I can't find any requests right now...anywhere in the world...how come?
How do I expand my area of availability? I live in a rural place but am very close to urban areas and I’d like the app to notify me of possible shoots in these areas.
It’s a scam right?
Hey Stringr! I’m having a blast using your app and making me some money in the process! Thank you so much!!!! ❤️😁
Can I make money doing this?
I have had two incidents that occurred with stringr recently, that I need others to be aware of. My first occurrence happened last week when I got a "TEXT" on my phone to go cover a home fire... I "accepted" the assignment on the app and drove 30 minutes to get the footage... when I arrived I checked in via text and was told they already had it. Really? Why did you bother me to go get something when you already had asked someone else? Note to self: waste of time, waste of gas, feeling used. Then this week, I accepted an assignment to get footage on a school bus crash and got some great close-up video. Then I am told they are "promoting" it. Really? You sent me out to take a video that no one had asked for, and then you were going to "shop". Note to self: Waste of time, waste of gas, felling used. I don't understand how this company can waste people's time and money on their own dime. I strongly warn others before they go for the footage too.
My name is Len Clark and I am a journalist and journalism educator. I have been a stringer for Stringr on a few occasions and never had an issue until today. Each assignment I accepted, I was paid promptly. Last week, I received an assignment which was an hour away. I accepted - showed up an hour early - attended the event for two hours - drove back another hour and spent another two hours editing and uploading. I found it odd that I was not paid. I contacted Stringr and they informed me that not all assignments are guaranteed to be paid. Then why would they send me on an assignment to cover a non paying gig? I could contact my own sources and sell for much more money if I was inclined. I will no longer accept any Stringr assignments and I will inform my students and colleagues of the practices of Stringr. It was my fault for not thoroughly investigating the policies and practices of Stringr. I will not waste anymore of my time with them.
How Come Alerts don't seem to go out in The Seattle Washington Area? there have been Several News Worthy Events that have happened in the Seattle Area that I've Found out after they have happened.
WHOO-HOO my first PAID job!
Today, I had my first gig in Stringr.! Thank you so much! I will strive to get better each time. Greetings and Blessings. Thank you, Lee!
Wondering how does a stringr know when their video is used? I’ve accepted request and uploaded some great content. But I have no clue if it was ever purchased?
First time I used the app and submitted a video for a request. Then saw car accident that turned into fights with each accident victim. They also tried to assault the police. I hope all goes well. I JUST found this app yesterday!! Will the app update if I am traveling?
