My sales jumped about 50% this month suddenly.  Anybody seeing similar sales increase this month?

My ranking stayed about the same, but little better.

Not especially......unless you have a large portfolio or income I wouldn't read too much into one months figures.

Not really a jump for me, but a continuation of the upward graph of the last few months. Another BME.

Yes, Fotolia is indeed up by a big amount this month. AdobeStock/FT is on its way to the top spot.

I had a good month at Shutterstock but Fotolia did much better. It's been great since Adobe took over and I like their reviewers much better also :)

Yes, up about 50%.  We will see if it continues.

I am experiencing a bump in sales at FT. Sales had been going down gradually since I no longer submit new images. However October sales are up about 25% over September.

I think it's clear that Adobestock is accelerating these days.  Most creators use Adobe softwares.  So, it's understandable.  It will get much better from here for Adobestock/Fotolia in my opinion.

while we're talking of new ventures,
is anyone getting any money with the new flickr?

as they projected a target market of " licensing niches like mobile photography, since the number one camera on the site is an Apple iPhone."

are we seeing a rush of mob photographers like yuri predicted  ;D

No noticeable change for me on FT. Actually 15% down this month compared to September.
People reporting a "jump" - are we talking regular sales or is it due to ELs?

My revenues were up 50% over September. I had quite a few credit sales. I hope it continues :)

For me FT has been up significantly every month since May.  Before that it was flat for like two years.  Now it's 4x what it was before May (but I only have a small portfolio there and it's always been one of my bottom sites--looks like that may change).

Yep! BME on FT!
Nice 37% revenue growth, nice RPD!
A clear #2, shaming IS both on revenue and on RPD (see attached).

I  don't never EVER get ELs on FT. I've had some above average days on FT this month, but most days are still pretty average.  And I seriously doubt that I will have ever again a BME there.  Would love to be wrong about that tho.  C'mon Adobe, Papa needs a new car...!

Noticeable rise in revenue since August, 3 BME in a row.

Still only 1/3 of SS but looking good.

Not that much, but about 25 - 30% down. October, however, best month since Adobe took over, but mostly from some ELs :(
On the other hand, October has always been the best month of the year.
