Nobody knows how the best match function works, but I believe DT looks at both acceptance rate, sales to uploads ratio for overall port, and of course prior sales of the image itself.

So if this is true, a new contributor gets a double-whammy against them because they have no prior sales of their overall port or of the individual image. Once sales begin, a positive feedback loop generates longer term success. Sales at DT do fluctuate quite a bit from month-to-month, but they are always #2 or #3 overall for me. In that regard, I consider them a consistent winner and a great agency to work with.

interesting, i guess i'll wait and see. i was hoping to do about 1/4 the volume of ss on dt. so far still nothing!

didn't you ask the same question about pond5 on a different post? Try to keep to one post on similar topics- you will get better responses...

isn't this why there are forums for each site?

i uploaded about 200 images to p5 - some of which sell very well at other sites (SS, FT, IS) - and they were all approved about a week ago.

so far, not a single sale. not one! is this normal? having a similar experience at DT.

i have a small portfolio of about 250 images that sells pretty well on SS and ok on FT. 400-500 sales per month, ELs and SODs and all that.

i uploaded about a large batch of images to dreamstime, had most approved, but haven't had a single sale (not one!) in about two weeks.

is this normal?

i have a few images that sell 5 or 6 times a day and have done so for years and they've never touched the best seller list that i've seen. i'm guessing it takes more like 30 or 40 downloads a day.
