1 year ago, my writing partner Will and I uploaded our first song to AudioJungle. It was called “Fresh Start.”
Fast forward to today, our 1 year anniversary, and we have:
-Generated over $40,000 in revenue (Paw Level 6) and sold 2,000+ items.
-Sold to companies like Tesla, American Airlines, Uber and Groupon.
-Are currently #230 on the AudioJungle marketplace.
We could have never predicted this.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Envato, the creative community here, and of course the customers we have connected with. Without ALL of you, this would have never happened. You have changed our lives and empowered us to continue to create the best music we can.
To celebrate, I’d like to share the #1 thing we’ve learned that has contributed to our success this year.
Create music with clear emotional triggers, and name the track in a way that speaks of the emotion.
That is a big key to repeat and happy buyers.
I know, it’s kinda obvious… but I think many of us forget or overlook this simple idea. I know I have.
I try to remember that it’s about hearing what emotion your track is expressing, and naming it that way. This way, when potential buyers come searching, your music is aligned with exactly how they are searching.
EX: Is that rock song you’re working on “Pumped up and Fun!” or “Dirty and Loud!” Highlight that emotion in the title and let your buyers know that if they’re looking for that emotion, they’ve just found it!
Anyway, thank you again, and we can’t wait to continue to contribute to this community as best we can this year.
