14) Can I send content based on festivities such as Christmas, Valentine’s day, Father’s day?
Yes, this is actually a great thing to keep in mind. Images of festivities and celebrations will increase your number of downloads. However, please only send and/or upload this kind of content in plenty of time, preferably a month before. Avoid uploading too close to the date, as you won’t receive as many downloads and consequently, earnings.
For example, it doesn’t sense to upload Christmas content in January as the date has already passed. However, it would be a good idea to upload Valentine’s day content in January as the number of downloads would increase as the date draws closer.
