First sale this week : )

Recommended Posts

I feel like I'm finally joining the club here at Alamy, I got my first sale/license this past week.   :)  

 

I signed on at the end of May with my first 4 and have slowly been building my collection. A bit over 300 so far, but more coming soon!

Well done. It always seems to take a while for pix to get 'into the system'. Plenty more sales to follow... :)

Well done, Maria.  You have a nice variety of pictures which undoubtedly helps.  Keep uploading so you don't have to wait too long for the second sale!

Hi Maria,

 

I was also very happy to see my first sale. It only pushed me to work more. Few weeks lather the next 3 appeared. Like others mentioned you have great images and deserved to have your first sale.

I had my first sale in two months yesterday. It was to someone in India and paid a gross of $6.27. I can't tell you how excited I am. And, no -- I do not belong to any of the bargain schemes.

Thanks very much for your encouragement.   A round of virtual beverages on me!

A bottle of Black Isle Yellowhammer will do me fine.

I'm still waiting for my first sale. Have had two photos searched under their Alamy code, so I have been hoping to see at least one of them as a sale. But congrats Maria, slog on!

Congratulations. You must be only about 10 rupees short of Nirvana over that one.

As I understand it, they almost always come through - though you may have to wait months.  I'm hanging on for a couple, myself.

Ouch!  That won't keep you in chai, much less coffee.  I would not be a happy Larry with that sale after two months wait.  Sure I can't interest you in a iPhone app?

I'm sorry, Maria. I shouldn't be displaying my negativity on top of what is good news for you.  :huh:

Congratulations, Maria. Nice bright shot. It definitely doesn't look like Vancouver, though.

On the bright-ish side, though, even a small sale like this can help your ranking.

Same here, sold 4 images for India totalling gross $25.08 of which I'll get 30% !!!  Less and less revenue!
