I agree that advertisers looking to broadcast commercials on TV or radio for an audience of up to 1 million should pay more than $18.
I wonder what the other popular uses are for broadcast up to 1 million? Do smaller market local news channels license from AJ for segments throughout their shows? $18 might be right for that usage. Do local news magazine TV shows use AJ music for their montages, segments, and transitions? Maybe $18 is okay for that in a small market. What about other small market locally-produced TV and radio shows with an audience under 1 million? Perhaps buyers needing this type of usage could not afford a more expensive tier since they need a lot of music in their shows.
Maybe the $18 tier should allow broadcast usage up to an audience of 1 million but exclude advertisement/commercial use? For that a buyer would need at least the next tier up.
I don’t know. Are there many buyers on AJ needing to broadcast under 1 million who looking for music for non-advertising/commercial use?
I agree that higher rates for both broadcast licenses would be more appropriate. Companies interested in licenses for national ad campaigns and major motion pictures have large budgets that can handle a higher licensing fee.
I also think that the buyers who purchase the $18 license for their YouTube videos will get a better sense of the quality of the music and the value they are getting for their money when they see that the large broadcast license is more like $750.
This is looking great! I’m so glad that AJ is moving forward and evolving into a better and better marketplace. Count me in with the others as waiting eagerly for PRO integration in the future.
Looking at the prices, I wonder if the time-length price determination is now going away. Will all of the music tracks on AJ follow this same price structure regardless of track length? Or will the price tiers proportionally decrease depending on track length?
Sorry if this is explained somewhere and I just didn’t see it.
Thanks for all your efforts. The future is looking bright!

Sensation! Satchel from Steel Panther (guitarist) admires PZ too, look at his amazing guitar!
Every bit of visibility helps!
2 words: Product. Placement.
Unfortunately the new badges are so “loud”, it’s the first thing you look at, and if converting sales is the ultimate goal, badges should be the last thing a customer thinks about, not the first.
Agree with this. I appreciate the effort it took to redesign the badges and I like the effort to keep moving the site in a forward progression. However, the badges now dominate the view.
Go to the Top Authors page and the badges steal your attention. They by far outweigh the visual impact of the author avatars, which is exactly the opposite of how they should behave. They should be supportive nuggets of information, not the main show.
Wow, this is great! Thanks very much, Envato
Great tracks, everyone! Congrats
