DT would sell more if they switched from green and pink and changed the name of the business.

The product needs rebranding and relaunching.

RPD = rate per download ?


RPD = return per download, or in other words how much money you are getting for each download on average.

Hi All,

 My bad on my numbers. I thought your RPD was based off of how many downloads you have had divided by how many images you have in the system over a certain period of time, like a month or a year. Is this not how RPD is calculated in Micro? It sounds like I am hearing that RPD only includes your downloaded images divided by themselves, excluding all your non sellers. Thanks for any help.

Best,
Jonathan

It sounds like what you are referring to is RPI - Return per Image

Your total sales (in $$) divided by your total images

total $$ / total images = RPI

or maybe you are talking about is DPI (downloads per image)

Total number of downloads / total number of images = DPI

but this stat isn't talked about very often and isn't what we are discussing here.


What this thread is discussing is RPD - Return per Download, to figure out how much we are getting per downloaded file, or in other words, how much we get for each sale.  This is calculated like this

Total $$ earned / total # of sales = RPD


  I hope this helps :)

The only time my RPD was under $1.13 this year was the month that a subs buyer purchased every photo in my port with the keyword Saskatchewan bringing down my average but boosting my actual earnings.  Excluding May - My RPD at lowest was $1.13, highest $1.67.  This month so far has been extremely good at DT.

Thanks Leaf,

 Yea that helps a lot. My numbers were off as I was dividing my downloads by how many images I have in my collection. So I should divide my income over the time period discussed by the number of downloads I have had during that time period to get the right answer, is that correct ?

Cheers,
Jonathan

yes that is right.  Dreamstimes does this automatically for you though on their stats page.

Very cool Leaf,

I didn't know about that at Dreamstime, that's a nice feature I'll start using it.

Best,
J
