Mirco Vacca Posted November 5, 2013 Share Posted November 5, 2013 Hello colleagues, I am very impressed about many photograpgers here how many sales they reach per month. It takes a lot of time and energy to reach that. Alamy seems to be a good income source for many photographers. It shows also that the level of images despite the larger tolerance of Alamy are higher here than on Microstock and makes me believe you will keep on be succesfull because of the different market. I take the example from my images that as good as not sold here. I had a test phase with Alamy with my kind of "Casual" images. I uploaded 5.000 images in the last 3 months. This kind of images i also have on microstock that gives me good revenue. I see the sales passing every day. Smaller revenue per images but the amount of sales compensate it. With this kind of images i dont have any success on Alamy (my keywording in not better at Microstock). So conclusion from my side: I have as good as no sales with the same kind of images that i have on microstock. On microstock with half portfolio size far more sales from 1 agency. Not counting the others. On the other hand other photographers make here great income. So i think that the good earning photographers dont need to be afraid of Microstock since it has a totaly different group of clients. Perhaps my problem is that i have to casual images that fits better in the Microstock world. Also i guess that UK and US has more potential. Anyway i like Alamy anyway very much and hope still to see some more sales pop up. Also i like to read the topics in this forum. Mirco Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
