Great app but Could be a little better
I have made a very good amount of money with this app! So good I shouldn't be complaining! But my compliant isn't just for myself but for others who might become or have become weary of using this app! First and foremost it really only makes money if stringr has clients in your area, who order events! I really love the work, it's fun I meet new and great people when I go to an event! I love to film and interview people! I'm a people person which may be why the only issue I have with stringr is their communication needs a lot of work. They are a new company so I give them that grace, but it doesn't seem to be getting better! The text thing really is not that efficient, takes along time for someone to respond to your text! Even emails! They do not always pay to next weekday business day so you have to remind them! Besides that it's Great the only reason I didn't give them a Five Star is because of the communication! Not sure how they can fix that maybe they can maybe they can't! For me it's just if you like it which I do you have to put up with that part! Film on brothers and sisters!
Thanks stringr for the work!
Great app- no payment - no support
My account was fixed - mix up in email address and was promptly paid! Legit, fun and well worth doing! Will continue to use this service- highly recommend! It took me a few days to get response but I'm sure they are busy. A time frame is helpful in response time. Just make sure you have properly spelled PayPal email when registering!
So, I love the app concept. You get notifications of things going on in your vicinity to get get footage of. You can upload anything you see also. The locations on map are not accurate. It's easy to upload. Unfortunately I got an email that someone purchased and DL my video shot. Woohoo $40 on first try! But I haven't been paid. I didn't realize you needed Connected PayPal account for email. I fixed it after reaching out- and still no payment. Days of emailing support and no response whatsoever! I reached out via app, email and Facebook. Stringr has yet to respond. Still no money, and you NEED PAYPAL. Will update when I get paid.
Concept is good BUT...
I did a few small jobs and got paid each time. No complaints. However, I've refrained from using the app to sell big breaking news, such as tornadoes, because Stringr won't tell me what they are selling the footage for or what percentage I'm getting from the sale. Now, $45-$65 for a wreck, festival, ribbon cutting, or art exhibit broll is fine. HOWEVER, I know good weather or tornado video can sell for anywhere from $500-$1500 per hit and I want to make sure they aren't selling it for that and only paying me $65. I sell stock footage on a website and they are up front that I get 50% of any sale and they keep the other 50%. Also, Stringr doesn't have an open website where any media outlet can go online and buy video at any moment. Media outlets have to enter into agreements with them to access their library. In my market, stations have refused to agree to that so Stringr is limiting their reach. I'm guessing they don't want an open platform because they don't want the stringers knowing how much they are getting for the footage.
