January is struggling, but it has taken me through $25,000 of sales since joining.

Just now one for $635

 

Distributed, but still very nice. Hopefully not refunded as it happened this month with one at $165 changed to $65 few weeks later.

Hi Abiyoyo,

Was the $635 for the Japan sale you've mentioned or a different one.

I too had an identical sale, in every way,  to your Japan one but only got $77 plus $25 for same photo but web use. It was a photo of Havana

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

 

That was for the Japan sale.

 

I was, happily, supprised how a "standard" image that normally I get mid $$, maximun, can reach that price. In any case your prices for a web use are not too bad for these times.

I love Japan 😍

 

Regards

As I say is one "standard" that are millions here. It is from Spain.

 

Paul, I do not know. Maybe, big ?, could be the Japanese distributor that asked much more money, and yours is for other distributor. O could be a mistake and, hopefully not, it will be refunded.

My zooms have picked up and my CTR is higher than normal. Also, my payout for February is good. Those would be positive results. But . . . as of today, the 27th of January, I still have just the one small sale.

Day and days and days to go for those sales to roll in! but better CTR figures are always encouraging. At least the days are stretching out a bit but I always want to see the back of Feb as well. More light less shadow.

Ed, I’m surprised you don’t have that happen more often, in spite of your great pics. It happens to me every so often, so I’m not shocked when it happens, just disappointed. Bet you get some by the last day of the month. 👀 I just looked into the future.

Third sale for the month dropped in this morning, putting my total sales since I started Alamy at exactly $10,000!  That's given me a mighty boost!

I can't quite believe it myself!  I must be doing something right, although 3 sales for the month is rubbish 😥

I'm guessing the fact that you are still a Live News contributor and make good sales through that route helps!

Absolutely.  If I was just shooting stock I don't know what that total would be.

OK, not in same realms as the veterans, but maybe something for other newcomers who feel dispirited by some of the gloom 

 

Two licences dropping in today, which makes it a total of 12 for the month of January, matching my actual total for all of 2019, my first year.  (yes the number was slightly helped by 5 puny CultureTripped, but still)

While you are in the future Betty could you also have a peep at mine? I could do with a few late ones.

Sorry. I’ve known Ed since the beginning, that’s why I can see his future. Maybe in a few years.....:D

No sales but so far in February my zooms exactly match my views giving me a CTR of 100, obviously it won’t last but at the minute I’m quite enjoying the comedy graph it’s given me in measures 🤣

I just surpassed 14,000 images 😀  that's the good news. But I'm still making fewer sales than others with much smaller collections, so I need to figure that out 😕
