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!

Good on ya, Mark!  I love the positive attitude, just keep plugging away and the sales will come - good luck!

With payment received today from Alamy, this makes it my best year ever (since 2002) both in terms of volume and revenue. And 2 more months to go.

Thank you Alamy. Happy.

Wow, well done! I was aiming at 5k by the end of the year, but now I'll be happy enough if I reach 4500.

After spending several months going over and re-keywording/editing/deleting/adding info etc. to all my images in the Alamy Image Manager, I've finally finished.

 

I can have my life back now !

Is it making a difference ?

 

I've absolutely no idea !

 

Deleted, or are up for deletion, about 200 or so images I think (but have deleted many more over time prior to re-doing it all).

Think it's good to be honest with oneself and get rid of stuff that is just a duplicate of other work that's out there (and better), and mine was a just bit pants.

No point in having views if the images are not up to scratch, and customers don't select them.

 

I had many irrelevant keywords from my earlier Alamy days.

Like a Christmas cake over time, my keywording skills have improved over time!

 

I'm hoping that just marking the 10 supertags makes a bit of difference, and puts images a bit higher up the search order.

 

Sales doing okay this year, on 105 at mo.

Me too 😄

However there are a bunch of older images still in the process of deletion.

With only 600 images I sure will not see sales in a near future. I better start shooting and uploading.

I have benefited from looking at the ‘images sold’ threads on this forum. It’s not just about the numbers.

I normally get a few but just one calendar sale so far today, for an image taken in 2015. Hastings fishing boat and anchor among the sheds.

Interesting, mine are both of the same Victorian coastal fortification. Maybe a coastal theme there. Not Forest though. Must be a different calendar.
