Welcome back to another detailed monthly report during these increasingly strange and desperate times! August proved to be a terrible month but can be somewhat forgiven for traditionally being a holiday month, as well as everything else thats going on.

Let's see how I did in September...

Yes thanks for the share - Your shutterstock portion is high above the other agencies, just shows differences between different photographers as I always get equal amounts from shutterstock, istock and Adobe at around $80 per agency (each have 3000 photos each), its fairly consistent for me.

Alex, Re Alamy. I vaguely remember you outsourced keywording to a third party. Could that be the reason for poor performance of your portfolio?

Hi Tpack,

That's a good point. I'm keywording generally for all stock sites and the way they expect keywording for Alamy is different (and a bit of a mystery to be honest), hence the relatively low CTR.

I've used a keywording service before but was only for a few images and clips.

Highly recommend Clemency Wright if you have premium images that you wish to keyword and don't have much time. As for run of the mill micro images, there isn't enough ROI imo.
