If you want great stock photos for your business, you might need to spend a little money, you don’t want to use a stock photo that a lot of other businesses have used. It won’t cost as much as a professional photo shoot so it will be worth the money. Also keep in mind that you aren’t doing this for yourself, you are doing it for your business. You might fall in love with an image, but that doesn’t mean it is the best one.
- The same copyright laws that protect your soapy photos from theft also protect all of those pics that pop up in Google’s image search.
- Keep records of your downloads. If someone tries to hit you up for cash, claiming you stole a photo, you want proof that you did your due diligence. A screenshot of the download page is insurance.
- Smart spending on stock photos will help you stand out from the crowd and save money over trying to DIY.
“Quality, on-brand images are a must. But, believe it or not, they don’t always have to be taken exclusively for your company. Stock photography websites can be great resources to pad your stash of marketing images.”
