Soundizer did you put man on the moon – what you have done is beyond any of my comprehension and I salute you for this amazing technology.
Sorry I forget to mention – just have fun with whatever style you like!
I like doing the cinematic tracks but I will ocassionally venture into different territory after I get a dressing down from other authors to do corporate / motivational tracks. I much prefer the cinematic stuff although everyone is doing it and you have to come up with something special when you are up against martyjndebont and sky-productions. Highly competitive so I suppose the more strings to your bow the better.
JHungerX saidConsider me naive with regards to this but do fellow authors really and truly believe that following an author and then unfollow only to follow again provides exposure and promotion from someone elses profile page? I follow my mates who I have got really close to and am very interested in what they produce and with Dirk we have healthy sales competition on a daily basis. Please tell me authors do not do this trend for self interest?
What really gets on my goat however, is when I see my follower count drop then suddenly rise in a matter of minutes, only to realise it’s authors doing that follow-unfollow-follow routine, in some kind of half arsed attempt at getting more exposure, and vampiring off the back of someone else’s success.
This has recently become a huge pet peeve of mine – there are 3-4 authors who have been doing this on my profile page for several months now, and it’s super annoying, and kind of sad. I don’t like to call people out in forums, but it’s pretty obvious who is doing it if you occasionally check the profile pages of some of the top authors.
It would be better to be able to see all followers, but in lieu of that, it would be almost as good to just randomize who displays in the visible list.
To the OP’s question, I’ve had followers drop off for many other reasons, e.g:
EDIT – oops, my gripe was meant for my non-exclusive account (I forget who I’m logged in as sometimes). I don’t have the same “vampire follower” problem on my exclusive account
- A buyer who was following you only as they were searching for songs for a project
- An author who has left (or been kicked off) Envato
- An author who is just following you so you’ll follow back, and then unfollows you once you do
- An author/buyer who simply wants to filter the authors that show up in the new items list
FreshEarsAudio saidHang tough…this will pass!
After a great first two days (and a general slow but upward climb in sales per month up to then) April has just stopped dead for me.
This coincides with my Pageviews, which dropped off a cliff around April 3rd and haven’t really returned.
Does anyone else currently experiencing slow sales also have a dramatic drop in Pageviews?I wonder if this is more search tweaks or just bad luck?
We can tough this one out – let’s just write cool tracks that will inspire our audience!
There is nothing like being rejected.
