Time is precious, especially in the world of photography. Wherever you go you’re always told to create more, network more, engage more…
Having chosen a 24/7 career it can be hard to juggle your everyday schedule. But we assume you’re human too? You still need time to cool down, surround yourself with friends and family and escape on an adventure now and again.
That’s usually when you discover the big elephant in the room. All the images you’ve spent so many hours on already need keywording…
We all know it, poor keywording means less revenue. When a customer is looking for images to buy it starts with words. These words will be the first and most important step for your images to be seen and stand out from the crowd. To make life easier for all the stressed photographers out there we’ve put together a list of our top 5 recommended keywording companies.
So whilst you’re cruising around the Croatian islands these specialists can accumulate thousands of keywords to describe your content and make sure that your images are optimised for Alamy’s search engine.
