Speaking of Photos….

From the discussion on the Photography Controversy it appears that many of you buy photos, however there have not been many new ads on Above Level.  I have to wonder why, when the price is sooo reasonable ($20/month) and it’s so easy to do.  When you buy a photo from a photographer with digital technology you can ask them to email the photo to Black Eye Beth (blackeyebeth@gmail.com) and she will create your ad using whatever text you supply.  That’s literally, all there is to it!  I’m no techno-wizard and have been the guinea pig for figuring out how to do things on this site and if I can do it, you can too. 

So far, the photographers have not charged for emailing photo files, even when I ask to have the photo sent to more than one publication.  It is included in the price of the hard copy.  I would like to see them offer a lower price for just an email file so that I can have the files that I don’t want on my wall, sent to any publication or website where I want to advertise.  I think that $10 for each time a file is used would be reasonable.  That would make the total price for a front page ad on Above Level, $30.  Not bad, huh? 

Above Level offers advertising options that are just not possible in the magazines.  You can have your ad linked to your website or to another photo.  BEB is working on being able to link your ad to video.  I’m sure the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.  If BEB can’t do it, she’ll figure out how to get ‘er done.
