I find the whole ebook as nothing but a marketing ploy to sell future ebooks.

And after getting my first spam from this site this morning I am sure of this fact

Yes, I just got my first spam email from Clickbank as well as a result of looking at the book - which is massively overoptimistic in what most people can achieve, in my humble view.

PS - being open and honest, I'm also the author of a book about "getting started in stock", so please disregard my somewhat negative comment if you would like.

In the UK, isn't it illegal to harvest email address for future marketing purposes without asking people to opt-in?  There's no ticky-box that says I agree to receive emails in the future, or even a notification to say that's why I'm handing over an email address.

The site looks like the millions of other get rich quick scheme sites.  I think you should scrap it and make something that looks more professional that will make people think about paying you for professional advice.  But I do wonder why you have the need to do this at all?  Have earnings become that bad with istock?  Isn't it more fun to produce your own images than tell other people how to do it so that they can become your competitors and take away some of your earnings?

Perhaps you think that the get rich quick website will attract the kind of person that will part with their money but will soon realise its not easy to make good money and will give up?  That might make sense.

Just red your eBook. It's easy to read and there are some ideas there that can be useful for someone starting out in the microstock industry. There are some typos and not so good phrasing here and there that can be easily fixed but what I think can really be improved is the design of the eBook itself. You have a great portfolio. Why don't you use some of your images to give some examples of what you are trying to say and to make the ebook more appealing?

I can't find a reply to my first post. Did you make a million dollars from stock in 3 years or is that a marketing ploy?

sure he have, 280k downloads are easily 1 M for an exclusive, honestly I don't see the point of creating this website, the ebooks or other, aren't you a very successful photographer, why don't you continue that?

Hi guys

Many thanks for the replies

@ruigsantos - thanks. I did consider whether to add in images, but deliberately just put a link to my portfolio rather than use images, so people would go and look. I hear you though, It may be stronger with images in there.

@goober - yes, no BS. If I didn't I would not feel like I had anything new to offer in an ebook/training

@luissantos84 - The simple answer is that if I can help other photographers that Im more than willing to share via training. Ive got the kind of mind that needs to do lots of things :-)

@luissantos84 - If you do everything in that ebook (and also learn my compositing techniques :-) ), you could have the SAME income

I believe the constant cut in royalties are enough to shrink our income, no need to train more mates ;D

IMHO getting how-to-succed-in-microstock advice from an iS exclusive is like requesting cruise ship recommendations from a passenger on the Titanic.  ::)

Thanks! Good to know this. I hear what you are saying, and believe it or not, was the opposite of what I intended! I wanted to it motivate people and get them interested but definitely make it sound like it's a make $million in 2 minutes with no effort.

Apologies on the spam - that was me pressing the wrong button by mistake. It wasn't even a formatted email!!

Thanks a lot for these comments, Im going to have a redesign/rethink....as someone said once...Ill be back!

To tell you the truth I would have felt better if you would have participated in other conversations before trying to sell us your services.

I remember a few years ago coming across a youtube channel where some guy was promoting making a living via istock. His first piece of advice was to look at what images have sold best and copy them. I don't  even think he was a contributor but he was telling others to sign up and copy other artists. He also speculated on what the top photographers were making all so that he could have a youtube video with high traffic.

Well, I hope you invested a good part of that mill. I wish I had put all I got into property instead of taking timeoff and living like a rockstar.
