Pretty soon people will come on here and say “its not about front page”, “its promotion” etc etc etc.For new artist with zero connections, or steady repeat customers because they have been around since 2009, this is the most important time. The only time my stuff sells steady is when I have a brand new song, either the new item sells or it brings people into my portfolio to purchase older track.

The good news is as long as you keep a steady stream of “GREAT” music coming people will eventually find that older song you worked hard on. Things are moving fast right now because of review queue being so backed up, but I have no doubt it will return to normal soon and your items wont move to back pages so fast. Plus they did just post those Audiojungle promo loop videos to use, try posting one of your cinematic or classical items to youtube or vimeo. Leave a link to your audiojungle portfolio and see if it works.

Yeah someone who has been here for a long time said in another thread this is the first time that this has happened so I don’t think this will a permanent thing. A reviewer also came on another thread and said this issue is not being ignored so have faith that this wont be for much longer.

I have had a few of my keywords come off before, I always just figured that reviewers didn’t think they belonged there so they removed them.

Thanks for the heads up ADG3studios, I like most others arent trying to put the pressure on you guys. A lot of us just thought the possible issue of too many people uploading maybe a bit to much and quality of it should be addressed, which might be best for everyone. We all know you guys are doing the best you can and work very hard, thanks.

Yeah this could be the case, people are creating their own nightmare maybe and causing mass hysteria about some problem of the great invasion of new authors that doesn’t exist. Hopefully that is the case and it is just a slight hook up on back end.. Tim I thought you might have VIP reviewing, no waiting..

Tim, you have mastered this site, and all things promotional, of course you don’t need front page exposure.

I don’t mean the home page thing, I mean when someone searches a category you are right there in the first page or two and if you have even one sale on it or more it would make someone listen to it and want it more because someone else already bought it, human nature. Of course this strategy is best for new artist that don’t have much promotion going on.

I don’t have a problem with longer wait times either, my problem is the reason for longer wait times. It because of a overflow of uploads and most lacking quality, if they were taking longer to really cut out things that just aren’t making the cut I could care less if it took a month.

Brownhousemedia, I think the point that your totally missing is stomp out the fire fast and the save the house (A.J.). There is something happening and people are seeing a large wave of new users and totally reckless uploading free for all and want it stopped. Brownhouse your new and great corporate songs sell good at first but then slow down as they get pushed back to page 4 by second or third day because of the amount of uploads in that category. Imagine if they could stay on page one for a few more days it could sell a whole lot more.

Lets not let this site get to a 30 day wait.

If the wait can get up to 2 weeks it can get to 3 weeks or more as well if not taken care of.

This is something i’m personally experiencing. I’m quite new to the site so i don’t know how things worked some time ago, but now 80% of my few sales occured in the first 24 hours. Then the file is pushed back and got very few views. I’m not complaining about this because i know how much self promotion is important, but just wanted to know if this is normal or it’s something that’s happening just lately.

(sorry if my english is not perfect) :)

It’s not just you, I hear this from newer authors all the time. But like Borwnhouse said if you just rely on front page exposure it will not go very far. Over time if you keep uploading good stuff that can sell a lot of things will naturally happen like videohive collabs, exposure from sales(top list), repeat customers. I also think there is a lot that can happen through forced promotion, I just don’t have much time right now for that, every little free second I have goes to writing and producing something to upload.

Actually Brownhouse out of all due respect I do have an idea. I respect your work and I have always checked when you put new stuff out to listen to it. I have seen how most of your new corporate releases have sold, and its similar to mine as far as your most recent corporate releases go. Bunch of sales first few days (from first, second page exposure) then slows. All of this info is not private, anyone can see your portfolio. So to say new release exposure is nothing is simply not true, ask any new author. See skanoir’s post above your last. Although I agree more has to be done to keep sales alive.

Sure you have been here since 2009 so you have had top song list exposure, built up connections on social media, collaborations with other envato authors to promote and have repeat customers. As I get more expierenced I will figure this all out but in my little time here after a couple of days my sales die off until I upload something else. So for now the best I can do is keep steady uploads(a few quality ones every month) and learn more about promotion game.

I’m not trying to keep this going with you because I actually think you are a great composer and know what sells. You are obviously not part of the problem here at Audiojungle. But to come here and say there is not an issue with a business market becoming over saturated and nothing should be done to try and control it because “other sites have 30 day waiting list and we are spoiled” is not something I would agree with.
