Some agencies are painful to deal with and produce very few sales. Other agencies are painless and produce few sales. YAY Images is the latter. But just to sweeten the deal, along with being great to deal with, sales are also starting to increase.
For some reason you’ve just got to like YAY Images, even though they wont be bringing in the big bucks for you. The site is clean and simple, upload is pretty easy, and when you do sell an image you get a decent amount for it. YAY Images is the kind of site you really want to do better than it currently is. Get on board and support this one guys.
The first big tick for YAY Images is it’s 50% commission from day one. These are the sort of sites you’ll want to get behind, ones that see their contributors as a valuable asset. It would be nice to get regular communication from the management as to how they are working to improve their marketing and sales volume. Sales are definitely picking up lately, and nothing is as good as seeing a file sold for $19.50 and knowing you get half of it.
It seems that most of YAY Images’ efforts lately have been centered around garnering a large network of distribution partners – other agencies that will also sell your images that are uploaded to YAY Images. They have successfully added a few new ones in recent times, but the effectiveness of this strategy remains to be seen. Also, the way these distribution sales are reported needs improving so that photographers can better track where their work is selling and for what amount.
YAY Images was one of the first microstock agencies that I joined, and I would do it all over again - especially now that sales seem to be improving. Supporting fair sites that are actively trying to improve their market reach is the way to go. Join YAY Images and feel like you’re improving the microstock world.
