Please help me, what should i add on my portfolio to gain sales, i still dont have sales for 3 weeks, Ive uploaded about 20 photos.
How did you choose the photo subjects? Did you look for "hot" subjects with few stick photos, or did you upload pictures where there are already millions of competitors?
How did you research the keywords that you used?
As I said… thousands of thousands photos… https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock-contributors-discussions/stock-sales/m-p/12414928#M35691
Look here to see pictures that sell: https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/insights/best/contributors
Can you help me sir? where should i start to gain sales, can you tell what should i do.
So what you are saying is that you have not researched the market at all? I suggest you do so. Spend a few dozen hours seatching as a potential Adobe Stock customer. As well as uploading the world's best, technically perfect, photos, you need to focus on delivering the images that people are actually buying today. (Don't ask other people to share their money making strategy though!)
And I agree. Upload Dozens of technically perfect, market focussed pictures every day.
Upload thousands of pictures. Stock sales are slow and depending on the subject of your pictures, you will need to compete against ten thousand or more similar pictures.
Hmm. Cat pictures. Very nice cat, very nice pictures. But did you search Adobe Stock to see just how many cat pictures are there already? 2.5 million. How do you plan to make yours more attactive to buyers? In other words, this is about marketing skills as much as photography.
I wouldn't spend money to photograph cats, even if they are cute, but if you have cat pictures sitting around, you may as well upload them. You won't get rich, however. My cat picture sales are not overwhelming, but from time to time, I get a cent or two for my cat pictures. However, with 2.5 million cat pictures (I did not check this), you need effectively to have a lot of luck to get your picture shown to potential customers because that's the first hurdle.
If I am a buyer looking for a photo with the subject "cat in grass" there are approx 250,000 photos available. 3 of those are from you. The chances that yours will be picked is very slim so you need to increase the odds.
1. choose subjects that do not have many submitted photos.
2. load hundreds of photos.
3. make your photos stand out from the rest.
4. use good, no excellent, keywording and titles.
5. perform searches to see how your keywords are doing.
