  1. 7 sales from 2000 which is good but gross just over $200 which is not so good.
  2. June 2013 19 images licensed Gross: $877.39 Net: $423.98 For the next two months, I'm planning on going a shooting and scanning binge. We'll see if it helps goose these sales.
  3. I know the importance of this area having contributed my thoughts in the past.But...do I really?? I have just spent several gleeful hours revising them after a helpful article in the latest Freelance News courtesy of Alamy. Maybe I AM doing it all horribly wrong and MAYBE (ha!) that is why my sales are so, well, not really! Has anyone got the inclination to give JNJ a very quick once over? If not, I do so understand. But if you do you'll have a new welsh friend.
  4. Hi Andrew, I'm interested to know if those Live News images were from June submissions and they were reported straight away or were they older ones just getting reported? I had two sales late in the month similar to losdemas so a slow and steady increase on the previous months No, one took a year to report and the other six months. Andrew
  5. Alamy's cut drops to 30% but the distributor gets 40%, leaving us 30%. I've had three such sales for about $15 net.

  7. My first two sales brought in $126.10 gross. Not in NU or UK newspaper scheme. Very pleased at a good start: now I've just got to keep it up!
  8. "Twas brillig and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the Wabe..." Thanks so much for taking the time to give the keywords the once over. Comments noted and acted on. So, pending further observations, off to continue research into other reasons why my sales are so cruddy (home made word). nj
  9. When I made my first sale! Nearly 12,000 images and several thousand sales later, We're still going strong! This was my first sale Country: Worldwide Usage: Non-Editorial Electronic and web uses Media: Web - editorial Industry sector: Non Profit/ Education Sub-Industry: School/College Placement: Secondary screen Image Size: up to 1/4 screen Start: 20 June 2003 End: 20 July 2003 $ 99.70 While that was a nice way to start, what really got my attention was my 5th sale a few weeks later Country: United States Usage: Consumer goods Media: Packaging - boxes and containers Industry sector: Cars/Com
  10. As has been repeated many times - anything can sell - but I do feel that a reality check is sometimes needed for people who are new to the stock industry - and that is the odds factor. You really have to add this little thought - Alamy has 36 MILLION images in its catalogue - the subject range is massive, if you have a few hundred, or even thousand images available it is rare indeed that you will be the only image covered by a search term. Have a look at what you are up against, and while I do not say that you should not add to oversubscribed subjects - just be aware of the odds that are
  11. yes correct, I clicked more sales but I have about double the images, so in real terms I'd say about the same or slightly less
  12. It really depends on how you calculate it. While some of us have reported an increase in sales as well as net income, many of us also have more images online than we did a year ago. The number of images I have online increased by approximately 1.59 during 2013 but my net incoming during the first six months of the this year only increased by 1.145 over last year. If we were to base this survey on $ per image I'm sure the figures would be quite different.
  13. If you don't mind some counting, you could use Track submissions (http://www.alamy.com/royalty-free-images-my-submissions.asp). ( -royalty-free-images ? - must be a very old part of the system ) wim Didn't think of that... So a quick calculation shows a 12% increase in images from Jun to Jun. So am I right in saying that I should expect a 12% increase in sales by number of images? Or is there a different calculation I should use?, maybe somehow factoring in the fact that the images were added gradually? Any statistics experts care to comment? Phil
  14. Numbers of sales over three times more this year than last. Yet the gross income is significantly less and the net more so.
  15. The value of my sales are significantly down, the volume is slightly down added to the change in commission its stating to just not be worth it. I am now seriously thinking of giving up Alamy altogether. My last sale which I had to inform Alamy about (i.e. not reported from last may) was a grand total of $9, what is the point ?
  16. I didn't vote as I've only really started working on my portfolio since January. Two sales this week have cheered me up a bit and given me the boost I needed to keep going. Stats are interesting but comparisons are hard due to the major changes to the site that have happened since last year.
  17. Poll is a good conversation starter & I voted, but Number of Sales seems rather out of context - Net Amount Earned? # of files?
  18. I don't want to vote on the basis of number of sales as the prices last year were so much better, so gross one third down.
  19. The problem with statistics is they are subject to interpretation. Take a look at the number of images licensed compared to the prior year. It doubled...along with the number of images online. One of those licenses was novel use (for $1). That is actually worse in that even though I doubled my collection, my sales only increased by 1.5 times. The positive is that if I exclude the novel use sale the average revenue per image downloaded has increased (from a gross sale perspective). My response on the poll was "about the same"...but I am leaning more towards worse because of all the fac
  20. almost anything can sell. Only with some photos can you possibly predict sales, such as if you are the first photographer to get photos of a newly built landmark building for example.
  21. What sells best? what people want to buy. No rhyme or reason, but if you can see through John Jones eyes, you can see what John Jones buys Looking through the thread of reported sales might give you some idea
