Stock Answers® is a consultancy dedicated to sharing the knowledge and experience amassed during over two and a half decades of involvement in the stock picture industry.We work with picture libraries and stock photographers around the country and around the world.Our goal? Simple: Building successful stock picture companies, whether they are producers or distributors of imagery.
Yes, we know: the stock picture marketplace can be pretty intimidating, even for seasoned pros, much less newcomers.
We work with photographers at both ends of the “experience spectrum”: we count some of America’s best-selling stock shooters as clients, but also help photographers with little or no stock experience develop a plan for success…and everything in between. In other words, everybody’s needs are different, but the chances are that no matter where you are in your stock career – rank beginner or seasoned pro - we can help.
We’re patient, realistic and there’s not much you can tell us that we haven’t heard before.
Stock Answers® has already worked with photographers on such issues as:
·How do I get involved in stock? And, what should I be shooting?
·I’m already shooting stock, but my sales aren’t where I want them to be
·Should I work with a stock agency? An online distributor? Sell directly? Or…?
·Which of my images are really good, salable pictures?
·What kind of support do I need?
·Can I sell my pictures in international markets, and how?
So, we’ve got this picture library, and…
Think of us as an objective colleague with no agenda except helping you achieve your goals.Stock Answers® will add a fresh set of eyes to your company, providing a new perspective on what you’ve already accomplished as well as assisting you in creating and implementing the path to an even more lucrative future.
We’ve collaborated with picture libraries on issues that include:
·Company evaluation & assessment (What are we doing right? What are we doing wrong? What’s our company worth?)
·Strategic planning & business plan development
·North American market entry & ongoing support
·Development and implementation of advertising/marketing strategies
·Educational programs for content creators
·Assessment of the commercial potential of corporate & institutional picture collections, as well as development of action plans for maximum profitable development of such collections
We also have extensive background in helping both photographers and picture libraries deal with employment & staffing issues (the hiring process, staff organization, compensation and incentives, etc.).
