Say Goodbye to Beta Soon
We’re doing some spring cleaning at SnapVillage. Our web team has been working hard to fix the last few bugs in the site so we can get out of beta soon. You should notice an increase in performance right away as we release these improvements. Many of you sent in suggestions for new features and reported problem spots on the site. Thanks for sending us your ideas and reporting bugs when you found them. We need everyone’s help to keep the Village running smoothly.

SnapVillage hits Newsstands Everywhere
In January, we announced that we’re ramping up our marketing efforts. We’re primarily targeting graphic designers, art directors and other creative professionals. You can find our first print ad in the February issue of Creativity Magazine, introducing SnapVillage to future buyers (check out the ad below). You’ll see more ads in the March issue of Creativity, GD USA and the April/May issue of Photoshop User. Watch for ads in even more magazines coming out in May and June.

Coming Soon to a Mailbox Near You!
We’re not just reaching out with magazine ads, we’re also contacting buyers directly with our direct mail campaign. It will include a special feature to bring graphic designers into our community. We don’t want to give away the surprise, so stay tuned for more details!

Get ready to welcome some new neighbors to SnapVillage. Keep your ideas and images coming!

SnapVillage Ad in Creativity Feb-08 issue




1. David Fowler - March 15, 2008

Good news! With images now available to worldwide buyers and the new marketing campaign we should start to see our faith in SV rewarded with sales. Any chance of introducing an editorial use section of SV for (non released) photos of celebrities/politicians etc.? I would certainly like to contribute those sort of photos. Anyone else out there who would like this? As ever, happy selling out there, David

2. Mike McDonald - March 17, 2008

Do you guys have a graphic designer working on these print ads, and if so, have they ever heard the term “kerning”?

My guess is that they haven’t.

I like the simplicity but, this ad assumes that all old school designers have heard the term “microstock” before. I just learned about microstock two months ago. perhaps the words “stock photography” might be more helpful than just using an industry buzz word

4. RTimages - April 1, 2008

Any news on FTP so we can upload all our images in anticipation of the influx of buyers, I like the site and want to upload more images but I just don’t have the time for uploading 5 at a time, and I don’t want to risk sending my images to the states via snail mail.

Biggest improvement will be FTP. Sorry but without it, SV still useless for me.
