Hello guys how are you / happy new year

I failed to get my first E-Marketer
---
How to marketing your portfolios ?
And how to getting a buyers ?

Thank you and sorry for my English

But also let me to admit that I was reckless in dealing with someone I did not know
Thanks for all Happy New Year
                  I am sorry for my English

I 100% don't buy that we are getting anything like the real story. Without links to his work elsewhere we have no idea who this is and what actually happened.

We never do on these account closed for no reason crys. The opposite, the person goes away and we don't hear the answer or the account gets restored because it was a mistake. I didn't know is not a defense. Somehow someone paid for all these on demand downloads, how can that happen for a small fee? There's more here than we'll ever know.

I think the possibility of cheating is unlikely
Because no one can do that with microstock sites
Because you simply think that if you cheat you will pay much more than you will earn

I do not see the right with shuttersttock ever, in the end they are taken for each download and must pay the royalties

I do not see the right with SS to close my account too, they must to protect the sellers and preserve them instead of genocide, so the sellers are decreasing and thus their site will fail and their reputation in the direction of the bottom

This is really what I think if you are asked me for honesty

Well it might be, maybe somehow they detected something fishy going on with your mac adresses and it raised a red flag for them, so they just disabled the account. I doubt they even elaborated, they just play safe and don't have time to investigate every such event, hence the paragraph in their tos about account disabling with no questions asked. I think...

As far as I know mac addresses aren't communicated unless there is an app installed on the client mac. Do mac users have to download an app from SS to communicate with the site? If it's just through browser, unless it's IE supposedly there isn't anything providing SS with this info.

You are right. I thought it's not usually done but possible to extract mac if wanted.

Is it important?
Is this possibly the reason for my account being disabled?

I'm not suggesting that them extracting the mac address has anything to do with that but, why would you change it? I'm suggesting that if you're going through the trouble to change that, you're probably going through the trouble to use a proxy server or any other number of confusing questionable actions as well.

As for what you should do in the future, just create new profiles at other sites (shutterstock will close it again if they find out it's you) and share your stuff the way the rest of us do. It's really that easy ... No "marketer" is just going to show up one day and increase sales 1000% but, if you just share your new files and new sales and whatever sometimes you'll catch an extra customer or two from your followers. It seems like most of them have a way to pretty much share them automatically ... if not try IFTTT or something.

Good luck, don't cheat the system too badly.

Eventually the my pen's tooth has broken
But do not worry about that, that will not push me to suicide or join to ISIS

Ok all

The question remains, what is the hidden thing that a marketer could do to increase profits?
Look in the past before I see you and also before my account has been disabled
I never suspected that something was wrong, because I do not know how to manage this thing called marketing

But I asked him how would increase earnings , He say will share my portfolio link in social media and advertising and that by virtue of his profession he is close to personally approaching buyers and that I am not the first nor the last to work with him, he increases the profits of many people and it always goes well

When I saw sales increase, I did not really think about anything. It seems, according to your analysis, that I was hunting easy

But if all he takes is a little price, it seems he looks like a hard-working employee
I think maybe he can steal me or hacking my bank accounts later

I really do not know, is it possible that all this is just a misunderstanding?
And my profits were just the lucky beginner, But it seems that I am not lucky enough.

Thank you

When you start your own business it is like your son,
Please promise your future children (daughters also matter) that you will not under any circumstances allow them to be looked after by some random stranger who approaches you in person or online and offers to look after them.

You put your hand on the wound
I have behaved really reckless behavior, I hope this is the end of trouble

Unless I'm missing something, I'm not getting the impression that this guy was in on the scam. He just seems to be very naive. I mean the following statement proves that...

"When you start your own business it is like your son, raise it on your hands and see it grow up in front of your eyes, you should think like all people to get an e-marketer. The future is going to them?"

I think I'll pass on that one, based on the results! Or if I did get one... I'll seek out a marketer myself, qualify them, check case studies, testimonials, check those testimonials are real by real people and real companies, check the address isn't some virtual mailbox or a shed in the middle of nowhere etc etc. I'm not going to accept the services of somebody who comes out of the blue.

It's the same reason I don't have cupboards full of penis pumps and Viagra... I don't accept every offer that comes into my mailbox. If you're not from an officially recognised guild of penis pump craftsmen, you're not getting my business.

I am really a beginner in this way
It seems that I was nave because I did not read the instruction manual, as wisdom says

We know that no one learns free of this life. maybe what I hear now and what happened to me is the price of learning a lesson to become an adult.

I'm sorry for everyone, but please consider my feelings

Thank you all I have really benefited from this long debate

I'm sad to what I hear, are being easily charged to people?
Why do you think you are a detective? Why do you trust your uncertain analysis?
At first I did not expect the marketer to have anything to do with this, so I only talked about the important things.

When you start your own business it is like your son, raise it on your hands and see it grow up in front of your eyes, you should think like all people to get an e-marketer. The future is going to them? I was did not see marketers as fraudsters.
When he told me he can market my portfolio, I have feel happy and I was think it good thing

What are my guilt here, I have a marketer to market my portfolio?

Regardless of whether the marketer is accused or not, this too has not been proved, and my images was continuing in sales in 3th years did not stop and this shows the admiration of people.

