After a long period of healthy sales, April is proving a disappointment, only two to date, and my CTR in free fall. I'm long enough in this game to know that there is no certainty, that some months are better than others, but it's always a concern when things slow right down. Hopefully next week will see some improvement !

You’ve sold two more than I, Bryan. Like you, I realize there are good and bad months. I often don’t license anything early in the month. Sometimes…even later! 🙃

Same here. Just 2 sales so far, and fewer zooms than usual. I guess a lot of people are taking long Easter breaks. I checked previous results, and I didn't get any sales until the 12th April last year, so at least I'm ahead of that.

My sales often vary wildly, likely due to a relatively small port. Only one sale so far and at a fair price, worth more than 50 times the value of the $ sales, but could do with more. Many of my sales appear at the end of the month, so not over concerned yet. Now back to captioning and tagging a few images shot this week, then uploading while still topical and crossing fingers.

 

Edit, a rare for me Saturday sale came in earlier, lower mid $$, so pleased no $ sales so far. May they continue, but I doubt they will.

That makes sense, a comforting thought !

A bit like after the Lord Mayor's show here this month. Nothing to show so far after a quite good March. Plenty of views and zooms and CTR is well up. Only five sales last April so hope springs eternal that it will pick up!

Unusual for me to go this far into a month with no sales and with the slowdown expected due to Easter probably not going to be a great month but I guess every month can't be a record month. Still well ahead after the first 3 months

After a bumper month in March I only have one small sale in April so far. Zooms are doing well so there is that hope of future sales as the month progresses.

It’s a slow month for most, including Alamy. Views and sales are down drastically from the same period in April of last year. I took a quick look at All of Alamy from a year ago to compare to now.

Hi Alex,

I'm obviously bored. But one of your captions gave me a laugh, sorry!

is this meaningful with the Reset and review Alamy did on measures last autumn (and never gave further info on) ?  To be honest not sure i trust most of those results on a comparison basis.

If you look at the percentage difference, it’s huge. There is something going on, it could be a number of things. My sales were humming along at a respectable clip and have suddenly drastically decreased. Zooms are way down. Is it something Alamy did or the current world conditions? Only folks who sell through multiple channels can answer that.

as an aside after a record low CTR last month, under 0.20, i am now running at 1.80 this month so far!??

as i said, Alamy never really updated on the impact of their review.  Personally my zoom have been tanking for over 6 months (until last 2 weeks), but i have never seen any positive correlation between Zooms and Licences.
