Took the plunge, hope it pans out I’ll keep you guys posted.
@GunPowderBob: Again, this varies, all depending on type of advertisement that runs on the video, how many embed views it’s had, etc. Also, it depends if the video owner clears the claim half way through it’s monetization. Figures in your AdRev dashboard vary wildly, because of these factors, so it’s impossible to give a set figure. That’s not how it works really.It’s all about the culmination of views across all videos on YouTube featuring your music, rather than say one video that has 100,000 views featuring your music. I’ve got videos in on my stats that have had hundreds of thousands of views, but earned very little, because the videomaker cleared the claim with their license after a couple of weeks, for example.
Thanks for the info! Really helps us authors make up our minds.
Hey guys, interesting discussion. If one of your tracks has say 100.000 views on youtube, and your fingerprinted track makes sure to put ads before it, how much pocket money would we be talking about here?
Thanks for the opportunity Orpheus and good luck with your projects!
Might be cool if envato added “Item Requests” as sort of a feature (seperate page etc) where buyers and other VH authors could send a request and there would be competitions around it. A page with more exposure and where you could clearly see date of entry and competition close date among other things. Probably has been mentioned before and is something they would consider after programming another gazillion higher priority things but hey, Envato, if you’re listening: if you ever get bored, might want to implement this feature Just sayin’.
Ah titles, the bane of my existence.
I wish there was a clear answer for this so I wouldn’t have to tear my hair out trying to figure out what works. Lately I’ve been using more targetted keywords for my titles. It never hurts IMO, envato can suddenly start giving titles more weight like it was in the past and you might be stuck with 100 items with creative titles that are never searched.
Would be nice to be more creative with my titles again, but I’m still sceptical because of my experience with creative titles from a year ago (creative title tracks were only sold on first few days of release). Could be wrong though for some people creative titles seem to be working.
Maybe it’s just one of those things you shouldn’t try to figure out, and instead focus on uploading more to perhaps get one viral track. However, certainly you must always try to give the customer an accurate indication of the mood/feel/style/genre of the track, goes without saying.
I still get. I do promotion on Vimeo, Soundcloud and Youtube..and yes you will get the badge.
Interesting stuff! I’m getting around 15 clickthroughs per month at the moment, not a single registered member even though. Definately something I’m looking to improve on. To actually see some money being made with referrals is an exciting prospect. Thanks for sharing.
