My Dreamstime sales back up over $100 per month

posted on 28th of may, 2009

This month saw a boost to my sales even though I have not submitted for a while. The benefit of Dreamstime as a micro is that your sales continue to grow even if your portfolio stays static.

My average sale price has rocketed up to $1.75 each which to me is very very good.

One of the most understated benefits of being on Dreamstime is the image level. That is, the more sales you have of one particular image, the more you earn from a sale.

Even though some of my pics are now 2 years old, they are now making much more money for me than when they were new, because they have reached a new image level.

Check out this white van. It was parked on the street outside my apartment. I ran down, took a photo, clipped the van, and submitted it to DT. The whole process took less than 4 minutes. It has now sold 81 times here.

Thanks all. Yes Rangpl, sometimes the simplest shots are great returns. On the other hand, the picture of the pier took 4 hours, I got soaked, needed a camera service, and it has only sold a few times. Go figure!
