Still waiting to see what move will Envato make, if any…
I agree totally. I know that some customers that need stock audio actually avoid AJ because they think something is wrong with the prices. They look too low to be genuine to them. They probably assume that low price equals low quality which is not true. AJ has great authors that definitely DESERVE higher prices.
Amazing achievement. Congrats!!!
I am amazed that anyone would not want to raise prices. Wordpress themes are $50 now. Their prices went up but they are still selling like crazy. After Effects projects top out at $30. I think $14 for a piece of music HIGHLY DEVALUES the importance music brings to a project.
I know it is a great feeling. I wish you many more.
I agree that we need some increase in the prices. I don’t think that a raise of 30 % for example will hurt sales much or even at all. Everything is getting more expensive as someone said above and yet the prices stay the same on AJ. I am not going to even start really whining about the price of sound FX. I mean you go around town in dark alleys, carrying lot of expensive equipment which subject to theft and mugging, wait till the right time comes for recording and when your fx gets accepted for sale on AJ you get a price of 1 dollar.
I mean come on, a pack of bubble gums costs more in the place I live…
