How to promote our portfolio to increase sale?

posted on 5th of december, 2012

Dear friends,

Happy Christmas to you all (in advance :D)

I have a silly question and hope you don't mind.
Is there any media (like face book, twitter or blog) to promote ours portfolio ourselves to increase the sale? Will it be effective? I believe DT will do it but I don't know is it better if we also do the promotion.

Hope all of you have better sale in this coming festive season.

Hi there! Nice portfolio ! I am just starting with DT and also am on FB. For myself I find that there is a really fine line as to what is appropriate with FB due to their policies about ownership.

Agree with Angelaravaioli. Her advice is very good. Also would like to add that Facebook really can help with sales.

The image that allowed me to Dream on Dreamstime..

posted on 13th of december, 2012

Like every beginners, I was very frustrated, demoralized and felt hopeless during my initial stage at Dreamstime.
Tons of rejections as a result of blur images, lens fringing, chromatic aberrations, uneven sharpness in focus area, image is out of focus, poor optical performance due to low lens quality, and many more...Also very poor acceptance ratio limit the quantity of upload.

I registered with Dreamstime on 25th of November, 2008. The fist image sold was on 5th January 2009 (about a month after registering with DT), which made me very happy and I was jumping around. I even called my girl friend (now my lovely wife) and informed her about my great achievement. [link=https://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photos-bridge-over-singapore-river-image7306818]...

Congratulations! Bravo for surviving the frustration we all face at the inception of our journey as it is well know that more fuel is burnt in take-off than in the entire journey by the rocket. So, only few who dare to burn more fuel in order to complete the journey, only succeed. You too have done that and once again you have proved the point that great result can be achieved even in the absence of expensive equipments. Thanks for inspiring all of us. Keep enlightening ! Best of Luck for future sales. God Bless you![imgl]https://www.dreamstime.com/modify.php?imageid=28746824[/imgl]

Sorry guys. I made a mistake.
The third image sold was this one and the fourth was this.

The fourth image I sold for $12.66, and here it is the link as the site banner.

Cheers... :D
