Yeah Phil, I too noticed that suddenly they’re a lot stricter… and cheers to that, my portfolio is getting too big anyway. Related to the exposure point, I’ve noticed the review line is more erratic than ever, I suspect it’s to keep a steady stream on releases so they see more sales!!
Dude… I nearly forgot extended licenses exist, we haven’t sold one in half a year. Congrats!!
Congrats man! On to 100 next!
My iMac. It creates awesome sounds!!
Another mac user! Well to be honest it seems to be the way of the future….
Even though I use VST ’s I also really love your old acoustic instruments… especially acoustic guitar and piano… female backing vocals really do it for me too…
I haven’t seen anything yet using my music, but this thread inspired me to check around and I came across a VideoHive project using my track: http://videohive.net/item/the-business-promotion/1775474 First one ever! Fun find for the day Inspired me to go ahead and add a one-minute long version to my item too.
Oh my goodness! How long did it take you to find that? How many videos did you have to go through? I’m tempted to do so as well….
I really like this one:
82,000 views AND the guy gave you credit! That’s amazing, I’d pay for that type of exposure!
@ TacoMusic: Thanks man and congrats on being featured, I hope it brings you plenty of sales and customers! I too have considered that there would be far too much work if you had an account for each genre, not to mention the hell of taking that author test again! I did have pinkzebra in mind as someone that dabbles in everything yet has succeeded, but if you look him up he seems to have already had tons of experience in the biz and I think he brings in his own clients.
@ AlumoAudio + SolarSound: Yeah PinkZebra’s marketing, client base and branding (and of course great music) has really led to his success. It really seems to be about finding your sound or “niche” eh?
Hey guys, I was reading some stuff from a forum conversation I had with Taco and JC Kerosene a while ago and one thing that came up was having an account with a focus and how this leads to sales. Since there is a team behind my account and we pretty much upload whatever we like we have a very spread out and nearly random portfolio yet I was comparing our account to others, and those that have chosen to focus on a few genres have come out the most successful.
If you think about the top authors here and name them then a certain genre immediately springs to mind:
Tim McMorris: Motivational and Pop
Gareth Coker: Cinematic
Symphony of spectres: Cinematic
Jhunger: Acoustic and folk
Plastic3: Electronic music
Vaisnava: World and ambient
And even though many of these authors dabble in other genres (and do so extremely well) they’ve built up their fanbase so that it doesn’t matter. I even compared our account to others our age and those with focused songs and genres are doing a lot better. So here is my question to you fellow authors… do you agree with my little theory here about focusing accounts? Now obviously there are plenty of authors I have left out from my name-genre correlation chart and I know there are others who seem to have succeeded whilst still not having a specific genre related to them. But still, for a junior author…. is a genre specific account best? Should one create separate accounts to dabble in different genres even though this would mean taking longer to get the commission rates you want? Opinions people!!
500 in so little time! Congrats man!!
Yeah, even a song that has been “hidden” and “soft rejected” for a while goes straight to the front page once improved. AudioJungle is very fair on this issue!
