Reasons to be an exclusive photographer

I am in microstocks photography since last summer, and when I startes I registered in all websites I found. In less than 6 months I have discovered why it’s better to be an exclusive photographer (obviously in Dreamstime). Here you have my reasons:

1.You’ll get better percentage of each download.

2.Dreamstime will give you 0.20$ for each accepted upload (I haven’t this point in any other web site)

3. As usually the criteria to accept uploading images are different in each site, you have to do just what you know/think could be accepted.

My experience says me that Dreamstime is the best microstock site, because:

1.It isn’t specially difficult to get a good acceptance ratio (of course if your images are high quality).

2.It is the site with more “traffic” (as more visits more relevance for your images)

3.The ratio of sales per image is the higher I have found.

For all of this… I am an exclusive Dreamstime photographer.

Well I'm regretting it now not being exclusive here. As I said in one of the comments, there is lots of money in DT than any other site. I have equal no of images in most of the sites but sales and income is 80 percent more in DT.
I advice newbies to be exclusive here and make more money and save lots of time submitting in every site.

Congratulations! I think you did the right thing!
I had others reason when I had decided that!
1 It's easy to catch any fraud if you are an exclusive somewhere;
2 I don't have time to pay attention on other Microstocks;
3 The best community ever!

Good luck and Cheers ;)

Thanks for posting these reasons, I was sure there are benefits to being exclusive but did realize how appealing they are until your post.

I have 39 to go, slowly I'm getting there... My AR has gone down to below 30% but I'm still taking the rejections constructively. Someday I'll be there.

I'm very happy here!

Feedback on rejections can be thought of as upsetting or better as a tutorial in raising your game ! DT is good in this respect [ to date ! ]. David.
