Submission Tip: Item Title Naming Convention (AudioJungle)

Posted: 04 Oct 2011 09:20 PM PDT

Howdy talented authors! In an ongoing quest for transparency, we bring you another submission tip. These are regular juicy tidbits about our review process, and address issues that can trip up authors. This tip is aimed at AudioJungle authors, but may be relevant to authors in our other marketplaces.

Today we have a brief look at the item title naming convention.

Make sure your titles follow the AudioJungle titling protocol. This is found in the AudioJungle Marketplace Wiki. In summary, the Name field should always be relevant, concise, and professional looking. Here are some examples:

Good:

  • "This is the File Name" – Capitalize the first letter in each word. Small words like "of" and "an" may be lowercase.
  • "Template with CMS" – Do capitalize acronyms and abbreviations like XML and PSD.
  • "WordPress Template" – Do follow the industry standard even if it doesn't follow the normal capitalization rules. For example, use jQuery and WordPress instead of Jquery and WordPress.

Bad:

  • "THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE" – Do not use all CAPS.
  • "this is also not acceptable" – Do not use all lowercase.
  • "Beautiful File" or "The Best Template" – Do not use subjective words like brilliant, amazing, or best. These words describe your opinion rather than what the file actually is.
  • "User9909 – File Name" – Do not append your username or any other less-relevant information to the file name.
  • "Apple-like Design" – Do not describe what your item is similar to in its title, describe what it actually is.
