If you:

  1. Have created online courses hosted on other platforms (eg. Thinkific, Teachable, Kajabi)

  2. Sell a SaaS (software) package for teachers

  3. Sell an offline product or service (eg. piano tuning, instrument repairs, etc.)

  4. Sell another online service/product hosted at another URL that isn't practical to upload as a digital download on TopMusicMarketplace,

...and you'd like exposure on TopMusicMarketplace, there are two options available to you:

Firstly, if you have an established affiliate program for your product or service with trackable online links and have discussed Tim's participation in this program, then see below for information about setting this up.

Otherwise, you'll need to create a PDF to upload in place of your digital product according to the following instructions.

Sellers without affiliate programs

Upload an instructional document with access information for your product/service or software

The simplest way to offer your service/product/software is to add a new digital product as you would for a PDF download.

Clearly specify in the description the product or service you're offering and how users will access it.

Then create a simple 1-page PDF or image file that gives the links/coupon codes/access details for your product/service and upload that so that when someone buys your product/service, they'll be able to download the instructions for connecting with you after purchase.

For example, let's say I have a $50 course hosted on Thinkific that I want people to buy on TopMusicMarketplace and then get instant access on my site:

  1. Create a coupon in Thinkific to enable someone to access the course for 100% or $50 discount.

  2. Create a simple 1-page PDF with signup instructions, explaining the coupon code and any links the buyer will need.

  3. Create a new digital product on TopMusicMarketplace with all the regular details about your offering and upload the 1-page PDF with the instructions as the digital product.

  4. Buyers will pay the $50 course fee to TopMusicMarketplace and be able to download the 1-page PDF instructions so they can access their course straight away. Seller then has responsibility of delivering the course access and providing support.

  5. Seller will receive $50 less commission after 14 days.

Here's another example, this time for a $150 piano tuning:

  1. Create a simple 1-page PDF with information about how to contact you for the tuning they've purchased, emails/phone numbers/how to book, etc.

  2. It's recommended that you give the buyer a coupon code or reference to quote so that you know that this enquiry is from TMM.

  3. Create a new digital product on TopMusicMarketplace with all the regular details about your offering and upload the 1-page PDF with the instructions as the digital product.

  4. Buyers will pay the $150 piano tuning fee to TopMusicMarketplace and be able to download the 1-page PDF instructions so they can book their tuning straight away. Seller then has responsibility of delivering the tuning and providing follow-up support.

  5. Seller will receive $150 less commission after 14 days.

Sellers with existing affiliate programs

If you already have a course, program or software with an affiliate program that provides unique trackable links for affiliates, then please contact Tim by email to discuss whether he's interested in participating in your program.

If accepted, there are two options:

  1. Tim may list your product/service himself on the marketplace. If this is the case, there's nothing further you need to do.

  2. You can choose to add the listing for the affiliate product to your own store. If this is the case, please follow the instructions that follow to set this up properly.

  1. Please have the affiliate link (URL) ready with Tim's/TMM's unique affiliate ID

  2. At the top of the Add Product page, select Directory Listing:

3. Fill out the rest of the product details, listing the price you're offering the product/service at.

4. On the right side of the form under Directory Listing detail, paste the affiliate link for your product:

Save your product. When you view the product on the front-end of the site, you'll now see a "buy now" button which will link to the affiliate link to your site:

Each click will trigger your affiliate tracking and commission payable when someone buys.

Please note that in this case, TopMusicMarketplace takes no payment from the buyer and therefore doesn't hold any commissions. The only commissions received are via your affiliate program.
