To celebrate two of mine reaching 1000 views, I'd like to invite you to post your images that have reached 1000 views or more. If you are almost there, then post that image. Maybe we can get you there through this thread. Here are my two images:
I see that you've gotten over 4000 view on that image in just a few months. Wow! My stuff usually get a slow and steady viewing; nothing like that. Would you like to share your methods of achieving such a high number, Joseph?
That image is my first one that people see, I also have other versions available. I have what I think are powerful keywords that bring people in. Views do not equal sales. Keywords bring in people, but not necessarily buyers. I think nature, & wildlife are powerful keywords, but which one exactly is, I do not know.
Having been on FAA almost longer than anyone else (2007) when there were fewer than 4,000 members I am the Methuselah of the group. I have many images that have thousands of views. The one that perplexes me most is this one for almost 11,000 views. I think it is because I allowed a group to use this as part of their hunting group logo so it gets Google hits.
This one has 1845 at the moment and I get about 200 a week. I'm positive the viewers are not into the "art" and they are certainly not buyers. But at least there is an audience that I assume is enjoying this picture. Talk among yourselves.
The 'Animals On A Tube Train Subway Commute To Work' has reached the exact figure of 20000 today. 'Little Red Riding Hood With Nasty Wolf' is in second place with 5926. As mentioned in many previous discussions viewing figures and sales are unrelated, these images never having sold.
I agree. The numbers don't matter when it comes to sales. My two have not sold either and one of them is on the feature page. My Marilyn was originally just a practice for my portrait work. To see how close I could get to how I see her. It is just fun to see which ones are getting looked at a lot and I'm enjoying seeing them here. They are all great and worthy of being sold. :-)
This one received 6885 views. I didn't sell any prints of it but the original was used as the icon for "Gorilla Racks" that are sold in Sam's Club, Home Depot and other stores. The Yankee hat wasn't on his head when printed on the packages. I just put it there for youse guys.
This is the only image with 1057 views in my gallery, all other images have no more then 200-300 views.
I realize its because of Flickr, as its one of the most visited shots in my Flickr photostream, also 2 buyers at FAA found this piece on Flickr.
