  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. UK, media magazine, mid $$ Sales for 2021 have now surpassed my most "successful" year (2019), with sale revenue is about 10% higher.
  6. 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.
  7. While doing some research I discovered that when I click on on image in Safari and the same image in Firefox, the sales pages are different. A bit disappointing that for Rights Managed in Safari, the customer can`t make up their own mind about the terms of a license, but has to contact Alamy through a supplied phone number or email in a drop down window labelled Build a License to get an instant quote about volume pricing deals... No wonder sales are slow.
  8. 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

  10. 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
  11. Since mid 2020, I am only credited with sales on the last few days of the month. This seems odd. Sales are for various uses and entities, from websites, texts, kid's books, editorial and museums. Has this happened to anyone else?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. A customer buys an image licence for USD 100 through a distributor. Distributor's commission is 40% - minus USD 40. Left is USD 60. Alamy's commission is 60% - minus USD 36, Left is USD 24. JP Morgan Bank deducts USD 15 on each transfer to my bank in Europe. Left is USD 9. My bank takes USD 3 for each incoming transfer. Left is USD 6. The local tax office takes at least 30% - minus USD 2. Left is USD 4. This does not even cover the cost of Internet connection needed to transfer the images to Alamy.
  15. Just checked sale again and they've appeared as 2 new sales at double the amount!!! Will they all stick? 🤞
  16. My sales this year top last year by 146%. Value is only 77% of last year. Allan
  17. Just passed last year's number of sales...now if I can beat last year's revenue, that would be even better!
  18. 1/10/2021 EWJ94E 15IDM3662 geogphotos RM 13.13 -7.88 5.25 1/10/2021 R538AA DunlopilloLatexMattress RKive RM 12.49 -7.49 5.00 One involved climbing a mountain. The other didn't. Though climbing the mountain did make an extra 25 cents.
  19. Over half way into January, I am surprised no "Positive result 2021" thread yet. So I'll get it going. Two sales from the same subject at $135 each for post card. Happy New Year!
  20. I think i have a personal first for me, more licenses than zooms this month. Not complaining. Lowest CTR in years.
  21. Are the dollar amounts listed in the righthand Amount column of Sales History the amount that a contributor is being paid by Alamy, or is it the amount that a customer is paying to Alamy?
  22. Over the last couple of months mine has gone from 0.59 to 0.23 and no zooms getting worried
  23. 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
  24. Has anyone else noticed their measures information being much less than "normal" over the last 10 days or so? Since COVID my average daily views have been 1200-1400, and 8-12 zooms, but in the last 10 days or so both figures have been roughly half of those (and consequently CTR hasn't changed significantly) I originally wondered if it was due to August holidays, but it seems rather more significant than that. I wonder if Measures is partially broken? Kumar
  25. My last three sales over the period of last three days are all $2 with a rather wide usage, licence for a year from date of purchase, as shown below. Country: WorldwideUsage: Editorial, For editorial use on website and associated social mediaMedia: Website, app and social media Did you notice more rock bottom sales recently?
