We Have Lift Off!

posted on 2nd of september, 2015

Okay, so it's taken 6 months, but I finally have my first sale on DT! That $0.35 has made my day :) Hopefully now the floodgates will open and more sales will follow. However, I do think I need to re-keyword my images--and upload lots more--to stand any chance of making regular sales. Never mind #motivationmonday it must be #midweekmotivation :)

For those interested this is the picture I sold

Congrats on your first sales and perseverance. It is nice to see when a stock image finds usage as this also complements the photographer. The payment is usually micro, as you pointed out. Good luck with your images.

Great image Jennifer, congrats!
Sales will come but you need to upload many more.
For me, the more substantial sales came when I passed 700 uploads...
Most important in keywording is relevant ones :)

Congratulations on your first sale-the photo is awesome!
Your portfolio has many nice photographs-it just takes time and patience for sales.

Good luck with future uploads and sales.

I saw many images in your portfolio. Your key-wording is good so no need to change. Yes, key wording plays a role but photo is more important . This photo of yours has just 8 views and one download. Best wishes and keep shooting.
