Congratulations, and welcome to AudioJungle!
I have actually seen a sales boost this month, not a drop. I’m very new so I only get a few sales a month, but I’ve seen a sale almost every day this month so far.
A quick tip: If you would like to use an image stored on your Dropbox account, be sure to put the image in your Public/ folder, otherwise it won’t show up.
2 sales already, and we’re barely 5 days in!
I think the idea is that most users are smart enough to open a link in a new window/tab at their own discretion. Since opening in a new tab/window is not something everyone likes, it makes sense to leave the choice up to the user since every browser supports the functionality.
I don’t know if that’s Envato’s thinking behind the design, but it’s a common rationale and one that I tend to agree with.
3 sales in August. Oof! To be fair, I’m new and only have 5 logos and 3 songs in my portfolio. It’s not much, but it’s definitely trending up! Up from 2 sales in July. I’m getting there; slowly but surely.
1. I think it’s a pretty nice track, but it sounds a little hollow at times. There’s no bass line or strings, both of which I think would give the track a much richer tone. Otherwise I really dig the composition. The percussion is particularly solid. Nice work there!
2. I highly recommend reading this article full of AudioJungle promotion tips. It really helped me out a lot; so many promotion opportunities I wasn’t considering! It’s really all about exposure. If people can’t find your song, they won’t buy it. Check out those tips, follow the ones that make sense for you and I’m sure you’ll see your first sale soon!
The most tricky and important thing in my opinion is to find an optimal way to “teach” buyers to purchase the right type of licenses and find a universal and effective way to control/prevent any violations.
Pretty sure, that plenty of buyers often don’t care about license types and just pick the cheapest one.
I think something that contributes to this problem is the fact that a standard license is chosen by default. I suspect buyers would be more aware of the license options if they were required to choose a license before clicking the ‘Purchase’ button.
