Seriously, how is Dreamstime's situation?

posted on 25th of july, 2012

I've been asking myself this for a few months. Since April things started goind really bad here, but anyway I've never had great numbers on Dreamstime.

I'm writing this beacuse I realized that today, in 24 hours, on another agency (a good agency, not a crappy one) I've had more sales than on DT in two MONTHS.
One day vs two months. Is it all right for you? Not for me.
I think there's something really wrong. Even low tiers perform much better in terms of sales than DT for me.
If Dreamstime wanna be a top tier should think about this. I'm not a newbie, and my company manages to sell almost 100.000 images a year (and we started in january 18th 2011 as pros). Do you know how much of the total is DT? About 1,8%.

Indeed I'm not uploading anymore, just a few every month just to keep my AR high (100%).
