I didn’t have a rich portfolio before I registered on AJ, so it took me about a month with four sales and three items.
The support site states:
“Audio Source Files, save your source file in the file format appropriate for your DAW , and ensure you include a high quality wav or mp3 file in your main .zip.”
So I guess it’s just that. As for the tips – I can’t help you, as I don’t have any items in the source files category, but the best thing you could do is to give appropriate names for every file included – no a.wav, b.wav, but drums_kick.wav and drums_snare.wav and so on.
Congrats! Hope it’s all downhill from there.
Agree with you. If you carefully read my message i suggest to LIMIT uploads and to set higher standards for submissions.
Well limiting uploads is bad. If I want to add 20 quality tracks per day, why shouldn’t I be able to? It’s ultimately better for AJ as a bigger catalog attracts more potential buyers, so limiting the upload amount would also limit the money amount for Envato. And probably – for us. Audiojungle could be friendlier to new or small authors, but not at the cost of the bigger guys. They ultimately make most money for Envato.
May be now it some how tuned for more established authors?
It’s not – I’ve tested it and it often puts guys with less sales before me, even if the search criteria should put my song somewhere in the top 3, as the name is exactly as in search terms. Yet, somehow – I’m somewhere farther on the list.
That would be a good idea, but – as always – there is a big BUT around the corner. Audiojungle wasn’t established to promote new aspiring artists, but to make money for Envato. And who makes most money? “Big” authors. Simple as that. You can’t blame them for not wanting to cut off their main dollar vein.
Seriously, don’t start it. I would beat the hell out of your scores with my other account with stunning 0 sales
That doesn’t look like it’s sorted by relevance. The first and most important criteria should be the title, then the tags, then the description and then whatever you like. Now it looks like it doesn’t even cover anything other than the first word in terms of relevance. Sent a support ticket.
My latest and greatest inspiration were some Kyuss’s stoner rock tracks. It inspired me to do something totally different, but incorporating a nice triplet-based rhythm with a treble driven rhythm guitar. That and my favorite retro synth from old C64 /Atari/NES games. I was damn tired doing two full-time jobs this week but even that didn’t stop me. It went awesome and the track is currently in review.
