G’day

I experience a different “problem” with sales. No matter how much promotion i do, no matter how much i upload – my sales come every month to a stop as soon as a certain amount has been reached. Be it in the mid of the month or towards the end. All runs smooth until this numbers are on my stats …. coincidence ? illuminati ?

Hello Guys

well, i’m not looking for someone who sings in the most complicated techniques and vibratos all over the place, but for someone who really loves this kind of music and wants to express feelings etc. with it. It has to be “real” as it is not a pop project :)

Anyone who feels he could / would work on this is highy welcome and i will send the link to the existing songs i have already for the project, so you can hear what it will be about. I’d also love to hear 2-3 examples of your work befor we start on the tracks :)

Thanks again and i’m looking forward to hear from you.

Daniel

Hello All

i know there are quite a few talented singers amongst the AJ Authors and i’d like to ask if any of these singers share the love for moody Trip Hop and Deep Electronica stuff ?

If so, i’d be happy to collaborate for some of my work in progress. It’s not only meant to be sold on AJ (not a huge demand for this type of music here), but on iTunes, Beatport and so on.

For any further details please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. Looking forward to hear from you.

Daniel

You need like a 100 songs you made like Bluesy Guitar! That’s where you shine! You would make money if you had a lot more Bad Ass Guitarist tunes! Forget Corporate it’s flooded with tunes, no one will ever notice you! Be the Guitarist that you were meant to be! 8-)

I can only repeat this 1000 times ! Hard to see other AJ authors making much more sales in a short period of time with corporate tracks, but it makes no sense trying to be something you’re not. I tried to do some corporate tracks, but they do hardly sell. Be it that they are not good enough, or that peopke do not expect this from me and do not look in my portfolio for this kind of music.

My best selling stuff is some energetic guitar music by the way and this get’s used for sports shows and advertisings where not the mediocre corporate sound is desired. So, there’s a good chance you will sell guitar music as well :)

Many of us where complaining about the search engine since quite a long time. Every now and then we adapt to the search engine routine trying to get the most sales possible. Everytime they change something on the algorythm without letting us know what magic it does now, some authors experience lower sales.

I honestly don’t know where the problem is to simply have the search engine working with the tags and maybe also use some of item description. But the whorst thing is having a search engine and not knowing where the heck it get’s it’s results from.

Many buyers possibly adapted to this problem by simply browsing the top item or top authors pages. By that they find what they need in the shortest time, even if there where maybe better suiting tracks burried in the marketplace (time is money).

Anyway, i’m not sure if i’d be happy when everything changes again and i see my sales droping dramaticaly because of that. I also have family to feed and rely on some of the income from Envato.

I know this has been discussed more than once here, BUT it would be really nice if the reviewers would at least give some type of feedback detailing the reason for a rejection. I don’t see why something as quick as a sentence or two is so hard to fathom versus the copy/paste statement we get now that tells the author absolutely nothing.
I agree with you. Would be nice to know the exact reason why a song gets declined. The generic feedback does NOTHING to help the author fix or avoid the same mistakes next time around.

Well, i might earn even more negative bonus from this post, but it’s freedom of speech :)

First of all, it’s not my intention to offend any of the reviewers as they do a good job most of the time. But i think it’s not a good practice that reviewers are also authors here and have been around here a while before being a reviewer for Audiojungle. Reviewers should be completely “neutral” and not even active in the forums, as they could very easy like or dislike authors based on postings in the forums.

Furthermore i find it a bit strage that a reviewer with (for example) a classical music background reviews a trance or hiphop track. Is he really aware about the production techniques this genre uses ?

I just had a rejection of a Dub track and got a quite detailed answer why it has been rejected. But how can you ask for “natural and realistic” sounding instruments in a Dub track where everything is about FX and Sonic manipulation ? How can you critisize the (slightly) distorted organ sound when this was intended and a very common practice in this genre ?

As i said, not to be understood offensive as i’m sure he did that with good intentions in mind, but it’s just not really as i should be in my opinion.
