Well, it's October in lots of places now, so here's what I got in September:

13 sales for $362/141.  Those months with $1000 gross seem gone for me now. 

SS did better ($183) and AS did worse ($115).

How about you?

An average number of sales, 17, but prices were lower in September....$677 gross.  An odd thing happened this month, I had four sets of twin sales!  This means that 4 buyers each licensed two photos of mine from the same subject or shoot.  That helped my month for sure!

The month started well with a flurry of sales including a $101 lease, but that fizzled out until a small group of Newspaper leases arrived at the death. 19 for $460 gross. 

 

Overall, and rather surprisingly, the quantity of sales is holding up reasonably well, but my income is down appreciably this year. Hopefully Mr Dacs will provide a boost later this month.

Decent month for me as well with 15 sales (average) for $706 gross. Also, the DACS fairy arrived early (today), so I'm a grateful camper overall.

 

Tough to believe that we're heading into the last quarter of this very strange year... 😷

5 sales for $119 gross. CTR 0.53.

Just had a look at some of my earlier pictures, captions and keywords shocking! Guess I've got something to do during the winter months / 2nd lockdown(?)

28 sales for $544 gross.  Happy with the number of sales but the prices are rubbish - I only managed two $$$ and a hanful of low $$.  The rest were those really irritating $, with some being a quarter page print yokes.  Apparently size doesn't matter, according to Alamy.  Onwards!

Sales volume, revenue and zooms up from last month. 
However, looking at the sales of the last 12 months, there is still a downward trend.

Good: $$$ are back.

Best month for sales since July last year with 16, but prices were bad, so only $297 gross. Highest $82.62, lowest $3.18.

 

My cleared balance was only $30 yesterday but has gone up to $114 today - so I will get a payout afterall!

 

Views, zooms and CTR up so looking forward to the flurry of sales this month!

Likewise. Just 17 for $290. Stumped as to why

5 sales ( four RM and one RF) for $115 gross. Happy with the sales volume as this is the second top in the three years I have been contributing.

 

CTR 3 times more than my average. Fingers crossed for these to be sales soon 🙂

4 sales for $54 gross. Views well down but CTR picked up in the last week. I did have an additional PU sale which, surprise, surprise was refunded a few days later. That abuse really has to be stopped.

3 for $65 gross. Gross. 

 

Crunched some numbers - Sept 2019 vs Sept 2020:

 

Rise in images (from 11,195 to 12,094) = +7%
Drop in sales (from 7 to 3)
Drop in views (from 6,642 to 4,634) = (30%)
Drop in zooms (from 29 to 10) = (66%)
Drop in CTR (from 0.39 to 0.18) = (54%)

 

Detailed report on all my September earnings from all stock agencies.
