Just wanted to report that I was surfing my hometown's newspaper for an article about a relative, and noticed that a huge vertical banner ad for StockFresh was present along the left side of the content. Maybe they have started their marketing campaign? Seems like a great time to do so, that's for sure!

Saw some web ads as well, they looked nice!

Great news. I'd love to see Stockfresh make it. Neat looking site, fair commission and the fact that StockXpert kept their 50% commission till the end (as far as I remember - correct me if I'm wrong) makes me want to support this site.

I also noticed a large Stockfresh banner on failblog.org, a site I check almost daily.
Nice to see this and hopefully sales will pick up finally!

I see Dreamstime adverts there everytime I go to the site which like yourself is practically daily :)

Woo hoo!  My first StockFresh sale.   Only $1 - but that's the equivalent of 4 downloads at Shutterstock. (And it is was an image SS rejected for potential copyright issues).  Plus, they just accepted 100% of my 24 uploaded images - all within an hour after uploading.   I agree - would love this site to make it.

Yeah, here too :)

I have a suspicion that the Stockfresh banner is targeted towards people like me who browse microstock sites and forums 90% of the time. Because the Stockfresh banner is everywhere now, most recently I saw it on garfield.com. Yes, it's on GARFIELD.COM. I guess for people not involved with or interested in microstock the banner shows something else

the banner has been following me everywhere, although I think it's taken a break for the Easter weekend. Nice to see it though.

Ok I'm trying to get excited about StockFresh.  I look at their site and see that it says "We believe in fair compensation and fair pricing."   And right next it that it says "subscription packages - 35 cents per download".

I couldn't find that..but there are a lot of pages and I just went to the homepage. I did find in the 'why shop with us' widget, "We take pride in the fact that our photographer commissions are among the highest in the industry. If you shop with us, your money goes to the right place to those who work hard to deliver these great images."

Which sounds good. I should really start submitting more to them (I managed to sneak in somehow), as it may be a good investment for the future, the only thing is they don't accept much of what I send, I've sent 92, but only 27 accepted. They have gone in to the Big agency philosophy on accepting images, I guess you have to think big to be successful, but new agencies need images. I was shopping on DepositPhotos recently, they have 3 million images now and I can pretty much find everything I need, but on agencies with 500,000 to a million photos, I don't know why buyers would go there instead of the others.

edit: replaced wrong word

^^^They're far more lenient than the big sites.  I really don't think they should lower their standards any more just to get a bigger collection.  I just upload my best and they usually accept over 95%.

Do we want to contribute to the success of yet another 35 cent subscription site?

We could always just submit to macros. All the microstock agencies are becoming more about subscriptions. They all want a piece of ss's pie. It wouldn't be wise for an agency not to have subs, when the other agencies have them.

Well, that's what I'm wondering.  We all complain about IS driving it down to 22 cents, and wonder if SS is steadily herding all their buyers to subscriptions, and talk about how subscriptions are the nail in the coffin.  Should we be getting behind StockFresh if it's just going to be a clone of SS?  What's the point in helping them siphon off some small portion of SS's business, just so we have the hassle of submitting to more sites and can start getting our 35 cents from another source?

Yes, u make a convincing argument actually. But you just can't stop it though, there are too many of us already clambering in to try and get in to Stockfresh as it is. If some of us take your view point, it doesn't stop everyone else from piling in. I know some people who refuse to upload to ss because it's mostly a sub site, however they only lose revenue because of it. It's all going to get siphoned off eventually and we'll be blaming the sites, when it was actually us who nailed the coffin because of uploading. It's catch 22 in a way though.