I feel that you are shutterstock lawyer, you do not want to hear and just decompose and then draw accusations on uncertain analyzes.

Let me tell you that you have do like a shutterstock, for you accused The defendant is convicted until proven innocent. Oh really ?

Thank you and sorry for my English

I lost my portfolio and lost Shutterstock buyers forever, and I do not know if there are any other hidden risks!

SS approved my personal data, passport photo and tax form
How can I be suspicious if I am honest?

All that the marketer got from me was the link to my portfolio then did something I do not know
ِAnd here are people who think about me a fishy
So how to publish any links in the Public ?

11
I still do not understand, and my mind does not want to believe that, I did nothing and then lost everything ?

What if that was what the criminal want from the start? Maybe closing my account is a goal, to eliminate on me or revenge for someone else?

Maybe all you think is just suspicion
Maybe SS think this too
Maybe SS have worried about the volatility of overnight profit

The support of SS does not respond to me, it seems that my e-mail in spam folder for them now.

12
He showed me some downloads on the first day. he show me he is serious, I do not have marketing experience but I am impressed

What makes me refuse? Maybe life is not complicated just for those who understand it and he provides support for me, why should I refuse?

He did not ask for passwords and did not give me any links to click on it and did not ask for personal data
It seems like no risk? If you were my place would you refuse?

13
In fact I do not know this marketer and did not find he
Actually he is who found me

You have to imagine, someone sends you a message on Facebook and tells you that he can change the situation
The earnings will multiply and he's seems sure, Wow great deal is not it  when the price is too little?
He says to me he has a great skill in marketing

And now I am in a state of confusion, so I do not exaggerate when I ask myself who I should believe, and who I should lie?

Was he is a quorum? Was he a criminal? Or is there only a misunderstanding? What is going on in this life?

14
What we derive from this great debate
Do not believe for electronic marketers
Do not earn more money than usual or close your account :) ?
 ???

15
Well there you go, you get $100 for 3 years, you pay some e-marketer, you get $700 in one month, I doubt that e-marketer is that good.
Were those $700 like 2800 subs or some fancy licenses?


I did not understand well what you meant
But it was $ 700 the on demand and enhanced downloads

Perhaps this person was evil, in all cases I think the issue was necessary to discuss it or even a warning not to repeat it, not kick me


Was your e-marketer using stolen credit cards or fake accounts?

Maybe
But he told me that he just shared links in some way adsense, ads, groups and pages such things drew people's attention to my images, just

16
Something else @leremy
I understand well, the portfolio and money never return again

I'm just looking for a bug so I can learn the lesson and do not make the mistake twice

Let me Thank you and sorry for my English forgive me :)

17
U know what... whenever some dishonest guys got his account banned, the first thing they worried about is that they are unable to withdraw their remaining money. They don't care about their portfolio.

Let me tell you this. All serious and honest artists put pride in their portfolio and that's their number 1 priority. They wouldn't worry too much about what's left unpaid.

Yes, you are right
The first goal reason I joined in SS is to earn some money I am doing a worker in return for that
I care about two things people love my portfolio and also collect more and more money, the art equal money its not free
But let us say that the winds do not come as the ships need, as wisdom says

And I thank the god because I am still patient until I create more creativity in order to earn money from another place
We artists are human, we not live just for brag :)

From $3 a month, to $700 a month... is going to raise some eyebrows.

Yes, but this is not the property of banks  ;D
It's still a small thing

What would I do? Write a public message Hello! do not pay more than 3 USD Please?

I used several operating systems on my Computer, Linux and two Windows
In Linux, I used the spoofing mac address But not In windows
Does this have anything with my Issue

As far as I know this shouldn't be a problem. SS shouldn't see your mac address anyway, only the IP. Unless there is something else going on. Does anyone else have access to your account?

Lots of possibilities on the scene  :-\
No one has the password, but what if my account is hacked and I do not know
If SS just gave me some details! Gosh  >:(

21
Well it might be, maybe somehow they detected something fishy going on with your mac adresses and it raised a red flag for them, so they just disabled the account. I doubt they even elaborated, they just play safe and don't have time to investigate every such event, hence the paragraph in their tos about account disabling with no questions asked. I think...

They can not even know that I changed it
Even if they read my Mac address, it's like I've accessed their site from another computer

And another view that says maybe your suggestion is true, maybe

... So, I've got a question ... Why the Mac spoofing and everything? Something seems fishy here, I'm not sure we're getting the full story.

It's just a traditional way to use a PC, is this important?
Spoof Mac address its like used several devices together, and I think SS can't read my mac address, it is a privacy

This is the full story
But as proverbs say, I'm still looking at my old book to understand what's going on
I mean, this has nothing to do with the story
But I am distracted. I do not know where I should start and what to look for

And If you have a question ask me :)
Thank you very much

How long did you have an account to get up to $800 in sales?

Yes that's what happened, I got  $100 in three years and $ 700 in one month, this seems to be the problem
But I think it is not the great number that it makes them feel worried about me

25
Mohamad, if you are using e-marketer services and he is so successful at selling your images, why don't you do all the sales from your own website? I mean, why would you want to give more than half of your money to an agency? If you made $800 over SS, then you could make almost $2000 playing solo.
