Hey all, I have a question about referrals. Are any of you making decent money from them? If you are are you willing to share what kind of revenue they generate? I will go first, I have been here around two years and not had one referral, I have never put any effort into it.

I guess I am curious if anyone has had success with referrals and if it is worth the time putting effort into getting them or if I am better off writing more music.

thanks

Hi brownhousemedia,

I had 1 referral who registered and put a deposit, so I got my cut. I’m here since February. I don’t do any marketing specifically for referrals, so my case may not be the best example. I guess, the point I’m trying to make is that the referral system does work, so there is a potential as long as you want to spent time on this.

Cheers, M

Yes, I can only agree to plastic3, BTW what a nice rhyme :-) I had in the last couple of months thousands of clickthroughs but not a single result (registered members or even income through deposits)

Better invest your time in the production of awesome tracks ;-)

Hey Tim,

I didn’t see anything for referrals until I started making a decent effort over on YouTube. That is where I started to notice a really significant difference. I have 37 referrals currently, and I believe the grand majority, if not all, came from there.

It’s definitely nice to have the few people come through now and again, but for sure I keep the main focus on the music as thats what has the best ROI for me.

I have 1 referral cut so far about 1 month ago and it was pretty decent. I just started adding referral links this year, so maybe got lucky. I personally think if you are going to put effort into marketing your tracks, then it isn’t that much more difficult to add the referral link in your marketing.

As Tim McMorris said, I think that youtube is a great place to drive traffic to your AJ page. I’m consistently getting around 20 clickthroughs a month with the few videos I have up.
