I’ll be honest, they don’t find them. I’ve had some tracks up for years that have never sold. The only song of mine that ever sells is one that a lot of videohive users are using and they have linked to it from their descriptions. The search feature on AJ is terrible. As for number of tracks, in my experience it makes no difference, I used to have over 100 songs here and still only 1 song ever sold, so I took most of them down.
I am a member of Adrev, I’ve recently got my first stats through. All I can say is you will be surprised at how many videos are using your songs that you have no idea about. I would never have known that my songs were being used in videos by top companies without Adrev – I have recently added these companies to my portfolio list and have received even more interest. I have only had 1 message through complaining about it and I explained to him that I will whitelist the video and he was totally fine with it. I really don’t see a problem for buyers who genuinely have the license to use a song, it couldn’t be easier for them to prove that they have the right to use it.
As for the amount you can earn, a lot of people say 1000 views = $1, I think it’s more like 2000 views = $1, from the 13 of my songs that have gone up on to Adrevs system so far, they have received 50,000 views. I have registered a further 200 songs, so you can see that there is money to be made – even if you don’t know your songs are being used!
Be sure to always whitelist any video that you know have bought a license.
Koster, this is the way the industry is going I’m afraid, if there was a way for you to track illegal usage of your videos then I’m sure you would do the same, it really isn’t that hard to sort it out with Adrev, you just need to send your clients the license which comes with your purchase and tell them to show it to youtube when any matched third party content is found.
As for some of the authors here, act professionally at all times, that’s rule number 1 of business.
haha It will be the media company that created the advert for L’Oreal at fault. I guess money is tight for them at the moment!
Hi guys, a few weeks ago I was searching online for some good tuned 808 kick drum sample packs but all I could find was just 1 sample and not the whole scale and most people were saying that they tuned them by ear which I thought would just sound muddy, so I took it upon myself to create my own sample pack! 25 samples of perfectly tuned deep sub bass 808 kicks. 2 octaves C1-C3, WAVE format, ZIP download, 4.80mb.

On my profile it says that the last time I signed in was 29th November 2014, I’m signed in now and have signed in every day! Think there’s a fault.
I honestly prefer the old version. this is too much.
The default dark grey collection boxes don’t really go with this new white colour
