I wonder if promoting your sites, is Prohibited by the Terms of Use? I've read the agreement and did not found anything about it.

My wondering is regarding the some kind of advertising for contributors.

Can you add your sites under your signature - so people will found your works on different sites easily?

and from other hand
Some users avoid to share their stock or any footage sites. As I've understood, only high level (top) sellers avoid to do that. Maybe not all, but when i am talk to anybody who making good profit on stock agencies they are very rarely gives the links to their pages.

Is it as they are afraid or somehow trying to avoid plagiarism from their works?
What are your thoughts on this?
How you promote yourself?
Do you do so even?

Regards

To avoid plagiarism but mostly to avoid other people following your steps and ideas which isn't technically plagiarism.

I am thinking the same.
They trying to avoid it as they do not want any other one be on the same level with them, as the competition could be high and you can overcome their top position.

Also, this site is mainly for sellers, though some buyers no doubt look in and some sellers are also buyers.

Still life concepts appear to be the easiest to copy, so it makes sense for such artists to keep their cards close to their chests.

I suppose that I'm fortunate that much  of my portfolio consist of time sensitive breaking news and travel editorials which are difficult, if not impossible, to replicate. Therefore, I've been quite open about which are my best sellers and why.

I have a blog with an ebook so for me promoting is part of the game.

For selling print on demand, it appears that to achieve regular sales,  promoting is a necessary evil.
