How long before you got your first sale and with how many tracks?

    Just signed up here - what's the deal with sales? Do you need hundreds of tracks uploaded to get started, or have you found things pick up with just a few?

    Obviously it depends on the quality of the track and demand, but it would be useful to know some of your experiences so as to have realistic expectations.

    There's a lot of competition of course, but in the few weeks I've been here I've sold 6 items. Not much but at least there's hope. I notice it's pretty hard to get a lot of views, but the purchase/view relationship seems to be pretty good.

    So much will depend on the library of music that you have and that you continue to build. More quality content = better. If you are able to promote the music & effects you sell here, even better. I find that the more regularly I upload new content, the more frequent my views, cart adds and sales do.

    My experiences on Pond5 have been great! I'm a member for less than a year now. Super fast inspetion times, lots of great upload features and options, and the lack of higher royalties from being exclusive on other sites is more than made up for in the increased sales here.

    I don't remember how long it took for me to get my first sale, but I've had about 21 sales in around a year, from only having 11 clips total uploaded. The weird thing is all my sales except one have come from one track. I can't figure out why one track has gotten so much attention and the others haven't. Maybe it's in the right category or something. Anyway, I intend to upload more music over time. I enjoy composing, and having a place to sell is just a bonus.
