Membawa Fotografi Menjadi Bisnis Online

Hingga sat ini saya masih terkagum-kagum dengan kesuksesan dan keefektifan Fotografer.net yang merupakan karya anak bangsa Indonesia dan diperuntukkan juga untuk komunitas Indonesia sendiri. Respons publik luar biasa dan betul-betul bisa menjadi representasi wajah Indonesia melalui stock foto yang ada disitu. Tapi saya pikir Fotografer.net belum terlalu sukses dalam menggali aspek bisnis dari situs yang mempunyai popularitas setinggi itu.

Nah, malam ini saya menemukan konsep bisnis yang menjanjikan di situs baru yang mengkhususkan diri di photo sharing, tapi sekalian bisa terjadi jual-beli terhadap foto-foto yang di share. Jadi member tidak hanya sekedar display hasil karyanya, tapi juga memberi kesempatan pada siapapun untuk memiliki foto aslinya (dengan resolusi tinggi tentunya) dengan membayar harga yang terjangkau (USD 1). Kok murah? Anda harus memikirkan kondisi dimana jumlah transaksi jual beli yang terjadi mencapai jutaan kali. Nah? Big business kan? Lihat iStockphoto.com untuk mempelajari dan ikut gabung di konsep brilian ini.

Berikut saya copy introduction dari iStockphoto.com
