Definitely moving in the right direction.

 

Hoping to upload many more images in 2021.

At the end of my first full year at Alamy (joined 29 September 2019).

For 2020 I have 6 sales for $142 gross.

Keep going Sally, You will get the $'s as you upload more images. Everyone here will tell you its a numbers game. Stephen

Many thanks for the encouragement Stephen. I really enjoy my photography and contributing to Alamy. Hoping to increase uploads as much as I can this year.

Stay with it, Sally — you got the touch. This is a long game and very frustrating at the beginning.

 

Thanks for the support Ed. Yes, realising it will take some time to build up sales, but I do enjoy it so that keeps me going.

Following on from my best year ever in 2019 it's a bit like after the Lord Mayor's show this time:-

Sales down 6%

Views down 7%

Zooms down 7%

CTR up 6%

And horror above horrors, Revenue was down 47%

Grit your teeth and carry on!

My second full year here. In 2019 I had only 3 sales, in 2020 it was 21. Revenue was doubled.

Thanks all of you for the plenty of advice, and Alamy for connecting to buyers!

2019 vs 2020:

Port increase: +26% (+444 images)
Views: -9%
Zooms: +48% (best year)
Number sales: +138% (best year)
Gross income: +89,7% (included ASCRL and DACS payments, first time) (best year)
Net income: +90,6% (best year)
Gross and net average price: -20% (this is going downhill year by year…worst ever)
Earnings per image per year: +51%

Yet to consider that 2019 wasn’t a good year in numbers compared to 2018 (which is the year I started to increase my port and have regular sales), so 2020 numbers seems quite good relatively.

Thank you Alamy. For a better new year!

Best year ever for me here on Alamy.  I sold more in 2020 than in 2019.  My net went way up due to this but my average per sale went up also.

 

Hoping 2021 continues this trend for me.

Rick, do you realize the first photo on page one using your blue numbers says “date taken 3rd January 23”?  They made a movie about time travel, but....wanna see the car you use

I only really started uploading in 2018, first sale was only in 2019. Here's how my 2019 compares to 2020.

 

2019:

sales - 8

revenue - lowish $$$

 

2020:

sales - 21

revenue - very high $$$. oh so nearly $$$$

 

almost a triple of sales volume, and a five fold increase in revenue. Am happy with that.

 

Though, I don't hope for much of an increase over 2020 this year. While I have added more, and still have a fair few more to add, it's not as much of an increase in image count as I'd like due to covid. Have been so slow to list a lot of images that probably could have netted me a few extra sales. I just don't have the energy.

 

This year I aim to become properly exclusive here. I just don't see the micro's as worth it. Came off shutterstock after their royalty changes, and the others don't do much for me.
