Post your positive results in 2018 here! :)

Recommended Posts

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...

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

 

i can't see the positive either

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.

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.

Bit of a slow burner, but finally got 5000 images online. Retiring from work early next year so will be ramping up the uploads then. :)

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 !
