Yes! Please! +1

Actually, I feel there should be more subcategories for everything, makes it easier for customers to find what they want…

It’s all about creating a niche. If you work hard and create a strong portfolio for the type of music you want to sell you will sell. Keep creating electronic/house tracks and keep doing them to your style. Eventually you will be known as THE go to guy for that thing and you’ll see sales rise. Look at all the top authors, even though none of them stick to ONE style, they do have a specific style and stick to a lot of the same genres… they create a brand for themselves. Do the same for yourself and you’ll see the sales rise.

Think about it, what’s to say that maybe there are people who want that genre but think “oh, I like electronic house but there isn’t that much on AudioJungle… I think I’ll go to (insert other stock website here)!” Think about it, you do your main groceries at a supermarket rather than a convenience store because there’s more choices.

Keep at your music and keep elevating your art, and I’m sure sales will follow!

Almost everyone here has the “freelance” box ticked on yes so I think a lot of composers here would love to do the job (myself included). If you read the bios of the composers here you’ll find a lot of people really experienced and able to help you.

What else do you need from them? Must they be based in the same country/city as you? Do you need the music really fast? In my opinion find 3-4 composers whose work you really like and then email them through the contact me box. Most of the composers here speak good english so I really think communication won’t be an issue and nowadays freelance work is hard to come by for most so almost any composer here will jump at the opportunity to work with you. But again, I think the most important thing is that you like the BODY of their work.

I suggest you find composers with a nice and big portfolio of consistent work. Make sure you like most of their tracks and start from there. Don’t go with someone just because you like one or two tracks. Go with someone who has consistent quality and sales throughout that you personally like. It will greatly increase your chance of being happy with the final product!!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve also noticed that long review lines = less sales… which means that there must be an increase in song submissions. There are tons of new songs everyday. Also there’s been an explosion of new authors, the volume is really increasing.

Must be tough on the reviewers though. Personally I’m pulling out for now, saving my songs for the next season, with christmas round the corner we’re all about to see a drought in sales during the holidays…

Here has been my experience for slower sales periods (in no particular order):
  • Wed-Sun of Thanksgiving weekend in the US (end of November)
  • The 10 days from around Dec 23 to Jan 3
  • The 2 weeks around typical US spring break (end of March or early April)
  • The month of July

Wow… that’s just freaky. EXACTLY the same for me. I remember each dry spell…

There’s an old saying “There is nothing scarier than the unknown”. For lots of authors that reality is true when considering going non-exclusive. Besides the fact that there are now nearly 4000 authors and over 80,000 audio files… envato hardly “needs” new authors and more music. Look at the review queue right now… I haven’t seen it this long since half a year ago. I think envato is good for music inflow…

Very interesting, love the photo mate! It’s a great idea! Sadly I have nothing I can contribute but I did give it a 5 star rating to put it on it’s way!
