I want to promote Mexikus. I’m sure many people have heard his killer “Transformation Rise Impact” sound since it has been a top seller for a while now, but take a listen through some of his other material. Great talent and a passion for quality.
Wonderful ideas from everyone. I have a website and blog up and running, and I’ve seen an increase in traffic as a result of my efforts. I can’t say what has been converted to sales or not as a result of my work through. I have no referrals in AJ yet, but my promotion multifaceted, and thus, not specifically geared towards directing people into my Envato portfolio.
AlumoAudio makes a great point:
“Also legitimate followers soon tire of constant “check out my great AudioJungle item…blah blah blah”, and just result in an unfollow, so be aware of that and consider tweeting interesting and engaging content if you do focus on Twitter.”
I do my best to produce legitimate and interesting content on my blog, and avoid blasting spam at the people with whom I’ve earned their readership. Improving sales is a hopeful side product, but my goal is to use my brain and provide worthwhile content. I feel like that has to pay off in the end.
I put the links to my AJ related blog posts in my profile:
I wonder what the record is for largest number of replies.
Thank you for the comments everyone. It seems like people have enjoyed reading through the post. I’m thrilled that others have found this information to be useful, thus, I feel my effort has been worthwhile.
I’m still logging sales as part of an ongoing process. At this point, the results of the experiment have not changed, but I’ll probably post “Chapter 2” of the process when I hit 2 years of selling. The data should be interesting to compare.
BTW, for future posts on this thread we may want to refrain from mentioning other libraries by name. This is an interesting topic and I’d like to hear others’ opinions without it getting locked
This is a valid point. I’m attempting to bend the rules here a bit by posting from my own real-estate. Hopefully the objective nature of the article (and the fact the AJ fairs very well) will be enough to keep it open to the public. Regardless, if there is something you’d like to say that you feel might be in question on this forum, you can feel free to use my comments section below the article itself. I’ll be monitoring both for a while. I appreciate all the enthusiasm around this project!
Regarding the topic of exclusivity: I’ve been working on an experiment for the last year and I wanted to take this opportunity to share it with everyone.
I started selling sound effects a little over a year ago, but when I started, I could not come to a conclusive decision about whether or not it would be more beneficial to sell exclusively through AudioJungle or non-exclusively through a variety of companies. After scouring the web looking for answers, I ultimately decided to conduct an experiment myself to answer this question.
I’ve logged one year’s worth of information for all of my sales across multiple stock libraries and calculated total income vs. the theoretical income of an exclusive AJ account, then calculated trends to help make predictions for future income earned.
My formal blog post about the experiment and findings comes along with a series of charts and an excel workbook to follow along if you are inclined to do so. It can be found at http://www.frontiersoundfx.com/exclusive-vs-non-exclusive-finally-answered/
I hope you have as much fun reading the article as I’ve had putting it together. I look forward to hearing what others have to say.
Nice job! Hope to meet you there some day!
I have not been able to find an answer to this as of yet, so perhaps someone knows the answer and would be kind enough to share.
If you switch from a non-exclusive account to an exclusive account on AJ, does you pay rate get adjusted automatically to the appropriate tier or do you start as if you were at $0 in sales again?
For example, if i sold $7000 as a non-exclusive, when I make the switch, will my pay rate be 51% or the starting 50%
