Finally…and this is incredibly disturbing to me. In reading through the You Tube policies, if I am flagged…and submit a ticket with the license information…resolution still depends on copyright holder action or inaction. Based on what I perceive to be an incredible lack of empathy among this community, I do not have a lot of confidence that my rights will be observed. So…it would seem with every single purchase…every one…I end up having to prove that I am not guilty…to the satisfaction of the copyright holder. I know of no other industry that is so hostile to the customer.
While i do understand the frustration of buying music where you think absolutely NO restrictions are applied, i have to tell you that in many other industries you have to present a proof of purchase if asked for.
As example, if you buy somehting in a supermarket and when walking out of the store someone asking you to present a proof of purchase, you’ll have to do so. Same with software, cars and so on. It’s just a logical routine and we are all used to it i guess.
As other have said before, it’s not our (the artists) fault that YT and other companies just allow every single thing to be uploaded and only reacts if someone complains (trough AdRev or similar services). It’s the greed of this companies to have as much content as possible to attract visitors and sell advertising. I guess about 30% to 50% on Youtube is not copyright cleared and many people profit from that, except the artist!
let me start with 2 questions :
- How many musicians / bands do you know ?
- How many of them would love to sell their music independently (own webpages etc.) ?
So, why isn’t there a useful and realworld template or/and eCommerce plugin for this purpose ? I know, there are some templates and plugins available, but without offending anyone, they are quite useless and probably made from good developers, but without the knowledge of how a mp3 store should work.
I have studied the top 3 mp3 webstores and created a documentation on how this could be done with Wordpress and Woocommerce. Everything neatly documented and illustrated in PDF files, some functions even already build (and collected from existing codes and plugins).
What exactly is my point for creating this Thread ?
If you are a experienced developer in the fields of WP and Woo and feel this would be a option for you to generate an income from a template / plugin that is for sure on demand, please drop me a line with a few examples of your work and we could chat to see how we could team up for this. I’d also be willing to give the concept away for free to someone who is really keen on making this happen
Thanks everyone and looking forward to hear from you.
If your pasted text looks exactly formated as the screenshot, it will work unless your site has a issue fetching the .js script.
You pasted code is missing the div attribute, but that might happen when pasting a code into Envatos text window.
sorry for the late reply, i have been away for over a week. I will get back to you with the demos of the existing song in a private message.
Thanks again for your interrest and i wish everyone a lot of creativity ….
Can you post an example of the shortcode or url you are trying to embed ?
I experience a different “problem” with sales. No matter how much promotion i do, no matter how much i upload – my sales come every month to a stop as soon as a certain amount has been reached. Be it in the mid of the month or towards the end. All runs smooth until this numbers are on my stats …. coincidence ? illuminati ?
well, i’m not looking for someone who sings in the most complicated techniques and vibratos all over the place, but for someone who really loves this kind of music and wants to express feelings etc. with it. It has to be “real” as it is not a pop project
Anyone who feels he could / would work on this is highy welcome and i will send the link to the existing songs i have already for the project, so you can hear what it will be about. I’d also love to hear 2-3 examples of your work befor we start on the tracks
Thanks again and i’m looking forward to hear from you.
i know there are quite a few talented singers amongst the AJ Authors and i’d like to ask if any of these singers share the love for moody Trip Hop and Deep Electronica stuff ?
If so, i’d be happy to collaborate for some of my work in progress. It’s not only meant to be sold on AJ (not a huge demand for this type of music here), but on iTunes, Beatport and so on.
For any further details please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. Looking forward to hear from you.
