Passive Income and Microstock Earnings for August 2012

Posted on September 1, 2012 | Category :Business of Illustration | 2 Comments

It was a good month for earnings. It was my second best month of the year. Clipartof was once again my top agency followed by Shutterstock in second place. GL made a surprise appearance in third, and my own site came in 6th (just behind Can Stock and Dreamstime).

I ended up making good on my threat from last month, and deleted my images at 123RF. It’s strange. Every time I delete a good earning agency, another agency has a record month to take its place. This month GL did that when I left 123RF. It may just be coincidence, but it does make me think.

Well, that is all I’ve got this month. The fall months are usually some of the best of the year, so I hope to see some good earnings.

    Hi Mystosckvector!

    First,congrat on earning you made from your vectors!
    May I ask you some thing bout selling vectors at 123rf and Graphiclefover? About 123rf, I starting upload some vectors at 123rf couple of month, they get accepted easily and move in my portfolio quickly, but I feel hardly selling any vectors! just 13view since the day I sign up 123rf, Juanuary 27,2012! Is it normal??? By the way, I’ve got 34 vectors accpeted there! I know it was a very small portfolio n I gonna upload loading more.

    And about GL, when I upload vectors and get the rejecton:” We have finished reviewing your seller application and submissions. Unfortunately your images did not meet our standards for quality, execution or commercial value. We regret that we cannot accept your seller application.” . Can you show me some way to get my vectors accepted at GL, coz I’m totally new here! Hope my question not bother you!

    Thankz for reading my question n looking forward your reply! Thankz in advance!

    Best regards!

    I don’t think there is one right way to do things. Just focus on making quality commercial images and work to improve your style and technique. If you do that, the sales and acceptance should come easier.

    I guess that probably isn’t overly helpful, but there aren’t really any shortcuts or secrets. Just keep drawing images and try to have fun while doing it. That’s what I do.
