How long did it take you to make 1000 sales?

Recommended Posts

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?

Hi Andy,

 

I cant yet answer to your question if you know what i mean but i cant resist to add that i am not surprised that you made it to 1000. You have amazingly processed photos with superb quality. You can directly see the care and effort in the photos. Love your port.

 

Congratulations.

I joined in November 2007, and made the thousandth sale last month, so 10 years and 8 months for me, more or less

Thanks Mirco. You are too kind. I don't think I deserve such praise. 🤔

Very good images indeed. I need some time to reach your sale figures.

 

Just one typo remark. You have several Crystal Palace at Beun Retiro Park, Madrid, Spain.  and It should be Buen Retiro

Great work. (photos I mean). And congratulations on passing 1000 sales.

 

I joined Alamy in November 2008, as you can see under my avatar, and am too ashamed of my sales record to put it up here.

Hope to see you at the Cambridge group meet-up in October. Look out for email coming in September.

Congrats Andre!  I joined in 2005 and it took me somewhere between 8 and 9 years to tick over 1000.  I am now just over 1800!

Thanks for spotting that. Much appreciated.

I joined in 2005 but only really started in 2006.  I got to 1000 sales in 2015, so nine years.  Of course this is affected by ramp-up time to get images up. 

I'm at 1441 sales now, and about 150 sales per year.  This rate has been steady since 2011 in spite adding images constantly.

I joined in June 2005 and uploaded a high proportion of my portfolio in the first few years. Sales fairly quickly rose to about 15 a month but have been in decline considerably over the last few years. It would take some effort to figure out when I crossed the 1000 sales mark, but its just over 1500 to-day.

Congratulations on hitting the 1000 mark. I started uploading eleven years ago this month, and with a little luck I should hit 1000 sales by the end of this year.

Only 192 sales since 2013 :( (I joined in 2011 but didn't start seriously uploading until 2013)

 

 

Other places 30,800 over the same period :D

 

I must be doing something wrong -_-

Congratulations! Extrapolating from my sales from this year, it will take 10 years, though I seem to be averaging more sales in recent months. If I can keep up the upload rate it might take less......

Thanks everyone for your responses.  Very interesting. It does take time to ramp up the numbers. In my first year I only had 2 sales.
