I thought I would start the topic for November sales. Sadly, due to poor sales on Shutter my November looks to be worse that what I made even compared to 2014/2015 years. I am sure there will be newbie's claiming BME but I wonder how the veteran's are doing?

Everywhere else is fairly average for me. I think Adobe may well be giving SS some serious competition at last.

it's n surprise ..now you can find any files you want free ...is not a surprise sales are decreasing.....only released images still have a   good market cause those free sites front have   model release and so buyer can be scared o use those files, but for example holiday images like christmas or new year, go to unsplash...and search...there are images of very good to great quality, stocksy style, for free..that's it

Something is without doubt wrong with SS!!  just spoke ta a partner in a factory, freaking 350.000 files and they are down 60% so far in November!!....its almost surreal, bizzare how things have changed just during the last year.

for starters the month is barely more than 2/3 done. also how can things be the same and down 60%? It seems about the same as Oct for me except a few more big sales at Alamy, but the obese female has not sung yet so I don't really know. So, a lot less than during the good years (2011 - 2015) but things haven't fallen off any new cliffs.

Well for me its a projection based on sales so far so yes there's hope but it has gone down dramatically for me  whether its a trend or just one very bad month for me time will tell. I doubt very much that sales across the board have tanked more like the latest algorithm changes have hit some hard.

November has always been kind to me and this one is no different.

Not so good everywhere.

Adobe just a little down.
But Shutterstock is a real disaster: 50% of my usual monthly average, and 25% of my 2015, 2016 and 2017 Novembers average
Probably it will be the lowest November of these 5-6 last years

But all can happen during the last week, the worst and the best.

When distributors, aggregators and " factories" are way, way down!  thats when its time to start worrying! since they are cared for and looked after!

It depends. If they end up competing on price then we are lost.

2 sales this morning on Alamy for $120 and $22 may just about salvage my month.

In any case, it seems that the last week of every month is when there's usually proportionally the most sales (in my case)...

shuttersubs....tens of tens of tens of sub only...never happened, maybe ss is favoring ss with packages or special offer.

Yes but in this case I recon its a general drought!  I think next QR we are in for a nasty surprise!

ss is earning money..simply put there are more and more files and more nd more desperate contributors especially coming from russia and ukraine who upload zillions of files and the cake is simply spread...zero entry barrier and low cost make this possible.  micro apart one rare case i'd  say 100 200 big contributor will be just an hobby for all the rest.
