It’s been argued several times that the bargain basement is helping new authors getting more exposure. Although this might be true for some, I still stand by my first comment here in the thread to abandon the bargain basement. Gaining exposure as the main argument for the bb still doesnt feel right to me. It would be much better to introduce a “top new files” category, like proposed by randomnoise in this thread: http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/top-new-files-category/62427
I really think that it would not only benefit new authors or the authors in general, but also the marketplace itself. Why?
It would be an great place for buyers and new customers to come to and check regularly for NEW items. The frontpage with its huge stream of new tracks is too overwhelming and confusing for this while the “popular files” category only tends to cement itself, like randomnoise correctly pointed out.
Thanx Garry, very much appreciated that you’re sharing this. Some good news I’m sure many of us need to hear.
I don’t know….. I’m only 3 months now dealing with stock music and stock music sites and judging from the sites I’ve seen so far, Audiojungle IS a bargain basement for people searching for great music.
I recently removed my first Logo Pack shortly after submitting because I refuse to sell my items at such low price.
Great video! Thx
yes, dorjemusic, same happened to me in December/January. Don’t bother, you’ll be doing fine. Let’s just say, the “Top New Authors” system needs some reviewing doesnt seem to be a priority for AJ/envato atm, so these confusions happen every beginning of a new month.
Edit: they really should get to it, because – like yourself – many great new authors could benefit from it as well as envato/audiojungle themselves, if it weren’t such a stupid system.
For me it’s the other way round – I hate the city and envy you for the countryside (maybe with faster internet ) It’s been a long time now since I last visited your beautiful country.
All the best and many many sales!
Yeees, great moment! Congrats and all the best!!
Thanks so much, Mihai.
I’m starting to understand now how it works. I haven’t seen the pages tab before, always thought they must be somewhere, lol. Also found out that I could post your nice comment on my timeline page by “sharing” it to that page.
Thanks again. Greetings, Basspartout.
Yes, I’m glad they took action. If a case is as clear and obvious as this – this is the action to take. I mean, people like this are ruining envatos reputation – imagine if the company he stole from finds out that their tracks are sold by a “Top new author” on a world wide leading marketplace.
