Re: The Local Photo

Just one thing Steve,

I notice Blackpool is in there with all the counties - are you going to add a separate sub-category for towns?

For myelf I'm thinking of Preston, Leeds, Lytham St Annes, Manchester etc, or is it just a matter of tagging the photos correctly?

Janet

Thanks John, most of my marketing ideas are all web based, first thing is to get the site ranked well, while im doing that I'll be using google ads and banner ads on other sites and forums, so yes I'd love to know more about the banner ads please.

I will also be doing some old school marketing and physcially calling News and media stations, I tested the water and called a few before I started and a lot said they use istockphoto, but found it expensive or just couldnt find a local enough photo, so thats when I thought there is a gap in the market.

ah yes I have now moved blackpool under Lancashire, in the future I will break the counties down further as a sub category as you have described above, but for now, if you can tag the photos with relevant names then can be found by searching

Re: The Local Photo

Steve, I wonder if you could do something for we who are new to photostock stuff : have a look and see if I (we) have uploaded to the right parts, and if my (our) photos are the right stuff ... let us know?
I've uploaded three very different pictures, didn't take long. (2meg is nicely small to start with )
Do you feel photos should be heavily leaning towards illustrating the area, or would more abstract or tighter pics be just as valid?

(It still doesn't look like a pointing hand ... aaarg. )

Re: The Local Photo

One for all and all for (one . . . scratch that) a tenner!

Simple and good idea, well worth exploring the potential and let's see what we can do. I'm happy enough to create a link from my websites and I'm sure others will as well, so any logos banners etc., are well worth creating for distribution.

Best of luck with the idea

Regards

Hi Ulfric, thanks for signing up and submitting, yes everything seams to be in order, if you are new to stock photography then you have done very well, with detailed titles and keywords well done.

Its totally open for the type of photo at the moment, of course as the site fills up we will need to tailor the needs of the photos down in the future.

Hi Catkins, I was trying to find your site on here, as I wanted to contact you to make sure you was ok with me posting about this, sorry I couldnt remember you name , I hope I havent offended in anyway with this idea, but I thought our sites would be different enough.

If you wouldnt mind creating a link from your site for me I would most appreciate it and do the same in return

Thank you

Re: The Local Photo

Steve,

Is there any way of putting the list of counties/towns in alphabetical order?

I must say that I think it's a great idea, and I've been busy uploading a few...pleased to say that none have been rejected yet! It all seems very simple and easy to use.

Nice one! I wonder who'll make the first sale from it?

Janet

Thanks Janet thats good to hear, I'll have to look at the list as I agree it would be better in Alpha

I'll let you know on the first Sale, as with all stock sites the quantity you upload will help your chance of sales
