GlobalEye’s Authority Network

GlobalEye’s Authority Network

As mentioned previously, we’ve been busy rebuilding our own network of ‘Authority’ sites that we use in promoting your individual pages and our stock library websites as well. If you check out the VCC offer above, they actually use a similar structure and process, except theirs will be quite generic while ours is focused on ‘photography’ keywords. I know most people aren’t interested in how all this stuff works, only that it does work, so if you want a more…

Why The Photographer-Focus For The Launch

Why The Photographer-Focus For The Launch

A couple of people have asked about the ‘photographer’ content we’re using for the launch, and why we’re not more focused on ‘buyers’? The short answer is, that will come later… For starters we want the search engines, Google in particular, to see a new site with a lot of activity, a lot of social signals and probably most important of all… a site that people spend some serious time on. Photographers will do all that for us. We’ll keep…

GlobalEye Stock Blog & Photo Lab

GlobalEye Stock Blog & Photo Lab

If you've had a look around the new website, you'll have noticed we've added a lot of content to the Photographer's area, in particular The Blog and the training area: the Lab. In recent years we've let ourselves get spread a little bit thin with blogs and resource sites all over the place. A lot of it was automated so it was manageable, and it worked well for us in the search engines, so it was worth the effort. Times…

A New Approach To Photo Requests

A New Approach To Photo Requests

One of the most popular features in our early days were the General Photo Requests we'd send out on behalf of our photo buyers. Sometimes they couldn't find what they were looking for in the library, other times they just didn't have time to look, but either way they'd ask us to do a search on their behalf. Some weeks we'd get a dozen of more of these, and we used to see a lot of great sales for our…

Photo Web Host Is On The Move…

Photo Web Host Is On The Move…

For The WordPress Users… If you've ever felt restricted by other people's themes, Layers is an easy option to create your own unique designs and layouts, without having to learn all the technical stuff behind it. http:/ /www.layerswp.com/ There's quite a few of these WP website builders appearing now, but all the others I've looked at have been quite complicated and expensive. Layers is totally free and from my initial 'play' incredibly intuitive and easy to use. I've made myself…

GlobalEye Photo Project Packs

GlobalEye Photo Project Packs

Starting in the New Year, we're going to begin publishing our own 'Photo Requests' on a regular basis. Instead of waiting for photo buyers to tell us what they want, we'll put these requests out ourselves, 'on spec', so anyone interested can contribute photos to a Project Lightbox. As we create these 'Projects', you'll be invited to submit any relevant images to a lightbox. Then once the lightbox has a reasonable number of images, we'll announce it to our Client…

Project Packs Launch Schedule

Project Packs Launch Schedule

1. Initial Testing – Now! At this stage we've got the back-end pretty much ready to go. Most of the Admin functions are in place and fully tested, and the Members submission/admin pages are ready as well. We've got some very basic pages set up for the front-end, but what we need now is some photos submitted so we can finish that part off. I want to do a bit more testing of the Member sections once there's a lot…

New Photo Research Projects

New Photo Research Projects

We've added the next batch of these on a variety of subjects. Rather than list them here, I'll ask you to take a look and see if you can contribute to any of them. Don't forget the earlier ones while you're at it… some are still waiting for a few more images before they go live, so all contribution will help. I will keep reminding everyone that quality is going to be much more important than quantity with these. Please…

Photo Research Projects

Photo Research Projects

We've had a few delays getting these first pages 'broadcast'… we found a couple more issues that needed work once more Members started submitting images, plus a few bugs that were preventing the search engine bots  from accessing the public pages. Those have all been sorted now, and we're busy setting up the custom publish & promote process now. I'm pretty happy with how that's coming together… and we've discovered a couple of new tools that we'll test out here,…

Photography Crowd-Marketing

Photography Crowd-Marketing

This is a new additional to our Monthly Member Newsletters… you'll notice is the 'social marketing' box at the top right on each new issue… this is a trial at this stage but I think it could be very useful for everyone here. For starters we're going to add a new Photo Research Project each month and ask that everyone give it a share or a like on their preferred social media accounts. We're getting some good social activity on…
