“You Get What You Pay For When It Comes to Stock Photos”
Depositphotos was made for people who write quality content and need quality stock photos.
Writing online is not easy. It’s hard work.
When I write a post and publish it online, I spend a lot of time on it. I’m always proud of my final product.
The last thing I want to do after I spend all this time and energy on a post is just throw in some generic stock photo like this one:
I want the best photo.
I want a photo that is unique and matches my writing. This one, for example, really fit with a post I was writing about false advertising:
The only place you’re going to find that is Depositphotos.
$29 for 30 Stock Photos is Worth It
I first came across Depositphotos when they ran an AppSumo promotion:
As I wrote in my AppSumo post, US$39 was a great deal for 100 photos.
But once I started using Depositphotos, I realized that they were top quality and that the US$29/month regular plan for 30 photos is still worth it.
You get to carry over any unused monthly credits so it’s not like you are forced to download all 30 photos in one month.
That works out to around $1 per photo. This might seem expensive, but it depends on how often you publish posts and how many photos you typically use in a post.
It really comes down to how much you think your posts are worth. If you value your writing, you should value the visuals that go along with it.
I’ve tried other stock photo sites and they are mostly underwhelming.
On the other sites you are promised unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of photos but when you look closer you find that there is very little variety and the more specific you get, the more out of luck you become.
You Get What You Pay For When It Comes to Stock Photos
I learned quickly that paying less than $1 doesn’t mean you’re getting a slightly worse photo. It means that you’re getting a bad photo that you don’t even want to use because it’s just filling space.
So if you’re frustrated with your existing options for stock photos, before you give up and use that crappy photo again to fill space, please head over and check out Depositphotos first.
Also sign up with AppSumo and keep your eyes peeled for another deal on 100 photos for $39. You don’t want to miss your chance if it comes around again!
