How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused

How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

I don't know you, but for me, images are very important. A text without an image, is like a sky without stars. For this reason, I like this post with several ressources, maybe you too! [note Martin Gysler]

 

“Hey, I’ve seen that image before. Actually, I’ve seen it many times before.”


Images allow you to express what words can’t.

 

They draw the viewer in and elicit an emotional impact, providing your users with information while confirming that what your selling or promoting is real.

 

There are many affordable options available to purchase stock photography. This may be a blessing or a curse. Affordability often comes at the cost of originality.

 

It’s important to consider your ideals and the image’s ability to illustrate a concept perfectly. But consider originality as well. You wouldn’t want to fall into the trap of using cliche imagery because it’s easy and convenient.

Marty, thanks for the comment.

I just found another great way to search for Creative Commons images: http://search.creativecommons.org/

It automates a CC search on Google Images, Flickr and more. Wow!

Combining Content Curation with Customer Communities

Combining Content Curation with Customer Communities | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

Good piece about how to move your curation efforts forward. There are a lot of posts on this but it's always good to see apparently the same thing presented from different angles as this can help paint the entire picture and perhaps reach some people that other perspectives miss.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"What’s the best way to lure customers to your web site and to your wares and to keep them coming back for more?

 

1) Provide compelling, seductive, timely, and relevant information to your target audience—not sales pitches, but authoritative information from objective third parties and great tips from their peers.

 

2) Make sure that targeted information turns up everywhere your target audience is likely to go—not just on your web site, but also on others’ sites, in the social media conversations they follow, and in the news.

 

3) Supplement your online forums with relevant tidbits of 3rd party information that address your customers’ concerns, pique their interest, and stimulate dialog.

 

It’s tough to grow a vibrant online customer community. It takes a lot of care and feeding and a lot of fresh information to keep your audience engaged."
