5 video sales for less than $20 is sad.  It used to be nearly $150 for 5 video sales.

I had a horrible week - like an xmas-new years week. 11 dl position 25900 (I'm usually around 15000) just under 3300 mostly LCV images.

Whow, very impressive!!!

Single artist, or team production/family if I may ask?

Congratulations on all the hard work.

I find it encouraging that many people have good rankings as a single artist.

Gives me hope I can still rebuild a full time income from stock.

That is really amazing.

I hope you make it into the top 100!

my jouney will use ai. I am beginning to understand the appeal of midjourney, especially for people, not yet for illustrations

now i need to learn how to generate fresh faces, getting the same models as everyone else

yes really impressive! :)
and how long have you been a contributor in Adobe Stock? and how much content do you have in your portfolio if I may ask?

if you make AI content you would sell a lot of it because you have excellent exposure,so it is much more likely that you will sell everything and therefore also AI.

However,I understand you,this AI content is a double-edged sword,on the one hand it is better to make it but on the other it can result in a waste of time,it is certainly better to make real content.

Nice, what's your weekly earning with this position?
1k USD or more?
Would be interesting to know how the earnings are distributed among the top sellers.

How big is your portfolio? Would expect min. 30k images and videos.

Not a million miles away. 20k images and sales are distributed across my port not just a handful of top sellers. Ive been doing this type of work since 2010 probably 2013/14 with Adobe / Fotolia. No AI in port.

Thanks for the reply,it's interesting to know. :)

I think that from now on I will focus more on real content and much less on AI,I don't have much AI content for sale,but I can already see that it doesn't sell much,even because I don't have a good exposure yet,since my best weekly rank ever was 3210,which only happened once.

with AI there is too much competition and contents are easily replicable by others,and then the technology will improve and it will be even simpler.

I think that AI content was easier to sell until December,now it's already becoming different,so in a year it will probably be much worse.

The problem is not so much the money spent on Midjourney and other things for AI,because the money can be made again,but time,that is the most important resource that no one can ever give back!

I learned early on that if anyone is serious about making a career from this business, they should follow one simple rule. Do not divulge or give away details of what works for you including images that sell well. You have to treat it as a business and businesses do not provide, "Secrets of their success" to help their competitors take money from them. It sounds harsh but ultimately it will serve you well. Sorry if this sounds nasty but it's hard enough in this line of work without shooting yourself in the foot.

That said, I do enjoy teaching so when I retire, I would like to teach one or two people about how I did things. Not so much for money etc, just because I like the idea of passing something on.

AI or not AI, well... for me it wasn't so much a question of right or wrong, just what's right for me.

Well... you could be the first! You mean, you aren't one of those guys selling a "How I make five BILLION dollars a day on autopilot in my underwear, while only working 30 seconds sipping a cappucino - and 29 of those seconds are getting caffeinated - and these secrets can be YOURS - for only $29.95!!!" type of people???

Mmm. I do agree - so was in generic terms if you had certain tips, but if not - that is okay too.

So... next question. When do you retire? :D

Top 100 weekly, top 100 lifetime, less than 10k.

@HalfFull

It doesn't seem nasty,it's fully understandable.

I agree,in fact I learned everything I know here on microstockgroup and on the former SS forum,and online from other sources.

I'm not an expert,I've only been in microstock for 6 years,I like to help as little as I can,but I always try to stay generic.

The fact is that for many microstock is not the main source of income so they have no problem sharing.
