Sorry to hear about that, Mr.Luke. Your tracks are very good so it’s definitely not a quality issue. I’ve noticed that a lot of your stuff is oriented in the direction of classical and world music. I’m sure you’ve realized that some genres do better than others here. I’ve gotten very few sales outside of the corporate / acoustic / and rock categories. If you’re set on selling through AJ, then don’t rely too much on AJ to bring in your customers unless you happen to be a more corporate oriented composer.

You’re also not the only one. I’m in the no sales for a month category myself right now, but I haven’t been uploading much lately. What I have uploaded hasn’t done so well, but thats ok with me. I’m on hiatus while I work on some other projects. :)

BTW , your collections links are working for me.

Thank you guys and Jonan, I feel better now ;) Anyway, now I’ve some doubt about profile page and collections. Can I ask you just to check if they work right now? Can you do me this favour? Thanks

No sales since the beginning of July, but I finally got one today. Of course I don’t have much of a portfolio.

It can be frustrating when you spend so much time making music that no one buys. But I don’t think it’s that no one wants to buy it, It’s just that the buyers haven’t found it yet! There’s probably a buyer for almost every track that gets uploaded to this site – they just have to find it . Maybe a year from now you get your first sale off a track you uploaded yesterday. I think sometimes we can all be a little too anticipatory when it comes to this site. We would like to see upload sale, upload sale…but that can be a little unrealistic sometimes. Maybe not for the big boys, or for people writing the most “in-demand” type of music, but realistically, for most of us, it takes time for our stuff to sell. The great thing is, it’s passive. Once we make the music and upload it, we don’t have to do much. There’s marketing, sure, but once you do whatever you can with youtube, a blog, or a website, your track just sits there on the internet, 24/7, waiting for someone to come a long and purchase it. Now think about what a beautiful thing that actually is. Think about what a beautiful thing the internet is. It’s costing you nothing except your time and your creative energy, which you would be using to write music anyway, and what you get back is the possibility of cashing in on what you love to do. Maybe we should take a passive approach to it instead of checking everyday to see if we have a sale or two (like most of us probably do.) Maybe the energy we put into doing that would be better spent making more music eh?

But what am I saying, of course everyone of us is going to check tomorrow to see if we have a sale. :-)

You know, what I noticed is that some authors upload an item and after some hours already have a selling, ok, I accept, but if you look my portfolio, I’m making everykind of music, and no selling at all, just 2 or 3, believe me, I don’t mind about selling, but the only things that seems good I produce are “sounds/effects”. I mean, I need some positive feedback, also as comments or whatelse..just to keep on making music

Cheer up dude! I’m not the perfect example to follow (I only have 3 sales on my only item), and this message won’t get you the secret ingredient to grow your sales (because I ‘m still looking for it). But if this message could only give you a smile, then it’s worth it.

Again, cheer up and we will succeed.

Ben
