Here’s how to become a Rehearsal affiliate

You love Rehearsal.

You use it all the time.

You even tell other actors about it.

Now, when you tell other actors about Rehearsal, Apple will give you some cash for your referral. And it won’t cost the actors you tell about it a penny more.

Sound good? It’s easy. Here’s the step-by-step way to become an Official Rehearsal Affiliate:

STEP 1: If you’re not already a member, join the Apple iTunes Affiliate Program now – they have their own referral plan:

When you get to the site, click on the blue APPLY NOW button:

STEP 2: Fill out the short application, and submit it.

Apple will reply, usually the next business day, but it might take a few days for you to be approved. Be patient, and you’ll get an email with your information:

Once you get approval you will be assigned a unique Apple Affiliate ID, which will be at the end of all of your links to Rehearsal. More on that in a moment.

STEP 3: Log in, and if you don’t get sent there automatically, go to your dashboard. It will be pretty empty:

That’s OK. Let’s get you a link you can give to others to get Rehearsal.

STEP 4: Click on the Tools menu item at the top of the page:

Then, click on the link in the tool shown as Link Maker:

The link will be pre-configured with the last few characters as your assigned affiliate code. Click on that link to go to the Link Maker itself.

Then, type into the search box “Rehearsal 2”, and choose your country and iOS as the media type, then click on the Search button:

In a moment, you’ll see Rehearsal 2 in the box that appears (you can use either the iPhone link or the iPad link, and ignore any other apps that appear).

Your personalized link will be in the right hand column:

Right-click (or Control-click) on the link in the last column, and choose the command for your browser that copies the link. Here’s what that looks like in Chrome:

Your affiliate link for Rehearsal will now be on your computer’s clipboard.

STEP 5: Paste that link somewhere secure, because that link will be the main link you use.

Here’s what my affiliate URL looks like (yours will have your custom Apple Affiliate ID at the end instead of mine):

When those recipients click on your link, the link will take them to Rehearsal’s page on the iTunes site, or, if they have iTunes already installed on their computer, directly to Rehearsal’s page in the App store. When they buy it, Apple gives you credit for bringing them to the App store, and they pay you 5% for each sale online. You then get paid by the method you set up in the iTunes Affiliate Program.

Rehearsal won’t cost your referrals any extra – Apple just gives you the money for referring people to purchase Rehearsal.

STEP 6: You can put this code on web pages, in emails, and it appears just like any other text link – and if you want to get fancy, you can choose to create other types of links that include graphics and other rich media – explore the Tools page and see what’s possible.

And that’s it! Thank you for liking and using Rehearsal – and for helping us spread the word. As always, break a leg!
