--- Quote from: Ariene on March 20, 2015, 03:11 ---Hatman, if the newcomer can afford 80% and marketing at the same time, why do you care? I hope you're just joking with lowering %... First people here say 50% is the minimum and they are jumping into platforms offering 70-80% (easiest example is 500px which makes sales and pays 70% and that is from big amount! And it works) and now you say you don't want to earn that much because you don't trust the agency... I don't get it  :P
One more time, if SIM can afford that, if they are prepared (I believe they are, they made calculations and searched the market before plans realisation), just be happy and support them. We are coming to new market area...
You're right it's to early to say anything here in that case, maybe after 2-4 years will be able to be 100% sure if it works or not. And after that period SIM will see if they can stay with 20%.
One more thing we need to ascertain - if SIM is just a platform where we do our own marketing (like Focal Pool etc) or it is another agency doing whole marketing for us... Sorry if I missed that info somewhere :)

Thank you for your trust Ariene, we are doing what we want and we could to make the maket more sustainable and healthy.

We promot contributors manage images by themselvies (like you could sell products on ebay now ), on SIM, you could see who purchases your image and the enduser of your images, that a knid of electronic commerce in the indrstry. But of course, we will aslo do what we could to help all contributors doing marketing and business here.

Thank you again Ariene. :)

Again with the self promotion. Marketing needs to come from the agencies, and it needs to be aggressive. You cant rely on the contributors to do the marketing. Hatman is absolutely correct, 80% of a few sales is not going to entice contributors. Not enough content is not going to attract buyers. No marketing and no one will know about its existence. Aggressive marketing and 50% has a lot more potential overall.

Thank you for your kindly advise, we will keep in mind about the aggressive marketing. But just like you said, not enough content is not going to attract buyers, that's why we come here to invite the excellent photographers as you. We would appreciate if you could join us.
About the 50%, we prefer give 80% to contributors, and of course, we will also do aggressive marketing, we need your supports and trust.

Thank you again for your advise.

Aggressive marketing doesn't come cheap. Do you have the financial back up to do it?

Mantis:
The thing is, you keep saying things like "we'll keep in mind" or "we'll think about changing our wording". Let's take the infringement issue discussed in this thread. SIM seems to think that all they need to do is change the wording of a clause and all will be well. What is SIM going to do to go after infringers? How far is SIM willing to go to protect contributor assets? I am hearing "not very far".
