Hey guys,

I'm trying to get insight on what kind of portfolio grabs the highest number of EL sales (compared to SL sales), be the the type of work, (photography, illustration, video) or your subject (still life, people images, cartoon images, or design elements). I'm sure there are patterns to be identified, which means it'll be very useful information for those new to microstock. (Like me!)

I'll start off by sharing my info:

Portfolio type: 100% Vector Illustrations
Subject: Design Elements, Labels, Backgrounds.
Ratio: 1 EL for every 700 SL sales. (I've had 700 sales so far this year, and only one of them was EL. While I'm happy with my sales, I wish I had more ELs... But doesn't everyone?)

I'd love to see what you guys have. Thanks in advance for taking part in this! :)

doesn't this also depend on what site? ELs are different everywhere?

Does it? I'm personally not sure, since I've mostly been exclusive in iS. I would think that content would be the main factor though.

I sell a LOT more on SS, but they are mostly subs. there's a thread just recently dealing with the % of subs, singles and Others.

how many sales before an EL... across all sites? or just  the one?
for me iS would win that "race", even though SS has been a bigger earner overall.
