I got the following email today from Shutterstock:

Thank you for your valuable contributions to the Shutterstock collection. We would like to invite you, as one of Shutterstocks most successful artists, to participate in a new program called the Bridge to Bigstock. Opt in now to increase your revenue and save valuable time.

As you may know, Shutterstock and Bigstock are two stock image sites owned by Shutterstock and marketed to different types of customers. Bigstock is the credit-based sister brand of Shutterstock. Many of our artists upload to both sites and achieve successful sales on both.

Heres what happens when you opt in to the Bridge to Bigstock program:

-We will copy all of your approved Shutterstock imagesincluding current and future images automatically over to Bigstock.
- All your current and future approved Shutterstock images will be for sale on both sites.

You are eligible to participate whether you have an existing Bigstock account or not. When you opt in, youll get the benefits of having your full portfolio on two sites, while only uploading to Shutterstock.

Our goal is to make the Bigstock collection larger and more diverse to meet the needs of our growing customer base.

Join the Bridge to Bigstock program to enjoy a time-saving way to present your images to more customers and grow your earnings.

As always, we appreciate your contributions to Shutterstock and were happy to answer any questions.

Best regards,
The Shutterstock Team

I already have about half of my portfolio on BigStock, but not all of it. This is mainly due to their submission process taking too long. There are multiple steps, categories, etc, and it just wasn't convenient. Sales there used to be good, but have really slowed down over the past few months for some reason.

Has anyone experienced good sales with BigStock, and would you recommend joining or not joining this new "Bridge to Bigstock" program? I am leaning towards joining it.

Woops!   :-[   

Thanks, gostwyck! I hadn't heard of it before, and thought it was a new program!
