      We should have been clearer in the email on why the Affiliates program is relevant to
      podcasters: lots of podcasters already provide the iTunes Store link as one of several
      subscription methods. If you're an Affiliate, you can put your Affiliate ID into that link to your
      podcast. Then, when potential subscribers visit the Store from your link, you get the 5%
      commission from the purchases they make for the remainder of that 24-hour session. So
      even though you're linking to something that is free, you're getting the commission on the
      other purchases they make over the rest of their session.

      So it's not just for music podcasters; anyone who provides a link to the iTunes Store- -even a
      link to a free podcast--can potentially benefit. If you've got an iTunes Store link to the
      podcast on your site, in announcement emails, etc., you might consider becoming an Affiliate
      as another way to make money from your podcast. It probably won't be a cash bonanza, but
      it may be a worthwhile experiment.
