I have managed to get through 90 days without a sale on Luckyoliver. That is with a portfolio of 147 images

Can anyone better that!?

I would consider you a winner if you have a large port and no sales or a similar port size and a longer dry patch.

That's not encouraging.

I'm on about 70 days with 41 images online.  Waiting for them to re-review a batch of 35 images.

No sales, 50 odd views.

So have I. No sales in 2k8 so far! I have about 500 pictures there. I am going to give them up as a bad job unless they manage to sell something by the end of April.

LuckyOliver are a young agency relative to the ones they're often compared to, so I'm never disappointed with my earnings there, no matter how low. There are many agencies where you could contribute your photos and experience zero sales.

I know other contributors reach payout at LuckyOliver every month, so when I see my low earnings it's my portfolio that I look to for answers.

Days since last sale: 1  (not that I sell a photo there every day)

Good things? Really? Where and what?

I've read almost nothing but bad things about LO. So many bad things that unless there's some sort of sea change, I can't see it as a worthwhile agency.

I have a similar performance in CS.  Last time I checked, I had no sales for 3 months, with 70 images online.  I had 5 (I think) in LO in March with a portfolio of around 350-400.

Adelaide

March sales rock!!NOT. 2 sales so far with portfolio over 1300 images :) (or it is just my images which sucks).

Featurepics, mostphotos, snapvillage (with 40 images) and several other low earners out sells LO big time :). 29 more images to go for side sales (or what was it called). I hope it helps a bit.

I've had 19 sales this year, worth $48.70 ($2.56 per download). Not earth-shattering, but if it stays at around $200 per year, I'm reasonably happy. I've also had one $160 payout and have $60-odd in "the Bank".

I've got around 800 images there, but the bulk are from my early "forays" into photography, so many are rather amateurish. The site is a slow earner, but somehow I like it there.

Well, you know i'm an LO fanboy (and forum moderator) so I'm biased :)

But, there's good news about LO all around. Here's a chart comparing traffic for LO against some of the other smaller sites like featurepics and albumo etc...

Granted, LO isn't busting straight up like I'd love to see it do, but it is still beating some of the other sites in traffic etc.

Hope that helps

P.S. yes, my sales are down for the first 3 months of the year too - I'm hoping that turns around :)

Micth, don't beat me up... just posting my stats and comments obvious to them

LO since 9/31/06
Only   56 DL's for $72.20  (inc  1 EL and a buck for a referal)
38296 views
       although everything I've put on in the last month or two still only has 0, 1 or 2 views. ?????????  I wonder how that works. daily my views climb, but nothing on anything recently uploaded.
406 pix
126 comments given
93 comments recvd
2 odditorriums

only 4 sales in 2008,  none in 42 days.

  I like the site, I had high hopes for LO back in 8/06 (and I still do).   I'll still hang in there, but uploading for no views isn't smart. I've officially stopped uploading now after a year and a half.  I'll let what is there ride and hope for the best. If it starts to pick up, I'll have hundreds more  to upload.   8)=tom


BTW to those that follow such things, Mitch and I have signed a peace accord.  :)

I've had 8 sales there totalling $7.20 (75 images and 2308 views) since I joined a year ago. I haven't sold anything there since mid-December. I haven't uploaded anything there in several months, because sales were just tooo sloooow. If things pick up there, I might submit more.. I'm just going to wait and see.

Anymore, it's not even worth logging in to see if I've had a sale, let alone upload more with my super-slow connection.  :P

Interestingly....   for the last hour or so,  I can't get on LO.  One hears that complaint a lot.

The last month I have had no problems logging in to LO.  No problem today and I have had 2 sales, so it isn't just me.

I have made a lot more with LO that FP or SV so far and it might be worth people who make more than me on other sites uploading there.  I don't understand all the negativity.  istock took years to get going and they had no microstock competition.  LO are doing reasonably well considering they have a lot of competitors.

Tom, you ignorant slut!

(that's a reference to an old Saturday Night Live skit from my teenage years... here's an audio clip of the old skit

All joking aside, Tom, please do feel free to post your stats and comments. My stats aren't so great right now on LO either and i would love it to improve. I'm waiting just like everyone else... only difference for me is that I'm married to LO because I'm the moderator :)

By the way - i'm sorry i didn't reply to your PM... tho i really did appreciate the kind words and the apology! I owe ya.

Your friend
Mitch

I don't understand all the negativity.

The negativity may partly be due to the fact that, while most agencies are most agencies are either good or bad with some individual variations, LO varies a lot. For some, it's just a "normal" slow site, but for others, it doesn't seem to move at all. I've been there for nearly a year and a half now, and with a portfolio of 572 images, I've made an astonishing 11 or 12 dollars.

Even stranger than that: I have only 1955 views in total, while at SV, where I've just been a little over 6 months, that's the number of views I've had on my top 25 or 30 images combined. Considering the fact that SV isn't a fast mover either, this puts LO in a rather strange light: why on earth is my portfolio nearly invisible at LO?

Are you sure about this number?  Because I have just checked mine and I have 106997 views with 358 images.
