Disc Makers recently kicked off its new Studio Partner Program, the popular program that rewards studios for referring business to Disc Makers. The new and improved Studio Partner Program offers a tiered commission structure with Standard, Gold, and Platinum levels, and a “My Account” web page where studios can electronically submit new referrals, monitor current projects, and track the status of their commission.
The centerpiece of the new Studio Partner Program is the chance to earn increased commissions. In the new tiered commission structure, studios that refer more CD replication projects to Disc Makers are rewarded with higher commission rates. The highest performing studios – Platinum Partners – make $125 per referral when they refer projects, and the chance to earn extra commission on larger projects ($2,500 projects or more). Commissions start at $50 for Standard Partners with one referral, and $100 for Gold Partners, credited with two to four referrals. Each new referral will also make the studio eligible for monthly prize giveaways from the biggest manufacturers in the business.
Disc Makers is also launching a new customer service web page that allows Studio Partners to track their referrals online, 24/7. The new “My Account” webpage is a secure site that allows studios to upload new referrals and client information, monitor the status of a project, and track both their total commission and status of upcoming commission check mailings. Disc Makers has made the entire Studio Partner referral process as simple as possible, from program sign up to commission checks.
As with the previous program, Studio Partners and their referral bands each receive a commemorative plaque from Disc Makers’ celebrating the completion of their CD projects. In addition, Studio Partners will receive exclusive support materials from Disc Makers including discount coupons (for post-production and mastering services), Disc Makers’ catalogs, pre-paid UPS mailers for new CD projects, 37 Recording Tips brochures, and How to Get Radio Airplay guides.
