How To Sell Music

Sell Music Or Any Merchant Products Through A Niche Network

In this article you will receive information on one of the most common and leading method that many small and large businesses get their product or services exposed to thousands in a niche network.

The best way for me to explain this concept is by telling you how Devine Jamz Gospel Network partnered with some of the greatest businesses that used this technique to receive our affiliate marketing partnership.

how to sell musicLets say that you have either a ton of songs you’ve written, maybe sheet music you created, even studio services to lease out, music lessons perhaps, or anything that is marketable within your profession or business! More than likely most of your time is either dedicated to creating the music, managing your studio, teaching music lessons through video exchange, or what ever it may demand of you to create your product and/or services. Not to mention, you probably have a full time job as your primary source of income. So how do you find enough time in the day to create marketing campaigns and the tedious work it takes to effectively market your product and/or services?

First, I recommend that you partnership and join an affiliate marketing network. Even more, you can obtain and run your own affiliate marketing program using the software provided by various affiliate marketing networks. There are pros and cons to joining an affiliate marketing network versus having your own affiliate marketing program. And I will have more details about that in a follow up article. But generally speaking, affiliate marketing is very beneficial to those who effectively use it to market their merchant product and/or services.

What exactly is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business (merchant with products or services) that belong to an affiliate marketing network or have their own affiliate marketing program rewards the affiliate marketer with a sales percentage for driving customers to the merchant website to purchase their services and/or product. The business with the services and/or product (merchant) only pays a percentage to the affiliate marketer when the marketer sells the product or service for the merchant. Together a strategic partnership is formed between the merchant and the affiliate marketer. Sounds pretty easy huh!

Now, depending on your product or services (music in the artist case) that you have to offer will determine who among the affiliate marketers will opt-in to your merchant program to sell your goods for you. Every affiliate marketer may have their own type of niche product or services that they want to sell for a merchant. As for Devine Jamz Gospel Network, we as affiliate marketers are very selective on whom we partner with and the product/services we promote. If it can’t help our artists or ministries gain more exposure or if it can’t be used to promote the kingdom of God, we will not include the merchant product/services to our network. We also look at the reliability of the services or product the merchant is offering.

The following information is an example of our application process of how we at Devine Jamz Gospel Network determine which affiliate marketing business will benefit our ministry (view affiliate marketing on our parent website):
