I would like to know how other creators do affiliate marketing for their Patreon.
I have searched and basically come up empty - I could super easy set up a subscription parallel with Patreon to create a revenue stream outside Patreon but it would involve me keeping an eye on multiple accounts and I’m lazy so I don’t want the hassle.
For me the ideal situation would be for me to be able to give out affiliate links via an in Patreon affiliate system set up.
I’d give my affiliates a link (the affilliate) then shares the link to his friends, fans etc.
When 3’rd party signs up the affiliate receives a reward, say after the 3’rd party has been a Patron for 3 months (why 3 months? Well to eliminate potential fraud with stolen hijacked naturally) and then the affiliate receives a monthly cut transferred into his patron balance without any involvement on my part.
That way we as creators could concentrate on creating and others who are good at selling could become our ambassadors benefiting themselves and us creators at the same time, plus adding additional revenue into Patreon - a Win Win for all parties involved.
We as creators could set the affillitate cut to say 10-30% depending on how hungry we are to get more patrons.
What about it Patreon - Think your engineers are up for a small challenge that can have huge impact and revenue for you?
