The month looks ok for me, most of the platforms are working the way they should, and I got a few good news coming from Alamy.

There's only one platform doing significantly worse, it's Bigstock, but it's not like I care about them.

What good news from Alamy?

I got twice my average monthly revenue, and it's coming from a significantly higher amount of sales than usual (meaning it's not only one exceptionally high sale that made the month, as it's something common for Alamy).

Significant slower second half of the month here, on all platforms.
But I had a decent first half with average volume, more OD's than usual, and one pretty exceptional S&O on Shutterstock which are compensating the current drought.

Having a very strong week on AS this week and pretty good on SS.

I have no explanation for why every day this week AS earnings are at least double what they've been the last several weeks. I thought maybe I was one of their featured top sellers this week, but I checked and that's not the case. Maybe they're doing a strong advertising push?

Anyone else seeing very strong sales on AS this week?

Well, the week was good, but generally, the year started "pretty" fine on AS ;) (the blue line is the monthly revenue for AS)

My sales are stronger every month at Adobe every month. I wish the same was true with P5 as they have an even better cut but it is Adobe that is pulling ahead. I have not a single video at SS or Istock so I am really glad that my strategy is working. I hope the transfer of clients and sales from those two low ballers to Adobe and p5 keeps growing steady as it is now, at least for me.

There is an oversupply of images, a Covid crisis and probably also an economic crisis on the way.
No good time for microstock business.
My sales are OK, but don't expect any growth. Its more a declining of sales month to month.
