Earning Commission on Velvet Revue
The primary way Artists on Velvet Revue make money is through Supporter sign-ups. The only way to earn commission on sign-ups is if you share links with your affiliate code attached and a Supporter joins through one of these links. You continue earning your monthly commission for as long as that person remains a Supporter on Velvet Revue.
Here is an Example:
Regular URL with NO affiliate link (does not earn you commission):
Personal URL with affiliate code attached (can earn you commission):
Followers don’t even have to sign-up right away for your commission to be honored. The affiliate code uses non-invasive cookies to track a link click for 30 days. So, in other words, if a follower clicks on one of your links one day, but signs up 20 days later, you still get commission since that sign-up can be originally traced to your personal link.
Generating Affiliate Links
To maximize your earning potential, we’ve made it so you can generate an affiliate link for any page on Velvet Revue: all profiles, videos, blog articles, and events. So, if there’s an event coming up (even if you’re not in it), and you share that event page with your affiliate link, you’ll get commission if your followers sign up through it.
There are TWO ways to create affiliate links. You must be logged into your account:
Go to the page you want to share with your followers. Then click on the Menu Icon ( ☰ ), and click on “Affiliate Link” at the bottom of the Menu. A pop-up window will then appear, where you can copy the link directly, or use the social media icons to post directly to your accounts.
The other method is to copy any Velvet Revue URL and paste it in your Affiliate Code Generator. There is also an option to add a Campaign Name to your links. Campaign Names can be used if you’d like to track where your sales are coming from. For instance, using the Campaign name “Facebook” on all your Facebook posts, “Website” for your personal website. This helps you understand where your followers are joining from.
How To Share Your Affiliate Links
Your links are valuable, so put them on all of your media accounts. Place them where they are prominently featured, so you get more clicks & maximize your commission. Remember, you won’t earn commission on sign-ups if you’re not sharing your affiliate links. Making money on Velvet Revue relies on how much you share your links.
Besides social media accounts, don’t forget to add your personal your affiliate links to your:
- Instagram (via Linktree)
- Facebook Photo Captions
- YouTube Video Descriptions
- Email Signatures & Auto-responses
How Velvet Revue Promotes You
Velvet Revue was created by performers. It is run by performers. Promoting Artists is our esteemed pleasure. You’re amazing people, with incredible skills, and we freakin’ admire you.
We make it a priority to promote you by featuring you in livestream shows, podcast episodes, and on social media.
Together, we attract a specified audience. Together, we provide more value for Supporters who are interested in cabaret entertainment. Together, we create a niche platform with a powerfully engaged online audience.
When your Velvet Revue Artist Profile is published with your first video, you are automatically scheduled for “Welcome Posts” on both Facebook and Instagram. You will receive an email requesting Photo Permissions. When it is time for your “Welcome Post”, we will always share it with your affiliate link (so YOU get commission if any one of our followers signs up).
As your new photos & videos are posted, we will be looking for new ways to share teasers of your content!
New artist videos will regularly be featured in our Monday night Variety & Burlesque Shows and in special livestream events.
Velvet Revue will put out site-wide casting calls for our own livestream shows. Artists who participate will receive additional promotion leading up to the show and will automatically be sent affiliate links for the shows, as a courtesy. Artists receive increased visibility from Velvet Revue’s promotion and therefore increased likelihood of sign-ups and tips, but Artists do not receive compensation directly from Velvet Revue for inclusion in the livestream shows.
The Violet Revue: Official Podcast of Velvet Revue, is an interview show featuring the amazing artists from the platform, and other entertainment industry professionals.
Artists on Velvet Revue will be approached with a pre-interview questionnaire for Podcast inclusion and additional promotion.
As Velvet Revue grows, artists will have the opportunity to cross-blog with us. We will also include mention of our artists wherever appropriate. Our blog is optimally written for SEO. With the steady release of more blog articles, more and more of your content will be linked to it, providing your personal brand additional exposure and search-ability.
