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.

Happy to get a few $$$ sales this year, and to receive a pay cheque every month for the first time.

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.
