Hooray for first blog posts!--but let's keep it simple:
My question to people who put their works in the audio portal and get scouted / placed on the front page...how do review scores and comments work for you all? I ask because I've been looking at my own analytics and it's been...bothersome, to say the least. What seems to do 'well' in the eyes of the user-base (for me, at least) is techno, EDM, and anything sort of hip-hop that I do. Anything beyond those genres get middling results at best, and I am unsure if it's just "I'm not good enough" or "they're just bad." And most reviews are silent, and come with the caveat of no comments, so I don't know whether or not those two points are even valid or true.
I just noticed this especially recently with my AIM 2022 song... I'm past bewildered at the flip-floppy results between songs I post, and more just intrigued at this stage...
So I open the floor now to guys here in the audio portal: is it just me or is this just how NG do? AND how do you guys deal with it and get more exposure? I mostly post on NG to get feedback and improve my craft. I don't care for or am bothered about clout chasing, and I am aware of the phenomenon called "review bombing" (some people spoke to me in private about that last year during NGADM and the NGUAC.) I mean, getting followers I guess comes with time, patience and just throwing your work out there (and reviewing others' art and songs), but yeah.
Realistically, I'm just curious at this stage and wanted to have a discussion, haha (and probably just waft in the copium of this process and how to deal with it). ♡ Have a great day to those who read this uh...semi-rant...? XD And a hello to those who reply!
It's my first post here, so uh...be gentle. XP
