When buyers are searching for that perfect track, do you think they listen to the entire track or just the first 20 seconds?

Just wondering what order I should put my full track; 60 sec and 30 sec edits when creating my preview. What do you guys do?

I don’t think you’re required to include the 60 and 30 versions if they derive from your original track. But I don’t think there’s a rule stopping you from including them. I’d always lead with the main track to avoid confusion, but if your 60 and 30 get to the meat of the song quicker you might be better off leading with those. Not sure, perhaps someone who knows more about this than I do has an opinion on the subject.

Thanks Jamie, you are correct, i don’t believe it is a requirement at all. I just noticed a few artists doing this and it looked like they were getting some sales from the ones that had the shorter edit options. As you have mentioned, if the 30 sec edit grabs attention quicker, it would make sense to put it first.
