Hey creative nation! how are you all? I hope you are doing awesome.

Recently I started a thread here asking about voice over services. I have 2 suggestions for this great AJ community, coming from a buyer:

1. Authors should list additional services to customers on their profile pages. Not sure if this is allow due to the nature of being exclusive author, I think Scott or somebody else can elaborate more on this.

Why? You can sell music here and increasing your profit for the exposure to potential customers needing voice overs, music production for tv, custom projects, even full vocal songs. It was when Tim Morris uploaded music specifically for tv with vocals that it came my thought “hey, I’m often looking for voice overs or custom music, I should ask AJ authors”

So probably more customers are looking for something similar and you are losing some extra money. I posted a thread here and got a lot of emails with awesome authors doing such things. It works for me because I build a network of contacts that can use for future projects.

2. This suggestion is prob for the devs, but being able to download a watermark preview of a file to give it a try on my actual project would be awesome. If you are a little experience in the internet like me, a user can download the preview and voila! but I’m sure most customers are not (no offense). Previews are a great way also to stimulate sales in an indirect way.

Hope this helps!

(I’m posting this as a comment, so Mods can flag or remove this as it may suggest things to people reading the forums)

Last, this is a warning. I will post a similar thread in Videohive. I encountered this problem 3 days ago when I was working on a VH project and was waiting for the music file (from the author) and he was taking so long.

I won’t go in details (as people may start doing the same) but let’s say a videohive author wants to use an AJ file for his file. I’ve found that sometimes they will purchase the song from here and use it in their previews without the watermark.

Using this method, any experience internet user can download the song without purchasing the file. I’m not sure if this is written on the VH wiki (what files to use and not), but maybe Scottwills can give this a check with Mark from VH.

Again, sorry if it was better to email this instead (which I’m doing right now), but guys be careful. You don’t want to lose money, I think..lol

Have a good day!

Yeah Rodrigo, thanks for that. I know that, that’s what I do but think about those users who dont know. I didnt write it, but having a bottom with the “download a preview” will be a great thing.

Thanks man, I’ll put you on my network list. Have an awesome day.

no problem, Rodrigo, did you get my email about the spanish thread I’ve started a while ago?

sorry guys, I didnt elaborate a little more about that warning. If you download a preview with the original file (without the watermark) from VH, the dev’s did an amazing job since the file can be render or export to an audio file. I was trying to do that the other day as this VH author was taking so long with the audio file and I was on a rush. This is not the main issue.

The issue comes with VH authors posting HD preview on Youtube or Vimeo. You can picture the issue now.
