Microstock Earnings through September

October 23, 2017  •  9 Comments

My monthly microstock earnings came in at $871 for September. This amount is approximately the same as the earnings from last month and the earnings from September of last year.

Following is a summary of my monthly earnings:

Hi Rachel...my contributions are sporadic. Many weeks, I don't submit anything. But, when I return from a trip I sometimes will submit 500 at a time. I have about 6,000 images on Shutterstock...and about a third of that on Dreamstime and iStock. I have about 1,000 with Fotolia. Glenn
Thanks for the info. Do you contribute to all agencies regularly? If so how many approx per week? Thanks!

Thank you! If I had known that Alamy could, on average, produce just one sale a month per 1,000 images, I wouldn't have bothered with them. I opened up a portfolio with Alamy and currently have 148 photographs there. Those pictures have been up for a couple of weeks. I'm waiting to see if those pictures create any sales...and won't submit any more images until some of the existing ones sell. If they do sell, I will submit another 150 and go from there.

They say you can expect 1 sale/month per 1000 images on Alamy. I waited 7 months for my 1st one. But your photos are mind blowing quality, so you will probably have more success. But know that, if you have photo on both Micro-Stock AND Alamy chances are in won't get sold on Alamy (people shop around). Good luck at any rate!
