Who is doing well being Exclusive here?

posted on 3rd of october, 2008

I recently wrote an article about being exclusive.
1st Month of Being Exlusive

I thought that the blog maybe useful for those who are on the fence and deciding whether or not to be exclusive. But what I thought would be more useful is seeing how others are doing after being exclusive.

I wanted to edit that blog to ask for contributions and comments from others but not sure how to edit after it is published. So this blog is going to be a survey opinion blog. For those who are exclusive contributors, please contribute your thoughts in the comments sections to help others decide. Thanks.

Hey Brad. You portfolio is looking great. It looks like your photography is keeping you pretty busy nowadays since your portfolio is much larger than when I looked at it last.

IF microstock were my only interest i would go exclusive

if you want to sell on rights managed sites, want to sell prints, shirts, cards,or gift items on a print on demand, want to market your art of any type not just rf stock shots, on sites or have your artwork locally....then do not go exclusive.

someone else could do those things with your art but you cannot. i just ended my exclusive status this week for the above reasons.

if the only thing i wanted to do with my images was submit them here and be content with someone else using them, or did not want to market them myself elsewhere.... i would be exclusive here.

however i have to say that apart from the bonuses i got when i signed on to exclusive, i did not see a major difference in sales after the first week or so.

I became exclusive just over a month ago, the extra $ with each approved upload and sale has been a nice bonus. In addition, I have noticed an increase in views on my images. For me, the decision to become exclusive has brought positive results.
