2019 compared to 2018

 

2019:

Total sales: 249

Gross earnings: $5616

Net earnings: $2637

 

2018:

Total sales: 224

Gross earnings: $6313

Net earnings: $3077

 

Total sales increased by 11%

Gross earnings decreased by 11%

Net earnings decreased by 14.3%

(a strong November and December prevented an even worse outcome)

 

My total net earnings are now back at the level they were in 2012.

Which begs the question, how many more images have you uploaded since then?

Good question.  It doesn't matter.

For me, 2019 income was my lowest since 2007 when I had about 1000 images up.  Even then I made 30% more than last year.

Adding 11,000 images hasn't made much of an impact.

858 sales in 2019 - thats 2 more than last year, and 10 less than 2016 which was my best ever year for both numbers and gross income

 

Gross income 2019 was $23,817, which is 10% less than 2018 and 14% less than 2016

 

Average income, gross per sale was $27.75

 

Best sale of the year was $300 gross, at 50%

 

CTR average for the year was 0.66; 

 

Position on the BHZ scale for those who use it remains near the top of p4, 120images/page

 

Out of interest my annual gross income this year has gone back down to approximately my income in 2013 when I had exactly half the number of images for sale, and sold pretty much half the number of images I sold in 2019

 

Happy New Year everybody!

84 sales for $2186 gross. Slightly down in revenue from 2018 but that's the 6th year that my gross sales have been just over $2k.

 

I increased my number of images by 21% in the year. I had intended to do more, but a fall in my sales from August onwards, combined with time being spent on a couple of more lucrative, non-photography income streams, led to a reduction in my submissions in the last 4 months of the year.   

 

Happy New Year!

2019 was my third full year of submitting images. 

 

Number of licenses were as follows: 

 

2017: 9

2018: 25

2019: 44

 

and gross revenue was:

 

2017: $292 

2018: $583

2019: $1,620

 

I've grown my port steadily over the past three years. I've had some very attractive license fees in 2019 (but at the same time also very low ones as I'm opted in all the schemes).

Ended 2019 with 101 sales, nearly double the amount of sales reported in 2018.  Added ~1100 new images in 2019, but only 6 of those new images resulted in a sale, most of the licenses were from photos taken and added in 2018.   101 sales, with one sizable $$$$ license.

Considering only been seriously contributing for just over a year, I am quite pleased.  However, now my graphs are pointing downwards but will not get too disheartened - she says😉

The way the graph just descends to the bottom at the beginning of the year always looks dire. Looks are deceiving.

2019 was my first full calendar year with Alamy having only joined in the summer of 2018, so was surprised and pleased to get my first sale in April. By the end of the year I'd had 12 sales for $419 gross (an average of about $35 per sale), so can't complain - yet! Come the end of 2020.... well we'll see what happens.

The graphs illustrate my Gross & Net $$$ and QTY sold since I joined Alamy in 2004.  

Unfortunately 2019 was a major step back in terms of Net Sales.

Same number of sales than last year.

For a bit less money than last year.

 

But my portfolio on Alamy is so small, that my numbers don't really mean any thing...

Yet...
