Hello All, I am looking for a plugin or way to password protect sections of a wordpress website. I have three different types of user for the website that need to be able to be protected by different passwords.
I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
If volume was all that mattered they could lower the prices and raise the volume but at some point volume does not make up for price. I truly believe they could raise their prices 20%-30% and not see a drop in sales. They might even see a bump in sales. Sometimes when something is priced too low shoppers look elsewhere because it appears too good to be true.
This is a little off topic as well, but I would like to see the percentage for non-exclusive authors raised a bit as well. The low sale price and low % combined are tough.
+ (if not more)
This idea leads to a dark road. In essence, almost a pyramid scheme were those already at the top stand to reap more than those on the bottom just by having more sales. This kind of system is already in place. Pricing needs to be structured regardless of sales.
In fact, let authors decide prices above and beyond the base price set by the editors with a cap. say, nor more than $15 above the base price. Believe me, the market will decide that Sh*t and people will either keep prices high or, lower them to remain competitive.I mean, no offense tim but your suggestion seems to only really benefit the top tier authors such as yourself who seem to be doing this full time. Those of us that don’t shouldn’t be penalized for that.
I disagree with you on two points, I am not sure how a pyramid scheme is already in place..
Also I am not sure why I hear complaints against the top tier authors – it they are doing this full time and are putting out great work they should be rewarded. We were all new authors here at one time or another and it does take a while to grow your business here – just like any other business.
I don’t believe raising prices to the 19 to 24 dollar range will scare away buyers, that would still make AJ the least expensive site for music.
I think they are underpriced – when you start looking at other quality sites that sell audio AJ could easily raise their prices to to the $24-$29 dollar range and still be very competitive.
I was just curious how long it generally takes an author to create a track, I find that getting the track ready for sale, key wording, figuring out a name and description, creating the AJ watermark… take longer than creating the track, or at least it feels that way.
