January Microstock Results

Here are a few highlights from January:
  • First month at Shutterstock
  • First uploading milestone (100 images) at CSP, 123RF, and SXP
  • Best month ever overall in regards to sales!
  • Still no sales (ever) at CSP.

The next few months are going to be pretty hectic for me so I'm hoping to upload 1-2 more shoots before March that will hopefully hold me over until I can get back into it again. I know I need to consistently upload to SS to keep up the momentum, so that is my motivation!

Congrats those look like Great Earnings!
I'm currious how many new shoots do you typically get in during a month? And how many images do you get out / submit to the agencies for those shoots?

Let's see...this past month I submitted about 23 images - 2 shoots. Some of my agencies accepted most of them. Others were more picky and only accepted a few.

I average 2 shoots/uploads per month. I don't really take pictures of "everything" anymore. My shoots tend to be a bit more focused (portraits, maternity, etc.) So, I tend to come away with less images to submit than before. I'm more into quality vs. quantity now, which is why I'm not really setting monthly uploading goals anymore. I'm a lot more picky now than I was when I started a few months ago.

Hey Brandy, watch those Shutterstock sales fly! You had a great month there on a small portfolio. Obviously the quality over quantity effect. Wishing you even better for February. Regards, David.
