Worst Month Ever so far, after a great May/June.

Not sure just hired three models for a hospital and hiking shoot so busy keywording those right now. I have two more shoots before I head to Canada next week for two more weeks of stock video shooting, aerials, water sports, city life and such. So I guess July is fine will count the numbers at the end!!

If you can predict the end results of July with 27 days left I will hire you as my stock broker for the rest of this year!  8)

Most of my sales are non US. Still, maybe the weekend/Independence day combo is a perfect storm for lack of sales.

July might as well be over now. Y'all should be focusing on how your December sales have been going.

5 subs in the last 7 days, haven't just hit the wall I've exploded into a thousand pieces! Even DT is beating SS by a factor of 10 and I didn't think I'd ever write that.

I just seem to be getting subs lately ...for me recently SS has developed a habit of picking up toward the end of the month I'm hoping the awful start is related to July 4th. Meanwhile I had a bme on Dreamstime something I thought I'd never say again!!!

I also had a bme in June at Dreamstime:) although for me it means 12$ (with 23 sales), but before that I had over 2 months of 0 sales there and downloads started to come only after I wrote to the support :P

How many images do you have in your port?? You often complain about zero days - did you have better times with SS?

How is your August?

Very good question.
Actually it gave me a very good idea.
It will be great to organize "Contributors lottery" like this:
Every contributor will pay 1% of his monthly income (or some small fixed ammount in case of 0 income) to the lottery fund.
By doing that he/she gets right to compete in a game "guess your next month's income on agency XY"
Contributors with 0 sales in previous months who predict 0 sales in next month will be disqualified (no money back).
Winner will be the person with the most accurate income prediction.
No other rules will be applied, everything is allowed including buying of your opponents images.

p.s. Off course that I am not serious, but I see this as an only opportunity to raise my monthly income from stock  ::)
