So, here's the final comparison to January 2020:
Revenue: -41%
Sales: -2.64%

So, as I sometimes say, this month was un dolor anal.

Actually, I'm much more preoccupied at the decrease in sales than at the decrease in revenue: my portfolio is significantly bigger than in January 2020, but the number of sales is lower. I'm still extremely upset at the revenue decrease, but I can expect things to get better be less bad in the upcoming weeks thanks to the season and the sales levels.

One positive thing: I got an increase of sales and revenue (+5.5%) on SOD and Singles compared to last January. Both in 2020 and in 2021, I didn't get any outstanding sale in this column (the highest one was below $4 in both cases), so it means there's still something growing out of there.

With the new scheme, I had actually previously noticed that , while my subs were getting murdered, the Singles, Other and SOD were stable, or were even getting better. It's hard to say, however, if this comes from the new system, or if it's due to my strategy: I'm mainly editorial, and I'm focusing more and more on small niches that start to add up where the supply is close to non existent and where I'm usually the only option (I'd say the second).

For me number of sales ended up almost the same as january 2020.

But earnings were 72% lower than january 2020, and 60% lower than they would have been with the old earning structure  :'(

The reality is ShutterStock is run as a facist organisation, it doesnt remotely come anywhere near capitalism.

Those who continue to upload are just being exploited by a bunch of Nazis.

YOU ARE RIGHT, apologies for that.

The reason I wrote they are a bunch of Nazis, is over the concentration camps they had a sign saying;- Work will set you free.

Yes of course they remain the same!^^   but all revenues are geared towards the eastern blocks, Thailand etc, etc. the actual search algorithm is aimed towards that. SS have been nursing these markets for many years now!

India and Pakistan seems to be their main target for contributors (image farms etc).


Youre dead right! any country where 5 bucks a day goes a long way!  thats their nursing targets!

A quick look on the FB groups show that.  People prodly posting $10-$20 a month earnings, plenty of people jealous or saying amazing, others asking how they can sell as much.

This is SS key contributor market now - people who will upload for effectively nothing.  They dont need/want quality - there's Custom and Offset for that.

Contributors are not a market they are suppliers. Do you have any evidence that the search engine is geared that way or any reason why it is of any commercial advantage to SS that contribitors come from certain countries?

I appreciate a good effort like that.  :)

No one does, just like most of the other invented claims. But then people repeat the lies enough times and someone else will believe it's actually truth.

Called Factoids. But also known as The Big Lie.

Oddly enough: The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously".

So tales of how Shutterstock favors someone else or does horrible things to give others some advantage or cheat us, is an example. Salary caps, account blackouts, favoring some country, favoring some contributor, making special deals in secret, or why our sales are down because someone else is getting special favors. 

The truth is, they don't need to cheat and block, or play favorites, because they make so much from any sales, (AKA pay us all so little) it doesn't matter to them.

Shutterstock is a  product of unfettered free market capitalism. It has nothing whatever to do with Fascism as far as I can see. To draw parallels with concentration camps is a bit ridiculous really.

I am drawing a parallel with how Jon Oringer and Stan Pavlovsky think, there thinking is straight out of the Facist playbook.

You are quite right Pete! its all lies nothing but lies and people can not use their own intelligence! the fact that soome US members with over 50000 files are down 70% is all lies no truth at all since they are lying!
SS is all above board fair and square and do their utmost to bring peace and happiness among all their contributors. The fact that SS themselves 4 years back came clean with saying they are going to make it "fair" trying to give everybody a slice of the cake!: is all lies of course!

Well Pete its like believeing in Santa isnt it! never the less: Never have so many millions had so few (SS) to thank for so much! at least thats true.....isnt it?

Yep!  and this is very strange considering both Oringer and Pavlovsky are of Jewish origin/religion!

Good grief its not because they are facists or Jewish its because they follow the same old well trodden path of all businesses in the USA which is crush everyone, competition, suppliers et al.

Corporate greed and good old fashioned capitalism.

So how exactly does 'soome US members with over 50000 files are down 70%' prove that 'all revenues are geared towards the eastern blocks, Thailand etc, etc'?!

Thanks for bringing this back to the point. False claims and made up data.

(and away from senseless personal attacks that ignore the original false claims and fabrications)
