Whoa! That’s a lot of messages since I’ve been gone! Twitter is essential, I completely agree Matt. But I do think of it as meeting someone you don’t know in a bar or cafe and sparking up a conversation – you wouldn’t immediately say: ‘hi, I’m Bob, I make music, buy my track, like me on Facebook, I’m amazing, help me get more sales, you need my music, why aren’t you looking at me? Where are you going? Buy my track! Like me!!! Nice to meet you! Buy my track?’.

I almost think its best to be yourself, show a personality and make it as natural and human-like as possible without sounding contrived. I started out blitzing twitter which is probably why it backfired a bit. I now try and tweet once in a while as is advised by Seth Godin, online marketing guru and general genius who speaks in cryptic clues that seem to be true although you’re not sure why (maybe he reads elusive horoscopes on daytime tv too?).

Our aim is to get to about 50-60 sales a month by the end of the year. Maybe it’s ambitious, but I see some people regularly make much more than that, so I’m holding on to that dream thank you very much. Hope you’re all setting goals as well – I think it’s a good motivator, it is for us.

Hey Taco, yeah my team has goals set too. I think 50-60 is very realistic and you have a great and solid portfolio so I’m sure you’ll be there way before you think! Besides the marketplace keeps expanding! When I joined (January 2012) there were (only) 1.3 million users and now there are nearly 1.7 million! It’s amazing! The marketplace is constantly growing and now really is the time to establish oneself before it all gets flooded!

We’re hoping for something similar… a few hundred dollars of earnings a month, enough to cover the food bills. I mean how great to know that your food money is coming from writing music you enjoyed writing anyway right?!

Besides the fact that just having the exposure that we otherwise wouldn’t get thanks to AudioJungle is just so worth it. I hear stories of people getting commissions from AudioJungle and am patiently waiting for the day that someone emails us asking us to do their next movie!
