Today I have a tiny earning for my editorial image (see insert)
This brings the download count to 5. If I am not mistaken that will mean this image goes up to the next level.
So far, I have only one earlier image (ie. isolated of baby hedgehog)
that succeeded going up to the next level.
I am wondering if there is any benefit to this?
I am sure many of you here have lots of images ascending to the next level after 5 downloads. Do you find that it gives you any benefit to your portfolio?
- does this increase your visibility in the search placement?
- do you find that having a higher level image rating offer you more downloads for this image, and / or more downloads to your portfolio
I read that there isn't a higher commission benefit...
Getting more downloads should help search placement, and generally I would agree that images at higher levels seem to sell well. I hesitate to say 'sell more' because the fact that they get to the second level in the first place indicates they will do well regardless... I did wonder if getting more expensive would hurt sales, but haven't really seen any evidence of that. Congrats!
