Passive Income and Microstock Earnings for August 2013

Posted on September 3, 2013 | Category :Business of Illustration | No Comments

Well, it wasn’t the worst month of the year. It was the second worst. Take that July. I’m not sure what has been going on this summer, but it has been pretty awful. Hopefully, the summer slowdown is over. Here’s the breakdown:

Clipartof was number one again with 32% of passive earnings. Shutterstock was second with 15%. Dreamstime continued its trend of better numbers and finished 3rd (14%). MyStockVectors and Toon Vectors were 4th and 5th with 12% each. GL and Can Stock rounded out the significant earners. Both were at 6%. Everybody else was 1% or under.

I removed my portfolio at Big Stock and Veer. Big Stock’s RPD was slipping to around 50 cents, so it just didn’t seem worth it to continue on there. Veer had slipped to very few sales, and their multitude image partners was a little disturbing to me.
