Are you taking advantage of all analytic tools what Dreamstime offers?
Today I rediscovered a tool which existence I had forgot. On uploads area
there's a little link Download excel archive
. You can find it on statistics page
as well. That Excel archive contains all your uploaded files and shows totals about downloads, views and revenue per image.
It's a really great research tool. You can analyze which topics sell, which don't. Which images have not viewed, which might need new keywords.
I learned, that I have about 500 images on my portfolio, which have never sold, a quarter of them have viewed less than 30 times. Half of them are quite new, but others definitely need new keywords.
I discovered, that among my 20 bestselling images there are images, what have been viewed about 200 times have brought the same revenue than images with 27000 views. Top 10 bestsellers (images with highest RPI - revenue per image) the RPD (revenue per download) is $2.35, top 100 has $1.66. Total average is $0.97.
Assignment files have very high RPD, but I don't have many of them, so it's not very reliable conclusion.
Top 100 downloaded images have been online average 2.7 years.
It's a really great analytic tool. Thanks, DT!
