My portfolio nears 200 but so far this month I have had 3 dls, the last over a week ago.

I understand that relatively speaking my portfolio is small, that said the volume of sales has fallen consistently while my portfolio grows. I would like to think that I am contributing better material now than when I started a year ok. If you view my port and sort by age you can see if you agree.

I would be interested to hear how contributers with small ports on IS or who started there in the last year are faring?

Ah! yes....I know all about this. Seems it started about a week ago.
Have a look here -  this may explain the reason your not selling anything!

Well knowing that there is a scientific reason puts my mind at ease ;-)

I have 101 files online and average around 3 to 4 downloads per day.

In my personal experience with IS I haven't seen any correlation between portfolio size and sales. I've seen contributors with a couple dozen images and a huge amount of downloads.

Some of the newer stuff you have looks good. An example being the wine glass which eventually I think will sell well. I can see it being used for an advertisement like a postcard. But your newer stuff may take a month or two to pick up momentum so give it some time. I would suggest spending more time on optimizing keywording.

It's about saleable images and subjects. What is the image concept? How could it be used by a buyer? Even if it's a great image or concept, is the subject timely and in demand?

I'd say you're on the right track.
