Reading Time: 2 minutes
Every morning I drive to work, as a bunch of others do. I drive the same way, leave at the same time, and hope to miss traffic. Sometimes, though, there is that one thing that stands out on my drive, and I have to snap a picture of it. You know what I’m talking about… that dumpster that is painted teal with bright yellow bananas scattered all over it, or the man riding a bike, talking on the phone and eating a slice of pizza. Either picture is definitely share-worthy. But what about those pictures that aren’t organically yours? This is when you can run into a blogging blunder that can get you into trouble.
As I’ve mentioned before, blogging is essential to a business plan. It shares great information, it allows customers and potential customers to get to know you and to understand a little more about what they’re working towards.
- iStockPhoto.com: This site has multiple subscription options that make it easy for anyone’s budget. I use to personally use this one because they have an array of pricing options, and thousands, if not millions, of great high-quality photos. However, I’ve found that their change in price is not favorable to those who purchase photos on a budget.
- GettyImages.com: This site is similar to iStock. They have a subscription option, or you can pay outright. For both of these options, subscriptions are the cheaper route.
- Depositphotos.com: Another great way to get photos. This site lets you purchase photos for a bit better price than the above two. This is the one I’ve changed to from iStockphoto.com.
