Here’s a selection from my portfolio. A couple of hybrid cinematic pieces, and a hi-tech track.
Happy hunting! Gari
Looks like you guys/gals had fun. I can’t wait for the meet-up here in Japan! LOL He, it’s only a stones throw away from Australia!
Yes, same here. I had a dry spell then all of a sudden I had four sales in a day. I have no proof but I suspect that it was probably a single buyer who happened to like what he heard. That theory makes me feel warm and fluffy inside, so I’m sticking to it! lol.
Regarding sales, I think it’s difficult to pinpoint your drop in older items simply to the search engine change. Esp. if you have small sample date – e.g. time. I would put it down to the current season being Halloween leading into Christmas, rather than a SE change. It’ll be interesting to see how it unfolds over the next year, then we can have better data to back whatever the outcome is.
Good luck, and I wish you many more sales! Gari
Sam’s the man! Congrats!
You don’t need additional licenses for you to edit the song for your client. What usually happens is for you to purchase the item and pass the fee onto your client with your bill. The cost if the item should not exceed what you paid though, which is part of the licensing agreement. It shouldn’t really matter if you client purchases the license him/herself though as long as it’s all above board.
Good luck Gari
The back half of the month really picked up for me. I think it’s due to my tracks being dark cinematic that led to this, although I did sell a few ‘happy” songs. I guess heading into Nov/Dec/Jan will see a steady decline in sales all across the board, as seems to be the norm.
Ah, I just saw this thread too. Congrats man!
I gave TuneSat a trial a few months ago which turned up quite a few uses on network TV in the states. A few TV shows, and the highlight being a track used for an advertisement on WGN for X2 : Xmen with Patrick Stuart giving his “Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet, debate rages.” dialog over the top. It was quite surreal and exciting when I heard it!
I haven’t subscribed as I don’t think it would be any benefit, other than detecting usage, and the cost really adds up if need to track lots of songs and/or lots of territories/websites. It’s a great piece of tech though, and I sincerely hope that PROs will embrace it and implement a similar system themselves.
