Great! 2 sales today and with just a few days left to go in May, I’m creeping up slowly on last years figures for May, which is re-assuring.
24 for the month now!
“Crazy Antics” – amazing!!! It really awesome! I like it!!
Thanks Gorynich! Really kind of you to say so!
I should have added that the quieter music in the middle is a different track by someone else. “Crazy Antics” is just the fast music at the beginning and end!
I don’t want to be accused of taking the credit for someone else’s music now do I?
Fantastic achievement! Congratulations!
Now how about a picture with you and a Quattro Staggione Pizza with all the toppings?
Just got home from a social visit and found I’d made 2 sales, including a pack!
Not sure if it was just a coincidence, but earlier, I’d put up a Music Showreel on my social media sites that included three of the pieces that sold!
22 for the month so far!
It’s a huge holiday in the US tomorrow (Memorial Day) and everyone takes the entire weekend off. Gonna be a sloowwwww weekend, no way around it.
+ It’s also a Bank Holiday Weekend here in the UK too which might explain things. I’m surprised I made a sale at all!
10-20 years ago you had to be able to play, produce and be more inventive. It was a lot more creative and original. Now a lot of kids can pick up software with pro production sounds and throw out tracks willy nilly and add to the millions who are doing this, most with almost identical sound. Sadly (as in the commercial music business) it will keep going the same way and it will be harder and harder to make money at this.
Agreed. That’s why I always try to compose eclectic music that’s a bit different. The sales might not be as high as the more commercial style, but you get a great sense of satisfaction when your music gets placed somewhere “special”, with clients who want something a bit unique!
This is not true. Almost half of May i spent under impression (supported by facts), that OLDER tracks selling better then newer.FirstNote said
Your only chance is to keep uploading and building the portfolio as wide as possible.
This is true. However, this only emphasises the problem and exponentially accelerates the race to the bottom for everyone.While your hopeful new author grinds out new tracks day by day, their older tracks have already fallen under the radar and stopped selling. The result: Sales-to-tracks-ratio of 1,X which can hardly be a sustainable performance target.
Hear, hear! I’ve been regularly selling 2 year old tracks of late, while my newer tracks have sold nothing.
The only thing predictable about sales is their unpredictability!
