Slow month Feb'13. Why???

posted on 28th of february, 2013

Dear all,

February has just ended. But no sale for me. Is it just happen to me only?
How about you guys?
But I hope that this is a kind of Up and Down situation as long as Stock photography is concerned. So I won't give up and will upload more and more as much as I can so long as DT accept my images.
Keep going... [encouraging myself] :D

By the way here is my Level 4 image, 16 downloads.

Hope more sale in March.. :)

I can report that sales are slow on all major micro stock sites and have been since April 2012. Yes some months are better than others but overall low sales and the trend is still downwards. I am interested to know why this is. Is it because people are simply downloading or screen scraping photos directly from google and what are the other contributing factors?

February is always my worst month of the year. Last year February was my worst month and March was my Best Month Ever.

Hi everyone, thank you for your comments, which make me feel better.
And thank you for your time passing by.

Yes, sales do come and go, all quite normal. For me January was looking hopeless, over halfway into the month and no sales and then several large sales in the later half made it my best ever month, so hold out and hopefully things will swing round for you.

Only 28 sales for me which can be considered as slow compared to other months. I guess the non-sales of some are the sales of others. Uploading new content is always a good idea.

Don't despair. Some months are great, others not so much. November was a bad month for me, this month has been one of the best. Just keep on uploading unique images.

In the other hand Fabruary has been great for me, is the best month ever in revenue. We all get good and bad months, December for me wasn´t good. So keet it up.

I had a slow month, but I haven't been uploading. I am trying to move from capturing moments to creating stock images. i just haven't been happy with the results yet, but I am hoping my efforts will pay off soon.

I am surprised just how quiet things are................. you are not alone in your conclusion. David.

You are not alone...bad month for me too. Keep uploading and sales will improve. Becoming exclusive should help, you might want to consider this option.

I had 41 sales. It is my best month. But It was only my 5th month selling images.

Yes,keep going! you will get more and more.

You get those months I suppose. I had an OK month considering the size of my portfolio. Just hang in there...it will pick up soon. Maybe consider adding some different images with people doing things. Look around for the unique things in your area. Always think stock!! Good luck
