Dreamstime progress part 4

I wont make it to long this time. I wanted to show my progress again when I had 150 pictures online. I finally got there. I did not find the time to shoot more often because of my daytime job that also becomes a night job lately. I am posting my progress for new member that want to know what to expect from Dreamstime. This will also depend on the kind of pictures, quality etc. but I think this will give you a small idea. I try to get as many different pictures online as possible. Retro stuff and textures seem to sell good but people still do better and gave me my first level 2 picture.

Here is my progress:

Total online files: 153 (10 pending)

Selling since: july 2011

Total sales: 58

Credit sales: 23

Subscription sales: 35

Upload bonus: $30.60

Earnings from sales: $51.96

Total earnings: $82.56

Level 1 pictures: 37

Level 2 pictures: 1

It started slow but I am getting more and more sales now. This month gave me sales every day. I have 19 sales this month already and it's just the 15th so I hope it will keep up like that.

Next stop: 250 images.

@Ewapix: if you become an exclusive member you get $0.20 upload bonus per image. Its not much but if you think that some subscription sales only pay $0.23 it is a nice bonus and it made me more than $30 already. I see that you only have 24 images. Keep shooting and upload more! It will definitely bring you more sales! If my progress would be as steady as it is now I would have earned $800 with 1500 images instead of $80 in 2,5 months. And that is what I want to show with my progress blog. How many images would it need to earn good income and if it is correct that 2 times the pictures equals 2 times the income. I can tell you when I get to 300 images. :) But I hope some day I will reach that 1500 images also but for now I will go to 250 and see what that will give me an I will share it again! :) Good luck!
