......tryin free, we'll see.

posted on 9th of june, 2011

Well, I took the leap and clicked the "ok to offer free if not accepted" button on my submit page, and wa-la, suddenly there were 4 free pictures offered by me. And, since I am only 3 months old, I still don't really know what I am doing, so most of this is experimental. I see some pros/cons offered by other contributors but I really don't know what to think....I guess we will find out. So much to learn...such a tall hill to climb, but I sure am having a great time!! Next step: to see if I want to go exclusive or not......hummm. Guess I will study this free pro/con stuff first.

I think the buyers first look for the item in the free section. I uploaded Airplane Wing 14267032 in the free section an year ago and it was downloaded 58 times !!

Well your are doing great, free images incrase your portfolio exposure. In my case I decided to go exclusive because I don't have too much time to work on several microstock sites, so it works very weel for me.
