Take caution where you get your images

Last Update: January 12, 2014

I got to say, I LOVE images like the one above and also I can't wait to have my photo shoot too...there's something about images that draws me in and gets to create a train of ideas and also the magic they hold of freezing a moment in time.

You can actually take your last 10 seconds with you into the future through media...like images.

Since I joined WA two months ago, there's something that is outstandingly clear as you build your website, you need high quality IMAGES to 'break text' as it is so often called here.

Once upon a time....


Well not so far away, there was this lady who took some training in November 2013 where Kyle the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate highlighted that she needed to add relevant images to her website. The hunting started and a trail was made in Wiki, Flickr, Google Images, Fiverr and so forth. Oh it dawned upon her that royalty free images were a steep price to pay.

With the itch to get great images, she shopped around in the "Share your beautiful content" Isle and "Give and take" Isle where she visited lots of websites to not only leave comments, but to look for images that sparked her creativity and talaa...Chris Lee from WA and the founder of GetToSaving.com had eye watering images and was kind to guide her to the image wonderland. She asked and got the answer she desperately needed

The solution to avoiding any possibility of being sued...

Happy she was as she followed the link to a post with WA that showed her how to get gigantic, powerful, captivating and royalty free images. She quickly did what the post suggested and signed up for BigStock 7 day free trial. It was magical for her since she turned words into images within seconds. Soon, she used the images as the source of content creation and on day six, of the free 7 day trial, she had do cancel her subscription. Why? Hang on for it

But I want 1000's of images NOT 30...

The free trial only allowed her to download 5 images daily. oh oh...that won't work with her goal of writing 1,000 blog entries by December 26th 2015. Oh what to do now? She remembered she had such a loving and supportive family and the husband, the mom and the brother gave her access to the debit and credit cards for a total of 8 cards to use for the free trial. It was heaven for her. She piled up the photos and recorded here gratitude in her journal daily. By using the same computer to access the images made her stay logged in no matter which trial she was on. Hint hint.

A little greed...but justifiable


On her third free trial, she decided to go for the full trial and grab 5 more images and oops, on the fourth download, her card was charged $69 which of course recurs each month. Now she got to understand why the post that I will leave a link below, suggested you stay in only for six days. The charge to here card, added a soft smile to her mocha face because she knew the power that was just released to her with 150 images in one month. Heck, it was time to say thank you to BigStock for 90 free images.

Where is this lady now? Probably somewhere creating content for her websites or helping someone get what they want in their online business. She's a mystery for sure and she goes with a weird code name of

I Just Do It Now!!

The End.

P.S.S. Each day you have 5 images to download and if you forget, the images won't be carried forward. Set a reminder to help you with that either you are getting the free trial or not

At the end of the day, it's all about images...from blogs, to marketing materials, to branding to everything, you shrink your speech with images and it's a universal language too

I got to say, I have learned a lot in two months. I have depended on this community to help me reach where I am in my online business and I do my very best each day to offer help utilizing all the courses from WA.

Thanks
