JHungerX saidHere is all the info you need! JHunger is the man! always so nice and with the right words
After 3 years of favoring non-exclusivity (and saying so quite strongly on the forums), I bit the bullet and created this account. I do still get more outside AJ than I do from AJ, but in my case time is limited (day job, family, etc.), and I tend to want to create music during that time. In consequence, I have more songs than I can upload everywhere and I’m woefully out of date on all but the best selling sites. So I figured having some of them go to an upload once spot would be a good idea, and so far it’s been working out pretty nicely.
I believe that you can make more revenue going non-exclusive, and also you’re not putting all your eggs in one basket (any number of things out of your control could affect sales). But to maximize it you have to put in the time and energy to keep up to date everywhere, constantly be looking for other places to sell (and be willing to waste time on sites that don’t produce results, of which there are many), and also split any marketing among several sites.
One more thing to consider – I agree with DynamiteAudio, but I would use the maximum 70% commission rate when comparing against sales from other sites, even if it seems out of reach. If I had known that I would reach that 70% commission rate on my other account within a few years, I would have definitely been exclusive from the get go (rates were a lot different back in 2009, so it didn’t make sense at the time :)).BTW I am still very active on my non exclusive account – not sunsetting it by any means. I’m just expanding my horizons with the exclusive account
It gives me the munchies!
I only ask them to write their opinion and then they have the right to vote. I think not ask for much.
Of course not, that is fair enough. But the system is already made and it doesn´t look like they are going to change it. There should be a solution within the actual system. Would be nice to hear the voice of AJ on this subject.
Hi Allegro, it´s sad to hear that, all over the forum there are stories about this happening. I will give you my humble opinion, I don´t know so much about AJ buyers/clients. I believe they look trough the comments and listen to the music. And if everything goes right, perhaps then they look to the stars.
I believe this are collaboration between AJ composers, but FatihPesmen just want to post a collab with a NON AJ composer, so, as PurpleFog said, as long as the lyrics aren´t registered in other site or label you can submit your track without issues.
You can always submit a ticket to support if you cant find the answer in the Forums.
Have a nice trip in AJ!
Good News Michelle, thanks! I ´ll wait till the new search is implemented, surely you will create a new post to warn all the users about this awaited update!
The problem is Envato/audio jungle not having a proper license for TV broadcast for a much higher price. Seems like they are missing out on such a great opportunity for us and them.pinkzebra saidEverything’s said here! All the problem (if there was one when i open this ticket) is that Envato has to adjust the price for AJ items. Why? Because there is no only two ways of using a track. Outside of AJ, I don’t charge the same price for big company, a small creative agency or an unprofessional videomaker… Even if the product at the end it’s the same, the price would be relative to the budget… And I think that licenses have to go the same way.
I don’t think it makes sense to anyone that it should cost the same to license a track for a national Suzuki TV ad as it does to license the same track for a YouTube cat video.
When you check other music marketplaces, all prices are relative to the use (and it’s usely more expensive than AJ, almost multiplied by 3 or 4…).
At first sight, this commercial is good for authors, but is way more convenient for the agency that bought the music in AJ. A little change to the price tables is not going to hurt AJ, just adding more options for national or worldwide commercials; without changing the other prices.
Art-of-Sound has already explained very well about the license, but I’d like to go a little off topic (not much though ) and ask (once again): How is it possible that for a broadcasting use (of ALL kinds: radio, TV, regional, national etc…) ENVATO still does not have a separate (much higher in price) license…???
In my opinion selling a track for broadcasting is much more important than selling for re-selling purpose…People who buy for commercial for ex. have a high budget and their final product will always be something much more important than the usual web video…
I’m fine with selling with 17$ to an independent web project…BUT I’m pretty sure you agree that selling a track for that same 17$ and then seeing it (and hearing it) on national television tens of times a day is NOT quiet alright….
I’ve heard so many many times AudioJungle tracks on national television both in Romania and Italy… TimMcMorris, metrolightmusic, jhunger and so on…
Sorry for the long post and I know that has already been discussed but it’s something that still hasn’t been solved…
+1 Is something thats always discussed but never worked out
That is both great and bad! Nice to listen your music on TV but a good moment to analyze how Extended licences works. I ll stay tune to this thread.
