I ask this because in the last 16 days I had only one download....Maybe there's something wrong with my portfolio....Maybe it's just a bad period foar sales...I just want to know how many contributors on the site with at least 350 images in portfolio pass through same circumstances with me...:)

The "dark strip" happens to everyone, I guess. In April I have a 5-days period without any sales. That's just statistics. Do not care. Sales will come soon.

It's just luck of the draw, or rather what people need. I have gone many days without a sale, but it's not the end of the world. My advice to you is to keep uploading. Look at what photos are needed and what keep practising your photo skills.
Above all though, don't worry.

Believe me, many of us have such slow periods...and many times. I remember 11 days without sales. You know, there is the 3 months view in the statistics page. It's there because stock is not a business that you can have daily reports. Today might be "zero" sales, but tomorrow you can have 2 TIFF sales in a row. After my first year, I realised that stock is a long run. All you have to do is being active on forums and blogs, uploading as high quality and quantity as you can :)

The download rate is very variable for me. Anyway in this period frequently I had two (sometime three) images sold in the same day, and then five (or six) days without selling anything.
To retrieve periods with no downloads for 15 days I have to move in the past october-november 2012.
But another very variable rate for me is the mountly revenue. Some months I had a lot of subscription sales, and some other less sales but with a very high revenue, and this could also make a difference. I think is not possible to have a reasonable statistic during a too short period. One year period is the minimum time to make reasonable evaluation.

For me a bad day is a day with less than 30 usd in revenue :) Overall of course.

Sadly DT is not anymore in top 3 although I started here as a novice. I climbed my AR from 30% to 55% lately, but still they refuse here files just for fun. On other agencies I have 100% AR :) It seems that DT school thought me well and I want to thank to the DT staff for that!

An outstanding day is when you receive a message stating that one of your files was selected to be sold in a mass selling bundle. You cannot imagine how much money you make out of such deals.

Also a good day is when you keep seeing that your files are featured on the first page of the site at the latest uploads, best selling page, best selling vector page. It's like surfing and catching the wave!

A pleasing experience is when you upload a vector and in 10 minutes is online and in the next 30 minutes you already have the first sale.

Also a pleasing experience is when you sell the entire 30-40 files in a series to the same buyer... and receive a message stating that he wants more.

Again, a pleasant experience is when you receive an email stating that you are accepted to an exclusive invitation based agency that just launched.

The microstock industry is wonderful and have clear rules that everyone respects with some minor exceptions. But again, we are here to sell through these agencies and we must comply with their rules, so no complaining from me at all.

Just wising good sales to you all! And again, if you make it to DT you will excel every elsewhere!

Looking at Bogdan's experiences, I never have a pleasing experience and almost all of my days are bad :))

Every month is different. It doesn't seem predictable or consistent at all. Don't worry.
