Hey Everyone! New composer


I just started this journey and my goal is to start making a living within a half year composing music for audio jungle. I am very confident in the quality of my music and compositional/production skills, but don’t know much about the business side of things yet.

Looking forward to being a part of this community and learn from all of you, as well as contribute anyway I can. If I can help you with anything let me know.

I am wondering how those of you who are making a living do it…

  • selling just on audio jungle or you have more income streams?
  • how are you promoting yourself? I have a hunch that relying on audio jungle searches is not enough for most…no?
  • you make just tracks, or also sound effects?
  • should I sell individual tracks or focus on making packs?
  • how should i arrange my music to make it easy for video editors to cut to it?
  • what are the most determining factors if someone finds my tracks useful in a production? how do i optimize for this?
  • how necessary is it to focus on certain styles that sell?

I want to focus on making the music that I am best at and enjoy the most, which is epic cinematic music.

So here I am, sort of a newbie in all of this, but determined to reach my goals.

Will be very grateful for any advice you guys can give me. Thank you.

Hi and welcome! I highly recommend setting realistic goals because the above won’t happen simply because thousands of others are trying to achieve the same so that, as a result, this market is already completely saturated and most tracks gain 0 visibility. That said, if you are really good, you definitely can make a little income here, and maybe even more than that with hard work and a lot of luck. Try shooting for

a) good quality
b) nice, relevant portfolio
c) consistent uploading of tracks

and take it from there. But whatever you do, don’t quit your job that makes you a living :wink:
