We are actively looking for third party partners that want to open download shops in their communities. Two early third party shops, or affiliate stores, is the Jazz music download shop at All About Jazz (click “downloads” to go to the store) and the Metal store Metalhit.com but there is more coming.
Recently the Swedish magazine “Får Jag Lov” opened a store in their newly launched community. This is a shop specialised in music for dancing, or what we in Sweden call “Dansband” music.
This is a good example of a store offering niche music to a niche audience…!
How it works is basically that the affiliate store asks suitable Klicktrack labels and artists if they are willing to sell their music in the store. The store gets a percentage of the net sales, this will be negotiated and varies from store to store, and Klicktrack administers all sales and reporting as usual and deducts the usual commission fee. In this way the third party store will be able to offer great music to their community and labels and artists will reach an audience in the “right” target group. Since we do all the administration this is an easy thing for the third party to set up and we have total control over the sales and the payments and royalties back to the labels.
Please let me know if you have a good lead or know about a suitable third party that you believe would be interested in starting an affiliate store. Also, please let me know if you have music that you feel would be suitable in the examples above and I’ll put you in contact with one and other.
