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…

Hm… Just deleted five my tracks so far but – can I delete a track which is part of the pack?

Deleted track will be listed in pack, but cannot be accessed or purchased anymore.

Anyone knows if this is OK by AJ rules please?

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.
