September was the Best Month Ever (BME) for me in microstock. And I’m awaiting that another BME will be in October and also in November, because in those months are the microstock earnings the highest for every year (you can check it on my last graph in the article). I had also the BME on Shutterstock and Dreamstime.
August was quite a weak month – my sales drops to the March level. And it looks like August was weak month also in previous two years (in 2008 it was because my account on Shutterstock was disabled for several days). The sales went down on all my accounts, except Fotolia.
Well this is another article about iStockphoto application quiz (check the quiz for vector illustrators and for photographers) – this time for flash developers. The quiz is really easy and consists of four questions only. Don’t forget to read the Stock Flash Training Manual before uploading your flash files (it will save you some rejections).
In July, there was not any surprise in the overall earnings for me – July 2009 was just a little bit worse than June – it is very similar as in the previous years in microstock – check the last graph in the report, where you can compare the earnings since 2007. Only on iStockphoto I had the BME (without any extended licence) – last image was added to my iStock portfolio in May!
Did you ever think about how much time you spend just by uploading your images to several microstock sites? I did and after that I decided, that I need some system, which will save me some time. The iSyndica service is one of the solutions – once you have account on this service, you will upload your files just to this one website (the upload there is quite quick) and after that you can easily distribute your images to all microstock agencies, where you are selling.
Well, June 2009 was my best month ever on microstock! To this article I also added one „history“ graph, showing my earnings for nearly three years in microstock. You can see, that the earnings are bigger and bigger – that’s because I’m not lazy and my portfolio is growing.
