By registering as a Music for Makers affiliate, you agree to be bound by the following terms.

Registration

To qualify for an affiliate account, you must either be a Music for Makers customer or subscribe to receive my free weekly song. (It doesn’t really make sense for people who don’t use my music to recommend it.)

As a result, your application must be approved before you may start earning referral commissions. But don’t worry, it shouldn’t take more than a few days, max.

Registering as an affiliate does not make you an employee of Music for Makers or Polymath Digital, LLC. This is not a legally binding relationship, which means you may not take legal action against Music for Makers or Polymath Digital, LLC.

Note: I reserve the right to reject any affiliate application for any reason. You can find more information about why I might reject an application under “inappropriate use” below.

Commissions and getting paid

I pay affiliates in USD through PayPal in the first week of every month. The minimum payout balance is $50.

Referrals cannot be generated on your own purchases (even if you use a different email address). And I do not offer recurring referrals.

Commissions are subject to approval before being paid out.

How the referral process works

After someone clicks your unique referral link, a cookie is stored on their browser for 30 days. If the person makes a purchase on musicformakers.com within those 30 days, you will be awarded a 70% commission.

This generous referral period allows time for prospective customers to review the product and ask pre-sale questions.

You will not receive a commission if the customer makes a purchase past those 30 days (because the cookie will expire) or if the customer uses a different browser, where a cookie is not stored.

Affiliate communications

By becoming an affiliate, you agree to receive the occasional email from Music for Makers.

For example, I might want to follow up on your application with a few questions or share important news that may help you drive more referral traffic and, therefore, earn more money. But don’t worry — I’ll never send spam.

How you can refer new customers

Ready to start earning referral revenue? Here are just a few ideas and tactics to try:

  • Share Music for Makers with your friends, family, customers, clients… whoever you think might benefit from royalty-free music
  • Write a blog post about where to find royalty-free music
  • Create a video review about Music for Makers
  • Post about Music for Makers on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media sites

The amount of money you make is directly related to how many sales you drive. So get creative!

Whatever you do, just be sure to use your unique referral link so you earn the commission you deserve.

Inappropriate use

I reserve the right to reject affiliate applications and disable affiliate accounts for any reason without notification or explanation. Websites I may reject include (but aren’t limited to) those that:

  • Are inappropriate*
  • Aren’t aligned with my industry or relevant to my target audience
  • Use spam or shady tactics to promote Music for Makers
  • Partake in illegal activities

This is a non-exhaustive list. If you have questions about what is allowed, please get in touch.

*Inappropriate websites:
Websites that produce anything unlawful, abusive, threatening, obscene, libelous, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable and offensive; or anything that promotes violence, discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, harassment, or harm against any individual or group are ineligible for this affiliate program.

These affiliate terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.
