My pond5 sales is down in January.  Shutterstock sales finally surpassed for the first time since I joined SS about 2 years ago.  Is this the trend?  Are the buyers switching to SS from Pond5?  Or is it just me?  Anybody seeing the same trend this month?

 
"By all accounts, Pond5 has been doing quite well recently. The New York-based company saw revenues of $19 million in 2014, up from $12 million in 2013, and has relocated to 30,000 square feet of swanky new office space in Manhattans posh SoHo neighborhood. Its also been on a bit of a hiring push, adding a VP of finance in October and looking for marketing and operations executives."

I guess we got all our answers today via TechCrunch   ;) http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/20/pond5-issues-80000-free-media-assets-with-the-launch-of-its-public-domain-project/

Oh well...30,000 square feet swanky office in posh NY hood had priority than actually selling our media files. Employing VP executives prior to folks who will actually pick up phones when buyers battle time zone .... hmmmm

Maybe this news will make you go away and stay away.
Congrats P5! Keep moving and growing.

For me, Pond5 is on first place for the footage sales. Yes, January is quite slow compared to other months, but this is normal as in any business... I would not bother with what Pond5 or Shutterstock doing (it's up to them), more I want is to be basing what I can offer better. If you think someone of you may be better in this business, and it should work that we all become millionaires, please create such a site, and I'm on your side :) ;)

We owe every once of Pond5's success to our sellers, absolutely. It's thanks to the thousands of artists (and each of you!) who provide our marketplace with fantastic material that we are able to offer what we can today. Please don't think that Pond5 doesn't realize that. Everyone in this company that I've ever talked to feels the same way, "We owe it all to the artists."

That's why be bill ourselves as an artist friendly marketplace.

Pond5 has one of the largest collections of stock media on the Internet. Now, we also hold THE largest collection of easily accessible public domain content as well. Pond5 pays its artists the highest percentage in the industry, no one else has a 50/50 split. (If I'm wrong about that, please do correct me.) If we're doing well, it's because our artists are doing well. It's always been that way, and it always will be.

Yes, I like Pond5 a lot because of 50/50 split.  I want Pond5 to keep up with the Shutterstock because it's good for us contributors.

Keep up the positive vibes and productivity everyone. We all create and are part of the same community. The SS planted troll does not recognize a successful business model and marketplace when it sees one. But I suspect it is just here to ruffle feathers and disturb the peace. Trolls are brave and bold with internet anonymity--no matter how much it cries and complains the fact is that all these marketplaces make us money and showcase our work.
