OK July is over so I post my final figures

SS 46.3% BME
DT 16.0% BME*
FT 11.5% BM2008

StockXpert 6.8% BM2008
IS    6.4%

123 5.8%
BS   4.6% WM2008

FP   2.8% BME

CanStockPhoto 0.1%

overall BME for microstock

* Highest number of DLs at DT ever but lots of subscriptions.

BME best month ever
BM2008 best month 2008
WM2008 worst month of 2008

Strange how differently the sites performed on the last day of the month some sites virtually no sales but the busiest day of the month at others

Great month.  After a very slow first 15 days, I uploaded constantly in the second half of the month and pulled out an overall record month.

Total:  $378 (BME)

SS 33%
IS 28%  BME
DT 18%  BME
BigStock 7%  BME
123RF 6%  BME
FT 4%
StockXpert 4%
Other 1%

iStock was quite slow for almost the entire month.  But they delivered me 2 EL's and a flurry of sales in the last 3 days of the month, and that put them into 2nd place with a BME.

It was a good month, especially for summer, although only at some sites. Overall income this month was up 3% over June and 33% over last July (2007)

IS      29% (up slightly)
SS     26% (up 13% but had 2 ELs)
FT     14% (down 17% -  would have been down 44% were it not for 2 ELs this month)
DT     10% (flat - would have been down 25% without an EL)
StockXpert   10% (up 6%)
BigStock     8%
123     3% (down 41%)

Not a bad month, my second best (since March), would have been a lot better, but I uploaded only 10 new photos at the beginning of the month, and that shows especially on Shutterstock.

Shutterstock:  27.3% (down 27%)
IstockPhoto:   37.1% (up 27%) BME
Fotolia:           13.6% BME (thanks to 2 ELs)
Dreamstime:     8.7%  (this site is starting to be consistent for me)
StockXpert:      8.5 %
123RF:              3.2%
BigstockPhoto: 1.7% (no EL's this month, this one is really slow)

Time to upload something :)

Down about 15%, mostly due to the fact that I only uploaded a few files at the beginning of the month (still second BME).

SS 44,84
IS 17,45 BME
StockXpert 13,18
DT 8,49 BME
FT 7,35
123RF 7,02
BigStock 1,68

Other observations:
- lack of uploads really show in SS earnings, down about 30%
- IS is really going in the right direction, love the vector sales
- pretty bad month at fotolia, I think the search engine was changed again
- even though July was first month that was not BME I'm still satisfied with earnings. With almost no work I earned quite a nice sum :D

Have to edit the holiday pics and finish some illustrations.

PS: No earnings poll this month?

Here are my figures, all compared to July 2007.

Total: Up 31%

SS 29% down 15%
IS 15% up 1%
DT 15% up 82%
FT 14% up 59%
StockXpert 7% up 48%
FP 6% no sales July last year  BME
123 5% up 193%  BME
BS 4% up 73%
Cre 2% up 1600%
Scanstock 1% up 100%
SV 1% no sales July last year
Canstock 1% up 0%

SS is very disappointing, particularly considering their recent increase in payouts. That means that the decline is actually much steeper, but this seems to be the long term trend. DT had a very good last half of July after a disappointing start with many subs. FT is also showing solid performance, but the real winners are 123rf and FP. Particularly FP is interesting, since the sales there have been spread out throughout the month.

I just filled out the new earnings poll, and the RPI Statistics.  I don't think results start showing up for the RPI statistics until there are at least 10 entries for an agency.

2nd worst month this year. However, by far not as bad as I expected. I only uploaded 5 files to SS and less than 10 to FT. Haven't uploaded to IS and DT since April. FT was again my best earner and the new month started with an EL.

Breakdown:
Overall:      -6%

FT: 42,3% (a bit down to June)
IS: 32,6% (down to June)
SS: 18,3% (up from June)
DT: 6,8% (bit down from June)

I meant the poll about how much we made from stock in July, just like there was one for June:

My microstock numbers for July:
http://www.pixelsaway.com/C911796005/E20080801094202/index.html

I had 17% earnings growth in July, but also a major shift between main players: IS went down and SS went up and took the lead.

IS+SS are providing 78% of my income.

I took a week of vacations from microstock in July - paddling, racing and shooting just for fun.

IS 38.79% (almost a BME)
SS 29.10% (WME)
DT 14.28%
FT 10.58%
123 4.52% (WME)
StockXpert 3.64% (WME)
SV 2.78% (BME)
BigStock 2.14% (tied another WME month)
CS 1.43%
CanStockPhoto 1.07%
FP, MP, SR & YAY: 0.00%

Overall, sales in July were 19.7% lower than June.

thoughts:
SS dropped quite a bit, I'll attribute it to summer vacations.
Sales on StockXpert sank like a brick in a swimming pool. SV almost beat them...
Sales picked up a little bit on SV--hope this trend continues.

SS: 46% - BME
IS: 38% - BME
DT: 9% - down 10% (but BME on DL's - June had more EL sales)
FT: 4%
BS: 1.8%

Overall BME by a big margin, and broke the $1k in a month mark for the first time :)

IS 27% (WM2008)
DT 19% (BME)
StockXpert 16% (BME)
SS 15%
FT 14%
123 6% (BME)
BS 2%

I  haven't uploaded many recently, and i have begun to realize that SS doesn't really do very well for the long term.  The BME's at StockXpert at DT (both quite a leap ahead of usual) were a nice surprise.

1300-1500+ images approved on most sites.

BigStock - down 50% from last month
StockXpert - a few dollars below last month
Alamy - 1 RF sale more $$ than a lot of my micros make per month
