Status & Unbiased Information

We spend time researching so you don't need to. Does Kickstarter Affiliate Program exist? Is it abandoned, temporarily offline or did they stop accepting new affiliates? What are the alternatives?

About The Affiliate Program:

Does Kickstarter have an affiliate marketing program?

Unfortunately, no, Kickstarter does not have an active public affiliate marketing program that pays cash.

inactive

They allow creators to use their own referral programs. This means project creators can offer incentives, such as discounts or physical goods, to motivate backers to get the word out about their campaign.

So, what are your options?

About The Company:

Kickstarter is an American public benefit corporation that maintains a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity.

The company's stated mission is to "help bring creative projects to life".

Kickstarter has received more than $5 billion in pledges from 17+ million backers to fund 500,000+ projects, such as films, music, stage shows, comics, journalism, video games, technology, publishing, and food-related projects.

People who back Kickstarter projects are offered tangible rewards or experiences in exchange for their pledges. This model traces its roots to subscription model of arts patronage, where artists would go directly to their audiences to fund their work.

Kickstarter launched on April 28, 2009, by Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler, and Charles Adler.

It is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Income tip for affiliates:

APDB Team recommends diversification in two ways.

First, within your affiliate links. Try various affiliate programs simultaneously and do not stick with one only. For example, Amazon can slash its rates even further tomorrow. Be prepared for unforeseen risks. Check the affiliate training & tools to become a super affiliate:

Second (this one is for website owners), use display ads near your affiliate links. Google AdSense is the go-to source for many. However, AdSense provides one of the lowest RPMs (page revenue per thousand impressions) in the industry. There is a legit way to triple (yes, 3X, and even more) your AdSense income.
