John Mitchell Posted September 23, 2017 Share Posted September 23, 2017 Are there such things as sales ceilings or plateaus? For the past couple of years, I've been averaging 10 sales per month. I'm not a volume photographer, but I do upload on a regular basis, and my collection grows steadily (if slowly). However, my feeling now is that until I add thousands more images, my sales numbers will likely stay pretty much the same. I'm not complaining about this. In fact, as an older part-timer looking for extra income doing something enjoyable, I'm quite happy at the way things are going. Alamy has been and continues to be very good to me. I am curious, though, about whether or not "volume shooters" (sounds a bit ominous) with large collections have found that they reached sales ceilings/plateaus along the way. Also, were there milestones (10k, 20K, 50K, etc. images on sale) that you reached when you broke through relative ceilings and sales numbers showed sudden increases? P.S. I realize that stock photography isn't totally a numbers game. Variety, quality, relevance, etc. are obviously all part of the equation as well.
