The $5 test is over for me. I really go better with $39 tracks at month end and a $99 for 1Mio or $599 for a Broadcast that saves you at a beer or two
Well, That could be the way we can increase our sales.Buying each other’s tracks. At least we keep our dignity and don’t buy them ourselves. At the end of the month we are even poorer ,but proud .
Same, I’m almost at 50…last day. Oh my…
April was the most successful month in my membership here. I agree to @gballx have increased in march nearly all my prices to a standard price of $29 with some exceptions. New tracks will get always this price. And what should I say? I guess, customers looking not only for cheap prices it seems. I don’t expect a sales explosion now. I’m happy with every little sale. It’s more a thing of good feeling, if a customer likes my music and find it is worth to be used in a project. That gives my work a sense and this fact is more worth than money.
But one thing is clear to me: Decreasing prices doesn’t help at all.
@Daydreamz-Studios : I have been doing this for a long time! I prefer!
The threshold is reached every month. And my work (small, of course), is recognized!
@Daydreamz-Studios . It’s not necessary the price, but the niche repertoire. That is the only thing that keep us apart of elements and might bring us some sales. All i have been sold this month was quirky, niche tracks. And almost all my tracks have the same price.
@Soundtrickz yes, you’re right. All my sold items are far away from the uplifiting positive motivating corporate ukulele. There are dudes here, who can produce that corporate stuff thousand times better than me. But this corporate genre is totally over saturated. I don’t know, if there are any of the new tracks in this genre get sold - independent from any pricing. If I imagine to be a customer and start a search for “corporate” there are so many same sounding tracks…
The mistake, that envato does is, that they lead new authors directly to produce for this genre, because of the reported “most searched terms” - instead to lead new authors (as well as experienced authors) to generate new trends.
It’s also wasted time for the reviewers. I am sure, they know, that the 103766 track of corporate stuff will not sell. These track won’t get any attention. Sometimes I don’t understand the customers. All that corporate stuff is sounding the same. They produce image videos or somthing like that with the same sounding tracks. Where is the individuality, the special in their end products?
Have you ever read from a customer in the customers forum: “I’m so bored about the palm muted guitar corporate stuff. Can anybody please produce something different?” That would be a good starting point to discuss and generating new trends. But as long as envato’s only direction are the “most searched terms” we’ll have even more from same sounding tracks.
Make your corporate tracks a lot more expensive then…people may click on them out of curiosity (because they are a lot more expensive) Then they may convince themselves that your tune is better because it costs more. Don’t make any assumptions. I sold a saturated ukelele tune for $900 on this market last month to a post house in LA. There are thousands of Uke tunes on here that are just as good, even better than mine for $5 or $10, but they still paid the $900 for mine. Don’t over think this like everyone has been doing for 3 years now. I would set your price and stick with it. I don’t even understand why people sell their logos and 30’s and and 15’s for discounted fees. Just sell everything for the the price you expect to be paid regardless of length. I sell 15’s all the time for $60. People need 15’s for 15 second ads. Why should 15’s or 30’s cost less than 2 minute tracks? I can make a case that 15’s and 30’s should cost MORE because they most likely land in spots where there is a higher budget. In fact, I am not speculating, I simply KNOW this and know I am right because I have worked in the advertising business for 30 years. I know what these companies have on hand to spend on music and it certainly is not $5…LOL!!!
@Daydreamz-Studios .I really cannot blame Envato for that, tbh. Maybe some author are somehow missguided by ’ most searched’ . But i’d like to believe people are still able to think with their own brains. Somehow this ’ corporate’ genre is easier to write in bulk. Once you get a few tracks approved, you are able to save it as a template and just twist some things here and there. Rinse and repeat 30 more times per month .
Maybe you’re right. Anyway: I would not spent time (also not with a template) to produce a track in a genre (and in the same way as others), where new stuff will have nearly no chance to get seen.
Maybe I cannot express in the right way, what I want to say, I’m sorry.
But I try it again. What I mean is: This marketplace doesn’t need the 176455 version of corporate palm muted guitar tracks. This marketplace needs more individuality, more exclusivity. I assume, that customers are bored sometime about this kind of tracks and go to competitor marketplaces. And at this point envato has the opportunity to guide authors. But therefore they need to know the customer demands. In my opinion we producing tracks here “into the blue” and we hope, that the customers will buy one or two licenses.
I have my doubts on this, because we still get more and more of the same stuff. If this authors would think about it, they would know, that it is wasted time.
Less awful month than I expected. Wouldn’t mind a 10 Million Broadcast license landing overnight to make April the best month of the year. It would be below half than 2019’s average, but that’s a whole different story we all heard till boredom.
I did complete 1 year on AudioJungle with the amazing milestone of 3 sales.
I just can face it as a hobby…
Waiting for such license too.
Monthly Payout request rejected 3,2,1… Wellcome to life! and the big questions regarded to it
Finished the month with a grand total of 2 sales. I guess I should be happy it wasn’t a zero month. The second sale came right in the last 24 hours thanks to one of the newly uploaded tracks, so I guess uploading new stuff does help. I am grateful for this unexpected Easter gift.
Well, it didn’t happen, but hey, a STD license came in so it’s better than nothing. 21 times more than what a five bucker makes in a sale.
Not enough to withdraw funds
Yea, bro. Fivedolla crowd earn less.
A bit off topic but what is very difficult is that once again I’m stuck on a 65% approval rate. In december a couple of uploads got rejected and ever since I’m trying to crawl out of the 2 tracks limit. It’s very hard because they look at your last 20 items.
Always use protection…
Sorry, I had to.
