Why do audiojungle items have ratings?


#1

I’ve always wondered this. I mean, it’s that big of a deal, (nobody has ever rated my tracks) but I’ve always thought it was odd that clients could rate audiojungle tracks.

I mean, I can understand the usefulness of ratings for things like wordpress themes since there’s a lot that the buyer may not see from the store page, but for audiojungle items - it’s all literally right there in front of you.

If I was a buyer that decided to rate an audiojungle item with less than 5 starts, it’s like I’m rating my song choosing ability poorly! If it wasn’t 5 stars, why did you buy it in the first place!?

Anyways, those are my thoughts. Always thought it was a little odd.

good point actually. the only thing i could see useful is if a buyer had issues clearing the song with adrev or something like that after purchase. Bu you’re right, the music is the music.


#3

I have wondered this too, but I suppose if a buyer is really pleased with how the track has worked with their video, then they might want to come back and show their appreciation.

@DougFury and @JonnyBoyleMusic
Those are good points! I wonder if a composer rating would be more useful than a track rating.


#5

Was thinking the same thing today. I got a rating on my last sale and it was 4 stars. Why did they buy the track if they didn’t think it was great for their project, just okay? :thinking:

4/5 is more than average, so it is good :wink:


#7

Exactly! If anything it’s like they’re rating themselves as not very good at picking 5 star tracks!
By the way I love your new jazz track! I’d rate 5 stars :slight_smile:


#8

I know, but why buy a 4 star track when you can get a 5 star?


#9

Thank you :slight_smile:


#10

@Hyperprod why not? If i like the music, i don’t need comments and ratings to buy it :wink:
Btw, one videohive template was in popular category with 2.5* rating

I meant, why would you buy a track that you was going to rate 4 stars when you can choose between hundreds of thousands of tracks and find a track you thought deserved 5 star?
For me it doesn’t matter much, I just think its strange. :smiley:

It sounds very much like a focus group idea that sounded good at the time.


#13

Yeah, either that or the decided to universally come out with ratings for all Envato sites regardless if it made sense for AudioJungle.


#14

I think the ratings had a greater value a year or 2 back… Plus the search has a rating value too in it, in order to help the clients orientate themselves in that category too!

I also bought a lot of times , and to buy a movie at the maximum extended license , but maybe people just do not work perplexed ?

You’re so right! I’m agreed:grinning:.
