It was only late 2014 when I decided to start putting some real effort into it, so the increase from 2014 to 2015 reflects that. Same with 2016, I kept growing my portfolio and trying to improve the content I was producing. I honestly can’t see me doubling my sales from 2016 to 2017, but purely based on the last six months being higher than the first… I’m looking at around a 25% increase.
I think everyone hits a kind of wall at some point. I mean, if you upload ten files in a month when you have 10 files then your portfolio has doubled from one month to the next. But if you upload 10 files in a month when you already have 200 files, then that’s only a 5% increase. At the this stage, I think the only hope for me to carry on doubling my income would be to come up with some crazy strategy to create much more desirable files, or finally figure out how to make top selling logo stings for After Effects. Or learn Wordpress!
