It looks like I'm about 27% down in royalties compared to Oct 2011. Not sure if that's good, bad or indifferent in iStock HQ's 'meeting expectations' management-speak.


How was your October?

Woeful, so pretty much met my expectations for the month. DLs & $$$ nosediving. Thoroughly unimpressed.

I'm trying very hard to not be negative and downright bitter about the current trend.
Trying. Very. Hard.

Long story short: Crap.

It's steady.... steady Decline since the start of the year. -18 % down from Sept and -38% compared to Oct 11. Not to mention regular refunds.... Pleaassee fix. As Im nearing my RC targets, sometime I think I'm less favored in the BM... Is there any good news out there?

October was a BME for me income-wise. Roughly 25% came from CC sales. I finished only 5% above August (my previous BME) with the same number of weekdays so I guess there was a loss of 20% on regular sales compared to last Summer.  Still, it's some growth overall. Income for September from Getty was also my best to nicely top it off.

BME $$ by far (even without counting commission increase halfway through October). Third BME DL's. BME for RC's. BTW, all cash/credit card sales are counted.

My third full month as an exclusive and the lesser of the three in terms of $.  Still, better than any month as an independent.

Crap. Second declining month in a row. But then again, I have very little seasonal images, and if the BM currently favours Christmas images, I can expect sales to tank right now.

Above average month with a lot of CC sales. By a lot I mean about 25%. Maybe would have been better with a fullly functional site. But not bad and better then October 2011 and September 2012.

BME for downloads and $$. I also did notice about a quarter of my sales were coming from CC. And now with the slow but surely transfer of E+ to Getty there might be a better trend afterall.

The downward spiral continues. I now make more in tips from my part time job, than I make from downloads on iStock.
