When I travel to an event held by Envato, I’ll buy the plane tickets with the money I earn from Envato. :)

One way you can eliminate the seemingly long hours involved with getting an item reviewed is to keep uploading new items all the time, like you would on a conveyer belt. If you keep this up for a short while, you’ll have things reviewed regularly and time will not be an issue anymore. :)

Here is my Explosion sound. :)

http://audiojungle.net/item/explosion/3065538

It’s the only item I have right now with a rating, but it’s also my #1 bestseller. A lot of people would appreciate having this as a Free File.

first let me say AJ is a great site and community for many reasons, but…....

i thought little bits more often would be better then a few bigger bits every once in while. now i don’t think that to be the case.

i thought of maybe switching my AJ account profile to non-exclusive to give me flexibility with my content, but it doesn’t seem worth doing that given the lower percentage split.

originally i thought after depositing some good music on AJ there would be more action by now. i uploaded very judiciously after the first batch, and it seems like sales are dependent on more uploading. i can easily say there is a direct correlation between the two.

what’s interesting is, only 6 out of the 29 tracks i have upload have no sales. again, i believe this ties back into uploading.

i have 55 sales – all of which i am grateful for. i love it when things move, but we don’t know who we are selling to, if they are return customers or new. its all far to vague.

my thoughts are, there is plenty of good music here already. the most successful AJ authors are the ones who were here first. first one to show up wins. its always that way in any business.

bottom line, i don’t believe its my content because most of it has been purchased at some point, so its been proven out to at least a small degree.

i could just let it roll and colle3ct some tipping money. nothing wrongs with that. it works like clock work which is actually really appealing, but where i’ve been and where i come from dictates that if were working for tips now, maybe we should find another place to play.

thoughts?

The difference between a successful author and an unsuccessful author is not how much time they’ve spent here. They put more time and effort into their work as time progressed and that’s what made the difference for them. Success is not something you get, it’s something you become. It’s something you attract by becoming an attractive person.

If you want better results than what you’re getting now, make it a habit to go the extra mile. Follow the principle of continuous improvement, even if you don’t get immediate results. It’s like compound interest; it doesn’t look very impressive at first, but once you make self-improvement a habit, your results will get better and better and then a lot better and a lot better.

Do you have to stay on Audiojungle? No. You can go somewhere else if you want. But if you’re leaving due to the fact that you’re not happy with the results you’re getting, you can’t blame Audiojungle. I was in the same position as you are about a year ago. I wasn’t getting good results and I made some pretty dumb decisions that almost cost me my future on Audiojungle. I’m so glad I came to my senses before any damage was done.

Think of it this way: If you’re having a slump, reverse the picture and treat that as your new reality. Expect something wonderful around the corner, every time you have a slump. Life has its ups and downs, but you can control the general direction you go in the long run.

You know, I’ve always wondered what the relationship between Audiojungle and Videohive authors tends to be like. I heard many times that it’s a highly collaborative relationship. But now reading this thread, it looks like there’s some strain on the side of the Videohive community.

I don’t know how many authors get spammed by Audiojungle authors, but I just want to say something as an Audiojungle author.

If someone tries to sell you something so many times that it gets on your nerves, ignore the person who’s spamming you, but just remember that these people, who resort to things like this, hoping for quick sales, do not represent the Audiojungle community. This sort of behavior is not what we collectively stand for and we would much rather attract clients and buyers to us, rather than chasing after them.

I think it’s a wonderful thing when authors from different marketplaces find value in each other as a community and help each other out when we can, and I really would like to help maintain a positive working relationship between these two communities. The last thing I want to see is for Videohive authors as a whole to start thinking that Audiojungle authors as a whole are unsavory, annoying and untrustworthy, because we’re really not like that at all. The ones you hear stories about the most tend to be part of a small minority of people who have their priorities in the wrong order and their heads screwed on the wrong way.

By all means, if an Audiojungle author tries to sell you something in a distasteful way, ignore him, but just remember that people with a good demeanor and people with a misdemeanor boil in the same pot. Nobody should be judged based on the actions of someone else.

I wish you all the best! :)

Hello, guys! Yesterday I finished the design for my profile page and products page. Appreciate the work done, thanks :) http://videohive.net/user/Raduchits

Looks clean, simple, and professional. :)

One thing I might suggest is adding a brief sentence or two about yourself, what you do, what you specialize in, and how you can help your target audience. That’s especially important if you’re a niche specialist like me. For example, I design magical sound effects and I love what I do. As a result, it shows up in my work. I center my portfolio and profile around magic sounds.

If you haven’t done so already, try making your profile description as clear about what you do best as possible. If a buyer doesn’t see what he’s looking for on the profile, he/she may take the time to examine your portfolio more carefully if they know you might have something in there that’s relevant to their needs and wants.

As I said before, your profile design is great, especially in the way of images. But try adding a few lines of text in there. Hope this helps. :)

Why not just ask the review staff what they consider to be high quality? I also think you can learn a lot if you study what’s being featured on Graphicriver and learn what they do so well.

and we’re seeing a major drop in sales across a lot of different users.
Please explain what you mean by this. I think I’m missing something. How does what happened affect sales? ...because the last 2-3 days have been excruciatingly slow. :/

How many buyers really want to do business on a day where they face the threat of being hacked?
