Hello everybody,

im a little bit successful on IS, have uploaded a lot of my pics on DT (waiting for DLs) and waiting to be accepted on SS (special thanks to some people for helping by DT and SS, they know who i mean ;)).
The question is: Should i also upload to StockXpert, 123RF and BS? Is it worth trying?

Comments are very welcome.

Have fun and downloads.

You should definitively try StockXpert: I know that not every one is successful here, but for me it SS, IS and StockXpert are the top earners and FT / DT are far away.

I would try Fotolia next.

Sorry about that, but i "hate" fotolia. You know about the rejections, stolen images e.g.

I am just starting with this, but I already had some sales at StockXpert, I would definitely try there.

Well, I am often tempted just to pull the plug on those agencies, but just this morning I  blogged about how at the end of the day, they actually make up about 20% of my overall income.  The amount looks pitiful next to SS or IS, but it definitely makes a difference if you look at the longer term.   

Right now if you make $1000 per year, $200 would be from the smaller sites.
Next year you might make $1000 per week, so it would be an extra $800 each month.   Somehow seems like a lot more, yet it's the same percentage. 

Also, if you have entered all the data on the photo already, it doesn't add too much work on your part to upload.   I think I just have to learn a little patience.

For me StockXpert is within the top 3 earner, so for StockXpert I would say definitely "yes".

123 and BS are quite far behind, but their performance isn't neglectable. It's better than Crestock, Most, snapvillage, featurepics and many others.

Fotolia has drawbacks as was mentioned, but financially it performs better than 123rf and BigStock.

For me, 123 is in 4th place, StockXpert and bigstock are three times worse earners than 123rf for me.

My total earning split after 9 month of microstock (6 months in SS, 3 months in StockXpert):
IS      40.1%
SS     35.5%
DT       8.2%
FT       6.7%
BigStock     4.4%
123     3.0 %
StockXpert     1.9%
