01 Sep 2008 Microstock Earnings Report August 2008
Wow! Record earnings this month. Three new agency records and total earnings were 20% above the previous record and up 25% on last month. The jump was primarily due to an unusually high quantity of extended license sales: iStockphoto (2), Dreamstime (1), Fotolia (1) and StockXpert (2).
August marks the end of the microstock summer slowdown so all microstock contributors are looking forward to rising earnings until December.
Here’s my microstock earnings report for August:
|Agency||Earnings US$||Portfolio Size||Return per Image
||Sell-through Rate %|
- The three agencies which earned new record highs selling my portfolio were iStockphoto (broke the record set exactly two years ago!), StockXpert (my first two extended license sales in the same month) and Crestock (second consecutive record earnings month and more than doubled).
- Shutterstock’s OnDemand system worked well netting me six sales and 8% of my total earnings.
