Last month we introduced new submission limits for music items on AudioJungle. We’ve been closely monitoring the results and, as many Authors have noticed, the review queue times have continued to increase.
While many Authors have suggested that the limit of 30 items is too high, we haven’t been seeing Authors contributing more content than before - with 90% of Authors submitting 7 items or less a month.
What we’ve actually seen is a steady increase in new Authors coming on board and submitting items. This means that reducing the 30 item limit won’t have the desired effect.
We’ve also seen a 25% increase in Authors with an approval ratios of >50% submitting content, with the majority of that coming from Authors with 90%+ approval ratio! These Authors are not individually submitting more than before though. We’ve also seen a 40% reduction in content from Authors with an approval ratio <50%. We think this is a great result but we know we need to do more.
With all this great new content, it’s even more important that we help Authors get that content through review and selling as quickly as possible to their customers!
With the above in mind, we’re going to be increasing the submission limit approval ratio to 70% starting midnight tonight AEDT, 1st December.
|Approval Ratio||Submission Limit|
|Authors with <70%||2 items p/m|
|Authors with >=70%||30 items p/m|
Based on the first month’s data, we’re expecting this change to be the best next step in reducing the review queue wait times.
As before, you can still check your limit by visiting the upload section in your account and we’ll continue to monitor the queues and update you with any substantial future changes.
