Passive Income and Microstock Earnings for April 2013

Well, it is that time again. Time for another monthly passive income update. April was the best month of the year so far, and my 5th best month ever. It was only about $20 better than March, but I’ll take it. Here’s the breakdown:

Clipartof led the way again with 30% of passive earnings. Shutterstock clung to 2nd with 16%. It was followed closely by MyStockVectors (16%) and Toon Vectors (14%). Dreamstime was 5th at 8%. Can Stock (4%), GL (4%), and Big Stock (3%) trailed the pack. And the rest were 1% or under.

Everything still seems to be growing, so I can’t really complain. It would be nice to add another agency or two to the ones I regularly submit to, but everything is working now. So, I guess I’ll just keep plugging away.

Up next, May. May was my best month last year, so I hope I can repeat its success this year.

    Your uploading, keywording and drawing. Why you call it passive income?

    Well, nothing is truly passive. You had to have done some work at some point. That said, I have several sites that I haven’t done anything on in a few years and they continue to earn money. I still earn money and get sales when I go on vacation, so there are a lot of passive aspects to it. Much more so than doing freelance work where if I’m not working, I’m not making any money.
