It consisted of many highs from the start: One year ago, our first song (and top seller) got approved here on AudioJungle, which helped us to achieve the #1 spot on “Top New Authors” for November 2012. On Christmas day of last year, our best selling Christmas song was the featured file after an uproar about another file chosen to be featured that was a close direct copy of a popular song on here (anyone remember this?? :) ) After Christmas day, our top seller was then featured through the rest of January.

Then some lows: Half way through this year, there was quite a lull in sales. It’s unexplainable. This site can be a mystery and those trying to figure it out and find themselves confused and frustrated at times are not alone. Hang in there.

We enjoy being a part of this community and hope for continued growth. Of course everyone is hoping for the best growth and to reach the top. If we’ve learned anything, it’s that time is your best friend. Be patient. The cream rises to the top. We’re on our way now and drawing ever closer to that coveted silver paw. ;) Thank you for helping us hang in there.

Do good work.

Weird…..the first result for “Action Trailer” is a Dubstep track. lol
I noticed that too! That particular track shows up on page 1 for almost all ‘epic’ related searches. He must be doing something good :)

It’s because the song is brand new. It looks like the new algorithm gives priority to new items.

Fun song to listen to!

The problem, I’d say, isn’t in the production as it is in the composition. 1)The lead synth at the beginning and end doesn’t contain much structure and seems a little all over the place (some notes not matching the key the song is in). Not to mention, that particular synth is your least interesting synth (much more interesting-sounding ones come later!) and so leading with it from the start, isn’t the best idea. And 2) AudioJungle is looking for background music. This is a song that is so cool that it’s asking the listener for it to be their main focus. People using AudioJungle are buying music to subtly enhance their videos, not take it over.

Just some helpful (I hope) thoughts. Fun song though! :bigsmile: I wish I was good at writing this kind of stuff.

Good luck.

The problem is sale reversals. They screw up some sale counts.

Yep, you guys are doing incredible! Wonderful work. You’re well on your way to be one of the top authors across the marketplace. :bigsmile: Good luck (I’ve been watching you bloom from a distance this last month. Hard to miss.)

heh… The problem we figured out was that we DID click all earnings… but for whatever reason the first time it did not go through. Then it reset to the amount that we had in our account, when we thought it stayed on all earnings. But now it’s fixed. Thanks for the help!

This thread can be locked down now. :) Thanks.

We just now requested a withdrawal of all earnings for the end of the month… However, we hit “submit request” and it was immediately accepted and the only remaining balance is the amount of money we had left from our deposits ($1.00).

Has this happened to anyone else – your withdrawal being accepted before the end of the month?

And… if we make any more sales in the next day and a half (before the month is up), do we have to request another withdrawal? Never seen this happen.

That’s interesting. I’m pretty sure every bundle that I’ve seen has been hosted on ThemeForest. This is good. GraphicRiver could use some love. ThemeForest has had TONS of love (which I get… it’s Envato’s main moneymaker…so, of course).

It’ll be interesting to see what’s in the bundle!

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Envato! :) I remember when I was 7… Life was much easier then.
