Here we go again! A BIG thumbs down to automatic watermarking. I want control over where the watermarks go as well as well as their audio levels. One size does not fit all when it comes to the volume of watermarks when laid over music. If you have a lot of difficulty adding watermarks to your demo, it may be an audio skill you need to be working on to improve.

First two of many, I’m sure. Your stuff is tasty! Welcome.


Congratulations! I’ll celebrate with you (not to steal your thunder) but I just sold my (first) 2 tracks, though not extended licenses, today! I wish more success for you.

Oh, they exist. I had four last month and I’d never come close to that before. Even rarer (for me) is the “referral cut” and I woke up to my first one of those this morning!

Keep hope alive!!!

Oops, I saw “Gari” and thought it was aimed at me…I ‘m referring to the Equator D5 monitors.


For their size they put out better bass information than any monitors I’ve experienced before. I had a sub-woofer on my wish list but I don’t need it now.


I have a pair of KRK Rokit 5s, which replaced my [blown] Tannoys.
Hi Gari, yes, I have these monitors. I find they can lack some bottom end and in turn my mixes became overly bassy… Although, I am getting used to them and compensating for this. Overall, good.

If you read the trades, you’ve probably seen one of the many rave review of the new Equator D5 speakers. $300 a pair. Just got mine. IT’S ALL TRUE .

Hey that’s a very nice video. I wondered about using stills. Where did you get those? I figured you had to pay to get decent stock photos.


Hi, Garry! I don’t know how my video on You Tube effect on sale. I’m just interesting to create videos for my music. I don’t use AudioJungle video loops. For my video, I use various photos. For example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul-5QM8urwM&list=PLF9D2763E8B540CA3&index=1&feature=plpp_video

Cool, 330,000. You did the work and it paid off for you, Tim. You’re what they call one of those “shining examples!”


Hey Garry!

I think it’s an awesome idea and has helped me HUGE ….but also once traffic comes be prepared to deal with all the people complaining about the watermark. At first I just ignored it but after thousands of comments about the watermark it starts to get really annoying!

Other then that it can be a great way to spread the word. One thing I’ve found though is that the videos need to be moderately entertaining as well. What I mean is, not every video should be the exact same visuals or people get bored really fast. Also YouTuber’s can be quite harsh sometimes.

I decided to upload one video only a year ago and the views have snowballed to over 330,000 + total views right now, with around 1,000 new subscribers. Compared with many others this is nothing, but I am glad I started is my point – because I almost blew of YouTube as a valid source of advertisement… and it has become the single best way I now spread the word about music!

Good luck man!

Good advice! Thanks.


I have got a few referral fees from youtube and soundcloud. Maybe just a small handful have turned into sales for me. But I bet someone got a sale. Which means I helped someone here get a sale. That is one important factor for promoting on various other sites. It benefits the whole community. If we all were out there, the site traffic here could potentially increase dramatically. If I can make one important suggestion. Put your ref link first line in the Youtube video description. Otherwise it will be hidden from viewers and they will be less likely to click on the link.

OK, I’ve downloaded (and converted) some awesome AudioJungle video loops and am ready to start making some “videos” and posting them on YouTube to increase my music sales. Before I start I’d like to get the opinions of those here who have already taken the YouTube plunge.

Quite simply, has it been worth your while?

Thanks, Garry O’Neal
