Today I made it: I got over 2000 files accepted at Dreamstime.
The acceptance ratio was 88.6%, which is fair enough.
It took me about two years to reach that goal. In the meantime I received over 2200 sales (that means 1.13 DL/image), so thanks to all the buyers for that as well.
The bestseller so far: A man holding his aching back. My RPD (return per download) is about 0.75 USD for the last months.
I really love two things about Dreamstime that over agencies do not have: Their ability to show what keywords the customers used to search for an image is a really helpful insight in creating new images.
I also love the pricing system which makes an image more expensive the more it gets downloaded. Sounds fair to me.
