21,000+ sales after 4 years at DT

posted on 1st of june, 2013

Wow, where does the time go? It was May 5, 2009 when I joined Dreamstime. It was October of 2010 when I last updated my sales. At that time, I had 4653 images with 8500 sales, which I think was pretty good for the first 18 months here at DT.

Fast-forward 2 1/2 more years and here we are. I now have 6270 images online with 21712 sales.

I've only added 1617 new images these past 30 months, so it's obvious that I have not been drawing as much as I used to. My other client work has taken me away from my mass-drawing abilities, but I do try to keep adding new images as often as I can.

Hey TMarchev. Thanks for the comment. Wow! I cannot believe that it has been over a year since I posted this blog entry. Now I'm at 7049 images with 26172 sales.

I've never posted revenue before, but no one has ever asked either. Ha! Here at DT, it's just over $32,000 since I joined. I hope that providing that figure helps to inspire and encourage others that it's possible to make a living doing microstock. It's just a lot of hard work, time, and energy.

Meanwhile, hopefully the next 5 years will be even stronger! :)

Best wishes to all of you on your continued journey.
