Firstly, THANK YOU guys. I did not expect to receive this many responses and to have to many tracks to check out. I just now had time this morning to sit down and listen to them all. What a great selection! I am continually blown away by all of the quality work on AJ and the rest of the marketplace.
“You Got Me!” By Stockwaves got me! But I also have 3 others in case the producers want options, and I bookmarked a few of the tracks suggested here that weren’t going to work for this project but that I wanted to keep in mind for other projects.Thanks again! Happy Friday
Thanks for letting us “get you”
Feel free to get in touch if you ever need edits and/or remixes. That goes for lyrics/vocals as well.
Thanks..Yes ,thats the greatest feel and you get alot of motivation to go on
That last track is your best so far. It’s tight, generic enough to be usable for many different projects, and it has a fresh, interesting corporate / pop / EDM sound to it. Keep it up and you’ll be unstoppable
If you can time it, having tracks approved in the beginning of the week (mon-tue) is the best, since weekends have slow sales. Also, hold your Christmas tracks until December
Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t think it’s such a big deal if you upload everything at once. Sure, you get more exposure the first few days but that doesn’t matter much as long as you don’t compete with your own tracks (for example within the same genre or keyword). Really, I have many tracks that didn’t start to sell until months after upload. It’s all about the right buyer suddenly finding your stuff. I wouldn’t want to miss a day with all your tracks online if I were you. And then there’s external marketing to offset the AJ physics. Also, the “front page exposure” is a myth. A track is only on the front page for a few hours. What really matters is how high it is ranked in the search – yes, also a function of the upload date, but it has nothing to do with the front page. Who looks for music on the front page anyway?
would be better for overall sales numbers but mostly not hurt a song’s chances of charting.
Basically what you’re saying is you want everybody to have greater sales numbers
No, I get your point, there’s always a trade-off to creating a pack. You lose some sales here, gain some sales there. But then again, that’s what packs are for – leaving you to decide which tracks to sell at a discount. Now, if authors only could opt in their tracks for shopping cart multipack discounts (like 3-for-the-price-of-2)... then we wouldn’t need to upload packs at all
The problem is… there’s no metadata in the pack for the included items. There’s just the links in the item description, and since those can be changed without review, well… then I’m sure some people would like to change those once in a while on their best selling packs to add sales boost to their new uploads.
But yeah, everything about packs is leaving a lot to be desired.
And as i mentioned here… the whole pack infrastructure feels a bit ad hoc to me.
Any easy way to have a look at the profile page views over time would be nice.
The radio stations do a pretty good job smashing everything up against the roof if it isn’t already. Even receivers and amps often come with compression/eq presets bound to destroy the finer points of a mix/mastering job. By now I think most people confronted with a “naturally sounding” recording will just wonder if the volume was turned down.
