But after the unfair penalty for Brazil last night, my sales in this category dropped instantly :-)

That penalty was unbelievable. I have a bet on Croatia to win (not likely), but last night made me lose hope in how this whole World Cup is going to be managed as it was quite pro-host I felt.

Well done dude. I agree with that everyone else said above, you’re a talented, creative and really cool person that is a genuine asset to AJ. A major plus point is that you’re constantly pushing the boundaries of music by fusing together different elements in creative and often unexpected ways which is great to see and very healthy for the industry as a whole. An impressive achievement that’s well deserved.

Oh, and a digital high five for having put a Red Taco Tape in the post, you get bonus points for that :)

Gareth, I’ve been interested in getting Minimal for a while or just saving up and getting the complete bundle from Sonokinetic as they have a variety of excellent instruments from what I can hear (particularly vocal samples).

Do you have quite a few of their instruments and think it’s worth investing in their catalogue? It’s quite a hefty discount on the complete bundle I noticed…

Expect much less return for your investment is my experience. I’ve put a LOT of effort in over the last 2.5 years and have just under 760 sales. Some of the reasons are the huge amount of competition, exposure of certain tracks to larger a audience by the curators meaning they have a better chance of becoming popular and a lower threshold for entry into making music vs creating complex animations for Videohive (which I would argue requires a deeper skill set).

Same with selling website themes, there’s more chance of making money in that at the moment as there is a lot of technical expertise and support that’s required to be successful.

I would recommend you create Videohive projects that are coupled with your music, that way you’ll get double exposure for your work and have a better chance of making some money.

Good luck!

Off to a horrible start here with just 1 sale. Last month was only 30 sales which is half of the month prior. Not sure what I did wrong to change things.

Don’t worry, I’m in the same boat. Just the way things work here it seems.

Since everyone did such a great job, I’m going to hand out 30 day silver superstar badges to everyone who entered :D

A time-limited gift? That’s like giving out Christmas presents but saying Santa wants them back after you’ve got used to enjoying them! Come on, I’m sure you can make those badges permanent can’t you? You are a King remember :)
