Microstock Earnings through January, 2017

February 22, 2017  •  1 Comment

Earlier this month, I posted a blog entry about how the timing of the reporting of microstock earnings has changed. Now that iStock doesn't report monthly earnings until three weeks or so after month-end, I won't be posting my microstock earnings until later in the month.

This morning, iStock finally reported earnings for January. So, I've updated my earnings report.

The good news is my earnings from iStock were stronger in January than they've been in quite some time.

My overall earnings approached $1,200 for the month and surpassed last January's earnings by about $120.

Following is a summary of my monthly earnings. I'll report back again in late February:


I'm pleased to report that my experience with iStock in January mirrored your own. It has more than doubled what I was earning in recent months. This is very encouraging. Particularly for me, since 75% of my iStock downloads came from Australia, and January is traditionally a very quiet month: schools and universities are closed for summer holidays and many businesses are working slow as people are on leave.

I am now tempted to try out their new upload facilities, as it may be worthwhile to start uploading to them again. Maybe microstock is not quite as stuffed as we feared it was.
