Hi everyone, I’m finishing a couple of tracks that I like nowadays and I’m not sure what to do.. Since a lot of people says that July and August are not good months for sales, I’m not sure what is better: uploading these tracks as I have finished them or maybe waiting for September? What are your thoughts? Are you waiting for September for uploading your best (hopefully) hits? Thank you for your advices! Paolo

Hello! I think that everyone decides for himself: What month is good or not, but …. for me this month – not bad)))

Depends on the genre really, if it’s one of the super popular genres like cinematic/action/adventure or corporate/motivational, then perhaps not as the “front page” on those genres changes so quickly. Compound that with what seems to be less sales for all and less customers your piece may very well disappear into the black hole of unheard music. If it’s in a genre where there really aren’t very many tracks at all then go for it, your piece will be in front for a longer time with those.

Of course marketing, a good customer base and good web design all factor into it. Established authors here seem to have respectable sales regardless of month. If you’re really proud of these pieces than promote them on your homepage so people hear them no matter what!

There is no bad genre to upload to.

The front page exposure is absolutely meaningless. Most of the people who check out your tracks on the front page are not buyers, but other composers checking out your work.

I think when people say front page exposure they mean first page of category search results when a buyer searches by category. By default when someone searches by category newest items show first unless that search is than changed by user to show different results like sales or something.

This is when most people experience the most sales, so it is actually meaningful. I have seen some hits become hits by the first week exposure. Then it usually gets help by top seller list and maybe becoming featured item the following week and gets picked up by a few videohive projects.

My sales grow every month purely because of the promotion off site I do so I don’t rely on “front page exposure”. So I would say if you plan on doing off site promotion than upload your tracks now, if your tracks are not on the site there is no chance of selling, you can always write more music later as well.

If your music is the best in the category it will sell, plenty of buyers around any month.

Thanks for the info, guys. We’re not doing promotion outside AJ at the moment, since it’s not really that clear for us how to do that in a good way, so it’s not my case. Regarding the front page, I think it’s a good thing and not meaningless at all. An example is that every featured item instantly becomes a classic. :-) Anyway, do you think that for people like us, who don’t promote outside AJ, is better to wait for better times or it’s not important at all?

+1, homepage exposure is much less important than most authors think.

Im not waiting for September with new uploads. This July was my second best month in the 13 months that Im here.

Front page exposure means either Top Sellers page or New Items page. Both equate to more sales for those tracks.

While its true that last July and August was weak for me, granted that it was my first summer season on AudioJungle. However, July of this year has been a great month us. Hope August is also as good one. Good luck and Cheers!
