If you can do quality & quantity this is the best formula. If not take a month if you need to and write and record the most perfect song you can, it will be worth more then just throwing up tracks to get “Front page exposure” which in the long run does nothing for you.
Excellent advice Ryan. Personally, this is exactly the philosophy I’ve been working by.
permian saidYes, cheers Alex for pointing this out. Can’t believe I never saw this. Well, I’ve just spent the last half an hour reading through all my old noobie posts, thanks to you!
Maan, I’m so lame… I’ve just noticed that you can find recent posts and threads of any autor if you point the cursor on the avatar. I even used to search my own posts by “search forums”-feature couple of times!
JBlanks saidThank you so much for the shoutout Jamie, that’s really, really kind of you! But of course, it takes one to know one!
PS. Forgot to mention the incredibly talented Matt Harris at Alumo Audio. Not that his work needs any introduction but I think he’s a superstar and a lovely chap too.
studio26design saidHaha thanks and well spotted! Funnily enough, many years ago I seriously considered going into label A&R, but couldn’t go through with it, as I much prefer being the one hanging around in studios!
He also has a good ear for talent too. I read on page 6 of this thread he noticed an artist called BlueFoxMusic who only had 4 tracks up at the time and he thought they would “do well here on AJ :)”
Excellent, excellent work Adi! Your rapid rise here doesn’t come without good reason of course! Well done dude, here’s to the next 500
I’m also looking to upgrade from my Alesis MKIIs, as I think they’re on their way out sadly, and have been doing a bit of shopping around – The Adam’s are definitely on the list, along with the KRK Rokits, but just been taking a look at this review of the Adam AX7 & AX8. Definitely thrown a bit of a curve ball!
Good work dude! Next stop
I’ve been on AJ for exactly 1 year now, and this has been my best month since starting.
Looking at my stats, one pattern I have personally noticed however, is that sales do tend to dip off in the first and last few days of the month.
Interestingly, this has been my worst month for sales on other marketplaces. Looks like Envato are definitely doing something right in the SEO department!
Exactly the same experience here too. If I remember correctly, my profile page views were incredibly high during that week – presumably from other authors checking out my page, but item page views were pretty low considering. Still, it’s a good way to get our names out there, and of course, we get to wear that nice little piece of bling!
And, yes, well done on getting that feature!
