Good news - a $204 lease popped in today

 

Not so good news - it's a distributor sale, but still a reasonable return.

 

Not seen any 3 fig sales for a while....

That is good news and support for not opting out of distribution. 

 

I had a $200 marketing package (direct sale) one appear a couple of days ago. They're scarcer than they used to be but still out there...

Agree John, the net income from my distributor sales is generally a good deal more rewarding than that from the newspaper scheme, and blows some recent NU sales out of the water. I may withdraw from NU this coming year. Trick is to remember to do it when the time comes!

 

Good to see occasional straight $200 leases still to be had.

Yes, I'd be shooting myself in the foot -- and I only have one foot left metaphorically speaking -- if I opted out of distribution.

 

The recent $$$ sale that I mentioned was actually $199.99, so I took the liberty of rounding up. B)

 

I kicked the NU habit a long time ago. :D

It must be lucky distributor sale month. I see that I have a $250 distributor invoiced today.

 

That commission really hurts (ouch!). Still it's good to see some healthy numbers.

I must be getting increasingly pessimistic (a certainty, actually) 'cos I'm failing to see the positive in this! :unsure:

Paste this link using the "insert other media" and "insert image from URL" functions.

P.S. replacing "comp" with "zooms" in the URL above will give you a smaller image

Yesterday ticked over with another 11 sales, tipping the balance making this year my best year ever for both income and license count ever with 2 months left ... (ok , I only started there in 2009, after the heady years).

 

Yes the average license value is down but the annual income is up without me doing anything extra compared to previous years...

Yes, a healthy payout for me too! It was bolstered with a nice dose of DACS.

Rather more modest positive here - this was the first Monday I've got the web uploader to work wihout a problem (although I have mastered the FTP route). Also got my 300th image up for sale today . 1 zoom so far so my CTR is a poor 0.4 and waiting for my first sale....... However from small acorns etc as I am staying positive!

Have patience, it can take a while before they start to roll in. 6 months to a year isn't uncommon.
