What is our product?
TunePocket is one of the most affordable royalty free music libraries for video creators, filmmakers, freelance videographers, YouTubers, and marketers.
The users can choose between an annual subscription with unlimited access to all our music and sound effects and pay-as-you-go membership that grants 5 downloads at a time.
All downloads come with all-in-one commercial royalty-free license, so it can be used in commercial and business projects, monetized YouTube channels, as well as paid freelance work done for clients.
New music is uploaded daily.
How does our affiliate program work
If you refer a user who purchases a new TunePocket subscription within 30 days of the referral, you will receive $25 for every Business subscription, $10 for every Personal subscription, and $5 for every Pay As You Go plan sold via your referral link.
How to become an affiliate?
Fill the affiliate application. Please note that your application must be approved before you become our affiliate partner.
How to refer users
You refer users by publishing links to TunePocket Web pages and including your affiliate referral code in the link. For example:
Where “your-affiliate-slug” is your default affiliate slug (a 6 letter code like dOjrhYc) that you were assigned when your application was approved.
You can also create your own custom slug to replace the default.
NEW: We now support clean links that do NOT require using a referral slug. Thus, your referral gets counted even if the user manually removes your affiliate slug from the link!
How to generate referral links
You can link to any page on TunePocket, including our blog posts, landing pages, music search results, playlists, and individual song pages.
To link to the home page:
To link to a blog post:
To link to a promo page:
To link to search results:
To link to a playlist:
To link to a specific song:
Don’t forget to replace “your-affiliate-slug” with your affiliate code!
💡 Use the referral links generator in your Affiliate Area to avoid mistakes.
If a user clears the cookies, this user will no longer be tracked.
Once a user clicks your referral link, this user has 30 days to purchase the subscription before the referral cookie expires.
The referral program is subject to the affiliate agreement which, gives us the right to review all referrals and to reject the referrals that violate the policy.
Where to post referral links
Here are some ideas:
Create blog posts or guest blog on topics related to video editing, music licensing, YouTube, video marketing, small business advise, finding music for commercial use, royalty-free music subscription, and other relevant topics. Suggest TunePocket as a music provider.

Create a video walk-through explaining your viewers how and why they should use TunePocket.
Are you a subscriber? Write a case study explaining how TunePocket helped you to solve YOUR problem.

Promote a discount or a sales event. See all current promotions.
Answer relevant questions in forums and on question & answers sites like Quora, StackExchange or Yahoo Answers and use your referral link in the replies.
Download free watermarked previews of some of our songs and create a themed music collection (wedding, sports, yoga, and so on). Post it in your blog or on SoundCloud with referral links pointing to the original songs on TunePocket. Here’s an example.
Please note it is expressly forbidden to post non-watermarked versions of our songs anywhere online.
