Updated only real change was StockXpert climbed to 3rd place

SS  46.7%
DT  15.6%


StockXpert   8.5% BME  ;D
FT      8.4%
123   6.7% BME  ;D
BS     6.3%
IS       5.9%

FP      1.4%
CanStockPhoto    0.3%
SPM    0.1%

A couple of Sales at Alamy made it the BME ever overall.

SS every month this year have provided between 40-50% of my income so nothing new there.

BME at 123 was helped by an extended license sale

Ho Yes! Another record month to me to... :)

SS   26,96%  BME  ;D
SX   25,16%  BME  ;D

IS    13,71%

FT    13,32%   BME  ;D
DT      9,89%  BME  ;D  

123rf  8,18%  

BS      1,35%  BME   ;D
CS      0,90%
LO      0,54% 

Every month it’s a competition with SS and SX but SS always win.

I really like SX but I am afraid of the subscription option to the buyers, well he have to wait and see what’s happen.

Sept. Another BME by 18%, mostly thanks to 123 and LO.

1   123  23%  + 175%  BME by a lot. Nice surprise. ELs
2   SS    19%   - 21%   Another disappointing month
3   LO   14%   + 120% BME easy. Another nice one. More ELs
4   IS    13%   + 10%   BME. A steady performer
5   BS     9%   - 18%    Down, but still not bad for BS
6  DT      9%    +9%     Up, but disappointing for a former steady 2nd place
7  FT       5%    - 18%   The most erratic site. All over the place this year
8  SX      4%     +/-       Dead even. Never varies much, so as my total grows the % shrinks
9  CS      2%     -14%   Always an also ran. Used only for keyword help
10 FP      2%    +20%  BME. Wish they would do better.

IS - 27%
SS - 21%
XP - 19%
FT - 12%
DT - 9%

Overall September was BME, helped by two ELs (one at FT, one at SS), income went up by 20% overall.

Here is the breakdown:
SS: 41.1% (BME)
FT: 30.0% (BME)
IS: 26.2%
DT: 2.7% (just joined)
LO: 0.0%

August performance at IS had spoiled me, so this months performance was a bit of a let down, just my 3rd best month overall (given that I am still fairly new).
FT was my best month only income wise, number of sales are still way below what they were in my BME (March). Still it gave some hope after a not so good summer there.

Overall BME:

IS: 50% (BME)
SS: 31% (BME)
FT: 8%
BS: 6%
DT: 5%  (down 60% from August, I have no idea what happened)

Overall I am quite happy, especially since I broke the $500 at SS and got the raise (finally).

September 07 was an interesting month for me. ShutterStock had it's first time ever drop in growth of -10% and it was only for the high growth of my iStock sales that I scrapped in with a +19% BME (which has also been my lowest BME since I commenced with microstock back in May 07). Fotolia continued its slippery fall while 123RF, DT and SXE all had moderately decent sales months and growth.

To be honest I was expecting September to be better as according to what I read this was the month that most people usually experience the biggest growth in sales. For me this thus far remains August where I had a BME of +44%.

However having said that I am glad that iStock took up the slack and helped me get over mark.

All I can say this was record month for me. I only have images on Fotolia so far. I earned 400% more than in august. And since I am only here since May 2007, I can say I earned more in september than in may, june, july and august all thogether! I hope october will be such as good, if not better! :)

First time I'm posting these stats. I don't have a huge portfolio (all around 70 images).

As usual IS was over half of my income, and for the first time since I started last year, DT had no sales.

IS    64% (65 images)
SS   18% (70 images)
StockXpert    19% (79 images)
DT      0% (77 images)

BME for IS, FT & BigStock. Sales on IS exceeded SS for the first time - I hope this trend continues. This was my best month so far, but one that fell short of expectations.

As a little test I forced myself to not upload anything in September (ok, I gave up at the end around Sept 27 ... :)). As projected SS royalties dropped significantly (~75% of August), DT kept quite stable, IS lost ~12% both in DLs and $.

StockXpert was the absolute loser of the month - WME there, 60% of DLs and 30%(!) of royalties compared to August which is actually less than what I got in April, my very first (and even incomplete) month there.

From the total results the following companies made:
IS: ~38%
SS: ~11%
DT: ~8%
StockXpert: ~4%

Total number of DLs from these 4 sites: ~600. And the missing 39% royalties came from 15 DLs at two local and not-so-micro-stock sites. :) That's why I will never go exclusive anywhere.

A lot of posts where SS is no longer in 1st place and/or had negative growth for the month.  Interesting

A lot of posts where SS is no longer in 1st place

For me SS has never been in the 1st place, not even close to it. Though my IS and SS portfolios are about the same size (~300 pictures) SS never made more than 60% of IS's $. And in a typical month SS is bringing ~40% of IS.

September = BME
Portfolio size IS/SS = 220+/240+

iStock                  41,6 % (BME)
Shutterstock         34,9% (BME, 1 EL)
Dreamstime            9,6%
Stockxpert             9,3% (BME)
BigStock                2,4%
123rf                     2,0%

Shutterstock September revenue was BME after 2 month of decline - but  still not enough to challenge iStock.

LO - not a singe dl, this site is dead for me, no more uploads.

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

Overall earnings are 10% above August, but 11% below July.

BME at StockXpert, 2nd best at BigStock.  IS and DT were more or less stable, FT was better than Aug but still far from BME in July - I miss those EL's!

Stable low earnings in CanStockPhoto, Scan, CS and FP.  First month this year without sales at LO.

Regards,
Adelaide

Sorry forgot FT, which is 5.17%

so not that exciting,  a year ago, when I have 50% less images, still have similar results, so now uploading is a way just try to stay level:(
