If you work with media, you are probably already familiar with iStockPhoto.com – if you aren’t familiar with them, I’m happy to introduce you!
e-Learning instructional designers and developers, graphic artists, Web developers, technical writers, video production specialists, voice-over actors, eBook authors and publishers, copywriters, advertising gurus…the list could go on for several more lines. I know that there are several terrific sites on the WWW for finding and downloading stock photos, illustrations, audio, and video files.
For years, I’ve stuck with iStockPhoto.com because, well…they just make it easy for me to find, save to Lightbox, purchase, and download stock files. Awhile ago, they began sending emails to members highlighting free, high-quality stock files.
In this economy in the USA, more and more people are starting their own independent consulting businesses. Freelancers and freelancing are growing in numbers each year. So, it’s no surprise that an “old” SlideShare.net presentation of mine is still popular. It receives a lot of Views and is “Favorited” often by other SlideShare users.
While I’m working on some upcoming blog posts, I thought I’d take time today to share my presentation on this page with you. The information is still true and current. The economy produces challenges for small businesses. But, hang in there. You can do it. Believe in yourself. Work hard. Good luck!
