4000 sales and 2 years on Dreamstime!!!


posted on 2nd of september, 2011

Hello!!! recently I celebrated my birthday, my first level5 image and now it's time to celebrate again: my 2th DT-day!!! and I am very happy also for having reached 4000 sales :-)
It's a great success for me, whereas I am not a professional :-) I started a bit for fun, to see what I was able to do and I never imagined being able to get to this level. In these two years I have learned a lot: I started from zero and I think this can be seen from my first illustrations that are very simple compared to today's. Day after day I learned new techniques, learned from refusal and I learned from other illustrators who were here longer time than me. And I found a great community that is like one big family; we exchange opinions, share joys, techniques, tips, etc. Also I found that Dt's staff is very professional, cordial, composed of young guys highly qualified. I think all of us, at least once, we are angry with them for a refusal, but more than one occasion I was happy when a reviewer has changed its decision after listening to my point of view :-)
Sometimes I wonder if I had started earlier, several years ago... I certainly would have gained more $$$, but I'm also happy for what I am able to obtain and I hope to do better :-) Surely I must work hard because today the competition is very high ;-)
Finally, there is another thing I am happy: my improvement in English language :-)))

These are my stats after two years:

827 files online
4000 sales
91,5% AR
$ 1,59 RPD
4.84 Download per image
Monthly uploads 34.46 average

and this is my sale n° 4000



Thanks to all for reading and have a good day!
Bye, Francesca :-)

Thanks to all for your comments :-)
Jerryway: I noticed an increase of subscriptions last two months due, I think, to new weekly subscriptions, but the credit sales take me a good rpd. For example: on august I made 238 sales, 190 subs and only 48 credits. I had at last $1,46 RPD. I think it's not too bad with 190 subs :-)

That`s great Francesca! Congratulations and good luck for the future!

4000 sales in 2 years, great achievement indeed. It is more impressive that you did that with a relatively "small" portfolio.

There are many other contributors who have been with DT for over two years, but less than 1/10 of your sales figure. I am pretty sure your number will make them jealous :-)

By the way, since you have been with DT for two years and with an impressive sales number, I am curious to know if you see a decline of RPD with the introduction of subscription sales.
