Remember all those crappy Neuvo Vallarta Mexico image sales for pennies I complained about last year?  Well I just got a sale for a NV image used in a ad campaign: $2210/884.

I think that is my highest sale on Alamy, ever.  Wouldn't it be nice if those came along every year?

 

great news well done.

Congratulations!

Would it be possible that you got this sale because your ranking improved because of all those penny sales? Or is it just the best ever image of NV on Alamy?

- I just noticed you do have quite a market share 😁.

BTW Neuvo Vallarta Mexico only has 1 image on Alamy. Maybe it's a good idea to include that miss spelling in your keywords 😁.

no search for Neuvo Vallarta in last year (but misspelling still something to cater for)

 

 

the impact of penny sales is something i was actually pondering this morning.  would love if Alamy would chime in if data from distributor have impact (i have not seen it), may actually alter my view on distro.

This is what we need to keep in mind with Alamy - there is always the chance of catching a big one. Other places there isn't.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations I was thinking about quitting but it does give hope that there are sales out there

Yes, that was a typo.  It should be Nuevo.  It's an aerial view of the golf course, sold in the UK.

Thanks for the congratulations.  Now if that gets refunded I'm going to sue for cruel and unusual punishment 😀

I'd take it to The Hague if that happens.

Good luck. Fingers crossed... 🤞

A couple of small sales this weekend has dragged my gross sales, since starting here at Alamy in 2005, over the $200,000 threshold!  I seriously doubt I will see the $300,000 mark but that would be nice.

congratulations.  great job.

Your post prompted me to check mine. I realised I passed the $40,000 milestone sometime. That’s in 5 years, but the first year was almost negligible.

Not bad. It has taken me over 13 years to reach roughly $95K.

Nicely done.  You started about the same time as me, and in spite of fewer images, you've beat me with sales.  I'm only at 141,000

You should be pleased.  In another 10 years you'll hit 300,000 -  you watch.

Very well deserved Michael, you worked hard for it. I am far far behind you, i can only dream.

Thanks everyone! It is a nice milestone.  We all work hard and I have so much respect for all of you.  I think geography plays the biggest role sometimes.  I have been lucky to work around the DC area where the demand for images is still somewhat strong.  Though I have to admit, for obvious reasons, I am just not as inspired to create new stock, like I once did.  Not giving up but just not working as hard as I use to.
