I thought it would be a good idea to review some of the different services I use. This review is for Crestock, a microstock agency.
A microstock agency is basically a stock art site that lets artists post their artwork on the site and sell royalty free licenses. Artists retain all the rights to their work and collect a percentage of the royalties when their artwork sells on the site.
Crestock was a late entry for me in the microstock game. I was excited about it at first because I received a few downloads immediately, but that didn’t last very long. Crestock rarely cracks 1% of my monthly earnings if it earns anything at all.
Overall, Crestock seems to be be a fairly nice site, but I just don’t think it gets enough traffic to really earn anything worth while. The site may have potential in the future, but I wouldn’t recommend joining Crestock at this time.
