More exclusive images

posted on 11th of october, 2010

In August I have decided to take a step toward offering more exclusive images in Dreamstime. The reason? The fair treatment they give to us contributors (not to mention the friendly personal and kind replies you get when contacting support) and the fact that the DT ranking by images make it a perfect way to give a boost to your earnings, with some exclusives 'top sellers'.

My intention is to increase the exclusive images percentage because the results are encouraging. Of course, to have some success, exclusive images must be of good quality, not second choices.

My impression after a few weeks of this new strategy is that my downloads have increased and especially I see those red underlines of exclusive sales more and more in my sale page :-) mostly an average of 6-7 exclusive images licensed, per page.

Here some of my exclusives (you can see more on my profile page):

Hi Saniphoto,

You recently removed an image I was looking to purchase. I haven't been able to find any other means of contacting you. I was hoping you might consider temporarily putting it back up for me to purchase. If you could please contact me at my username that's shown above @gmail.com, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Hi Saniphoto - I have a question about one of your images, I'm wondering if you have any higher resolution on it. How can I contact you?

Hi Saniphoto:

I am interested in one of your photos for a book cover (the wolf/dreamcatcher) -- but I don't need the wolf element! I am guessing you have the photo without the two elements.

Can you possibly contact me about the photo if it is available?

My blog: www.BearMountainBooks.com (contact is down on the left sidebar).

Or: Mariabmbooks

LOVE your photos. Maria

Hi, I am a self-published writer and want to use one of your images for my book cover (its a wolf against a sunset). I am self designing the cover but want to give you credit for the photo on the cover. I don't know how to contact you. My email is rebecca_blackst@hotmail.com. I am planning to download the photo from this site, but I think it is nice to credit artists where you can. Would be great to hear from you.
