This crazy thought came to my mind the other day about how we can get increased traffic to AudioJungle.

  1. Have an option in the user accounts to say whether we are a buyer, seller or both.
  2. Allow “buyers” to create a project with a description of what they are looking for and what they need in a track.
  3. Make this project information available to search.
  4. Allow sellers to post links to their items that they think fit the buyers need to the buyers project.
  5. Notify the buyer that there has been a suggested item to fit their project.
  6. Allow the buyer to rate the items posted for their project, mark it as spam (hopefully that won’t happen) or mark it as used (meaning they purchased and used it for their project).
  7. Sort the items in the buyers project by “used” and “rating”.
  8. Allow the buyer to close the project and disallow any more suggestions for that project.

This would then allow the buyers to relax and watch for the perfect fit to their project and the sellers to model their tracks after the specific needs of the buyers, which is one of the major goals for all us sellers.

It pretty much takes the guessing game away from the sellers writing and the buyers finding.

What do you guys think? Any other suggestions?

By the way all you Envato people, you are doing a fantastic job, keep it up! I consider it a privilege to be involved in such a high quality community.

I think it could be pretty similar to [link to competing site removed]

Yea, that’s it, without the need for the buyer to name a price, but rather just sit back and watch all the sellers bring the possible solution to him/her.

Basically, fostering a closer community between the seller and buyer.

Cool I got a +1 … :D lol

Anyone think of any ways to “fine tune” this idea? And, is there a different place to post things so that the devs will consider it or is this the place?

+1 (oh wait, I can’t give my own idea a +1 can I?) ... -1

:D

No, you’ve come to the right place! :D We do read everything that gets posted, don’t worry. :)

I think it’s a great concept. It can be simplified somewhat by taking out some unnecessary steps such as having the buyer rate files (surely they’d just need to purchase the file they actually like/want rather than spend time rating files, right?), but the general premise is solid, I like it. :) I think taking the Item Requests forum section and integrating it more dynamically somehow into our site/library so authors could suggest existing items would be very interesting. Definitely food for thought, thanks for taking the time to share the concept with us. :)

Thanks for the reply Scott. The reason for the rating by the buyer would be to then allow the programmers to sort the list in the project by what the buyer thought was the most interesting tracks, but I’m not primarily a buyer either at this point, so that may be too much to ask. And besides, the programmers could probably figure out a better way to measure the buyers interest. Just some thoughts.

Note that by showing which files were most interesting to that buyer it gives the sellers an idea of how useful there file was compared to the taste of that particular buyer.

signing off and continuing the brainstorming. ;)
