It's a pity this website does not have a social media presence. I'm sure it would boost sales considerably. I think most NZ agencies simply use international stock libraries and don't even know this one exists.

Yep, sales have stalled - Some possible reasons:

1: Competition - Photo New Zealand, where NZ Professional Photographers put their library images, has dropped their prices to match mychillybin - and started pushing Royalty Free licencing more, as they realise Rights Managed is an expensive and unpopular licencing option. Professional photographers also have access to good talent, and People Pics are what sells best!
Also, the many international Royalty Free sites now have a lot of NZ content which is really cheap.

2: Simple maths - the more photographers mychillybin accepts, and the more images get uploaded onto the site - the smaller the slice of the earnings pie for everyone.

3: Quality - feedback from some Design/Advertising peers suggests they think there are too many below average images clogging up the mychillybin site. This means searching can become a chore because there are too many pages to click through to view.

Thoughts anyone?

It will be interesting to read Chillybin's operators view on all this, and what they might be able to do to increase it's sales.
