group plan: tagging &-or processing services

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Alamy-approved tagging-processing service.

Reason for "group" is to create enough full time volume

that will get price per image down to something like

under ?15? cents per image for full ready-to-sell tagging,

under ?15? cents per image for full ready-to-sell processing; 

contributors can select just one or both services... 

if not under 15 cents per service it may not be

economically feasible for almost all contribs...?

But if price per image is low enough, there could

be HUGE jump in total collection size increase rate?!!!

Especially if one's service balance is subtracted from one's sales net...?

Good idea especially if standards are set by, and there is some oversight by, Alamy.

 

IMO this would have to be part of a new Alamy exclusive contract offering certain privileges to some contributors in return for exclusivity. 

 

This could free up contributors to create more images and spend less time sitting at computer screens.

 

Isn't this what Henry Ford started - division of labour and specialisation - it revolutionised car production?

IMO, that would kill interest for 80% of otherwise interested contribs. because if processing-tagging

results exclusive, then 15 cents per image needs to be down under 10 cents per image...?

Instead, if any contrib wants to make use of tag service results outside of Alamy,

they might have to copy tags from IM instead of getting results emailed to them, & maybe

pay additional cents per image more for delivery of processed files...?

Would agree to image exclusivity, not photographer exclusivity, for a 55% cut to me instead of present 50%. I would also throw in RF for that 55%

As to processing and keywording, I would rather do it myself for quality reasons.
