09 Dec 2007 Branded Free Stuff

While at the PhotoPlus exhibition in October, Steve Kapsinow gave me a StockXpert t-shirt and lens cloth. I was understandably grateful and have made good use of both items.

Then I discovered an idea of another blogger who publishes a series of posts called Free Shirt Friday. How it works is simple. Companies in his niche send him t-shirts and he publishes a post about the company including a photo of himself wearing the t-shirt. They get free publicity and he gets a free t-shirt. What a great idea!

The Microstock Diaries version of Free Shirt Friday will be different in a few ways:

  • Given the smaller niche, I’m keeping it open and calling it free ‘stuff’ so it doesn’t have to be t-shirts
  • As this is a photography related blog, I’m going to stretch my photographic creativity in creating the photos
  • I’m not necessarily doing it on Fridays

I’ve asked each microstock agency where I contribute for some branded free stuff to get the series started. The first post will be about StockXpert in recognition of their spontaneous gift.

If you’d like to send some branded free stuff from your microstock or photography related company, contact me for my current address – I move around a lot.
