01 Jul 2008 Microstock Earnings Report June 2008
Earnings were down this month as expected with the onset of the slower period usually experienced by microstock contributors over the northern summer months. Fotolia was the only ones to record a worthy rise in earnings, though Dreamstime and StockXpert both rose marginally.
While I did a lot of shooting in June, I haven’t uploaded any of the new photos yet. They’ll go up in July and hopefully help shelter my earnings from the typically weak sales of July.
|Agency||Earnings US$||Portfolio Size||Return per Image
||Sell-through Rate %|
|Total: 607.53||Avg: 0.12||Avg: 47|
- Only one Extended License sale this month at Dreamstime
- Eight of 67 sales at Fotolia were from their newly launched subscriptions, but standard sales were also up (from 44 last month)
- The trendlines for my Dreamstime earnings continue rising despite the market slowdown. I only recorded a small increase in earnings in June, but in the context of the declining earnings at most other sites, that’s positive.
