How many images did you have online when you started to make $100 per month at 123RF (excluding EL sales)?

This month I have zero dl.s!
I have about 200 images online...
Does that mean I need endless number of photos in my portfolio to reach 100 $/month!? :D ::)

I think I would need about 5,000.

I have almost 3000 images there now and make well over $100 a month.   If IS keeps going like is has over the last 4 months...they might be down around the same in another 4 months  :(

I  started uploading there about 9 months ago and have about 600 of my best images there.   This month for the first time I should make 100$ on normal sales (currently at nearly 75$) althought Thanksgiving might ruin it if the customers are
American.  Last month I made more but had 2 ELS at about 20$ each.

About 500 images online. Estimated earnings this month will be about $60. It's increasing slowly every month.

Hi Freedom

After around a year with 123rf and about 850 images I have passed the $100.
IMO They are going stronger. I fave my images, but have no clue if that helps.

good luck

I earn 10-20% of the amount earned at DT, SS, IS, StockXpert.

I earn 2-3 times more at BigStock, so I have no idea why 123rf is included in the big 6 and why BigStock is excluded.

As I see, the earnings of this month will be 10% of the others, it's going very-very slowly.

so, enlighten this newbie. it's important to have quality images, but the bottom line of selling regularly is still volume, isn't it?

i did post this question to several sites , "what's wrong with my images? i sell , but sell very little , and if any mostly subs. are my keywording, or quality of my images lousy?"
the answers all came back, "your images are good, or else they would have been rejected. but with so little images in your port, and with 6 million images for buyers to choose, it's easy for your images to get buried. keep uploading".

so it's the reality, isn't it? i better be a "shooting machine", as one of my networks put it.

My situation is similar, 123RF is a very weak performer for me.  It's hard to understand why it can be the best or so for others, but it can.

It isn't just quality; it has to be the right images.  You also have to upload on a regular basis.  Assuning you have a 90% acceptance rate, or better, on any given site, you have a chance.  Without MR's you can forget about it.  I don't know of anyone making $100 a month without models, volume and a very high acceptance level.

I personally stopped uploading to 123RF due to an acceptance rate of 3%.   Sales on my small portfolio is around $1 to $4.50.  The low sales is attributed to the fact that I cannot upload anything that would be accepted on a regular basis.

After my next paayout, I'll close out.  I should get there in about four to six months.
From now on I'll just try to keep uploading to Alamy and phase out of MS altogether.

Good luck!

Im somewhere around that mark with something less than 3000 images , added 1000 new ones in the last few weeks but my downloads number didn't change , maybe even it went down.

I got 10% of this number with more than 3000 images. I guess I do not have what they are looking for cause with half less on SS I regularly get over $100

I used to have $90-120 a month there. Then I stopped uploading and the number dropped to $80. I have 821 photo at 123rf at the moment.

I have 4,000 + images and make over $100/month there, but my royalties have been stagnant for over a year. 

Yeah, it's nice to get a payout every month, but with 4,000 model released images I am aiming for a bit more than the minimal payout and have been very disappointed I can't grow my income on 123.

I agree with icefront and madelaide - BigStock produces several times the sales for me that 123 does, and sales there continue to grow.  Not sure how 123 keeps its place on the Big 6.
