Doc Posted January 2, 2016 Share Posted January 2, 2016 Here are some statistics from my sales in 2015 (647 in total), divided up by the initial letter in their Alamy code. For those unfamiliar, the "A"s were the first, and as the number of images on Alamy has grown we are now on image codes starting with "F" The first row is the number of sales made; the second row is the number of Images with that starting letter I have on Alamy, The third row is the percentage of images with that starting letter which sold in 2015 A 29 1820 1.6% Pre 2007 B 158 5470 2.9% 2007-2010 C 187 4880 3.8% 2010-2012 D 169 3130 5.4% 2012-mid 2014 E 99 2524 3.9% mid 2014-early 2015 F 3 768 0.4% 2015-present (dates are approximate) Can any conclusions be drawn from these figures?? My conclusions are as follows: 1. The number of images appearing on Alamy is continuing to accelerate (!) 2. My sales success rate for my older images is rather poor - partially I think because my keywording was not so good at that time (and of course the system has changed meantime), but mainly because they are getting lower and lower down in the searches. HOWEVER, they are continuing to raise some sales 3. Best figures are coming from those images I put up 2-3 years ago - maybe because the keywording was good and they are still appearing relatively high up in searches though many other factors may well be involved (subject matter etc) I would be interested to hear what others think (apart from the fact that I must have OCD) Kumar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
