Thank you, Envato!
I woke up to a purchase of a Music Broadcast & Film license (thank you, Japan) to finally push me over the Elite milestone amount!
Though I had hit the milestone (if I were to add my other account…shhh…) a while ago, it is nice to finally have a badge to prove it!
Truly, this gig is a marathon, not a sprint. I am honored to be among the ranks of those who went before and devoted the time to make this marketplace what it is. Without them making hits that people search for and end up finding here, as well as driving traffic and getting those referrals, this would be a much less-used site.
And on that note, driving traffic here IS an important key to the successful future of AudioJungle. Be creative. Ask around. Use the referral program. There are people that are doing amazing and cool, new things. Driving internet traffic is an art, but it can be done if learned. Think outside the box. If you haven’t emailed back and forth with more successful authors than you, do it! It’s a good place to start. Let’s work together and bring in more buyers! Let’s see this site climb the ranks and become the standard.
Finally, let’s commit that we (me included), instead of griping about changes, choose to contribute ideas. Change is inevitable. Contribution is a choice. We are all better when you choose to jump in and join in constructive conversation.
Thanks! I’m glad to be here.
p.s. If I knew Elite authors could live-stream into @collis’ office 24/7, I would have tried harder sooner…
