Apple Launches An Affiliate Program For Paid Podcast Subscriptionshttps://techcrunch.com
Apple last month unveiled its plans for paid podcast subscriptions in a newly redesigned Apple Podcasts app. Now, it’s introducing a new program that will help podcast creators grow their subscriber base: affiliate marketing. The company’s “Apple Services Performance Partner Program,” which already exists to help market other Apple services like Apple TV, Apple News and Apple Books, is today expanding to include paid podcasts.
When users convert by clicking through one of the links and subscribe to a premium podcast, the partner will receive a one-time commission at 50% of the podcast subscription price, after the subscriber accumulates their first month of paid service.
While anyone can apply to join the affiliate program, there is an approval process involved.
The program will be made available to anyone in the 170 countries and regions where paid podcasts subscriptions are being made available.
