Two months without an upload and sales are just as rubbish

Just now, I sold three photos of the same subject at the same time on DT. Must have been bought by the same person. Thankyou buyer.

Appallingly bad. I absolutely have no idea why they rank third here. Totally inaccurate.

Sales every blue moon but everyday those annoying "images with no downloads" emails keep coming.

I was going to ask the same. DT used to be one of the top 4 didn't they? Now #7 and 8 more that don't have enough votes are also ahead of them. Barely ahead of Mostphotos which shows how far DT has actually sank.

And isn't there always someone that's the exception in these topics? ;D
Unusually strong December for DT and I have next to nothing with a
Christmas theme in my portfolio. I even had a few days this month when
DT was beating out SS. The big holiday stinker for me was 123RF. Off the
cliff and into the deep, black hole. 7 sales with a portfolio in the +2500
category.  ???

Oddly I had some sales between xmas/newyear and not in the least seasonal....I find DT has the habit of selling just when you think it is finally dead and some very unexpected images too.......

No answer from Herg. DT holds 7th if you ignore Clipartof, canva, self, Getty, eye, dissolve, story, and mostphoto. In which case DT would be 16 on the list. I'm not impressed with that 7.2 at all.

If I did all that much with music sales like he says, I would leave micro photo and concentrate where I make the best money.

2017 was about 35% of the earnings as in 2016.

I had falls with all agencies, but DT was the worst decrease by far.

It's a pity because they use to be my third highest earner now they're only about 15% of what I earn on shutterstock.

might be time to buy a van and a surfboard, and get some Instagram followers.

I'm not so sure agencies seem to hang around for years selling almost nothing...but i'm certainly seeing sharp declines in sales of the "lesser" agencies

It's a nice site but it seems to be going down ImageBrief's direction unless management there can do something extraordinary
