Hi!



In another thread I saw somebody state the sales in her first months here at DT. As a newbie, I found this very interesting. Maybe all of us newbies here could take courage and a bit of guidance out of the dl-numbers of the first months of more experienced photographers here?



As my first month here is not yet over, I can only give you my 3-weeks number; it is 2 downloads ;o)



with best regards,

Martine

Well i'm a newbie as well and after my first 2 months i only have 1 sale and under 25 views in total of all my images. but i think when i capture the right thing it will sell..



what i have been asking is do i need a model release if the subject is a superstar that is in the spotlight at a public function. i.e. John Legend or something like that. can you help me with that?

I wouldn't suggest to count sales till you are 6 months old. Only count your uploads till then. Its basically because your upload-download ratio will vary hugely after 6-8 months :)

Hi there, I've been a member to Dreamstime since January. My first month I had 1 sale, second month 0 sales, but from then on, each month my sales have increased steadily. I've been uploading as much as I can over the months and now have 283 images online. I think the key is to just keep at it, keep uploading and keep your camera with you wherever you go, because you never know what you will see that would make a good stock photo.

Good luck, and have fun!

First month in microstock, I had 3 DL's at DT. The second month was better with 13, but I kinda fluctuated around that number for a while thereafter. Now 14 months in microstock, I get about 65-70 DL's per month at DT. I expect this to be appreciably more next month.



Concentrate on a steady flow of new images, while keeping your acceptance rate reasonable. Unless you are really gifted, don't expect sales to take off in your first half year.
