I only have two months of data, but it averaged out to 1$ for every 4500 plays with Adrev’s cut already deducted. So not much by the looks of it but some songs can really take off on youtube so it does add up to a fair amount sometimes. Definately worth the trouble and of course great for tracking where your music is played in general.
Here’s a link to a youtube playlist of his best of CD: High Times: Singles 1992-2006 [DVD] Warning: feet may begin to instantly tap. Please keep in mind the below floor neighbours If you live in an appartement. Listener discretion is advised
Never heard of anyone dancing in a bad / discouraged mood especially to Jamiroquai
Listen to Jamiroquai? High times!
@Meg I thought I was the only one! The ‘new 80’s’ genre is growing it seems.
Maybe one suggestion: The Black Keys?
Thanks BlueLionMusic! So we do not pay them anything except a % of revenue if any is ever realized?
No problem! I haven’t cashed in on any earnings just yet as I have only recently been seeing the results come in but like AudioJungle, they show gross earnings and net earnings (20% detraction) and I would assume that would be it. Atleast that’s how it show up on my account data.
I still have major concerns about how this affects customers and I think it could cause pretty serious backlash against this marketplace if more authors did it. I know I would be pretty pissed off if I paid for a track, used it in my Youtube video and then noticed someone else was making ad revenue off it! And what if the person does not notice this for a year? Yes, I get that it is fairly easy to dispute with Youtube but I hope AJ and AdRev and Youtube, etc. can get together to work this out. A customer who buys an RF track should not have to then prove to Youtube that they own the right to use it. I really don’t like systems that punish everyone to catch a few criminals!
Well, just like airport security, we all have to go through it I suppose. If every author started adopting services like Adrev, at least us musicians finally get our fair share of “piracy profit” cause it’s not going to go away any time soon IMO.
Ofcourse if there was a way to connect AudioJungle with Youtube Content ID/Adrev etc that would be amazing for all parties involved!
Signup etc is free of charge, there’s also no monthly subscription model or anything like that. They do charge 20% of revenue ofcourse to keep their business running but I’m happy to oblige. I signed up for an account, uploaded my tracks and waited it out. Indeed, I was worried as well about potential customer confusion but I haven’t hit any major roadblocks as of yet.
First earnings/results from Adrev are finally showing up! Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention guys! Looks like a 3-4 month delay sounds about right by the way.
I’m very happy with the earnings so far too!
