Things were looking a bit sparse until today when three last-minute sales popped up -- one for $160 -- and saved the month. I ended up with ten sales (average for me) for $367 gross. Low average PPI due to a number of small "coffee money" distributor and UK newspaper licenses.

The last day surge only dropped in one sale but I will take it.  July was right about average (the more recent new average) with 16 sales for $958.  Only one sale +$100.

Good - more sales than usual and my "average CTR" is just below its all time high.

Mostly Alamy's bread and butter editorial images, and all this month for magazine or editorial website use, lowest price $27, and thankfully no PU sales, though no $100+ this month either. 

I haven't added anything new since last November, other than the occasional mobile phone photo, so it's nice to know things are working here even when I can't "feed the beast." Some older images have been licensed lately (2008-2012), as well as images taken in 2016, so that's good to see too - a nice mix of files selling.

Hoping I will have time to upload new images soon. 

Looking forward to more regular updates of "client wants" for ideas.

17 sales, $230 gross. One refund of $70 which lowered total amount. :-(

10 sales for a total of $295 gross, so a good month for me. Nine of the ten sales were for images taken and put on sale over two years ago.

18 for $642, better than recent average, possibly on track to match last year.  Some higher fees than of late too, so a modicum of encouragement.

 

Also sidled  past the 10,000 images mark, it has taken just a tad less than 10 years. Time wasted or a useful exercise? Gives me something to do in retirement, and a little extra cash, but not highly remunerative.

Eight for $200 gross, including my first Live News sale (Well it was live when I took it in Dec 2013!)

 

BME in terms if numbers, so pretty pleased and with a couple in the pipeline, well on course to pass last year very soon.

17 sales for a total of $502.28

Highest $55.69

Lowest $6.78

Average $29.55

Average seems to be going down month by month.

2 for 75 gross. One PU sale looked very lonely till near the end of the month, but a book sale came to keep it company and save the day. The book sale was taken as live news a couple of years back (but never sold as such)  and should hopefully be relatively easy to find, as I can only really see it relating to one of two subjects.

Zooms and ctr were really suffering too, mid-month, but picked up to be reasonable by the end. Hope to start uploading again soon, which will doubtless help matters.

Until late last night, it looked as if July would be my first month this year with no sales, but checked again this morning and had a $100 newspaper sale showing ☺. On a slightly more positive note, CTR and zooms increased during July, so hopefully, things will be better next month!

62 for $2870 gross - helped by a $646 sale at the beginning of the month, but also 5 other 3 figure sales

 

Numbers and gross income both about 20% down on last july

 

Also poorest CTR for several years (0.54) so overall zoom numbers slightly down which does not bode so well for the future....

 

Continuing to upload...

11 sales for $236 gross. So a little below average for both volume and revenue.

Lowest $6.78, highest $44.19, no distributors.

Rolling zooms 1st of month 52, end of month 32, so not a good trend.

However, rolling views on the 20th, July best ever, for the second month running.

John.

My July was just the same as any other month. With only 500 images uploaded so far over the last 5 months I'm still struggling to find my first sale. Live in hope and die in despair :D:wub::rolleyes:

101 for the month

 

only one working day without a sale; more than balanced by sales on 6 weekend days...

Best month ever, on an expanding portfolio - so as it should be but also a relief! Zooms and CTR heavily down though, so clearly some work to do on the finer points of stock photography. I'm going to be gentle on myself for having done far more Live News photography than I originally intended, which may be playing a part.

13 licences totalling a disappointing $481.39 gross.

 

Zooms on the up currently with 62 over last month (several from my recent uploads), hopefully will translate into some good sales.
