Make sure that the subject is covered!

posted on 19th of october, 2010

Sometimes you look to your portfolio and you think to your self, if you are doing a complete work!
Are these enough to make your sales regular?! Have you covered a subject that you have started?! Is there away that you can add more images from the same concept?! Do I fulfill the perspectives of a buyer?!
Naturally every time & then every Microstocker stops for a second thought on his portfolio!!!

It's the reason photographers run to get new models to cover some subjects! And it's the reason some photographers can't stop working!
Obviously it's the reason how some photographers could have a huge portfolios!

How can we compete with such a huge amount of sellers on Microstocks?

Look at your portfolio & see what you can do! Make a question to your self... How can I convince a visitor (buyer) that my varieties are covering what he/she needs?! Don't make one of a kind & relax!

I did that to my port & my simple thoughts went like...

1- I have many euro coin illustrations on my port! Do I miss more? Of course! Many!!
2- The best of them is an assignment file that had a concept! No continuous work! :(
3- The game had taught me many lessons including that silhouettes are good sales potentials!
4- With the cost of life going higher! We see many commercials using the coin of 2 euros instead of 1 euro!!!

I really have a lot to do on this subject! So I've started & most is not yet online! ;)

Here are the results...

Who would think of coins, could think of anything else on my port & your port!!!

Have a good inspiration everyone! ;)

I think you are right. Adding "depth" to a portfolio makes good sense. (I always look to see what you have added to your coin collection.) Thanks for sharing:)
