I was comparing some of my sales stats today and was wondering why I am not getting increased sales here.  I started at several sites a couple of years ago.  I upload a set of images every few days.  Two years later I have, for the same images,  about 50% more images accepted at shutterstock than fotolia.   In addition, my total sales per week has climbed from both starting at 0 to $20-50 per week at Shutterstock and from 0 to $4 per week at Fotolia.  So Fotolia is more picky on its image acceptance AND there is a really weak relationship between added images and increased sales.   I don't do people shots....is that my problem with Fotolia??

no.. SS is just the big boss :) (have 5 times more sales in SS than in FT) and close in portfolio

it is just the difference between the top agency to a 4th or 5th in my case (and also to most)

I also do not do people; I am having similar acceptance rates between SS and Fotolia but sales at SS far outpace Fotolia.  I have only been uploading to these two sites since mid-month of Feb 2011; have approx 600 images on each site.  I have had six sales at Fotolia and over a hundred at SS

I believe it is a matter of markets; I believe Fotolia serves a different market and has lower sales for our type of images.
