Hi everyone! Recently, my pictures are sold primarily only here. Other photobanks greatly reduced my sales. I think to stay only on dreamstime. And to become an exclusive photographer. I hope this photobank approve.
I can advise you not to base your decision to be exclusive upon the fact that you're selling slow on other sites. Because once you go exclusive here and start selling you will probably start asking yourself whether you could have been selling well on all other agencies you turned your back to. There are many other advantages about exclusivity and the other contributors before me have shared some good, yet individual reasons why you should be exclusive.
It happened to me also that the other stock agency where I was together with DT was not making any sales with my pics and refusing pics which not only were accepted at DT but also getting sold. For that reason I moved to exclusivity at DT.
I've been exclusve for about 5-6 months now and am really glad I made the move. It now means that I can put all my energy into creating images for one organisation that I am starting to get to know well.
It is of course a personal decision but I haven't regretted it.
Exclusivity issue strongly depends upon what one wants to get from microstoc. So, I can't give you a direct advise. But I can say that for me it seems to be the best solution and works perfectly well. I am exclusive for an year or so and am not going to cancel exclusivity.
I have not yet got the required number of images to become exclusive, but from all that I am reading it certainly sound like something worth doing and I do plan to apply myself very soon when I pass the 50 images limit.
