I made a typo in my previous comment not=now


I have to say, I made a lot of mistakes when I see keywords and titles on my older images. I think it has definitely cost me sales on the agencies. The good thing about it is, that the titles are now so much better, it might actually benefit me now selling direct.

So if we all add about 20 more images each today we should break that barrier?  :)

That's only his opinion. Maybe he didn't spend enough time looking around. There are always going to be people criticizing, we might as well get used to it. I think your posting links to some of those excellent sites was the right thing to do. People will look and judge for themselves.

Besides, in marketing, negative publicity is just as good as positive publicity. It makes people look to see what everyone's talking about.  :)

He has a point - it isn't easy to find what you want (for now) - but it doesn't matter at this stage.
All that's important is the image database is growing and the theme is stable and evolving into a viable platform for selling images.
When the database is big enough the search / hub sites should take care of finding the right image quickly. It will be a different ball game when that happens.
I would guess 70% - 80% of the entire micro market comes from the top 1000 contributors - if 500 adopted the Theme things could change dramatically.

The point wasnt it not easy to find an image you want, but that all images are crap and that its hard to find a good one. But I am butting out of that thread, that guy is seriously nasty. Brrrr.

Sorry for taking this off topic.

ON: Why is the marketing tab in SYS lagging a few thousand images? 62,219 vs 64,570

Bully!!

Well, I've got another 1,000+ to add to the 450 or so already up on my site. And I'm planning a long photo trip later this year, which will add even more to the number and variety. Doin' what I can to help. :-)

Symbiostock rocks.

We missed the first goal. I say thats great. It just shows people are more interested in quality.

If we make it to 85,000 and the next 5k are super high quality, its an accomplishment :D still fun to watch though.

I think it will take awhile to get to 100K, since the avg # of images is 1000, and half the sites have about 400 or less, so we'll need another 20 - 40 sites added.  (not that quantity is anything to encourage for its own sake, it's just an easy # to follow)

There have been over 20,000 images added in the past month.

If we extrapolate, that means there will be about 100,000 images around the first or second week of September.

I am at around 400 right now but still have 3000 to add. Hope I manage to do 200 to 300 in August. My goal is to have 1000+ pics online by end of September.

I just started with a very basic site look and about 30 online images. Still testing, finetuning, and learning.
Planning to add 1,000 images this month.

Don't underestimate the adoption speed and growth potential. The Symbiostock growth will be steep and exponential.
10,000 images in last two weeks vs 20,000 images added last month vs 65,000 images in previous 5 months.
I can see 120,000 images by end of August, and 250,000 by year end.

[Edited on Aug 15] At 300 images now
