Hi all

I have just noticed that I have had my 500th sale, add them all up = $42,272, better than a poke in the eye with  sharp stick. I might celebrate with a cup of tea.

You've done twice as well as me with a quarter the number of pictures - well done!

Well done. That's a really good revenue total for 500 sales.

You should photograph the cup of tea for your 501st sale! :)

Congratulations, Mark. That is a good revenue amount. I imagine that being around in the "good old days" helped.

 

I hit 1000 sales (I started submitting in 2007) in January for about $73K (gross) at that point, but with over 3x as many images as you.

 

Walton on the Naze (I had to Google "naze") must be a hot destination. B)

 

P.S. Looks like you forgot to caption DYJGTK

Indeed, that was when $1500 sales were available

To be honest I have neglected Alamy for years but now I am semi retired I will be concentrating on it a bit more.
Mind you I said that a little while ago and then my mum died and I have been bogged down in Probate ever since

Sorry to hear about your mother.

 

I've found that going back and fixing up old captions, etc. isn't exactly a lot of fun but it can pay off.

 

I'm continually amazed out how many towns and villages with unusual (to me) names there are in the UK. Now I know what a "naze" is. Thanks.

Hiya

Yes, I have looked at some of my old images and the keywording could be much better as well.

Just up the road from me is the village of Beaumont-cum-Moze

Googled that as well. Sounds as if you live in a soggy part of the world, pretty though.

That's excellent. A very, very good number for 500. I can see some new contributors thinking this was the norm, though and begin uploading a lot of nonsense with the expectation of thousands.

 

Well done, again.

Good stuff. A nice income from a relatively small portfolio.

Hope you enjoyed the celebratory cup of tea !

Hiya, I knew you would :-)
I love it here, beach, backwaters, sea for canoeing and the wildlife is wonderful.

As mentioned above it includes the good old days when over £100 was the norm.

It also looks like you haven't uploaded anything new for a while. Just sitting back and collecting the fruits of your labor?

Some pics i've seen on your port are models doing something.

Is it something sells today?

Well done on your sales Mark, I venture down your way quite often as my Father-in law lives in Clacton on sea.
