Comparing Microstock Sales: December 2012 and December 2011


Time for another monthly report on my microstock sales:

Shutterstock earnings were a bit worse than in November and October, yet they were still considerably better than  in December 2011:


123RF and Redbubble showed improvement again, while other microstocks were a bit disappointing. I should add about 20% to the iStockphotos earnings due to the partners sales that I will know about more precisely in a month. Yet the standard license sales were way too low comparing to the previous months:


And which trends in sales do you have?

  1. For me, in this Christmas days all agencies have suffered a great decline or slowdown in sales. Hopefully in the coming days sales begin to recover.

    Happy new year; that 2013 will be for you a time with lot of work and interesting projects.

    1. Thank you Jesus for all your nice comments all the time:) I wish 2013 will be a great year for you too!
      January started quite slow for me, hope for a recovery:)
