  1. Sales are happening once in a while in months. How can I increase it ? I categorized the photos into albums,but the most I got was just views.
  2. How about tiered pricing? Might it not make sense to allow photographers or Alamy staff to set pricing. I understand that supply and demand might make even a really nice photo of a very popular subject sell for very little. But what about subjects for which there is virtually no competition? For example, I'd be interested in hiring a plane and getting aerial shots above my region. But I could spend $500. Based on previous experience I often see my photos sell for just a few dollars each. Sometimes sales are for "real money" but not that often. Also some contributors have unique niches. As
  3. For the first time ever i've sold an image on a Sunday! John.
  4. Hi all, Not sure if this is helpful to anyone but I went through the 'images found for October 2015 thread'. I added all of the sales by image numbers starting A-F. Here are the results: A - 147 sales B - 193 sales (best by quite a margin) C - 159 sales D - 144 sales E - 125 sales F - 40 sales (unsurprising as current) 808 total images mentioned - 61.75% in the A-C range so we can extrapolate that older images do sell well. Note - I have only complied these from the thread entries where image is visible or the number has been added in the text description. I tried to
  5. These sale details have me scratching my head: Country: Germany Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 10,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/2 page Start: 01 September 2015 End: 01 September 2020 Duration: 1 month Can anyone try to explain why Start and End dates of 5 years becomes a duration of 1 month? This explanation from MS makes even less sense: "Customers we actively go after, contact us about specific needs or key customers with large spends and image requirements may negotiate on price; which always starts with our shop front pri
  6. I always assumed worldwide usage to include the UK. At least that's how I always presented evidence for book sales for my Payback 2014 claim. DACS however are no longer counting 'Worldwide' or 'Worldwide English Language' as evidence on the summary of sales I present them. Sales must indicate a book was published specifically in the UK. This is fine and rules is rules though confused why now and not previously.
  7. Any idea which UK newspaper would have yielded this sale? (Two sales actually but identical wording.) Country: United Kingdom Usage: Editorial Media: Newspaper - national Print run: up to 2 million Placement: Inside and online Image Size: 1/4 page Start: 01 June 2015 End: 02 June 2015 One use in a single editorial article used within the print and digital versions of a single publication. Digital usage includes archive rights for the lifetime of the article. There's no online evidence I can find with Google and Tineye reverse image searches and the wording doesn't correspond with any
  8. Hi, This is my first post here and my question refers to my initial submission to Alamy. I passed the approval process and I just finished keywording my 4 initial images. Is there a next step I need to to do place this photos for sale? Or does that happen automatically after I save all the keywords and all the information fields? Thanks Dom
  9. My sales on Alamy this year have been nought short of abysmal. So much so, that I am even considering joining the controversial UK Newspaper Scheme. I can't help but feel that here at Alamy, sales are far too dependent upon rank - which is highly reliant upon sales. Get into a negative spiral and you will never be found again. The BHZ game sees me 'ranked' higher than ever before, yet my CTR is trash. It seems that Alamy's random (?) 'tweaks' to their search algorithms mean that it is pointless making changes to keywords based upon search results, as that changes with time? I am in ag
  10. How was your May 2015? I had a record breaking month! Record number of sales - 13 Record highest sale - $1174 Record monthly revenue - $1685 Record 5 sales in a day Lowest $9.96 highest $1173.99 This was after a good month in April too. Long may it continue!! John.
  11. I'll start! How were sales for April? I had my best month ever with 11 sales (plus one found in the 'have you found....' thread) and best revenue as well! 11 sales for $530 gross. Highest $105, lowest $16, 1 distributor sale. All in all i'm quite pleased! John.
