The trick is to use it as a normal photo hosting site, rather than a 'get rich quick site' wherever you host your photos you normally have to promote them in some manner or other, just with ClickASnap you're getting real money as opposed to just likes and views

[quote=The $25 threshold seems to be really difficult to achieve only just over the $20 mark and now it seems to have ground to a halt and that's with the details of 236 subscribers, 9000 views, 4715 likes on 471 images[/quote]


Time for an update, Views 11.2K, 5789 likes on 528 images, 304 subscribers. $22.40
still only 1 sale sadly!

Tom how are the sales on the site going? Are you going to have a page that shows recent sales?

Regards

We have about 20-30 downloads a dayand maybe 4-5 sales a week. Getting sales though is very much down to your efforts just putting things up for sale is not likely to get you any sales

It is in our todo list but is a low priority

Don't give up ! For the record it took me over 18k to reach $25 and it's looking like 37/38 for the next, it's all down to a quick glance or staying 5 seconds.....I think
Also as it's been mentioned before CAS is not a get rich quick site, it's not the youtube of photo sites where monetization comes into play although the bottom has fallen out of that barrel for a lot of tubers, I did get a lot of photos that made explore on Flickr which earned me thousands upon thousands of views but that was it, but hey I got £17 for 18k views on here......oh and I spent it :)

The same really, a couple of sales a week. We’re hoping the revamped marketplace will increase this

Hi Tom

Are we going to have a better way to just add our own percentage to marketplace goods rather than the way its done now? If so any idea when this is likely to happen?

I would add loads more products if it was easier to do.

Regards

Whilst we can and will add a percentage markup system the overall product addition process can’t be made alot simpler as you have to have the crop process in the setup as no one photo is the same size as another unfortunately. I am
Open to suggestions however
