Earn Money With Our Affiliate & Revenue Sharing Program

The great thing about being a host on BlogTalkRadio is that not only do you get to create your own live talk radio show, but you can also make money while you’re at it.  Just this week, we did a BlogTalkRadio University show all about our Affiliate and Revenue Sharing Programs, which you can listen to here.  We had special guest, Mike Shelton, our Director of Marketing Acquisition at BlogTalkRadio, come on to break down our Affiliate Program, which he runs.

Here are the programs in a nutshell, which will help you to understand why being a part of both programs is a win/win for you.  Did we mention, they are free for you to join?

Affiliate Program

How does it work? You place BlogTalkRadio banners and text links, that we provide to you, on your website or blog.  Each time, someone clicks through and signs up for one of our Premium, Plus or Pro packages you get paid from $25 to $175.

Revenue Sharing Program

How does it work? Earn 35% of advertising revenue for advertising impressions (video, audio, banner) displayed to your BlogTalkRadio listeners that visit your profile or episode pages.

Of course the income  you generate from both programs varies and is dependent on how much work you put in to marketing your show.  The more traffic you can drive, the more revenue you can generated for yourself.  For tips on marketing your show, visit Marketing Club and to listen to the entire broadcast on the topic of Affiliate and Revenue Share, click here.

Introducing Link Feature from Segment Page!

Do you have a guest who’s written a book, cut a CD or been in a movie or television show? Now you can help promote those items with an easy and direct link to right on your BlogTalkRadio segment! It’s built right in to the segment tab of your account.

Our developers have released the new Amazon Link feature that enables you to post your guest’s book, CD, DVD (or whatever) onto your segment page. This image will be displayed in the show description on the show page. When “moused over” it shows the details of the item and provides a link directly to the item’s page on!


Additionally, any sales generated by the link on the segment page are credited towards the host as part of the Revenue Sharing program (if enrolled), so you can make money by helping your guests promote their items. A real win-win.

This can be done for all new segments as well as archives. You can edit older shows and insert the Amazon image and links for people who are listening to your archives. Here’s a hint, make sure in the future you mention this during your show, so people listening to your archives via your site or MySpace page know a link to the guest’s work is easy to find from BlogTalkRadio.

Take a look at this how-to guide for more information. It couldn’t be any easier. Search, click and post. Help your guest and help yourselves with this new Amazon Link feature.
