Hi guys. My sales stopped about one month ago. No movements…

What do you think about my portfolio? I’m new here in AJ and still uploading tracks every week. But a I’m a bit down since my sales stopped.

Any advices??

Here’s my portfolio :

Thank you for your time.

I think you have very good portfolio. Just remember – some summer months may show a drop of sales due vacations and business slow down. It is common for many areas of business here and there. That’s why some big retailers introducing discount programs during summer. So you can slow your submission a little bit and wait for better month or continue uploading your usual amount of tracks per week. Also remeber this place is highly competitive and top quailty tracks usualy wins in this battle. Good luck.

1 piece of very good advice given to me when I was disappointed with the amount of sales was that it was not the quality of the portfolio – just that buyers want a particular track for their current project. Do not forget that bookmarking takes place all the time and hopefully that results in future sales. Buyers will come to your profile / portfolio. :)

I believe this is true. If you see a spike in visitors but no sales, the buyers maybe just browsing, perhaps downloading your preview file to see if it fits their project with further client approval. I know this is true with my clients. The process can take much time. Then bam, next month could result in sales. Remember, once they purchase your file, its in their “Download” tab, it’s always there if they need the same kind of track, thats how your build your AJ clients, not other authors with their general curiosity “Follows”, unless they do the purchasing themselves. I tend to purchase photos and art from the Envato community since I’m mainly a freelance graphic designer.

Plus, a video house designers can spend several months on a project, his/her next projects may not have the same feel, they go elsewhere with a more appropriate track fitting their new project theme. You hooked them once, you can do it again. Just continue to write and upload, unless you’ve been at this awhile, and building a niche portfolio of your style, sales will vary from time to time.

Which brings up another point. I don’t write a lot of corporate commercially stuff, when I do, they rarely sell very well, if at all. My niche would be more light rock. Perhaps its “corporate” rock. Regardless, they come to ROCK! There are authors that just do acoustic guitar genre. Jhunger for example (probably my favorite here). The guy is absolutely amazing sticking to what he knows best.

But yes, sales is probably slow all around in summer months. Don’t fret, you will develop your groove, figure out your style and pattern of sales as year pass. My sales months as improved greatly compared to the same month of the previous years. I can only credit that with an ever increasing portfolio. You’ve only got 10 items, “A bigger web catches more flies.”, my friend. Great portfolio by the way, looking forward to hearing more. Cheers and good luck to you.

Don’t worry. I had like 10-15 sales per month and this month I “only” got 1 sale. Its about summer. Everyone drives to holidays, etc. You have a great portfolio! :) Crian
