Hi, 
My designs got approved approx. 3 weeks ago but I have not got a single download yet. Generally, how many days does it take, or if there is a certain criteria for that then please let me know? 
Also, it will be appreciated if you could guide me to create a better reach?

There is no particular waiting period for sales to commence; if you have uploaded the type of images that buyers are looking for, and you have added appropriate and useful keywords, your images will sell. My first sales occurred about 2 months after my first upload. I have no idea whether that is typical.

Don't expect to get rich soon. You will need probably thousands of assets in your portfolio to get a decent number of downloads at regular intervals.

It all depends on how commercially relevant & appealing your images are to current Stock buyers. 

 

In this early post-COVID environment, "people in surgical masks" are not in much demand as they were 6-12 months ago but images of "people in natural, social settings" are.  Likewise, if your keyword category is a fiercely competitive one such as sunsets/sunrises, clouds, flowers, plants and kittens, it's quite possible you will never sell anything.  Or if you do, it may take a long time.   For best results, submit lots of different images in diverse categories.  You may not sell a lot of images at first but you'll reach a wider audience.

Hello,

It can take a very long time or a few days. You need to have rather unique images, that aren't represented. Most themes these days are overrepresented!

People may not even have seen your image. If for example you add a beautiful picture of a flower to Adobe Stock, it will be with 20 million other wonderful pictures of flowers. People will look at maybe the first 10-100 pictures when they do a search. Searching is everything; make sure you set good subjects and keywords.

There is probably a preference showing new assets first...and bestsellers. Search engines can be very selective in advancing failure or success.
