You are right… I did not monitored this behaviour However it seems that once an item or author become very popular, the sales begin to happen in a very predictable way. Don’t ask me why…

i have posted a thread on this topic: http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/could-sales-on-aj-explained-by-statistics/140599

i’m monitoring the total sales of different authors with different amount of sales. the experiment is still going but i could anticipate that my feeling is that selling on AJ is quite a statistic process, almost predictable in some cases.

you have more or less a linear increase of sales in time but the amount seems to depend on total sales you have.

so, the more total sales you have, the more you will sell per day.

i’m posting some preliminary graph to explain this:

sales per day vs. total sales :

sales during time for different sales amounts:

of course not all the trends are so perfect. i observed that towards lower amount of sales there is more scatter. but at higher sales (>5000) there is a nearly perfect linear behaviour. I choose both top seller authors and several random authors with lower sales, trying to represent all “total sales” categories.

i cannot give indications about how to increase sales, but it seems to me quite possible that the more you have sold in the past, the more you will sell in the future. quite obious eh!?

honestly i did not understand what you mean… :)

another parameter that would be interest to consider is the total number of items on sale during time of the authors with different amount of sales.

but now is late to add it… maybe i’ll start again my data collecion this autumn.

No, happy does not always mean ukulele!
That’s the reason why i’m using other acoustic instruments to make my “happy” tracks!

This is not an ukulele

The happy mandolin

it seems cool, indeed, but i noticed that the majority of trending items have already hundreds, if not thousands, of sales. very very few items have less than 50 sales. so, the idea might be cool, but i suppose it will be another feature to let sell even more the people/items that already have a lot of sales.

i would suggest to limit the possibility of “trending items” to the ones that acutally need to be boosted/noticed. maybe, in order to be trending, an item should have less than some hundred sales (200-300)?

This is my last recording, called travelling> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPl73emZyHw

It was a melody I composed back in 2010 when my and my girlfriend (now wife!) were visiting Xian in China.

I have arranged it for flute, classical guitar and “guitar cello”, an hybrid Frankenstein instrument i built myself starting from an old guitar by adding a cello bridge. All recroded in Sonar 8.5 through a Neumann TLM 102 and a focusrite ISA ONE, mixed with creamware/Sonic Core plugins.

Obviously it has a somewhat “chinese” feeling and i think it’s quite romantic, I hope you like it! :)
