  1. I too have had only a couple of sales recently and both for low $ and sales for the year are down on last year. No doubt the marketplace has changed but I am not about to give up. A thorough check of my sales here and at another library I use has shown me one area which does much better for me than the rest. I shall concentrate on that as regards submissions in future so maximising the use of my time both for shooting and submissions. That way my return for time invested should improve. Next April I too will opt out of NU and Personal if the gods allow it by then. I am still considering whether to delete images outside my core area and leave my whole content focussed - or perhaps assign them to a different pseudonym. Does anyone have an opinion on that?
  2. Well that's the end of a bad month (all bar a few hours) now to get out with the camera and on with uploading and make future months better!
  3. Whatever the cause this year started well for me but is turning into a disaster. Sales are currently half the number they should be based on last year, revenue down too and even zooms are at a desperate low 😭😭😭
  4. My experience is similar this year. CTR is above average, as it is mostly, but zooms to sales is slipping: 1/6/18 to date 1 : 3 1/1/19 to date 1 : 4.3 - I know there may be sales to come through but at the present rate of sales it will have little impact on these figures. Sales this month are desperate. I am beginning to feel I am wasting my time - at least with this library as sales through another library are holding up OK.
  5. Some very interesting comments here but saying that adds nothing to the pot. So: I used to think that I could top up my pension with stock sales from Alamy and a couple of other libraries. I got to like seeing my work in print and the little boost to my day when I got a sale. I have come to realise I could make many times the income from stacking shelves in a supermarket one day a week. DO NOT make this the day job or even the evening job, shoot what you like and if it's wet and you are bored send a few images to a stock library.
  6. There are a few of these but overall this year my average price is better than last, it's the number of sales that worries me. Not as high as they should be.
  7. I have not found it helpful; but perhaps I am not that kind of photographer.
  8. By number my sales are slightly down on last year but based on fees are one-third the whole of last year so it would seem little changed except for the huge number of extra pictures I put on last year. Taking new submissions into account my sales by number and fee should be double. 🙁
  9. I had high hope for 2019 after spending a lot of time last year doubling the number of images I have for sale. Has it worked? No. Same number of sales from January to 12th April as last year BUT (and this is the positive bit) the revenue is 30% higher. Long may it continue.
  10. The market traders war cry - "Pile 'em high and sell them cheap."
  11. Nice sale this week, first for ages 🙄https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?Imageid=AF6F8B87-2299-44E6-ACAD-2105E19F2795 $$$
  12. Yet another dreadful February for sales but lots of zooms so here's hoping.
  13. Another dreadful February - as always. Absolutely no sales again but at least my zooms have gone from the pits to well above average so here's to good sales the rest of the year. Nil desperandum - it's always darkest before the dawn etc.
  14. I will do the same. Recently Found two dubious uses of my images licenced for personal/presentation. Awaiting report/further info from Alamy.
