“Free stock photography will save you money, time, and adds high-quality visual appeal to your marketing content.”

AUTHOR’S NOTE: If your company is involved in any content marketing at all, you’ll likely need a stock photo from time to time. I started thinking about writing this blog post when I noticed stock photo websites interacting with Fortified Marketing’s Instagram account. After looking into the interactions a little more I was happy to see that many of them were FREE.

Visual content is far more likely to be shared online. Knowing that, high-quality stock photos are a good resource for blog posts, social media updates and other marketing communications that require a photography component. We’ve compiled a lengthy list of stock photo websites that are 100% FREE and easily accessible for you to use. Before that, here are 3 ways to use FREE stock photos that can benefit your content marketing:

1.    Budget-friendly

Stock photos have the ability to save companies loads of cash on professional photography. Most companies can manage with the abundance of FREE stock photos from the websites listed below. The quality and variety are truly comparable and sometimes better than what you‘d expect to find on a website with monthly fees. If you plan to use the pictures for commercial purposes, then budget friendly high-quality options can be found all over the web for FREE.

2.    Time-saving

Taking these photos yourself is too time-consuming and can be far too costly. If your company is creating content on a regular basis with a smaller team, it might be hard to foresee every image your team will need for marketing in the future. Free stock photo websites offer this flexibility. You can find photos whenever they are needed.

3.    Adds visual interest & variety

There are endless photo options in various colour schemes and textures. You can choose from an incredible array of pictures and odds are, you'll find the perfect one for what you had in mind.
