My sales are zero from 08/05/2011.I had 2 sales from the start of the month: 1 sub and 1 credit.With 202 photos online you will think that sales are becoming steady but in fact i guess my photos are useless for stock.The bad thing is that i don't know what to do next.Im run out of ideas.Any advices?
Ive found image sales can be very irregular, month to month. Last month I had 10 sales from my small portfolio, but so far this month Ive only had one. You have an incredible range to your portfolio, from people to scenics to products to creative illustrations. I wish I had your variety! It will pick up as we get closer to the holidays. My one suggestion would be to put more keywords for your images. Good luck!
Yes! I can repeat this literally word-to-word... I also share much of your frustration and concerns, but I still think (hope) we've been simply unlucky this summer, and things will get better in the busier autumn. The other advices, of revising your keywords and adding more, of uploading more diverse themes/subjects and... not least being patient and hopeful - are all rightful and, note, they are supportive! :)
I like your portfolio, so many amazing images that stand out. Like some said, sales can be erratic from month to month. Good idea to re-look at your keywords in the meanwhile. Or you could also expand more on editorial images. Best of luck! :)
