Nice growth at iStock and 123rf, not so great at SS, StockXpert (Fotolia still dropping) while Dreamstime steady. Overall still a BME but need to shoot more stock next month to pick SS up.

LO 0%

Overall revenue +10% (BME)

October was only my second "full" month in the MicroStock world. (Apart from DT where I had less than 50 pictures sitting there for a few years)

Overall I'm really happy, IS and StockXpert were slow but they should pickup momemtum as I get more pictures accepted there. Every site listed were BME  ;D   .... not very hard on second month  ;)

Here's the breakdown:

SS    63.1%
DT    9.6%
MP   8.7%
123   6.7%
FT   4.9%
FP   1.7%
BigStock   1.2%

All others   4.1%
(IS, LO, CanStockPhoto, CR, Albumo, RedBubble and ScanStock)

BME for SS & IS, 2nd straight month that IS produced more than SS, and my overall BME (15% income increase).
I took the last half the month off, and SS sales fell dramatically because of it.

CS <1% <1% <1% <1% 1% 2% <1% <1% 2% <1% 1% % %

Overall earnings are 13% above Sept, with a remarkable 33% increase in IS, after months of retraction.

BME at StockXpert (two BMEs in a row - let's hope subscription doesn't kill that).  Slight increase in DT, slight decrease in FT (but latest week looked positive).  BME also at 123RF and Scanstock, although these are very low earners for me.

Stable low earnings in CanStockPhoto and CS.  Unusual no-sales month in FP, while LO returned from the dead and Albumo just started selling. 

Regards,
Adelaide

SS = 30% (1 EL)
IS = 23% (3 referral bonuses)
DT = 12%
FT = 12% (BME) (1 EL)
StockXpert = 12% (BME)
BigStock = 5%
LO = 3% (BME)
123RF = 3%

Overall down about 6% from previous BME in May.  Earnings have remained fairly steady since March without any significant increases or decreases, except in July.

What I found interesting is how DT, FT and StockXpert all came in at 12% of my total earnings this month.  LO also came back with a vengence by almost tripling last month's earnings.  I also submit to CanStockPhoto, FP, and Crestock, but I don't include them in my overall earnings, since I haven't received many payouts from them.

Overall about 50% increased earnings, to previous BME.
30% increase of Microstock earnings, 19% because of Alamy earnings.

Increased earnings and BME for IS, DT, FT, StockXpert, CS, 123RF
 ,less than BME: SS,PM, BS and LO.Non the less good month on SS (Probably month with most dls)

IS did a big jump despite having already very high earnings last month.

Great month, with surprising results.

Hope the trend goes on :)

You can use excel, or what I use, Google Spreadsheets. It's free and works just as good as excel.

you can write a formula like this

=B6/C10*100

just type that in one of the boxes.. but change the values to this
B6 = the box location of the total of that particular microstock site
C10 = the box location of your total earnings

Thanks for sharing those numbers with us Andresr.  Interesting numbers and not perhaps what most people would have guessed.

Clearly you have scope for a massive increase in income from iStock if you choose to do so.

Given your comment on a different thread of 'earnings over $20,000' it is encouraging to see how much money can be made at Shutterstock for those who are prepared to make the effort.  I still see comments from photographers who 'refuse to sell their work for a pittance of 30c'.......
