As photographers and artists, we like nothing more than sharing our images for the worlds viewing pleasure. Nothing beats that feeling and reaction an image provokes in a person, but what if there was somewhere that paid for them being viewed? This is where ClickASnap comes in, created by tech entrepreneur Tom Oswald.
ClickASnap is a recent up and coming website developed with that in mind, paying users for their content being viewed. Taken with those artists, business owners, photographers, and so on at the forefront of their model. Costing nothing to upload images, this is potentially the perfect tool for music, film and art fans, with growth of the site only making things more rewarding as time goes on.
Friend of Tom Oswald, world-renowned photographer Mike Browne joined the site and spoke fondly of the site, its future potential, and gave insight into how the site works through video.
Creator Tom Oswald also spoke of the idea and drive behind ClickASnap saying “I am an avid photographer and was tired of watching photo hosting sites like Facebook, Instagram and many more make money off my photos as well as take the rights to my content use as they wish. Having seen the success of YouTube and Spotify’s monetisation programmes I realised that we could emulate these, but for photos, and ClickASnap was born.
Where you can upload photos for free, people can look at them for free but a percentage of the revenue the site earns from its multiple revenue streams is shared with the content creators. Whilst it’s not huge amounts of money per view, it is more than anywhere else pays me per view!
The site also offers on-demand printing capabilities and has a huge plethora of features as well as 700,000+ images viewed per month. We have big plans for 2018 including a whole host of new features, and there being no cost to use the site, why would you not upload your photos to the site?”
