Yes, earnings on Shutterstock are total disaster. But last year after changes on Shutterstock I started uploading my new footage to Pond5 exclusive and during last 4 months it started giving me benefits. P5Ex gives more income with much smaller portfolio than SS, average RPD $50, - not like on SS - $9. Yes, number of sales on P5 is lower, but total income is higher. So I continue moving in this direction. Now in this situation I don't see any reason to upload new fresh footage on SS (only upload here some old footage that was already uploaded to other sites).
Maybe If Shutterstock improv
