In terms of numbers Feb was my second best month ever with a total of 17. Unsure of revenue but a number a newspaper sales offset a few reasonable sales including one of $187 for a total of $427. If I could get this every month I'd be a happy man. :)

Dreadful.  Last year February was BME for income and sales, this year is the worst in living memory!

Dreadful, one of my worst months for a very long time. 3 licences for $215.46. The two largest were distributor sales. CTR fallen down a dark deep hole. Largest sale fee (my share) was on one of "those" sites and was over 50% more than the best I got from Alamy.

Good month in terms of volume (16 sales) but boy oh boy prices!! Almost all around the $10 mark.

Also half the number of zooms in January.

2 Sales,  Average monthly revenue.

 

Views, CTR and Zooms were way down until the last week of the month. Zooms spiked up to 40% above average, Views up 25% and CTR back to normal -  0.63 in my main pseudo (my name) and to 1.61 in an actual pseudonym that I would delete except its CTR is often above 1.0  I hate seeing the pseudonym in travel book credits under my photos, not that anyone except we photographers read those credits pages. (When I was editor of my college paper we did a spoof paper for April Fool's Day and my brilliant photo editor credited about half the photos thusly: "Only photographer's mothers read photo credits.") That was in 1978. Some things don't change B)

7 for 484 gross

A sale on each of the last four days of the month made this my BME (just) in terms of gross $. Net not as good owing to 40% and one distribution sale.

Another abysmal month. Just 1 sale for 7.99 nett. This following on from Januarys spectacular result of 5 sales for 9.95 nett.

 

I have over 6000 images on Alamy now. Over the last 12 months, my port has gone from 4800 to 6300 whereas my port at the microstock site has gone from 1100 to 2400. 

 

My total sales on the microstock are only 25% less than my Alamy sales despite the huge difference in port size.

 

Over 3000 of my Alamy port is exclusive but not marked as such and I have changed all of them from RM to RF in readiness for loading to microstock sites. It seems the sensible thing to do until such time sales at Alamy improve ( I won't be holding my breath)

Worst month for a long time. A mere 2 sales for a grand total of $25.84 gross. Views and zooms on a long term downward trend. Good to see that others are doing a lot better though as it means that the market is not yet dead and things may get better,
