105 sales in 60 days.

Today marks the end of my second month of joining and start uploading images on Dreamstime.

There are a couple of important milestones I have achieved in 60 days:

1) 366 images uploaded and approved for sale;

2) 105 images sold;

3) earning balance exceeded $100;

4) one image reached level 2;

5) wrote my first blog.

Actually I was writing this blog to celebrate the 100th sales, then I noticed another 5 images just sold :-)

This is the lucky 100th images sold:

My best sales day is 8/17/11, and I sold 18 images in one day :-)

This is the first time I put my feet in Microstock business. As a newbie I feel I am having a decent start. Thanks DT for providing a very good platform for me to make $$$ out of my beloved images.

By the way, I used to have a big doubt about making $$$ from Microstock photography. I am a traveling photographer, shoot mainly landscape, nature and wildlife. I don't shoot "happy businessman", "pretty girl smiling" or "office/teamwork" types of images, which I heard are the most popular in Microstock demand. While that might still be true, I am glad to find out that my images also have decent sales.

Happy uploading and have sales for everyone!

Jerryway, thank you for your answer to my post, you are very kind and encouraging! I will certainly continue building my portfolio - as soon as the children are both back in school I should have more time to work :-) Also, it is really good to know that not only "happy business people" are selling, because it really is not my kind of photography!

Another sale just came in - this adds up to 109 sales in 60 days, and 14 sales for today :-)

Watching sales growing on DT is like rolling a snowball down the hill. It was a very tiny snowball in the very beginning, but now getting bigger and bigger as the time goes by.

The first 60 days are not over yet, and I just had another 3 sales, after I wrote this blog. That adds up to 108 sales in 60 days - if there's no more sale coming before the end of the day :-)

I modified the title of my post in this thread, somehow I cannot modify the blog already published. At least this post explains the reason.

Thank you for writing, this is very inspirational for me because I have been here for about two months too but have only one sale so far - I am very jealous :-) but then, you have an excellent portfolio and obviously have been working hard. I must confess that having two small children running around during summer holiday can somehow restrict a full time mum`s ability to work on her portfolio :-) Ewapix

Ewapix, I just visited your portfolio and really liked your images there. Very simple and clean, great potential for sale. The problem with your PF is the size, it is too small. 19 images are not going to generate lots of sale. I'd encourage you to keep uploading, and forget about the sales in a moment - they will come.

I see quite a few folks here joined DT for over a year, with a dozen images in their PF, and yet complaining about the abysmal sales figure. They did not realize that in the Microstock business, size of your PF is one of the the key factors, if they want to have lots of sale. That translates to perseverance and hard work in the long run.

Congrat's and it shows that great images sell even if they are not supposed to be the most popular types amongst stock. My 101 sales record is 30 days and I'm sure you'll beat that in no time if you keep uploading quality stuff. All the best :-)
