How was your July?

Recommended Posts

13 licences totalling a disappointing $481.39 gross.

 

Zooms on the up currently with 62 over last month (several from my recent uploads), hopefully will translate into some good sales.

One refund left me with a total of 8 for $263 which is the best month this year for sales but not for revenue.

18 for $722.

## worst in 24 months. -38% of 2016 average.

$$ worst in 14 months. -48% of 2016 average.

edit: 7 distributors including the only one of $100+

My 2016 monthly average of distributors was 7.25.

My 2017 monthly average of distributors is 7.86.

- meaning the cliff that my sales have fallen off lies in Abingdon.

15 sales for a gross of $340.  Only one distributor sale so a reasonable return for the nett.  Excellent month for zooms with 54 recorded, my highest figure so far.  CTR of 1.32 so looking promising for the future.

Saved by the Newspapers during July. 5 sales for $100.32 gross with a couple of disappointing prices but still on target to overhaul last years record quantity. Views well up at 3,986 but only 12 zooms. CTR continues to decline!

not a great month and only one sale above $100

 

but 1st august - some three figure sales dropped in - which make august already a better month than july

After a really good June I expected a car-crash July.

Surprisingly, this didn't happen. 

Equalling the best month in terms of sales volume followed by 3rd best month in terms of revenue (in the last 12 months). Still, only one sale over $100, but not so many really tiny ones.

On a more positive note: I already had 5 August sales drop in for a little over $100.

A bit chuffed, I am.

Cracked "Good" zone last day of month, I did.

$7065 gross, it was.

(2) $250 gross, the biggest, they were.

Let's bloody beat 2016 overall gross with "Good" Aug-Sep-Oct-Nov-Dec, can we????!!!!

PS. am never sure if others are reporting gross or net because they don't delineate, do they...

Probably disgruntled contributor with zero sales for July.;)

 

Not me by the way.

18 for $642, better than recent average, possibly on track to match last year.  Some higher fees than of late too, so a modicum of encouragement.

 

Also sidled  past the 10,000 images mark, it has taken just a tad less than 10 years. Time wasted or a useful exercise? Gives me something to do in retirement, and a little extra cash, but not highly remunerative.

 

I'm impressed by the number of images you've added over the past couple of years, Bryan. All the work seems to be paying off even if you're not getting rich. Are you sure you're retired? I just seem to get lazier...

Despite my post-Fourth of July panic, where I had 0 zooms in about 10 days, things seem to have picked toward the end of the month. My CTR which was down to .19 mid month, is climbing back up, and July ended with slightly lower than average number of sales, but revenue was about half of what it was in June.

 

All in all, 9 sales for $329 gross.

Depressing!  It seems the more I upload, the less I sell. 

Total of 3 sales:

2 to Turkey via distributor = $2.34 each.

1 to the Guardian= $10.16.

 

pah!:(

Only two sales. The best one was actually one that sold last month and then was refunded and repurchased this month, on the same date and for the same price (go figure).  So really, only one new sale added this month, a product of my skyrocketing surge in zooms last month. Alas my zooms took a nosedive this month, I guess it all evens out in the end.

Thanks John.  When I started in this game I was fairly conservative over my choice of subject matter, but experience has taught me that some of the most unlikely images sell, and opened my eyes to new possibilities.  The market is much tougher now however, so many good people involved and so many photos! My current feeling is that Live News is the way to make money, but I am genuinely retired and getting up at the crack of dawn in the hope of capturing a sunrise, or attending local events in order to get some newsworthy shots is not for me.  Rather I carry the camera wherever I go, and if an opportunity arises, so be it. Many of my shots have been taken in mainland Europe, where we holiday each year. They don't sell very well, certainly not as well as my collection of UK based shots, or even my relatively small port of subjects from north America. I guess because Alamy does not have an active sales office in Europe, but 10,000 images is a drop in the ocean, and my results might not be representative.
