Adammonroe is accurate, as far as I am able to tell. After a few weeks, my pieces get significantly less views. After about a week and a half, my sales decrease for each track, and if the pattern continues, that means it’s done being sold.

I’m sort of questioning whether or not it’s worth it to spend hours and hours writing and recording a piece, uploading it, then have it sell 0-2 times before sinking into oblivion.

If establishing a name for yourself is possible on this site alone, and I can manage to bring in return customers, then it definitely will be worth it.

But this is all a sort of experiment for me. I’m young, and have the time to do it right now. But this would not be a good full time job for me so far. Or even a part time job… Lol. But I will be setting aside some money for advertising in the future, and I have plenty of time to gauge how things work here, so who knows what will happen?

It took about an hour for me to get the first sale, although that particular tune hasn’t sold since…

I think for newer guys like us with smaller portfolios we have to just try and establish a decent-sized portfolio, then we can worry about marketing our stuff. It’s very slow-going for me, as I can churn out maybe one good quality track a week – anything too hastily thrown together tends to get rejected. But hey, maybe in a year I’ll have 52 high quality-tracks.

well, after just 12 days I already made 7 sales, including 1 extended license sale. I uploaded my whole portfolio on the first three days of august. I just wish that the sales will go like this! :P I have other music to upload but I feel it could be better to wait for september and upload just a couple of songs a week, just to be more on the top page. For now I’m more than happy, even if I still wonder how people can find my music! :)

... and I hope to be features some day! :)

Registered in July 2012. Uploaded a couple of tracks and had 2 sales soon after that (2 or 3 days) and no any more sale since then.. I suppose newcomers have very low chances to sell many items because the customers search from top 50 or even 20 authors..
