Started by former StockXpert founders (a successful microstock site subsequently bought out by Jupiterimage and Getty Images), Stockfresh is an up-and-comer to watch. Although it still ranks pretty low in the scheme of things, Stockfresh is a well designed site run by people who have proved they know how to make a company successful. At the moment Stockfresh still has a relatively small image base, so if you’re a newcomer to microstock now is the time to get your foot in the door.
First things first – if you are thinking of signing up to Stockfresh, do it now. The initial approval process (5 images and a biography on yourself) can take a very long time before you hear back. Get the ball rolling now.
It’s great to see another agency that gives it’s contributors a good commission rate right from the start. Stockfresh also has a very easy to use FTP upload system, with no categories or anything to fill out. Just upload and submit. I’ve found their reviewers to be fair and reasonable.
It would be nice to see them start some marketing soon, as not much at all has happened on that front and it shows with the low sales. Understandably they need to have a decent image base first, but now that they have passed the 1 million image mark a while ago it would seem reasonable to start rewarding all their contributors with some marketing efforts.
