  1. Congrats to John and Peter, hope springs etc.... Can't complain too bitterly with 17 sales bringing in $364 gross, but lots of twopenny newspaper web deals. Disappointed at a $25 fee for a printed image used in two editions of a national paper. Sign of the times - a RF image that licensed for $400, bringing me $200, in 2009, sold for $73 in March giving me $29. It was of a lower resolution, but, relatively, a much bigger difference in the fee. Best sale $95 of an American subject adding weight to my impression that the US market is a good deal more buoyant than that in the UK, or
  2. Mine was exceptionally good too. 19 licenses, previous monthly best was 12. Total sales 2nd best ever at just over $1000 gross Well done Alamy! Hope it is the start of a trend....
  3. How was your March? I had my best month ever for sales (10) and value ($503 gross) I know this is small beer compared to some of you but i'm pleased i'm heading in the right direction! John.
  4. Still no email - I guess with sales down to 7 last month and zooms down to 38 I am not in the game!! But then it is 1st April!! dov
  5. Maybe they are including the huge number of sales we have in the pipeline that haven't been officially reported yet......
  6. I got another email too having had the first one last September. I had a much better Q4 2013 but never got an email then so perhaps there is no logic to it. 2014 has been disappointing thus far so I would find a few good sales and a bit more inclusion in Creative more motivating than a vague email.

  7. Top 500 here too. Would of course like more sales. Who wouldn't?
  8. I would be happy with increased views (down in the doldrums just now) and a few zooms. Allan
  9. I have also had about 4 sales from Alamy chasing up newspaper audits . Thanks Alamy very pleased keep up the good work... Also pleased to see reasonable prices on recent textbook slaes. Thanks.

  11. Indeed , quite annoying to have sales from 2008 and 2009 being put through this month at today's prices. These audited sales should be retrospectively priced - I do wish Alamy would grow a pair!!
  12. Ed - If we might presume that a sale is worth 10 zooms, then your news has completely trounced the rest by a factor of 25 to 4 RB
  13. I don't see how rank has much to do with zooms. Rank will impact whether your images are viewed or not. Once viewed, rank per se is out of the equation, so that zooms relate to the appeal and relevance of your image to the buyer. I would argue rank has quite a lot to do with zooms. If has as happened with me, an improvement in rank increases the number of views, then, as more of my images are being seen by potential buyers, I would expect to see an increase in the actual number of zooms I get, in the same proportion as the increase in the number of views (giving a CTR which remains
  14. Don't fret about sales or zooms. Our iPhone images are going to save us, right? Right???
  15. Robert, I have two images licensed this month - one is from the legalization of cannabis and the other is a "non-editorial" business use of another newsworthy event that happened about two years ago. I have 9 zooms (which is higher than usual for me) - two are of a cat over white, one is of burrowing owls, one is of a local museum (I was bored one day and took a walk), and the other 5 are from news events I've covered - a theater shooting, a beer festival, and a flood. I think variety is the key as 1/3 of my particular zooms are not news or editorial at all.
  16. Unfortunately there is a hole in this logic. Imprecise searches and multiple meanings of words and word combinations means that all contributors will have hits that are not relevant to the search. The higher your rank, the more of those false hits will appear on the earlier pages, negating any effect of more positive hits. For five years I muddled along with an average ranking and a CTR above, often significantly above, the average. Since my rank improved at the last re-rank my zooms have remained about the same but my views have rocketed and my CTR has plummeted. Alan
  17. Zooms? Good month. Lots of sales, best one £142 ($236) net. And some still to be reported. Hang on ... this is Alamy. Oh dear, not very good at all. I can see why people count zooms rather than sales. Soon it will be views. "I had two views today!" "Wow! Amazing! It's so good to hear that, I haven't had a view for several weeks now". "Congratulations! I can only dream of two views!" While elsewhere seems to be getting better, Alamy slowly gets worse. I know they don't like this fact publicised or brought to their attention, but with a monthly intake of around half a mill
  18. I got it for tabletop work Betty, it is a Hama Power 42 LED Light model number 00060187. I see Hama have it priced at £119 but it was reduced to £79 in the store. Had a lot of dust on it so I suggested as they have had it for a long time maybe they would want to get rid of it for £25. Wish I could charm the birds out of the trees, or at least some sales out of Alamy. Allan PS I tied to put a picture on here for you but failed. Try googling it.
  19. Views stable, Zooms down, Sales up OT, younger daughter got engaged this morning! - Ann
  20. I'm with you John. Having a very bad month - views down 30% - no zooms - no sales. Allan
  21. Don't know anything about a re-rank but have had plenty of zooms. Last sale was on March 20th. It ain't over yet. Hope springs eternal...
  22. Views are down. Zooms are up. Sales are going well (knock wood). Much better than I was doing at this time last year. I hope the momentum continues.
  23. More views and zooms than usual, in fact the highest number I have ever had. Sales as usual. Prices mediocre and at the lower end....
