Ingimage - Accepting New Contributors / A Few Changes

(1/9) > >>

Hi - I'm Henry, the Marketing Manager at Ingimage.

We've made a few changes to our library that I wanted to share with you. I'm also pleased to announce we are now accepting new contributor applications:

Changes to the website:

1. We now offer an Extended License option - a single image cost $80 or $40 if the customer has an active subscription with us. Your royalties will be the regular 20% ($16 / $8).

3. We have launched a new search engine. This will introduce a new default sorting system under Relevance - this gives more weight to newer images & images that have downloads related to the searched-for keyword (the Editor's View option will also be kept).

3. Royalties can now be viewed and requested automatically through your account (...I appreciate we are very much late on this development, but we're doing our best to catch up). Go to My Account > Contributor Area > Royalties.

New Content:

Ingimage is now accepting applications for new contributors - Deadline of April 30th.

1. New video contributors (applications can be sent directly to [email protected] [nofollow])

2. New photographers & illustrators, particularly with portfolios covering the following categories:

- Authentic-looking People (ie. not too model-ly, with a range of genuine emotions)
- Education (all ages)
- Content created in Asia, South America & Africa
- Workplaces / Professions - eg. care workers, tradesman, designers
- Sports

Hi Henry, why do you think taking 80% is fair? What do you do to earn that 80% cut of our work?


Your prices are too low (subscription: 250 images per week, 139 for one month, 789 for 12 month).
Extended licenses are too cheap also.
You are undercutting the competition, that's not what I will support.

And most certainly not if you offer an insulting 20%.

Sorry, that's a complete non-starter for me.

Are you serious?  ???  I won't even read the rest "great news"...

In first moment I thought we are talking about, lol... Who was first?

Hi Semmick and dirkr,

The honest answer is that the royalty % is calculated on what allows us to grow our business and support our team.

We have a traditional sales team & customer service led approach which has high running costs. Each of our subscribers has a personal account manager that they can call & and who will give them updates throughout the course of their subscription. I am aware this sounds old-fashioned, but there is a niche for this - with many customers choosing us specifically because they enjoy the experience of working with a smaller company.

Our subscription pricing reflects the more niche product & smaller collection size.

There are higher subscription royalty rates elsewhere, however, on a big subscription-based site each image is competing against another 20M - 50M, on Ingimage the choice is smaller - as a result each contributor ultimately receives a much greater share of our revenue.
