No permission is needed when promoting audiojungle watermarked music for referral income. I could care less if people wanted to promote my music at no cost to me, I hope they get referral money for getting me sales.

If they gave this info out everyone would use the same words and probably abuse it to the point where people wouldn’t accurately describe their songs rendering the search useless to buyers.

Plus I like the fact that those who study keywords and research can get an advantage over someone just being spoon fed this info. I wish they would take tag words used on our items out of public view.

As I’ve noticed this time rather won’t shorten soon. Biggest commercial SFX library entering AJ and floods the queue. Hope they won’t eat us :)

This is probably part of the reason if not all. I went through the recent uploads and it was indeed a huge library dumped all of the Jungle all at once.

5 sales here so far, off to a good start. Although the weekend will slow things down a bit.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks for the explanation Matt, some good points as always. I’ll give it a deeper look.

This may be the answer Dejans. Official Copyrighting. Seems pretty easy and cheap, and I’m sure these content iD services would back right off if you showed that proof to them and would release your music if someone else id’s is as theirs falsely.

Yeah at this point I wouldn’t even think about going near it. Sounds like a possible headache inducer for everyone.

Maybe in the future when it becomes common knowledge for buyers that they need to submit the license to YouTube, and YouTube would know not to even question the audiojungle license making a smooth user experience.

Although I really wish we could use AdRev to manually target just people using my un-licensed watermarked version, would love to make money off them.

When I was new I complained on the forums because I wasn’t having much success until I decided to do something about it. I took 2 months away from music and learned how to make a website, studied search ranking Seo, keywords and made social promotional sites work for me.

It really paid off as before I had my main money maker “hit” song I was having not huge, but steady sales on my music from referral links plus making referral income. I see some of the guys posting here have not a single referral because if you did you would have at least a level one badge. Even if someone comes here through your link and buys someone else’s song you still make money.

I still think Audiojungle creates as fair of a market place the best they can but like someone mentioned it’s human nature to want or feel secure buying what everyone else is. Almost every site I have ever shopped on has had the option to filter by sales, rankings, or the default search is on best selling. Its a no-brainer in business to do it like that. But others have come here as new authors and overcome that with relative ease.

I recommend searching the forums for promotion topics and give some of the ideas a shot. Audiojungle can only do so much until you have to do things yourself.

Read this thread just posted, a lot of success for being here just one year and with just 30 items, Congrats. http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/digital-high-five-and-beer-to-everyone-/124354
