2011 Review: Selling Sound Effects Article Roundup


Around 1999 I unexpectantly entered the world of e-commerce. I had previously been a sound editor and assistant and occasional yet passionate field recordist for my infant sound effects company Airborne Sound.

By an odd twist of fate I began mastering sound effects for a company that sold sound fx online.

Since then I’ve learned a lot about how to sell sound effects on the Web. I found it fascinating to see how people respond to distributing or sharing sound (for sale or otherwise). It’s also satisfying to use technology to give people creative tools and for them to walk away happy.

This year I started writing about e-commerce and sound clips. I call the series ‘Selling Sound Effects.’ I covered topics like improving your sound effects library, your sound fx website, distribution and mistakes to avoid when selling sound.

Here’s a link roundup of my e-commerce Selling Sound Effects articles:
