I just looked at your portfolio - only three images. Upload more and more variety! The more you have online the better chances that someone will see one and that will fit their needs.

My sales started off slow too, when I was new and didn't have many images up. Maybe one sell a month or so. Now I have a ton more images up and get a lot more sells.

There are over 19 millions images on DT, so your 3 images are hard to be found.

Hej Marcus

As have already been said, for a buyer to find your 3 images in an ocean of 19 millions is like finding a needle in a haystack.
Just keep uploading your photographs, sales will come slowly.
Lycka till !

As others have said, upload more. With a family, FT job, etc. I am guilty of not uploading enough either.

If you look at your profile page on the right you will see your stats:

Uploaded files:5
Total sales: 0
Portfolio exposure: 0.01%
Database exposure: 0%

Your portfolio exposure is you number of files vs the 19 million on line. So odds are slim and none that your photos get noticed.

If you are not doing it, start using the social media (Social Hub) portion of the site as well. When you upload a photo to the site and its excepted, hop over to Social Hub and have it post those new files to Facebook and Twitter. You just never know who you are connected with on those mediums that need stock photos.

Good luck!

Sorry for the confusion, FT (full-time) job. I work a lot of hours, so it effects my ability to shoot as much as I would like.

Ok, I know, I feel the same way :)
