  1. Just published: content ideas for Halloween that you should not pursue: https://stockphotosideas.com/blog/halloween-photo-ideas/ You may be surprised why are we talking about Halloween in summer, but Stock Photo Ideas sends newsletter 2 months in advance and this is exactly the time to prepare for October content.
  2. Just finished preparing August newsletter. This time have 2 more high-level topics than usual, making August a month with record number of ideas. It's a great time to sign up and create needed content for October! https://stockphotosideas.com/
  3. I've probably missed these discussions. What were they denied to say about?
  4. Hi all I was collecting new data for Stock Photo Ideas after the feedback on top-100 customer queries by traffic. I took top-500 customer queries by traffic instead of top-100 this time and analyzed portfolios that were on the first pages of Shutterstock search for these queries. These are only queries for photo and video. The results are published on Petapixel: https://petapixel.com/2021/07/23/how-to-rank-on-the-first-page-of-top-queries-on-stock-photo-sites/ Believe it or not, I found out that about 30% of portfolios that rank at least once on the first page have 1000 or less photos
  5. New blogpost: analysing first 100 queries in Shutterstock https://stockphotosideas.com/blog/top-100-queries-shutterstock/ Who knew there are 13 great content opportunities!
  6. We will be sending the first newsletter in 5 days! It is a good time to sign up now to receive it!
  7. Check out new blogpost: what content you should have NOT been creating for the Memorial Day: https://stockphotosideas.com/blog/memorial-day-content/ I have bad news for you in case you were working on flags for Memorial day, as well as stars and statues.
  8. Next time that happens please contact support from within the app so it will send correct logs automatically. This way it will be possible to diagnose the problem.

  11. Hey folks I'm happy to present you a new service: Stock Photo Ideas. The main purpose is to provide contributors with very detailed analysis of relevant content, existing competition and customers demand 2 months in advance before the topic will be relevant. You will get lots of subniches analyzed e.g. for such a saturated topic as Memorial day you will find that there is "memorial day cartoon" that is being searched by lots of customers and has only 4,800 existing works (in comparison to 403,000 of existing works for "memorial day" itself) or that there's still room in COVID-19 subt
  12. New in Xpiks blog: Review of Shutterstock Custom We look into other ways to earn with Shutterstock and discuss pros and cons
  13. Hi everybody I'm excited to preset an app that streamlines keywording and uploading for microstock contributor. It's named Xpiks (Cross-platform Image Keywoarding Software). It was written from scratch with aim to make it more useful, convenient and quicker than existing tools. App is available for OS X, Windows and Linux x64. Main features: convenient keywording capabilities (XMP/IPTC metadata) uploading images to Stock Agencies' FTP hosts (keeping encrypted list of credentials) keywords suggestion based on Shutterstock API or on the local library search
