While i do find it interesting to be able to see who bought my stuff and where they are from (actually a lot more international sales outside of the US than I expected) it’s getting so convoluted. Where before I could quickly glance at my monthly statements to get an idea of what I’ve been selling and how much I was making. Also this new method has messed up Envastats and my monthly estimates etc…I assume this is all tax related but I wonder if there is a different more straight forward way of showing us our sales but providing a more detailed downloadable invoice for more tax purposes.
+1Yes, I also noticed that Envastats began to show the wrong amount of earnings. This is confusing.
Damn it, I though I was doing really rather well this month:) and it was all just a messed up envastats!!!
Finally the curse is gone;]]
zero sales on wednesday? Thats weird!!!
8 days is gonna land me on the weekend with new tracks….bollocks!!!!!!
Im sorry if it was already discussed on the forums but can we or do we have to at some point register those tracks from itunes with PRO and such? And generally should they be a little different in arrangement than those we sell here?
It seems like most of the tracks im selling on itunes and bandcamp are to people who found them on Youtube where i put them in videos to advertise. Meaning they already know the track exists but dont know where to buy it outside of AudioJungle. i dont know if many people are searching thru itunes and bandcamp for music to buy especially if its called Dubstep 1,etc. Try to make the names a bit more exciting.
My advice is to change the names to something more unique and original when selling music via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, etc (ie. for personal listening enjoyment) and market the music as if it were a listening album rather than related to production music. It’s a very different crowd of listeners we’re dealing with and therefore the marketing of that music should aim towards that audience. Also, if you’re using ‘royalty free’ style naming conventions on iTunes, etc, some people may pick up on this and start purchasing those tracks to use on their videos, instead of purchasing a proper RF license.
Thank you guys!
I guess it will have to be the long shot then…cause I still got tons of artwork to make for albums…if only I could find someone to do it for me..
So here is a question that pops up when one wants to start selling his music on places like iTunes, Bandcamp etc. What about those generic titles we tend to give our products in order to have them perform better on AJ, shall we think of changing them and give our tracks proper names before uploading to bandcamp? Am I worrying too much or names like “Dubstep 2” or “Dubstep 3” are fine, and people normally would not mind?
