  1. I have replied. Apologies for unwittingly breaking the rules! I wonder who might have singled out mine and MSD's posts for reporting... 🤔 🙄 ❤️

  4. https://plugindeals.net/product/exclusive-sale-black-rooster-all-bundle/ Our first sale as an official vendor! Hopefully the first of many... 🙂 Expires October 12th. Feedback on the site and product is page welcome. I already know a few ways I'd like to improve it before the next promo!
  5. @PavlovsCat I appreciate your kind words and I'm glad you like the way we run things in our communities... it's definitely had to evolve and adapt over the years as we've grown and I still feel we could do better to make valuable, friendly places to hang out. I've had run-ins with a few other affiliate guys, not including the chap from the other thread, and there are definitely a few who go about things in ways I do not agree with at all. I did actually touch on it in a blog post I wrote a while back where I came close to giving it all up but instead decided to just focus more on the things that mattered and delegate a bit more so I didn't burn myself out! On which note... I'm off for a little vacation. (Though I'll still be around, as always!) ❤️
  6. @PavlovsCat made some great points about the nature of these services and how the whole affiliate thing influences their approach. I agree and actually have a bit of a love/hate relationship with affiliate marketing. From one side, it's a great way for creators to earn a few pennies from their work, which is how I came to it after starting the home studio blog that preceded Audio Plugin Guy. From the other side, there are many out there who are only in it for the money and set up services that claim to help you find deals but almost exclusively spam you with affiliate links. Or put out glowing reviews for substandard products just to get their cut *ahem MIDI chord pack reviewers ahem*. Those guys bug me! The approach I take with Audio Plugin Guy and plugindeals.net is to put the service to our community first. So, whilst you will find affiliate links for Plugin Boutique and others amongst our deals lists, we aim to share all the deals we come across, which includes offers direct from devs and exclusives at non-affiliated resellers. The APG reviews are for products that excite myself and our writers, and therefore hopefully our readers. I also like to help highlight new indie devs. Affiliate stuff doesn't come into those decisions at all. So hopefully I come down on the right side of the line with all that. 🙂 For the record, affiliate commission is "ok" across all the stuff we've got going on but most goes to covering hosting, paying for the database and automation services that keep everything running, and paying writers and coders. I certainly couldn't make a living from it (not with a house and two kids, anyway!) and rely on my "real" job for that. ❤️
  7. @mibby spotted some incorrect pricing on Best Service. Looks like this has disconnected and will be fixed asap. I'll be setting up personal alerts to let me know if a dealer's data isn't updated for some reason so this won't go unnoticed in the future. Thanks!
  8. This was mentioned in another thread which went a bit wayward (for unrelated reasons) and was closed down so I figured I'd start a new one so I can respond to feedback and maybe get some more. So here's the news... We have just gone public with a beta of our new Plugin Reseller Price Check service on plugindeals.net. Whilst this is pretty complicated under the hood with automated daily site scraping connected to a huge database which is then sorted and updated on the site twice a day, the front end is pretty simple to use. It's basically a list of thousands of products along with their current prices at a number of top resellers. The list can be very quickly filtered by category, developer, or product name. It's still in beta as there is still some manual work to do connecting the reseller data up to the main product list and removing duplicates, among other things. But it is mostly in a good place. There are caveats, as with all any service like this, such as the fact that prices are in USD and may change when converted to your local currency. There are also differences in taxes depending on where you are. The data also takes at up to 24 hours to get up-to-date so new price changes may not appear immediately. The list is not intended to be used in isolation and works best alongside the ULTIMATE Plugin Deals List and more community based deal-finding options like our Deals and Freebies Facebook group and our newplugindeals subreddit. Myself and my little team of developers are working on ironing out the kinks and there are also some cool new features we plan to add that this system opens up to us. So keep an eye out for those. 🙂 Please check out our our Plugin Reseller Price Check service and let me know what you think! I'll respond to some of the feedback from the other thread below shortly. Thanks! ❤️
  9. Thanks for sharing our groups and lists. I hope Larry is ok. ❤️ The Plugin Reseller Price Check only went live yesterday so that got out quickly! It is intended as a complement to the ULTIMATE Plugin Deals List, which has all the deals direct from devs and some resellers from a different database. The price check is still in beta and there are some duplicate entries to clean up and one whole reseller left to connect up but all the code behind it seems solid... only took three months working with two very skilled coders to get here. Now the backbone is there we will start looking at adding more useful features to this tool. I'll do an official post when I feel we can stop calling it "beta". 🙂 PS. We also have a fairly new Plugin Deals Subreddit as a mirror of the FB group for people who don't like FB. It's pretty comprehensive. 😁
