Statistic For Your Microstock Portfolio: LookStat

LookStat is an online service that makes it easy for you to track your online sales at multiple micostock agencies sites, by image and automatically. The system obtains your transaction history, matches images across sites and then continuously updates your sales data. In the beta release LookStat is focused on sales tracking, but they will rapidly add support for other features. Ultimately, their goal is to help contributors monitor their online portfolios and help them identify areas of opportunity for increasing their earnings. LookStat believe that analytics are a critical part of microstock and that with better information, everybody wins.

Currently, LookStat support Dreamstime, iStock & Shutterstock and are working on adding support for Fotolia. In addition to integrating more sites, they will be adding trending and more earnings tracking data to enable contributors to see how they are performing and to identify what is working and what is not. Also, they plan to release per image sales statistics in the near future.

At the moment, the LookStat service is free of charge to all users however they do intend to charge a subscription for the service in the near future. While LookStat is still working out the details, the service will remain affordable and will always be free of charge to users earning less than $50/month from microstock.

Note: I am signed up and trying it out. The first impression is very good! I will write about them again and let you know of my adventure with them.
