Mate, I’ve had a few gins and this just blew my mind. What you smoking over there in Sweden?
Would I spend my days promoting, tagging, tweeting etc for another mans joy? Haha, NO! Perhaps if I were an SEO expert and believed in someones music that much I’d set up some sites and rake in the referral cash.
It’s worryingly quite a common occurrence these days. Global brands on the web, tv ads, my local supermarket even plays watermarked AJ tracks as I shop all the time!
I still don’t see much of an upside when they advertise hard rejections and low sales, but that’s just my two cents. Each to their own.
Haha, I’m definitely not recommending moaning to boost sales. But in a crowded marketplace with everyone fighting for exposure it might not always be a bad thing. Just another slightly twisted way of looking at it.
Musicbox has the right idea suggesting the addition of an official non public moan zone. A place for old geezers talking about ‘the way things used to be’.
As long as these frustrations are kept to their allocated ‘moan zones’ I don’t see a problem and regard it as healthy.
I also think it’s a little insensitive to have a pop at the authors currently complaining of low sales. For some AJ is a bit of fun and pays just enough to keep the lights on. For others, especially in some asian and eastern European countries its their main income stream and has been for some time. Authors with mouths to feed quite understandably have the right to vent and figure out whats going on with the market when there main, previously steady income stream bombs.
Does this damage our brand? I personally highly doubt it.. Another way of looking at it would be ‘There’s no such thing as bad publicity’. A buyer could be so intrigued by your incessant moaning that they check out your profile and buy some tracks
Awesome! Looks great and so much easier for buyers to check alt versions. Cheers developers!
nice to see a soulbrother here.
Haha, likewise S-DKG! Great selection there, you’re making me re-think now I doubt many of us can deny Tom Moultons influence!
wow, you really made me think. Here are three of many
Fela Kuti – Ginger Baker – Roy Ayres
interesting facts: Ginger and Roy have both played with Fela & I was lucky enough to meet Roy Ayres two weeks ago.
Happy birthday man! Totally envious of your pub meal
Once again I feel like I’ve hit my monthly sales cap.. After an explosive and exciting start to the month its like someone slammed the breaks on. Frustrating to say the least
