We all probably upload works to most or all of biggest agencies - shutter, istock, fotolia.....  The goal of this thread is to find out which of the "low earners" could be good earner. (most of them earns only cents and it is waste of time to work with them)

I knew what the 'essence' of this thread was, but I don't understand why you're asking the question, there's a poll on the right whereby a number of people have entered information that means the agencies listed in the "low earner" section are, for the high majority of the people who voted 'low earners' , but now you're asking the exact same people which of the agencies they said were low earners give them a good income - so without pointing out the obvious oxymoron  :) none of the agencies in the poll results under "low earners" provide a good income for the majority of people here, because if they did they wouldn't be in the "low earners section"

You may have noticed that one or two people have mentioned they do quite well on the odd agency in the list, therefore your answer to which one's could be a good earner is - any of them.

I know your point of this thread, but the only way you'll get your answer is by uploading to them all and then make your own decision.

So if your images always get first row treatment you can make serious money, at least until too many get favoured ;)

In which case the "low earners" would still, within your earnings, be a low earner in comparison to the top and middle tier  ;)

ok, ok i admit - the name of the topic isn't very good - sorry for my bad english,( i'm not good at it, i know )
but about the Poll results - it doesn't always reflect real potential of microstock sites. For example, some time ago  i've already tried some of the "low earners" category sites - all of them were completely unsuccesful... So after that i didn't paid any attention to site called graphicriver , because it was somewhere in the bottom of the list... - i thought it would be just another waste of time there... but  one day one microstocker reccomended it to me  so ,i registered to this site and now it's one of my best earners. I'm sure that it doesn't matter what theme or style vectors You create - You'll be much more succesful there than in most of "low tier" or even "middle tier" agencies.

next great earner from "low earners " category - clipartof. Take a look at this:

^ It may be a case where the polls don't reflect accurate statistics for vector only portfolios, I'm guessing the majority of voters have a mainly photo based portfolio. Having had a look at the list it appears that there are eight sites in the list that are vector or video only sites.

...I make a few hundred bucks per month at an agency that isn't even on that list at right (no, I'm not telling anyone which agency, don't ask)...

   In one another post Helix wrote this line and i found it very suprising - it's hard to believe for me that it is possible. Currently there really lot of info about microstock, so i thought all good and profitable agencies are already well known to everyone. I wonder where did he find this goldmine :)
Anyway, once again i've heard some good words about clipdealer - i guess it's time to try my luck there :)

I am doing that too this minute.. regarding the helix agency I dont know which is it.. but I have one not a new one that aint there too, just finished my upload there, I will let you know, only you :D
Last month I made over $100 on vectors at an agency which is not on the list (secret codeword 'Rodeo').

Thanks for sharing. I knew this agency but i didn't think it has potential. Perhaps i'm wrong. maybe it's worth to try it.

P.S. Trere are lot of notes about strange name of this thread :) i admit - i've made a mistake there. I should have called it "Small agencies - good income"  - it would be more logical;)
