Hello Everyone, I'm Nuwan, microstock producer.
As all of us are not 100% happy about exiting marketplaces.
What will be the ideal website to sell microstock?

As the first point,

Give feedback for projects in early stages such as a creative brief.
Instead of rejecting items, the support team works closely with creators and provides tips for improvements.

Love to see more ideas...

I appreciate my experience working with AdobeStock. They have a big background in Creativity with their software so I feel more comfortable there even though I contribute to about 10 sites.

The question is the wrong way round if you want to have a commercially viable site. It starts with what is the ideal site for buyers? Which is an easy to use site that delivers quality relevant content at a fair price. I don't think most buyers want super cheap but would pay if a site saves them time in the search. So for me the only thing that could work is a step change in search capability or a business model no one has thought of yet. There is no room for another "me too" agency.

I would love a market that would bulk buy my crappy non selling files for a price.
Oh, wait, then I would have to let 95% of my port gone forever!

Anyway, jokes aside if there was a real, actual, creative team that posted briefs from clients and not "we heard", "our search", "they ask" i would be interested. But this is alρeady covered from other sites like tongal, etc. Take a look at OVC onlinevideocontests or for more advanced check Youtube creative something brand partners (sorry I cannot recall the name or link of it) services, quite many agencies that give briefs to freelancers or individuals to shoot and edit in exchange of a fixed budget. Not really transparent, you don't get paid for a concept or for an original idea. You don't always know who won or if payed (perhaps a false statement / that is what i believe).
