Hooray! Celebration thread☺


Recommended Posts

OK so lets start a thread dedicated to just the good things, you know the BDE, BME, BWE, birth of a child, marriage etc anything good.

 

As long as it is a good happening post it here in this one thread and then all of the good things will be found in one thread instead of having them all over.

 

So hows that sound?

 

I think we have a winner.

Today I had a video getting downloaded twice, $80 a pop. As a result, I'm enjoying my best day ever. Thank you, buyer.

I just sold a single photo for $48.67, my highest sale yet! Not bad for a quick holiday snap.     https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/road-turning-right-green-hills-blue-1447

I finally crawled over the milestone.

okay... I'll chime in with the 'good news' part from my stats this past week

 

My two Father's Day images are both ranking high on the first page for 'father's day' and are selling pretty well. The pancake tie sold 10x yesterday and it's been a while since that happened (for me) Of course, as soon as the week is over, I won't have these 2 pulling in sales for me and I guess that's part of the bad news. ;)

The positive thing about being a new contributor, is that it can only go UP! :D

 

Most images sold in a day is 9 for me, although 6 were from the same buyer. I've done regular uploads since I joined, and I experience new files sold a lot in the first 2-4 days. Most of my new uploads sell atleast one time, some 2, and others even 3. I got nothing to compare it too, so I have idea whether this is good or not :P I upload only vectors and raster versions of those same vectors. The vectors seem to sell slightly better.

 

My "most popular" vector has sold 5 times (online since 2013.05.24), and I have a couple of others at 4 downloads (online since 2013-04-23).

 

Is this good? I have no idea :P

I am in exactly the same boat. Only one week left for this one on page one as well :(

I am probably done with these forums for a while

 

You posted this in the doom & gloom thread. Make up your mind.

 

It depends on the reader what it is. As always, there are different reactions to different things.

At this point there is usually the sound of a distant church bell, tolling across the slated rooftops as an ill wind creeps up on you from the river. You hear a moan from the window of a soot-blackened attic room and the night watchmen from Lambeth to Whitechapel with their carts, calling "Bring out your dead. Bring out your dead."

What good news!! I can't see why people wouldn't want a lovely pancake tie for lots of reasons, I feel the need for lemon and sugar right now!!

Nice one, Simon! ...but it looks like the sales may go down before the end of the week. I just did a search for Fathers Day and now all of a sudden, my tie image and your golf image are now on page 3 instead of high on page 1 like it was yesterday! What is that about???!!!

Marie you deserve it! It seems like the pancake photo is fairly new in your port so new images can surface to the top.

 

Gives me hope...

 

Thanks, Angela. Unfortunately, shortly after I posted this, I noticed the sales for those 2 had all but stopped. I checked the search again and suddenly (inexplicably...since they've been selling so well) the tie image had fallen to page 4 and I can't even find the bootie image in the popular search for 'fathers day'. So much for sales dying 'after' father's day =(
