After the second half turnaround, November is starting to look pretty good now with 14 sales so far. That’s a 100% increase on last year.
to get a better idea what I’m looking for, here it is:https://soundcloud.com/uj-pro/christmas-sleigh-ride-preview-no-vocals
Fantastic UJ-pro..love it!
Lets hope you get a great voice for this as it truly deserves one!
Crazy! A first sale on a 17 month old track after selling an 18 month old track earlier today.
Amazing..just when I think I’ll never make a sale again I have 5 sales (including a pack and an 18 month old track) over 2 consecutive days.
11 so far!
That’s a great idea about putting the AdRev message at the bottom of each track. I have the adrev.net/contact-us link on my profile page only at the moment but I think I might follow your example and do something similar with some of my top sellers.
Thanks for the reply Matt.
My main concern really is how it affects the genuine user as of course, none of us want to annoy our clients.
So how does it work for them? Do they just have ads appear on their video? Ads that they can choose to either ignore or dispute using their licenses for proof? I’d hate to think that their videos get blocked in some way. I’d imagine that if its just a case of banner ads appearing, most users would probably just think that it was YoTube ads and nothing to do with AudioJungle possibly. I’m interested to know the process for legit users.
Also, can I ask you, do you wait for the clients to stop the ads or e-mail you or do you put a stop on the ads yourself sometimes when you know the user is genuine? It’s so tempting to just leave them to generate money and then wait for a response, as we never really know who is legit and who isn’t do we?
OK, so after 4 months of waiting, finally AdRev found some of my tracks. It was great (and surprising) to see where my music was being used.
Now, up till this point, my philosophy with AdRev had always been “if the music doesn’t have the watermark on it then I must assume it is genuine”. With that thought in mind, I submitted all the videos into the “do not use ads on this video” option.
Overnight though, I had an epiphany. Don’t worry…I’m seeing a doctor soon! I remembered that one of the videos was playing my music, complete and in full quality, sans any dialogue or sound effects in their video. Of course, any Tom, Dick or Harriet (got to be PC :)) can now rip/record this track in full quality and use it somewhere else! From now on I’ll let AdRev do its thing and risk the wrath of some clients.
So, what’s the answer to protect our music from piracy or is it just one of those impossible tasks?
