01 Sep 2007 Microstock Earnings Report August 2007
Based on last year’s results I was expecting August to be better than July. I read that August is the slowest month of the year, but not for me this year. Earnings increased slightly on last month finishing just below US$500.
I uploaded approximately 20 new shots taken around London and the markets this month.

- Earnings per photo is down substantially, telling me I’m uploading photos that are selling below my average. This is contrary to my intention to shoot for quality over quantity.
- Many contributors are vocally abandoning Fotolia due to dropping earnings, but mine seem relatively stable in fourth place
- Unlike the preceding two months I didn’t score an extended license sale at LuckyOliver this month resulting in a dramatic drop in earnings
- BigStockPhoto generated record earnings this month, despite the fact I haven’t uploaded any new photos for a long time. Perhaps it’s time to resume.
