Hey Richspeller, I tried the twitter thing and I also noticed every time I tweeted a promo with a referral link to my song it gave me like 3 click throughs instantly. They were not coming from people instantly checking out my stuff it was something that twitter does. I kept trying it and every time I would tweet it was about 3 click throughs. You might think the tweet thing gets real results because you see click throughs but in fact the bulk of the click throughs you see are just some automated process.

I would try other forms of promotion as well as twitter if that is in fact your only source of referral click throughs. I saw you have a twitter account so I figured that is where you are promoting. I think the twitter thing works best when you have gained lots of “fans” and buyers, and they follow you. I don’t know if many people are searching out there background music by searching twitter.

If you mean 35 referrals by just click throughs thats not going to do it. To give you a idea I had almost 600 clickthroughs last month and only got 7 deposits.

It’s true, this kind of posts appear at least 2 or 3 times per month. I’ve been here for a few months, so i’m not an expert, but i understood that it just happens… Last month i had a really bad start (and now i’m experiencing a drop of sales again) but then i had a great month ending. So i think that the explanation is that… there’s no explanation. It’s just the way it goes here. Unless you have a large and great portfolio you will always go through ups and downs. There are really lots of factors involved in sales tendency so i guess it’s impossible to fully understand what happens. Just keep working and hope for the best! :)

Stock bussiness is a rollercoaster so If you are on the bottom it could be only better. One day I have 1 sale, another 40 sales, you must to get used with it and do not have too high expectations :)

Yup, 35 will certainly not do it… I have a website (2 in fact, one relatively new), YouTube account, I have now begun uploading to Vimeo too. I will also (whenever I find the time), begin a non exclusive account, as well as getting a WordPress or similar thing, behance, about.me and more. I am very serious but it is difficult if a basic thing such as sales (even 2 per week would be good) are not henceforth (that’s a good word that!). I remember reading something T McMorris said about trying out so many different before succeeding, this sounds just like me.

The only thing I am not part of, which might be good is Facebook. The only problem here is that I f*ing hate “FB” :-)

I shall solider on and I shall get there!

+1 for this. I had only 3 sales last week (which is way under my avarage), but this week sales are picking up again. I had 11 sales today, including 2 extended licenses. It really is like a rollorcoaster, and lowering expectations does help!
