IanDavidson posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceAs the year approaches its end, I thought I would undertake some statistical analysis of my sales for the year. · The single image that made most money was just under 5% of my total annual sales · Three out of my top four images, by value per image, were taken within a mile of my home · The most popular image (highest number sold of a single image) was 5% of the total number sold but only 1.4% of revenue · The top 31% of my images by value is equal to 80% of the total sales value · Average gross image value was $25 · The politician who gave me the highest number of sales is Ian Duncan-Smith followed by Gavin Williamson (this excludes the prime minister) although the politician that gave me the highest fee for a single image was the education secretary.
Hello: Any way I can measure traffic I generate to my photos from Twitter and other social media? Under measures we see how many views were generated from keywords but not views from links I send. Any way can track that? Thank you
I recall a forum thread a while back in which (besides carrying on the eternal debate about the pros and cons of RM and RF), it was said that Alamy prefers RF because this is increasingly what clients want. This has stayed at the back of my mind, and I thought it should be possible to test how true this is by counting the number of searches in Alamy Measures that specify RM and RF. AM appears not to provide any information other than the search terms on all-of-Alamy searches, so I went to my own most important pseudonym and looked up searches from 1st January to 30th June this year. I stopped counting after 100 pages of search results. Here are the results: Searches that specify RM or RF RM: 25 searches RF: 14 searches Distribution of RM and RF in pseudonym RM: 95% RF: 5%. The results should be treated with a lot of caution. First of all, number of searches that specify RM or RF is very small and more data might change the picture. Secondly, most of the images under this pseudonym are RM and this probably skews the results. I used only one pseudonym because my pseudonyms aren't subject-exclusive so a lot of searches show up in more than one. Thirdly, results are also likely to vary by subject matter. But if more forum members were willing to chip in with their own figures, we might build up a more general picture.
