The profit margin is barely there even for a place like iTunes. After the record company and everyone else takes their share there isn't much left. I'd recommend looking into somthing a little more substantial, perhaps DVD-audio. Others said posters. T-shirts may work too. Are there any concert ticket affiliate programs? I don't have any experience in this area, but those are some ideas to think about.

    Thanks for all the tips. My majority plan was to run contextual ads, linking up to MP3s and stuff was just a side plan anyway. I'll probably still run it for a while once I get all the traffic flowing in but hey, whatever happens happens.

    It's not like I'm basing my life on selling MP3s. :-D
