question: zooms by Alamy code

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new here so just wanted to say hi and also ask a question to the forum.  In your experience, how often do zooms of pictures that were searched by the six-character Alamy code eventually convert into sales?  I got my first zoom where the search term was the Alamy code, so was just curious if it would be reasonable to expect a sale down the road.

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

 

Cheers,

Felix

I've certainly had sales from these searches, I'd say about 40/60 at a rough guess, but it is sometimes hard to tell because the time between the initial zoom and the sale can be many months.

I've just surprised myself - I've checked this year's zooms and I had four direct zooms on Alamy reference and they all resulted in sales.

I've only had one zoom this year on a ref number and it resulted in a sale.

Do you mean in the "customer search page"  ..? I have 1000s of views and  a lot of zooms since I started back a month ago  but no sales.. so they must zoom at my images and go ** yuck** and run....   :)  :D  :D ..

Do you mean 'thousands'? With a port your size it should only be a few hundred if you keywording is fairly tight.

Even when mine was rather indiscriminate I had no more than 2-3 views/image/month.

I will go and count I have a few thousand views only  and a few zooms... back soon...

 

 

Couldn't possibly count them all... I have one  images at   11,260  another 9,036  the 8 others  go down to 1,320   then loads with 100s views .. could I copy the pages and post it on here ..is that aloud ??

    Now just let me get this right am I looking at the right page " Costumer search activity"  page...   and each day you  get the views/zooms  from the day before...am I doing this right or looking at the wrong page... :(

   Maybe I need help cos I am not sure at what I am look at.... :wacko:

BqarbaraL - sounds like you are looking in the wrong place.

 

Go to MY ALAMY, then YOUR IMAGES. This will give a rolling monthly view of your views and zooms. If you are getting as many hits as you say on 168 images, folk here are going to be mighty jealous!

IS this what i should be looking at....... lets hope I have got it right in the end.

I WAS looking at the wrong part of the page as something that looks like a spread sheet..like this BELOW which gives me and I suppose everyone 1000s of views...

search team your views sessions your zooms your sales your CTR total views total zooms total CTR%

 

 

Sorry ​ I am such a DORK and that's putting it mildly.. :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

 

No I have not had any zooms have I ... Have to get my finger out and work harder,,

The zoom I had by Alamy referral code resulted in a sale! :) This makes me very happy.

Anyone else have a sale that looks like the following?

 

Country: Worldwide
Usage: Editorial
Media: Textbook - print and e-book
Print run: Unlimited
Placement: Inside
Image Size: 2 page spread
Start: 01 April 2014
End: 01 April 2039
All terms and rights granted as per the Alamy Preferred Vendor Agreement dated 26th January 2010 prevail. Flat rate per image, license period 20 years

$ 180.00

 

Just curious who the picture buyer might be.

 

Cheers,

Felix

Zooms by the Alamy image code will most often result in sales - I'd say in around 90% of the cases. I had two code zooms today deriving from searches and zooms a few days ago.

 

PS Just noticed your sale - CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS ONE   :)

I've always figured that a search by code, is alamy entering a sale, or a picture researcher wanting to bring something up to show a prospective customer. Either-way they nearly always turn into sales

I have had two, but neither so far has registered as a sale.

How can you tell what the search code is for an image?
