For those who have supplied email addesses to Stocksy, has anyone heard back from Bruce? If so, what was the response? No rush really, just wondering.

From what I've read, they were overwhelmed.

Disappointing, nothing yet. For my taste the silence is a little bit to long. Yes there's always the secrecy tactic to build hype. But you can not play this game forever.

They accepted my first 3 and now I'm uploading the rest of my portfolio.  Sold 42 so far at an average of $92.  Would be nice wouldn't it?

I haven't heard a thing and don't expect to for a while.

I guess I didn't inquire, but I wouldn't expect to hear anything if I did. They seem to be still getting organized and ready. Give it some time. These things don't get built overnight.

Stocksy has peaked my interest.  Will it be the next be thing? It could be as most of us have it on our radars. I guess we just have to wait and see what it will be about.

Curious.....absolutely!  Heard anything?.....Nope.   Facebook group....Nope.

Obviously, I realize this will take a bit to get Stocksy off the ground sales wise but I would like to know more of the details as it may (or may not) affect some of my business decisions and planning going forward depending on whether I want to be part of this or not.  Come on Stocksy, spill the beans! :)

Boy, I've seen this picture before.

Stocksy. Great name. Memorable, short, easy to say and hard to misspell. If you look at the list of agency names on the right side of this page, stocksy is probably the best one.

Is there room for a new agency startup? One which has learned from the mistakes of others and has some creative ideas about doing microstock licensing in a better way?

It's alright. Kind of a keyword poor name, but that doesn't pose a huge disadvantage. I'm sure they'll get plenty of word of mouth.

I think Stocksy is a perfect name, much better than most I see in the column on the right.

How about Dreamstime? That name has never made sense to me.

I doubt that they were expecting the coverage they got through Sean's unexpected ousting from iStock.  Give them time, even though I'm as eager as everyone else to know the details, it's in none of our interests to have them rushed into releasing information before they're ready.

If the person who invented the wheel announced they had made a new invention, you'd be very intrigued and buy shares in the idea. Question is, will it better the original?

I'm not particularly curious in so far as this new business is a million miles away from putting money in my bank account yet...

Oh the harsh realities...

So how does a new company achieve enough success to put money in our pockets without content to grow the company?

If we never support any new companies, we're going to be stuck with the companies we've got forever.

It drives me nuts that we all sit around here complaining about pay cuts, diminishing earnings, etc. And then when companies come along who are willing to pay us better, we don't want to bother supporting them.

I'm not saying jump on board with everyone who comes along offering 50%, but in some cases it's in our own best interests to do it. And when it's done by someone who knows the business, and has a proven record of success, I don't see how we can't want to be a part of this.

Haven't heard anything and certainly don't expect to anytime soon, if ever.
If given the chance I would most likely contribute but I suspect it will be by invitation only for awhile and I'm nothing but a very small player in this game.
It will take alot of $, alot of time, alot of good planning to make it successful.  Sure hope they can pull if off but I'm reluctant to regard Stocksy as the next Top Tier champ in the forseeable future.

My opinion ? they will expect contributors to bring buyers into Stocksy, which is a "viral marketing" concept not too far from what the PoD sites do already, see FAA, Zazzle, RedBubble, etc

Unfortunately it's never easy to live just on buyers coming via word of mouth, Stocksy could be a booming success or a complete disaster.

all we can do is to wait and see.

I'm not so excited, it will take a lot of time before they become operative. For now I see it as an early marketing, words but no explanation.
When they will be ready to begin we know for sure, there will be an official announcement.
I hope for all (us and them); only few things, simple and clear terms and conditions, great website platform for MR, upload, category etc.
Lastly I expect that they want only exclusive pictures.

You cannot compare POD with stock. A typical POD customer would buy just 1 thing or at most several products to decorate their home. A stock customer who is a designer will have a constant demand for images, depending on their business volume.

Also, there is a group of contributors who are also media buyers. I think most of these buyers would switch entirely to a co-op site once it has a sufficient library for their needs.

I'm pumped about stocksy (amongst other reasons) because it is a co-op.  To me, that is huge and very exciting. People have talked on here many many times about starting a co-op, now someone has finally had the ambition to do something about it.. and really, it was the perfect person / group of people to do so.
