The year is now half-gone (hard to believe), so here it is: the official and inevitable "How is your 2018 going?" thread.

 

In 2017, I had 136 sales total, and 69 sales during the first six months of 2018. My current gross income is about 43% of my 2017 total.

 

So the pattern is looking remarkably similar...

Sales and revenue both at slightly more than half last year's totals. I had exponential growth in both from 2013 to 2016, so it looks as though that rate of increase has definitively slowed.

Volume and revenue up 64% Jan-June,  53% of last year's revenue as a whole, average down 1/3 on last year as a whole but the same as Jan-June last. Encouraging, I thought my averages were suffering but apparently not on careful analysis.

Total sales in 2017 were 191, currently have 105. 

Total revenues in 2017 were $6060 gross and currently at $3152 gross for the first 6 months of 2018. 

 

So a little ahead of 2017 but with a great deal more images. 4% increase in revenues from maybe a 30% increase in images? 

 

Zooms are also way down from their peak of 95 in November 2017 for the rolling month, compared to a current total of 60.

I am just about halfway to both sales and revenue totals of 2017.  I guess better than heading downwards!!

4.5 years in and my sales and revenue are still on an upward trajectory.  79% of last years sales numbers already banked (139 in 2018 vs 175 sales in 2017). 70% of last years revenue already accrued.  Looking forward to the second half of the year.

Slightly more than half for both $$ and sales.

I'm happy that things are looking up this year!  Both sales and revenue so far have surpassed my values for all of 2017.

Jan to end of June 2017: 77 sales

Jan to end of June 2018: 113 sales

 

Revenue up by 62%.

 

July is statistically a slow month for me so I don't expect anything spectacular, but overall I'm very happy! Thank you Alamy.

A little ahead of last year.

Interestingly half of June’s sales are RF. Yet 2/3 of my images are RM...maybe 3/4.

So far, number of sales are at 60% of 2017 totals, yet revenue is slightly less than 40%. More sales and a lot less $.

97% of volume, 104% of $$$.

 

June has slowed down a lot, but expect to remain at least 50% up by year's end.

At the half way point of 2018 I'm at 2/3rds of the number of sales from 2017 and slightly more in terms of revenue and that is despite June being a washout.  So all in all upwards and onwards.

Sales volume up, dollar volume down; both changes marginal.

For me 52% w.r.t 2017 total sales, but only the 42% in terms of revenues.

Steady progress year on year. Best year yet by far in terms of number of sales.

Slightly up on revenue, slightly down on numbers but the second half of the year is usually better for me.

 

He said hopefully...

Considering we are half way through 2018, a lot worse then 2017. Which was a lot worse than 2016. Which was a damn site better than 2015. Which was the same as 2017.

 

Which only goes to show that Alamy mucking about with the search engine in 2017 has affected my sales.

Compared with end of June 2017,

 

Image numbers increased by 11.5%

 

Views up 7%

Zooms up 8%

Sale numbers up 10%

Gross value up 19%

 

2017 was the first year where sales/income were not higher than the previous year (ie. 2016 is presently my best year)

Up on both units and revenue sales against same period last year.

2018 not quite as encouraging for Alamy sales growth mid point as previous years. My gross sales revenue stats:

 

1 Jan -30 June 2018 13% up on 2017

1 Jan -30 June 2017 49% up on 2016

1 Jan -30 June 2016 44% up on 2015

 

Definite slowdown for me in the pace of sales revenue growth, in spite of adding around 1000 shots monthly for the past year. At least the trend is currently still upwards.

Things were going swimmingly for me following a tweak to the Alamy search engine in late 2017, which up until then had been very poor compared to previous years. Zooms and sales then returned to reasonable levels. Then, as Allan notes,  Alamy made another change to the search engine in May 2018 which returned it largely to the state it was in 2017. As a result my views, zooms and sales have again been decimated.
