For the past ten or so years I’ve been writing, recording and performing songs, but I’d never once been paid for my efforts (unless you count being paid in beer). So on the 24th of November 2012 I decided to change that – I set myself a simple goal:
To become a professional musician by the end of the year. This meant I had 37 days to make at least £0.01 directly from my music, achievable, but not easy.
Today, still with 18 days to spare I achieved that goal, by making my first sale on Audio Jungle. In fact I overshot that goal by a factor of 435, as the $7 I made from the sale is about £4.35, needless to say I’m ecstatic
I’d also like to thank everyone here, as I’ve learned so much in the last few weeks from reading these forums and listening to everyone else’s awesome creations.
Next goal – 100 sales by then end of 2013
congrats man, and great post.
Congrats, that’s a great milestone!
Congrats, Matt! The first sale is a great experience, yeah! Keep up the good work! And it’s better to pay the beer from money made with music than just get a beer for making music
Keep it going Matt! Just keep uploading as often as you can!
Hi Matt, I think Audiojungle is the most trustable selling plattform for musicans. As you I made music only for others without getting paid, but only reviewed. Many of those strange reviewers did have a high overestimation or used only sample loops – real experts….^^ I only got some feedback like “nice track”, “could be better”, “good”, so useless.
On AJ we all know why we are here with the same goal Cross fingers to us and happy christmas
Congrats from me, Matt
Keep it up, Matt! I wish you good luck & many,many sales!
