I wonder if anyone would remove the tracks that are unsold for a long time and who do not make sense in a portfolio, since it is not never sold?

Hi Wadim. :) You are welcome to do that if you wish, but please note, once items are deleted, they are not allowed to be resubmitted. If it’s good enough to have been approved, why not keep it in your portfolio because you never know if it will one day make a sale. But if you delete it, you will never know if it would have made a sale one day…

Scott rights, but I deleted all my 0 sale works, cause I don’t feel they have real potential for sale. I think for the period since my first upload, I begin to define good (for sale) compositions better, and you’ll do so, I’m sure. Take right decision! ;)

Unless you plan to sell it somewhere else you should not delete.

Just sold a two year old track that up until now had sold just once. Extended license to boot! Opened my eyes for sure. Like Scott said, if it was approved then it was deemed good enough for Audio Jungle. However, if you’ve got an older track that you think you could improve by remixing, you can click “edit” on the track and resubmit it.

That’s probably a dilemma that a lot of us face. As time goes on we get better at our craft and our gear gets better, so the temptation is to go back and rework old tracks. I figure my time is probably better spent working on new material. The exception would be a track where I’ve since upped my game and/or equipment and can hear problems I couldn’t hear before.

As for me I DON ’T recommend deleting your files. Two months ago after reading a lot of discussions on forum about deleting tracks with no sales I deleted some of my more than 1 year old tracks with 0 sales. Then I received e-mail from AJ customer : “We are now approving a large playlist of your tracks for our project, but one track we downloaded for test we can`t find now: the “X”. Isn`t this track available any more? That would be a disaster….((( ” Then was another mail from another customer who was going to buy another track I’ve deleted. Then a mail from VH guy who bookmarked two of my tracks for his new projects that were no longer available. So as for me it’s better to improve mixing, mastering, tags, item description of your tracks with zero sales, make a promotion on Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc. instead of deleting them

unless you plan to sell it somewhere else
indeed.

Good day to everybody! :)

Hi, and here’s my opinion on this subject:

You can remove the tracks with 0 sales, but then you never know how much times you would be able to sell, and maybe even a Extended Licence!

Good luck :)
