/I know sales are the final answer and that is what puts money in the pocket book but if they don't see your image they won't buy it. These two images just have me a bit stumped. They have very few views compared to other photos in my portforlio that are kind of along the same lines. Also every single picture I have usually has a couple views on it by the end of the week. These two had almost no views on them at all till almost 2 weeks out I believe. Actually didn't manage to get any views untill I linked them to one of the other photos I have.
Even now the amount of views I get sucks from them.
Both of the above images have about 18 views
vs images like this
has something like 90 views
which honestly I don't think is that great of an image though the sales reflect that so far. It also has quite a few more views though.
this image also has quite a bit more
and this one has about 120 views so far
All are about as old as each other. Anyone have any ideas?

two weeks is a short period of time to draw proper conclusion. They will likely not get many views in a lifetime because they are simple portraits. I have some of those. Have your models engage in some activity.

Yeah I understand that the time has been short. I've just never seen this type of lack of activity to where the first two images had not one view for the first week or two. Every image I have had usually has 1 to 2 views in the first day when they go live. These didn't have one till after the first week. That is what has thrown me off. Even with other images in my own portfolio like the second two I've posted, they seem to be lagging.
I'm not expecting miracle sales or anything it's just to me weird that I've never seen an image any image of mine so far start off so slow with views as these first two images.

Unless you're getting paid by views, I wouldn't worry about it. As slobo said, they are all simple portraits, and are pretty tightly cropped, so enjoy the high views on the two as the anomaly.
