Disappointing for me following a record month in April across all areas. Record D/L For the Month, Record Revenue for the Month, BDE in D/L and BDE in Revenue.

May was down 15% in downloads and even worse, 26% down in Revenue terms so therefore my performance was BAD  :(

A little down, but not so much.

A weak month, but not disastrous - around the bottom end of expectations.

Pretty good for me but I'm an overall poor performer by SS standards

+ 27% compared to May 2013

For me, March and April were exceptionally strong months due to some Single Downloads, May only had regular downloads and some On Demands, so the numbers are pretty skewed.

+63% compared to May 13
-25% compared to April 14 (also BME)

No ELs, no footage, no large SOD, massive lack of ODDs. Lowest RPD since July 13

Crap month, but if I remove ELs and LSODs from the other months, its exactly the same amount, every month. Which is no good, I added 700+ images.

SNAP :)
Apart from adding new images. I'm boycotting SS on all new images until they sort out their new image review software :)

Out of my 5 months so far, 2nd best, but surprised it was more than $100 below April, with all the uploads I put in.

I had a great month for my meagre and underperforming portfolio...BME...On Demand, and Single downloads pushed it higher.  Now I need to work on actually creating some content that sells consistently.

1/3 below March and April.

Bad but not awfully so.  Slow start, got good in the middle of the month and then kind of stalled at the end.  Down 11% from April, which is in line with my average April -> May decline over the past 8 years across all agencies.

Pretty regular until the last few days where I had some big downloads. Those pushed me to a BME by maybe $100.

Thank goodness.
I was beginning to think the sky was really falling.

Unusually terrible month, and only at SS. 20% down from April, 15% down from last May. The last week of May was the same as the week of last Christmas, which is the worst of the whole year.  Very unusual for me as they are pretty consistent until now.
