This thread reminds me of some lines in a play by Samuel Beckett.

Nothing happening here either. No sales or zooms for about a month now and, disturbingly, views are unusually low. Ah well, the only way is up......

 

Jim.  :(

I thought it was only my problem to have no zooms and sales. )

Some views, no zooms and no sales, but maybe my images are not so interesting.

And a new batch stuck at QC

What heinous crime did you commit to deserve that period of incarceration?

Three fails since late May. I only managed to get a couple of hundred up before being nabbed again....and again.

I'm sorry, Bryan -- are you talking about August or September? It's only the 9th day of September, you know?

I've always found it odd how my zooms have almost nothing to do with my sales. The zoomed images are always the ones I like best, feel are most worthy. The images that sell? . . .  who knows?  :rolleyes:

I'd say it was worse than times past. Maybe there's just too much other things going on. The news sector certainly seems active. I've had 14 in the nationals this year. However, the stock side of things is a bit slow. Largely due to my ever increasing portfolio of editorial I guess.

Well,ebb and flow,sometimes we will just have tumbleweeds rolling thru our stock business . It's usually only temporary.

Totally bleak September so far after two very good months in July and August. But the month is still in diapers...

 

Is it OK to blame this temporary downtown on Scotland?

Yeah this is my second time around here. I have uploaded some files which have sold over 6000 times at other agencies but not here, earning me a fortune. Here?  not even one download. Incredible!!  its all down to the search-engine. I have a special software from Barco which immediately will tell me if the search is in line or not. Its not!.

I don't get it? this creative vs relevance, clearly isnt working. Why not do something about it?

It's a mixed bag for me. I find that zoomed images often sell a month or two later. Some sell a couple of days later, and others never lease at all. Had my first zoom of the month today of an image that was eyeballed (hopefully not the evil eye) not long ago, so I'm hoping this will break the early September hex.

I am not sure I place a great degree of faith in exactly which images are zoomed - sometimes they sell, and sometimes un-zoomed images sell.

 

What I think is more important is the number of zooms you have in a period of time - for me the ratio of zooms (any) to sales (any, within the next month or 6 weeks) is often fairly constant - it used to be about 4:1 and is now nearer 5:1

 

And the most useful indicator of all is when the actual image ID is searched for, whether its zoomed or not - that seems to result in a sale about 50% or more of the time.

 

If you are getting zooms, relax - the sales will follow - Its like applying for jobs - if you are getting interviews you will get a job;... but no interviews then re-think needed...

Quite a good first week - 6 sales and no insulting amounts.

Also two pics found in the papers for future money.

This week? - two of those sales refunded and resold at half the price.

Still, it's only Tuesday.
