Nice One! thanks for sharing
Congrats! I know how it feels
I just wanted to congratulate soundroll-music on a great achievement which is becoming the first author on AJ to receive the Blue Steel paw.
This is really inspiring for us AudioJungle authors. Congrats Dmitry and keep up the great work.
I’m really happy to see AJ growing, with every month being better than the previous in terms of sales as well as overall quality of music. I’m really proud to be a part of Audiojungle.
Well Done! Keep it up, it’s well deserved.
Great video! Envato changed my life, literally.
Thanks for everything!! Congrats!
Neat idea guitarjock.
I also think that it would be great as an addition to the current referral system, not as a replacement.
I don’t see why it shouldn’t be implemented soon.
Welcome to the Marketplaces Josh!
Hey guys, I see many of you are speaking about my increase in sales but that also accounts for multiple reasons. One, I actually did earn more sales then usual for my generic/TRAX items since I was featured author. It was a surprising feat, but that of course wouldn’t account for all my total sales. Two, this trax competition. I too have been mass emailing family and friends regarding this competition for over a week. Yes, it is much time and effort to communicate to family and friends regarding such a competition. So, when their feedback was less than positive and my sales returns was quite low for the number emails and phone calls I made, I decided to take things into my own hands. I ended up asking envato support if I could just purchase the TRAX for my family and friends given that they pay me the $2. They told me that as long as I abided by the license rules and I purchased the song multiple times for each family member, it is ok. So, the after getting “pledges” (basically getting the money) from family and friends, I just bought them all this week so that I also earn 70% commission, I didn’t see a harm in what I did and honestly never wanted upset anyone. From the way I see it, I’m not not infringing the rules and simply making the purchasing experience simpler for my family and friends. I hope that clarifies any doubts you have and quite honestly, Timmcmorris and Melodality have such stunning work, its quite impossible to compete with them. I am only trying to stay in the battle, that is all guys.
First of all, thanks everybody for your kind words about my music, I really appreciate it, and thanks to those who purchased my TRAX without knowing me personally or even virtually.
DarkSunz, thanks to you too but I would strongly disagree with your points here, though I do think your stuff is quite good and could have achieved success without any gaming.
Based on your words, I could easily say that I have 50 friends and relatives and buy each one of them 1 copy of all of my 8 TRAX songs, that would be 400 sales, and would still be less than 1000$ offered as a prize. But don’t you think this is unfair? How could anyone or Envato stuff check how many friends you really have or have they given you any money? Think about it!
That being said, I did actually ask my friends and family to sign up and support me, but they signed up with their own accounts and names/paypal accounts, this way it is fair and doesn’t raise any questions or doubts.
For me, personally, this contest isn’t about money at all, it’s more about getting more people to listen to the music that comes from my heart, and took a lot of time and hard work to make it sound like it sounds, as opposed to my ROyalty-free music which I compose daily and a lot.
I’m not sure how this contest will end, but I’m sure that I won’t regret taking part in it whatever happens.
Wish you all good luck !
