  1. No sales, no zooms, no views

    Since 1 week i'm having 0 for sales, zooms ...no views at all! I'm a bit worried... am i banned or did something wrong my ranking decreased a lot? Anyone having the same behaviour? It's the first time in about 3 yrs on Alamy something like that is happening. CTR is a bit above average
  2. Images sold in January

    The first of the year - and surprise, surprise, it's a 'Presentation or newsletter'.
  3. Stock or Love?

    Oh my goshhh! It's snowing hard in Florence (more on the mountains/hills around) and i'm strongly tempted to go out on Sat/Sun to grab awesome stock pics (and videos). It's not so common to have snow like this in our city and around. The "issue" is that i will change my house just tomorrow and this weekend will be full for me and my partner managing all dressed and stuff on the new home. We also have children and this is the first time they will sleep in the same house together (me and my partner are divorced from respectively wife/husband). I'm tempted to go shooting outside on the snow alone on sat/sunday but.... i don't wanna risk another divorce so... i'll go for "LOVE" instead of "STOCK" and stay home with my family And you?... have you ever been in this "hard" situation? or how will you behave if you had?
  4. Cleared sales

    I have sales that remain uncleared since c June 2018...do some customers have credit lines? I would have expected Alamy to demand payment upfront, especially when these are relatively small amounts?
  5. RF got more sales than RM these days?

    Hello dedicated photographers! This topic may have been questioned before long ago. But I need clearer answers based on your own experience, not theoretical one. Is it right RF photos are tend to get more sales than RM these days? Because I saw usual buyers are often from repeater companies, like The Sun, BBC, Guardian, and other media from British and Europe. This makes me assume ordinary buyers from another countries are prefer to buy RF than RM. What do you think? Thanks
  6. How was your November?

    Ten sales, $120 net. Also a refund from October rebought for $7.50 more net.
  7. The surge has begun....

    (Rubbing hands with glee) three sales dropped in today......hope it’s not done. Betty
  8. Hey everyone I was wondering when you guys got your first sale. Im new to this so i was wondering if anyine wanted to give me some insights. Thank you!
  9. Hi, Four small sales today pushed me over the big 1000 sales milestone on alamy. I joined Feb 2010, so it took me just under 8 years and 7 months to get there. How long did it take you? Andy
  10. When I read threads about how few zooms turn into sales, I’m confused. A big percent of my zooms turn into sales. Sometimes a certain month is less, but on the whole, zooms bode well for me. Of my last 12 sales, 10 were zoomed. Its harder to evaluate looking at the zooms showing on my page right now because many times the sales take awhile to show up. All I can do is look at my sales and notice the ones that were zoomed. For me, the statements I often read here about how few zooms translate into sales makes me scratch my head. Am I alone here? Betty
  11. How was your June?

    I see that some of this is being reported in the 'slow month' thread, but I think it deserves its own thread. So I'll start. I only just noticed that May was my lowest month for $$, for at least twelve months - but April was the highest! June has perked up again, 10 sales, c$120 net. Means that not counting last years' catch up of 22 back sales, I'm just over half last year's earnings, with fewer sales, over the first six months. I've resumed uploading at a 'reasonable' (?!) level over the last seven months; the sales were: 5xB, 1xC, 1XD, 2xF, 1xJ. It's surely a waiting game, but 2 of the Bs and the C were upgrades of previous sales. Thanks to the honest buyer.
  12. I was optimistic

    Last year i was optimistic that things turned around. I had 50 sales. But we are now half way thru 2018 and my sales are way way down and maybe no more for the year than in 2009. And yes, i keep uploading. I think that some of the other agencies have dropped their prices? Wondering if that is taking sales from alamy? I do know that AGE has dropped their prices a lot from this time last year.
  13. Mr

    Hi, I've been a contributor now for around 12 years but only started really 'going for it' about a year ago. I've gone from 2,000 images last year to 7,200 images now and have not really seen an increase in either the volume or frequency of sales. Can anybody put any science around this or am I just expecting too much from an already saturated marketplace? Am I shooting the right range of stuff? Does anybody have a similar story to this? Thanks, Steve ( Steve Hawkins Photography)
  14. Poor Discoverability

    Dear All, I am very new and gave only 3 photographs for sale.After 2 days I find that my images are on sale with Poor Discoverability! How do I increase or covert it to Good or Optimized? Would be grateful if I get the advice! Thanks in advance Best Abhijit
  15. Unlikely enough I am starting this topic. Usage: Newspaper Editorial print and digital use.
  16. No Photo Sales

    I can't seem to get any sales, how can I start to get sales?
  17. Sales and account activity

    I don't have many images here yet, but I have already made 2 sales, which was probably more due to luck than anything! As expected, since then I have not made any further sales as of yet. My question is: do sales get affected by how active your account is? In other words, do you have to keep adding images to get more exposure or are search results not affected by your account activity? Theoretically, if you uploaded "the best" image of a particular subject, would it continue selling or would it get relegated to the bottom of search results as time goes by? Thanks
  18. No Sales - Please help

    Hi Everyone Can anyone please take a look at my portfolio and just give me some idea where im going wrong. Ive been submitting now for 2 months and not had one single sale. I sell to other microstock sites and do ok, why I am not getting sales here. Is my portfolio just not good enough or is what I photograph more related to microstock and shall I stop wasting my time submitting here Thank you in advance - Steve
  19. Share your RM vs RF sales

    To better understand RM vs RF battle i'd like to share my 2018 sales: - $$$ RM sales: 35% of total year revenues - $$ RM sales: 60% - $ RM sales: 5% I just started to sell RF on Alamy so i dont't have any sales at the moment . What's yours?
  20. $400k threshold...

    That's a nice way to start the weekend Next target, half million..... km
  21. Following one of the Twitter advice on #Alamypicneeds this weekend i did some shots and sent by LiveNews. Got published in a few hours. Now is there a way to let buyers i followed their request and gain some sales ? Niche shots actually
  22. I read that the expected rate of return for a good, relevant portfolio to be around 1 US dollar per photo per year - regardless of the agency or license scheme. A portfolio of 1000 pictures should yield one thousands dollars. (Out of a thousand photos, one is lucky to sell 50 (5% of your portfolio) and it is likely that out of those 50, 10 (1% of your portfolio) will generate the bulk of the revenues. What do you think of this equation?
  23. I have been submitting RF images to Alamy and other agencies for past few months... Images that were sold on other agencies ..none of them did on Alamy.. Beginning to wonder if Clients check to see if the same image is available in other agencies for a lesser price. Anyone had such similar experience... I would like to think these are non subscription based clients. The one's who are on the subscription model, may not care if the same image is available elsewhere coz they have already paid a subscription fee and therefore price does not matter.
  24. Critcal Mass

    Here is a question that may have been asked before, but not finding it, I will risk asking it again. For contributors averaging 5 or more sales a week, what was the number of images you had uploaded before sales became steady? I see people with 5 or 6 thousand images who seem to be doing steady sales, but that many images would probably be on the low side. I'm taking into consideration that not all portfolios are equal, quantity aside, as some photographers will produce images that sell better than others, and some are just better photographers. Just trying to get some round numbers in my head as I whittle the hours away in Photoshop.
  25. Zooms and Sales

    From your personal experience on Alamy can you say what is the relationship of sales to zooms. To date I have 1 sale but it was never zoomed and many zooms that never made a sale. What do zooms actually tell us. Thankx
