500px Announces the Public Availability of 500px for Business
Nov 15 16
500px announced the public availability of 500px for Business, a suite of photography-on-demand services. 500px for Business enables global scale, custom, on-demand photography, the ability to source VR imagery, and the power to measure imagery conversion success. Already in use by major international brands, including travel heavyweights Lonely Planet and Airbnb, 500px is the large on-demand photography platform in the world, and the only one offering clients deep insight into image conversion. 500px for Business draws upon its eight million global photographers to make on-demand photography available and affordable on a scale never before possible. Now, regional, national and global brands can – in a matter of hours – mobilize hundreds or thousands of photographers internationally against a custom creative brief, at a cost comparable to buying stock imagery. They can then pick from hundreds to thousands of bespoke images, including 360-degree photos, in a matter of days or weeks, and test those images for customer response. 500px makes the client experience easy and offers guidance through the process: Create: The client creates an Assignment brief, which includes details of what is to be shot, specific locations, time slots for shooting, deadlines and a budget allocation. 500px then matches the project to vetted photographers regionally or internationally. Capture: Photographers from L.A. to Thailand submit custom shots if they accept the assignment. With millions of photographers from around the world, almost every city in the world can easily be covered. Photos can be purchased for exclusive use by the client if desired. Curate: The client reviews all images in the dashboard and chooses the best ones for immediate use and testing. Creative teams can use a collaborative dashboard to organize, select and test imagery. Convert: Once a set of effective images is chosen, customers can add a snippet of web code to their website. The images are then cycled through on the customer’s site, tagged with the action desired, be that click, purchase, etc. Those photos that achieve that goal stay in rotation, while others are dropped. Pricing: 500px for Business engagements start at about $3,000 per month and up, depending on scope.
