Flickrpreneur: New opportunities to make money with Flickr

Posted on: May 30, 2006

I’ve inspired Flickpreneur concept from one of RussellDavies’s flickr photo. In this picture, he shows his books. Everything seems usual, but not finished, he added some notes to pictures. On notes, he tells a bit about book and add link to amazon with his referral (check out here). It means, if you enjoyed Russell’s photos, you just look at; you can instantly buy it on Amazon. Maybe it is first product placement ever on flickr.

This little idea may big impact for users, brands and flickr itself. Let me explain, users of flickr or uploaders may use their affiliate programs on flickr. For example, if you take a picture of Threadless tshirt, just add note links of how to buy it. These notes are contextuals, not irritating for viewers. Viewers have a chance to buy Tshirt he just seen on his friend wearing or he has a chance, he just witness performance of brand on picture. This concept gives users make a money, that's why i named it flickrpreneur. I tried some initiative with my threadless affiliate program. Here and here.

For entrepreneur minds, maybe it is inspiring to develop application that makes it easy to add affiliate programs' link on photos. Then, Flickr, you should encourage and constitute flickrpreneur concept and make big money.

Finally, this concept is very important for brands. Branded content and participation is very critical on todays' marketing. Lets look at how Amazon (pionner of marketing) esteem customer images.

"Sometimes product descriptions and manufacturer supplied images are not enough. Here's your chance to help millions of fellow customers learn more about how a product looks, behaves and performs. Think of customer uploaded image as reviews in pictures."

In conclusion, product placement on photos has great potential both providers and advertisers. Maybe we see new kinds of ad networks. If you like theconcept, please help me to spread the idea.

Flickrpreneur: New opportunities for advertising on Flickr

Product placement on photos is a new concept and it has great potential both providers and advertisers. Use notes in order to direct people to buy product they just seen it in action

[...] Dün diğer blogda Flickrpreneur diye bir konseptten bahsettim. Fikrin ilham kaynağı Russell Davies’in aşağıdaki fotoğrafıydı. Russell bu fotoğrafta bir masanın üzerinde okuduğu kitapları sergiiliyor. Herşey olağan gözüküyor, ancak resme daha yakından baktığımızda Russell’ın resimlere notlar eklediğini görüyoruz. Her kitabı ayrı ayrı saran notlarda kitap hakkında küçük açıklamalar ve kitabın Russell’in referesiyle(affiliate) Amazon’da satın alma linki eklemiş. Fotoğraflara ürün yerleştirme yeni bir fikir. İşte bu fikir yepyeni bir reklam networkunun başlangıcı olabilir. [...]

I like it. Good stuff!

[...] Via Jeff Jarvis Via Marketallica is an interesting and very clever way of selling things via your flickr account. When you mouse over Russell Davies’ books you are presented with a mini-review and a link to an affiliate link to buy the book from Amazon. Makes sense. The same can be done with Threadless T-Shirts [...]

Hi , is it possible to use this mechanism on movies?

[...] [Via Marketallica]Russell Davies have posted the pictures of these books on Flickr. He has come up with an ingenious way of recommending books to users. He uploads the picture of his books and then added some notes to them. This could be a great product placement idea on flickr. Marketallica is very excited about the concept so am I. [...]

It’s funny you should mention this, because I wrote a long post about a similar functionality in a new ad campaign yesterday.

I should note here (as I did at the start of the post) that the content of the ad campaign is ENTIRELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK. That said:

[...] Here’s a couple I enjoyed: Flickrprenuership – mashing up flickr, amazon etc IKEA Everyday Fabulous Campaign in NYC Orgasmic Chocolates – A New Luxury Chocolate Company [...]

i had an interesting experience at the adidas store in berkeley. i took pictures of new adicolor shoes (the fafi ones) and i was asked not to take pictures in the store.

the fafinette adidas

however, i posted the pictures to flickr with adidas as a tag. you would think that they would encourage such cross pollination.

Regarding your comment at Exciting Commerce: http://ecommerce.typepad.com/exciting_ecommerce/2006/06/social_shopping.html#comment-18099942

I did not write about spam photos but about spamming the photos of others. You can do whatever you want with your own photos and you can add relevant notes or comments to the photos of others.
You put a generic note on both photos and a link with your referral-name. Which valuable information did you add to the photos, for the brand or the viewer? You spammed these photosand your excuse is: “On the other side, on flickr, uploader can manage rights, so uploader can protect their photos from spammer.” So I have to forbid comments and notes for almost everyone just because some spammer want to use it for placing a referral-link?

This is a great concept. I recently posted on my blog about how Nikon is using Flickr for advertising in a more “official” sense. The pontential for misuse is high as Yahoo starts to find ways to make money from Flickr … I thought the Nikon Stunning Gallery was a good way to leverage the community without alienating them because of a commercial message.

@rohit
You are absolutely right Rohit

I object!

I am not sure if everyone here is farmiliar with Russell Davies’ work but I he definetly has not invented a new advertising medium.

