April was excellent for me! Up 31%, mostly because of Zazzle.

Slightly disappointing 2% down on April 2012. I had hoped for a rebound from the disappointing March but it didn't happen.

IS were 28% down, DT and FT were similar. Fortunately SS were 44% up so made up almost all the ground lost elsewhere. SS, together with BS, are now generating 53% of my microstock income and appear to be getting stronger every month to the detriment of their competitors. Worrying for the future stability of our industry.

Wow! That's a lot. How much of that is BS?

BS are usually 3-4% of my total. SS was at 49% last month.

I think I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum on this. They were only 16% for me. That was still good enough to snag 2nd place though.

Yeah, I never have done amazingly on SS either.  They are consistently under 30% of my earnings.  It's still enough to put them in first place, but only just.  My income seems to be pretty spread out across the sites I contribute to.

     needed  just  31 cent  to  beat  out  march  overall.  I  started  this  year  with  a  goal  of  making  a  payout  somewhere.  Maybe  i'll  be  able  to  do  that.

A good month for me. Not the best ever, but pretty close. Total was $2176, helped by some footage sales of the skyline in Boston (around the time of the bombing), which sold for $90+. Pond5 continues to be good - one of several sites over $100, including 123RF, Dreamstime, Fotolia, Alamy, and, of course iStock.

Here are the headline graphs. More details as normal on my blog.

After a slow start it turned out to be a good month. A sixty dollar OD on SS, an EL on Veer, Fotolia was slower than usual, Dreamstime was normal, a surprise sale on Alamy with the rest of the field full of hope for better times.

47.0% Shutterstock
16.1% Veer
15.5 % Fotolia
06.3 % Dreamstime
05.9 % Alamy
03.0 % 123RF
02.7 % Bigstock
02.2 % Canstock
01.3 % DepositPhotos
00.0 % GLStockimages
00.0 % Stockfresh

Good month for me too! First sales from the personal site and BME at Dreamstime. SS a little bit less than March. Very worried about Alamy and Pond5, no sales this month.

Overall BME.
Shutterstock - BME
iStock - best month since Oct
DT - stable, decent month
123rf - still relatively new, nothing worth talking about

Shutterstock is really taking off, with my 4th BME in a row, and now about 30-50% more than iS, and since I just hit the $3000 mark I should get a bump this month for the higher percentage rate.

3 of my best 4 months overall were this year.  Trends are looking up!

Shutterstock was a bit slower than expected, but iStock sales were strong. Overall things have been moving along acceptably, but I'm probably down 15% from my best months.
