Hello everyone! My name is Ola and forgive me my english, I’m bulgarian. I’m here only a week, uploaded a few melodies (5 is waiting, 2 temporarily held because of my stupid mistakes), wrote some comments (sincere, from the heart). Then stopped and thought..
At the beginning of my journey here I want to say hello to all of you – talented amazing genius composers, professional brilliant musicians.. hello to you – hard-working careful staff and valuable successful clients.. hello to you – one and only AudioJungle! Hello to Everyone!!!
What’s next?I don’t know.. I am afraid of being unsaleable, unlistenable, uninteresting here. I have been working tirelessly. I have two colleagues – Vova and Oleg. But they behind the scenes, I’m just here.
Tell me something positive or negative about AudioJungle. What is easy and what is need to be afraid of? What will have to go through?(as the durability test)
What the most important thing for you here?
Hi Ola, and welcome to AudioJungle!
I’ve checked out your SoundCloud-profile; some nice music you have there. I’m sure it will fit right in here. You write you’re afraid of being unsaleable, unlistenable, uninteresting; don’t be. At worst some track might get rejected, but you’ll learn from that. We all get tracks rejected from time to time. While making nice music is one thing, it’s quite another thing to make music for the stock-market like we are in here. Chances are you’ll have to learn your way around, I know I did (and still learning), but that’s a good thing, nothing to be afraid of. It’s probably a good idea for you to read through this thread: AJ Book of Tips – by authors, for authors – it contains loads of useful information for both existing authors as well as newcoming authors. I think that if you pay close attention to the forums, to what people have to say, to what reviewers write to you upon acceptance or decline of your work, that you’ll get along automatically. A little tip: do not upload your tracks all at once. Spread those uploads over some time.
You asked for something positive and negative about AudioJungle. One very positive thing is the community. There is alot to be learned from eachother. Not only by listening to eachother’s music, but also through the forums. There’s years and years of useful information here (also alot of bogus, but you can just skip that). People actually help eachother here and provided you participate nicely and well, people generally are willing to share tips with you. As for a negative thing, please note this is a personal opinion, I dislike the quite limited categorisation and the available licensing options. There’s alot of discussion going on about licenses for TV-network and the like. You asked about the most important thing here: well, that’s easy. Enjoy your time here, and work together with the rest to make quality music so we can, together, further increase the quality of the marketplace. That benefits all of us.
If you have any questions or problems, then feel free to post on the forums. You can also message me if you like (I’m just another author, just like you, though).
Good luck! ,

Dear Cor!!! That’s fantastic! So many aspects reflected in your comment. That’s priceless to me. I am very grateful to you for your time.
The most interesting is the licensing options and still a question How often upload new tracks for their successful sales?(but this is probably in a different theme)
Many thanks Cor for the detailed answer!!!
As for the frequency of item uploads: newly uploaded items appear on the frontpage, and thus they, including you as their author, are more exposed to the public, which ofcourse is a desirable thing. Seeing there’s only a certain amount of “new items” being displayed on the frontpage, your item will slowly make room in that list for other newly uploaded items. As mentioned, it is a desirable thing to have some additional exposure on the frontpage, hence it is a good idea to spread your item uploads over time (say at least 12 hours between them), rather than uploading many at once. Perhaps things can be said as for the ideal day of the week for the items to appear there, but then again, reviewing times are unpredictable (making it about impossible to predict the moment they land), and in the end there’s not really a best day of the week anyway. In short: uploading regularly is beneficial, but most important is, ofcourse, the quality of your music. You should not upload low-quality music just for the sake of being exposed. For in the end it’s quality that sells, not quantity.
Hi Ola, nice music!
Cori gives us very good advice
Welcome and good luck!
This is a very hard task, Cor, to upload every 12 hours, but an ideal scenario. I know I know you said at least 12 hours between uploads.
Now I’m going to follow your advice:
I think that if you pay close attention to the forums, to what people have to say, to what reviewers write to you upon acceptance or decline of your work, that you’ll get along automatically.and
uploading regularly is beneficial
Hope I can do this)
