In its most basic form, affiliate marketing is a reward system, used by many ecommerce brands and businesses, to acknowledges customers who have been sent to them via a third party. Affiliate links are abundant throughout the Internet and mobile applications and in fact, it’s likely you’re clicking affiliate links everyday without realizing it. The Customer is any John Doe with an Internet connection or mobile device who likes to use the power of the Internet to purchase digital or physical goods, including apps. The Merchant is a brand, retailer or business who hosts an ecommerce storefront and receives customers coming on his or her own initiative, as well as customers referred from a Publisher. The Publisher, or referrer or “affiliate”, can be any third party with an online presence (website owner, blogger, email marketer, or in your case, app developer) who hosts a link to an item within the Merchant’s marketplace. The Affiliate Network is the service (often a third party) used to facilitate the affiliate program between Merchant and Publisher. Affiliate marketing is becoming predominant in online advertising because it’s a much less risky model for Merchants, compared to buying ads by the impression or click. Apps, books, music, games (both digital and that vintage 1950’s Monopoly set you’ve been scouring the web in search of), and more can all be purchased online.
Every app developer that links to the App Store should be using the affiliate program for three reasons. By swapping out links to products inside the iTunes Store and App Store for affiliate links, you will create a new revenue stream. Another great place to use the App Store Affiliate Program is with links to your app from the web or email. Using affiliate links in paid promotions (for example, ads in Adwords, Facebook, LinkedIn or iSocket) is not only a good way to diffuse the cost of advertising, it is also helpful to leverage the tracking that the affiliate program provides.
Also, if you have an app trailer on YouTube, don’t forget to use an affiliate link to send people to your app in the App Store. A good rule of thumb: If you send a user to buy an item in iTunes or the App Store, you can affiliate the link. The App Store Affiliate Program also has some great analytics that every app developer can use to help push their conversion rates higher, which means even more additional revenue.
Earnings Per Click (EPC): Total earnings divided by the number of clicks it took to make that money.
Top Countries: Where in the world your clicks are coming from, and how often each purchases something after clicking your links. Knowing the above metrics can give you a better idea of which links you’ve created are actually working, and where the best placed links are.

Easy purchasing - every software developer that I bought stuff from had a different payment process. Based on how the Mac App Store has worked for me, I don't think it will be long until an independent software developer will only be able to sell via the App Store. I bought a new MacBook Pro earlier this year so I thought it was a good time to check out the Mac App Store and see how it helped the laptop setup process. I upgraded OSX to the latest version on both machines and purchased all the apps that I have been using for a while.
The best thing about the Mac App Store from the consumer perspective is that every purchase is a "family" licence where I can install the software on all my Mac computers. Now all three of my Macs have the same set of custom apps which I can update with the click of a button on the App Store.
At Shedworx we didn't jump straight into the Mac App Store because we were getting ready for our trip to MacWorld and finishing off Cosmos. Today all of our Mac apps, except Jaksta and HD Quick Look are listed on the Mac App Store.
HD Quick Look - this is a QuickTime plug in so needs an installer to run when setting it up. There is anecdotal evidence out on the web that a large percentage of people don't buy software from anyone but Apple. There are a few restrictions about what can be sold on the App Store which hold back some developers.

In this article, GeoRiot co-founder, Jesse Lakes, discusses what affiliate programs are at a high level, then dives into five powerfully simple, yet under utilized ways that app developers can take advantage of the Affiliate Program to earn additional revenue. In exchange for directing purchasers to their stores, the ecommerce business then shares a percentage of that sale with the person who referred the customer to their store..
In the case of affiliate marketing, that link also includes a little something extra in the form of affiliate technology. Merchants are happy to devote a small portion of their earnings, if it means they are receiving sales with minimum risk.
And where there’s an opportunity for an online purchase, there’s typically an affiliate opportunity following closely behind.
First, using the affiliate program is an easy way to earn additional revenue and 147 of the 155 international storefronts support the program.
You can use affiliate links from within your app to promote other app titles you’ve developed (for example, if you are promoting a paid version of an app from the free version). Use affiliate links on your website, in your signature on forum posts, or in email marketing campaigns (an often overlooked channel of marketing for app developers).

Affiliate program tracking lets you compare the success of ads or marketing messages by link to provide analytics beyond just click through rates. One-off posts are great but we’ve seen great success when app developers leverage social media to promote their app by allowing their users to post high scores, share content, invite friends to play, etc.
Promoting new or popular items from within your app is a great way to use any remnant ad inventory.
For example, you shouldn’t use affiliate links when sending users to write a review or give a rating.

Wondering if I am eligible to be an affiliate if I am not an app developer or own a website but only own a channel on YouTube.
I hate putting all the details in every time I want to buy something, not to mention the security risk of deciding every time whether the payment site they are using looks OK or not. We run a mailing list where we send out news, run the occasional survey and generally try to understand our user base better. The ease of purchasing, peace of mind and multi-seat licensing making it a real winner compared to the old way of buying apps. Among other things, that extra affiliate information is later used to reward the publisher for some or all of the purchases made by a referred source. On the flip side, publishers have a tremendous opportunity for opening an additional revenue stream of affiliate commissions as these arrangements are much easier to secure then paid CPC or CPM deals. You can earn a 7% commission on ANY item purchased within 24 hours of clicking on your affiliate link—even if the user goes on to buy movie or TV show as well as, or instead of, the app you linked to. Developers frequently do this from an “About” or “More” screen, or even screens between levels or lives in your app or game. All you need to do is pick a few apps that you think complement your apps, create an ad (making sure to always follow Apple’s Identity Guidelines), then use an affiliate link to send the user into the store and earn your commission. Elaine has also published over 300 mobile apps across Amazon, Apple & Google, and enjoyed over 20 million app downloads and over 50 #1 apps worldwide. Second, the affiliate program offers a simple way to do track the success of links you place in social feeds, apps, websites, etc. This makes Mac App Store listing mandatory for us and I'm sure all the other software developers are finding the same thing.
Finally, the affiliate program is free to use and doesn’t have any impact on your end user’s experience.
