It seems like you’re trying to be condescending, my friend! That’s ok! It’s been almost a year, trust me i know how to work with tags and descriptions! I am checking if anybody has the same problem or if the staff has an answer to my question! Every time i upload an item i follow up on it, like 99 percent of the authors here! I know when it’s approved and i know how many people have viewed and bought it pretty much within an hour, cause i dedicate my time to this site! That’s what the analytics is for! The front page hasn’t moved an inch in the last 8 hours on my system…. ;)

Not at all, I just tried to make clear to you that front page exposure (as in where the track appears once approved), doesn’t matter. Do you think buyers just randomly click there when they’re all looking for a specific sound or mood? Nope. You may know how to “work with” them but do you understand their importance compared to this front page nonsense?

I’d spend less time watching the front page and more time writing and promoting your music :)

Very foolish to deny the importance of finding the track on the main page. A lot of people rely on the main page.
Personally, I have checked this experience and I will say this: sales much more, if you regularly download the tracks, the more likely to be on the main page. After the track disappears from view – the chances of a sale fall catastrophically. I have long been familiar with the search system and the systems of tags. However, the priority is finding on the main page. And it’s a fact that I personally see constantly.
And very sad, if I spend a lot of time and mental energy to write good music… and then this music is forgotten and is not for sale.

I pitty the fool who places such hope in the new uploads front page section ;)

Please tell me what buyer just clicks one of the many tracks on the front page? Because I can’t imagine a situation in which they would do that. They come here with specific needs so they search, or if they’re lazy they look at the popular or featured items. “The priority is finding on the main page” is a ridiculous and naive idea, in my opinion.

I’m gonna leave this discussion now instead of repeating myself over and over.

Guys, thanx for the replies! I appreciate it! I am talking about an one uploaded item only, i know about the multiple items thing! @SoundFix: Everybody has their own opinions on the front page exposure! Let me have mine in peace! And just because i am putting a little more faith in it , why would you think that i am not promoting my stuff? I have 6 albums of music released all over the world, worked with great companies, why would you think that i didn’t compile at least 30 tags configurations, which i even alter more when i upload a new track, to even fit the audio better! Why do you have to say things before you check the facts! Did you browse my portfolio? Did you check my tag description on every song… I just did my research on the front page, because my upload pattern was not the same as usual so i expressed a bit of concern! Why the need to make something CLEAR to me?

Well there’s no talking to you is there? You’re clearly just pissed off and taking my words the worst way you possibly could. Good luck with that attitude matey ;)

How could you possibly know it didn’t appear on the front page? Did you watch the home page up until and after your item was approved?

I wouldn’t worry about front page exposure like that anyway, from my experience, it’s not important. What’s more important writing a good description, using decent tags and most importantly, producing awesome and useful music.

I hope that puts your mind at ease a bit? :)

Recently I made a song of one my client, for his video commercial.This morning he sent me message that Youtube ask him for for approval that he can use music included in video. So, Im not sure how’s that approval/permission have to be. I suggest that I can write to him some simple email with my permission for using music.But he said that such a Email is not valid for youtube.

Do you had some similar experience and do you maybe have some simple form or template of such a document, which I can provide?

Thanks in advance

Milos

Show them the contract for the job or if there wasn’t one, get one written up and send over :) I’m not sure how else you could prove it to them if an email isn’t sufficient.

Ha, it´s funny to watch. I would like to know how the reaction of the community would have been if we are 98% women on AJ and not vice versa.
Exactly. I was thinking of using pictures of pretty Russian models myself on my own profile and come up with a faux name in an attempt to bolster sales, but looks like someone got there before me! ;)
Exactly! +1

hmmm

A heroic cinematic piece (1:12): http://audiojungle.net/item/the-hero-returns-/2868466

A very atmospheric cinematic track, with lots of breaks and cool transitions (1:06): http://audiojungle.net/item/mechanical-dream/3469026

An intense cinematic piece, with a few different length versions included: http://audiojungle.net/item/the-apocalypse-is-coming/4784518

I’d also love to see this indie pop track put to good use, it’s longer than a minute but it could easily be edited down with a fade out: http://audiojungle.net/item/sailing-to-jupiter/5408160

I hope you find what you’re looking for :)

Watched the trailers for films 1 & 3, they look seriously entertaining and interesting. Congrats Jamie! I will definitely be tracking them down. Are they on any sort of video on demand sites at all to rent?

Hey,

Got a couple of suggestions here.

Quite quirky, a little bit Danny Elfman: http://audiojungle.net/item/trick-or-treat-halloween-theme/2995234

Pretty intense and dramatic: http://audiojungle.net/item/the-apocalypse-is-coming/4784518

A couple of drum and bass loopable Halloween tunes if you want something a bit different: http://audiojungle.net/item/halloween-loop-mix-1/3147573 & http://audiojungle.net/item/halloween-loop-mix-2/3147608

Good luck :D
