Microstock is an online RPG game? (not too serious)
Again and again I am asking myself why I am kind of addictive to microstocks. My earnings are low, the whole think did not meat my initial expectations, some guru’s keep screaming about lowering earnings and are not advising to start microstock business… . And yet many, many start and find it.. fan.
So I thought, what do I still like here? And I came up with thought that it is so much a game! I wait on approvals, watch views, excited about downloads, I work on some skills and get them stronger, search where I could get those credits, read advises, hear more experience participants. If you have ever played any online RPG game it will definitely remind you something.
Ok, I know some people earn enough to make living from it. But wait, so do some gamers! Once I earned $100 real backs in RPG game, BTW I made there my first 50 in six month. … well microstock is the other game, were your earnings could be much higher.
Well, it is still a joke! But if you go further you can count agencies as different RPG cities or grounds. And know what? DT is my favourite for its… GAME-PLAY (I know what I am talking about, not only played, but also worked in game industry as software engineer, Su-27 Flanker if you wish). One agency accepts almost all my photos almost instantly. Another rejects photos without any particular reason (or some nonsense). Some looks dead, and on others newbies are ignored or ridiculed by. All they have bad game-play. DT is another story!
Ok, it is still a joke ))) (although at some extent I would make use of it)
BTW, recent portfolio review is just a great example of making it attractive to contributers or take it as ‘improved game-play’!
