Concernant Clictune, c’est un très bon site pour gagner de l’argent avec des liens – un bon cashlink comme on dit – personnellement j’ai un filleul, sur Linkbucks qui est un cashlink lui aussi, qui a gagné 11 000$ le mois dernier grâce à ce genre de site. Je le sais car j’ai gagné 20% de ses gains grâce au parrainage. En ce qui concerne ce site, il faut avoir une bonne visibilité sur les réseaux sociaux et/ou un site. Par contre, c’est une sorte de régie publiciataire plutôt intrusive, donc à utiliser à des endroits appropriés.
In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists' CD's directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen's website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist's music page.
The only difference with the offline middleman and affiliate business program is that the online affiliate does not need to get hold of the actual product to earn revenue. He doesn’t need to shell out money to buy the product that he has to sell. All he has to do is create a site that markets the products of the producer. Every time he makes a sale, the producer will take over to send the actual products, receive payments and extend customer support, when necessary. A special web-based script records this process and thus the affiliate is paid for every successful sale he makes.
