There’s a place for us

Photosharing is huge on the internet…we all know this. This writeup on techcrunch shows that there is a need for us in the photo marketplace space. Flickr has spent time and energy to create the marketplace, so it is obvious there is value to selling user photos online. There’s a supply of photos online and a demand for these photos to be used in advertising. We just provide the tool to connect the two.

It makes it apparent that we offer a niche marketplace in that photos are specifically for branded advertising, not just anything deemed worthy by a photographer. By giving photographers direction and instruction on marketplace needs (i.e. want-ads) that advertisers will really want to buy, we create the demand.

Competition is flattery. Even if it’s a big fish like Flickr (aka Yahoo).
