How long does it take you to find the right picture? Stock photos pile up on your desktop as you search and search. The article is ready, but without an image, what will draw the click or break up the paragraphs of engaging text? You’re lost, and you wonder what you’re paying a monthly subscription fee for. How are you ever going to find the perfect photo?
Skyword is solving this problem by partnering with Bigstock to offer hassle-free images for your posts. A leading provider of high-quality stock images, and a subsidiary of Shutterstock (NYSE: SSTK), Bigstock through Skyword gives you access to 14 million images from Bigstock’s library right there on the Skyword Platform.
Our platform integration makes this partnership particularly exciting. Writers in your program can write the article, then quickly and easily find the perfect photo without ever leaving the platform. Photos are relevant, SEO-optimized, and sized to your specification. Once you approve the article and photo, you hit Publish and the article goes live on your site immediately.
On top of the streamlined work flow, stock photos can increase your article traffic as well. We ran an internal study that analyzed 78,000 pieces of content published through the Skyword Platform, and found that articles that contained at least one image saw an average of 70 percent more views than articles without a photo!
On top of more article traffic, our partnership with Bigstock also alleviates several common challenges of finding or creating your own images. Model releases, photographers, copyright, art direction—the headaches are numerous. By using Bigstock images through Skyword, you don’t have to worry about any of those issues.
