PRESS RELEASE: Shutterstock Launches Shuttertweet: A New Way for Submitters to Showcase their Stock Images and Footage on Twitter
Shuttertweet instantly sends out tweets when new images and footage have been added to submitters' portfolios.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 19, 2009 -- Shutterstock, the world's largest subscription-based stock photo agency, announced today the launch of Shuttertweet, a new tool for Twitter that empowers stock image and stock footage submitters by instantly sending out messages (or "tweets") announcing when new images and footage clips have been added to their Shutterstock portfolios.
Shuttertweet also enables submitters to monetize their use of Twitter. Submitters earn a referral commission from anyone who makes a purchase after clicking on the link to their Shutterstock gallery in one of their Shuttertweet messages.
In addition, Shuttertweet sends an update regarding submitters' download counts on a daily basis to share the success of their portfolios with people that follow them on Twitter.
"Shuttertweet is truly a win-win for our submitters: not only does it automatically showcase their work, it also allows them to make money via our affiliate marketing program using Twitter," said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock.
To sign up, submitters login to the submit site and click the option under "Make Money" or click here to enable Shutterstock to send tweets on their behalf. Submitters can deactivate Shuttertweet at any time.
"Shuttertweet is a great way to advertise my work," said Jake Hellbach (Shutterstock submitter name: JHDT Stock Images LLC), a successful Shutterstock photographer and videographer based in Sugarland, Texas. "I used to post links to my images and footage clips manually on Twitter when I had the time, but with this tool, I know my name is getting out to stock photo and stock footage buyers each day, so I can get back to shooting."
Founded in 2003, Shutterstock is the largest subscription-based stock photo agency in the world. Its outstanding collection of premium photos, illustrations, and vectors combined with a selection of innovative, user-friendly subscription plans has made Shutterstock a trusted resource for an expanding global customer base. An industry pioneer in selling royalty-free stock by subscription, Shutterstock was also the first online photo agency to offer editorial photos and launch a video library. Shutterstock Footage offers a comprehensive library of royalty-free video clips available on a per-clip basis or by subscription. For more information, visit Shutterstock.com.
