This month saw me getting over the double of my best year in regards to the number of sales, so far.

With a small portfolio like mine, it is actually a very surprising year.

With news sales just in, I have just topped my total gross income for 2019 with 3 fewer sold images than last year. So, a decent increase on last year.

I have just reached the number of sales I made in 2019. The rather surprising thing to me is that I have made about $700 gross more than I made in 2019. So I'd better stop moaning about the wee sale amounts I get now and then. Thank you, Alamy!

I changed my strategy at the beginning of this year to only offering through Alamy UK (no distribution et al), exclusive on a 97% RM collection. I have about 100 RF images/illustrations as well. 

 

I have past my 2019 income by 20% already on a reduced sales volume of 30%. I am very happy with the RM prices Alamy has gotten me this year.

After nearly 16 years here, I've managed to get 5000 images in the library here !   (uploaded many more, but they were awful so deleted them !).

$157 direct sale (non-exclusive) just dropped in

That's encouraging to hear, but I can't help remembering when sales in the $150-$250 range were commonplace.

 

I'll be quiet now. 🤐

Sorry to inject a moan here, but I'm POSITIVE this is not good news:

My highest sale this year by far was one $150/60 sale in September.  I just got that refunded today.  So I'm at -$13 net for the month.  Arggh!

Thankfully I'm not exclusive to Alamy, otherwise I'd have to start paying them 😁😢

Yesterday's sales have taken me through the $$$$ barrier for the first time since April. That figure was certainly helped by someone putting their hand down the back of the sofa and discovering a number of older sales so it's very much an amalgamation figure but I'll still take it as a positive.

Already overtaken last years sales this week, which is a plus, net revenue going the other way same as allot of folks I think. 


The same for me, equaled 2019 for sales but $ need a bit of help but still time to do it.

Just had a lovely surprise - a UK Television sale popped in for $251. It was worth photographing my tatty old paperback books over the winter after all!

 

Well done.

 

....and there will be something in the future from DACS for TV use too !

Thanks. Yes, that's true - something to look forward to.

 I hope you made it home OK, and that you are feeling better.

Having some restful days at home now, still a little exhausted.

After a very slow start to the month, nine sales dropped in today, at quite a bit better than Newspaper rates.  Don't know the detail as yet, could be backlog, calendars, or something else......

Download the Excel .csv sales report and you'll know.
