Would you prefer to hear merely final master?
Or would you prefer to compare the submitted mix to the final master?

I ask this as I recently put a track onto my website I was given permission to use as an example of my mastering results.
I put both the final mix (specifically included "Before:" in the label) and the final master (specifically included "After:" in the label) ... & yet the mix has almost twice the amount of plays as the master!

I'm going to be adding a few more masters to the website work folio within the next few days & wondered if it's worth just uploading masters alone (also remove the current mix that's up).

Some more info: my website clearly states that I am a "Audio Mastering Engineer" & "Fine-Audio Editing Specialist" (as I also offer post-production, audio restoration & forensic audio services).

Any thoughts/opinions appreciated. Thank you!

put the after before the before! haha
It might be nice to showcase comparisons between shorter segments of audio, like just the chorus (before and after). it might make what you do a bit more obvious to hear. Remember most clients won't have great monitoring at home so it'll be hard and sometimes impossible to hear the minute details that your mastering will impart

I was about to say the same thing, put the after before the before.... people just don't want to hear it twice.

Maybe place both into a single track to do direct comparisons on each song section/half section
