a little frustrated

posted on 18th of december, 2011

December is my worst sales moth. Over more than half moth past, I've got only two sales , little views of portfolio . Before the two slaes appeared, I even doubted my account was blocked for buyers. I wonder is there anyone here has the same situation like me this month? wish better sales in the next half month of december!

Sales come and go, some months are much worse than others for unknown results. Keep uploading, you've got great shots so don't give up. As Mjak is pointing out, though, you should spend a bit of time checking each one of your image with the spell checker.

thanks for all the comments ,especially for Mjak who points out my careless spelling mistakes.

My dear, low sales can be the natural consequence of inatentiveness with keywords, titles and general spelling mistakes. December is a month, not moth (insect). People looking for libRary will never find "libary", same as "morden" building, "pedestrain" strees and "trffic" lights. Fix spelling, I think it will help. Good luck!

Be patient! Sales will come.

This month is all about Christmas and New Year, that's probably the reason, it was a pretty good month for me, but I sold only season specific images :)

It could be near toward the Holiday season so people are closing their book and bla bla blaa..... ! Your profile are wonderful, keep uploading and sale will find it way.

i have same problem as your i have 2 sales in this month :(

I have 9 sales in December and all are christmas images so guess thats mainly what sells in December, if you dont have alot of christmas images in your portfolio you might lower your sells in december?

december is being average so far, november was a bad month to me! But I think you have to see results on a quarterly (3 months) basis, where you willl be able to se better if you are increasing sales on a general way, it is the way I consider my evolution as from month to month results can vary a lot!

Dear JLHope, Probably increasing the size of your portfolio will help..... I was thinking things were quiet when suddenly $150 came in for a few sales last week David.

Your portfolio is beautiful but it is mainly focused on industry, commerce and education. Probably december is not the best month for these typer of pictures...

Upload more images to enrich your portfolio, I believe that you will have more sales.

My opinion is, you have to wait and wait a little to get more visibility, sales will come! You have a portfolio well done and beautiful photographs of interiors, wait and you will sell much. The advice is still to achieve even images!
