  1. I think your people images are the most saleable, but you need thousands of pictures to compete. With your flowers you sometimes just put Rose, Clematis or Fuchsia without knowing the variety, which will reduce the chance of a sale.
  2. Average month with 17 sales for $300 gross. No $$$ sales, which is my theme for this year and puts me behind on last years revenue.
  3. I had an average month with 24 sales for $382 gross Jan $227 Feb $236 Mar $305 so April is my best month of the year. There were no $$$ sales and my overall revenue is about a third down compared to this time last year.
  4. Thanks Bryan and everyone who has contributed to the found images, it has allowed me to chase uses which the newspapers didn't report/pay.
  5. You've got a good portfolio. I imagine it is just a matter of time until you get sales. One thing to watch is having irrelevant key words, which will reduce your rank. I'd put hot air balloons as one supertag, Alamy list the key words alphabetically so you may have already done it.
  6. Brilliant portfolio showing real people doing things. The only criticism is too many shots from the same day ie: nurses protest and rally cars.
  7. Third poor month in a row with 13 for $236 gross I used to regard 250 - 500 as average and over $500 as good, but it looks like I will have to revise the targets lower this year.
  8. A poor month with 11 sales for $227 gross. No $$$ sales which is becoming the norm for my portfolio.
  9. December was my worst month ever with 7 sales and 3 refunds earning $24 gross. The year saw my revenue continue the downward trend. 2016 224 sales $5,413 gross 2017 225 sales $4,859 gross 2018 217 sales $4,626 gross
  10. My rough figures are 2900 images & gross revenue 4800 USD per year Using an exchange rate of 1.3 USD/GBP then 50% commission gives 64p per image & 40% commission gives 51p. I went to a mistletoe auction at Tenbury Wells and uploaded six photos of the event which should bring £3 a year. I was there for two hours, plus an hour to sort the photos, so £1 per hour before the cost of running a car.
  11. I just had a TV use $$$ to lift me out of the November doldrums, so it is too early to write the month off.
  12. 21 sales for $440 gross. One $$$ if I round up a sale which was a few cents short.
  13. I decided my portfolio needs more flower photos and I like this one of a bee feeding on a flower.
