I ask this as my previous best ever month was April last year. I had only been uploading for a couple of months, and have uploaded less in the last 12 months than some people seem to manage in a week.

Last month I almost managed to beat my previous best, but uploaded for me a reasonable increase in  images, some sites I now have over 200 images! However now 12 months on from my previous best, and without uploading a single file I have managed to beat my figure from last April and with nearly 2 weeks to spare.

Do most people find that this is the best time of year too?

The only prediction I can give is that during summer holidays and over Christmas there will be a lull, other than that it all depends on your portfolio.

But this only seems to apply to Microstock, I've been doing traditional stock for years and the only time there's a lull in sales is on public holidays.

This April has been slow for me so far. And my sales also dropped off in April 2007 and 2006. I don't know why.

In April 2006 there was a thread on SS about slow April sales (and there is another thread like it this year). I remember Rinder saying that his April sales were slow too, and speculating that the cause was tax season in the US.

Summer has been good for me, in spite of the slowdown some people experience then. My best month has been November, probably because I have had Christmas images which did well.
