very quiet


Recommended Posts

As I'm typing this I'm having to avoid the tumbleweed which is blowing past me.  That's how quiet it is.  Views and zooms are down, sales are non-existent.  However, I'm hoping for a few sales to drop in at the end of the month.  Whether that happens remains to be seen.

Things must be bad Colblimp as you used to tell me off ( politley) for being negative in the forums.

Oh, I didn't realised it came across as me telling you off.  Apologies, in no way did I mean it like that.  I was trying to be positive.  I feel really bad now... :(

Only kidding. It is hard thought to look to any positive future so I am with you 100% unless a miracle is around the corner. I just wish I could see the world through Pollyanna eyes.

Dead as the proverbial dodo, and has been since October. Still it renders all the discussion about 50% or 40% somewhat academic as 40% of nothing is still a big fat zero. The way things are at the moment I'd take 40% and roll a of the dice on a re-rank, just to give me a sniff of a sale of any kind.

Utterly diabolical.Worst month of the year with not a single sale. With the % drop it looks to be a depressing 2019. As it stands, The future is bleak.

 

We're doomed... doomed... I tell you ! Image result for we're doomed doomed i tell you

 

It's still early days yet, maybe a rash of sales is just around the corner.

But if you go exclusive you'll get to keep 50%. 

 

You don’t have to “go” exclusive, you get 50% on images you choose to  make exclusive as long as they are only available at Alamy ( not including private sales/prints)

I've just looked back and I had a couple of newspaper sales last year show on the 27 December, so fingers crossed there will be be some :)

Yes I had 22nd, 27th then 2nd Jan which would seem to indicate that they're only closed for the actual holiday dates.
