My 300th Sale :) & Keeping Track
I haven't checked my stats in a while and went on today and saw that I just made my 300th sale. Right on the nose. It was this photo which just made Level 4:
This summer, I caught up on a project I started ages ago, making contact sheets from my various shoots and keeping track of which images sell best - and where different images sell best.
This image, and a group of similar backgrounds I shot with my lensbaby when I first got it, have been big sellers for me here on Dreamstime and elsewhere. Though hitting Level 4 is much easier than it used to be, I was glad to see it. Here are two others from that shoot:
The one that's the same photo without the hand-drawn heart was one of my first Level 5's. It's had twice as many views as the one with the heart and it's sold more than 3.5 times as often. More useful for designers I guess.
Other recent sales include another heart/Valentine themed photo (shows holiday pix sell any time of year):
I really like that such diverse photos do well here. Some other recent sales include this editorial images
