For those of you who have a decent number of referrals I have a question. How are you getting good results with them? I have most of my AJ stuff on soundcloud and have started uploading a few tracks to youtube but I only have a few clickthroughs and almost no views on youtube. So what’s the secret for places you guys are getting referrals from and how to increase youtube views. Any help would be much appreciated!

The same here: few plays on soundcloud and few views on youtube. Maybe it’s just a matter of tagging and waiting :)

I’ve found I’ve had a ramp up in YouTube subscribers (and subsequent views across the account) since I started posting weekly videos a few weeks back. As with most social networking, consistency is vital. Personally, I’m much more likely to follow someone if I see they’re regularly active on said social network.

Regarding referrals, posting referral links on Youtube, Soundcloud, Facebook, etc. help, but I’ve never found referrals to be very effective or reliable.

Thank you Illuminations for asking something I’ve been wondering a lot about lately! I was just about to post the same thing. I see people here that have 50-100+ referrals, and wonder how they get so many. I also wonder about how many of those referrals result in any revenue.

Anytime somebody has a badge with referrals those are actual sales off the referrals and not just clickthroughs. So there are people out there who do manage to have some successful referrals and not just clickthroughs with no sales.

Good job getting one in your first month. Do you know what source the referral came from?

I have no definate clue really, though I suspect from someone random on SoundCloud. It’s amazing really, for other than uploading my few sounds to SoundCloud and perhaps sharing it with Facebook-friends, I have done about nothing yet to promote my new tracks. For such things I like to wait to have a little AudioJungle-portfolio first. I guess it all comes down to randomness.
