Super stuff, you and @steveheap are my must reads at the start of every month. A more pragmatic realistic look vs the more pushy "buy my course" kinds on YouTube and facebook

SS: RPD $0.65
by this pace, my AS revenue will surpass SS for the first time in 12 years

I was away for the past few weeks, and I was able to summarize Sep 22 only today.

It was a good month:

Despite the biggest EOTM dud this year (felt like it anyway), still ended up having my BME overall in October exceeding my previous best month in July 2022 by 24%. Had a BME on Pond 5, a second-best month on Shutter and a second-best month on iStock. Adobe recovered pretty well toward the EOTM.

Good month for me, with SS leading the pack, closely followed by AS:

On SS, November was a poor month (3rd worst this year) for revenue and the worst month of the year for downloads.

On AS, November was the best month of the year for downloads and 3rd best for revenue. AS revenue and downloads January to November are ahead of the full year numbers for 2021.

On SS there is a definite fall off in downloads in the second half of the year. The average for July - November is down 11% compared to the average for January to June. On the plus side, revenue from January to November is ahead of full year revenue for 2021.

I am not sure if RPD mean something My RPD with Alamu is $ 29 but I sold only 2 images in November, will be good if I sold fifty images with same RPD :) or 50% smaller

I finally got around to adding up my sales including the little earners and late reporters (I'm talking to you Getty - and I noticed Feb and Mar sales there were lower than what I had earlier recorded - <1$, but what's up with that?).

In any case it was an ok month - just a few $ above the new (much lower) normal now that sales and or prices and % I get have fallen pretty much across the board and I am off of SS and essentially off of iS (I did leave a few images there - mostly ones that weren't accepted elsewhere).

It doesn't inspire me to work on new stuff, but I am hoping that the brutal hemorrhaging of income is mostly over - until AI generated content takes over or the bean counters decide that it is best to prop up their quarterly numbers on the backs of the contributors again. In any case there I have only about 30% left to go from the peak (for me in 2012). Too bad inflation has prices for everything but stock photos about 30% higher in the same time frame.

I earned not much. It is the first time that I could not withdraw money from SS.
