You mean this one? https://www.backyardstockphotos.com

Yeah, it looks good! Nice, clean, modern, simple.

Now all the readers of this forum will be able to go there and source their stock photo needs! My publicity job is done!

Oh wait, the readers of this forum are contributors  :(

I do agree with most people here that the website looks very dated. It should feel modern and visually appealing, and this simply doesn't.

Also, equally important: the Swoozo name and logo need updating. Have a professional logo designer design a unique identity for your agency. The Sherlock Holmes silhouette looks like a free clipart icon and the swoozo font is very boring and ugly.

Also make sure all English translations are 100% correct. One small translation error could put off a potential customer.

Looks like there is no way to bulk submit images, you have to click through every upload, even selecting categories.
So it's a big NO to upload here.
I even wonder how those 180.000 images got up there with this condition.
The only way I would give this site a try would if i could submit hundreds of images with 3-4 mouseclicks maximum
Selecting categories and 6-7 clicks for every single file.. no way

Your search box should clear when we type in new terms.

Yes. By the way, we're all new and I see that there's a cookie that remembers last search, but also a button to clear search. That's useful.

And although Sue pointed this out, it's still wrong, search should say separated by commas not "Terms separate by comma..." or possibly Separate Search Terms with commas...

Hello Chichikov,

yes, Swoozo is a German agency (Berlin based).
What problems do you have with the "Germans"?
We have no problems with foreign sellers.

Best regards,
Rayk

Never said that I have any problem with Germans

The three I worked with (so 100% of the ones I worked with) were unfriendly, unfair and rude
And with this the sales were almost inexistant

Not complicated at all, very simple, but it looks like it was designed by a designer, and it looks modern

Maybe my own site in the footer looks modern as well - of course it doesn't sell very much, unfortunately!! OK, correct that, it sells virtually nothing!

Yes it looks good....but you probably don't need telling marketing of sites is so important. I think many contributors underestimate that...there's a reason why sites offering a very high percentage payout struggle ;-).

I agree 100%. Although certain images rank high on Google images, the conversion rate to sales is negligible. The trouble is, I've never found any way to actually promote the site to the potential buying audience that makes any difference. Unless you have a real niche, then self hosted stock sites have been a complete waste of time and money for me.

This month has been great though - someone bought a small image for 99c.... That is almost the BME!

We're thinking about a new version of Swoozo.
Maybe also based on Blockchain Technology.
But at the moment it's just an idea ...
In any case, we are constantly developing the website!

Best regards,
Raykl

Think first about the customer. What is the benefit to the customer of blockchain technology?

If you can't explain it in a sentence without jargon, then don't bother with blockchain.

Get the design of the main website right before you do anything else.
