Great advices!

Scott I have a question. Is there a possibility that we have some free watermark videos for presenting our music via youtube and vimeo? Something like when we donated some free music few years ago for vh and activden authors.

Have a nice day!
Great idea!

I agree: awesome idea

To ScottWills: GREAT LIST !

We’ve spent a lot on this site via other accounts which do not include my personal name.

Since I’m a potential customer you if you found the question, I’ll type some random thoughts quickly since I need to swim laps before the swimming pool closes.

First, this series of websites is simply the classiest and best place to find some of the best work in the world. We spend a lot of time searching. So, for starters, Scott is correct: VIDEOHIVE loses opportunity because the artists, even some of the best ones, did not have an agreement with you… so watching their samples is either silent (like a movie with no score), or worse, it needed music by YOU with your talent to make their art have more ‘feeling’ to it.

I get it because music and art live inside of me, so I focus on what I do in “Hollywood” and I want to hire the best talented individuals in the world to do what we know will reach the viewer, the listener – the person that you are writing your music, doing your art for. Reaching her through sound, sight… it’s my job. So I hope this helps.

As someone that has bought a lot from this site with other accounts for what we are working on, it would help you if search was not based on factors that keep people like us from finding what we need. The best will rise to the top, but only if I have the time to search through a lot more tracks than what comes to the first few pages sorted by ‘ratings’ or ‘sales’ ... this is not your fault, and I do not know how to engineer the searches to make finding the right track easier (without listening all night to clips). It’s also an issue to have to click the play button on each one. It would be easier to simply hover over it to hear it. Further, it’s not fair to you that a track may be drastically different at the beginning (where each begins) than in the middle. That said, I need to be able to give someone the opportunity to score two documentaries and a show. It might be a near perfect mix since we do not have the budget to purchase full rights to a lot of tracks, but we have the ability to help the right person(s) get noticed.

So, it I were in your shoes wanting people like me to spend money on music, I would do this:

I’d find someone like me that needs to utilize music for content I post (rough, reduced quality video cuts) that happen to be working on other projects that need music. Radio shows, television shows and documentaries need music because music affects human emotions.

There are a lot of people like me… working quickly to complete documentaries and a tv show without the budgets of the major studios, but with a wee bit of influence which makes it possible for us to, say, add your name to credits of videos, movies and tv shows. When we’re able to purchase rights to showcase your talent with our work that draws a nice-sized audience, it can create a certain amount of fame for you, your talent and might even have a side benefit of being noticed by decision makers we work with in the industry.

I understand… you’re not doing this for the fame of it, or the money of it… but then again that fame and money would make creating stadium-sized concert events with audiences that found you – well it’s more possible. And if you don’t want money once you make it as far as you have dreamt of going, you can give 100% of it away to those you say you wish to help. In my work, I have learned a lot from those that have worked in their art and officially reached ‘the dream’ ... and they have something in common, they give and give and give.

So if i were trying to market my music, I would find people like me, and agree to create something that’s like what’s needed for this or that project at a rate so low that its uncomfortable. In this way, you’re being challenged to do your dream work… your best work while getting something that can be worth more than those super costly marketing people in the entertainment and music business.

It really doesn’t hurt to have your name and music credited on YouTube, and what if it is in a movie or documentary, even most film festival movies list credits which are searchable on IMDb, and sites like that (and having your name in the end credits on screen at a movie) ... these are powerful tools that help build fame (and sales).

When in doubt, remember that Mark Petrie is like the rest of us, well except the world has been exposed to him through Spiderman this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3h-gWBArIs Great guy normal person, and he still has royalty-free tracks for sale.

Marketing the person(s) with the right kind of sound… we can do as we build what’s coming, and when projects are released, it becomes more fun. If interested, let me know what your dreams are. I noticed a message on here from Rodrigo Noales. Amazing talent! There’s a whole list I could add here, but I’ll make comments eventually on your profiles since your talent deserves the credit.

I made my Facebook AJ player on facebook using iFrame App

https://www.facebook.com/voytek.corti.pavlik/app_208195102528120

It’d be awesome to get a custom app by AJ, though. Like Bandcamp does or Band Page…

It’s awesome that you guys post this stuff here, but I also would like to know (and probably others), how does AudioJungle advertise on the web?

Hi Sam, Thx for your insight. Actually, what is the easiest way to reach people like you?

Most are accessible as we like to help people reach dreams because we didn’t have people reaching out to us… So we want to try to make it easier for the best talents in the world with the focused drive to do what they do best. You’ve got talent, and we do too, so we understand you. You want the open door, and some of us need to trade show credit and more eyes and ears exposed to your amazing work … In exchange for full rights at the lowest price. A lot of us have written books and have LinkedIn presence. And if anyone here wants to discuss a project contact me. Just know that for syndicating your work, doing stuff thats following patterns of what we need (because it is popular) is the way. It’s not selling out or lowering standards to do what works at first to get your name noticed because your work makes, for instance, a documentary have greater emotional connection with women that saw it. That kind of work can get you top sales here (ongoing rent money) and can lead to being paid like the composers doing movies or some of the new trance DJs. Remember that AT40 is on 600 radio stations in the U S … The songs are hits because they’re happy hopeful trance based (Example: David Guetta with Usher) when heard as instrumentals. My team needs that Katy Perry ‘Wide Awake’ instrumental sound for the next feature length movie and other wonders. We also need some I.D. Elements. So, anyone reading this that is the best that understands the technology of todays music engineering… I’ll send samples if you think you can accomplish them… Short elements which I need something similar to. Well you’ve found me. For others Vimeo has stuff people made that may or may not be getting views. So they have money to spend but are clueless about marketing PR Publicity even if that means they spend money on those… Money spent doesn’t guarantee success …. Your art could make their work better which could help them get noticed. Be willing to trade work for being credited on imdb and in movie credits as this makes your work appear worth more money. Most decision makers on big projects are accessible. Just think of how many people have a film festival film you could’ve made a trade with which would’ve exposed you to being noticed by decision makers. Lots of other places and I’ll add later. But do this …. Find tv show clips online used to promote shows and find peoples favorite commercials that get lots if views. I see a lot of people on here that design music and art seemingly without checking what’s working with an audience primarily of women.. You know … Certain styles are popular and yes you’re great at your own style… Look at promos for upcoming shows like “ready for love” NBC But to become known do similar to what’s already working. That includes the video hive talents. so much more to say which I’ll write and organize. Just know that there’s hope because the future is brighter. Sam
