I was just looking at some stats and trends of the Top Authors list and thought I would share some things I found interesting.

1. There is only one exclusive authors on the first page (1-50) of top authors that hasen’t either been featured or had a featured item yet. I think it’s time that Ane_Novak get a feature. There is some great stuff in that catalog and is worthy of a feature. Come on Envato!

2. FX Pro Sound has 2,549 items in their portfolio. Does anybody have more???

3. Metro Light Music is in the top 10 with only 21 items in their portfolio. That’s a good sales to items ratio!

4. Music Premium started here in January 2012 (same month I did) and is already ranked #18 in barely over a years time. Well Done!

5. Between his two accounts, Soundroll has 29,155 sales and counting which is about 12,000 more sales than any other author on Audiojungle.

6. The Top Authors list updates just once a day I think so at the time I looked it said Tim McMorris had 17,895 sales but his profile page showed 17,931 sales which means that from the time this morning that this page was updated and when I looked some hours later he had 36 sales…sheesh!! That’s like over half a typical month for me.

7. One currently needs 1,906 sales to make it to the first page of Top Authors, and that number will just continue to grow the closer you get to it.

8. Page two of the Top Authors (51-100) only has two exclusive authors who haven’t had a featured item or Author of the week.

I doubt that anybody has more (if you don’t count PhotoDune people :) ). FXProSound just came and conquered the sfx category like a boss :D

Edit: Just a quick remark on this number you mentioned: the top authors list shows cumulative number of files from across all marketplaces on which author sells. The actual number of AudioJungle items only is smaller. Nevertheless, Robert (FXProSound) is still the boss around here :)

Ah yes, I had forgotten that those numbers could potentially reflect other marketplace uploads. Either way you both have a remarkable number of uploads and sales!! keep it up!

I was thinking about some other stat comparisons today.

When I joined AJ nearly 2 years ago, Soundroll-Music was the top overall seller with, if I remember right, somewhere over 4,000 sales. I think the next closest was in the 2,000’s. I believe only the top 8 or 9 authors had more than 1,000 sales. It amazes me that an author now needs 1,000 sales just to make it into the top 100 and nearly 2,000 to make the top 50. In March of 2011, I remember that roughly 600 sales qualified for the top 50.

Soundroll-Music led February 2011 sales with 239. Tim McMorris was rising quickly with 182 that month. You could make the top-sellers-of-the-month list with 48 sales. If your track had more than 9 sales in a week, your item could make the top 10 for that week. Five sales qualified for the Weekly Top Sellers list. Check out the list: http://audiojungle.net/page/top_sellers?day=06&month=03&year=2011

Soundroll-Music was the only composer with a gold paw, and I remember comments in the forum stating that it would be a LONG time before anyone else on AJ would get another gold paw. Now there are at least 19 that have reached that level or beyond.

A big thank you goes to all the pioneer composers who paved the way for everyone here. Those musicians built this place. :)

As crazy as the growth has been over the last two years, it seems likely that two years from now we will look at today’s stats and marvel at how small they were!

All of this without a decent search engine. I guess we see why things are so slow to be improved around here with stats like these. The growth has been steady with no sight of decline so why change things like prices….

Great insight Pink Zebra! I wouldn’t have expected such a dramatic increase in just a couple years.

Wow, and count to this info some information i saw few days ago on some audio stock. It claimed that “Audio Jungle” disvalue music by its cheaper prices. Of course, for new comers it is hard to climb on the top now, but all this info shows than “cheaper-and-more-sales” strategy is working.
