If there is one thing, ONE THING, that will set your website apart from the rest, it is photography.

Well selected, well developed photography can keep your audience engaged, raise the perceived quality of your brand and speak volumes higher than actual content.



Maybe you are lucky enough to have a friend, or a partner who happens to have great photography skills. Maybe you are pretty handy, yourself with an iphone, but if neither of these happen to be true – we have some great tools to recommend (spoiler alert: They’re FREE).

screen-shot-2016-09-13-at-2-46-09-pmIt used to be that you could create an account and receive a full free month of bigstock photos. Those were the good old days. HOWEVER, you can still take advantage of their two options for free media.

Create an account and receive 5 free videos per day for one week. OR – sign up for 10 free videos each day for that week. Just be sure to cancel your subscription prior to renewal, if you don’t want to get hit with that $79/$99 charge.




A new player on the free stock photo scene is PikWizard. They have over 100,000 free images with a good variety of images of people, which can come in really handy in your business marketing. Over 20,000 of those images are exclusive to this site, so that is over 20,000 brand new images that aren’t overexposed online.

Take a look and let us know what you think!
