What am I doing wrong?

posted on 17th of september, 2013

Hi all...
I need your help.

I've started the microstock adventure with Dreamstime in June... I have a portfolio of 38 photos with a low rate of approval (only 40%).

In 4 months only 2 sales but I have more than 17 pictures with more than 50 views. So I do not think that the problem is in the visibility of my portfolio in the database.

So... why only 2 sales?
What's wrong with what I am doing?

In other microstock website my sales are better...
I have a lot of doubts...

What do you think?

Thanks to everyone will read this article!
A big hug!

Me too Stefania,
On other sites I sell with perhaps two views here I have images with 70 views and no sales. I am not sure if all views are equal across agencies.

You are doing nothing wrong. Stock photography is a numbers game. The more images that you have listed the more sells that you will make. It's that simple. Just keep shooting and uploading and the sells will come.
Best of luck.
