Well done mate, good to see you rise up!
Well done Martijn, good to see you rising the ranks
Granted this is only a small slice of the pie, but the consistency of the numbers suggest to me that the “blame summer” mentality is really a simple case of correlation without causation… my point is simply an echo of the age old testament: that we’re all likely better off saving our precious mental energy for what really matters most – the music
Well, you can’t argue against statistics and I see your point and agree that it’s not worth placing your energy in places where there’ll be no pay off. I guess there are also different customer bases for different authours as well meaning sales go down when your particular customers aren’t around!
That combined with what looks like a system of sales buffering / monthly thresholds that AJ has in place will obviously affect sales, so I’ll focus on trying to write better music and hope the curators pick me up one day and give me some limelight. Thanks again for your reply btw.
Here’s a track I did with the dude that is Garry O’Neill:http://audiojungle.net/item/christmas-jing-a-ling/3536767
Thanks for this, really appreciate you taking the time to do these posts / analyses and well done on becoming part of the Envato staff!
One question though – I assume you’re saying the Summer slow down is a myth for top selling authours right? I’ve had two very poor August sales since I started trading on AJ (I began selling two years ago) and I know a lot of other authours have had the same experience.
So I’m wondering what myth has been busted exactly as I believe I’ve continued to improve the quality of my music based on the quick succession of sales I usually get on tracks before they disappear into the mass of other tracks, something that didn’t happen in the beginning, yet Summer has continued to prove itself as a poor period of sales for me and others.
July was my worst month since i joined. even last July things were good. August was shaping up to be the worst month so far but in the last week alone WHAM, a ton of sales and off we go again. i have totally given up with trying to make sense of AJ buying patterns cos their simply isnt one. i have seen loads of people suffer last 2 months only to see shedloads boom and make top sales. so i just upload and forget till the months end now
I hope you’re right BTV, this month has by far been my-worst-month-ever.com
Have you tried AudioJungle Radio? I think you can control the volume of the track using that (not on my computer at the moment, but google it and I’m sure you’ll find it).
Excellent achievement Alkis, I’m also a fan of your stuff, nicely crafted audio
Congratulations Allegro, that’s an impressive achievement
Well done fellas and fella-ettes! Hope your sales rocket through the skies and a couple of coins fall down here and there for the rest of us enjoy!
