SkinnyAtlasMusic saidAlthough its a nice idea, there is one problem with this….it may well happen …that a buyer after typing a keyword and browsing through items may end up buying an item which he initially dint intend to when he typed the keywords, hence possibly making wrong keyword or tag additions to an item.
Cant AJ track what was typed in and if they clicked on our item and purchased and email us the tags automatically to help us define search tags?
Have a listen to this harmonica based track: http://audiojungle.net/item/harmonica-symphonic-rock-/2012040
If appropriateness of item tags or keywords enhances sales, I want your take on this…
Having a feature for buyer or a non-buyer visitor to recommend tags or keywords for an item.
Whenever you listen to an item especially a sound effect, you make a perception of that sound and in your mind come a number of keywords that could actually represent the sound. On the other hand, it also happens that the author of a particular sound is not able to tag his item correctly because of language problems, perception problems or simply skipping of an important tag.
I feel a feature where authors, buyers or guests can suggest tags to each other….. could help the community immensely and the whole market earnings.
Just reached the 700 Sales mark. Thanks to Envato and the whole Community. Good Luck to All.
Uploading helps surely. But then there are days when you upload a lot and earn nothing….. and there are those when you do not upload anything but sell a lot. I think its both …the already available items on the shelf and the new ones coming in …play their respective roles towards healthy sales.
I expect them to concentrate on sound effects in equality with music items, especially when it comes to track licencing.
Well! Thats actually a tough question. But surely movements, transitions and transformations are hot at the moment. In this fast changing techno world, the importance and demand of a sound effect may vary as quickly. In one of my earlier threads ( http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/help-predict-the-future-of-sound-fx/146632?page=1&message_id=1146940#1146940 ), I for similar reasons raised the quest alarm for the future of SFX.
Also over a single year, SFX sales vary depending on time of year and various occasions and festivals around the world.
Still obviously the best source to understand the true current trend for SFX is to follow the most popular SFX section on multiple stock sfx players and keep studying the trend over a period of time.
fxprosound is right in pointing out the keywords “corporate motivational” because its from the corporate sector the ultimate need for such items comes. They understand modern day customers’ requirements THE MOST.
Still waiting for your feedback guys.
A few months back I uploaded a AJ watermarked video to advertise one of my sound effects/clips. I recently got this comment on this video:
“seriously? you guys don’t want us to steal these sound effects from you? Then don’t post it on youtube with a water mark!!!?”
which prompted me to turn the video ‘private’ on scary grounds.
When we see all the articles related to ..how to advertise your stuff on the Internet…. I think Youtube and Vimeo videos are one of the most featured tips. But when you get to understand that there are hundreds of tutorials on ..how to remove watermarks from videos… thats really something that turns you off. Even worse in case of sfx where there is no royalty thing , no Adrev like services, no million user or broadcast licenses.
Guys I want your suggestions and remedies/prevention measures for solving such problems related specifically to sound effect designers. and ofcourse on …What is Envato doing or planning to do for sound fx designers?
