February over already?

Recommended Posts

103 sales for the month....which is about par for the course, and not too bad considering that there were 2 or 3 fewer working days ..

Having been told that some overdue sales would be included in February I chased them up as still unreported to be told: "The month of February finished yesterday and due to the shorter length of the month the team have not long received the usage report so these uses haven’t been billed yet. The sales should appear within your account early this month." So no, February isn't over already!

12 mostly low fee newspaper sales for £196 gross. So so disappointing.

3 sales for $18, $9, $9 

 

I am happy to have actually made sales after a huge lull since November but Just for comparison I got $ 330 on Just one microstock site for multiple sales, some big, some small. An unusually high month but nevertheless I couldn’t survive without it. I just wish Alamy got us better prices.

Very poor month with just two PU sales for $28 gross. Views and zooms dropped since end of January as well.

How long is overdue?  I have one outstanding uncleared sale from 17th November.

No worries.

October 4 is my oldest at the moment. Quite normal.

It's a lot less now than it used to be. Even distributor's sales clear within a couple of months nowadays. Well mostly.

February is gone.  So is winter in Toronto, apparently.

Decent number of sales this month (17), but oh my goodness, very low amounts (down to $3.52 gross) for a total of $345.  Minus a refund of $115 from back in December.  Argghh!

Couldn't agree more, Reimar.

71 sales here, but only 1 in $$$ ($160); total gross $1778 - poorest average figures ever for me at $25/sale gross

Zooms good though at 239 with CTR of 0.67

A slow month, but still better than last February, so there is still plenty of hope for the year.

 

4 sales for $239.61 / $109.69  ( gross / net ).  High 149.00/74.50, low two presentations at 19.99/10.00

 

Much lower views and zooms with 2915 / 13 for a CTR of 0.45  (only slightly lower than average on the CTR).

Doc. it must be frustrating for you, when Wim can nearly achieve the same results with a tenth of the images and roughly half the sales. There's gotta be something Wim's not telling us. lol ;)

Ten for $655 (thus far!). Bit of an odd month. One sale $400, five low value web uses, just one PU (unusually low for me) and the balance book uses around $60. Zooms average.

OK here's the real secret: I actually have a lot of rubbish images still.

Part of it is luck. AND I'm a lazy b*d. (Already in art school -ages ago- there were 2 opinions: he never sleeps/he always sleeps. Both were true of course.)

And then there's the law of diminishing returns: those 40 more that Doc sold, required a lot more effort over the years. So my hat off to Doc. But also to everyone selling just a few in very over-saturated markets. And let's encourage everyone who got naught this month.

Another real secret: allow yourself to be playful once in a while regularly.

LOL  :D.

Wim does a very good job of curating his collection and getting rid of poor images getting no views I suspect!  My hat's off to him as well!

 I am no good at judging which images will sell and which wont, so so long as things are going OK I will just keep on with it since I am still enjoying it! (and the travelling!)

Just goes to show there's more than one way to skin a cat ( no insult to cats!)

 

Cheers

It's all play when you come right down to it, and sometimes playing too hard does nothing but wear you out. Surfers have the right idea. They follow the line of least resistance.

Better than December and January. 

Average amount $39.30 - with five (unexpected) sales over $100 and nine (unfortunate) sales under $10. 

An okay month. Slightly above average.

5 sales for $61, mostly Newspaper. Better than the poor January but far less than the same months of last year. Zooms average.

8 for $278.

 

Plus I had a refunded one (early January refund) reinstated.  I found it being used. Must of been a clerical error I'm sure.
