How To Make Money On A Music Website Through Affiliate Programs?

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 what's great about it is that you can make money on it while you're eating, sleeping, or just sitting around watching TV.

Don't 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 you'll 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 $9.20 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 $3.95 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 buy's 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 you'll often make less money off of, such as Best Buy and Circuit City you'll 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 you'll 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 you're 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 don't 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 include;

The best thing with affiliate programs is that they are free. You make money off of selling companies' products and it doesn't 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.
