How did you guys do for March on iStock? I was really dreading the worst due to the coronavirus. It ended up being the highest earning month since last August. So pleasantly surprised. Though now I'm really dreading April's stats, again due to the coronavirus.

Recovered pretty well after a very bad February for me. Decent amount of sales, average RPD. Not as good as the last months of 2019 and January 2020, but coming close.

Best month for over two years so quite surprised! Top site that month which is very rare as its usually spanked by SS and pipped into third by Adobe. Whether its an outlier remains to be seen.

Odd mine would be the worst month ever due to iStock/Getty? Not the virus.

Yeah, humor aside, better than the last few months. I didn't get a slew of those decimal sales, RPD 72 but still not much activity. I'll consider that a personal problem, because of the age and quality of the leftovers that I have there, and nearly nothing new.  ;)

One of the best month in a long long time.

Good numbers indeed. I see lot of connect type sale. I read connect type is great method now as revenue is shared with the image creater. In fact connect numbers are much better than regular. That has contributed a lot this month. Plus a $300 sale is also a great news indeed.

Where did you see the statement? I checked DM and ESP website and could not find the data.

Thanks.

My Istock for March was higher than March in either of the previous years, so no adverse impact from coronavirus so far.  Adobe is also quite good, including through April, while Shutterstock is somewhat weaker than usual.  It is possible that the other two are taking business from.

There are no doubt people working on long-term projects.  E.g., in March, I sold numerous fall season and Christmas-themed items.   The coronavirus impact will probably hit more gradually, with the weaker economy and weaker advertising, as these projects wind down.

AFAIK, DM doesn't show your new figures automatically, you have to perform a sync to bring the new month's stats onboard.

Yes good month! I was not expecting that at all.

A better month than expected for me.  With Coronavirus, and my horrible month on SS, I was expecting another bad month here.  The bad news: March 2020 was less than March 2019.  The so-so news: March 2020 was less than $10 off of March 2019.  The better news: this was my best month in five months. 

I am still nervous about April.  The first half of March for me on SS was much better than the second half.  Now April on SS is looking like my worst month in almost two years. 

Shockingly, I had my best month ever on DT in March 2020.  More shocking, it followed 2 consecutive BME's on DT.  April, while OK (for DT), is projected to be lowest month in 5 months.

Poor month here, but I have no covid content, so not surprising. I'm sure April will be even worse.

Did not understand this. Isn't ESP the website from where we get the royalty reports? I assume DM is deepmeta. How is ESP > Royalty

Below average for me. It was an upward trend until this month, so I expected better, but still pretty stable so far.

The latest DM version (3.17.2) now has an "Auto-start" checkbox option under "Sync" which automatically runs a sync when it logs in, so it will fetch the latest stats as soon as they are available.

Terrible, unfortunately.  Lowest month since I went non-exclusive six years ago.

Thanks for the info: is that Mac-only? I just downloaded DM from Franky's site and I got 3.16.8, whereas I had been at 3.16.7. Or are you a beta tester - I see they have newer beta versions.

Once you open DeepMeta, it will give you the option to download the latest version, 3.17.2 ... and the Auto-Start option is available for Windows. I like it.

In terms of this month, much better than I expected, considering that most designers were likely working from home. True that as time goes by, projects will likely dry up. I'm prepared to see my numbers drop.

That's what it does usually, but it's not offering me a latest version at the moment. Still, I can do a sync, though the auto-sync will be better!

Nice month for me, better than 2019 (more 10$). No covid for march, but in april, I added +-60 pics related to covid-19 (editorial and not), I think they will sell quite well ... to see during the April stats.
