  1. No North America sales yet for me this month. In fact, few sales of any kind. My $35 for six sales is a third of normal and other sites so far this month.
  2. UK, media magazine, mid $$ Sales for 2021 have now surpassed my most "successful" year (2019), with sale revenue is about 10% higher.
  3. I read this all the time, but it's not my experience at all. Instead, I find that many Alamy sales of food photos are to buyers without subscriptions to the big sites. I've also found that pretty much every person I meet who uses my photos from certain other sites does so because they're client or employer has the subscription already. On at least one occasion, a social media friend has asked me which of their subscriptions they should use if they want to work with my photography. Searches like that will lead to a big jump in rank and nice boost in revenue. The takeaway here is tha
  4. Several sales so far today. Low $$$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Television (editorial) ; Print run: Unlimited transmissions ; Placement: Use within body of show ; UK Mid $$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic ; Print run: up to 150,000 ; Placement: Inside ; Start: 22-October-2021 ; Duration: In perpetuity ; Additional Details: Print run -160,000 , UK
  5. If you have the same images on another site it may be that people will choose to buy at the cheapest price. Alamy sales are not frequent but usually higher price though we have been seeing some wee prices lately. This is a new and unhappy situation for us. Paulette
  6. Makes sense, my ratio of video sales to photo sales on other platforms is like 100:1, so they couldn't have been making much off it.
  7. Just checked sale again and they've appeared as 2 new sales at double the amount!!! Will they all stick? 🤞
  8. My sales this year top last year by 146%. Value is only 77% of last year. Allan
  9. Just passed last year's number of sales...now if I can beat last year's revenue, that would be even better!
  10. Hello I need your opinions about my portfolio, it's been 3 months but I couldn't make any sales. While I'm selling very well on other stock sites, I still don't have a single sale here :(. I need your suggestions. For now, I only shoot white background. https://www.alamy.com/search/imageresults.aspx?pl=1&plno=925651
  11. Michael V, Might not a share of sales with 'Worldwide' be US sales? Most of my sales for the past year say Worldwide, one says North America and none say USA.
  12. I do like the 'call to action' button in bright green on the individual images which proclaims 'download', which everyone assumes is free, then it takes you to the sales page where the image is almost free.
  13. Interesting. I haven't really noticed a drop. I'd say that about 40% of my sales remain US (Region) ones.
  14. I am looking at "Region". The last two months U.S. sales have been only 20-30% of the overall sales. It used to be a much larger portion.
  15. USA, National Geographic History magazine, Nov/Dec 2021 issue Just when I was asking about where all the U.S. sales have gone, this issue comes out with lots of Alamy photos. This may be a two part post. Pg. 8, The cover of Little Women book, 1869 edition, INTERFOTO (Alamy credit only) Pg. 10, Little Women movie poster, could be one of three contributors (Alamy credit only) Pg. 15, Katsura Imperial Villa, Kyoto, Japan, Alex Ramsay (Alamy credit only) Pgs 16 and 17, A 1572 engraving of The Lighthous
  16. Which column of your sales report are you looking at? If I look in the "Region" column, which I normally do, my US sales are holding up fine. However, if I check the "license details" column, most of those same sales show up as "Worldwide." I always assume that if the region is the US, then the image was licensed in the US.
  17. I have noticed, in the last couple of months, that I am seeing fewer and fewer U.S. sales coming into my account. Just to be clear, I am talking about U.S. based buyers not U.S. content. I scour though about a dozen U.S. publications each month, looking for Alamy image uses and I am finding fewer and fewer uses. Not sure of the reason why, could it be the competitive pricing from the micros or maybe buyers trying other sources? U.S. buyers tend to pay more than buyers based in other countries so I am seeing fewer higher value sales. I hope the new Alamy/PA marketing can help change this tr
  18. I think i have a personal first for me, more licenses than zooms this month. Not complaining. Lowest CTR in years.
  19. Over the last couple of months mine has gone from 0.59 to 0.23 and no zooms getting worried
  20. there must have been CTR data recovery overnight...? my typical CTR 0.70 to 0.75 but yesterday's was (68) zooms & 3.38 after 0.60 since Oct 1st, now Oct is 0.76
  21. The bright green is an eyeopener all right, at least all the buttons use the same shade, even the one down bottom right just now "Submit Reply"I'm not sure about the opening videos for a site which is predominantly selling still frames. For the uninitiated who don't know what stock photographs are all about, perhaps we should be happy for them to migrate to microstock. I've only got a couple of sales so far this month and they are not too exciting but at least they not in the pathetic $ area.
  22. Agree with Meanderingemu, the video is quite good, so long as lots of the right people get to see it. . And Alamy does need to increase/improve it's advertising given the competition. And I guess the green is "eyecatching" even if not necessarily in a good way... Frankly I feel to me it's acceptable so long as it achieves it's purpose - ie. increase sales. Let's just hope the search engine survives any changes intact. That's the much more important result of these changes for me. Kumar
  23. Well your definition of hobby is for sure more correct than mine, but what I mean is a hobby as in "not a primary job", meaning, that I wouldn't do it for a living but submitting content only occasionally, but at the same time I'd expect to get a correct repayment that can be realistic per image in the long run, otherwise it would be a deal breaker for me. I think anyway getting around 3-4 $ per download of a vector image is fair and can repay in the long run, if images get sold enough and if microstock prices don't start to become the norm. To repay an image with 3-4 $ per download I should s
  24. Looked at my sales report. No changes from yesterday,still low numbers except in the -$xx.xx column so don't like it
