3 Benefits of Using Stock Photos
We’ve boasted about the benefits of using good stock photos in your business for years — and it’s for good reason! We currently work alongside stock photo extraordinaire, Haute Stock, to bring our aesthetically gleaming dreams to life and appreciate that they have a selection just for our fabulous Printed Minters. Because of the effort and time they put into their work, they take a significant amount of it off of our team’s plate.
Love how easy it sounds but not sure if you really need them? We wanted to quickly share why we find it so truly beneficial, and hope it helps you.
1. It Uplevels Your Brand
iPhone photos with a ring light can get you far, that much can be true. But professionally curated stock photos of products in your inventory that are designed by a team of creatives who have been in the photography game for years who know how to yield results? Now that’s what we’re talking about. Want to see what we mean first hand? Check out Haute Stock’s custom Printed Mint photos, here.
2. You Save Later
You save! On both time and space. Staging photos with seasonal products and in different settings can be costly! Before we teamed up with Haute Stock, we’d walk into Michael’s with hands full of pumpkins, fake snow galore and backdrops filling up our trunk. I know you know that song and dance, and if you’re anything like we were, you’re probably tired of it! Not to mention, we had an area of our warehouse (yikes) dedicated to just props. Free up your space and finances by outsourcing your stock photography and start investing in other areas you’d like help, like social media management or a monthly pedicure.
3. It’s More Content
Even with you shooting behind the lens, there simply isn’t enough time in the day to continuously churn out the content you likely wish you had time for. Sure, these photos can showcase your products on your website or Etsy page, but they can also be used throughout social media and in marketing materials.
