My worst April since starting out in July 2007, and worst month overall since becoming Exclusive. 


Second half of April was particularly bad. Very disappointing!

Very good month, BMY and 2nd BME, seems things are looking up again!


Compared to:


            March 2013    April 2012
DLs            +18%           -17%
$$s            +17%           +13%


Rolling year-on-year royalties: -1.2%, first time it's been negative.
Portfolio increase 22%.



If this continues, I'll be happy!  Now if I can just get the year-on-year figure back in the black...


All figures include PP and GI from previous month.

An odd month. Compared to other Aprils...


'09        20 DLs


'10        99 DLs


'11        99 DLs


'12        105 DLs


'13        70 DLs


Which is a bit worrying, though considerably better than last month. As it was, for $$$ it was the best month since August last year (helped by 2 decent ELs). Would be happier if new stuff was selling (or even getting views) and if E+ was migrating to Getty like it's supposed to ('cos it sure ain't sellin' here much) but generally I feel happier than I have for months. As I said, an odd month.

Compared to


April 2012      $$ - 1,5%  dls - 26%
March 2013    $$ - 11%   dls - 8,2%


So, not that good, Getty payout for march meant an increase of 20%, so all in all it was not that bad.

Another month that was worse than the year before. Compared to April 2012:


-13% $$
-44% DLs 


+35% more files in portfolio. Desperately looking for good news: BMY.

Bad $ down 2 % on last year but Dl's down 40%


$ down 20 % and dl's down 25 % on last month


and this is despite a huge increase in my portfolio.


average down load price is going up and up but download numbers are falling so fast that it will not be long before zero down load weeks are possible.

The middle two weeks gave me hope but the last week was bad. Very slight pick up in sales but the outlook remains uncertain.

Almost identical to last month, which is so so, but pretty good considering my long upload hiatus.

OK - I have now had a chance to check the sums properly.



April 2013 vs March 2013

$$: -0.05%

DL: -2.6%


April 2013 vs April 2012

$$: +20%

DL: -22%

So year on year, that's really good to see the dollars rise especially as I've uploaded so very little over the last 12 months.

Strange month. Zero DL for 2 weeks(in the middle), but the rest of the month is actually good, overall not too bad.

-25% $$ with respect to April 2012.


The thing that I don't like is that I don't sell files I uploaded in the last year. Hard working contributors are not rewarded.

Utterly pathetic. For straight 8 months (everybody knows what happened last Sep). But overall I'm doing great, 2nd BME, or even BME if PP earnings will be good, so I don't care for IS' crappy performance.

Downloads a long way down on April 2012; royalties also down on April 2012.


Downloads up on March 2013; royalties down on March 2013, mainly because GI wasn't kind to me in April!


It could be worse - but I would hope for better.
