At last there’s a photo library offering images that are relevant to South African and African markets. Digital Stockvel is a library of images with a warmth that truly reflects locals as they go about their colourful lives. Still in development, the site is populated by local photographers with lifestyle content constantly sought after by the marketing industry, guided by industry experts on what is needed.
Where It All Began
Spurred on by personal experience with a complete lack of relevant imagery for social media posts, SEO articles and other marketing campaigns for clients, I took it upon myself to create what is clearly needed in our industry. As this is not Silicone Valley, there aren't really Start-Up Business Loans made available to young entrepreneurs, so being a digital company, it seemed fitting to go directly to the consumer themselves with a digital campaign. And here you are. Nothing good comes for free, so please take a look at the offers on the table for your funding - take advantage of more than one to make the most of the once off site & subscription deals.
Digital Stockvel aims to provide local photographers with a repeated source of fair income on a library of their images and in turn support and broaden the industry. Expensive studios and massive equipment are no longer a necessity with the advancement of smart phone technology. Contributors can come from far, outlying areas with less funds, but be empowered as entrepreneurs, providing local brands with rich and relevant imagery that speaks to their market.
Where Will The Funds Go?
- 65% - Development of the site
- 15% - Digital Media Spend to on-board even more photographers
- 8% - Events to empower, uplift and educate up-and-coming photographers
- 12% - Financial Fees for crowdfunding campaign, in order to raise funds in ZAR
This Isn't Just Another Idea
This project has been quietly in the works for a year now, planning and forecasting meticulously. With industry experience specifically in Digital Marketing and Web Development, this is what I live and breath. The only challenge has been funding, otherwise this solution is rearing and ready to go as you can see from the website previews displayed above.
It is unreal that in 2017, we are not all accurately represented in the media, in marketing campaigns or in published content in general. With more than 4 race groups and a vast melting pot of cultures and lifestyles, it is time we use relevant stock to depict our country and people.
From the Digital Stockvel team - Happy Heritage Day.
