Poor month for me.

4 sales for $55 gross $23 net (1 was a distributor sale) from 4,300 images on Alamy.

I got more net revenue from just 200 images I have on a MS site....

This is an interesting topic.  I was going to post my “best month ever” only to note that compared with some of the early posters my results were pretty average....  what is success?  The rule of thumb of one sale per month per thousand images I guess gives some sort of average, but revenue is actually more important.  I sold one photo yesterday for more than the combined value of the previous ten sales.  

 

I was was also thinking about an individual sales and total sales.  I would guess that there is a Pareto distribution with twenty percent of contributors making up eighty per cent of Alamy sales.  And, twenty percent of my portfolio makes up eighty percent of sales.  So, again, what is success?

Not a very successful month for me, no matter how you define it.  But I did get a whole whack of zooms in the last few days so I'm hoping this time next month will be better.

I had an average month with 24 sales for $382 gross

 

Jan $227  Feb $236  Mar $305 so April is my best month of the year.

 

There were no $$$ sales and my overall revenue is about a third down compared to this time last year.

 

24 sales from a portfolio of 2869 is amazing!

10 sales for $212 gross. Average sale price low this month, but number of sales OK.

Another month with a last-minute sale, so one for $6.49 gross. If it had been $$ I might have considered starting to upload again, but the trend is still downward.

Slow! Two sales for $106 gross though views and zooms improved a bit in the last week.

Good for numbers with 35 sales but average prices low to give a total of $667 gross.  Highest $75, lowest $3.76.  1.03 CTR with 75 zooms recorded.  Best month this year so far but the declining prices are increasingly evident.

Disappointing (again!). Just 4 sales for $$. Mind you, April is not historically a good month for me. Views, zooms, and CTR all down. Onwards and upwards....

Maybe this will cheer y'all up: Adobe creative test. (via dpreview, PetaPixel)

edit: OTOH these may not: f-stoppers; youtube. Both called The Truth About...

 

Thanks for sharing Wim - Great graphics and enjoyed the test  - I'm 'The Adventurer" 

 

Back on topic - month started off very slowly but ended up with 12 sales - all under $$$ some quite a bit under! - Not a great month, average for now but way under compared to a few years ago!

50% of my sales were under $10. And most of those were distributor sales, too.

If it hadn't been for 2 100+ sales, it would've been the worst month (of the last 12).

Views, Sales and zooms all average.

However the average price is now getting beyond the pale at just $12.73 gross. Now seriously considering if it is worthwhile staying exclusive to Alamy.

As others have said before these are micro prices without the micro volume.

9 sales for $191, so both below average.

 

Highest £89.

 

Seems like it's been a slow moth for nearly everyone.

11 for $172. Zooms and CTR crashed. Yesterday's late sale of $50 was subsequently refunded an hour or two later. Disappointingly it didn't reappear for any other value.

Worst month since July 2016 both in terms of numbers and revenue. Arghhhh!!

Last April, I had 25 sales. Divide this by 5 for this year.

Gross revenue down by 7.8% . :(
