I’ve had a few average weeks recently but I’ve not uploaded anything for a little while compared to normal because I’ve been away. April has started as the slowest month I’ve had since I opened my account. This week especially is on course to be my worst ever week. Very strange. I know sales are unpredictable but when Allegro and Alumo are saying similar things it makes me wonder what’s going on.

I just discovered today that one of my tracks has been used for a new national ad campaign for the UK newspaper The Mirror. A happy/corporate advert with an optical illusion dog. Its a track from my un-exclusive portfolio so it could have been bought from a number of websites. I suspect i probably earned about 10 dollars from it though. Its nice to know big companies like your music but it would also be nice to get a music credit to make up for the tiny amount of cash earned. I suppose thats just how it is though. Someone making a college video can pay the same as a national tabloid newspaper.

Whilst high-end equipment is great to have I don’t think its vital to make the best tracks. Imagination and a good ear can’t be bought. My best selling track with over 1000 sales was composed and recorded using a 2nd hand mac mini, a cheap 10 year old Yamaha electric guitar and it was mixed using cheap speakers from an old CD player. It’s all I had…but it turned out great and was featured by Audiojungle. I then used the money I made from this track to buy new monitors and carried on upgrading from my sales income until I had a decent set-up. What I currently use isn’t top of the range but it works for me so Im happy.

I’ve done this also. I started last year when I improved my mastering technique. I’ve not re-mastered anything for about 2 months but I’ve spent many hours re-working the older tracks. Thanks for this post. It’s reminded me I need to finish what I started! :)

I just tried finding some of my music. Absolute nightmare. If often use the tags “motivational” “indie” and “pop” and loads of $1 cartoon pop noises show up before my music simply because they are called Pop. What about the other two words I entered into the search??? Oh well…. here’s to a quiet February.

Very sorry to hear what happened but its great that you’re getting back on the AJ scene. I agree with everyone that you should start a fresh profile. I have a few ideas regarding your existing tracks. I’ll email you :)

Congratulations to my buddy Simon on being this weeks featured author! Probably the best producer I know (he knows a lot more than me!) so he deserves the recognition. Hopefully the extra dollars start rolling in!

Being featured doesnt disqualify you. Does the opposite! Its a massive boost.
