- The boost in sales directly followed a big upload that I did over the holidays. I was barely uploading anything before then. So I really think that if we continue to upload consistently, we’ll make a whole lot more. If uploading 20 images per week is too much, start with a smaller goal. Maybe five images. Or three. Anything is better than nothing.
- Many of the photos I uploaded are images I had on my hard drive for at least six months that I decided to edit for stock and finally get up online. I imagine you have a lot of photos on your hard drive, too.
- Remember, $20 per week was Lise Gagne’s first goal, and now she’s the number one seller on iStock. She didn’t have any formal training when she started out. And we don’t need any, either.
