I would say if you’re planning to upload a good amount of sound fx, then yes, do it. But if you only upload a few and decide you don’t want to do sound fx anymore, then I would stick with the one account. (so basically ask yourself how serious you are about it)
It’s good to separate these audio types, but only if you have large amount of SFX or music. With small sfx only portfolio you can’t earn enough to make monthly withdraw. But in large sfx portfolio you may drown your music which will be hard to notice by clients. The more sfx I add the less music I sell. Probably no one knows that I have many music tracks too
I have thought about this too, but I think I will focus on music only for now. It seems like you need 1000+ SFX if it’s really going to be worth it?
Here’s how I see it:
Too many SFX (like fxprosound said) can really clutter up your profile and customers can’t find your music.
It could be good to have a clear brand as people will associate your name and icon with a certain type of files.
On the other hand, if you sell a lot, the SFX will help bring your AJ profile higher up in the ranks, and maybe even up into the top author’s list. Also, the process of getting new paws and a higher percentage might be faster.
Thank you for your input…I might actually reconsider building my secondary profile…and what AllanGrey has done with the “public collections” makes much sense…
Allan! is there a tutorial I could follow somewhere to setup similar thing just like you? How do you go about making the “public collection” section?
Ok, I found it…timmcmorris here explains how to setup collections in a profile.. http://audiojungle.net/forums/thread/my-collections-on-profile-page-how-to-make-it-look-cool-/46340?page=1#429450
