Shutterstock recently reported its 1st quarter results.  In its report it noted the number of paid downloads was 29.7 million and the number of images in its collection (end of period) was 35.4 million.  This means during the quarter the number of downloads as a percentage of its portfolio was 83.9%.

How did your portfolio do in Q1 as compared to Shutterstock overall?  My Q1 downloads as a percentage of my portfolio size was very close to Shutterstock's overall results at 83%.

Maybe, I haven't had my coffee yet, but I'm not sure I understand the question.

Should the portfolio size be the one at the end of Mar-2014 or an average of the three months ?

Shutterstock reported its total at the end of the quarter so go with that.

Your Q1 downloads at SS divided by your portfolio size at the end of Q1.

Perhaps it will give you some insight as to whether you have an above or below average portfolio.  With a mix of photos, vectors, and videos maybe it tells you nothing.

It means if I had 1000 images in my portfolio, I had 830 downloads in Q1.

Ah, I see. Thanks for humoring my slow brain on a Friday. I always have trouble with my stats at SS because of the way they handle the raster versions of vectors. I'm never sure if it is best to count just the vector version or the raster version as well (since they are two separate files in my portfolio).

I don't think this would be very meaningful to someone just starting out.

I'm not sure it works the same way on an individual portfolio. I consider my port average or even below, but I way outsold overall Shutterstock in the first quarter based on the way you're figuring it. I had 1,850 images in my port on March 30 with 5,161 sales for the first three months. That would be 279 percent. I could also delete about 60 percent of my port and get the same amount of sales because most of my stuff doesn't sell.

I would say you are doing very well.  I took a quick look at your portfolio and I think you have an above average portfolio. I don't know if this comparison means anything, but I noticed the numbers in Shutterstock's quarterly results so I thought I'd throw this out there.

In Q1 I had 835 downloads from 123 files. So I think that works out to 678%. If that's right, I'm pretty happy with that.    :)

Mine tells me much the same as my school teachers did many years ago: "Paul's progress this year is disappointing. He must try harder".
