Sales volume up slightly on last 2 years but down slightly on best ever.

 

Gross revenue down by about 30% on best ever, so net down further.

 

One (kind of) positive, the rate of decline in gross revenue eased during this year after two years of approaching freefall.

Thanks Alamy.

106 sales, 26% higher than 2019. Gross revenue down 20%.

 

Lowest gross revenue since 2013, but I've only uploaded about 200 images this year so it's what I expected.

Sales this year 128 - most ever.

 

Last year it was 114 gross revenue was about $2500 same as this year.

 

The last year which had less gross revenue than this was back in 2010 when 46 sales produced about $1900

 

With Covid restrictions and on-going cancer treatment I was pleased to add 855.   In normal times most of my images come from towns and cities but I have been to any of those in 2020.

 

I am still very pleased to be an Alamy Contributor - it is what I do, 

 

Thanks Alamy for doing so well in this difficult year.

Sales down 48%

Income down 60%

Average sale $14 (past 3 years approx $28 )

But no complaints as have not been active for 12 months due to studying alongside busy day job. 

Maybe shows how important it is to be active !

Can get back on the horse this year 😎

Looking forward to it..

253 sales for $8210 gross - sales down for the first time ever, and revenue continuing the gentle slide downward that began in 2018. Happy New Year, all!

Sales: -13%, compared to 2019.

Revenue: -30% compared to 2019, -47% compared to 2018. (gross, from chart on dashboard)

Worst full year for gross revenue, only worse year was 2009, the year I started.

Admittedly, due to personal circumstances, I hardly uploaded anything this year. These circumstances have changed, but I'm not sure whether it would be worth the effort: there is almost no 'live news' down here which is of interest to the nationals, and the local papers don't pay for images, or at least they don't use Alamy/other agency  images. General stock prices are shooting down, but with no uptick (for me, at least) in sales.

 

My 'other place' is also declining, but - with fewer files - I've already earned double what I earned on Alamy this year, with a month still to report (I uploaded even fewer files there this year). Things aren't likely to get better there either.

 

A lot of calculating to do.

Very slightly down on volume this year with 362 sales vs 2019's 365, but up on revenue with an increase in gross from $5885 to $6760, nett $2815 to $3298, nearly 17% higher than last year and my most rewarding year to date. 

 

Thanks Alamy.

 

Happy New Year to all of you.
