On the forum I read various opinions about websites for selling photos. I am curious what do you think about this site www.bestartstock.com ? I will be thankful for your feedback and any comments.


Lets see. The most affordable and competitive prices. And they can be used for almost anything. Stock is already too cheap. And were already constantly losing opportunities to make more money by removing extended licenses and other benefits. I want prices and commissions to go up. What youre proposing is just contributing toward going further downward. No thanks.

My thread here is not for getting more contributors. Finding buyers is more important. He is only for opinions and possible advice. On my web site you do not lose extended licenses. There is also a rights managed license option that can be chosen by the seller. It does not depend on me that prices on the market are falling, but they remain at a stable level. Analyzing the level of payments for sellers, I see that they are more advantageous than competitors. Only the level of the maximal subscription lags behind some competitors, but I'm working on it. I am thinking of introducing a percentage for sellers at 60 percent and differentiating this from the level of sales. It was between 40 and 60 percent? But I am not entirely sure how it will grow and generate more costs, it will be necessary to lower this percentage. It will not be nice. Maybe it's better to stay at this level?

Slippery slope. Getting buyers with no product won't work. And just to clear this up...if you don't already know, this is mainly a contributor forum.  You are getting feedback from a contributor perspective.  If you want to keep shouting that this thread is not for getting more contributors, perhaps you should find a buyer forum somewhere that will give you the answers you want to hear....or not.

I forgot to add that it is only for this moment. The reason is simple, the web page is still incomplete for contributors, as you can see. This forum is perfect for me, I have already implemented some of the comments received. I am now working on rules for sellers and I will be grateful for the comments and expectations in this area.

I think that you're definitely not ready to take on contributors. I don't think it's the "best way to sell your photos and graphics online". I would just ditch that, if you had some stock friends or something you could co-op with them but you're not going to be an agency.

In my opinion you should concentrate on selling your own work. You need to come up with some niche area if anybody is going to buy off you direct, why come to your site instead of buying off a major agency ?

You're right. I will change this title to "You will sell your photos and graphics online" or "You can sell your photos and graphics online" maybe it will sound better? Besides, I will be persevering, I do not plan to compete with the biggest on the market, but I want to find my niche place even. There are many smaller agencies on the market and they operate. I do not know how they started, I have to do it myself.

What niche do you have which isn't covered by the big agencies?

I would like, for example, to offer isolated objects with "png" extensions. You can find these files in content type - premium. https://www.bestartstock.com/stock-photo/the-concept-help-you-use-your-computer-19290.html

Bestartstock is deadly alike a4stock!

I think that above mentioned stuff should explain to you everything.

Look at the table on the right here and the number of sites and how little the ones outside the top ten earn. You really have to be offering something special to break into this market and I don't see what it is.

Yes, they explained everything to me.
Congratulations that you believed this company and made money. Have they already paid you? What percentage was it from the sale?
Who will buy such a photo without MR? http://a4stockphotos.com/stock-photo/patrol-with-dog-12251.html - You can see that it bought a lot of people, just for what?
Great quality, it's a shame to have something to do with it - http://a4stockphotos.com/stock-photo/docks-9714.html
Did you sign up there without knowing how much you will earn and without knowing who you are signing the contract with?

Hello my friend,

I just visit on your website.
I think it's better you start with some "unique" photos and design
to impress & bring customers!.
I used same script as yours I think. (CMSAccount?)
I made my own stock photos website and prices because of my "unique" items! :)
Now even slowly, getting better result....!

Be unique be special!
All the best!

In my opinion, just about every comment so far is a good point.  A lot of work still needs to be done.  Applause for the effort.  Keep at it!

I like some of your rendered alphabets.

Did you design the original typefaces yourself?

I design my own typefaces, that's why they are the simplest
