October earnings


A very good month well above september (+75%) with record earnings on six of the microstock sites and for the first time earnings were above the $100 mark.

Microstock one by one

  • SS (+ 35%) BME. Number one once again this month but only by few cents. Still a long way to reach $ 500 to get an increase in payment but eventually it will happen. A good mix of new and old pictures sold this month. For three months in a row, the best performing microstock with 43.3 % (0.43 c per picture of the portfolio). 100+ portfolio this month

  • FT (+ 435%) Finally, FT is doing better with earnings multiplied by three compared to last month making it a BME. Performance up from 2.8 to 8.9 %. However still no EL since June….. 500+ portolio.

  • DT (+ 3%) Sales are stable compared to last month but still a BME. Global performance of 5.9%. Acceptance down this month to 56%.

  • IS (+ 60%) BME and second best performing stock after SS with 14.9%. However a not so glorious record: only two pictures uploaded this month were accepted!

  • 123RF (+ 13%) Best month ever and 123RF continue its slow progression. I am not sure about the impact of the free pics the sales but I sold a large size of the free picture. Very fast review under 24h.

  • SXP (+ 400%) Few sales this month but very difficult to increase the size portfolio because of though reviews. Subscription sales started but not for me yet. Performance : 5.7%
  • LO,CT,BSP,CSP very slow month for these sites once again each having less than 2% of the earnings.
    Despite no uploads this month, few sales on CSP this month probably due to their special offer for subscriptions until the end of October.
    CT: new website version very sleek and fast but sales are still slow (1 this month)
  • Still no sales on SV and FP….
