Best month in stock sales so far, which is good, past 2 or three didn't meet expectations.. here's to a swing up in sales!

A record month where earnings grew by 42%, but fell just short of my target. SS sales levelled off, but the gap was made up by IS and DT, where sales more than doubled. FT still lags far behind - I find FT cumbersome enough that unless something miraculous happens I will be dropping it in favor of BigStock or StockXpert.

Hi guys,

Here's my first overview (started on 11/01/2007):

SS: 114.25$
IS: 39.40$
FT: 34.32$
BigStock: 23.50$
DT: 22.65$
123RF: 18.51$

First month on SS, hence the 'high(er)' score. I'd love to put more pics on IS, but due to the beginner restrictions only 64 online.

But I'm happy if it continues like this. Compared to Jan and Feb each revenue on has grown.

Cheers,
Kris

March is in the bag.....
site      Quantity pix       % Total $
                  sold                   
SS              75%            SS     45.6%
DT                8.3%         StockXpert   19.1%
BigStock              6.4%         DT     15.5%
StockXpert              5.7%         BigStock   13.3%
LO               2.0%          LO       3.2%
123             2.0%          IS        2.0%
IS                  .6%         123      1.3%   

 Just got on IS,  minimal 'folio
 SS maintained top simply due to pure volume of sales at 25 cents.

In terms of $ per shot...   StockXpert was best return,   with IS second.
....I've got some high hopes for IS....

  NLS, FP,  USPS  and FT zero sales.   FT account inactive at this time.

Let's hope April will be better.     8) -tom

I just signed up with other sites and am quite surprised with the numbers.  I have 133 photos on Dreamstime, 14 (since mid-month) on Shutterstock, and just 1 on Istock... 

SS - 38.5%  (half month with only 14 photos!!!  WOW)
DT - 37.5%
FT - 14.7%
IS - 5.3%  (just accepted, only 1 photo live)
LO - 2.9%
BS - 1%

I think this tells me that I better spend a little time this week at Istock and Sutterstock...

Site Jan Feb Mar Apr
IS 32% 35% 25%
DT 13% 18% 23%
FT 18% 11% 10%
StockXpert 15% 14% 15%
CanStockPhoto 4% 6% 1%
BigStock 7% 2% 9%
123 4% 3% 4%
FP 5% <1% 14%
LO 1% 2% 3%
IV 0% 7% 0%
Scan 0% <1% 1%

FP had an extraordinary result due to the sale of a low res version of a high-priced image and one EL.  IS $ was slightly lower than last month.  DT had a good rise with the new prices, but lately the 25c subs have been getting more common.  No EL in FT this month...

Overall earnings increased in 18%.

Regards,
Adelaide

Still early days for me, and I only have one site with more than 100 photos on line. However a 33% increase in total photos on all sites this month has seen an increase of 78% in income without any el's so hopefully things are going in the right direction.

On income alone my stats are

SS        44%
IS         30%
BigStock      10%
DT        10%
FT         5%
123       1%

I was rejected by StockXpert this month with "these are not the kind of photo's we are presently looking for" so I suppose I'll try them again.

March was the best month for me, thanks to a couple of $50 ELS in FT, overall slightly ahead of Oct 06, so finally the earnings have turned the corner in terms of declining earnings in the last 3-4 months.

SS         26.95% a good increase due to recent upload
DT         22.70% good month
IS          17.90% a slower month
FT         17.87% a solid month due to 2 ELS
BigStock         7.10% slower month
StockXpert         7.48% better month
