A New Business Model in the Face of Faltering Stock Sales

Jim Martin and I were interviewed by Miki Johnson of livebooks in mid-March on a trip to San Francisco. Livebooks built our website and has become like partners in our business. Miki asked about our new approach to the business of stock photography for their Resolve blog, and I shared our view of the state of the business and our response to the changing environment.

    Hard to hear you with the traffic noise in the background.

    I actually didn’t have any problems at all with the background noise, very easy to hear the conversation. Interesting look into a new business model in transition from the old standard.

    Your attitude is truly admirable – reconsider the business model to do right by your employees and customers. If only every business owner had this kind of ethic.

    I have to agree with Dean about the video quality – poor… understandable that it was “on the fly” but someone should have pointed out your shirt button coming undone… I think you can give the same message much better on your own. Take the video down – redo it – put it back up.

    What a spectacular post! I did a sort of blogging for dummies over on one of the CPA Marketing forums and I considered it was too simple for them, but the sum of emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young people nowadays we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even individuals just a a couple of years older have not! Really good post! 🙂

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

Happy to find that there are blog proprietors that worry about their blogs and not publish all kind of unuseable stuff but rather try to keep it clean and priceless for the interest of their visitors. You’ve done a good job and i thank you for that and also for not shocking me with unuseable garbage and spam.Thank You
