Linkfire (NASDAQ: LINKFI.ST) has signed a new marketing and affiliate agreement with Amazon Music, which is intended to support the growth of the company’s traffic commissions.
The new agreement further supports Linkfire’s position as a leading marketing platform for music and entertainment. Through the new agreement, Amazon Music leverages a custom strategy for user acquisition that has been designed with Linkfire to cover multiple touchpoints of fan interaction across its vast and growing discovery network.
Linkfire’s affiliate agreements monetize traffic when consumers sign up to a digital service provider or transact through a smart link. The new agreement with Amazon Music supports the monetization of Linkfire’s traffic.
Linkfire will provide updates on the financial impact of the new agreement in its forthcoming financial reports.
Amazon Music reimagines music listening by enabling customers to unlock millions of songs and thousands of curated playlists and stations with their voice. With Amazon Music, Prime members have access to ad-free listening of 2 million songs at no additional cost to their membership. Listeners can also enjoy the premium subscription service, Amazon Music Unlimited, which provides access to more than 75 million songs and the latest new releases. Customers also have free access to an ad-supported selection of top playlists and stations on Amazon Music.
Lars Ettrup, CEO and co-founder at Linkfire, comments:
“We are proud to announce this multi-year affiliate agreement with Amazon Music. Stronger affiliate collaborations enable the growth of our traffic commissions, as the majority of consumer connections still remain unmonetized. This agreement further strengthens our global market position within entertainment discovery and also supports our strategic ambition to further increase traffic monetization. In 2021, Linkfire connected 1.6 billion consumers to music and entertainment services and this agreement means that more fans across the globe can find the content they love.”
Andrea Arcari, Chief Business Development Officer at Linkfire, adds:
“Amazon has built impressive and strong devices and services and Amazon Music contributes to this by supporting the retention and growth of the subscription business at Amazon. Linkfire is now happy to provide this affiliate model that now supports Amazon Music to drive the growth of their global subscriber base.“
