AudioDraft opens a competition for a top job in Silicon Valley through the new Affiliate Program

"AudioDraft's Affiliate Program is an easy way to earn money by telling friends and business contacts about our exciting audio design contests," said Mr. Teemu Yli-Hollo, CEO, AudioDraft.

AudioDraft, the provider of innovative crowdsourced audio design contests, invites its user community to participate in the new Affiliate Program, launched to reward the community members while boosting AudioDraft’s sales and marketing. As a bonus incentive, AudioDraft has decided to offer the position of the company's next Head of Marketing and Sales to its best affiliates.

AudioDraft enables production companies to create sound design contests that activate a worldwide community of talented composers. Companies decide how much they are willing to pay for the audio productions, and the selected winners gain money prizes, acclaim and visibility for their work.

The new Affiliate Program allows AudioDraft users to earn a share of prize money by encouraging new companies to source their audio design projects through AudioDraft. In addition, the affiliates are invited to compete for a job opening, as AudioDraft has committed to offer the position of Head of Marketing and Sales to the best-performing affiliates. The position, based in Silicon Valley, California, encompasses responsibility for AudioDraft's sales and marketing in the US.

The reward model of AudioDraft's Affiliate Program is simple: Affiliates are rewarded for each contest they bring. The affiliate reward depends on the prize money set by the contest organizer. For a limited time until the end of April 2011, affiliates will be rewarded with 10% of the prize money of each contest they bring to AudioDraft. Affiliate rewards are automatically paid after each contest.

"AudioDraft's Affiliate Program is an easy way to earn money by telling friends and business contacts about our exciting audio design contests," said Mr. Teemu Yli-Hollo, CEO, AudioDraft. “We are truly excited about the opportunity to have a member of our user community join us as the Head of Marketing and Sales in Silicon Valley. We know this is a dream-come-true opportunity for many people in our community and look forward to meeting the top performers.”

AudioDraft has its roots in Finland’s Aalto University and operates in close collaboration with the Aalto Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE). Aalto University and ACE also have a strong role in AudioDraft’s entrance in the US market. “We are currently working together with Stanford University to provide the most promising Aalto startups an access to the necessary knowhow and resources,” said Mr. Kristo Ovaska, the founder of Aalto Entrepreneurship Society and Aalto Venture Garage.

The appointment of the new AudioDraft Head of Marketing and Sales is scheduled to be announced in late April 2011. To learn more about the AudioDraft Affiliate Program, please visit:
