oopss....sorry to those that have voted....i just reset the statistics to make it tighter for those under 100, so that we all can have a better sense of where we are at.

Pls vote again.

been at LO since almost the beginning - 41 DLs

notice over on the 'pricing' thread that it takes 10,000 DLs on fotolia to be able to set your own pricing. hmmmm

I have 495 images on LO and 50 DL's.  I had an 'Image of the Moment' that brought in several of those DL's.  Hoping things pick up, I really like the site.

20 downloads on 275 images :)

I just a did a blog post on this: http://www.luckyoliver.com/blog/213/yet_another_nifty_graph

It's interesting to analyze trends- some people are having more success than others. The variables change from person to person. We're just starting our marketing, so hang with us over the next year as we grow.

Photoguy - to monitor what is selling, there are a couple of pages i visit daily

at LO, there's a random 25 images sold the previous day.

at SS there's a top 50 list for the past week - and it changes every day so i guess it is for the last 7 days.... it is great to watch things move in that list.

IS has one that is updated only once per week so i don't look at that too often.

maybe those will help?

Thanks Maunger, I'll take a look. I thought the LO sales were for months ago some some reason. Are you doing well at LO?

and   1 brand new  irrelevant odditorium post..

with 2 more pix just put in for review 10 minutes ago.

I like LO....   But I was dissappointed by today's thread that generated this poll. If the currect sales pace continues, I'm still 4 years and 5 months away from the opportunity to take advantage of the sideshow offer. With current sales pace, I'm only 4 years and 6 months away from my first payout....  Hopefully, the pace will pick up to match my sales rates elsewhere...

  since I'm not a designer nor buyer, I might as well use up my tokens and see if this sideshow thing will make a difference....  however,  I am a doubting thomas...    8) -tom

wait a second....we are going to pay lo now to sell our pictures that aint really moving that fast to begin with? and this is a good thing?
sure, ya got tokens now but what happens when they are gone, convert earnings into tokens???
maybe i missed something

as far as marketing to the buyers, that has been said since the beginning of the year.....

to me there isnt enough time in the day to continue to fumble around on the smaller sites

just my two cents.....

I believe this slideshow will NOT work at all

Just went to do a search on what this "great feature" is about
a search on dog as what bryan mention and return 2000+ images

a search on keywords like business, family, woman, love etc  and you get result of "a lot" of images

What this mean is even though you are in the "slideshow"
you are still competing with thousands of images.

So why shall we pay for this feature?

Please enlighten me

Hi Eco. Thanks for telling us.  :D

Can I know what kind of images you are selling from the downloads? I see people with > 1000 images but not the kind of downloads you have.

I am embarassed myself to tell how many downloads I got, its in the lower range definitely.

Hi Peiling

You can have a look at my LO portfolio with the link below.  I mainly specialize in African wildlife, nature landscapes and travel photography with the odd sport image.   I found that the downloads more or less cover the whole range of subjects in my portfolio. 

What I did found, however, is that my downloads are very sporadic.  I may not have a single download for days or weeks and then suddenly I have a lot of downloads within a day or two.  What this tells me is that the occasional buyer that are specifically looking for African wildlife images will download quite a number of images from my portfolio because there are not that many similar images available.  What is to my advantage is that my portfolio is in a way unique because it covers quite I diversity of wildlife subjects that were taken over many years, often in remote wilderness areas.  Since I live and work as an ecologist in South Africa I am fortunate to have opportunities for this type of photography that few people have.

Thanks, Eco.  Now we need to know who the lucky one with over 200 dlds is.  I'm jealous. 

I'm also jealous of your meerkats.  I was disappointed when I found out that they would not be on my way during my trip to Africa.

Regards,
Adelaide
