Asset Store announces new Affiliate Program

March 17, 2016 in Asset Store

The Unity Asset Store is announcing a new Affiliate Program, which will empower the global Unity community to discuss and promote how they’re building their dreams using the Asset Store. Pre-Registration is now live!

The goal of the new program is to leverage the power of Unity’s global community. Now, Asset Store publishers will benefit from a new discovery method while developers will be empowered to share how they solved their toughest problems. Affiliated content creators will now have the power to embed Asset Store content directly to their blogs or social media platforms using Unity’s Affiliate link-maker. Another benefit of participation is that through this content and these links, the Affiliate partners will earn commissions on all qualifying sales.

“It’s really just another avenue for developers who use the Asset Store and publishers to find one another,” says Clive Downie, CMO of Unity. “Plus, it offers a way for anyone who curates content, as an affiliate, to generate some passive income while contributing to the community.”

Bringing relevant Assets into focus

We really hope that the community uses our Affiliates Link-maker in combination with our recent release of Lists. With Lists, users can highlight, group, and include information about packages on the Asset Store.

One way Lists could be used is to incorporate them in the stories cómmunity members share online. For example, Bruno Toledano, community manager with Crema Games, recently described in his Made With Unity story “Even Immortal Rednecks Need Some Help” how his team used the Unity Asset Store to elevate the quality of their game. With the introduction of the Affiliate Program, Bruno could add the twelve assets to a list and then use the link-maker to embed the list directly to his article, earning their development team revenue on all qualifying sales generated from that link.

Becoming an Affiliate

If you’re interested in participating, you can pre-register to become an affiliate in the upcoming Beta release of the Unity Asset Store Affiliate Program. Apply now to become an affiliate.

    This would be awesome! Especially for tutorial authors or publishers like me who collaborate with other asset publishers. When I post screenshots on my website or announce a new pack on my website I always like to link to other assets I used when making the screenshots. I used to do affiliate marketing several years ago and helped moderate the affiliate forums at cafepress.com for a while but due to life circumstances, I wasn’t able to keep up with all my websites. Very excited to see this coming to the asset store, both for those of us doing cross promotion and for the exposure it will hopefully bring to some of us through promotion by professional affiliate marketers!

    This is great news. I write about and mention unity assets often on my blog posts at gamedevelopment.biz and the opportunity to highlight relevant assets to the articles I write and get a commission for sales made from links to those assets will be a huge intensive to put more focus on quality articles that reference more of the the top quality assets in the asset store. This is a good decision and I’m looking forward to the launch. This program will have a huge impact on the landscape of game dev blogging and resource websites by creating revenue oppertunityes for bloggers and asset publishers.

    Customers save money: the services included in AffiloTools are normally sold as individual monthly subscriptions. We have combined them all into one low monthly subscription.
    AffiloTools helps raise your search engine rankings: our link research tool lets you find new, powerful links that Google loves. Our backlink analyser lets you spy on your competitors, and snipe their links. And our website health checker alerts you to any onsite issues you are having that could be holding your site back.
    AffiloTools makes you more productive: most affiliates require multiple tools to monitor their websites, social media acounts and earnings. We display all of the important information from Google Analytics, ClickBank, Facebook and Twitter in their dashboard so they only have to go to AffiloTools and not 4 different sites.
    AffiloTools uncovers hidden market opportunities: our link finder, keyword and domain research tools let you uncover keywords, links and domains that your competitors have missed.

    Hello,

    I have an idea:

    “Asset Store Portal for work made through contracts”
    I accept a percentage of the profits if Unity would like to give ;).
