That’s fantastic! Do you do anything special about publicizing your site? Send out regular tweets or other methods to get the inbound traffic? Could I ask how many page views you get in a typical day? I get between 20 and 30 page views. Steve
Thanks Steve. I normally publish one photo per day to social media feeds (FB, Flickr, 500px etc.) but don’t think that helps with the sales. It brings traffic but not target customers. BTW, my traffic ranges from 20-50 visits per day.
Those 2 sales one is from google search and the other one is from getty. I pulled all my photos down from getty early this year as the sales power is dissapointing compared with micro stock. The buyer is referred by getty as he wants the same shot for different book but found my shot is not there.July 15, 2016 at 4:26 am #27250July 23, 2016 at 2:13 am #27319

Got multiple sales on my site today too. The buyer came from Fine Art America.
Great news! I followed in your footsteps and added a link in my bio on FAA to my stock site. Also did a blog post on that site about the ease of digital downloads of images and linked that back to one of my popular pictures.
You’ve got some great images!

From my half year of experience in operating my own site, all sales did not come from social media. Instead, they came from more specific sites with targeted interest such as shutterstock, FAA, Getty… others came from casual search in google. For those stock sites we cannot do anything but put our links hoping to to attract radom buyers but for google, we might can do something…
It is true that we have Symzio widget but what do you guys think to build a page to exchange links between our websites? I may not understand the details of SEO but with related links, that might help with page rank. Any thoughts?July 23, 2016 at 6:30 am #27325
I think we should all start doing this. I have been planning to add a page that would list other Symzio artists with specific links to their site. It is on my to do list. OK to add you?

Great George. Let’s do this!
Can you give me brief introduction of your sites such as what it is focus on, how many photos/vectors/videos? We might need to brainstorm the details.
I am thinking about not just a link but some introduction for each site so that people know which one he is looking for.
Let me open a new thread so that not to dilute the sale thread.July 23, 2016 at 6:52 am #27328
