Today is one of those days that only comes round very rarely. Once in a blue moon as my parents used to say. Total sales for the day are a cool $200. Why? Three very nice sizeable sales!
First Shutterstock with a pretty boring shot I took in the English Lake District on a cloudy day for $69.81:
Hardly a fine art print, I’m afraid! But then Alamy came in with a sale at $89 gross which netted me $44.50
Now I think that is quite nicely taken with a wooden US flag in the background and my slate cheese board for the foreground. Those 20 year old empty bottles of Oxycodone that I think I got from the dentist have been pretty profitable for me. The tablets – who knows? Aspirin I think!
And now I just checked the days results on Microstockr Pro to see what has sold and I see another single sale for $22.90:
Now I do like this one – taken last spring at Lake Tahoe in California. I wrote about finding this spot in an earlier post about how to get the best shots on a vacation – proved I was right!
There is no doubt that there is a lot of luck and variability in the stock game – especially with the higher value licenses, but if you don’t have the images there, you will never sell them! Good luck with your own images!
