Often there is something pretty obvious as to why a track was rejected when posted here, however, I don’t hear anything different in quality here from your accepted and selling tracks. My only suggestion for this track is maybe the arrangement. ie, a 1 minute version may have more commercial viability than 3:41.

Don’t be discouraged, you have some nice tracks in your portfolio so keep at it.

May I also suggest that now might be a good time to put your 4 Christmas tracks in to a music pack for sale. :)

that’s good idea mate !

Really?

If the doors were closed 4 months ago you wouldn’t have been able to open an account. I assume you would have been happy with that.

‘Closing the doors’ will never happen and is not the panacea for dropping sales.

Given your accepted tracks are very guitar oriented I would suggest you stick to that if having no luck with the Corp/Motivational style. Maybe have a listen to some of the successful Sports/action openers or background tracks that you could try and still stick close to what you are comfortable with.

Just a suggestion.

Buyers just can`t find it in search.

How do you know buyers are using the search? My theory has always been that most buyers look at the front page and maybe up to 10 pages in to the new items by which time they have found what they want.

The view graph you displayed is the usual trend for my tracks and is not new. Example below is from November 2013. The small bump around Nov 8 was when i tweeted a link and the one at the end of the month was when i uploaded the track to SoundCloud.

Hi,

I’m certainly no expert and get a few hard rejections here myself but here’s my thoughts on your track and some suggestions that may help you with getting tracks approved.

In general i think the instrument sounds used in this track are poor and stand out from the start. This sounds very much like a generic midi track. Apart from the very expensive sample libraries I haven’t heard too many electric guitar samples done well. I think changing the samples used could certainly improve the track. You can improve these without purchasing expensive libraries.

Check out the freebies via this thread – http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/freebies-samplers-and-sample-libraries/18932?page=35

For composition/arrangement I suggest having a listen to the top selling tracks here, take note of the track structure, dynamics and how a lot of corp/motivational tracks build gradually (if that is the category you are looking at composing for), adding instruments, maintaining a consistent theme yet not staying too repetitive.

I think a good learning experience is trying to replicate another track (not for selling), be it a popular commercial song or AJ track. You can really learn a lot about song structure, use of instruments, mixing and mastering this way and you can apply what you learn to your original tracks.

Good luck and keep at it.

I always tend to like my most recent track the most. I was very happy with how this one turned out and hope it will pick up sales eventually.

Strings samples are not something I have worked with a lot but I like the build I managed to get at the end of this track.

Very nice tracks in your portfolio and I like your item descriptions. Your sales will definitely grow once your portfolio builds.
