Please chose three of agencies!
After 7 days we should start to promote  "The winning agency" on every possible way!
Synergistic effect should be successful, if  thousands of contributors do the same thing in same time!

Let it be our reward for the best agency with benefits for all of us!

Also "a warning" to greediest!

Thank you!

Contributors!
Best paying agencies may not be the most friendlier agency! Our part of earnings is the most important thing here...
We are trying to get more money from our work, not to bring new customers to best and big earners with low royalty rate...
So if you agree with me, try to give more chance to friendly agencies which are giving bigger "part of cake" to us!

I don't currently submit to any of those. Haven't we tried this before and you can never get a consensus? I guess it doesn't hurt to try again though.

Symbiostock is not an agency, it is a way of selling on your own, and of course is what anyone involved should be promoting (when it is off the ground)

Poll results will be consensus... We can try, on social networks, our websites, emails etc.
I think it is good way to fight for our interests...

Please keep on mind that our part of earnings should be on the first place in poll decisions, no matter how big agency is, or how much money we get from them at the end of month!

After poll's end we can start together, 1 month of synergistic  promotion will be enough to see results!

P.S.

Poll's agencies are rated agencies in "Microstock Poll results (column right)

Hey, if you make the most at those site, you might as well defend your territory. That seems to be what most people do.

I would really like to support the "better" sites, but I am trying to do this as a business.  If the "better" sites supported me...as a small timer and newbie... I would be happy to help them.  The problem is the sales I get are at the big two.

The only way I can afford to generate enough content for the "better" sites to be interested is to feed and support the big guys.

Every new customer on GL StockImages mean more money in my pocket...
If that customer goes to iStock due to better Getty's marketing that mean less money in my pocket!
What should I do?
I can promote my GL portfolio,for example!
It's a big difference between 16% and 50%...

 After seven days, when we will start our campaign, so just promote your portfolio of winning agency! That's it!
If we do together, we could make good thing for all of us!


Less than 7 days till big marketing impact on this industry!!!
Fight for your effort!


PREPARE YOURSELF FOR OUR "SHOCK AND AWE"!

I made the most money on Canstock but I voted for Shutterstock here. I just like their professionalism and they also sell a lot of pictures. There are a few parts I still don't like about them but life can't be entirely pink.

Really?   :o
Was that for a month or over an extended period of time?

If someone has 1000 images on Canstock and 50 on SS that might work (no suggestion that is the actual case here)

Thank you guys!
I think this is the easiest way for maximum possible results!

It's still weird to me that other opposite pool today has more votes than this...
This doesn't mean that we have to stop selling on" non-friendly" sites, just attempt to promote better deals for us, with message of course ;-)...

This could be an opportunity to get some of the low earners that pay the most a bump in popularity with the buyers.  Imagine if Veer became a big player!

Sounds awful.  Poor sales, low upload limits, slow reviews, lots of rejections.  Veer is the last agency I'd want to promote.

Complaining still seems to be easier for some folks than actually trying to do something for the better.

I love your initiative and will be part of the campaign. Even the smallest bit might help.

It wasn't necessarily started as a complaint thread. It was more to get a complete picture. If Agency X is simultaneously the favorite and least favorite agency, should that be the one you promote? It doesn't look like that's the case though.

Yes cthoman!
Your intentions are obviously positive! Picture can be clearer with the opposite poll...
But as Pilens said: "Complaining still seems to be easier for some folks than actually trying to do something for the better."

I can't imagine why anyone would vote for iS and FT, I see their ads all over the internet anyway (in addition to the obvious). last night I was playing with my school's fair website and they have stock images from FT that i can use (geez, I hope they were paid for!).

More buyers would most likely change everything except the rejection policy.  More buyers would increase sales which should enable Veer to increase their staff to run a more efficient business to benefit us contributors.  I like the money the average sale generates at this site!

When I see results for shutterstock  :o

Perhaps some contributors think it's a poll for "The best contributor money agency".
