Here is a gift from me to you :0

Wow, thank you :)

does it send our data to you, so you can compare our income? :p
I use Microsoft Exel for this :D with chart :D

Looks good but I wouldn't use this because I use too many sites and it is much more fun not knowing what I will make :)

Hey Yuri. Thanks.
Now, can you make one of these for the DOW, NASDAQ, S&P 500, N225 etc?
;)

Great tool, thank you!
Now, I do not have to calculate it on my own every few days. :D

Hi Yuri,
Thanks for the offer. We have been doing this for a long time now with the info of 11 years in stock sales to make these judgements. I would be concerned though sending another photographer my stats for his own data collecting. This is maybe the way some will perceive this, not so much as a gift but as a tool that helps them and you at the same time. Great offer for those that don't track their sales. Thank you for the post.
Best,
Jonathan

Is it possible to use the calculator anonymously, or is the contributor name required? I can definitely see how people, including myself, would be hesitant to send their data to a fellow microstock contributor.

Crestock is not in the list. I knew it, Yuri is the owner and already has all the data ;)

Cool! Thanks!

I just used it anonymously. Even if it is name required you can input some false data first, so he will never know which one is right. :P

Once upon a time, I was released "the projection formula for the end of the month.."
Yuri is now packed in something like that on web, but my formula was not required your name then, right? ::) :*
Many of us did not see the meaning of the formula then, or they did not understand extrapolation of existing data, or just was not pretty packed ... :\

But its a good tool, thank you Yuri...

Guys.... Type in someone else's name or do whatever... We are not storing the data anywhere and I can even see it.

Hahaha.... That was a good laugh. You can add agencies on the last line when you type in an agency.

Given the rate my downloads are decreasing this year, will it tell me when I get into negative equity? :'(

Hi Yuri,
Thanks for getting back so quick. I appreciate your kindness. Looking through it and hearing your explanations this is a very generous tool to offer all of us. Thank you for your continued efforts to help guide this community and help share in it's growth.
Best,
Jonathan

"I will say that it takes into account historical up days, down days, holidays, weekend stats, site specific stats and more."
Are we to assume that you are basing these extrapolations on your own historical data? Just curious... Seems like there's all kind of differences between your data and other people's data if that is true...

You are right. Yuri is uploading almost every day. You must have regular uploads then, especially on SS to make this tool work.

If I understood correctly it's not only his data.
Anyway, if the pool is large and diversified enough, statistically the differences can fall well within 5% error margin that is cited on the site.

And what is purpose of this tool.
For every agency is the same formula?
Isnt easier to look by yourself in youre income eg 300 bucks in 13then days and you have number 23,07 bucks a perday on that agency and multiply that with number of days at that month and you will get precise prediction of that month at that agency in this case 23,07 x 31 = 715.17$
Make this table in exel or in Numbers on Mac and make sum of all youre agencies, and it will be more precise than simple formula on Yuris web page where if you enter same value for all agencies you give same Month total for every of them.
Maybe I am wrong but I think that income from every agencies fluctuate depending of their own marketing. Because of that we see different results from poll results each month, and in youre personal records if most of you create.

From this kind of graph after 10 days of mont I can make prediction is it will be poorer or richer than previous. Obviously this month will be poorer than last one.

"Bump"
I've been plugging my numbers into this for nearly a month now and I think it works well.
Thanks for this Yuri __ very useful. It is certainly much easier and probably more accurate than the basic division/multiplication of days that I have been doing up to now.
Cheers!

Thanks for the bump, hadn't seen this before. Looks like quite a good little tool, thanks Yuri!

I compared Yuri's projections with iSyndica's analytics and the numbers are pretty close. I think this tool it's good to calculate monthly revenues on istock and SS which are currently missing on iSyndica.
Thanks Yuri for this nice tool.

People this is simple formula, divide current earnings with today's date and you have daily earnings in this month...
Multiply with number of days in this month and you have projection for current month on the last day....
Then compare with last month with percentage and you have today's projection...
You can make this every day, only with different current earnings and today's date...
Yuri's formula has separated weekend's days with some percentage ponder (cca 30 % of average work day)....
That all folks, that is mathematics or basic statistic, nothing more...

^^^ Yes obviously, we know this.
It's a tool __ it does the calculations for you to save you having to do them yourself. That's why it's called 'Calculator' rather than 'Magic Number Machine'.

I've seen this and used it but alas with transportation problems i haven't been taking and uploading much this month so i'm hoping it'll be of use when i get back to taking photos.
