My First 100 Downloads!

posted on 29th of october, 2009

No I didn't mean I had 100 sales! Maybe one day I hope :))

I'm on the other side of the business... I made my first 100 downloads from DT as a buyer! I love to use photos for everything!

Showing my e-mails with unique images! Use them on the sites I do as a webdesigner!

I have a plan to insert new photos on my sites, even with out a return from the client!
Believe me my clients love that & they appreciate my work more & more! By time they arrange more work & of course a financial return!
Mid term marketing plan if you want to call it like this! ;)

From what I noticed people get more interested when you illustrate what you say in a simple photo! (Joke, Alert, Facts, Opinion... etc.)

I'll leave you with SOME photos from my downloads & please don't ask me if I downloaded any of your's!
The answer is maybe, I usually let people know but if I forgot! You got the sale & one more push up for the photo!
As you notice no limit for my subjects!

Cheers all ;)

Hint: My Best of collection is my first reference for what I download!

Hi Maen!

I am just catching up on the blogs, so am rather late with this message. You are such an enthusiastic member of Dreamstime. I look for you every day, wondering what you are up to, and what you have to say:) Now I know you wear two hats--a buyer and a seller. Such good ideas you have. Good luck with it all. Web design can be a competitive business.

Thanks Kasienka! Wish you great luck also ;)

Hi Maen! You are extremely original! It is the first time that I see the post with 100 downloads written by person who actually is buying not selling photos. I am really surprised and yesss it is great idea to post some of the downloads... I have sold quite a few files and recently I have managed to trace only one of them. It is great feeling to find it out;-).
Success with your work!

Hi Christopher!
I'm a freelancer webdesigner... I don't have a personal page at the moment but I do have some links in my previous blogs with sites I made & the use of some photos...
Cheers ;)

Great to hear it from a buyer's side. Do you have a link to your website? I've checked out your page but didn't see a link - perhaps Im missing something? I'll be great to see how the photos are being used.

Thanks Lingong :)
Magsellen Not that much comparing to subscriptions! ;)

Congratulations!I believe you'll have more downloads!!!

From Not Mean Man Mani (Maen) to Maigi thanks :)
Yes, for the common wish I have to get more customers! But customers who pay as well! :))

Thanks Joe1971

Keep up your good work Not A Mean Man Mani, whose real name is Maen. Hmm, confusing. I starred at your blog's title and tried to figure out, how you have 100 dls, with 26 sales, but first sentence solved quickly the mystery. You are doing great job! Nice photos! It's our common wish that you'll keep downloading! :)) Lots of customers to you! Cheers! ;)

It's a nice photo.

WOW Creativei thank you bro but I am nothing in photography industry!
I'm just a small illustrator & game addicted :)))

Ebamo many sales to come! Keep uploading ;)

Carla And 6595740 will have a name of baby then I will print it to put it in a frame, just a small gift for a new baby born of friend...
3414737 & 4371663 will go to a web site that I will tell you about later!
You are an artist!

I think you're right: a good image can emphasize a project quite well. And clients may enjoy more your ideas if they have a fully colored illustrated brochure to see.
And with DT this is really cheap!

Thanks for using my mice for your blog :)

Posted by Ebamo on October 31, 2009
Thanks ...Wow! it's my first sale , you made my day! God bless you.

Posted by Mani33 on October 30, 2009
Thanks Asyan & Gyeah, but I never been misterious neither voice less :))
If you check some of my previous blogs you will see that I told about where I have used some photos! But maybe the number made bigger impact :))

Posted by Gyeah on October 30, 2009
