Mmm, yeah, what happened on the 15th?! I had 4 sales up to then (1 was refunded)....and nothing since. Lots of views and decent zooms, though. 

 

EDIT: I usually find if I keep on reloading 'Net Revenue' it encourages sales! :lol:

 

After reading this I tried it and there was a sale!

 

But it was the lowest yet on Alamy. $0.68 net!

Same here, but also 2 reasonable ones.

Getting the two reasonable ones first works best! Softens the blow :)

 

At least the sales are coming......

Got one of those. It has just shown up in the sales overview. It's not for a Third-World Country, it's been sold in Italy!

Just had my second sale of the month and it feels mighty fine!  The pic in question was zoomed a couple of weeks ago.  Hopefully more of my zooms will turn into sales before the end of the month!

For the life of me I cannot find anywhere on the site where I can see these "zooms" it's a mystery. Where do I see them please ?

In 'My Dashboard' click on 'Your Images' and you'll see the column for Zooms.

Since this is becoming my slowest month ever, should i consider Sep/Oct like worst months (3 months to report a sale) or the fact buyers are not interested to my Spring images (2/3 months ahead) ?

Is this the logic to analyze a specific month performance?

Sorry, I cannot see any "your images" option or any zoom column.

Scroll down to "Alamy measures" and click on the down arrow.

Zooms have been creeping back up after severe drop in December. Sales not good - need big end of month surge to recover this month.

Sales still relatively few and far between, a poor month, but a $150 deal brought some cheer the other day. :)

Good month volume-wise so far but low prices. Decent one popped up today, though.

 

Just realized, only five days to go... :mellow:

3 or 4 sales and all in the space of a couple of days. These were news images and won't be reported just yet but I know they'll turn up soon.

Not by much though. How about every time you feel its time to have a moan on the forum, taking ten photos instead.

Two $70 sales popped in today, yes on a Sunday. Sounds like Alamy are playing catchup.

 

Still need more to make it an average month.

Why am I being singled out here when I am justtified in my complaint ? Sorry, I thougt the topic was “Slow Month?” 

 

And for your interest, I shot a lot more than ten images yesterday to edit this week.
