pinkzebra, you have a big experience on the marketplace. Do you want to say that in my case (once I am a new author here) the only chance for my track to become a good seller is the first several days on the market? Is it may be the end for that track now?

You are still getting good views on that track and it has a chance to sell for sure. I’m not sure what you mean by “a good seller”. Having an AJ hit with one of your first two releases is a pretty tall order. My point was that you have 2 tracks in your portfolio and you haven’t developed an audience base yet. It’s not realistic to look at your analytics over the first 5 days and expect that the page views should have remained near the release day peak.

Hey there, AudioTrend. Your graph looks very normal to me (with the exception of the increase on days 4 and 5). This is pretty much mechanically how a site like this works. As you build your audience, you will retain more page views after the first few days, but there will always be a dramatic decrease in views after day one of your release.

Every track behaves a little differently, but after about a week or two you will begin to see a pattern of what you can expect in terms of views-per-day for a given track. Of course, there is volatility in markets like this and views could vary quite a bit from month to month.

I agree that advertisers looking to broadcast commercials on TV or radio for an audience of up to 1 million should pay more than $18.

I wonder what the other popular uses are for broadcast up to 1 million? Do smaller market local news channels license from AJ for segments throughout their shows? $18 might be right for that usage. Do local news magazine TV shows use AJ music for their montages, segments, and transitions? Maybe $18 is okay for that in a small market. What about other small market locally-produced TV and radio shows with an audience under 1 million? Perhaps buyers needing this type of usage could not afford a more expensive tier since they need a lot of music in their shows.

Maybe the $18 tier should allow broadcast usage up to an audience of 1 million but exclude advertisement/commercial use? For that a buyer would need at least the next tier up.

I don’t know. Are there many buyers on AJ needing to broadcast under 1 million who looking for music for non-advertising/commercial use?

I agree that higher rates for both broadcast licenses would be more appropriate. Companies interested in licenses for national ad campaigns and major motion pictures have large budgets that can handle a higher licensing fee.

I also think that the buyers who purchase the $18 license for their YouTube videos will get a better sense of the quality of the music and the value they are getting for their money when they see that the large broadcast license is more like $750.

This is looking great! I’m so glad that AJ is moving forward and evolving into a better and better marketplace. Count me in with the others as waiting eagerly for PRO integration in the future.

Looking at the prices, I wonder if the time-length price determination is now going away. Will all of the music tracks on AJ follow this same price structure regardless of track length? Or will the price tiers proportionally decrease depending on track length?

Sorry if this is explained somewhere and I just didn’t see it.

Thanks for all your efforts. The future is looking bright! :)

Unfortunately the new badges are so “loud”, it’s the first thing you look at, and if converting sales is the ultimate goal, badges should be the last thing a customer thinks about, not the first.

Agree with this. I appreciate the effort it took to redesign the badges and I like the effort to keep moving the site in a forward progression. However, the badges now dominate the view.

Go to the Top Authors page and the badges steal your attention. They by far outweigh the visual impact of the author avatars, which is exactly the opposite of how they should behave. They should be supportive nuggets of information, not the main show.
