N/A sales & collections

Following a thread by Dan1, I had an interesting discussion with Mani33 on the correlation between N/A sales and collections.

Here are some statistics that may interest you. About 33% of my sales show as N/A sales.

This means that the buyer did not access my image through a specific keyword but found it through another way. This could be by browsing through a collection or directly looking at my portfolio; accessing my photo previously saved in his/her light box; seeing my photo on a promotion banner (such as latest uploads) or on a partner site; etc. etc.

50% of my images sold with the mysterious N/A label belong to one or more collections. I do not have free images yet, so my buyers could not have been tempted to browse through my portfolio this way.

My statistics are not significant enough to draw any conclusions of course, but they certainly show that we have to take advantage of all means at our disposal to promote our images, including the collections.

The photos shown on this blog were all2 N/A sale. Feel free to add your own N/A sales photos and stats below.

Among my favourite collections are Love That Expression by Raycan, Trees by Gina Rothfels and Over The Rainbow by Annalia.

Thanks Maen, you're the best! :-) I wish I could see that brochure (that's my daughter, Emily, on the picture).
I hope you find some of your images soon - they say it's like finding a needle in a haystack, but sometimes one gets lucky!

Indeed better than nothing! I found none still!
By the way I used your photo 10842428 for last Carnival party in a school, it was among many more decorating the brochure ;)

I only found one image in use so far, but one is better than none!
