Joined Alamy 2 years ago, according to AIM just passed 3000 images and 39 sales today. I live in a very small Irish village, 1 pub, 1 shop and about 60 people. Nearest town (a small one 7k away) Nearest city 90k away, so happy with that effort so far.

This month, even before the end of the month, I have had the best revenue month in the last five years.... Roughly three or four times my normal average. 

 

several $$$ sales, one of an NHS protest I must have taken two or three years ago and another old photo used by a television company.  One of the best sales was a locally taken “car in a sink hole” local works as per a Welsh photographer who’s name has slipped my mind (1984). 
 

I strongly suspect that it’s all rapidly downhill from here....

 

Interestingly I have been unable to find any of the high value sales and only one of the low value so I have to guess where they appeared.

I'm not convinced that "post positive results" is the best title for this thread at the moment

Not doing as well as Ian above, but after the worst two months for years (Jan and Feb) March is a lot better - below average but OK, and still a few days left.

I can't match that 'best', but getting close. Today saw me climb into four figures gross.

Sold today,

$260.

Don't know where my brain is today. $120, not $260

I had an unexpected tsunami of nine sales show up today, ranging from $$ to $$$. This is the most I've seen in a single day for a long time, so the world has not come to end quite yet. Thanks, Alamy.  😃

Just had a $131 sale of a butterfly (not exclusive though).

 

Highest figure for a long time. (12th March 2018 actually!)

This is so encouraging! Congrats! I think the most I have had, in a single day, was six.

Thanks. It was a major surprise. I recall having 18 in one day back in 2014, I think it was. But that was then, and this is now...

Thanks. It was a tiny tsunami in the scheme of things, but still very encouraging given what's going on.

A $230 sale today is, I think, my second biggest sale on Alamy. A good month for me I have to say.

Positive news indeed. Interesting how things are panning out during the current state of affairs. I just had my fourth $$$ sale of the month show up today.

Just when I am about to give up on this month, four sales dropped in total ~$240, with one $$$. Cheers!

After a good few days I'd just need $80 reported today for a bme. Here's hoping...

Thank you, and good luck to everyone in these insecure times looking for sales and cleared payments as a source of income. Reported sales are one thing, the customer's ability to pay going forward could be an entirely different matter 😞

Just had a $35 calendar sale reported then instantly credited. I'll await with baited breath for a corrected sale, hopefully.

Could be differences in the licence details- net revenue sometimes gives a clue.
