With picWorkflow I’ve spent a LOT of time trying to come up with a viable, and reliable stats/analytics service for microstock and I’ve come to a conclusion… it’s damned near impossible to do well. Keeping up with changes in the agency pages, and collecting/collating all your image data into a usable form which offers real value is really difficult. In fact, it’s beyond my ability to implement and maintain.
The same cannot be said for Luis and Oliver at Stock Performer… Their tool for analysing your microstock sales and performance really is FANTASTIC, well built, easy to use, well maintained and damned good to look at too… I can’t recommend it enough.
