Unfortunately there is a huge number of Video Templates in Elements that still lacks credits to the AudioJungle author. This is breach of Envato’s policy and is of course very unfortunate for both frustrated customers and frustrated AJ authors.
So by NOT crediting the music author you are:
- Being in violation with the Envato policy.
- Forgetting that a music producer is significantly helping you sell your product.
- Frustrating customers who are interested in the music and sabotaging their workflow.
- Robbing a potential sale from your beloved AudioJungle author.
- Minimising Elements —> market traffic in general.
So what is the ideal solution? The ideal solution would be that Elements Video Templates had a direct link to the AJ item AND also a little tag if that track actually is available in Elements or not.
For some reason I do not see this happening in near future, based on increasing silent treatment from Envato last years. I am guessing there are some real challenges to the implementation of it all which should have been addressed long time ago and now it starts to get real messy.
Anyhows, we AJ authors started a topic yesterday trying figure out a way to explain customers how they can “work around” it and learn to find the missing music credits in Elements Video templates themselves, instead of going to the forum asking for help every single track that they cannot find a track. Which of course is a killer to any customers workflow. To everyone that helps customers find Music in Elements Video Templates
There have been an increasing amount of customers trying to find the music in Video Templates lately. Needless to say we all want customers to do business with us in the Envato Ecosystem, and frustrating them is a loose-loose situation for everybody in the long run. I have seen customers saying that they rather prefer another sub model competitor outside Envato because their time is precious and if they are interested in a music track, they want to find it quickly. It’s in most cases not about budget, but about convenience.
That we AJ authors now have to go to the step and create semi complicated “video guide instructions” to help out customers is frankly quite so sad. But if it can help a few customers here and there it’s worth it.
What actually would really work and help everybody, is if as many as Elements Video Template authors as possible schedule some hours to update your Video Template catalogue in Elements with music credits.
