Pretty good for me. 6 sales at $483.35 gross 

 

Doesn't seem much, or any, rhyme or reason to this. I have increased images in my portfolio on Alamy in past couple of years  but all these sales bar one are from images taken/uploaded more than 3 years ago. Most recent image in these stats was taken two months ago  - a friend shopping in supermarket - which just goes to prove that you must always have the camera with you.

 

Regards

Oops. Not sure what happened there. Thought it didn't go through first time.

I hope that the U.S. Holiday, Thanksgiving, next week, doesn't have a big impact on sales. Basically no one works from Wednesday, through the weekend (except for the poor sales people working at retail stores who are having Christmas sales going on)!

Three so far this month and one of them was for $180.   Interesting that several people have reported sales at this price.  In the early part of the year I had many newspaper sales at  $6 and I am pleased to say these seem to have stopped now.

 

On average for me the last week of the month produces 40% of sales so looking forward to good times coming...

Likewise John, slow here. But, its only the 18th, so plenty of time yet. Think positive!

 

I'm agree with you Richard. This month I haven't sales yet, but who knows what could happen tomorrow? ;) We'll keep working.

Another sale today and if I could have the 40% in the last week I would be happy  :D  Keeps that graph going in the right direction!!! Not far off matching last month now.

You know the answer guys, upload more images. It seems to be the only answer to slow sales.

I agree with this statement ............ up to a point.

 

It's pointless uploading too many similars or just uploading anything just to get the numbers up - that will just damage your ranking.

 

One needs a variety of different subjects, tight editing, good keywording and the indefinable 'good vision' to make your images stand out in a very crowded marketplace.

I keep clicking on Summary of items sold, but no more sales are coming up. Is there a fault at Alamy's end?

 

(Sorry..)

I've just had two pop up invoiced in Net Revenue - a 180 and a 90 - possible the month may not be an utter disaster after all.

 No. The problem is at your end. You are eating too many peanuts ;)

:) I think the problem is that I'm spending too much time on here (there are those who would agree, judging by some rather random red marks of death I've got to all my posts on another thread!) rather than taking pictures of the peanuts!  Probably why I'm making peanuts!  Pass the popcorn.

 

Anyhoo, despite my BME, looks like everyone is overtaking me (not that difficult :D) and a good thing too.  Best of luck all!

Those packing 'peanuts' you use for parcels aren't too bad- they're actually puffed-up maize. At their best they're a bit like cheesy Wotsits, sans cheese.

Mine are a bit stale though.

 

Not the figure-8 macaroni, mind. They're plastic.

Enjoyable though it is, I think I may be getting a bad reputation for taking things OT here.  Apologies to John and hope that you end up with a BME.

 

I'm off for some keywording therapy, treatment, rehabilitation, healing, remedy, cure, analysis, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy.

Yes a slow month so far,  but my zooms are up,  so they may convert into sales at some later date. October was  also slow for me!

I've had a couple more sales materialize since I started this thread, so the slow month is slowly picking up, which is encouraging.
