You are not talking about a true ring, right? Just a reciprocal link agreement?

This is something we can discuss. I am open for both possibilities. I am not sure if one method is better than the other in terms of search engine optimization.

Any ideas on this -  Is there a way to do mutual trades for advertising on other sites?


What sites could use clipartof for their clients and what sites could clipartof vistors use?

I don't think it is possable? Do other microstock sites allow you to post websites or emails?

I could be wrong.

A little suggestion:
Maybe the site could co-operate/partner with another site that doesn't sell illustrations....like Photocase
Or co-operate/partner with site that sells only illustrations or vectors....


BTW I've been told Jamie knows how to sell and promote the stuff very good...................................................................................................

Photocase sounds good....co-partner not so much.
I know Jamie can promote. Did someone say she couldn't? She is kinda busy uploading images.

Update - photocase ranks to low....any other site?

We have to discuss this with Jamie, obviously. But I think both parties would benefit.

Strange that Photocase ranking is low.....
I have only a few images on line 5 or 6 and the sales are better than most higher ranking agencies were I have over 500 images on line....

As a contributor I'm giving an agency a considerable percentage of every sale I have - as for Clipartof, half of what the image is sold for. Now why would it be MY job to promote the site? That is what I am paying the agency for: Selling my pictures to buyers they find to me.

I would more likely want to build up my own site with my own images and promoting that site to have a 100% commission.

Then do it that way.

I wouldn't know how to promote my site and get customers. I just said I am paying the agency to find me customers for my images. Read: I am willing to pay the agency 50-80% of an image sale if they have customers for my images. I don't know about you, but I am not paying 50% of image sales only for storage. As a contributor, it is not my nor yours job to promote the agency.

It is completely fine if this is your opinion - nobody will force you to do something you don't want.

As you may know I am a contributor to Clipartof.com as are other members on this forum.


This site is pro-artist (The others that offer 25 a download are just a ripoff in my opinion) so I wish to assist them.


I need to help promote them. They are a low budget. hence the Google ads on the site. (I'd rather them have those than take a higher percentage of my sales)

They don't have an affiliation program...yet and they don't promote with Google ads. (Again these options would cut into artists percentages.)

Any Ideas??? How can we promote this site?


Cheers Dennis

direct marketing is a quite efficient tool

That's great, because I would really hate that.

If you feel you are obligated to do this, then good luck with your promoting adventure.

I am often thinking about direct marketing. What is the most efficient way to find and to contact potential customers? I think given the price range of our illustrations on clipartof, the most likely buyers would be graphics designers. Is there an inexpensive way to reach them directly?

Go for it....please. Clipartof is not like the other sites you contribute to. Nobody asked anything from you other than positive advice.
