BME in regards to revenues by a comfortable margin (17% over my last BME), downloads are slightly higher than April. Lots of E+ sales, some Vettas and ELs made the difference

Depressing, discouraging, bleak, daunting, dejecting, disheartening, dismal, dispiriting, dreary, gloomy, joyless - get my drift?

DL average. $ not as good as previous months in 2012. No EL and strangely just a few Vetta sales which affected my $ this month.


I don't have a single E+ file and lately I feel like that's the only way to bring my revenue higher.

Best post in this thread.  You're even hanging in there, so far, in June.

Thanks for the laugh.

up 14% on April 2012 in RL, Down 30% in RL compared to May 2011. I only grew my port by 8%.


Strange download days, I am not really selling that much of what I am expecting to sell.


Anyway, need to shoot more.

BME


 


But the last two weeks I had long stretches of 0 sales. I hope that trend doesn't continue.

 yesterday's stats are not showing so I don't have the exact picture.


Overall, royalties similar to those of May, 2011 but downloads down -44%. I am not sure if moving number of files to E+ scared some buyers?


I didn't have any Getty sales, or stats are not in yet.

It was a great month for me and my thanks to the buyers. Two EL's were a wonderful treat, but, even without them, it was a BME. The actual numbers I use to judge my business looked like this:

Total Monthly Dollars =
May 2012 Total $'s w/ EL's: +89% from April and +125% from Year-Ago May
May 2012 Total $'s w/o EL's: +33% from April and +58% from Year-Ago May

Average $ spent per DL =
May 2012 w/ EL = +109% from April and +280% from Year-Ago May
May 2012 w/o EL = +56% from April and +109% from Year-Ago May
