How Can You Find Photos that Fit your Business for Pennies on the Dollar?
Service-based businesses need photos, too.
hile they may not have any physical products to sell, service providers like designers, marketers, and branders, still use images for their websites, social media, and blogs.
And even if these business owners have gone through the work of getting their own brand imagery, they may worry about having enough material for their amount of online activity. This is where good stock photography can let you stretch your image material for longer amounts of time, spend less than you would on additional custom brand images, and still have eye-catching photos to display online. And I’ve got an easy, pennies-on-the-dollar way to get beautiful stock photography, including some shot by yours truly.
Let me first give you the backstory, though. About 3 years ago, I opened a stock photography shop for a short time. This was actually when I got both feet in the water of styled photography in general and flatlays in specific, which are areas of photography that I love and now am known for. But while I really enjoyed the photography for the shop, I quickly learned that it takes A LOT of effort to run a stock shop! I realized that the shop was, in fact, more than I could take on with the healthy client-based side of my business, too. So I backed off of the shop and decided that I would focus on styling for my clients and doing workshops. That’s when I started my Flatlay Method workshop, which eventually became my Flatlay Method Ecourse. And while I’m happy my chosen photography paths, there has still been a part of me hoping something would work out down the road with my stock shop ideas.
Enter Kayla, from Ivory Mix Stock Photography. I didn’t think I would ever partner with someone in my business, but when I met Kayla this past summer, we hit it off right away. My desire to shoot stock photography and Kayla’s expertise in distributing these types of images were a match made in heaven. It was a perfect opportunity for me to create stock photos for all different types of businesses and then have someone get them into the hands of the right people. So Kayla and I joined together, and now I am a contributing photographer for her stock shop on a monthly basis. You can snag stock images in my traditional style at the INCREDIBLY affordable membership cost of $149 a year. And the membership is jam-packed with so many things beyond the photos, like courses, captions, and quote templates. Ivory Mix really is an economical, one-stop shop for photography and related items that a service provider can tailor for their own use and then mix with their custom brand photos to substantially increase their image material.
So there you have it. All of you service providers can now pitch the old mindset of not having enough images to keep up, because that’s not the problem, friends. There are so many excellent and inexpensive stock resources out there, and I’m pleased to be able to offer you mine at Ivory Mix.
And if you head over to Ivory Mix to check things out, I’d love to know what you think! You can always drop a comment below, tag me on social media, or send me a quick email. If there’s something that seems to be missing, I want to know so I can better help service-based business owners be on their game. And if you’re using Ivory Mix Stock photos, Kayla and I would be delighted to see what creative things you’re doing!
