If you were an H-sized blond chick then I would assume that putting your picture as an avatar might have some impact on your sales. But as along as you’re a dude, the only thing that would bring you sales is outstanding quality of your items, not some cool logo or cheesy mugshot.
As I see it, putting a pic of yourself for avatar is a narcissistic urge of the ego that wants to be seen, which is natural but not advantageous in any way, and in some cases it can even bring more harm than good. See this post for example. Apparently these folks also thought that putting “a sweet pic of themselves” on the album cover is a good idea.
Some really bad album covers:
there is sitting a really nice girl with some budget and buy the music.I bet she listens to the music on her laptop speakers.
But maybe it’s the best to allow an average person to pick music for something intended for average public.
I worked in a supermarket as a kid and because the manager knew that I’m into music he assigned me to prepare a CD with background music. Well, as someone who despised average mainstream music I included songs of my taste, like Water Drums by Union Jack, Smoking Japanese Babe by FSOL and such…And most people’s reaction was like: WTF?!
Now that I have Adam monitors I hear some severe bass-related mistakes in some of my tracks and I wonder “how on earth was that approved?”
it’s based on the amount of money you’ve made, so if you’ve past the thresholds for earning a higher percentage, then presumably you can go non-exclusive, then exclusive again later and start on something like 51% (or higher).
that’s right. I was referring to switching your account to non-exclusive and then going back to exclusive.
Pensados place channel is not available in my country, however I accessed it via proxy and I see that some videos have $9.99 tag next to them. What does mean, one has to pay to watch them?