  12. Ridiculous sale through Italian sub agent. In October last year I found one of my images on the front page of a national Italian newspaper "La Stampa" which has a print run of over 300,000 copies. Finally, last week the sale was reported: Country: Italy Usage: Editorial Media: Magazine - print, digital and electronic Print run: up to 10,000 Placement: Inside Image Size: 1/4 page Start: 01 October 2014 End: 01 October 2019 Duration: 1 month Price $38.83 After Alamy and the agents cut, it left me with $11.65!!! A front page of a national newspaper for $11.65. I contacted Alamy telling th
  13. Although I'm not that new to Alamy, I'm new to the forum and new to receiving some money from stock sales. I have been sporadic with adding images as I wasn't sure if I had what I classed as newsworthy items, so wasn't sure how it all works and I hadn't seen or looked at the forum. I had three small sales in 2013 and two last year, the last one, which ended up being cancelled, but then bought again, so I received some money in January 2015, as my balance was finally over $75. The same day the money went in my account I had a new sale, (just below the limit) and I also discovered the f
  14. I would like to have the ability to search my Sales Summary by Alamy number, my number, or a keyword so I can call up a entire sales history of an individual image, or a set of images. For instance total sales of all my images of Alberta, so I can better plan my travel.
  15. Here's a new one on me. Four $15 sales, two yesterday, two today: Country: Illinois Usage: Personal Use Media: Non-commercial, one time, personal/home use Start: 13 December 2014 End: 13 December 2019 Originally News Feed images. I've never had sales post on a weekend, but I have a feeling these were credit card sales and the customer(s) is/are in the photos and must have stumbled across them. Or it's something I've not thought of. It was a polar plunge for charity. Luckily for them it was a rather mild winter day.
  16. Hi, I'm an occasional low-volume contributor. I think I understand Alamy Measures, but there seems to be an obvious omission. When I see that my photo came up in a search, how can I see the picture that actually sold by somebody else? Surely one of the best ways of improving my sales is to see what actually sells. Is there an option I haven't found yet that shows 'Alamy sales yesterday' or something? If not, why not? Thanks.
  17. A question, especially for those of you who contribute News regularly. Do you see sales through the News channel or does it tend to come later when those news images have moved into the Stock collection? Anyone making consistent news sales? I appreciate that sales may take many weeks to report so it may be difficult to tell except by the licence date and even then it may be a sale from the News Feed as the client will have it on their system, especially newspapers. I realise that everyone is different but I am starting to conscientously monitor my activity to geta sense of what part of
  18. I've been a contributing member since 2007, so I know falling prices have been reality for years now, but I was still surprised to see this 'sale' this morning... Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Travel guides -print and/or e-book Print run: Unlimited Placement: Front cover Image Size: 1 page Start: 01 January 2015 End: 01 January 2025 Reused on the spine $ 260.70 By Alamy's calculator, the value of that license should be $3100. 92% off? Ouch.
  19. Just received the Top 500 email again! I tweeted it. Thanks Alamy!! Kathy Kathy deWitt/Alamy: http://tinyurl.com/n9djvmr
  20. Hello! I have been a member for about a month and I am slowly uploading images on Alamy. I only have 59 on sale and a few others waiting to be keyworded, but the ones which are already on the website don't seem to be visible. I have 20 views and no zooms. I know this is quite early to ask, but am I doing something wrong? Should I choose other keywords for my images or it simply takes more time to have views and then sales?
  21. With 707 images available for sale and 17 sales for the whole of 2013 I'm wondering why such a drastic drop in sales for this year?
  22. This was prompted by a comment from Lynne yesterday in the 'How was your April thread' where she said "I also had the 55th sale of one image". I had a sale this morning taking my best seller to 9. What is your figure? John.
  23. How was your April? Mine was pretty good, second best month ever for sales (8 + 1 unreported) and best month ever for sales value ($519)! Lowest $32, highest $125, no distributor or newspaper schemes sales. John.
  24. I have a photo for sale on Alamy, that's not on any other stock sites. It's also been published on my blog, and is registered with the U.S. Copyright office. I recently found several cases of unauthorized use of the photo on several web sites recently, in addition to a presumably legitimate use where Alamy is credited. My questions: When images are licensed for use, are the buyers required to post credit to Alamy? My understanding is that sales can take weeks or months to show on our accounts--anyone know if Alamy can provide a more up to date record of sales on request? I've sent a mess
