It may be a stupid question but I’ll fire it away: Did someone experienced goose bumps after composing a song and listened to it over and over again? This is the first time I experience such a thing and it’s quite a nice feeling. Let me know your answers, I really want to know if there is someone that had experience such a thing and if that song brought sales for them.

With one of my tracks, yes. I knew that it was something special after I got goosebumps listening to it. I won’t mention the name (for obvious self promotion reasons) but its one of my top sellers, starts off with a solo piano motif, builds up to a euphoric choral ending and begins with the letter “F”. :D As Erick said, while listening to it, I also couldn’t believe that I’d actually composed it. It was a total break from my normal compositional style too. I really put every bit of creative energy into that track while I was composing it. :)

I’ve tried to emulate it a couple of times but you just can’t. Every track is so unique!
I know it! http://audiojungle.net/item/freedom/4666505?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=Gae47

Well done that man!

And StoneColed. Your music is wonderful! Believe in yourself!

I do feel that only certain types of tracks are capable of inducing goosebumbs though. Those tracks that build up to a big crescendo of course have the best chance, because they have that feeling of inevitability and lift the human spirit up, making you feel like anything is possible. :)
Freedom is an Awesome Track, glad I revisited this post so I could hear it! Great Mix too!

I missed this post.

Thanks so much StoneColed! I was definitely pleased with how that track came out. :)

Raquel, I was going to say to try to increase your portfolio to help with visibility too, but you beat me to it! :)

I guess for those of us who enjoy composing, uploading regularly and building up our portfolios is one good solution for visibility. :)

Also, it’s not always “how many” are looking, but “who” is looking. For example: I have had nearly 200 viewers in the last week viewing the track that sold a “music broadcast & film” license, but not one of them has purchased it. Other tracks with just a few views have sold though.

Secretly though, I’m hoping that some of the other 200 are actually just killing time, saving up their money to buy more “music broadcast & film” licenses…ha ha!

Today I had another hard rejection on videohive. I’m tired of trying, it’s a waste of time, so I think I’ll focus on just the music. I think what strategy to follow, but I lost a lot of time trying to do vh projects. At least two of them I think they deserved to be there (Kids Gallery and Dark Maze Trailer, you can see them on my youtube account, my video templates playlist, if you are curious). I will try to use them in any way as a promotion. I do not rule give away as freebies. I hope to start tomorrow with a new plan and new energy. I’m so tired now.
Hey, you are a great composer, I don’t know anything about videomaking, but I do know about music and you are doing really well, so keep going and try not to be disheartened, you are very talented. Dig deep and get stuck into the next masterpiece! x

Raquel, stay positive. Your two top sellers have 70 odd sales between them…more than mine. Keep on writing great tracks like these and you’ll do great, I’m sure. I think sometimes we try to be too diverse when maybe we should focus on our strong genres and do more tracks in a similar style. I know I do! :)
