My God!!  IS; is really cashing in, best report for years!! I cant believe it!  maybe they've stolen the SS formula. 47 pages of sales!  what . has happened?

Can I ask how to read the sales from IS, I only see some chart that confused me.I don't see any "page" of sales  :-\

Back on topic:

May: 4111 downloads
May 2016: 5047

Since November last year I dropped about ~ 1000 downloads per month.

But stil positive. Earnings are steady again and I'm trying to climb back to my old numbers. I already have about 450 downloads per month from new images since the 'November Crash of 2016'  :P

New files almost don't get a dl for my port.Can i ask how many new files you uploaded in a month or week? thanks

My question is if u uploaded such huge numbers of vectors could help to improve sales?in my shoes, new files almost can't sell a dime :( and my sales constantly drop 10-20% compared with the same period of last year even I uploaded regularly like I had done in last year ,which makes me very frustrated  :(

Well did some number crunching last night and it may be time to cull a few agencies that are not making me any money:

All of the below are not performing - with a port of 2158 images since Feb 2015 I have had 0 sales.

Crestock
Panther
VEER
PIXTA
Alamy
StockFresh
Feature Pics
Zoonar
Yaymicro

The below are in risk of being exterminated - sales across all of these are 42

DreamsTime
CanStock
DepositPhotos
Pond5
Photodune

The below are making a dent and will be saved - to be honest I will probably only submit to these sites now:

ShutterStock
BigStock

Fotoalia

On the ther hand - it could be Port has no Commercial Value, but who knows..

But your sales on IS got only a bit more 10 dls, if those subs save you?How about subs working on IS? How do you upload your 1506 files into IS in few months?I just fiind you registered there in Jan this year.  ::)

sub drops about 25%, and almost no el for near 4 months...what happen ??????

I finally had one el a few days ago but mostly like your experience. No el's, very low OD's, and subs about 50% of normal (50 ish a day to 25 ish). As I have mentioned in previous threads I now find myself praying that I check stats and have a $80 SOD and maybe a video sale or two.  I NO LONGER expect big sub days, nor do I expect good OD's. The trend has been too long for it to be a search thing. It's the new norm until the next new norm happens.....and it is coming.

Yes, the trend begun from Feb this year and not seeing it back to the wonderful place like last year.For me, last year is great!!

Norway? Massive taxes and benefits, from what I heard. I'll be heading for Greece in due course. $1,000 goes a long way in Greece.

Finland. Not quite as expensive as Norway, but on-par with Sweden. Massive taxes (good benefits tho).
Average salary 3109 euros/month (about $4200)
Median salary 2774 euros/month (about $3800)

To live like an average Joe and pay for equipment and pension I would need to sell stock images for at least $5000 per month, and I don't seem to be able to do it. But if I moved to Poland or Estonia I could do it instantly.

Greece average wage $962 last year. And the sun shines (though never at midnight!).

Really? I love Aegean sea ;D

The month that I make $3K just from Shutter I will officially retire from my day job!  8)

where do you live now?state?I can support my own life with 2k in here..but only me..no family kids wife ...etc

21
maybe 2 yrs ago , some exclusive vector guy in IS can easily make it with less 300 files and $4-5 k  per month i guess but now its getting hard 8)

I have a massive 8 day gap 15-22 Feb; are they finished and I had just a weird port blackout, or are others seeing this?

then i have a huge gap from 01-31 Jan with zero dl, hehehe, Feb is also a huge gap with 1 dl so far, hehehehe  ;D

24
why don't they(IS) just show us the detail of sales per days like other sites did?????that would be the most honest way and we contributors would never doubt you like these now ;)

25
one big question, did that great guy Yuri get the claw back from IS?hehehehehe ;D ;D ;D
If so, how much is it?10k?or 100k?hehehehe ;D
