Not necessarily. Especially since there is still a huge untapped buyer base. But you've got to get and retain buyers to keep growing. You can't have them trying it and then leaving for elsewhere.




Apparently, you can.


A massive portion of the huge, untapped buyer base will be coming to a market where iStock, increasingly, doesn't stand out from the crowd quite the way it used to in terms of overall image quality and, more importantly, price.


"Steauarosie" reiterates something I and others brought up in the Oct. 2011 sales thread: the market is saturated. Saturated with fantastic imagery, but saturated nonetheless.


I say this not only as a contributor, but also as a corporate buyer.

Yes!  apparently they can and apparently they are and have been doing for some time now. Oh well, we had a good run,  time to saddle up.


Jiihaaaaa!

seems that my question belongs into here (i dont think so, but the people with "theforce" do so...)


hi everyone,

 
i am still wondering why my images have no more sales since november. before i had hundreds a week!!! now i have maybe 10 a week.


i am a non exclusive member. could that be the problem?? please give me some help. my company will die very soon, if i couldn t figure out what the problem is!! (i switched all my future plans on building a great stock portfolio, instead of "traditional working", while investing shitloads of money since october...to be exactly: all my money!)


my sales on other sites are definately the same as every month. i spend some time to analyse that. so its not a seasonal, or istock-customer loss-issue.


 


thanks,


alex

There is an economic downturn, and it might be affecting every business I suppose.

Bad news for November and beyond....     Go ahead and delete since I said "and beyond"  All we can do is talk about it and we can't really even do that!!!

Okay. Deleted.
