Guess I'll get the the 2020 ball rolling...

 

The year started off well for me with 17 sales for $863 gross. Three $$$ (barely) sales to report.

 

How was your January?

Hoping this is an indication that i am getting my footing around this endeavour...

 

 

13 licences, slightly helped by a set of 5 downloads from CultureTrip.....  Obviously that affects my average, bringing it below $20 per image, for a total of $236

 

my CTR hanging around 1.0 again, though that was pushed at end of month...

12 sales for $693, boosted by a $200 direct sale. One photo sold three times, exactly same license. Fingers crossed no refund.

I can’t complain.  19 sales for $1,827.  Lots of low value sales but was bolstered by an advertising sale that really helped the month be a winner.  Nice start to the year.

Really weird month. I had everything from $1.05 to $$$. 

Until two big sales only dropped in last week, I feared it would be the worst month for a long time.

However, now it's above average, but still too many below $10 sales which, incidentially, made up more than 60% of my sales for January.

Good thanks to a nice $$$ sale. 12 sales for $889, pity of my latest sales, one PU and one student. CTR average.

28 sales for $1,204. A good month and a nice payment coming in February.

5 sale for $40.64 gross . 3 of that were usage in Dec 2019, no idea about the other two as they are RF. All for the sale looks to be the same customer (UK newspaper). CTR 0.21

 

A plus side from this customer is they always buy one for $12 for print version and then another $5 for digital version.

Views 5673.  Zooms 16.  CTR 0.28.

15 sales for a total of $249.00.

Highest $62.99.  Lowest $2.14.  Average $16.60, this is my lowest monthly average in the 14 years I've been with Alamy.

What I really find depressing is when comparing average prices, I find that my overall average (over 14 years) has slipped from $50.99 in January 2019 to $45.97 in January 2020.

I can only feel that this trend will continue.

Below average for number of sales - 19 - but above average for returns - $637 gross.  One good $$$ sale and a couple of higher $$ sales helped push the average gross to $33.54.  Zooms holding up well so lots of promise for the future.  A good start to 2020.

Very disappointing - 14 sales for $159 gross.  Lots of newpaper tiddlers, 6 being 'that' Gardai picture.  I hope to hell February improves!

Slowish with 5 licences at $98 but still keeping to my average of one licence per week!

7 sales $249 gross net $123 🙄 of that $93 was down to 2 photos the rest was microstock territory prices

 

Though an article in the Times netted me disappointing $2.53 c'est la vie 😑

 

The most startling thing was two $1 distributor sales ~ I'd signed out distribution in April 2019 and it took 8 months for these to show up.

Mediocre - 18 sales (about average) for $479 gross (lowest total for the last twelve months).

Reached my monthly average over the last 12 months at 10 sales, 4 distributor, including 1 to a French newspaper that was $$$(highest for the month), compared to a frame from the same shoot taken seconds apart which went direct to a UK newspaper for the usual $😣, not Live News.

Above average prices😁 Gross $491.

A little below average for me at 9 licences for $185 gross. My number of zooms was my second highest ever though, so hopefully that will lead to some more sales soon.

A poor month for me, with 10 sales for $305 ($111 net).  My other experiment with the same number of images did better ($142 net).  Even number two experiment which ironically requires sRGB images, where I have only 1/3 of the images, beat Alamy this month ($119 net).  Micro is beating macro - go figure.

A strange month with a strong surge of $4 to $5 sales, making it maybe my highest number of sales ever over a  single month, but with mostly small values, the gross total may be above average, but nothing to write home about.

 

Total sales: 39!

 

Gross revenue: $739

 

Also had a refund for an $80 sale (not counted in totals above).
