Hello everyone!

We just launched stockcreator.io yesterday and would like to share our excitement with you. As contributors, we were using different tools and websites to contribute to stock websites. The first step was 1.5 years ago, by developing our own AI tool for writing the titles, descriptions, and tags. This motivated us to take everything further by developing a platform with all the functionalities into 1.

We are aware that it's a big downside that there are only 4 agencies available now, but more will follow!

To give users the opportunity to try out the platform first, we offer 50 'credits' for free. If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to reach out directly to me via email: [email protected]

You can also stay updated by following us on Instagram/ Facebook/ TikTok: stockcreator.io

Have a great day!

Cheers, Cees

Hi Steve, thank you for reaching out  :)

I would say it's a combination!

50 credits means 50 annotations and uploads to each of the connected platforms. Feel free to have a look around!

Hi Faustvasea, yes but different! Wirestock takes ownership and commission of your work. StockCreator let's you keep full control of your content and revenue. Please visit our website for more info or let me know if you have any further questions.

Cheers, Cees

I am not really planing to paid for selling my stock photos or videos at this time and probobly I will never do it. This is why I quit with Wirestock, but good luck. This days is not really many agencies worth to upload and 4 or 5 I can easy handled. Longer is taking editing and key wording is pretty easy this days also.

Hi fotoroad, I fully understand the platform is not for everybody. It depends on how much content you have, where you distribute it, and which tools you are already used to. Thank you for sharing your experience and opinion!

Hi Cees:

Suggesting, since it seems you are starting out.

a) For the testimonials - why not directly link to those people's profiles/online presences? Initially I thought those were fake testimonials (because the pictures look like 'stock photos') - but investigated a bit further and they do seem to be genuine photographers. Adding direct links would add to the legitimacy.

b) Good job on making your own business, good luck. You should check out one of your main competitors (microstockplus/stocksubmitter) if you haven't already. They've been in the game quite a long time, and they aren't the only one. They aren't the only one though. (There are also very good other 'ai' keywording tools)

c) My 'feeling' (could be mistaken) is that you may find it challenging to get customers, because (at the moment) you don't really seem to offer anything new. Although - it seems you've found at least 5 ppl (from the testimonials) which I suppose is pretty good.

d) How 'good' are your backend prompts (for the "ai"?) Assuming you are using chatGPT/API on the backend. I find a lot of the prompts companies are using still provide buggy results from chatGPT - i.e., nonsensical/irrelevant titles, inaccurate titling of images/videos/etc... Have you tested this on a large set of different images (i.e., 1,000+ unique types of images/videos/etc?)

e) Pricing seems a bit 'high' - but does seem microstock plus/stocksubmitter has found success with similar pricing... but it seems a lot of 'microstockers' barely make ends meet, yet alone "$16,000" from a single agency like Envato as you have in one in your sample images... Curious - is that based on a real profile (i.e., yours?) If so - the earnings say "$69,212" between 4 agencies (envato/shutterstock/adobe/freepik) for a "single" year...

Based on what I've seen people post here (as well as personal earnings) - that seems rather unrealistic for the 'average' microstocker. I'm sure there are probably some very established contributors making that and much more in the current environment dealing with things like east indian spammers/thieves, agencies 'good news' e-mails, etc - but it seems many post of "look at how much money I'm making" (esp. in this forum) tend to be at most in the $1k/month range - usually between 20-30 different agencies, let along 4 like you have here...

f) Please also make the 'automatic picture' update stop if I click it/etc on the pricing page. It is difficult to read when the flipbook constanly rotates between the images

g) Also - in one of your sample images on the pricing page, please remove the 'ethnic diversity' 'folder' sample stuff, that is such an overused/annoying term pushed by the WEF/UN/etc designed to try and impoverish western nations... the mantra of "diversity inclusion equity" is actually an acronym of "d.i.e." (which is what the pyschopaths pushing this agenda) are trying to do... in addition to companies like "ipsos mori" polls (which is latin for "they die") pushing the convid scam (never was a 'virus', still isn't - poison was in the masks/'tests' & ultimate 'shots, etc)... the 'ethnic diversity' "d.i.e. // "diversity inclusion equity") is part of that sick nonsense...

Anyways, other than that - good luck! :)

I really would have stopped at f)... you sounded like a reasonably well-rounded, reasonably intelligent member of society up until that point. You always have to go and ruin it though!

Your Google translation is wrong.
Ipsos is either a nomen or the plural pronoun of ipse. This would then mean themselves and not they. Depending on the context, mori has the meaning: dying, blackberry, law, regulation, etc.

Latin cannot be translated, but must be analysed in context.

But it doesn't matter. There is also a comprehensible explanation for the naming:

Our name - Ipsos MORI - was formed in 2005 by the merger of Ipsos, founded in France in 1975 with its named derived from the Latin phrase ipso facto and Market and Opinion Research International (MORI), founded in the UK in 1969. This merger created our name: Ipsos MORI, it explained.

Incidentally, I would also be careful with the MSG Forum. MSG = mori sadistici grex

Hi SuperPhoto,

Thank you for taking the time to share your valued opinion!

a. Noted, thanks!
b. We have been using them for years, in combination with Microstock+, Microstock Analytics etc. We are not inventing the wheel, just putting pieces together.
c. Challenge accepted! ;)
d. It's a trained ML model that will keep improving over time. Not a Chatgtp model. Yes, we tested it!
e. We do not take commissions, and if an 'average' person makes $1000 a month, $20 seems pretty fair no?
f. Noted, it is very stimulating.. :)
g. It's just a placeholder!

If you have any more questions or suggestions, please let me know!

Cheers, Cees

Hi Artist,

These are good questions..

- Any photographer who wants to generate extra income with their work.
- We are trying different techniques; ads, UGC videos, and affiliates to name a few. We just launched, and are now exploring the possibilities.

Happy to answer any other questions you may have! Feel free to reach out by email if you want: [email protected]

Regards, Cees

I had no idea I would learn so much about other things on this forum, thanks for sharing!

I think your project can work for sure, but like others said before, you need to bring something new to the table, otherwise why would someone use your platform instead of the existing well established ones that probably work better than yours at least for now.
The easiest way for you to gain customers is by being free in the beginning, thats how i would do it, until my platform is established, and has an amazing user expierince. Good luck to you with your project  ;)

Hi stockart,

Thank you for your positive response and feedback. We offer the platform for free, you can annotate and upload 50 images a month just to try it out.

The added value is the combination of all the features, so you do not need multiple platforms. We also believe it works better already ;)

Feel free to try it out! I can offer you a free account in exchange for more feedback if you want. Just let me know.

Have a great day.

Cheers, Cees

With customers I meant the buyers.
Its a very competitive market and how will you bring the buyers in?

Other companies are already giving stuff at either very low price or free to attract buyers.

I do understand that, but if i want to upload a portfolio of 30K videos, 50 free clips want make a big difference right. But i welcome your idea anyway, we need more competition in that market so prices will come down.

Is it possible to submit videos to freepik as well, or only pictures?
