Positive, my second $$$ this week.  The first one a low $$$ for an IQ Sale, and today a Mid $$$ for a Direct Mail and brochures.....  Both direct.  Second is my highest licence to date, quick turn-around as Account Rep contacted me last week to waive a restriction.  

 

 

 

The not so positive, one month for now Alamy would charge me almost the equivalent of the first licence's net earning in extra for their service.

I suggest you add “truss bridge” to your keywords of your rail bridge on the first page.

I've never yet had a month on Alamy with sales on every working day (Mon-Fri).
Three days to go and on track for the first time - newspapers still to report, fingers crossed....

interesting, since my focus of the image was mainly the closed off part of it and the naming, so i thought the architectural component was likely not of interest of someone looking for that specifically, so i'll get a wider lens and try and go and capture that component now.  thanks

I never knew what a truss bridge was until I researched this one a few miles from my old home in Oklahoma City several years back.

Yesterday I searched my portfolio for bridges, and found a couple of truss foot bridges, also. I had not included that tag, but have now. You never know when someone may search for a truss bridge specifically.

Here's a bunch. Invented by a Scotsman I believe, like most things.

First one's actually in Scotland; NZ; Dresden.

From what I read, no attribution for inventor, but the first patent went to an American.

Just noticed went through $2000 since I joined Alamy in 2018 took 86 licences. I have know idea if thats a good average, at least it's a milestone of sorts. Got a sneaking suspicion that with licences dropping the next 2000 will take a fair bit longer.😏

probably back on average per image sold - well done

Just had a reasonable (by todays standards) licence drop in today which puts me past last years total revenue for the whole year. Just keep bashing away and results do come.🙂

Just had a late day sale drop in for $250!  TV use. Just under the wire to get 50%! Phew 😅 

Yes, I’ve had several $$$ sales reported this week, thank goodness. Still waiting for a book cover of a book published in May though.

Blimey, just checked... and... tumbleweeds 😛

But it's about 10 degrees cooler in the office than at home, so an incentive to get back into the office I guess!

I made another $$$150 calendar sale for Alamy, and was generously rewarded $60. Thank you.🙃

Just noticed I’ve topped 1000 sales and with today’s news sales I’ll have topped $30,000 gross. So much more work now to achieve this with the commission increase.

Well done Sally - an old saying "You only get out what you put in" and you have put a few shifts and a half in since 2017!

30 sales dropped in late last night with three for $$$ and a bunch of $$.  Looking at the difference between gross and net now the new contract is in effect is demoralising.  Onwards!
