My music machine

posted on 11th of february, 2010

This illustration has been sold here only 2 times. On other places, much more. Can you tell me what is wrong in here? I mean in my illustration. I think Dreamstime is a great place, but the people here have bad access to our pictures and illustrations. This is my honest opinion. Do you think that we can do something about that? Don't tell me about to go exclusive. They are advantages and they are disadvantages. Think about that. Maybe the keywords, or the search engine. I don't know...
What do you think?

Thank you for reading this,

You are perfectly wright. Thank you for answering this, in fact after I changed the keywords and description, I had another one sale for this illustration. Thanks again.

The problem with not being exclusive is that what works on one site doesn't work elsewhere. My opinion is that you have over keyworded this image for DT (oil, silhouette, skull, etc.) which lowers relevancy in searches. As well, I'd choose a title like 'music machine' or 'music illustration' that will be more likely to match. Finally, your description has non-relevant terms and misses the obvious one - 'music'. The illustration itself looks great!

Ok some input as a buyer. In my previous company and some other ad agency i work as freelancer. They consider DT for images and two other sites for vectors. Reason, company has subscription in other site where we get vector for just few cents. Same illustrator to buy here is expensive.

Ya wright, maybe not here... only. Sure

The image is nice but it probably just doesn't have mass market appeal.

Yes, that could be a good point. But... what do you do if you have more than 600 files, and only a small percent of them they sell? Do you change your keywords for all of them? And how come in other search engines they can be easily found and they sale very good, and here they don't? I am talking here about the same images with the same keywords. How do you explain that?

I noticed that on different stocks searches work a bit differently. With the same key-words an image can appear on first page in one place and in the end of a quew in another. I think if image doesnt appear on a good position in some place, better rekeyword.

Thanks, good point.

I think it's interesting. Your illustration is okay. Maybe the search engine is the problem. This is what I think. Nice portofolio.
