Top 5 Reasons to Go Exclusive with DT

posted on 29th of april, 2010

1) My photos get reviewed much faster. I uploaded this panorama photo less than 24 hours ago.

2) My earnings instantly grew upon being accepted

3) I get more $ per download

4) I see my photos higher in search results... This photo of the Buddha is on page 1 for keyword "buddha." It has 1 download and has been online for less than 72 hours.

5) I can spend more time taking photos instead of managing my photos with multiple stock agencies.

Thanks DT.

EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that faster image review times may have nothing to do with my exclusivity. It seemed that right after I went exclusive, my wait times were reduced significantly. I attributed that to my exclusive status. Oh well.

DT is a community where others are only agencies. This makes the real difference.

Also DT has the best software when compared to others.

I am really very pleased to feel myself belonging here .

I went exclusive because of #5 alone. It has worked for me but I can see why others would not want to be exclusive. I just found it was alot of extra work to have multiple sites to manage especially since this is my fun job! I actually have two fun jobs so I am lucky. ;-)

I am not exclusive; not yet.. but I certainly can relate the advantages of going exclusive for those who do not have the insurmountable task of deleting all the old images you have with the other sites.
Certainly one most attractive incentive , other than higher commissions and placement, would be the workflow and the reduction of time needed to upload to 4 of the top sites, or whatever. The time you save could be energy conserved to create more images for just Dreamstime and thus
your portfolio gets larger faster, which in turn means even more commissions earned.
Congrats. It certainly wouldn't be any regret to go exclusive with Dreamstime; but.. I don't have to tell you that :)

Thanks for sharing this! Great! I like your reasons and they are true! I hope this is an inspiration for others to become exclusive with DT!

They recently capped the max limit for uploading, and the queue has seemed smaller even since - which should help review times. Yuri Arcurs hasn't even uploaded since then!

Hmmm, ever since I went exclusive, my wait times have considerably shrunk. Maybe it's something else.

I'd agreed with you...but I haven't got good enough photos for exclusivity :)

I agree with you and that was the reason to become exclusive, which I don't regret at all.... And agree with Mani about the review time.

Reviewed much faster wasn't because of exclusivity for sure! Less pending images! I'm exclusive & the pending time differ! Good luck anyway ;)
