Yes Alumo, dead on.. In a business where the only one really gaining(in this situation) is the customer and both supplier and distributor are both losing out big time it should probably be a top priority being looked into and fixed fast.
WebRa… of course we are free not to sell on AJ! i was just “judging” and “complaining” with people who make commercials for big companies… it seems to me that they highly devaluate music in their projects! i would expect, from people with big names and big budget, to be more “creative” and “demanding” on the music part. It’s very sad to see that they prefer to chose a stock track (maybe even without a deeper search on stock sites!) instead of paying a musician to compose an original music for them, suited to their project.
Sorry but I don’t think it’s the big companies fault at all. Tim’s music is just as good if not much better than the usual stuff you hear on TV and the person who found his song and got it for $17 should probably be promoted. It’s this sites fault for not having suitable licensing that would cover major tv broadcast. Hopefully it is something in the pipeline because being the no brainer it is I’m sure they are looking into it.
I pretty sure submission volume always goes up this time of year, it’s seems to have been the pattern for last few years.
5 years worth of potential income if big seller. That’s what I told a bank that wanted to use my song, never heard back though, lol. Oh well.
If it’s not a big seller tell her $500 – $1000 and buy some new gear, better than song just sitting there, tell her if it goes big you want a small cut of every sale.
Sometimes I browse videohive items because I look for my music being used because some authors don’t contact us like FalconFX brought up. When I see one that really catches my eye whether my music is used or not I will give it a positive comment.
I don’t do it often and only if I really like it, if anything the positive comments may help make up a potential customers mind to buy or not. I would welcome as many as possible, the more you have the better it looks. I do agree with you though, a lot of people do it more for self promotion. Usually you can tell when they have commented on every item released that day.
Pretty cool site, they give you 25 minute sessions to try out all kinds of sample libraries right from your computer using your midi controller. Just read about this last night and just got done trying Symphobia 2 (Awesome).
You just have to register first, it takes 2 seconds.
I noticed same thing matt, after coming off my strongest month yet (August) and all excited for the “Busy Fall”, I sold the least amount of songs since last Feb 2013 in Sept 2013. My sales have been staying consistent and growing until Sept. It seems to be the other tracks that aren’t my more “popular” one that have slowed.
It very well might be google because when I use the audiojungle search with some very key words I still get people that use that word solely in the title coming up first on the list in most cases. Its not a very fair way to have search results. The title should be weighted but it should also have a chance to sell and if it doesn’t it should move right down the rankings and disappear.
With one big keyword I used to rank in second right after Jhunger with our high selling tracks and now there are like 20 people pushing us down because they simply named their track that keyword. Sales on a track should be weighted more after a slight period of giving items a chance to sell.
Things are looking slightly better this month on the bright side.
Congrats to Tim doing big things!
It’s not Suzuki’s fault, there is great music here to choose from so why not. The problem is Envato/audio jungle not having a proper license for TV broadcast for a much higher price. Seems like they are missing out on such a great opportunity for us and them. I’m sure big companies would love to pay more, it would probably make them feel safer about using our music and we would probably hear more on TV.
