Has anyone had any sales at these sites?  I haven't.

Nothing yet from naturallifestock. Was wondering the same thing, haven't see much posting about them.

I have over 80 picture on Natural Life Stock and not a sale yet, but I guess it takes time. There are some fabulous shots up there.

Curious if anyone has had a sale yet too?

I have about 200 but no sales.  Communication has dropped off and so has my uploading.  Thanks for others providing status -- I was wondering if I was alone in $0.

I'm only with NDR, and no sales as of yet.  I did notice today though that they have upgraded to 2.0 and it looks pretty good from what I can tell.  Funny thing is that I can't find the login link now!  Maybe it's temporarily dismantled. 

I decided not to go with NLS, because something didn't sit right with me when I toured the site and read the Nikon forum where it all started.  Didn't sound well planned.

RSI is just going to have to wait until I start more hearing about movement.  There just isn't anything special that sets them apart from the pack yet.

Karimala, it took me awhile to figure out how to log on to their upgraded site but if you just type in your username and then password, press enter, it should work.  I've already written to them and they said they'd add a logon button.

Thanks to everyone for letting me know I'm not alone in my 0 sales.

RSI even has a picture of me and my dad under editor's choice on the front page and it's been there for almost a month.  This has resulted in 54 views as of this morning.  Guess I was hoping for more... (greedy, aren't I?)

I tried that, but it just took me to another login page.  And I tried it in both Firefox and IE with the same results.  Sent an e-mail to support.

BTW...looking forward to meeting you in Vegas!  :-D

I look forward to meeting you, also, in Vegas, Karimala.  I was using Firefox and my method seemed to work on logging in.  Sorry you are still having problems...

Update on 6-19-07 - They now have a logon button!

We are making sales now at NaturalLifeStock.com, and are "on the list" for several magazines and book companies.  I have found that the competition is fierce, and am trying to make our site different to differentiate us from the others.  Still seeking our niche!

I appreciate your patience, submitters.  We have only been online four months now, so we are still just a baby site.  Can't run without learning to walk first.  The problem with new agencies is getting enough images to market something, while trying to market with a limited number of images compared to the larger agencies.  It is difficult to compete.  Even more difficult than I expected!  We now have about 8,300 images, and are growing.  As Stacy mentioned, we have some incredible images on our site now, and about 140 photographers. 

If submitters will send me an image or two now and then, I suspect that we will survive, since I am keeping the overhead down as much as possible.  We aren't going to disappear any time soon.  This is a tough venture, with lots of competition.  We are working on establishing a base in "environmental" images, of which there are a shortage in the industry.  Specialties!

I appreciate your support, and am open to talk to anyone that has questions.  Thanks for your patience!

Warm regards,
Digital Darrell

thanks for the update, Darrell.  Haven't heard from you in a while and it's great to hear how things are going.  T
