Congrats man! You can put a tagline underneath your logo now. Enjoy!
Great guy, great music. Congrats Gareth, you rock!!
Two words: Congressional Shutdown. It’s starting to affect the US economy and most of our clients are from there (on this site anyway). They’d better sort things out soon…
I’ve had very little success with other sites so I absolutely recommend going exclusive here. Also it’s less to maintain and keep tabs on.
Absolutely. It’s always best to offer the customer both choices. I personally provide both, as some customers prefer the highest possible bit rate, or wish to use it in an application that won’t accept mp3 formats.
+1. It really isn’t much additional work and why not right? That little detail may make or break a sale so why not get it right?
Sorry to hear that man!
If there is truly someone out there giving 1 star ratings out of spite, this is one very sad person! To go off and spend 17 dollars just to tamper with someone’s hard and honest work! You can do so many great things with 17 dollars: go out for a nice meal, go watch a movie, buy some chocolates for your girlfriend, give it to charity. To spend 17 just to ruin someone’s day is pathetic!
Looking pretty slick man! Real professional, love your work. Did you do it yourself or have someone design it for you?
(Just bumping, as I think it’s pretty important for some of us here…)
I think this is what Marb is referring to:
Basically, Google recently changed and, now, are periodically rolling out updates to their search algorithm, potentially affecting online businesses across the board. Presumably they’ve done this to favour their own advertising, links, platforms, etc.
Just search for ‘Google penguin update’, and you’ll quickly discover the negative impact it’s already had, with many online businesses being completely wiped out by it and reports of lives ruined. The SEO work Envato must commit to, in order to stay on top of this must be tremendous, and personally I think they’re doing a great job of keeping the engine running.
Quite a few other sites I sell on have been hit pretty hard to the point where I’ve been affected personally and sales have almost completely stopped for me and other composers alike. I have my own data charts showing a sudden and steady decline of sales on these other sites, since the Penguin updates started rolling out.Just goes to show how important it is to keep an eye on these things if depending on selling online as it can all change in an instant.
Matt, thanks so much for clearing that up! The economist in me was thinking “either the demand is down or the clientele has gone elsewhere… but where?’ and it turns out this little mess is costing us precious dollarinos… oh well….
Definitely only top authors. The rest of us only have this as supplementary income. Even the top authors earn elsewhere anyway, I’m pretty sure they get a lot of writing gigs from their AudioJungle exposure and they also do some performing gigs too. I really recommend that if you wanna earn from being a full time musician then you gotta spread your eggs into various different baskets.
