Well, it's the first of the month. Here are my earnings percentages for February. IS was helped out by a rare EL. That was my 5th EL since I started there in 2004.

I made almost to the penny the same in Feb as I did in Jan.  And January was not a good month.  I had hoped to see some growth.  

We'll see what March brings.  Traditionally March is my second best month of the year, followed by October.  Having lost StockXpert, which used to be about 8% of my income, and not seeing those sales compensated for elsewhere, I am not too optimistic.  

   ISP   40%
   SS   17%
   DT   13%
   Fot   19%
   BigStock   3%
   StXp   1%
   123   2%
   CanStockPhoto   2%
   Alm   4%

ETA:  Adijr, with stats like those why aren't you exclusive at IS??

That's not too bad bad considering StockXpert and the short month. My numbers were down from January. Hopefully, March is better.

I'm wayyy too new. :)  I don't have time to do much microstock, so i try to do few but quality shots. Seems to work...
Why not exclusive? waiting for my 250, but I have a strong feeling I'll be going exclusive as soon as I can, unless something drastic changes. IS is not only my best, but its consistent...

for more information (i like charts), my istock months:

Seems pretty consistent to me :) All others are very weird.


Why aren't you going exclusive? Isn't 40% close enough to the decision point? :)
And like cthoman said, February is shorter, so technically you made 11% more money per day :)

This was a good month overall. Slightly less (-16%) than previous month which was BME if you look at total revenue. It happened because 123RF did extremely well.  This time it did very good so it grabs second place but it was half of what was in January. I am happy to announce new record from SS after 18 months from the last BME. Also I am observing increase from IS. It's very slow but they keep growing few percent every month and this month it gives them 3rd place. It is mostly because my other top 5 performers did not increase contributions very much. For DT and FT it was OK month so they have to do better than that. StockXpert stop contributing at the beginning of month so in result they dropped from top 5. It does look like transition to ThinkStock has happened yet. I am keeping my fingers crossed, it is good start of the year but you cannot tell if this trend will last.

Code: [Select]
Feb Feb/Jan
SS 63.37% 123.86% BME
123RF 15.34% 40.42%
IS 5.77% 157.75% BME
DT 5.25% 116.42%
FT 4.41% 118.93%
StockXpert 3.03% 50.98%
BS 1.75% 150.00%
CanStockPhoto 1.09% 254.55%
Total 83.88%

Better than Jan or Dec, even without SX. No BMEs although SS was close for only the 3rd time since BME in Oct of 08. With SX being almost 10% of total last several months, not bad.

Is this new "money earnings approach" better idea...!?

That can be solution in case if we all have same size of portfolio... But we have huge spread between sizes of members portfolios... 100 $ is excellent for someone on IS, bud very bad for someone else with much bigger porfolio...

I think that percentage changes for each agency, from last month is better solution...

This is absolute not relative statistic, relative is better for various sizes of portfolios...

February was 8.5% lower than January because of killing StockXpert and rise of ELs in Jan + 2 days less for sale in Feb.

But you need to factor in that Jan 1st and 2nd at least are holidays in most countries, in fact going on to the 5th of 6th for many this year.

This is my stock photography earnings statistic for February 2010. You can find a complete  list of stock photography agencies that I work with  here.



These are for me the best 4 performing stock agencies for February 2010:

1. DepositPhotos
2. Shutterstock
3. Fotolia
4. The 3D Studio

February was a good month with an increase of 31% compared to January. It was the best month ever for Fotolia, Scandinavian Stock Photo, The 3D Studio, and DepositPhotos.

^^^ Wow! You submit to 18 agencies and yet 9 of them collectively contribute barely 7% of your earnings. Do you do that just to get a more colourful pie-chart?

Some of these 9 are sometimes much better (like CanStockPhoto or IS). Other like Zoonar I am not done uploading my portfolio. And Clipdealer or GL are probably will do much better in the future.
