January 2011 Micro Stock Stats

January month was ok! I have been working hard to create more stock images, Overall I created about 100 new images this month.  I have uploaded all those to my ShutterStock gallery and I will upload them to all my galleries soon.  I need to find a better system for uploading to many sites.   All my work this month is paying off and I have seen a increase in ShutterStock sales.   Overall I am UP 3.44% total across all sites. My goals for this year are to upload more and start using my Blog more as well and so far I am off to a good start.   Fotolia had a drop again this month DOWN –4.00% .

Here is the graph from Shutterstock main submit site which shows my Earnings from new content, I think the uploading is helping out!

This month I made the most money at Shutterstock with a close follow was Fotolia

Anyone have any ideas how to increase my income at Fotolia??  Uploading does not seam to make much difference!

Tyler Olson - MicrostockGroup - Hey there,

nice graphs 🙂 It is nice to see the increase / decrease graphed as a bar graph. I might have to start doing that as well. It makes it quite clear who is performing and which sites are loosing steam.

Stu - Hey Melissa! Two questions: it sounds like there’s a lot of effort required to upload your images to all the various sites, have you ever considered building your own site and selling D2C? Secondly, which wordpress theme is this? 🙂

Melissa King - Hi, Thanks for the comment! There is effort in the uploading but then all the marketing is done for you.. The stock companies already have buyers on there sites waiting for new photos to be uploaded. I have not uploaded in a few months now and I am still making money off the photos which I have already uploaded even 5 years ago.

Melissa King - The Theme is From Prophoto 4 called Sunny California 🙂
