Free Fotolia-Ranking-Calculator

How long will it take me to reach the next ran­king level at micros­to­ck agen­cy Fotolia*?

That’s not only a mat­ter of ego, but of pure money, becau­se the hig­her your rank, the more per­cen­ta­ge you get for each sale at Fotolia. Because of this I deve­lo­ped a small for­mu­la for myself to esti­ma­te how long it would take until I reach the next level. A befri­en­ded pro­gram­mer hel­ped me now to share my for­mu­la with you. Instructions can be found below the cal­cu­la­tor.

How does the Fotolia-Ranking-Calculator work?
For the cal­cu­la­ti­on you need to ent­er at least three values:

  1. The num­ber of credit sales so far
  2. The num­ber of sub­scip­ti­on sales so far
  3. The total sales of last mon­th
  4. It is optio­nal, but recom­men­ded to ent­er the total sales of the two pre­ce­ding months as well to increa­se the pre­ci­si­on of the cal­cu­la­tor.

Tip: I recom­mend to use the cal­cu­la­tor on the first or second day of a new mon­th for more acu­ra­te and com­pa­ra­ble cal­cu­la­ti­ons (or ent­er the credit and sub­scrip­ti­on sales num­bers only up to the first of the cur­rent mon­th).

How do I get the data?
The info for 1. and 2. you can find in your Fotolia dash­board, see my screen­s­hot below (lan­gua­ge may vary):

The sales num­bers for 3. and 4. you get when you cli­ck on „See my sta­ti­s­tics“ in your dash­board. Then you select the details as shown below and hit „Display sta­ti­s­tics“.

When you ent­e­red the data in the cal­cu­la­tor, sim­ply hit „cal­cu­la­te“ and you get a detail­led ana­ly­sis inclu­ding your aver­a­ge grow­th rate, per­cen­ta­ge of sub­crip­ti­on sales and last, but not least, an esti­ma­ted num­ber of mon­th until you reach your next ran­king level at Fotolia.

Is my pri­va­te data safe?
Yes! I can­not see any data you ent­er in the cal­cu­la­tor! All the cal­cu­la­ti­on is done on your com­pu­ter and if you deci­de to use the login-function, all infor­ma­ti­on will be stored in a coo­kie on your com­pu­ter only. I do not have access to your infor­ma­ti­on. If you want to dele­te your data, sim­ply clear all fiel­ds and cli­ck on “save” or manu­al­ly dele­te the coo­kie from your brow­ser cache.

How do I save and load my data?
The cal­cu­la­tor works without having to log­in. But if you want to save your input and out­put data, you can easi­ly do so by cli­cking the “Save and load your data” box and ente­ring a name. Just choo­se the name you want. Then you can save and load your data until you deci­de to log out.To save muti­ple data, sim­ply ent­er a name in the „save as field“ and cli­ck on „save as“. The data will be saved in the „his­to­ry“ sec­tion and you can com­pa­re how your results chan­ge over the cour­se of some mon­th.

Warning: The data is only saved local­ly on your com­pu­ter by coo­kies, so dele­ting your coo­kies results in dele­ting your data!

  1. Hey Robert,

    the cal­cu­la­tor is not avail­able any­mo­re. Is it just an error on of the web­site or did you take it off your site?

    cheers,

  2. Deine berich­te sind unglaub­li­ch gut. wir den­ken über Stock Fotografie nach, sind jedoch zunächst ein wenig baff, was die Aufwände vs. Ertragsituation anbe­langt. Wir wer­den hier nicht mehr auf­hö­ren zu stö­bern 😉
