Gone down to half in 5 weeks.  what just happened there?  Pond5 is accelerating instead during that time.

Constant sales in my case, slight upward trend.

No Free Lunch

Have not read correctly. You asked for videos but I have no videos. Sorry! So my answer is irrelevant for you.

Pond5 sales picked up significantly in February for some reason.  I make more money per video on Pond5 than Shutterstock.  So, it's not a bad thing to have buyer moving from Shutterstock to Pond5.

Don't hold your breath! ... sales picked up in February probably ONLY because P5 Public Domain launch that produced temporary traffic increase. Sales will go down again...until another PR stunt to get clicks and links.
With their experimenting strategies there is no steady flow.  :(

SS obviously want their Video business to fail. Why else would have they developed Bigstock Footage which now has 88,000 clips and counting - up from 30,000 a few months ago. Unfortunate they had to go and ruin a good thing.

When did Big Stock start?  Is it ridiculously cheap?

Shutterstock was my salvation from the past 6 months, but January was not good and February is dead! No sales at all.
This is very strange and it looks like a Deja-vu from what has happened to Istock.
If the fall happens I'll be forced to leave this business for good. :(

This week has been much better than past few weeks.  Hopefully it'll pick up the pace from here.
