I actually had a sale today that has saved me from a blank month so it does happen. I stand corrected (in a corner) 

The month isn’t over until it’s over 🤞

Well done.

Sadly my surge never came, still 5 hours left though, but first month of no sales for 3 years. (normally 5-10 per month)

Still up on last year so still smiling.

 

Roll on 2019 😁

 

Happy New year everyone 🥂

Still just the one, and I'd imagine that being NYE they'll less likely to be working so late.

Thankyou and sorry for being so negative of late. Gives me hope for the next year!

At the beginning of Dec, I thought there was no chance to match last year's total. But Dec has been surging, with 16 sales (best month of the year, four $$$, two $250+). That got me within spitting distance of last year's total (less than $200 shy). Total number of sales are 20% over last year. Per sale price went from $69 in 2017 to $54 in 2018, roughly 20% drop.

 

Happy New Year to all!

Damn - I had a refund today. Does that count as a surge?? :(

 

Luckily it wasn't a refund of a high value sale that popped in on 28th Dec which made it quite a good month in the end. :)

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

Not a sausage today, one low value distributor sale on the 28th.

 

Not a brilliant 2018 Alamywise, roll on 2019!

I should add that having joined a micro agency after the 60/40 thing there's an additional 35c coming my way at some point in the future (a subject probably best to avoid here!)

OK year for me sales-wise. I managed to tread water and maintain my 11+ sales per month average that I've had for the past few years.

 

However, revenue continues its slow but steady

                                                                                    downhill

                                                                                                      slide ...

I had a last (and 15th for the month) 2018 sale late yesterday (1st here in Oz) : a picture of a grave. I'm metaphorically putting 2018 to sleep. 

It has been my best year on Alamy, both in terms of licenses and $$$.

Well done Gen, your success does give one the incentive to shoot more variety and of course get the image numbers up..( great portfolio BTW )

Thank you so much William. I like your portfolio too. I am no big seller by any stretch of the imagination but I enjoy very much shooting what I like.

 

Have a successful 2019 with Alamy!
