DT, is beginning to sell very well, it can go a few days with a little bit here and there and then all of a sudden a small fortune comes in. Cocistant and secure agency!

see I bring more good news today!  we are supposed to be positive in this forum, right!

DT and FT below 123RF seem that will become this way for me

123RF is over the roof, three days in a row with more than 10 sales a day, different buyers and nice sales

Month to date double what my highest sales for a month with them was so far. 123RF rocks!

So far this month, Dreamstime is beating iStock for me for the first time. I hope it continues at this pace, because it's making up for my iStock losses.

How is this possible?  I have <7% of my DT images on IS yet revenue from IS is 75% of DT  ???

iStock has been continuously losing Dls for me over last year's monthly totals, and Dreamstime could just be having a spike month for me. I have about 35% of my DT files at iS. It's pretty close (just a couple dollars apart).

So in round numbers that's a return per online image 3 times greater at IS.  I wonder how the various sites stack up on this kind of basis?  In my case it's about 13:1 averaged over a year (mind you, 13 times bugger all is still not a lot  ;)).  I think I've figured out why though ...

Hey Duncan if you are still out there...

Every single time I upload a couple by Activex I get this page when it's done.

Might  be a good idea to drop a note into a Canstock thread.  Not sure if Duncan would be likely to read a DT one.  :)

DT has picked up a lot for me.  I am getting a lot of $4-$11 dls the last couple of months.  But it is still behind IS by a bit, say $50-$100 a month.  But if I count partner program sales IS is way more.

What is wrong with me?  I thought I posted this comment in a thread where Duncan challenged someone to upload 400 photos to see how fast they would be reviewed... am I in a dream world?

Yes, you've got what is known as Microstockhome syndrome. You need to switch off from all microstock activities for a month. Give your passwords to your partner so that she can change them. Come back after a month and let us know how you got on.

Very good sales at DT for me, already BME with no EL's. IS is lagging behind...

DT sales for me are only occasional.  I get a lot more activity at SS.

How would your income at DT compare if you eliminated all but your top selling 7%?

Probably not the right question but I get your point.  If I just look at the images common to both sites over the same time period revenue on IS is only 5 times greater than DT.
