I have an exclusive account, non-exclusive account, and a collaborative account with someone else (also exclusive). It gets a bit crazy having to manage multiple profiles/social media, but I think to a certain degree, it has helped cast a wider net for buyers, and aids in cross-promotion between profiles.
Not so sure it would be beneficial to separate by genre, but I’m pretty sure it’s allowed.
“Strive For Success!”http://audiojungle.net/item/strive-for-success/3778117
I started about when you did, and I have 26 sales from 51 items (1 exclusive profile, 1 non-exclusive profile). Not exactly huge numbers, but that’s about .5 sales per item. You currently have .3 sales per item. If you make more music…you will sell more. Simple as that. The higher the quality, and the more genres you cover, and the more you promote yourself, the better your sales will do as well. I’m not happy with my sales numbers, but I’m not giving up any time soon. Especially considering how much better I’ve gotten since I began, and how much I’ve learned. I’m about to dive into “uke” territory as well…Hopefully it isn’t “too little too late.”
I want to promote JProctor Music!
He is brand new to stock music, has one killer track, and just sold his first copy. He is one to keep your eye on.http://audiojungle.net/item/upbeat-piano-and-strings/4996579?sso?WT.ac=portfolio_item&WT.seg_1=portfolio_item&WT.z_author=jessemproctor
From a mixing standpoint, I would:
- Lessen the dynamic range of the track (hit it semi-hard with compression, boost overall volume) - Lower volume of Watermark - It’s a bit dark sounding, so maybe a boost around 8-10k in the synth, 5-6k in the piano - The sub hit isn’t very “defined”, so people won’t hear it much unless they have a good system
That’s all I can think of (being nit-picky), but overall I’m surprised it was rejected.
The only request I’ve received was from someone who barely spoke english, so I had a hard time even understanding the e-mail request. I think he wanted me to mix his song & one of mine into a video for some UN peace program….The wording was either poorly written, or was possibly a bot of some kind.
Either way, I didn’t write back.
I’ve also taken Berklee College of Music online classes (a couple years back) in electronic composition, and they were very useful, though a bit expensive (over 1k per course).
I recommend going the free route. Even if you pay for a course, the heavy lifting will be done by you, sitting in your room for hours on end…Pretty much what most of us do anyway.
Weren’t you JUST a featured author?...and you don’t think you’re getting as much homepage exposure as you deserve?
What were the reasons for it not being approved in the first place?
They said it was too experimental/quirky.
It’s an electronic track, and a bit of a hybrid of styles, which is why it was rejected, I’m sure.
It was one the first tracks I wrote with intent to sell, so my instincts for commercialized music weren’t very good. Even in a few months I think I’ve gotten a much better grasp on what sells here and what doesn’t.
