+11,000 views for an image in a single day

Here's a short but true story of how online socializing can work to your advantage financially speaking. Fame is only a few clicks away.

A regular Dreamstime image got to be virally famous, when filmmaker, actor and recently author, Albert Brooks tweeted yesterday:

Here it is baby. Delete this DM the second you get it. I don't want anyone else to know http://ow.ly/5dlxj.

It's perhaps a simple joke but one that got retweeted by hundreds of people (Albert currently has more than 100,000 followers) and was read by thousand others. Many followers of Albert's followers then read the joke and some retweeted it again. All the joke readers subsequently accessed our site. Hey, even Steve Martin was here yesterday!

While there wasn't much to control or monitor in all this traffic, nor expect this very image to be downloaded, all these people now know about Dreamstime. It shows just how powerful this service is and how unexpected good things happen while you're out there, socializing online, for business or pleasure.

And this is just one out of the million already happening or about to happen similar stories. Tomorrow, it can be your image. Let's continue this story so go retweet about it and don't forget to connect your Dreamstime account to Twitter and Facebook in our Social Networking page.

good stuff Achilles. let's see the downloads increase on my portfolio, especially. Just kidding,(only partly)..
seriously, it's win-win-win for us all (DT, photographer, buyer). It's true too,isn't it? all it takes is one big break .. in the right place and the right time. Cheers and congrats to DT
