Goes by upload date not sale, sorry man, great sales and music though, you will do fine here. As far as guys being members for a year and being considered new, I started a non-exclusive account back in march but didn’t upload till this past Oct 2012 so that’s probably the case.
Your first upload was oct 27th, which makes you new for the month of October not November.
The ratings system as it stands is just visual noise, or worse a pointless deterrent to a buyer even bothering to preview a track. For the life of me I cannot understand why anyone would listen to, and then buy a track only to decide it wasn’t good. Seems like a buyers remorse meter to me.
I don’t even pay attention to the ratings. I’d love to see them gone so buyers do not either.
In further thought, I guess this is what we signed up here for. I guess if its a youtube spot only and just one video I guess the reality is 14 bucks gets it. Unless they would want exclusive rights to use that song and they would want you to take it off the market.
If you can try to get them to give you credit for the song in the video description, at least that could be worth something. Good luck, and congrats on your song being chosen.
I’m pretty sure a couple of other guys took songs off AudioJungle because of a similar situation, they probably privately negotiated a WAY better deal. I would try that if they are indeed a big name company, they probably would rather do that than deal with a vague license agreement that is offered here that nobody seems to ever understand. I get emails all the time about what the license really means as far as usage.
I think companies are willing to pay more if it means a safer deal legally, it makes them feel better. They probably think its too good to be true to get a track for that cheap. Its unreal the price for such usage, an absolute joke matter a fact. Way to leave a ton of money on the table!
Sad Gareth, your like the last of the foundation authors who still actually post meaningful stuff in the forums and aren’t totally disenchanted like the other original top authors who built this market place up. Now it looks like even your ready to go build up another market place(competitor).
I have only been here over a year, but it’s crazy how this forum and community attitude has changed and yes quality of threads. It’s either, “hey I got my 8th sale”, or a complaint that’s been asked for but never receives attention and just gets some stock line from staff.
It’s obvious people really like A.J. and care about what happens here and that’s why feature request are made. It would just be nice to see something that has been on top of the request list actually be implemented.
