My dashboard is telling me that, thanks to a rare Sunday high $$ sale, I've finally reached the $100K gross revenue milestone. I made my first submission (via CD) in mid-2007 and started making regular sales in 2008, so it has only taken me 15 years! Average price per image over the years is about $61, which is pretty good all things considered. Unfortunately, I've spent my share, but thanks very much, Alamy.

Thanks very much, Gen. It strikes me that if I were starting out now, it would take a miracle, possibly even another lifetime to reach $100K. 😛

Well done John.

 

I calculated for me to reach $100K I would have to live to 596 years old.

Well done John!! 

 

Well-deserved, by, (as far as I know), the only person on this forum qualified to be "Part of the Forum Furniture"!

 

Best,

Well done John. Early mover certainly helps, don't think any of us 'newbies' are going to get anywhere close!

Congratulations! 🎉🥳🥂A great hallmark to reach, which is out of the reach of most of us.

 

Thanks, Betty. I was lucky enough to have a collection of "saleable" images taken for another library that I could put on Alamy back in 2007, and they started licensing right away. Interestingly, I just did the math, and if I can maintain my current rate of annual gross income, it would be possible to reach $200K in about 15.4 more years. At that point, I'd be pushing 90. Not sure I have the patience or the genes to last that long. However, I'll probably keep going as long as I'm still having fun. That's the main thing. 😁

Not having fun at the moment and losing interest after a borderline QC fail.

 

Been in klink for seven days with three days to go before I can upload again.

Very surprised you're not a 5-star general yet.

Too many fails. Had a lot in the early days then had at least one a year after that for some time. Later tried to do my best and even managed two or three years clear but I always managed to slip a fail in somewhere.

Just had a $152 direct sale, catalogue use in Italy/Austria/Germany. Whether it's a museum catalogue the information doesn't say, but there do seem to be a lot of these sort of sales going about at the moment.

 

First $$$ sale in a couple of years, and together with two other half decent sales this month I have already reached half of last years gross earnings. Long may this continue.

Missed your earlier post John, well done Sir ! 👍

 

In these parts a couple of low $$$ sales have just popped in, the euphoria slightly dampened as one is a distributor sale  🙃

Thanks, Bryan. Encouraging to hear about your recent $$$ sales. If this year is any indication, it's probably going to be a slow "downward" ride (with the occasional upturn hopefully) for me now. 🎢
