Strange times. Tomorrow, I will lose the last zoom in my Alamy measures rolling month and, unless I get another zoom today, will then have nil zooms and CTR. Never had that except for the earliest days of being here. By way of contrast I have actually garnered more (small) sales this month than in the previous three. i suppose I should be grateful :unsure:

Yes, I also had a few days of 0 zooms, very strange. But a couple of decent sales this week, and finally a couple of zooms.

 

One of the sales was a distributor sale, but decent nonetheless. To Canada (!?)

OK, we are nearly three weeks in and it's no longer too soon to say that this is so far a very disappointing month.

The buyer might have wanted to pay in Canadian dollars because of the unfavourable (for us) exchange rate.

 

Definitely a weird month for zooms for me as well -- i.e. very few. However, I've already reached my monthly average of 11 sales.

What I find really dreadful this month is the average gross price I have received from my 10 sales so far this month. It only comes to $15-30

True, but not a lot of danger of being flooded out, even with the plug left in the basin.

It has been dry-ish for me for sales this month.

Weather wise....cold, wet and awful, in unsunny Greece !

The waters are flowing here as well. Number of sales is now well above my monthly average. Almost a flash flood. B)

Well, yes, a few sales have come through but the next five days are going to have to be pretty spectacular to get me up to a slightly disappointing month.

No sale since the first week of December which is disconcerting considering the number of zooms I have had in that same period was very high.  Looking at 2018, January was void of any sales with most sales occurring during the northern hemisphere spring.

The end-of-month 'surge', of UK newspaper on-line  and print usages being reported,  happens on the last two or three days...which this month should be the 29/30/31 of January......

Will watch this space in that case but not holding my breath.

Dont recall ever having a surge
 

 

That may be because a lot of us on here, and possibly you included, are not submitting images via the News channel.

 

I know I will not see a surge as I only submit to stock.
