I actually think the top authour lists work in AJ’s favour – it provides goals for new authours to reach so acts an incentive for authours to stay with AJ so they can try and reach the same level. My feeling is it is actually part of the business model, not a risk they’re taking (although I see your point).

We’re trying to take the perspective of Scott in his thread about how to publicise yourself – it’s a marathon, not a run, so the only way to improve sales is to improve your customer relationships and improve your products so that they’re so irresistible that everyone wants them.

In the words of one of the most impressive and promising authours in this marketplace (sweetwateraudio in my opinion): ” Only release your best material…if you wouldn’t buy it, don’t upload it!”

I couldn’t agree more. I firmly believe that uploading quantity over quality, although may have short term gains for said authors, has negative long term implications, namely 1) having a poor overall portfolio, and 2) makes searching for the gems more and more difficult as there is far too much noise to sift through (no pun intended).
