Microstock earnings report – November 2009

Well I did it again! November was again my Best Month Ever (BME) in microstock industry. The earnings were so good, that I had BME on every microstock agency, where I’m submitting my images.

The best improvement was on Fotolia – check the graph – the earnings are 4× bigger than they were in summer.

I think, that November was so good because of several reasons:

  1. November is the best month in microstock for several years
  2. I have quite a lot of Christmas images in my portfolio
  3. I’m using iSyndica for uploading my images in vector format for several months. Before I uploaded only big JPGs to some agencies and now i can see in stats, that buyers like vector format (what makes mi income bigger).
