My sales are all over the place this month.  Monday was a decent day with 60+ DLs, and Wednesday was half of that.  Today looks to be even slower.  I wonder if they are messing with the best match again.  Usually I don't see such wild fluctuations.

Congratulations how big is your portfolio?


It seams that I'm a small fish... And I have to change something in my images.:/
Since new year it's not going anywhere for me.
best match it's shifted to older files..(this is what people says in IS forum)

Well, I'm a small fish also but up until mid-Dec I was happy with my results and the effort was worthwhile.  Lately my sales have come to a grinding halt and have now reached the point that I was doing better (at iStock) as an independent than I am doing now as an exclusive.  For me 'worthwhile' doesn't apply there any longer.

That's actually my situation ...

It's ironic that 10 min after my cancellation I've received this email:

Dear Exclusive Contributor,

One of our highest priorities for 2013 is making improvements for iS Exclusives. Some of you may remember a survey from last yearthe feedback from that survey enabled us to make a number of general improvements.  It is time now to ask you directly as an exclusive contributor, what you think we should do to improve your iStock experience. Weve got some ideas of our own and we are eager to set them in motion but we want to hear from you first. This is not a random questionnaire; it is a survey aimed at building an action plan dedicated to improving things for iS Exclusives.  So please consider taking 10-15 minutes of your time to complete this survey; we are listening!

too late...

I have, but a fraction of those at the glory days, not solely explainable by 'more competition'.

Read the line before the one you made bold (Actually read pretty much any other line and you'll understand).   I'd have given you a negative but I don't want to get in trouble.   ;)

ahahah starting to like you ;D

Early sales were down this week, probably due to big snowfall in Europe.

No congratulations necessary.  Condolences would be more appropriate.  My port was at 7k, but after removing 1k in Feb I am down to 6k.  Still not enough to explain the extreme drop. 

Maybe they are just trying to give me more incentive to complete my exit?

Strange. I do remember a survey last year, but for some reason I don't remember the "number of general improvements". It must be they were overshadowed by the number of general miscues and declines ... ?
