Subscriptions? Yes, thank you!

Sometimes I happen to read posts on the Message Boards talking about subscriptions and the disappointment of seeing your own image sold at only 0.30$ or 0.36$. I always consider every sale with satisfaction, like a personal success – my picture was chosen among 3.000.000 of images online! From this point of view it doesn’t matter if it’s a “normal” sale or a subscription.

I sold many images via subscription and I want to point out the usefulness of these sales with an example.

This illustration is online from 23rd of November 2007. It became level 2 the 14th of April 2008 thanks to subscriptions too. From then I sold it 7 times:

16th of April 1.20$

17th of April 1.20$

23rd of April 3.00$

25th of April 1.80$

29th of April 1.80$

6th of May 0.36$

20th of May 1.80$

So... The “moral” ;-) is: subscriptions are useful also to reach a higher image level, and consequently more sales and more earnings...

Bye, Rob.

Subscriptions are definitely a good thing. I know there's about a 3 fold difference between a $1 sale and a $0.30 sale, but at these amounts it doesn't really matter. In fact, if you allow subscriptions you make create more chance for sales, thus make more money -> isn't that what a business is about?

Thanks Wayne, Gokhan and Woo Bing for your comments.
I always consider subscription sales like a bonus, so if I sell a level 5 (eps) for 0.42, well... I'm 0.42$ richer. ;-)

If your image is assignment file which is the maximum level 5. Then, what is your point of view if that image has many subscriptions sales?

Now that is a very common sense, optimistic attitude and you are to be
commended for pointing it out to those who are less favorable to
subscriptions - every sale is one more opportunity for success!
