Selling Sound Effects

 

It was only a matter of time until it would come to this. As I built my own library from nothing to several gigabytes it was time for something new. To start selling some of my recorded sound effects.

I thought about different ways to approach this and to begin with I wanted to be able to sell them at my own site. Then I realised that I haven’t got a clue how to set something like that up. That’s why I’m going sell my audio as stock. I’m well aware of the fact that stock sites have a history of bad reputation and quality. But times change and stock sites do too. Naturally there’s still some junk out there, but I was surprised to hear lots of high quality stuff.

I started silently a few weeks ago to see how it works and to learn how to set it up. Today I have 9 individual sound effects for sale + one sound pack of 14 variations of two similar themes. I will update this page with deatailed information about each sound effect. I’m also thinking about setting up a mailinglist for new sound effects.

To start with I tried out different sites. I chose to sell exclusively at Audiojungle and other sfx non-exclusively on Audiomicro and Pond5. In the end I dropped Pond5 and Audiomicro. Not because they’re bad services, but because I feel more at home at Audiojungle. The Envato Marketplace also gives me the opportunity to add other assets like photos at Photodune for instance.

Below you’ll find the sound effects available at the moment. This is just a start though, I’m aiming to add more in the future.

Enjoy!

    Congrats on getting your sfx for sale out in the world. Definitely respect your decision to sell your sfx on Audiojungle where you’re comfortable, but in order to maximize your profits you need to find as many distribution points on the web as possible. Spreading far and wide is THE name of the game. It could be the difference between a real business and a hobby. good luck with it

      Hey Adam!

      Thanks for your comment. SFXSource looks really interesting. Expect an e-mail from me in the future :)

      Since I’ve only just started I thought I’d focus on one site to begin with. You know how long it takes to edit sounds, add the keywords, upload the content and so on. On top of that I got the teaching at the university and all the projects that needs custom audio.

      All in due time ^^
