Why Is Monetization a Dirty Word for Bloggers?

Blog monetization

Traditional publishing has long maintained a “church and state” separation between the editorial and advertising departments. Meanwhile, from the reader’s point of view, the two have always intermingled. The daily news appears alongside ads for fashion brands, department stores, and household services. We can almost certainly credit the the abundance of local car dealership advertisers for the auto section in local newspapers. The line has always been blurry. Read More

Music Bloggers – Make Money with the iTunes Affiliate Program

If you write a blog about music or the entertainment industry, then this post is for you!  Even if you just occasionally write about music, podcasts (that are available on iTunes) or simply have your iTunes playlist published in your blog’s sidebar, you can make some passive income from that content with the Apple iTunes affiliate program.

To join the iTunes affiliate program, you simply have to apply using the iTunes affiliate application, which is administered by LinkShare.  When you’re application is approved, you’re directed to log into your new account with LinkShare where you can manage your account, access your ad code, and so on.  You’ll receive a second email from iTunes within a few days notifying you whether or not your blog was accepted into the iTunes affiliate program.

The earnings potential for the iTunes affiliate program isn’t huge at just a 5% commission on qualified revenue generated from affiliate links on your blog or in your emails.  However, if you’re already talking about music or podcasts on your blog and you’re already linking to content on iTunes, why not include your affiliate ID in those links and make a bit of money from them.

Keep in mind, the iTunes affiliate program is only valid for the U.S. iTunes store, so make sure most of the visitors to your blog are likely to make their digital music purchases from the U.S. iTunes site before you take the time to apply, insert your ad code, and so on.

You can get more information on the iTunes affiliate website or on the program’s FAQ page.

Of course, if you don’t qualify for the iTunes program or would prefer not to join it but still want to earn a passive income from digital music links on your blog, you can always link to music downloads as part of the Amazon Associates affiliate program.
