I don't mean this to be one of those tedious whining threads, but 2022 has gotten off to a very slow start for me with only one small sale showing up yesterday and just two zooms so far. Is anyone else experiencing this?

i wonder if Alamy will update us on the Zoom reduction project.....  

 

 

as for slow, same here.  one tiny distro, and 3 zooms (though all 3 of them on specific searches where i was the only zoom, so fingers crossed)

January has been pretty good so far with 11 sales and two of those are +$$$.  On the assignment front, however, I am off to a slow start.  Looking at past Januarys, I was much busier.  I do have a new assistant working with me and she has been great so far, lots of energy and eager to learn photography!  She even went to my old high school...of course only the name and location are the same.  They rebuilt the school and I am very certain she had no teachers that I had.

That $250 target is looking a long way away at the moment. 

It's  $250 gross from last 1 July to this 30th June, Alamy's Revenue Year, clause 12 in our contract.

 

Meanwhile, I have two sales this year: total net: $2.49.

I stand corrected. The substantive point about slow sales so far this year is valid though, for me at least.

Just summed my gross sales column, well in to retain 40% during last year. So far gross sales varied from $1.67 to $99. Hopefully sales will remain a viable mix of high and low value, though would prefer not to have the low ones, but can't see that changing. So far January is slow.

One sale and one zoom here so far this month. My sale a couple of days ago was the first since 5th Dec last and I normally get one per week on average at the minimum. Zooms seem to be almost non-existant. Very disappointing.

1 teeny sale and a few zooms so far.

 

I was also wondering if the zooms/measures behind the scenes upgrades had been completed. It was supposed to start Sept 30 and last 3 months, wasn't it?

One zoom out of 23 photos in my new portfolio.  They looked; they zoomed (but they also zoomed on five others which were probably whole Leicas).  The shot is one I've rather liked for a while, camera intimate details.  I don't think it was ever zoomed in my first three or so years with Alamy, certainly never sold.

Yes. Thirteen small sales so far, which may seem OK, but I generally average at least two sales per day over any given month and would expect at least a couple of higher value licences by now.
