Hello, I am keen to submit illustrations and vectors. However, I don't want to mix my photo content with illustrations / vectors, as I feel the search objectives are different, plus the browsing experience is definitely better for the end user if the batreu of the content is separated. 

 

But, is it allowed? Any advice on how to differentiate my portfolios?

 

Thank you!

I doubt that this is allowed, and I would not do that, as your notoriety popularity increases with the number of sales. You are welcome to ask this question to contributor support and to update this thread when you have an answer. Need help? (Stock Contributor Support) 

 

As this is a contributor related question, I will move it to the contributor forum.

Even if it was allowed, you would be competing with yourself for sales.  So there is nothing to be gained from having multiple accounts.

 

Remember,  keywords are what customers search for.  Focus on good keywords and descriptions.

If customers want to filter results to just vectors, they can.  You don't need to do that for them.

To clarify a word  here, notoriety, has a negative connotation  - to be well known for something bad.

A better word would be popularity. 

The OP's popularity will increase with the number of sales.

So, of course it would not be a good idea to have two different portfolios.

I see. That's when writing as a non-native speaker. In my language it means indeed more than popularity. And "popular" may have a negative connotation! How languages can change perceptions!

I don't believe there is any benefit to having multiple accounts. I don't think that Buyers usually search by Contributor, but rather by asset type and subject keywords so they'll never know, or be inconvenienced, by the fact that you have multiple asset types in your account.
