After seeing a buyer request today to compose an entire song for $10 and send them a sample before being chosen for the honour, I have to ask are they actually expecting quality music for this price?
To compose, sound design, mix and master an entire song to a standard that doesn’t make me ashamed of myself takes at minimum 5 hours. Anyone willing to “make” you a song for $10 is sending you stock music or worse.
I see these requests constantly and being a new seller I’m willing to work cheap but I just had someone try to haggle me down from $35 for an entire song to $25.
Music brings huge value in increasing sales, viewer engagement with your videos, bringing a professional feeling to whatever you’re presenting, etc.
Value your musicians and their work!
