More INFO

We use a special affiliate app called GOAFFPRO.COM

Here is a description about how the system works...

What is GoAffPro?

Goaffpro integrates with our MusicStoreUSA.com ecommerce store. It creates your affiliate portal for the shop.

To understand more about goaffpro app, first you need to understand concepts behind affiliate marketing. If you already know about it, you can skip this section

What is affiliate/influencer marketing ?

Affiliate marketing or Influencer marketing, is the branch of marketing where other people promote a store or products in exchange for commissions on sale of products.

Who can be an affiliate/influencer ?

If you have a large following. You might be a blogger, instagrammer, youtuber. You are read or watched by hundreds of potential customers, or your opinion is respected because of your position as a teacher, educator or respected musician or musical scholar...or technical expert, if you are dealing with technical products.  You could be a very active student. A promotion by you can boost our sales. The ideal affiliate for MusicStoreUSA.com could be professional teacher who seeks music for their students and is knowledgable about the composers or pieces they need for their own cohort of students, and might also know a bit about the qualitative differences between various publishers and/or editors.

MusicStoreUSA.com endeavors to list historical and other useful information to help guide you in your choices of music and publishers. In addition, whenever possible, we include extracts or page examples to show the type of material and some of the fingerings or other editor's markings.

Consider the following: If you put a link into a tweet you will reach a certain number of followers at the specific time you send the tweet out. If you tweet at various times of the day, you will increase your potential viewership. However, if create a post in a blog or website that stays up 24-7, you may get increased traffic flow of a different nature than you would from the twitter usage. So, consider which social media tool(s) you think will work best for the particular goal you have in mind.

What do you get in return ?

You're given a commission on sale of our products. We give you 6% on every order. So if a customer referred by you purchases $100 worth of stuff, you, the affiliate will get 6% of $100 = $6 as sale commission. Affiliates who bring in consistently larger numbers of purchasing customers will receive higher rates and bonus rewards including financial and product rewards that will be announced as these become available. If you are one of the first 100 affiliates to sign up, When you sign up, you will receive a coupon for 10% any product in the store that is good for one year & will have NO LIMIT to the number of products you get discounted.

How do we know which customer is referred by the affiliate ?

This is where the goaffpro app comes in. It tracks the sales and attributes them to the proper affiliate.

How does the app work ?

When we installed the app on our store, the following things happened.

  1. A branded affiliate portal was created for MusicStoreUSA.com and you are provided with a link.

  2. An affiliate tracking script is installed on our store.

  3. An goaffpro admin dashboard is setup in our store admin area

Each of these 3 components help us run an efficient affiliate program.

The branded affiliate portal

This is where you, as a new affiliate register, see your earnings stats, payments, and create the referral links for store products. Every affiliate that registers on the portal is given a unique referral link to our store to share with their followers. The link when clicked, brings the visitors to our store.

The affiliate tracking script

The tracking script is installed on our store. Whenever any visitor comes to our store from the referral link of our affiliates, the script tracks the visitor for its entire visit. If the visitor buys something for our store, the commission for that sale is credited to the affiliate who sent the visitor.

How to use the affiliate tracking script

You write an article in your website or in your blog, a tweet or post on facebook about your positive experience using MusicStoreUSA.com. In that post or article, you mention a particular product such as a piece of music, which you've found on the MusicStoreUSA.com eCommerce store. You insert your custom tracking code as a url or link to that product. The reader then uses that link to go to the store and buys the product! You then automatically get the commission payment that is computed as a percentage of the cost of the product they purchase! Once your dashboard is set up, use the Marketing Tools menu to create customized links to products you'd like to promote to your fans, students or readers.

To Summarize

We have set up affiliate commissions using an admin dashboard. You, our new affiliate, register on the affiliate portal and are given a unique referral link upon approval of your application. The visitors you refer are tracked with the tracking script and if they buy something, the affiliate (you) are credited with the commission for that particular product (as setup in the admin dashboard). 

Can I get a higher commission rate?

YES. As time goes on, and we grow, we will from time to time revisit the commission rates. We may create a tiered commission structure, as other companies have done. However, there are some products that have lower profit margins, and those products may pay the lower commission rate.  We will be in touch by email with updates to our affiliate program.
From time to time, the affiliate procedures and/or terms may change. You will be contacted with updates about any such changes and information about such changes will also be posted on this page.

Can I use my discount and to buy stuff and still get my commission?

YES YOU CAN! Unlike other discount programs, which can't be combined, you can use any special offer affiliate's or other customer discounts to buy stuff. Use the affiliate link to purchase your desired products. You will still receive a commission check on those sales! So, you might get our new affiliate's 10% discount, plus a 6% commssion on a $50 item. So the item cost you $45 after discount and then you'll get your $2.70 commission back. So your total cost for the $50 item will end up being $42.30. Do your math carefully, though, since your commission is paid on a percentage of the sale price after discounts are applied! Some of our very productive (affiliates with high respectability and viewership/followers) may be eligible to receive free products to try out and blog about!
