What, no earning thread for June yet, and here we are already July 2nd?  Guess I'll start off. 

I am down ONLY 6% on last June, which is better than I usually get now days.  June up 9% on May, which never happens. 

I had a good month on SS cuz of some big SOD sales, and also those bunch of .38 sales at the end of the month.  Did better than expected on 123 and DP also. 

Istock has tanked.  I mean really fell off the cliff.  No surprise there to anyone with a big port on IS, I think. 

FT down a bit.  This worries me after the big Adobe announcement.  Maybe its too soon for the Adobe effect to kick in?  Anybody see a big uptick on FT yet?

Solid month for me helped by large SOD from SS. Fotolia doing very well and Istock pretty good too. The minnows were all poor to non-existent sales - signs of polarisation but also cos I haven't got round to uploading on the ones where its a slog - concentrating on higher value sites.

June was about 200% of May on SS. I increased my portfolio size by over 50% in that period, so the increase was mostly linear. I'm only on SS at the moment and I'll be uploading my portfolio to other sites in the next couple months.

I'm expecting July to have a slight increase over June, but not by much this time.

Lots of the sites slightly up on last year, but nothing can outweigh the massive ongoing drops in IS sales. Also the trend for smaller average RPD continues as all the sites push more subs and partner deals.

As I have been reviewing RPD some could be interested to know, my RPD was 37c in 2006 increasing to a height of 98c in 2009. Since then it has steadily decreased to around the 80c mark. I also sell vectors so not sure how that stacks up for a purely photography based port. Has anyone else run the numbers? Was 2009 really the peak or is it just me?

Overall:

June 2015 up 3% vs June 2014 (but port size up about 30% in this period... disappointing)
June 2015 up 2% vs May 2015 (not bad... usually June is worse than May)

Looks like I started later than you, so I can't say 2009 was the peak cuz i was still building my port, but my highest rpd was in 2011 when it was $1.14.  Now it is .83, so I am seeing the same trend as you.

In my case it is also the loss of of on demand at IS that makes the most difference.
