Yes, there are other sites but you should take into consideration that if the music was rejected for quality reasons then it may be rejected elsewhere. And if it’s not rejected elsewhere then it may not sell. Just my personal experience. Sometimes having a song rejected forces you to take a good hard look at your creation, and often times out will push you to write and mix better.
Congrats! Enjoy your week!
Welcome to the jungle! Be prepared to not ever fully understand buying trends for music on this site. Don’t worry to much about it and just keep writing!
Thanks for the heads up!
I’m back with a full report! Let me just start by saying that it was very cool to get some recognition on the site and be on the front page for a week. I’m not a full time author and by no means do I make a ton of sales on the site, so in comparison to how my portfolio usually performs it was a good week for me.
To confirm what many have said before: Being a featured author does not guarantee major sales. I had 9 sales while I was featured. This is higher than normal for me. I did see an increase in views on my newest item at the time, which is a corporate tech item that got me 7 of those sales, as well as my featured item at the time, which is a metal song that got no sales.
I realize there are many factors at play here, like the fact that it was one of the biggest vacation weeks of the year, that my portfolio doesn’t have a lot of poppy commercial songs, or even the fact that I was featured the first week the home page changed and was shoved all the way to the bottom of the page.
I’m not complaining though. I did get a bunch of followers, and hopefully that will covert to some sales in the future, and it’s nice knowing people at least liked listening to some of my songs enough that they wanted to hear more.
It was fun while it lasted, now I have my fingers crossed for a featured item in the future, I’m sure 10 weeks of exposure is better than 1!
It’s an awesome feeling, good luck!
That was cool, the music of my formative years!
Great job, you’re moving along at an awesome pace!
Very nice You started the feature off at 99 and in just one day you’re at 105. Well done!
Congrat’s, JM for both the feature and the recent achievement of the 100 sales milestone.
You guys are awesome. Thanks for noticing! It was a good day yesterday.
Congratulations! I’d love it if you would log some of your sales data and share it with us. Always nice to see how being featured benefits the author
I am keeping track, and will come back with a full report
And thanks to everyone else for taking the time to comment!
I signed up with Adrev a few weeks ago, and had no problem providing ID. It keeps everyone legit, and on the web that’s a big thing.
