Time to celebrate!!

Yay!! After 4 years of membership I have just hit sales of $50, with a total of 57 sales. The image which helped me to achieve my benchmark was this one of the roof in Kings Cross station in London

My most poplular image so far with six sales has been this one of the London Eye, taken on Saint Patrick's day, hence it being lit up in green.

The image with the most views of 833 is this one (no sales though).

Just goes to show that you don't have to have a lot of views on an image to sell it.

Next benchmark is $100. Let's hope it doesn't take me another 4 years to achieve ;-)

well that explains of course why you don't go exclusive on DT :) ---- you might somehow tell me what ******* stands for - perhaps you are giving me the constructive suggestions :)) then

Thank you Martingraf for your constructive suggestions. I notice that you have 4 times more images on line than I do, which could go a long way to making my sales much lower than yours. I hear what you say about the exclusivity but if I were to do that I wouldn't then be able to sell on ******** and I can make more money with one sale there than I have in a year of sales on DT. I do have my images with several stock sites and sell 2 - 3 images overall most days so I can't complain.
I suppose I'm lucky because anything I earn through my images just goes towards new equipment (and placates my husband when he has to wait while I try to capture the moment just right).
I can definitely see an improvement with my images as time goes by and that seems to be reflected in my sales. I've sold more this year than any other so I guess I must be doing something right ;-)

congratulations for achieving your benchmark - was just thinking why you might not have sold more pics in 4 years - perhaps you should consider to get exclusive? that would help to increase the sales - quicker and double the average earnings
