01 May 2008 Microstock Earnings Report April 2008
Normally a relatively slow month, I was very pleased with my earnings for April. While my top two agencies both experienced dips, the next three all rose sharply, two recording new record highs. Total earnings for April were slightly higher than March and just $12 below my current record.
|Agency||Earnings US$||Portfolio Size||Return per Image
||Sell-through Rate %|
|Total:||680.80||Avg: 0.13||Avg: 42|
- I had Extended License sales at Dreamstime (2) and Fotolia (1) this month
- This is my 13th earnings report – last April I earned $462.33 from seven agencies
- StockXpert and Fotolia both hit new record highs
- After my shoot daily and contribute nightly challenge my portfolio is growing quicker
Historically, I’ve always earned more in May than in April, which is also the experience of other contributors with larger portfolios. Add to this the anticipated commission rise at Shutterstock and the potential earnings increase from iStockphoto subscriptions, and it looks like May will set a new record for total earnings.
