Probably Due To Network Congestion

I had quite a nice surprise yesterday as my Dreamstime balance jumped up a full $100, after checking I found that it was a referral purchase, meaning that I got paid out 10% of the credit package bought 🙂 Pretty darn Good 🙂
Its always impressive the amount of referred members on DT and the occasional thing like this makes it feel even better.

My Dreamstime stats are as follows:

  • Member since –  March 9, 2006
  • 947 – Images Online
  • 1759 – Image Downloads
  • $1672.57 – Total Image Sale earnings
  • $485.31 – Referral Earnings
  • 255 – Referred Dreamstime members

My highest earning & Most downloaded file:

My most viewed file:

My Oldest online file:
The Great Wall of China

One of my newest files:

December ’08 Microstock Stock Stats, this time using Lookstat.com

lookstat-dec-08-stats

Current supported sites are iStockphoto, Dreamstime & Shutterstock, with Fotolia, 123rf & Stockxpert to follow.
December has been a slow month for sales with the only real event being an Extended license sale at Dreamstime, iStock worked hardest and Shutterstock sold most but made less money! I’ve been pretty slack with uploading, editing, and keywording for a good part of this year maybe I should make a new years resolution to get my finger out! 😉 Lately I’ve had computer problems and had to upgrade spending over £500 on Mobo, CPU, RAM & PSU (Acronym city!!!) and I’ve spent a good bit of time on my really old PC and installed ubuntu and had a good play around in Linux for the first time… *Maybe this is the way computer operating systems ‘should‘ work, its been enjoyable finding that almost everything I need is contained within the Ubuntu environment, albeit running on a slow-as-old-AMD Athlon system. I’d encourage anyone who uses a computer for general stuff to concider installing Ubuntu linux.

Back to Stock, here’s the Lockstat view of my stock History on the current three sites:
lookstat-stats-to-date
No referral earnings will be in these numbers (Adding my referral earnings to these stats would bumb them up quite a bit).

As for features I’d like to see in Lookstat:

  • Track an individual files’ sales history
  • Show the Sell Through rates for each site
  • Average Monthly figure for each site
  • Specify an exact date period to show stats
  • Further site additions of Canstockphoto, Crestock & Bigstockphoto

Now, the question… “Would I pay for this Service” ?

Not sure, it is interesting to see whish files sell the best, but for the most part I find it easy to keep my own little spreadsheet to keep track of my sales and site stats. If I was to pay for it, the amount would have to be low enough so as to be offset by an hour of my time earch month with my own spreadsheet.
