Raquel, I was going to say to try to increase your portfolio to help with visibility too, but you beat me to it! :)

I guess for those of us who enjoy composing, uploading regularly and building up our portfolios is one good solution for visibility. :)

Also, it’s not always “how many” are looking, but “who” is looking. For example: I have had nearly 200 viewers in the last week viewing the track that sold a “music broadcast & film” license, but not one of them has purchased it. Other tracks with just a few views have sold though.

Secretly though, I’m hoping that some of the other 200 are actually just killing time, saving up their money to buy more “music broadcast & film” licenses…ha ha!

Today I had another hard rejection on videohive. I’m tired of trying, it’s a waste of time, so I think I’ll focus on just the music. I think what strategy to follow, but I lost a lot of time trying to do vh projects. At least two of them I think they deserved to be there (Kids Gallery and Dark Maze Trailer, you can see them on my youtube account, my video templates playlist, if you are curious). I will try to use them in any way as a promotion. I do not rule give away as freebies. I hope to start tomorrow with a new plan and new energy. I’m so tired now.
Hey, you are a great composer, I don’t know anything about videomaking, but I do know about music and you are doing really well, so keep going and try not to be disheartened, you are very talented. Dig deep and get stuck into the next masterpiece! x

Raquel, stay positive. Your two top sellers have 70 odd sales between them…more than mine. Keep on writing great tracks like these and you’ll do great, I’m sure. I think sometimes we try to be too diverse when maybe we should focus on our strong genres and do more tracks in a similar style. I know I do! :)

Quite a good month – 52 sales and record earnings. :)

Yep…that would qualify as “quite a good month” in my book too Graham! :)

I’m finding the complete opposite to many of you here! In terms of actual earnings, I’m having my best month ever. In terms of actual sales, I’m not far behind my best month with still 9 days to go!

24 so far! :)

I wanted to give you all a quick update on this thread. I contacted nbc on this issue. When it came to possible illegal use of music they were actually very quick and responsive. It took a trail of about 5 people to find the person who actually used my music for the show. Anyway to make it quick the appropriate broadcast license was purchased for the show so all is good now.

Congrats! :)

October has been my most consistent month of sales so far at AJ. I’ve had a sale almost every day and those odd days without a sale have been either preceded or followed by a day with 2-3 sales to make up the difference. I hope this kind of consistency keeps up permanently. :) 20 sales by the 19th October.
Exactly what’s happening to me) A dry day is compensated by either two sales the day before or after, making it a single daily average sale.

It’s happened again. No sales on Sunday/Monday and then, as if to compensate, 2 sales today! :)

22 sales on the 21st of the month…so still managing to average a sale a day! :D

Consistency is indeed a must on this marketplace, consistent sales = consistent uploads. Hit the 700+ sales this morning….......Yay! :)

I second that “Yay” Graham. Congrats! :)

Great! Consistency is very nice to have in this market! :)
