Real Estate Tool of the Week: Deposit Photos

November 19 2012

obeo deposit photos 1Whether you're a REALTORĀ®, a blogger, or marketer (or a combination of all three), you're probably in constant need of great photographs and graphic images. I have dozens of sites I use on a regular basis. Some offer a free, but very limited stock of photos. Others offer a vast array of beautiful images, for a staggering price. But recently, I found a real estate tool called DepositPhotos.comDepositPhotos.com. I'm in love! It offers millions of premium high-quality stock photos, royalty-free images, illustrations and vector art at very affordable prices!

Most of you know that I'm a bit addicted to social media. So the fact that I could login to this site with Facebook was a huge plus for me. One less username and password that I have to remember!

The next thing I loved was the easy to use search interface, which makes it simple to find exactly the type of image I need. And talk about variety! This site has a huge inventory of images to choose from. Another great feature is that each image can be purchased in a variety of sizes. Most images are available in four to six different sizes. But my positively favorite thing about this site is the price. I can buy images for as low as one dollar each, depending on size. Most of the images that I purchase are for use in a blog post or on our Facebook Fan Page. Both of these require web sized images, which usually cost me two dollars each.

How can you benefit from this site? Here are some great ways you could use these very affordable images:

1. If you're a blogger, you should always include a terrific image in every post.

2. Create some fun Facebook banners. You can do it for your profile page or for a business page. Either way, you can create fun seasonal or holiday banners. The banners are 851 x 315 pixels.

3. Create photo quotes and messages. These types of images are very popular on all the social media sites. Instead of sharing someone else's, why not make your own? Here is one I made for Obeo's Facebook business page. I used a simple photo processing program to add the text, then I watermarked it for additional branding, and posted it to Facebook. It was shared 38 times. I consider that a success!

4. Brochures, advertisements, and a variety of other marketing pieces.
