Let Cutcaster help you find flower illustrations and photographs to fill out your garden plan or to let your customers know that it’s time to buy seeds and start their seedlings, and make their dreams reality.

Finding Great Photos for your Blog or Website

In our first article on how to find good, affordable photos for your website or blog, we discussed how Cutcaster was a great image library that could save you money when using images to promote your website or blog.

Now your asking yourself where can you find images or illustrations that will maximize your website or blog’s visual appeal? Ever wonder where the bloggers get images that won’t break the bank? With a huge selection of affordable, high-quality images, Cutcaster is extremely popular with professional and casual bloggers who need great-looking, low-cost photos to engage their readers. You want the peace of mind of knowing that the images you use are free of intellectual property or copyright entanglements, and Cutcaster can give you these safe images quickly and economically. Images start at less than a dollar and you don’t even need to register to buy images from us.

As an added bonus, bloggers who want to join Cutcaster can enroll in our Referral Program, which is free to join and earns bloggers extra cash for referring photo buyers and photographers to Cutcaster. With just a few good referrals, the images and referral links will earn you enough money every month to pay for all your image needs. See how the referral program works here.

Back To School Images and Illustrations

Just a quick headsup that we need more “back to school” type images at Cutcaster. Buyers are looking for these images and illustrations and we are creating Lightbox to add these files to so we can send out to buyers. If you have good “back to school” related content that you haven’t uploaded to Cutcaster, please do so and add into the notes that it is for this request. Thanks in advance.

Marketing and Sales Update

Our new email system is in place and working to spread the word but as always we need your help. If you haven’t been using your referral codes and banners to get extra cash, take a look at how the referral program works and start to invite your co-workers and friends to join us. In addition, you can help spread the word by talking about us on forums, email list-serves, using the “share this” button on your studio page or media details page and adding your studio to the major search engines.

On that note….

We are aggressively expanding our buyers list through a number of channels. I make about 20-30 phone calls a day to introduce Cutcaster and learn about how companies are licensing your content. Like I said before it’s a grueling and long process but I see it paying dividends and sales are improving month over month. I realize that not everyone is making sales at this moment so please stay patient as we grow ;-) The addition of corporate accounts and Cutcaster credits will offer buyers another two ways to purchase content from us that work seamlessly in their licensing workflow. I am really excited about the Corporate accounts for large image buyers. In addition, we have been dropping press releases, sending out email blasts to publishers, advertisers and graphic designers, joined two affiliate networks, created coupons and discount codes for buyers to use, optimized our site and blog even more, started buying keywords on major search engines, started advertising in publications that are best for reaching our demographic, going to trade shows for image buyers and doing in office meetings/demos with potential customers.

As always things are happening behind the scenes that would bore you but I hope this sheds light onto what we have been doing to keep ourselves busy and moving successfully forward. If you ever want to talk to me personally my email is john AT cutcaster DOT com or my cell is 215-688-2751. I am free to help at any time ;-)
