Hi! I've been on Alamy for only three months with about 60 approved images. No sales yet and I'm wondering if I'm missing a step or doing something wrong. Is there any way to generate more sales? Or is it sheer volume and I just need to upload a lot more images? I'd appreciate any suggestions for selling some stuff! Thanks!
I know it's been done to death on the forums but I am amazed this feature hasn't been tweaked just a little. Now I have my act together properly it's nice that a whole batch, once it is QCed, goes on sale straight away using the keywords in the EXIF So when I get round to tweaking by marking supertags and adding locations - and crucially flagging those pictures with people / property would it be so hard to have a traffic light colour scheme to guide? Eg enough tags so on sale: Orange (as at present) Supertags: Yellow? People and Property Qs answered: Turqoise The magic numbers of tags I never achieve: Green as at present (so I am told) I have to admit recently I've just been answering the people / property questions where the answer is yes - leaving the rest as undecided as I can't see any gain from the extra effort for the "no" answers.

Libby w posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceHas anyone found that optimizing their images actually help? I have been trying to improve on the discoverability & hope that the green line progresses, sometimes yes sometimes no. I do have a lot in the "amber" zone so is it worth trying to help them or do they get found & sold without the extra work involved with images already posted previously? A fellow photographer did tell me recently that she sold a picture of a really weird sign that was only in "amber"!! However there were not many with that particular caption, so that may have helped her. Any imput you have on my questions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hi all, i'm a newbie in Alamy but have some skills about the concept of CTR. We all know it's basically a "# of Zooms / # of Views" kind of thing, right? Higher CTRs mean usually more Sales (not a math relationship btw). As all math ratios, the more Views we have the worst CTR we're gonna expect from our pictures. Views are the result of a combination of multiple Keywords and math says the more Keywords the more combinations, so # of Views. for i.e. i had Views for the search term "Miami" alone of pictures i did of a Miami beach gay party which is NOT what i wanted since "Miami" keyword alone DOES NOT full describe my picture, therefore i wrongly addressed a potential buyer to my party image. Someone who looked for "Miami" probably wanted some downtown Miami images or may be Miami skylines, not a private swimming pool party which could have been photographed everywhere. Then looking at this great tool which is "Your Images" or AoA i could easily come to the conclusion i should MINIMIZE the # of Views to increase the CTR and hopefully MAXIMIZE the # of Sales. So, am i right if i say it's better to use a minimal set of keywords to keep low the # of proper combinations? That should reduce consistently our # of Views preventing buyers from the bad thing also known as keyword spamming. What do you think and how do you keyword this way? Thx in advance I'm sorry English is not my mother language...
