I've uploaded a few recently, because it's easy, but nothing but crickets.

Dead. I used to see ads for them on Facebook and the like, now nothing. I suspect they pulled the plug on marketing in the run up to relaunch, but something must be up because the relaunch has been in the making for ages now.

It doesn't matter if you could upload a thousand.   There's no buyers currently.

The third from the beginning of the year!
That's great, no?

Message from GL Stock Images last week:  '.... We will be releasing a new design and new features in the upcoming weeks and believe contributors should see a spike in sales as a result .....'

they can release all features they want, if the buyers are not using their site, nothing will change, the most important part that will help spike sales is marketing, marketing, marketing, and marketing, etc etc etc etc

their site doesnt even have tumbleweed, thats how much nothing happens

The problem is also what is it that they really have to market thats any different from the pack? I suspect once you fall out of view its very hard to return.

I'm stuck at $49.92. "One more sale and I can cash out my money", I said to myself in September of last year.

I'm waiting more than 10 months now for that single sale...

Hi All,

We do not have a large team of developers working on this.  GL is a significant app with lots of components and moving parts, and the redesign and development requires time, diligence, and testing.  We expect the new app to be live within the next 4 weeks.

Indeed, marketing has been on halt until the redesign as I've mentioned in other posts.  We are adding various features that will make GL more competitive in terms of the functionality we are offering our buyers, making for a better and more efficient purchasing process.

The new app will catch GL up to speed technology-wise.  The app has not been updated in several years, prior to new ownership taking over.  So the technology, and what we are able to offer to buyers is of course not where we want it to be.  We are investing in our technology before investing in marketing.  Our redesign is not just a makeover, but it is a much needed technology update that will yield much better results in our marketing efforts. 

In addition to the new features that are being developed, there are various markets that the former owners of GL have not approached, and these are areas we expect to be moving into in the very near future (ie: video, audio, etc.). 

We're still here, working.  Emails are always answered, calls are answered, payments are always made promptly, image review is done daily, and we are here to answer questions.

So we have rebranding per their email - GLStock.com.

New stuff for buyers - no mention of new stuff for contributors, nor new marketing initiatives.....so a bit disappointing.....had hoped for something new.....

We'll see......

We haven't made many significant changes for contributors, this is true.  In this industry, where changes to contributors always seems like drops in royalty rates, things will remain stable.  Regarding our internal business & marketing plans, that is not information we are going to make public.  I assure you, we didn't spend a year revamping the site to let it sit idly.

It all looks good to me.  I like the new logo.  Just need to see sales picking up again now.  I think that's going to be a much harder task than the site redesign but I wish you the best of luck.
