iStockPhoto.com / Re: December stats in

Good month financially.  80% over December 2017  (very bad month) and 30% over November 2018 but 33% of d/ls were for $0.22 or less and 25%+ were at $0.00.  I would be in pretty good shape if I got paid something for the hundreds of shots given away.

Way back in the early days of microstock, iStock, after accepting you into their fold would allow you to submit 15 images PER WEEK.  If you were serious about building your port on line you made sure those images were the very best you could provide.  After several hundred downloads they would raise you to 30, 50, 100 then unlimited uploads.  Now, as you mentioned, everything seems to be accepted.  Is it right? who knows. If you have an image that is very unusual yet a bit out of focus will a buyer use it? perhaps, but I really feel that good quality, interesting, creative images will come out on top in the long run.  Those folks who are uploading everything are doing themselves and their agencies a disservice as are the agencies who are accepting everything that is uploaded.

To get a very rough idea of how you are doing on a real time basis, you can keep track of your daily downloads by marking them down at the same time each day and then multiply them by last months average $per download.  This is not an exact science but it will give you a very rough estimate.
