Hello everyone! Just wanted to share that, after one year and a half of AJ, we’ve just deleted a couple of tracks that never sold once, and probably we will do the same with a couple of others. It’s a little bit sad feeling… :-) And you? What do you normally do? Do you give your files a sort of time limit before deleting them or you just keep them all? PS I hope our new upcoming song after 4 months will have more luck :-)

I’ve been here for about 6 months, and really making an effort the past 3 months. I have already pulled down 3 tracks… I give them a 4-6 months, then take them down… There is no use cluttering up the marketplace with tracks that aren’t getting views or sales… One of them was one of my favorite tracks… I uploaded it elsewhere for a request in their library…

I deleted a track three weeks ago, after nearly two years with no sales, and a week later I got an email of someone wanting to buy that track, having found the preview of it on SoundCloud :-)

Generally, I agree. But this one was one put up in the very beginning just to build up a portfolio quickly, and I didn’t like the mix. I remixed it for the person who was interested in it.

I constantly delete stuff. Always there is a boost on sales after I delete… strange… there is almost never a boost of sales after I upload. Maybe my best sale would be when I will delete all of my tracks…?

I will definitely delete tracks with no sales after 6 months.

In my opinion, AudioJungle should do this. I imagine buyers have a hard time finding usable tracks between so much material that’s little demand for.

Or, AJ could dramatically improve its search and rating system. Generally, Envato sites a excellent examples of good user experience, but their search funcionalities aren’t very advanced.

Kinda torn on this myself. One of the first tracks I upped (that admittedly doesnt sound as good as the stuff ive done later to me) that i’ve thought about removing with no sales got a sale the other day. You just never know.
