  1. There has been some speculation about that in a couple of other threads. However there have been some reports about sales this month. I had four, three of which were of definite US subject matter. Three or four has been my average for HP over time. There has been some speculation also that there are different editions of HP: UK and US, and that the current sales are for the UK version. However some have reported the fee for the UK version was $2 lower than the US version, and as far as I can see, the fees reported this month were the higher fees. While there have been different fees over time,
  2. I used to have a lot of sales with the Huffington Post (U.S), but have noticed in the last couple of weeks that they're hardly using any Alamy images at all. Did we lose that account? Just curious if anyone knows anything. Thanks!
  3. Ed, from my experience on using the alamy measures functionality, as well from another agency that relates keywords to sales, I think that almost all buyers use two or three keywords max, and in the simplest form possible. I don't know why this happens, but maybe poor keywording from the vast majority of contributors (using English as second language many time poorly, spam, etc.) led buyers not to overcomplicate the search terms with the danger of missing good images. For example, some photographers may only use the saint word, others only the st and others both. In this case I bet buyers
  4. Would the person who rated my previous comment with a negative note, care to comment what was so bad about it? What did you disagree with it? Or have I said a lie, was rude to anyone? Anything?... I'd really like to know as I provided a possible answer to the original poster, among possible others, on why his photos haven't sold, with solid facts. The competition is just too strong in numbers and price to have a sale guaranteed on this subject. Or is it just a personal vengeance for mentioning a reality some people don't like to be reminded of? That there thousands of cheaper or even f
  5. Its not a news pictures, so it'll be a regular stock sales to a newspaper somewhere between $30 and $80 I suspect, what I'm more interested in, is, if the article gets legitimately "reused" elsewhere, will I receive an additional payment?
  6. I've had images direct from the News-eed used in the sun. Appropriate news feed sales (3 figures) - sale as other news feed sales..
  7. None of those things are a problem. I'm wondering if anyone has sales of St. Peter's?
  8. Most of my Alamy HuffPo sales have been Vancouver images, so I guess they are still buying (?) images for the Canadian edition.
  9. That has to rank with my most unlikely stock sales of all time...since The Telegraph are the main sponsor of the Hay Festival and i was stood next to their own photographer covering this talk..... km
  10. As another Getty contributor I can also atest to this. Since the beginning of the year I have been working hard on getting stuff into the RM side of Getty and been suceeding. I've seen consistent sales every month from what I do. Hoping that this month is similar or better to the last ones. I was starting to get sales here on Alamy but that has dipped. Am I worried? Nope as I am taking on one of the things Jeff Greenberg said a while ago..."get out there and shoot something new as much as you" or words to that effect.
  11. Congratulations, A rare event nowadays as I understand it. Care to share what type of sales they were? Not asking for the images mind you, just interested in the type of use that attracts four figure sales. And I totally understand if you wish to keep even that information to yourself. We can but live in hope. Ken Ken Thanks. Outdoor Display – Billboard/Transit Ad Full Area UK

  13. Experiencing a 'downturn' not only in June but since the introduction of the three buttons. However, today two 4-figure $ sales were reported. Record breaking $ sales for me.
  14. Just a few more thoughts about Symbiostock and Alamy RM:- 1) Leo Blanchette, whose brainchild this is, is offering to set up a site for you:- http://www.microstockgroup.com/symbiostock-technical-support/symbiostock-site-setup-services-get-up-and-running-fast/msg323259/ 2) By setting up a Symbiostock site, you could bring lots of new buyers into Alamy. We have actually set up two Symbiostock sites, one linked and one not. The linked site is placing much higher in Google than the unlinked site, so it seems that linking is a good idea. 3) At present, it seems that Sym is ranking h
  15. Worst month for years for me, just 3 sold so far. I have had a few shots zoomed by their Alamy Ref so hopefully they may turn into sales. No Huffingtons either, usually I get 4-5 of them. Col
  16. Does anyone notice patterns throughout the month? NU sales usually appear around the second week; I notice sales to Japan tend to be at the end of the month. Any others you've noticed?
  17. Me, too. But I've had three reasonably good sales - one 3-figure sale.
  18. As always, when people say how good a month is, I'm having a bad time and when they complain about lack of sales, I seem to have a good month. First half of June is pretty good with a few 40-60s and three 3-figure sales. Can we have more threads complaining about bad sales please?
  19. Hi John , June has been slow for me too so far, but I am hopeful that some sales might turn up soon!
  20. I usually have a few sales by this time of the month, but I've had none at all so far in June. Is anyone else noticing a downturn?
  21. Maybe check your net rev; HuffPost just coming in. (4x so far) wim I thought we had lost the Huffpost contract. Do I have this wrong or is this old sales coming in? I have never seen sales older than 1 month been reported from HP. They are very accurate. Unlike most British newspapers, which "forget" to report quite a bit. Maybe there's a question for the CEO here. So I'm guessing the HP's are from last month or the current month. I'm unable to find any. (BD38E3 or AM5KNA or BCXCPE or CTJ4JM - if you want to have a go.) wim
  22. Maybe check your net rev; HuffPost just coming in. (4x so far) wim I thought we had lost the Huffpost contract. Do I have this wrong or is this old sales coming in?
  23. While keywording and metadata can always be improved upon, I wouldn't take this personally. I've had CTR's of almost zero and screens full of sales. Indeed, my zooms and sales are almost completely unrelated. I suggest you keep your nose to the grindstone and let the ups and downs work themselves out.
  24. My zooms are way down this month. Most of my work is around California and I think its down to the loss of the Huffington post. Anyone else in the same boat?
