  1. Unusual sales in term of pictures and uses. I sold a picture a while back of stock cars/banger racing, which was used to illustrate fertility/sperm crashing into each other!
  2. Just passed more than half of last year's total revenue on fewer than a third of last year's total sales - not sure what conclusions to draw from that
  3. Similar here, April BME, May i've had 4 sales one of which was for £1174!! Over the last 7 years i've been with Alamy May has been the worst month for me so I wasn't expecting great things. John.
  4. You're up early Paul!!! Hows's Salisbury? surprisingly, I've had 3 sales this month at Alamy. Can't believe it And just had a statement from elsewhere showing a very nice sale of just under $2K gross
  5. 1) Leading togs (by sales) you represent in each genre - i.e. your top 5 wildlife togs, top 5 food togs, etc, etc 2) New trends 3) what Lisa said above 4) Strange customer requirements you have been able to satisfy from the collection 5) a breakdown of the collection into specific areas (i.e. wildlife, food, lifestyle natural, garden, etc, etc) showing were you are strongly inventoried and were you would like to boost inventory
  6. Mediocre month so far, could be worse, but need to make some more sales in the last 10 days to get an average return.. I wonder if the UK election coverage has had anything to do with it ? Good to hear that high value deals (JMo) are still to be done, it's living in hope that keeps me going.......
  7. 10 best sales of the previous month with some background information / history how they came about perhaps?
  8. Better than 0, barely. Two sales so far this month. One is a nice panorama I spent hours worked on, licensed to Russian Federation for a paltry $14.51. On the other hand, they are at least PAYING for something. They could just send in "volunteer" paratroopers and take it... Like anything I can do to stop them
  9. I'm curious if anyone knows how Stockimo sales are going? I haven't seen anything about it in a while. I had one sale early on (out of 343 images I've uploaded so far), but nothing since.
  10. It's all here: http://discussion.alamy.com/index.php?/topic/3043-post-your-stockimo-sales-here/?p=48200
  11. Im uploading as I think it will do better in a few years. I think the demand will increase for these kinds of pictures. I have 370 images online and a grand total of zero sales
  12. I've had 13 searches by the Alamy reference since the beginning of the year. Some have been previously zoomed, most haven't - though a couple have been zoomed subsequently. 6 have turned into sales (some not reported yet) so far - and I'm hoping for more based on the activity round a further couple of images. So about a 50% chance of a sale from my (limited) figures. Like Ann I assume they are coming from lightboxes or picture researchers.
  13. Good on you Betty, I too have been adding a few images but no sales to speak of this month so far. The inconsistency drives me bananas. lol I'll quit boring you now and try to wipe the grimace off my face.
  14. Some misinformation above. RF and RM as terms are licence usage types, nothing to do with editorial/commercial. RF can be, and is, sold as editorial elsewhere. Alamy sets its own rules, and unreleased images (any part of a person, that info is correct) must be RM, and you must indicate 'no releases'. Then it's up to the buyer to make the call. It is true that you'd have to decide with your editorial images between RM here or RF/editorial elsewhere. Also editorial sales values here can be consderably lower than at certain micros, especially via the UK Newspaper scheme (three x $2.89
  15. You can not have from the same photo RM here and RF somewhere else. You have to choose. Anyway in general it would be not good idea to put the same editorial photo here and there. Editorial sells very good on Alamy. Putting a much cheaper license on Microstock will let you cut your own fingers. Yes editorial sells on Microstock but now on a way like commercial does there. A Microstock photo needs to sell a lot of times to have good profit. This only commercial photos with good concept are able to do in Micro and not editorial. The sales on editorial are more splitted there and are not made
  16. True Mirco! If the sale goes ahead it will almost equal the value of all my 30 sales so far this year! I've got my fingers, toes and eyes crossed just in case! John.
  17. John, I remind you your given sentences on other thread. See underlined "1091, so a 27% increase in images over the year but an 87% increase in sales. I'll probably sell less this year now saying that! John."
  18. Lol, they can claim that 'til hell freezes over, but we know differently. And I think it's probably a good thing. (Probably emphasized). The image count has increased from 6 million when I joined to what it is now. If QC hadn't tightened, how many more million would there be? We all have seen our sales decrease because our images have to compete with so many others. I do think the month waiting period for a failure is rather draconian. I think 2 weeks would serve just as well, and maybe encourage some of us to upload innovative, creative images. I paid a month in the Sin Bin for uploading a

  20. Just keep shooting and carry on! Then patterns don't really matter. BTY can Alamy point me to where they state how long it takes for sales to clear?

  22. As you say, several do indeed keep posting to those threads . . . and several 10s of thousands do not. AlbertSnapper gives one very good reason for Alamy not to do so. I'd add . . . why? Is there really a benefit for contributors, other than an opportunity to whinge or brag (neither particularily high on the list of strategies-to-get-ahead-in-the-stock-photography-world)? I for one am not convinced there is, certainly not beyond the benefits derived from looking at the "have you found" threads that seem very popular and which exist without any input from Alamy. That's not to say I think th
  23. That would let Alamy's competitors know how their (Alamy's) business here is performing. Don't let the competition know ! (even tho many of us post our own sales info).
  24. Have made 50% of my 2014 sales after just 4 months. Very happy. Have added around 1500 photos over the past 8 months. Up to nearly 4400.
