Tip #70: Get up and move. Tempting as it is with all this new technology, your body needs exercise, everyday. Do not spend 8-16 hours in your studio chair/bed/sofa working on your latest epic track. (We’ve all done it..at least, I have) Go take a walk, jog, (or in my case, rollerblade) get the circulation and the blood flowing, come back with renewed mind, spirit, inspiration and lay the smackdown!
Tip #71: Analyze mathematically the structure and length of music by watching commercials. trailers and every video productions. Ex: intro (10sec.) + spread (20sec.) + return (10 sec.).
Tip #72: Do at least 3 version of a track: 60 sec. – 30sec – No Drum
Tip #73: Edit your watermark to be audible but unobtrusive. Put it in time with the track, don’t let it land on musically important moments, and ride the levels to match the music. We all hope that the potential buyer can “hear through” the watermark, but that is easier said than done.
Tip #74: Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket, especially if there’s a hole at the bottom of it. Throw away old or rotten eggs. Keep throwing eggs at the wall until there’s enough there to make an omelette. Sometimes you have to just take a break and sit down or your eggs will never hatch. If somebody throws an egg at you, don’t be a chicken and go hide in your coop. If they keep throwing eggs at you… DUCK, or the yolk is on you. Sorry that last part was cheesy. But then again, you could use that for your omelette!
Tip #75: Before you upload your preview MP3, add ID3 tags to it. Often, customers will download previews and then, when they are ready to buy, forget the name of the track/composer and the filename doesn’t give the actual name of the item. If you add the tags to the file, they can use the tags to find the track. Make sure you include the title of the track, your Audiojungle username as composer, the Audiojungle category as either genre or album name. i also like to add my profile page location or my actual website URL to the Author URL tag. It only takes a few minutes but will add yet another way for a custoemr to find you.
Tip #80: Do a search on the forums before posting repeat questions for the umpteenth time (e.g. what DAW? Why $2 extra, ...)
Don’t upload it just to upload something new if you are not sure whether you are satisfied with it or not.
Guys, please try to remember to number the tips!
The 2 above were Tip #81 and Tip #82.
Please, follow the guidelines to keep everything organized. Thanks.
Tip #81 Try to do a full-fledged tracks. Develop musical idea to the end. And the good + the longer the sound of your track = more expensive it will cost