If you were a reader of his blog which is of a very high standard, you would realise that his motivations are far from capitalist nor is he interested in the developmet of even more spam on the internet.

What a great planner..

I see nothing bad in being capitalist.

Product view in a Flickr picture is a great idea that reminds me of URL being shown at the end of a video on YouTube or Google Video. Go entrepreneur of Flickr!

Thank for the great article. I can learn something new today from your tips.

Its a great Idea. Better online work from home jobs and opportunities are emerging day by day. One of the great free home based opportunities for internet marketers is this one.
Its A GREat Idea and Yahoo will take note of it, i think.. In future we will see Featured Product Photos on FLickr and Others like Photobucket for sure..

Ya, its a great way to make money both for people and corporates like Yahoo and Google. I too think that this nice concept will propagate very fast and Featured product placements will rise. There is no question of placements of leading Companies / MNCs not rising on Flickr. Much better placements than on paper ads..

Maybe I should put some beauty picture on the website.

that is pretty clever, I wonder if he get’s a lot of clickthrus to Amazon. What does Flickr think? is it within their terms and conditions? I think they’d want to be careful in order to keep marketers from spamming their platform.

Nah, can’t design simple graphics yet so I’ll pass.

Thank you for the tips and information provided in the post and am trying am a twitter member and i do post hubs to make money in hubpage. so many things to promote online business and make money, this will help a lot of people to find the best of the industry.

I always thought that using flickr was all about selling photos and pics only. And that the profit margins were a little small.

its a great ones that i look in this blog, i like it while i stay here.thank you for this good article

there are very easy ways using mozilla to snap online copies of photos from flickr, but always make sure that you have permission first.

Great Info! Thanks for the post!

So true-so true. Good points and well taken.

I’m really interested to see how Flickr makes money going forward. From what I understand, their use of yahoo ads isn’t going so well.

I am searching for picture marketing and find ur blog, I still think flickr has great potential for marketing or branding because article marketing has been so widely used that people have developed immune response for them…
nice article

Sumarwan,

The response level to local and national disasters is great but it’s a damn shame that so many people take advantage of the sad situations.

I mean everytime there is an earthquake, a flood, an oil spill – there’s always a group of heartless people who rip off tax payers.

This is in response to reading that 4 of Oprah Winfreys “angels” got busted ripping off the system. Shame on them!

While the functionality of a large handbag is a plus, they come in so many fashionable sizes and colors. No matter what style of handbags you like, you can find large ones that allow you to carry around whatever you need to , whether you’re going to work, on a trip or to a social function.

You can find these large handbags as cheap as around 20 dollars but also as high as a few thousand depending on the maker which is why it’s important that you know what you have to spend. You can find many handbags for reasonable prices but if you are looking for a designer bag you will pay a higher price. After you’ve decided on a brand or style it’s important to shop around for the best price regardless of where you shop. Although large handbags are not difficult to find you may have to shop around to find the one perfect for you.

Satchel bags are a popular large handbag that’s easy to find. These type of bags are worn across the shoulders and often have large handles. These can be located in a variety of styles used for purposes such as carrying books, gym gear, makeup etc. Retail locations typically carry these bags and they aren’t usually very expensive. The satchel is one type of handbag that is worn by men as well as women, and the movie character Indiana Jones typically carries one. You can use a satchel for just about any occassion.

You can find just about anything you might need online and these bags are not the exception. Handbags are aplenty online, in retail shops and in specialty stores alike making it easier to find what you are looking for.

You probably already know the one disadvantage to shopping online, you don’t get to physically see or handle the bag before you purchase it. Because of this it’s important to be really careful of who you buy from online especially if you are spending alot of money. In general, however, it is usually just as safe to buy handbags online as anywhere else, if you take the basic precautions.

You will find large handbag just about anyhwere in any number of styles and prices. It’s important that you have some idea what you are looking for before you go shopping. Then you’ll be able to narrow down your choices and locate sellers with the best deals on your new bag. Using the information above can make your search for large handbags much more simple..

Branded content and participation is very critical on todays’ marketing.

If you’re setting up a new company you may already be considering engaging the services of a chartered accountant to help you keep books and sort your accounts. Therefore, clients are overly satisfied with your excellent performance. The course can provide you a great help to learn and know more about the different business functions starting from financial reporting to managerial or cost accounting.

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you
using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome
if you could point me in the direction of a good
platform.

Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that
I have really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I
hope you write again very soon!

Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after
I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that
over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!

It ranks up there with the likes of getting to
meet Johnny Depp, the best dessert you ever ate, and your husband doing all laundry and cooking
for an entire month. Founded in March 2010,
Pinterest has become the fastest-growing social media site on the web,
gaining 145% more users since January 2012 alone. The
“following” and “followers” selection operates in the same
fashion as Google+ and Twitter.

I know this site gives quality dependent posts and
extra data, is there any other web page which presents these kinds of things
in quality?

It’s difficult to find educated people about this topic,
however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
Thanks

I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
else encountering problems with your site. It seems like some of the text within your content are running
off the screen. Can someone else please comment and
let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve
had this happen before. Appreciate it
