Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

Recommended Posts

Just surpassed my January 2017 total - which had been one of my worst months. 

So, better start to 2018.

Just got 4 sales in for a total of about 110 bucks.

At least I can take the missus out for dinner again.

Because apparently I shouldn't disclose full details of sales (no buyer mentioned)

With all due respect, it's really not a good idea to post specifics as regards license details alongside prices paid. In the long term it will only serve to act against us all. 

 

EDIT: Well done on the multiple sales though.

Really nice, but could you please remove those fees?

I for $114 (actually, 2 the same to the same buyer for $114 each, so I assume one will be refunded shortly).

Hey! F. E. - don't forget to remove the fees when you quote, too!  ;)

I'm not sure why I can't reproduce full details and how or why that would come and bite us all, but yeah...
Everyone telling me to remove all this information, and then fully quoting me, that's helping as well.

Arno, just to clarify: I don't think that anyone is concerned with you posting the details of the license, it's posting the prices alongside that can create problems. A low price quoted here with the license details only gives ammunition to prospective buyers, enabling lowering of prices even further. It's enough of a struggle already - they don't need any more help! 

 

As for fully quoting you; you'll notice that when I did so, I carefully removed the prices first - and raised that issue with Foreign Export, when he mistakenly quoted you in full. Hopefully, that will be corrected soon.

Hi Michael,

As a newbie I would love to see the images everyone sells, (I've only sold 2) but seems like most people don't show them.  Is that by choice or are there some "Forum Ground Rules" that prevent that?  Or maybe there's some button or link or whatever... that I have to double click or something.  Just curious.

If people don't show them, that's by choice (to avoid copycats, maybe), but there is an 'images sold in February' thread.

After a 3 month lull I made 3 sales on 2 images. $18, $9 and $9. These images are not exclusive to Alamy.

Best not to post low fees here. The title of the thread is "positive results".

It's getting to the point where a sale is a positive result regardless of how small the fee is.

How come you are continually policing this forum?

This public forum?

I'm not the only one to suggest that it's unhelpful to quote low fees. I had suggested that the person put his sales in the monthly thread but instead he quoted the amounts here.

Only about half-a-dozen posts here today I think, and nothing for half a day. Not a very good work rate for a policeman.

I believe it is best if fees are not recorded on any forum which is open to the public.
