As with Soundcloud l feel AudioJungle could benefit from a discovery algorithm, where the listener is taken on a journey (one track ends, a new one plays, plus you can see which tracks you’ve listened to in that session, maybe even have the playlist emailed to you, even though you’re not signed in)
It could be a truly random journey, or a cookied-up bespoke curated journey based on metrics and stuff. Personally l rather like the idea of a truly random journey, but then again, l’m not after a specific sound for a specific project, l’m just loafing for now.
Song Prices [Revisited]:
I made a thread about song prices that got locked because admin thought l was saying AJ should assign fixed prices and this violates antitrust.
Let me clarify:
- I was not laughing at someone for pricing a track at $10 million - in fact there are songs worth upward of that.
- I was pointing out how variable prices could be, that a person may get 8 sales for a track that was maybe $20, then reprice that track at $10million (which in itself is confusing as it looks like the person made 8 sales at that price - maybe have in the sales stats the different price points & the sales per price point, for that one item?).
- Following on from that, l feel it would prevent the predictable lemmings’ rush off a cliff (= impossibly low prices, for fear of losing out on a sale), if authors decided on a price from the start, and that price were set in stone. I’m not saying AJ should set the price in stone, but the author. If the author wants to reprice, then the author could submit a written request which will of course be approved if it’s like, one change per week or something. I think it would make prices less liquid, because liquid = all trickles away to nothing, out of fear and doubt. If prices were less mutable, authors would perhaps appreciate their work more and ask themselves what it’s really worth and get the price right first time? I don’t know, l haven’t submitted anything yet.
