Title: Your Single Best Day Ever
Post by: Giveme5 on December 15, 2016, 19:36
Over the years Iíve seen folks, some actually showed me their sales, make some big money in single day.  My personal best is only $240 for a single. I am still waiting for my big dayÖ 8)

Is this SS only or also other agencies? My highest sale was $200 gross ($100 net) at alamy for a pills on a white background. Have this same photo at all MS agencies I upload...At SS it was $60 SOD.

Does this include buyouts? Had a couple of them over years from 123rf in the four figure range.

My best day was on Shutterstock and was in excess of $500, (as opposed to yesterday, which was less than $20, and I have no words to describe how depressed I am).

I once netted $300 on an Alamy sale, but that was years ago and for me these days are long gone. Presumably I had a good iStock day that day too, as that was how things were then.

Forgetting  about the Good Old Days would seem to be the best way to keep sane.

some nice days!

Yes, it includes all sites combined.  This is the positive part of our business that we dream will happen to us on any given day.  :)

Time for some bragging ;)
On April 28 this year I had 4 sales at Alamy, together netting $2,531.24

Happens only once in ten years, though

no bragging at all! I assume they cleared? I seem to get a lot of refunds on this site...

I once had a request for a buy-out of one of my vector illustrations, netting me a four figure number.

My biggest non-buyout sale was a Single & Other sale on SS which netted me $128.

26 November 2008: 450.22 Dollars

I have had days with more, if I get a lump sum for a month or so from someone. But this was my highest for a single day. Thank you istock.

$262,5  (my part) for a single sale on 500px when they were still paying 70%. Other than that a $200 sale ($100 for me) on Alamy.

3 dollars and 30 cents.

$330 from SS, IS, FT, 123, DP, DT combined on May 13, 2016.

Not including private sales to companies and galleries, accounting for a lot more than this, on payment day.

Several thousand $, but then I woke up and when I went to check the stats, these earnings were no longer there, unfortunately.

Other than that, quite a few times in the range 250-500, I don't sum up daily earnings usually, too many places.

Across the 7 sites kept track of by Microstock Analytics looks like around the $800 mark. It was was early this month when FL gave us all those misreported sales over a couple of days.

Wow well done, was there a couple of really big sales or are you averaging somewhere in this region anyway?
Title: Re: Your Single Best Day Ever
Post by: Justanotherphotographer on December 18, 2016, 05:20
It could be interesting to say the number of sales too. My $800 day was 642 sales on those sites, so not at all unusual for this time of year and actually less than the day before. Those FL sales just had a higher rpd than usual.

Very nice!
But does it mean that all 22 sales were made that day, or it was Getty monthly payday?

$25.65 from a total of 2356 files online. Fairly happy with that day.

I've never bothered totalling every site day to day but the $127.50 4K sale at SS this month and the EL at 123 on the same day must have pushed the total to around $200 I guess. I've no idea why the royalties were that high when 4K apparently costs $130 but it's nice to be able to say I earned $200 whilst sleeping off a hangover...

Yes, on the same day as the topic ;)

I did $600 (3 similar videos for $200 each) plus perhaps a handful more from other sites.

a few times I sold 30 or so videos in 1 day (sports videos).
