My march is doing very well and its still in the mid.

Great pickup from shutterstock. Getting good single and others on daily basis now.
Fotolia/Adobe is still same for me, no high and no low.
iStock, don't know what they are cookin
123rf very bad month in here
All other agencies, very bad

But I am overall happy with shutterstock and fotolia :)

i have the impression that some algorithm prevents me from selling more and more...th months started great plus 40% in the first day compared to febraury then 6 appalling days nothing sold after 14.00, while the three months before i sold practically only from 14 to 24....i understand something change but here it seems so programmed. anyway keep uploading the lot of things i still have to upload.
being positive,. i'm increasing other side of business so micro will be only a side kicks dollar

I can only hope for the second half of the month to be as good as the first. Then it will be a pretty nice BME!
Anyway, being better than last March is almost a certainty.

DLs down everywhere - horrible.  SS doing OK for money due to more high-value sales than usual - lots of nice SODs, plenty of ODs, plus clips and even an EL.  FT OK for DL numbers but most are base-level subs so not much money.  If big sales continue on SS it will make up for losses by the others - here's to hoping.

Sales were good during January and February (including one video sale on SS.) So far, March has been pretty poor overall.

If you do 0 at DT, is your BME $10 at SS?

These kinds of threads are useless without figures

A best month or doing very well could be $10,000 $1,000 or $5 depending on the contributor's perspective

SS all the same, FT - breathing again after a couple of months in coma, although not as it used to be. BS - still dead, 123 - suddenly a terrible month after sales started to grow in the last few months. IS - no idea either as even the DeepMeta 2 doesn't let me to log in anymore and see my frigging balance :D

I only have a few dozen images on DT, compare to thousands on SS, FT and 123RF. DT has never been a big seller for me, so I don't waste my time uploading there. They also reject a good percentage of my work, so I stopped uploading.

If you want an idea of how much I make on SS, it's 4 figures per month.

23 working days and not too many holidays round the world. It should be BME for many people.

For footage.

BME at Shutterstock already - unusual surge this last week.
Pond5 slow.
VB slow.
Fotolia slow.

I guess sales do move around. Big marketing effort by Shutterstock or just the random nature of things? Who knows...

Video here:

For me March always seems to be the final hangover month from the Christmas and New Years holidays before things get going solidly in April, this year following that trend but doing better overall than last year. Overall I'm very optimistic about everything, not sure why though. Maybe because I'm out shooting a lot more content than before.

Its pure marketing efforts, I see ads everywhere including social media. They have also introduced a new plan for buyers which is working well for ss, its a good sign.
For me BME crossed on 18th March :)

My sales on SS don't seem to pick up, don't know why.

Other agencies are pretty stable.
