February has just ended. But no sale for me. Is it just happen to me only? How about you guys?
But I hope that this is a kind of Up and Down situation as long as Stock photography is concerned. So I won't give up and will upload more and more as much as I can so long as DT accept my images. Keep going... [encouraging myself] :D
I can report that sales are slow on all major micro stock sites and have been since April 2012. Yes some months are better than others but overall low sales and the trend is still downwards. I am interested to know why this is. Is it because people are simply downloading or screen scraping photos directly from google and what are the other contributing factors?
Yes, sales do come and go, all quite normal. For me January was looking hopeless, over halfway into the month and no sales and then several large sales in the later half made it my best ever month, so hold out and hopefully things will swing round for you.
I had a slow month, but I haven't been uploading. I am trying to move from capturing moments to creating stock images. i just haven't been happy with the results yet, but I am hoping my efforts will pay off soon.
You get those months I suppose. I had an OK month considering the size of my portfolio. Just hang in there...it will pick up soon. Maybe consider adding some different images with people doing things. Look around for the unique things in your area. Always think stock!! Good luck
