Views and Sales


posted on 16th of may, 2011

I notice that the number of views is not correlated with the sales for most of photos. More interesting, the number of views might give you some indication that the subject or concept has potentials for sales if it's high, though the photo itself might have some technical issues or the quality is lower, and might need to retake in different compositions or setting.

What's your opinion?

I agree with what Bradcalkins said below.
If it is used in a blog then it may be clicked on many times.
If the picture is small and not viewable/readable in thumbnail size then people are bound to enlarge and see.

I think certain photos lend themselves to a closer examination, and hence higher views. In your posted example I can't read the bus in the preview, so I might take a closer look even if I have no use for it. I find for most of my images that the views to sales ratio is around 15-20... Lots of things can skew the view count - like using it in a blog, posting in a message board, being on your first page of your profile, etc.

Its possible, or I think it all depends on how useful that particular photograph might be for your client. It might be a pretty photo, and generate high views, but if there's no market for that particular photo it will be a dead stick.
