  1. I have to agree with Chucke, it has become a snowball effect with more image suppliers stacking the shelves high and selling cheap, i remember the old days when a image had some value and photographers had a degree of control and business sense when it came to licensing their work, where is it all going?? I would rather have 7 sales for $1000.
  2. I think that just about everyone (including me) would prefer the fewer sales / higher fees model, but the fact is that everything in this super-saturated digital world is based on volume. Preserving the long-term value of individual images is becoming increasingly more difficult.
  3. It's all about the profit, if the 9 extra sales costs $101 more to produce, well you can guess which one I will take. If Alamy's your only game, you're in trouble.
  4. I had to do a on-site search to find "recently sold," but I'm glad i did, because the over-all image profile is much more varied than it was just a few years ago. There's a whole lot more than just landscapes and animals. I hate most of this newer stuff, but I'm happy to see the various ideas of "art" being on offer on FAA. Another surprise was to find that I've been paying $30 a year for my membership. (My fault of course for not tracking my automatic credit card charges.) I guess I'll put some more images up . . . but I will not be involving myself in that odious, totally insincere quid
  5. Would you rather have 16 sales for $800 or 7 sales for $700, in month's time. It is frustrating to see more sales only to net what you used to get with fewer sales. Maybe we should be just concerned with the bottom line? Not that we have much of a choice, either we go along with the game or we don't. I think, at this point, I would have the 16 sales for $800.
  6. Most sales ever in a month by number but not nearly by value. My average halved last year- on March's figures it's trying to halve again.
  7. 6 sales $500.00 gross. I hope it gets better for all of us!
  8. Four for a gross of $170.00, mostly low value. but something is always better than nothing! I still have a couple of sales yet to clear from January, so no March payout for me, grumble grumble! I'm off on holiday tomorrow and could do with the money!
  9. Bestseller for ages at $1540.02 gross. Total sales around 1870.00 mark and that was for 6 in total!! Good to see the big sales are still out there ( will get a refund now ) Normal sales are NOT very good ... are they !!??
  10. I have received a monthly check, always over $100 and usually over or close to $200 from FAA for close to two years. Before that, often I'd get a check every other month or so. 2013 was a very good year for me, sales have slowed in 2014. I think it is because of the number of images added to the site. Kind of like Alamy, the more contributors & images uploaded, the harder to get your images seen by the public.. That said, I still have sold 2 in the past week or so. My last check was smallish, less than $100, compared to the ones in 2013, but I should get a nicer one from these last sal
  11. Top 500 here too! The Alamy's email came along with 4 sales in one single day. Encouraging thing I must admit!
  12. I joined FAA sometime in 2010, and had very promising sales the first year, but sales have fallen off some since then for me. I have about twice as many images there now (600+) as I did in 2010, but FAA has many times more than then. I don't play the commenting game much and don't do social media, but sometimes enter some of the contests. If you look at "Recently Sold" (last link down the left side of the FAA home page), you'll see that the great majority of sales appear to be of "traditional art," or photos made into digital art. Many of the straight photos that sell are tarted up well b
  13. I joined RedBubble several years ago, really just to socialise with other snappers, so the occasional sales I make there are a bonus. Most of my product sales are done through Zazzle, although that can be quite time consuming.
  14. Just 3 sales for me, but one of them was $318 gross, my best sale ever, maybe things are not so bad after all !
  15. I have just over 300 images with FAA, have been there for almost 2 years now, with only 1 sale and that was a greeting card. (Ideal for scanning!) Have had better sales on RB, but not really worth the effort! Must admit that my work is not "arty" enough, and I am not into promoting on Facebook, Twitter etc. Also, I find it difficult to comment on some of the work shown, and refuse to praise some of the dreadful captures! That said, there is also some very good work on FA and RB.
  16. Good to hear some of you get sales - I haven't yet but I am aware that my stuff is not as well suited to the fine art market as some. What I would be interested in from those who do sell is how many views you get. I look at some contributors who get thousands of views for one image - is that the kind of level that's needed? I've had about 700 views in total and although they are beginning to increase lately, I doubt I'm getting enough exposure to sell much.
  17. Bit like my old school reports - could do better. Sales below par at 7, values below par at $60 per pic and zooms below par at 36. It can only get better I hope!! dov
  18. No sales through FAA yet but three through Artflakes, all of the same but not often photographed Berlin building.
  19. Not good, No Sales here! seems to be getting harder with low sales figures, thankfully in other photographic sectors the bills are being paid, ( not sure about stock anymore ).
  20. Congrats to all of you making sales with FAA! That's good to know something is happening here This year I joined FAA and still waiting for the first sale with about 200 files. Site is very friendly and I love option to set my own price. How does it look in A.flakes? Who decides about commission? Sheila, when I click on this small image under big one it gets me to site with: "The page you have requested can not be found." and link to FAA front page below. Today I got invitating email: "I’m pleased to extend an invitation to you to join TheArtOfBusinessCards.com. These are exciting t
  21. FAA definitely has rank, probably related to sales, on their default search. In addition, after getting some sales there on a fairly small portfolio, I made a conscientious effort to add many more images to my port there, but they all sank to the bottom not only of my port, but also any search they were in, whereas older images are generally mid-ranked.
  22. I made some sales on FAA last year, but this year only one so far. Other than a few single greetings cards, all my sales have been of US subjects; and looking at what sells there shows that it's mostly US subjects and localities or (many fewer) general subjects treated in an American-style way, especially Christian images with a 1950s/60s look. Well over 95% of the sales come from US or Canadian buyers. Looking at the prices, it's not surprising, especially when shipping to Europe is included. They were supposed to be announcing a partnership with a European printer in the New Year, but t
  23. I don't have much work on these fine art sites and I don't spend a lot of time with them but I have made some good sales on FAA including a 24x36 on plexi, which had a nice profit. I’ve been with Red Bubble since 2009 and never had a sale or inquirery. I have sold some small prints and postcards on “Art Flakes” out of Germany but no big profits yet. The best site "I think" for fine art is Saatchi out of the UK. I haven't sold anything thru them yet but they have promoted my work. Another important note about fine art sites online is key wording is much more lenient! There is no rank or ctr to
  24. Worst in a long time: 1 sale, $20.43 net. Low zooms too. Good number of zooms in Jan came to naught.
  25. Just one of the $180 textbook sales for me. Very poor month.
