My latest bet was on real madrid and they lost miserably against dortmund, what a shame!

On topic, I could bet on you NOT reaching 100 sales by that time! This must be motivating for you :)

Bottom line, I’ll get a buyer’s badge :D

It’s bad business for the authors having an item in the bundle as well. Now 10.000 potential buyers won’t buy their items because they already got it for $0.05 each?
Could not disagree more. I’ve made a ton of money in the bundle (made more in first 4 days than in 8 months of being here) and my bundle track has been in the Top Sellers because of all the bundle hype and it is looking to be in the Top Sellers again this week with 12 sales so far.

Congrats on your earnings. By the way, I want to know how much “a ton of money” make exactly? :)

Anyway, don’t think in the short-term. Selling at $0.05 (or so) you’re both undercutting yourself and the whole market. I don’t want to argue about it. Undercutting kills any business, it’s a proven fact.

Someone please kill this bundle now lol! It probably stole half my week’s earnings. On one hand you are offering a single track for $17, on the other hand you are selling a whole bundle of goods for only $20. This is unacceptable!

I can understand the birthday bundle as a compliment to the loyal customers but what is this corporate bundle? It’s bad business for the authors having an item in the bundle as well. Now 10.000 potential buyers won’t buy their items because they already got it for $0.05 each?

If this is good business, let’s all of us offer our whole portfolio for $20, take the money and go away lol!

Sales almost came to a halt. Don’t know if it’s the bundle or price increase :(

Buyers can contact you anytime for such a deal and you can take down the track from AJ if a deal is made. Isn’t it better to get the whole money instead of 50%? ;)

As for me (just so you don’t say “aha! Why aren’t you non-exclusive”) I’ve put a lot of work into my AJ account and my sales have been pretty decent, recently everyone has had a quiet period, but otherwise I’m quite happy here. So, I’m not wanting to go non-exclusive or leave anytime soon. Also I’m focusing on other things right now so an exclusive one website deal works for me.

Going non-exclusive would cause a serious loss of income. Instead of that I’m keeping my exclusive portfolio on AJ and building another portfolio for the other stock music sites.

Currently this approach seems to be working. Having multiple sources of income is the only way to make a living from music.

But if the only way you can earn decent money here is to be like Tim or soundroll, the 99% rest of us are screwed…

Unfortunately, that’s the only way. I guess only top 20 authors or so can make a decent living from AJ sales. Rest of us need to look at it as pocket money or look for other opportunities outside AJ.

As a newbie, you join audiojungle and say “I make money with my music, I’m so happy!” Then you invest a lot of time and money and two years later you say “I can’t make money with my music, i’m so screwed!” That’s our problem. I’m in the same boat as well :)

....Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect to be like Tim McMorris or Soundroll, I just want to feel that I’m get some progress. And I feel a little lost, like I’m going to nowhere.

The cold hard truth is you either expect to be as good as soundroll or be content with where you are. :D

Each year it’s getting harder to sell regular underscore type of music with no distinctive feature even if it’s produced with best quality.

I wouldn’t recommend paid promotion (adwords, etc.) but you can try youtube.
