For anyone that’s interested – I’m removing – actually I’ve removed the file downloads. It just didn’t pay off. I found that it was possible to make a small amount of money if the price was low enough – but it meant pushing and pushing and putting up advertisement posts over and over again in G+ land and the other web lands that I inhabit.
Just wasn’t worth the effort. The sale of one print, even a small one usually brought in much more than selling a bunch of full-sized images. People missed out on what I think was a great almost amazing deal – but the truth was that I could barely give it away.
So one day I might have a customer purchase 20 or 30 prints – and at the same time I couldn’t make a go of the file sales. So that’s another thing I’ve learned.
The next thing was that I usually license files to companies and even to small offices that want to redecorate and they are willing to pay much more than I could get by just offering the files. So say goodbye to a nobel idea.
