So considering what’s popular here at the Jungle why do I feel like a sellout if I make a track with Uke , Handclaps, and glockenspiel? Or should everyone have at least one Uke track?

You’re here to sell music right? Make music that sells then – whatever it takes. If I took to heart the opinion of everyone around when I started I’d still be at ten sales (no offense to those with 10 sales of course :) , but you understand.)

When you want sales you just gotta do what works sometimes. When you get more momentum, then step out and be more creative and take more risks.

This is why there are 100 threads with “why don’t I have any sales” People don’t understand the nature of the marketplace. If you want the best song on AudioJungle title, get ready for single digit sales :)

For me, I don’t think I am some amazing composer or producer – but I understand how the site works and what buyers are looking for. That is more important for sales I think…

The term ‘Selling out’ doesn’t really apply to AJ because AJ is all about making music that sells.

Short answer: Produce what you think will sell as best you can :)

Wise words from one of the top authors here. I would listen to that advice Mr. Marshall!

I agree with you guys! Make music that sells. I have to be honest and say I was surprised that music I uploaded that I thought wouldn’t be a good Audiojungle type tracks have been getting sales so that’s why I ask. I guess it all depends sometimes!

I am pretty sure that in the contributor agreement fine print there is a requirement for each author to create a Uke , Handclaps, and glockenspiel track.

I don’t know guys…it has kind of two sides… Ukes and claps and glocks are selling great but people who buy them know most of the times to which authors to go and look for such tracks. It is always good to follow successful authors and their music. It is inspiring and definitely you got plenty to learn from. Having some of this kind of items in the portfolio definitely doesn’t hurt and who knows, you might even get a few sales on them. But I find it hard to believe that nowadays you can become a top author with such items. I might be wrong of course…Personally I didn’t go in this direction until now, but rather tested other styles with a commercial potential. And I will try in the future to find my own way, of course not loosing from sight the market trends or the work of other great authors around here.
