Well done. When I joined I didn’t expect to ever make $50, so I was glad you get your cash paid out yearly if you don’t make $50. Keep submitting your tracks one by one (every few days), and that way you’ll stay on the new wall and get seen. Good luck!
I’ve been writing stuff for AJ for a while, but have recently started a site with resources for video podcast users. I’ve placed adverts for AJ and VH on it, and in the last 2 weeks I’ve had 56 clickthroughs, quite a good number. However, only two people registered (and no deposits, but that may take a while). I’m wondering how many people who go to Envato sites and never make it past the first page.
The majority of stock sites offer freebies to keep a large user base and bait in new customers – I’t’s the freebies that have got me connected to some other stock sites in the first place. As an author i’d be happy to donate some content to a monthly freebie scheme on Envato, because I think it would get more people on envato and viewing our content.
Anyone else got any thoughts on this?
Great ideas, Soundsfromearth and ma9sharp11. I’d like to see this too. Most of the sales I get are due to my newest tracks being on the wall at the right time.
Just to clarify. Does this mean every hour of the day I’ll get a message, even if nobody’s purchased anything?
I recently got the tascam fireone – no complaints about it whatsoever. Crytal quality sound, very reasonable price, and a midi transport control all in one!
I’m pretty sure you’d be fine with having them as separate files in your game. As long as you aren’t selling it as a sample pack, you should be allright.
You’re by no means the first person to be confused by the license. They should do the creative commons thing and show a user friendly summary at the top.
Mods correct this if i’m wrong, but I believe it means:
You’re allowed to create your own projects and add this audio to them and then sell them to someone. You could also use it in your demoreel.
What the license doesn’t let you do is buy a lot of Audiojungle tracks and sell them straight on to other people, like making your own stock music site out of the content on this one.
So in short, as long as you’re using them in something creative, and not just reselling them, you’re free to do as you want.
(Just an idea – if people disagree it’s fine)
I really like AJ’s interface and method of displaying the tracks, but I find that usually I only get sales when I have an item in the “new uploads” section. The tracks I sell aren’t particularly the same ones as those in the new uploads section, but I get the feeling most users discover my tracks by hearing one under new releases and searching for my other stuff. I reckon that when people want music for a project, they usually look in the new/most popular section first.
I’d like the whole system to be more search driven – on most stock audio sites the first thing you see is a search box – on AJ it’s hidden on the 3rd tab.
If you get clients to search more, well described tracks are more likely to get sales, and authors won’t have to do the thing where they stagger uploads to make sure they always have a track on the ‘new releases section’ to bait clients. AJ would do well to make this search box more prominent on the index page.
How about a dollar credit for completing a brief survey?
