Unbelievable… I still do not understand why the US government keeps the firearms legal !!! At this right moment, I would not be proud to be an american citizen… May the victims rest in peace.

Well, I’m proud to be a American citizen. Its the bad guys who have the guns. So making it so good people can’t have guns for protection wont help. Bad people will always get guns, so imagine if only bad people had guns.

I have a firearm carry permit and I had to go through all kinds of checks to get one, if you are a felon or have a mental issues you will not be getting one legally. I just wish someone in that theater was legally carrying a firearm, could of stopped it. See making firearms illegal does not really help anyone.

Its good. Now you should look at your portfolio and find out what works and what doesn’t and go in the obvious right direction with future releases. Plus you should try the promotion thing, it works.

Hey guys, I want to re-record one of my tracks to improve the overall quality and mix, does anyone know the policy on this? Should I delete my track and then just upload a new version or can I just upload a newly recorded version?

Just go to edit on your item page and upload new files to replace old file and write in the notes area to the reviewer what you have done and want done. The way the review queue is now it should be super fast to change.

Wow that is fast. Looks like they have figured out a great review system, all though considering the wait times that other sites have, even a week was amazing considering the volume of uploads A.J. gets.

The only downside is if you upload to a high competition category with lots of uploads(corporate) your track will get pushed to the back pages way to fast like mine did. Its too bad because I see that people who have a break out hit and just squeeze their way into the bottom of the top seller list can’t seem to stay there.

I really wish there was a way to really promote new break out hits that have all the potential to become life changing(financially) songs. At least featured items on the main page should be the top selling item just uploaded the previous week. I see a lot of feature songs that are good but just don’t seem to sell even when featured. Its almost a waste.

There are some sites like bottledvideo com that have free footage to use with a credit but if you want to look professional and have videos that make the watcher think you are pro you should use videohive footage. Its way higher quality. They really have awesome stuff, plus you can find the right kind of footage to go with your music and you can show how well your song works with it and make someone want to use it as well and possibly get a sale and referral credit.

I have bought and used some VideoHive footage for my videos, mostly things I can loop over and over for the length of my song, time lapse stuff works nice. You can leave a referral link promoting their footage as well and maybe get a referral sale off someone who might need stock footage as well.

Its cool Timofey, just putting it out there because it seems like a lot of these types of topics lately. Plus you don’t want you to kill your chances of collaboration, if VideoHive guys read our forums they probably wont want to hook up with the author saying he can’t get any sales. Good Luck to you and hopefully things turn around for those having a hard time selling.

Plus in all fairness to slow times for you, you got to get more than 2 tracks out there.

Like mentioned before, be careful what you write on these forums, buyers do read them and any negativity is not good for anyone. Plus in business which this is and should be treated as, you should always project a positive image even when things are down.
