Get your large payouts every month from Shutterstock and Fotolia while slowly building up extra income from the smaller sites.

That's a good attitude.

I lost my hope in SF, at this moment I'm 20 in popularity artist list of the site.
What's make me scary?
My earning of this month are less than 9 dollars...

That's weird.  I'm much lower on the list but am earning something like $30-$50 every month there.  I actually have much more hope for them.  They seem to be heading in the right direction, though slowly.

I am averaging 10-25 dollars a month with them. There does seem to be a bit of growth since about June/July but with so few downloads it's difficult to say.

Still a very low earner, but things seem to improve!

I think maybe that the list is portfolio size? ETA ooops just noticed you can sort it by different things

I continue to upload there but I don't count SF in my monthly budgeting and forecasting since I only make roughly $5 to $10 a month there.  It's the only site I check once a month.  All others I check daily. If IS buys them we might have a WHOREMORA collection going:)

Yes it's very weird...I'm around 45 position in portfolio size...
So what does it mean "popularity"?
Just view for file and not sell for file?

I know I'm reviving an old thread, but I was thinking about this today. After reviewing my numbers over the last year, I'm wondering what SF really brings to the table. For me, It's just low sales volume and a really low RPD. It's kind of how I felt about Crestock when I left there. I just didn't see the point in staying.

My sales volume is very low too, but shows some growth, also very slowly. I am a buyer at SF too.

I see signs of life there.  I've done $25 this month so far... beats a sharp stick in the eye.  It's not in my regular upload rotation... I just do a mass upload once in a while and ask them to add to my port.  Pretty painless.

I think part of my decision to stick with them is the warm place in my heart I still hold for StockXpert.  I remember my early days in ms being very excited by the rise of that site and the reliable earnings I saw there before they were swallowed by the mother ship and digested.  Peter managed to grow StockXpert into something special, and I'm hoping he can apply the same magic to StockFresh... but hold onto it this time!

Still flatlining (just about) for me. Glad it is working for some, but I don't see any point in uploading anything else (I have about 1500 there, I think) if the ones already there don't sell.

I'm looking forward for the public announcement where they'll thank everyone for the hard work, but sadly they must go...  ;D
These guys don't stand a chance.

This is what I was thinking but I sincerely hope it doesn't happen, but survival has to endure growth.  I was also thinking a bit in another direction.  Could Peter have started SF with the intention to make a quick buck hoping he can sell it off to another bigger micro, like IS perhaps, once it has gained some traction?

That's pretty much my story too. Also, I haven't seen much or any capacity for the site to get large or vector sales. I'm mostly seeing subs or small credit sales.

I guess its time for SF to evolve. Or not...

I hope the opportunity is not passing but Im afraid unless they do something about their present search-engine, it could be. Why cant these guys have the same alogarithm as they had at StockXpert? makes no sense.

At the moment it seems that its like first come first served in the search, thats crazy!  they should flaunt the best they have, or else, whats the point.

I've made $3 there in April :P  "Opportunity passing? Ain't no stinking opportunity passing!" Joking of course.  It sure isn't turning out like StockXpert that's for sure.  Reluctantly, I am still going to upload as one of my "bottom of checklist to do's".  It's simply part of the risk of MS....the time you spend uploading and what happens to your images if/when they do shut down.  Still, I am rooting for them, but at 170-0 in the fourth quarter with 5 seconds to go on the 50 yard line, winning seems very unlikely.

I know!  thats because their search-engine is useless. They kind of put a whole lot of irrelevant meterial on first three pages, only because they were the first uploaded,  you know, like thanks for joining us, etc, etc.
Thats not the way to do business.

You wanna do business!  show the best, flaunt the best,  thats it.

It's possible something will happen on Monday, but I have zero sales for April so far. Even (everybody else) is doing better than that :)

Compared to my 50 cents this month - you're doing great.

Because when they go out of business they get to keep your money.  Remember Lucky Oliver?
