In each of the last five months I have had personal sales records going from month to month. This month, I hit my all time sales record in like 10 days but that was completely due to the featured file on the homepage. Since about the 15th of june I have definitely seen a slow down in sales most likely due to both the beginning of Summer and the current bundle. While this is a huge month for me sales wise if I take away the sales from my featured files I definitely would have less sales that I did in May or April so I’d have to say I do see how June sales would be down for most authors.
I had a pack approved last week in just over 24 hours
Well there really isn’t a secret to getting in. Basically you can only be part of one once and in this last one a lot of entries were nominated by other audiojunglers and then others were chosen directly by envato staff.
While it’s very cool for all who are part of a bundle and I definitely wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to be in one, It does certainly seem to effect the majority of the rest of us during the time it is going on.
where is this chart from?
The chart is from a chrome app I installed called “envastats” It gives you a bit of a more of a detailed look at your sales. It’s pretty cool but as you can see from the chart my sales were rolling and then got knocked to the ground as of yesterday. I’m hoping I can end June strong since I had such a great solid first half of it but I fear the bundle will make the second half much slower.
So during the last corporate bundle I saw a trend with my sales heading south but I thought perhaps it was just coincidence. The new bundle has been on for two days and I immediately saw a hit in sales as you can see from my sales chart below. It was way more clear cut this time too because I was having a banner sales month (much do to the home page item feature). So my thinking is that these bundles divert a good deal of attention away from the normal avenues a customer might take in searching for music that it makes a significant impact. Perhaps Elite Authors don’t feel it as much but I have to say this stark reversal in my sales trend for this month lines exactly up with the beginning of the bundle. Is this anyone else’s experience?
Every month since december I have increased my revenue on AJ then two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to get a featured file on the homepage and I surpassed my high monthly revenue in 10 days! I’m blessed to have gotten that feature and I really hope it keeps up long after I’m off the homepage.
Best to you Michalski and Petrenj on your featured tracks!
I have now had a track on the “top sellers” list for two weeks now and it’s completely due to having it as a featured track of the week. From what I have seen having a featured track of the week has the potential to boost one’s sales way more than being the featured author. A lot of that having to do with the fact that it stays on the front of the homepage for a month and is right in the center as opposed to the featured author which is at the bottom and only up for a week. However, it seems neither is a guarantee to skyrocketing sales as I’ve seen some tracks go up for their month with hardly a bite. I feel I’ve just been fortunate enough to get a track featured that has so far caught on with buyers.
I have previously had a number of logo tracks on the top logo and idents top sellers list but those don’t seem to maintain themselves like the music “top sellers” do. It seems that if you get on that list you stay on that list for quite sometime. I guess I will be able to tell better though once I’m no longer on the homepage in a couple weeks.
Thanks I probably should have done a search first. Great resource, reading through it now…
So I am just curious from those who have both exclusive and non exclusive accounts on audiojungle as well as those who only have non exclusive accounts, how do your two accounts fair on audiojungle? Do exclusive do any better on here? How does your non exclusive music do on other sites? Do you get the majority of your sales from AJ?
It seems that I’ve heard people say before that they sell a lot more here than they do at other places but I guess it would all have to balance out the benefits of having your music here as well as multiple other sites with a lower royalty or take the higher royalty and just sell here. You’d obviously have to make up for the lower royalty with a lot more sales on all combined RF sites you upload to. This is not to mention the fact that your royalty increases here over sales/time.
I’ve actually increased my sales significantly here over the last 6 months with a significant increase in sales in each month of this year. Particularly this month which has had a huge increase for me with the featured file on the homepage. That being said I’m pretty settled keeping my RF stuff here on audiojungle but I’m just curious to here from others what their experiences are.
