Dear friends, today I want to talk about "Acceptance Ratio". Since I joined to Dreamstime, January 2011 is the first month that I have 100% A.R. and for me it's a great satisfaction!!!
Other months I have come close to this goal and finally it was happened :-) I think AR is a very important element for each contributor and if it is high, we understand what is better accepted on DT, then what "potentially" could better sell. It has already been discussed many times in this topic, but I am of the opinion that AR plays a key role on placement of our files in the DT database.
Obviously AR is added to other factors:"Title, description and keywords" that are really the "most important".
Just out of curiosity, my average AR is 91,3%, what is yours?
Have a good day!!! Bye, Francesca
impressive, I think what this illustrates once again is how much easier it is to be an illustrator with software as your brush. its 1000 percent harder to be a photog and theres a 1000 times more competition in stock, it is for this reason that I think the two should be separate in DT different sites/sections and the AR is really not comparable.
Impressive! I don't think AR makes a big difference in placement - it would be hard to imagine a case where relevancy is similar enough that AR would be the only differentiator. In any case, I think AR is very important for no other reason than it saves you time - let no image go unused!
Thanks for your comments! Physi28 Me too, also because there is always something to learn from refusals :-) Roberto1977 18 months without refusals? You are a legend! For Photographers all I think for the photographer is much more difficult compared to illustrators. There are several factors to consider:lens quality, lights, noise, composition,etc... Bye, Francesca!
Yes, it does work out better to reject from our side before submitting to Dreamstime. Give them only the best, and nothing else
almost 3 years old, i have been hovering in the 70% mark. but the past few months I have critically edited my uploaded work to happily see 100% most times. It's wonderful to know you succeed sooner to go for quality vs quantity. . Tutti beni :)
