What’s your most notable sale? Who was the purchaser?
I’ve heard rumor that mainstream companies have made purchases here at AJ. If that’s the case, let’s hear your success stories. It’s great motivation for us rookies. So, who bought your music and what did they use it for? Any TV commercials in the house? Radio?
Looking forward to reading about your wins.
Sadly, we don’t know who buys our music unless the buyer makes a contact after the sale or posts a comment.
Outside of AJ my biggest sale was a promo campaign soundtrack for a large chemical company.
There was a topic about Toyota and Adidas (if I remember correctly) getting some tracks here, maybe you can look it up in Envato notes.
Yes there are many examples of large companies using AJ music. As miksmusic mentioned, Toyota and Adidas used one of the tracks by AJ author timmcmorris. Also, one of my tracks was featured in a recent Porsche Video, this got me super motivated and excited. you can read about it here: http://notes.envato.com/authors/porshe-put-audiojungle-on-display-at-autosport-2012/
AudioJungle is really growing, and that’s a great thing for all of us.

Actually many of us here have had extended licenses purchased by companies who are recognized by all sorts of folks, it’s just that it’s what we do and it’s not such a huge deal once it happens a few times. Don’t get me wrong, it feels amazing to see/hear your work in action anywhere, let alone somewhere popular or otherwise very cool. But then again, every sale should still send a little current through the old body, no matter how long you’ve been at it. I think it’s more just that most of us who have been selling music for many years do the large majority of work outside of AJ and have the bulk of our attention focused elsewhere. That and serious custom work is what we all really strive for in the end. By no means is it an ego thing or anything like that at all. It’s just what happens over time and you simply need to provide the best service and products possible to your clients whom you are able to engage with, and you never really know (95% of the time) who they even are on AJ.
All that said, I love AJ, quite dearly, for many of the same reasons the bulk of the customers who frequent the site do. We are all part of an ongoing movement towards bucking the systems that have been in place far too long and have kept quality audio out of reach of way too many people with wonderful projects and ideas to share with the world. It also allows us artists and creative types who sell through Envato’s marketplaces to forge new relationships with folks from all around the world on a level we never would have without them.
Plus, we love “working along side” so many of our friends here. I would gamble to say that ‘success’ stories are much more common than you would imagine around the AJ community.
Just my 2¢
