Nice vids bro. Can you explain a bit more about the linking. I didnt understand it. Thx
In your video, you link to your item using a link http://audiojungle.net/item/modern-meets-classic/6820109 whick is working correctly, but you could gain more money linking with http://audiojungle.net/item/modern-meets-classic/6820109?ref=WolfsteR
To get more information, search on AJ forums and site for “Referrals”. It’s an affiliate program which any author can use to promote AJ items and earn extra money for newly registered users if they spend money buying items.
My concern is that from 05.02.2014, I haven’t received any mail whatsoever, regardless if an item was held, approved or rejected. I opened a ticket today and hopefully I will get an answer. I will let you know when I get an answer.
That is exactly what happened to me 1 year ago! But the ticket resulted with nothing, they tried to explain to me what holding an item means, what I’ve had known already. More weeks later, I’ve started a forum thread and a reviewer finally cleaned this up and said it was not a hold but an error in the system.
This is why I’m seriously afraid it might be happening also with my current upload!
A good approximation of how much exclusive licensing of AJ track would be worth can be calculated using some economy. The exact value could be found using “discounted cash flow” method, it means, a sum of all future sales discounted for the reference interest rates. The more simple way, is to use a fixed “P/E ratio”, for example 10, and so calculate the total sales that song can generate in 10 years.
By multiplying the sales amount if made during last year by 10, we can estimate the value of a song, calculated the same way as it is for other money making assets in economy. Our songs are indeed money making assets so this approach seems just right. For more information about economy background I spoke about, search for “discounted cash flow” and “P/E ratio”.
I never thought about including such exclusive licencing model for AJ tracks, and I’m not sure if AJ would be interested in adding this kind of licence. But I thought about something similar, related to treating the tracks as assets having some value. So, users could be allowed to auction the tracks. One user would buy other user’s song this way, including the rights to sell it on AJ. It would be a good investment to buy an AJ track that makes a lot of sales, and the author might like to receive a bigger amount of money once instead of waiting for years for this money to accumulate, and AJ would get a percentage of the transaction value.
In this model, the buyer of the song would also be allowed to delete the song from AJ and use it exclusively if they wish so.
If item is held for a few days, it’s normal time for additional review and I happened often to me. But if it stays on hold for weeks, this may be the same error I suffered a year ago. Support didn’t really help back then, but one of our great reviewers did.
About a year ago, I had a strange story with two submitted tracks that appeared to be put to reviewers hold (what is quite understandable), and even confirmed by Support that they are on hold, but finally, after weeks of delay, a reviewer has checked it for me and it turned out that they were not on hold, but they stuck in the system because of an error.
Did it happen to anyone recently? I’m asking, because at the moment I have my recent track put on reviewers hold, and I’m getting anxious whether it’s a correct hold or an error. If it’s a hold, I hope it’s accepted or rejected in no more than few more days
I’ve made a few videos so far, like:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw68GH7SRw0
but I’m spending last 2 years making something much more impressive visually for one of my songs, something that will look like:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_w7izceKjo
BTW guys, don’t forget to add ref=username parameters when you’re linking from youtube videos to your tracks. It’s extra 30% cash if the buyer is new to AudioJungle.
Nice to hear that you was so inspired by Frozen song I also find it inspiring, but on animation field.
As for the idea of writing the music not bound to commercial limitations, let me suggest an alternative. You just keep a commercial portfolio on AudioJungle, and add some songs there from time to time, and at the same time, create the non-commercial music you love and publish it on SoundCloud, YouTube and other places, with either Creative Commons licence or with All Rights Reserved.
You can gain a lot of traffic and followers this way! You will earn people admiration and respect with great non-commercial music you create, without worrying about rejections or sales. And a small part of this traffic will lead to sales of your commercial items.
This one is also very energetic and in style of synth pop:http://audiojungle.net/item/synthetic-liberation/1185010
I think you might also contact the author and send the link to your project. Most authors would be just happy to post this link on their social networks, bringing an additional traffic to your project.
