Exclusive Rights

posted on 20th of january, 2012

Although my regular sales seem okay for a newbie ( 5 over the last week), it appears the real bucks are in someone buying the exclusive rights to an image. Does this happen very often or is it a rare occurrence. I would like to be able to upgrade my mode of transportation (on the left) to something a little more comfortable.

Wisconsinart is correct. Those types of sales are rare. Just keep building your portfolio and diversify. The more diverse you are and the higher number of uploads, the better your sales will be. Best of luck to you!

It never happens (I think)... Anyone that wants the exclusive rights of an image won't look at a microstock site for it.

It's rare. I haven't had one for over 3 years.

Rare. The bread and butter comes from building a diverse, STOCK-oriented portfolio.
